Updated on January 23, 2010

If you want to get the wow factor with your eyes, you need to learn how to apply false eyelashes correctly so that they not only stay in place, but also provide a fantastic feature to your whole look. There is a vast range to choose from.

You can go for the conservative style, which are the same size as your own lashes. This is a good choice if you are hoping to make yours look fuller but still natural or you could go for ultra long ones that flutter out each and every time you blink.

If you want to be truly outrageous you could opt for a pair that is emblazoned with colour and design. You certainly will be the talk of the town and it could add that extra something to your whole look.

How To Apply Fake Eyelashes

If this is a completely new experience for you, follow these tips to apply your eyelashes perfectly.

Take the eyelash strip and line it up to your own. If it hangs over the edge, it is too long so you will need to cut the end off.

Be careful where you cut the end as you do not want to make them too short. The best thing to do is to trim a little then line it up to your face. Then trim some more until you get to the optimal length that you are happy with.

To make it easier to know where to attach the false eyelash, use an eyebrow pencil and draw a line on your lid. This will now be your guide.

If you are using self adhesive strips, peel off the back strip and place it carefully on your guide line.

If you are using glue, put a dab on your finger and slide the edging of the lash through the glue. This is the best way to ensure that you do not use too much and end up with lumpy glue on your face.

Gently place the lash along your eyebrow penciled guide line. When you are sure that it is in the correct position, press into place.

Repeat the whole process for the other eye and let the glue dry and set.

Once they have set, you can use an eyelash curler to tweek the ends or you can do the same using a mascara brush.

In the beginning, you may find that it takes some time for you to do this but once you have carried out this little job a few more times, you will notice that you will get quicker at it because you will know exactly where they need to be placed and you will have more confidence in yourself.

When you know how to apply false eyelashes properly, you will notice a complete transformation in the way you look and you can be happy in the knowledge that it won’t even cost you a fortune.
