Do You Apply False Lashes To Your Skin Or Lashes?

Do You Apply False Lashes To Your Skin Or Lashes?

When you’ve made the decision to use false lashes and are a first-time user of false lashes, you may not know if you should apply the lashes to your skin or your natural lashes.

No matter the kind of false lashes you are applying or the adhesive you are using, you should always apply false lashes to the skin of your eyelid. Applying them to your natural eyelashes can be detrimental to your eyelash health.

If you do stick false lashes to your natural lashes, you’ll run the risk of pulling off your natural eyelashes when you try to remove the false ones at the end of the night. You should try and avoid this as much as you can.


What Is The Trick To Applying False Lashes?

When applying false lashes, it is important to firstly choose lash glue that doesn’t irritate your skin. You should always patch test an adhesive for a minimum of a week before using it on your eyelids.

After finding an adhesive you are happy with, you’ll want to apply your chosen false lashes as close to your eyelashes as possible on your eyelids. The closer you can get the false lashes to your natural eyelashes, the better it will look overall.

Do be careful with your adhesive when applying the false lashes, especially when applying it so close to your natural lashes – being too liberal with the adhesive might cause a spillover onto your natural lashes or your eyes.

If this does happen, rinse your eyes for a minimum of five minutes. For very strong adhesives, you may need to rinse your eyes for up to fifteen minutes using lukewarm water.


Do I Put On Eyeliner Before Fake Lashes?

The order in which you apply eyeliner with respect to false lashes is a topic of debate. However, most beauty gurus recommend applying false lashes last. Applying makeup such as eyeliner and eye shadow first will allow the makeup to set before adding an adhesive layer and the lashes over the top.

Adding eyeshadow and eyeliner after false lashes can lead to the lashes themselves having a spillover. This can ruin the intended effect or style of the lashes.
