How to Apply False Lashes

A five-step tutorial on how to properly apply false lashes with help from makeup artist Stephanie Neiheisel.

  1. Apply eye primer (MAC “Painterly” pictured) and gel liner (MAC “Blacktrack” pictured) along lash line.
  2. Curl lashes and apply mascara.
  3. Apply a soft even line of glue along false lash band. Do not apply directly to your eyelid!
  4. Gently wave the lash back and forth for about 15 seconds to let air hit the glue line allowing it to become tacky.
  5. Place outer corner along lash line and press inward.
