Grandma knows best when it comes to the proper application of falsies. Long before eyelash extensions became the new vogue, vintage ladies were slapping strips on with perfection, practically in their sleep. False eyelashes are back in style so it just makes sense to go right back to the ladies of the glam area to find out what makes them stick. Your grandma was wearing false lashes and pointed nails, long before you. And she has an emery board in her purse. (So this woman means business.)

How to Apply False Eyelashes Like a Pro
There’s nothing to fear but fear itself. Remember that.
Find the right style
There are a variety of different lash styles you can choose from. Some are a strip, some are individual, and you can even buy accent lashes that cover half of the outer lash. Take a good look at the shape of your eyes before you begin shopping for false lashes and consider how many lashes you want and their length. You can opt for natural or drastic results. Some more suitable for different occasions.
Trim as needed
If you strip lashes are too wide you’ll need to cut them down to size. Place them across your lid prior to gluing and see where they need to be trimmed. In most cases, you’ll probably always need to snip a few lashes from the exterior end.
Curl lashes and add mascara
Curl your eyelashes prior to the lash application and apply mascara as well. Even though you’ll be using falsies, light colored lashes will stick out like a sore thumb against the falsies. A black mascara applied to your own lashes first will blend the two.
Use a quality glue
Glue is everything. A Moore Beauty vintage beauty queen suggests the brand Duo, but you can read as many reviews as you’d like online and find a formula that works for you. Everyone’s lids are different and some people produce more oil, so you’ll find that experimenting with several brands will give you a better idea of what works and what doesn’t.
Pat and pinch them together
After you’ve applied your lashes you should press down starting from the outside of your eye moving inwards, and gently tap the lashes into place, also squeezing and pinching both your lashes and the falsies together as you go. After they’re on, presto! You can fidget and push any areas down as needed for correction.
Applying false eyelashes takes practice. But practice makes it perfect. If you’re ready to ditch the glue and leave the maintenance to the professionals, contact Moore Beauty and book an eyelash extension service. Either way, don’t ignore the most beautiful feature on your face. The eyes are the windows to everything.
