How to Apply False Eyelashes for Beginners


2 minute read

Want the know how to apply the best natural looking false eyelashes? Whether you are a beginner or an experienced false eyelash wearer, our step-by-step instructions are easy to follow. 

Step 1: Remove your false eyelashes from packaging.  We recommend removing the clear plastic circle insert from packaging before removing the eyelashes.

To remove your false eyelashes from the circular lash tray, use the pad of your thumb.  Place your thumb onto the lashes as close to the band as possible and gently slide the lashes down.  Continue to do so for the length of the band, until the lashes have become unstuck from the tray. 

Step 2: Hold your false eyelashes to your eye to measure the length. If the false eyelashes are longer than the width of your eye, gently trim the false eyelashes to the proper length.  Trim from the outside and always trim less than you think you need.  Once your false eyelashes are trimmed to the proper length you will not have to trim them for subsequent wears.
