Have you ever had trouble applying false lashes? Starting off, application can be so tricky and frustrating – trust me ladies, I know! It takes time and practice, just like anything else. I have simplified it all for you with the best tips and tricks for a seamless application.
My first encounter with false lashes was in high school. I was preparing for one of the most magical nights of my life, my Senior Prom. Wearing a beautiful bronze makeup look with peachy lips, all I needed was a set of lashes to complete the look for that red carpet effect.
Looking down at the beautiful set of false lashes I was about to apply, I thought to myself… “Wow. These babies are going to make me look “Prom Ready!” Little did I know, the joke was on me. I found myself lost without instructions or the proper application tools! Boy, was it a mess..but you got to start somewhere right?!
Looking back on photos from that memorable night, there were a number of things wrong with the way I applied my lashes. From measuring to fitting, it was quite a beautiful disaster.
My 4 easy-to-follow steps will ensure that this application process is swift and smooth! Follow along for the ultimate guide to false lash application perfection.
*Style of lashes used: Happily Ever After
Step 1: Remove Icona Lashes
Carefully remove your Icona Lashes with a pair of tweezers from the lash tray. Handle them from the lash strip. You may also use your fingers to gently remove your Icona Lashes. Whichever method you are most comfortable with.
Step 2: Lash Fitting
Place the lash strip across your natural lash line. With a pair of small scissors, carefully cut off any excess that goes beyond your natural lash line.
Pro Tip: If the lash strip is longer than your natural lash line, the lashes will not sit properly on your eyelid and they will look off balanced. So snip, snip!
Step 3: Glue On
Apply glue evenly along the lash strip with a toothpick. Wait 20-30 seconds for glue to get tacky. Waiting is a MAJOR key for better, cleaner, and easier application.
Pro Tip: Lash glue that comes with a brush applicator works just as well. It ensures a smooth, even application. Again, whichever method you are most comfortable with.
Step 4: Lash On
Gently place the lash strip on the center base of your natural lash line, then continue to the inner and outer base of your natural lash line. Use your fingers to slightly press along your Icona Lashes lash line to secure the lash strip.
Pro Tip: When placing your false lashes on, position the false lashes coming down on to your lash line for a precision application.
I'm positive that these 4 steps will simplify your false lash application process and ensure that your false lashes are always on point! Whether you are going out for brunch with your gals or a night out on the town, these quick steps will have your lashes ready for any occasion! The ultimate goal is for you to feel fabulous yet comfortable while wearing your beautiful Icona Lashes.
