Having long, thick eyelashes can often make eyes appear smaller than they actually are. To avoid this, opt for shorter and more natural-looking lashes. Lashify is a great solution for both professionals and novices alike. Their lashes come in smaller clusters that are placed at the bottom of the lashes, rather than the top, for a more natural look.
You can layer several pieces, use them only in certain areas, or mix and match different styles. Plus, these lashes are some of the lightest on the market. Additionally, evening out skin tone by concealing the lower part of the eyes can make the lower lashes look better. When applying false eyelashes, it's important to measure the width of the lashes relative to your natural lash line and trim any excess length before applying them. The ideal false eyelashes to enhance your eyes are those that are longest just below the arch of your eyebrows.
To ensure a better fit, curl your natural lashes in a circular shape (as if you were wrapping them around a pencil). Look for longer eyelashes that curve up and away from your eyes to prevent mascara smudges on your brow bone. When applying mascara, focus more on the outer edges of your lashes. If you're using false eyelashes, cut them and place them around your eyes. For beginners, Joy suggests using medium or corner eyelashes instead of a full strip lash.
Start by curling your natural eyelashes with an eyelash curler so that their shape is similar to that of false eyelashes. Once the lashes are on, curl them with your real ones and apply a quick coat of mascara (don't put mascara on your real lashes until after you've applied the false ones). Finally, apply eyeliner first and then the eyelashes before retouching the liner so that you can't see the lash band. To find the best false eyelashes for your eye shape, look for ones with a sturdy strap that won't weigh down your lashes. A volumizing design will instantly open up hooded eyes.
Make sure to choose false eyelashes with a similar curvature to your natural lashes so that there are no gaps between them. Let the glue dry slightly so it becomes slightly sticky; this will help both false and natural lashes adhere perfectly without slipping or moving. To check the length of false eyelashes, hold them up to your lash line starting from the inner corner.
