Gigantic Influences Of How To Apply False Eyelashes
For most ladies putting on false eyelashes perfectly, can be a nightmare without having the eyelash bands lift up at the tear ducts or, and they fall off before the end of the party. Poorly applied false eyelashes can look terribly fake, heavy and embarrassing. So, you ladies should master the applying technique of false eyelashes to the best possible chic and glamorous look.
Kurtis Dam-Mikkelsen, a classically-trained makeup artist, gave us four simple tips on how to apply the new NARS lush false eyelashes as seen spring 2015 runways. Yes, NARS has jumped into the false eyelashes with a new line of natural-looking, reusable, and natural-fiber lashes that is available in eight styles.
These new NARS eyelashes cost around $20. The NARS eyelashes look fairly natural, and there are no tacky glitter styles or rainbow gems on its edges. The eyelashes don’t have any lash glue, so you’ll need some eyelash adhesive to put them. This is uncommon as most cosmetics retailers don’t include glue with their false eyelashes, but it would have been very convenient if they did.
Meanwhile, Mikkelsen, who recently appeared as Miss Fame on RuPaul’s Drag Race television shows and who is also a famed drag personality, showed us how to apply false eyelashes using as few tools as possible. According to Mikkelsen all you need is mascara, a fresh set of eyelashes, and some black DUO eyelash adhesive.
DUO is one the sought after eyelash adhesive brands now, and any makeup artist will tell you eyelash glue is equally as important. DUO’s ingredients are safe, gentle and provide reliable eyelash support. You can use a single tube many times as you only need a little.
So, here’s how you can apply false eyelashes that look real:
Step 1: Apply Mascara On Your Natural Lashes
Curl your real eyelashes and comb on a coat of mascara. It will strengthen your natural lashes to support the weight of the false lashes.
Step 2: Trim The False Lashes To Fit
Cut the false eyelash down to the centre to make a big individual lash. This makes it easier to place the false eyelash band than a full untrimmed one, as it can become asymmetrical and wobbly.
Step 3: Apply Adhesive
One by one, trace each false lash band with a super-thin line of Due Eyelash Adhesive and wait for the adhesive to dry for a few seconds.
Step 4: Apply to the liquid eyeliner along your upper lids
You will be sure to fill in any gaps between the false lashes and your own to make them look more natural faces. Use brown, black, or dark gray eyeliner. Eyeliner isn’t necessary for fake eyelashes, it just makes them look more natural if you mess up.
Step 5: Allow to the glue to dry naturally
Once the strip is in place, you do not need to hold it down
Step 6: Put The Eyelashes On Using Your Fingers
Finally, put the false eyelashes on using your fingers. Don’t use tweezers. Start by placing the outer corner of the eyelash first, and apply a little pressure on it. Mikkelsen suggests putting the outer extension just a bit higher than the natural lashline for a dashing eye-lifting effect.
Now, while placing the inner lash, remember not to set the lash close to your tear ducts. This will give more width to your eyes. If you put the inner extensions of the false eyelashes close to the tear ducts, your eyes will appear narrower and even cross-eyed.
