I would get a makeup artist but I like how I do my makeup…However, I have never put lashes on before but I will be putting them on the day of my elopement. Fill me in on tips and tricks to put on lashes. What are the do’s and don’ts??? Do tell.

Coco Brown Walker :
watch some YouTube videos and practice. the biggest thing I’ve found is just making sure the lash is trimmed to the right length for your eye (chances are it’s not the right size right out of the box)

Make sure to measure lash strip if you use that to fit your natural eyelash line (cut excess off)
Curl your natural lashes before applying fake lashes
Use tweezers if your fingers aren’t nimble enough
Always make sure you let the glue get tacky for a few seconds before applying them.
Individual lashes look most natural but are more time consuming.
Apply mascara on both natural and fake lashes to bind them together for a more natural look. (Don’t forget to apply mascara on lower lashes!)
Line eyelash line with an eyeline (liquid and pencil give different looks) if you want more definition and/or your false eyelashes are not lined up perfectly (which is rare!)
Be careful taking them off and use eyelash glue remover so you don’t lose your natural lashes!

When you cut the excess off, only do so on the side facing out to your ears.
Let the glue get tacky for thirty seconds or so.
Also, try to apply the glue as even as you can on the lashes, making sure to not apply too much that it runs off onto the hairs themselves, this will cause clumping. I had issues with this when I first started… If this is an issue for you, it could be helpful to apply to glue to back of your hand first and run the lash band across the glue on your hand to apply as evenly as possible.
Tweezers can be helpful to placing the lashes.
Practice, practice, practice.

Buy some cheap lasehes at the drugstore to practice the process of putting them on, and then for your elopement buy nicer ones. Definitely practice multiple times and maybe try different lash lengths to see what looks best on your eyes

This board is really helpful… I’ve only worn falsies twice and let me tell you, both times were an absolute struggle. Do you ladies have a go-to brand/style?

Watch some youtube videos and definitely practice a few times before the big day!! It’s quite tricky and takes some practice to know exactly where to place it on your eyelid. If you put it too far one way or the other it can get messy and then you have to redo your whole eye.
Tips that haven’t already been covered:
– I always squeeze the glue onto the back of my hand and then use the back end of tweezers to apply the glue to the lashes. Then you wait 30 seconds to let it get tacky before putting them onto your eyeled.
– I always need to snip them a bit shorter which makes them a bit easier to apply(cut from the inside eye part)
-give yourself 20 mins or so at least to get used to them. They feel very weird at first, but then after a bit you forget they’re there.
