Do you have a problem fixing fake eyelashes? Do they fall off frequently or stick out at odd angles, making you conscious about them all the time? Fake eyelashes can enhance the beauty of your eyes and is one of the most important elements of your facial makeup. However, for most women eyelashes are the toughest part of their makeup regimen. These tips will help you glam up your looks with the perfect eyelash application.
Buy Eyelashes That Fit Your Eye Shape
Eyelashes available today are hardly recognizable from the types that were available a few years ago. The first thing to do when you shop for eyelashes is to make sure they fit your eye shape. This will make sure that common problems like drooping and poking is avoided.
The next step is to create a ‘C’ by bending the edges of the eyelashes. This will ensure that the poker straightness of the edges gets removed and they fit the curved edges of the eye. Use eye curlers to help them remain there without the corners straightening on their own. This will hold the eyelashes in place.
Glue the Lashes To Fix Them In Place
Using glue at the ends of the lash strip can also prevent them from falling off. Wait for a few moments after you have applied the glue so that they become tacky and sticky enough to fit in place. You can spare yourself all the hassle and buy ready-glued lashes which can be peeled off from the pack and stuck on directly.
Use a Liquid Liner to Cover the Edges
Once you have fixed the false eyelashes in place, let them remain for a few minutes to allow the glue to dry completely. After that run a liquid liner gently over the eyelashes to conceal the edges and the seams of the strip. While applying the liner, push the angled applier along the edge of the eyelashes to secure it firmly.
The Final Step
To avoid the falsies from being easily discovered, you can apply mascara over the top to blend the false eyelashes with the real ones. Choose mascara that only adds color and does not create the appearance of thickness. If there is a hairline gap that still shows between the eyelid skin and the lashes, you don’t have to get started all over again. Just fill in the gap with more black liner using a fine brush. Even eye shadow can be used to conceal the gap effectively.
Now, that was easy wasn’t it? Patience is the key to fixing eyelashes perfectly right the first time. Take some time to inspect the effect of every step before you move on to the next.
