With a good adhesive comes two responsibilities; one is which adhesive to use; the other is how to use it.

Generally there are white and black adhesive which are readily available in the market. White adhesive dries up quicker and due to light coloration it isn’t tricky in application, where as the black adhesive is darker and can be tough as there is no margin of error but it is stronger in application. Some of the lashes also come with applied adhesive.

Let’s not lose hope, there are some additional tips and tricks that will also help to achieve the glamorous eyes with fake eye lashes.

Tip # 1:

Always search and buy eye lashes with invisible strip, not only they help in neat application but they also weigh lighter on the eyes and are much comfortable to wear.

Tip # 2:

Wear mascara only if you don’t wish to re-wear the lashes, mascara makes the blending perfect but it is never suggested to wear mascara if you want to apply them again. To get the best results always try to think of the final look you want to achieve and then buy accordingly, so it reduces the chance to apply mascara.

Tip # 3:

For perfect results, never, I repeat, NEVER ever trim the lashes from the inner corner, always start trimming the eye lashes from the outer corner and then gradually moving towards the inner corner.

Tip # 4:

Along with applying false lashes it is also very important to know how to remove them too. Directly removing them or peeling them can cause huge damage to the eyes and the real lashes. Use makeup remover for this purpose, take a cotton swab and put some makeup remover on it, now let this cotton swab rest against your eye for some time so the eye lashes loosen up. Now you can gently remove them.

False eye lashes can work wonders only if one learns how to do so!
