How To Apply False Lashes


September 21, 2012
Today I have a fun tutorial for you, PLUS a NEW giveaway, but first it's time to announce the lucky winner of the Jose Eber curling wand!  Congrats to:

MEREDITH MORGAN!
Please email me within 48 hours to claim your prize. 

And now to this week's tutorial and giveaway! 

Every girl should know how to apply false eyelashes, and the individual lashes are A LOT easier to apply, not to mention a lot more comfortable.
Learn how, then scroll down for details on this weeks giveaway.

1.  Start by applying your mascara as you normally would.
2.  Place a dot of eyelash glue on the back of your hand and wait for it to get tacky (about 1 minute).

3.  Use a pair of tweezers to gently pick up one of the eyelash clusters.
4.  Dip the very end of the eyelash cluster into the glue.

5.  Using a mirror, look straight forward and place the eyelash cluster at the base of your lashes.  If it helps, tilt your head up a little so you can see the base of your eyelash better. 
6.  The eyelash should go right to the base of your lashes, not on your eyelid. 

7.  Keep applying the lashes until you have filled in all of the holes.  I like to do longer ones on the outer corners for a winged look.
8.  Look at the difference!

 9.  Repeat on the opposite side.
10.  Finish with a light coat of mascara.



What I used:


EYELASH KIT GIVEAWAY
One winner will win their own false eyelashes kit, including:
*Three containers of individual false lashes (short, medium and long)
*Eyelash glue

  10. Your site has been a great inspiration for a ballroom dancer like me. For competitions I have only used the full false lash types, so this individual eyelash technique will be a great help. So hopefully I will have a chance at winning this!
