False eyelashes can take any makeup look to the next level, but the problem is that applying them can sometimes be really tricky. If you’ve never used false lashes before, these tips can help you make this process less difficult.


The first thing is to check if you’re falsies fit your eye shape, which often isn’t the case. If they’re too wide, use the tweezers to cut them little by little until you get the perfect shape.

Applying the Glue

Falsies are delicate, so you don’t want to squeeze the glue straight from the tube onto the lash base. Q-tips, for example, can come in pretty handy for applying a thin layer of glue, while you’re holding the lashes with tweezers.

Wait For the Glue to Dry

One of the most important steps that many girls skip is to wait for the glue to dry a bit. Wait 30 to 40 seconds for it to become a little tacky, so the lashes will stick better.

Individual Lashes

In case you want to up your game, you can always use individual lashes that are a cheaper option and they look more natural than lash strips. Individual lashes are easier to apply and some of them can even stay on for a week or two.
