How to Wear False Lashes
Fake it ‘til You Make it
Have you ever looked at movie stars and wondered how they get those long, thick, luscious eyelashes? Well, I’ll let you in a little secret: They’re wearing false eyelashes. False eyelashes have been around for many years, and while they’re readily accessible, many women have not tried wearing them. At first impression, it can seem weird to attach false eyelashes to your eyes. But, with correct application, you can learn how to wear your lashes like an A-lister.
Before we get into it, I know what you’re thinking… “How embarrassing! I don’t want anyone to know that I’m wearing fake eyelashes!” Wearing false lashes is no longer taboo. False lashes are as typical as a designer purse. There’s no reason to feel bashful about adorning your gazers. Listen, we all know that your lips aren’t naturally fiery red, but that doesn’t take away from the beauty of the look! The same goes for your lashes. You will soon discover that no one cares that they aren’t your natural lashes, all they will care about is where you purchased them!
Choosing the Right False Eyelash Style
Picking out the best set of false eyelashes is like picking out the perfect pair of shoes. They have to look good, feel comfortable, and withstand the test of time. There are so many styles and densities to choose from that you can feel lost and confused. If you’re new to wearing false eyelashes or if you’re a lash veteran, Private Label Extensions is your one-stop-shop for wholesale eyelashes. I’ve put together a simple guide to help you choose your best lash look.
You need to consider your eye shape when purchasing false eyelashes. For smaller eyes, choose a false eyelash that mimic’s a sunburst. Lashes that extend in the middle are great for smaller eyes because they give the illusion that your lids are wider than they are in reality.
For larger eyes, choose a dramatic lash like the 3D Mink Lashes from PLE to compliment your open eye. 3D lashes have more mink fibers on the strip, so they appear to be thicker than regular lashes. The benefit of wearing 3D lashes is that you often don’t need to wear eyeliner. The majority of the lash’s density is at the base of the strip, so the false lash gives the illusion that you are wearing eyeliner.
PLE has a vast line of mink eyelashes that are sure to suit any style. If you’re not sure what type of eyelash to select, consider what role your lashes will play in your style story. If your eyes are not the main focal point of your look, then choose a subtle lash like the Toronto lash from PLE’s 3D Mink Thinline lash collection. If you want to make a statement with your eyes, then check out PLE 3D Faux Volume line featuring lashes like the Dandelion or Lotus.
Another element to consider while you’re choosing the style of your false eyelashes is how much experience you’ve had with them. When applied with accuracy, you will barely notice that your false lashes are there. However, life happens, and too much straight flossin’ on the dancefloor will leave your lashes looser than usual. If you don’t have much experience with false eyelashes, choose a less thick eyelash so that they’re easier to handle in a pinch. Once you’ve selected your favorite style, it’s best to grab a few pairs so that you have backups in case of an emergency. PLE lets you place an order in quantities of one, five, or ten at a time. Can you say, wholesale eyelash heaven?
Lash Like a Pro
So now that you’ve picked out your favorite false eyelashes, it’s time to apply them with perfection. Purchasing PLE Mink lashes means that you have the best lashes on the market in your possession. Half the battle is behind you. Now you will need to know how to put on your lashes so that they look flawless.
Step 1: Measure the lash strip to your eye. If any parts extend beyond your natural lash line, you’ll need to snip away the excess of the lash carefully.
Tip: Use the ends of your scissors and cut a blunt line.
Step 2: Apply a thin layer of lash glue to the strip. Wait a few seconds for the glue to become tacky before applying.
Tip: It’s best not to use the lash while the glue is wet, tacky glue sets better on the eye and won’t disrupt your make-up.
Step 3: Place your false eyelashes directly on your lash line. Use your fingers or tweezers to squeeze your natural and false lashes together. Continue pressing until your lashes feel tight and secure on your eyelids.
Tip: There should not be a gap between your eyelashes and your false lashes. If there is a gap, gently remove your strip lash and start over.
Step 4: Use a clean mascara wand to blend your natural lashes into your false eyelashes.
Lash with Care
Now that your lashes are applied make sure that you remove them carefully. You don’t want to damage your natural lashes by carelessly ripping them off. Put an oil-free makeup remover on a cotton swab and massage it over your lash line. Once the false lash is loose, gently remove it and use the cotton swab to clean the strip. Once your lash strip is clean, store your false lashes back in their container for your next use.
