As usual, I will provide the same answer again and over again - PRACTICE!!!
That's the only trick to get it done perfectly. You have to try and practice. Of course, don't wear falsie outside of the house (or your room) for the first time. You need some times to get used to it, to understand it and also to figure out the tricks to rock them.
For beginner, it's never to late to make yourself look perfect. Just follow the steps below are be pretty :)
Get yourself a soft and natural eyelashes. I know you want or love dramatic falsie but you don't want to frighten your friends or families for the first time. Just get a natural one for practice purpose.
I'm using Revlon falsie (91003 Flirty) and Maybeline adhesive for this demo.
Why Maybeline's adhesive but not Revlon?
There are two types of adhesive: 1) Black (which is the one that come with Revlon falsie, and 2) Transparent (the Maybeline one). Personally, I prefer transparent adhesive, it's easier to wipe off when I make a mistake. It's up to you though, both are the same.
Don't glue them first! Always measure the length of the falsie. If it is too long, trim it; if it is too short, sorry, you bought a wrong one :( Don't toss it, you can use it for lower lashes (wait for next tutorial, maybe :p)
Gently measure it closer to your eyelash line.
Now glue them, one at a time.
Experts will suggest you to use a tweezer while applying glue on falsie. But I think it's ok to use you fingers :) It works better for me.
Evenly apply the glue and wait for 15-20 seconds. Use Q-tip or cotton bud to wipe off the extra glue, not fingers. Don't wait for too long also, the glue will dry out. As soon as you see the glue starts turning into transparent color, that's the perfect time!
Step 4 (the hardest part!!!)
Now glue the falsie as close as possible to your eyelash line. You have to be patient. It's ok to mess things up for the first time but don't give up. Keep trying, repeat the previous steps if necessary. Then, let it dry. You can apply black eyeliner to cover or hide the falsie's glue.
Now, I'm going to show you the magic. This will motivate you to keep trying and keep trying until you do it right!
BEFORE. Smile and angle do play a magic role too. I have to pick the ugliest picture in order to display the dramatic effect. Just bear with me, k?
Well, I look like a sick person. Make up is alright, but just not very attractive. I really don't wanna show this picture!!! I'm super Ah Lian in this picture @.@
But after applying fake eyelashes...
AFTER. Told you, I really can't live without falsie :'(
It looks so pretty from all different angles.
See... If I can do it, you can do it too.
Good Luck, everyone.
P/S: Let me know how it turns out on you. Keep me posted ya :)
P/P/S: Sorry, my bad. I should clarify it. Remember to curl and mascara after applying falsie. This will make the falsie looks more natural and more like your original lashes.
P/P/P/P/S: How to remove falsie?
Thanks for asking, gals. You will need an eye and lips makeup remover, cotton pad and Q-tips. I should do another posting to show you guys the right way of doing it. Just try to be really gentle while removing your falsie now! I'll be back with more tutorial next time :)
