False eyelashes can be a great way to add a dramatic look to your makeup, but they don't always last as long as you'd like. To make sure your false eyelashes stay in place all day, there are a few tips and tricks you should follow. First, ask your technician to give you clear eyelash extensions that fit the natural shape of your eyelashes. Avoid heat, water, and steam for the first 2-3 days after application.
It's also important to avoid using waterproof mascara or any mascara at all, if possible. When it comes to glues, patience is key. Apply a thin, even layer of glue to the false eyelashes and wait for it to dry before applying them to the lash line. This will help them stay in place for longer.
Additionally, it's important to clean your eyelashes after every few uses. Soak them gently in warm water and clean them with eye makeup remover and a cotton swab. Then, be sure to rinse them thoroughly and comb them gently with an eyelash comb before patting them dry and storing them in their tray. Another mistake people make when applying fake adhesives is not waiting for the glue to dry. When we rush to put them on, this just means that they're more likely to fall off in the middle of the day.
Instead, wait 10-20 seconds for the glue to become sticky before applying your eyelashes. Not all false eyelashes fit directly from the package; some may be too long or too wide for your eyelashes, so you'll have to measure and cut them to size. Many tutorials teach us that mascara is the best way to make your false eyelashes look real, but this isn't necessary as false eyelashes are already long and dark enough. It's also important not to use tweezers when removing your eyelashes; instead, use your fingertips gently to keep your lash hairs from wrinkling. Always make sure to remove your false eyelashes at the end of the day and store them in their original packaging.
When applying false eyelashes, it's important to take your time and be gentle with them. If your hands are shaking, grab the entire false eyelash instead of just the tips. When it comes time for removal, use makeup remover to gently remove glue from eyelashes before taking them off. Finally, wearing false eyelashes without a mask doesn't mean you should completely neglect your eyes at the end of the night. Taking care of your false eyelashes will help them last longer and look more realistic.
