HELP! I need some SERIOUS advice right now. Okay, so I have never been a pro at applying false lashes and I’m trying to master this. I’ve found some lashes are so much easier to put on than others and I am struggling.
I recently bought a twin pack of Ardell Black Wispies and they are so beautiful. They create such a full, but natural look that I have been trying so desperately to achieve. As much as I love eye makeup, I’m also not a master mind at that either, so I want to be able to wear false lashes without eyeliner or shadow, while avoiding the appearance that I am a total bullshit liar and sporting some false lashes. Ya know what I mean?
So, my problem is… the Ardell Black Wispies I bought have an extremely thin band and it has been so difficult for me to put them on! It’s driving me mad, because I would love to be able to quickly put some lashes on before work in the morning, but it’s taking me anywhere between 15-20 minutes to get them looking HALFWAY decent (insert huge eye roll and sigh).
I’ve tried EVERYTHING I can think of. I use Duo Brush On Striplash Adhesive in white/clear on the band and let it sit for 30-35 seconds before placing it on my lid. I’ve tried using tweezers, lash applicator tools, and just my hands and I can never seem to get close enough to my natural lash line! WHAT GIVES?! I try placing the lash in the middle of my lid and then pushing down the sides, but the lashes get stuck all over the place and I have to take off and reapply the lash 5 times before I finally settle.
What tips do you have for a perfect false lash application? I am in desperate need of some guidance, unless one of you wants to come over every day and apply them for me. Please drop your most helpful tips in the comments!
