The story of false eyelashes is pretty simple- they can give any makeup look a little more oomph, but they are tricky to apply on yourself. I do makeup professionally and still struggle to put them on myself. Something about the whole thing of your eye needing to be closed, but you have to look in the mirror to see what you are doing and then you are looking at it backwards and then before you know it you have a falsie on your forehead. As with most things, practice makes perfect, but unless you are a Kardashian, you probably aren’t wearing false eyelashes everyday. Since the struggle is real, I made a little video to give you some simple steps to make apply individual lashes easier. I personally like the look of individual lashes to strips, unless I’m going super glam. It’s just a more natural look. More details and links below the video.

I always use Duo glue because it holds the best. Find it here.
When using individual lashes, I fill in most of my lash with medium length lashes and then use small length on the inner corner.
I like to put a dime size amount of glue on my lash case or a piece of tissue and use a Q-tip to dab exactly the right amount on the end of the lash. It doesn’t take much. I also let it sit for a few seconds to get a little tacky on the end of the lash which makes it easier to apply.
Curling together after the lashes are applied helps make your lashes blend in with the false lashes and look more natural.
