I bought two boxes of falsies (6 pairs in total) at Christmas and have been practising since then.  Initially they seem tricky, but  slowly you will get the hang of them.  I’ve worn them to work a few times – much to everyone’s amusement and at the beginning, but now they stay on for the whole time. I use the brand Eyelure  and have been very pleased with them.  They advise you to apply the glue and leave them for around 30 seconds so that it get’s tacky.  Then apply with tweezers (get’s easier with time), And patting them down with  the top end of the tweezer until they are dry.  Do this AFTER applying the rest of your makeup.

Hi!

I had a pair applied by a make-up artist on my wedding morning. I loved them and they looked great, but they did come off in the evening when I was touching up my eye make up in the ladies..I was tipsy so I probably wasn’t gentle enough. I would recommend wearing a natural looking pair though not a dramatic obvious pair. Good luck.

I use fale lashes all the time, any time I’m getting dressed up for a night out etc.  I always buy Ardell brand from Wal-mart or the Quo brand and I use LashGrip glue (I find it’s the best one).  They are tricky at first but mine NEVER come off.  The trick is to choose ones that look like a natural extension of your own lashes, don’t pick ones that are outrageously long or thick they will look unatural.  You can find some great tutorials on youtube but here are a few key tips I learned through trial and error.  If you do these things you can’t go wrong:

1) take the lashes out, hold them up to your eye then use scissors to trim them so they fit perfectly (if your lashes are too wide they will come off bc the end will press against your skin, also trim them from the inner corner of your eye, not the outer corner, the outer corner is the prettiest part)

2) roll the lashes around in your fingertips for a few seconds to loosen and work the band so it isn’t stiff 9if it’s stiff it will pop off your eyelid and stick out)

3) put a think line of glue along the band and this is the MOST IMPORTANT PART, wait for the glue to start drying for a full minute before you place them on your lid this increases tackiness and helps with placement so they aren’t sliding around

4) stick the middle part of the lash on the middle part of your lashline then use your finger to stick outer corner then the inner corner down…i usually hold my finger on each side of the lash until the glue starts to grip my eyelid.

5) also, put all your make-up on except your mascara before the lashes, then as a las ttouch if you want you can put mascara on top of the falsises to help blend your own lashes into the falsies..

 

try these tips and after a few tries it should be easy!! good luck! show us pics if you try it out!

They can be easy to apply if you have a steady hand and patience.  Also, don’t buy cheapies, make sure you have a quality pair and keep a pair of tweezers nearby to place them.  Practice if you haven’t used them before.  I did my sister’s falsies at my wedding (as well as my mother’s makeup – at MY WEDDING) and they didn’t take more than a few minutes between trimming the falsies and applying them.

i can’t seem to ever put them on close enough to the lash line and the end up look stupid. they also always come up in the corners of my eyes. i’ve been youtubing tutorials though so i will practice more lol. i looooove when other people do it for me though, they always look awesome!!

@MissTX:  It’s always best if you trim the lashes down a bit so they stay out of the inside corners of your eyes!  The problem with putting them right at the inside is also that your tear ducts are right there and loosen the glue, making them come off sooner than they should!  When I apply falsies I normally trim the original lash from the inside by about 1/4.

Super easy. 

For some people, it does require some practice and patience.

Get yourself a box, and sit down and try it out a few times.  Don’t be too hard on yourself.

Otherwise, hire a professional.

@MissTX:  if they’re popping up in the corners then they might be too long..that’s where trimming them comes in and make sure you glue all the way to the edges

Most MUA will use individual lashes which are way better.  You have to apply those with tweezers, and it will take a little while… but it looks AMAZING! 

The other thing to consider is eyelash extensions.

I agree with what has been said. I was told that you should cut off some of the end that would sit closest to your nose. I thought they were really easy to use.
