False Eyelashes 101 for Pageant Girls

Fake eyelashes are fun, but can be a mess. Believe it or not, they’re a lot easier to use than you think! All you need are the false eyelashes, small scissors, glue, tweezers, and a bit of patience. Before putting the eyelashes on, have all of your eye makeup done. (This includes mascara!)

How to Apply False Eyelashes

  • First, align the eyelashes to your eye. If the lashes are too long, cut them (per lash) down to fit the natural line of your upper eyelid. I bend the eyelashes (slightly!) in the middle to give them a more natural curve.
  • When the eyelashes are measured to your eye, apply glue to the back. There are various ways to do this. I take a toothpick and apply it to the eyelashes. This helps from getting too much glue and is more controlled than applying straight from the bottle. Another option is to put a small amount of glue on the back of your hand and swipe the end of the eyelash in it. A warning about the glue: I was always taught, ‘a dab will do ya, a gob will goo ya.” The same applies to this. Be conservative with the amount of glue you use; otherwise, your fingers will stick to the eyelash and you’ll end up ripping them off. Not to mention in worst case scenario, where the glue drips into the eyes. OUCH.
  • When the glue is applied wait a few seconds for the glue to set. Use the tweezers and press the center to your eye first, then hold the inner and outer corners tightly until they dry. Try to keep them as close to the natural lash line as possible. Grip the ends of the lashes so that your fingers won’t get glued in with the lashes! Some people prefer to apply them from the outer corner, pressing towards the inner corner. This works, too! I prefer from the center first, that way I guarantee that they are lined up correctly with my eye. (If it doesn’t work the first time, apply as much patience as needed to get both eyelashes on perfectly.) Lift your fingertips after 30 seconds. Ta-da!
  • When you’re done, add another layer of mascara. It will blend your natural eyelashes with the false ones. Also, if you add over-eyeliner, it will blend in the glue. You can also crimp the eyelashes now to open up the eye.

Removing them is easy. You can either peel them off or use make-up remover. If you want to use the eyelashes again, soak them in warm water and peel off the old glue.

Final Thoughts on False Eyelashes

Individual lashes are applied in the same manner, using glue to stick each one. For either style of eyelashes, the lashes should be longest on the outer corner of the eye. Your natural eyelashes are like that, so your faux ones should be, too. It may take a little practice, but once you get it down, you can apply them both in 5 minutes.  If you are consistently having trouble with false eyelashes, check that you measured them correctly and that you aren’t using too much glue. Different brands have different levels of length and thickness. While they look different, they’re applied the same way. Be patient, you can get it! With practice, you’ll be able to use false eyelashes in the blink of a lovely-lashed eye! What are your false eyelash questions, tips or favorite brands? Let me know in the comment box below!
