Tips for Realistic Looking Lashes

Tips for Realistic Looking Lashes

Brush It Out
If you’ve found your eye shape and have the falsies you want, now is the time to create a look that’s flawless and real. There are few things you can do to up the ante and get lashes that make people think “Maybe they’re real!” If you have a set of cheap falsies that have a thick, unnatural look, grab a clean mascara spoolie and get ready with the elbow grease. While the falsies are still sitting neatly in their packaging, sweep the spoolie across the lashes in a quick, strong, left to right motion (Don’t be too rough though – you may rip the lash). Do this for about a minute. Next, brush the lash from the band outwards. You’ll end up with a lash that looks more real.

Cut Your Falsies
Wearing false eyelashes right out of the box isn’t always a good idea. Depending on the length of the falsies, you may have to trim the lashes to fit your eyes. Before applying them, hold them up to your lid and measure how much you will need. Next, trim the excess using scissors. The result should be the same length as your lashes for a realistic look. If your lashes are too long, they will look very unnatural.

Wrap It Up
False eyelashes right out of the box won’t always have the look of a natural lash. It can get flattened and look fake once it is applied. To get your falsies into shape, wrap them around your finger. This will get the curl back and you won’t have a lash that looks too straight and it will conform to your natural eye.

Take Heed of Your Lash Line
When applying your false eyelashes, apply the lashes once the adhesive has become tacky. This may take a few minutes. Once the glue is tacky, apply the false lash strip as close to your natural lash line as possible. There’s been a rumored technique to apply the lashes under your lash line. But don’t do that (‘cause, ouch!).
