How To : Get Lashed Up

Beautiful, youthful, flirty and effortlessly sexy, who wouldn't want gorgeously long, thick Cheryl Cole-style eyelashes? 
But it's not surprising that luxurious lashes are so desirable: they add instant glamour, and widen small, tired eyes to make you look instantly younger.

There is a catch: applying false lashes can be a hit-and-miss affair. So here's a step-by-step guide.


1. Remove the lashes from the pack and hold them against your eye to measure them against the length of your own natural lash line. False lashes are often too long for your eye, so ensure you cut the strips to fit. If you leave them too long, they will drag your eyes down - which will have the opposite effect of the youthful look you are aiming for.

I used Konad fake eyelash :

2 Now you have two choices: 

  • Either apply the adhesive on to the full length of the base of the false lashes or, 
  • Using a brush, place dots of adhesive along your own natural lash-line before pressing the false lash on to it.
I used first method/choice :

 3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the opposite eye. It is very important to wait 30 seconds for the adhesive to become tacky before applying the false lashes.

4. You can use Using tweezers, hold the strip lash in the centre. Then place it in the centre of your natural lashes. Then, again using the tweezers, push the inner side of strip lash in place, followed by the outer side.

  • If you don't feel comfortable with tweezers then use your fingers to apply lashes by following same technique used in step 4.
5. Using a 'pinching-and-push' technique with the tweezers to pinch together the strip lashes and your natural lashes, then 'push' them towards your eyelids. Do this all the way across the lashes and repeat for the other eye.

  • You can also use ear bud to push lashes.

Eyeliner can be added if needed, or mascara, but this needs careful application to the natural lashes only. 

You can also use fake eyelashes without eye make-up. Try it. :)
