When to apply fake lashes?

Hello, beauty lovers! Today we're focusing on a crucial aspect of false lash application – timing. Knowing when to apply your false lashes in your makeup routine can make a significant difference in the ease of application and the overall look. Whether you're prepping for a day at the office or gearing up for a glamorous night out, let’s explore the best time to apply those stunning falsies for a flawless finish.

1. After Eye Makeup, Before Face Makeup:

The golden rule for applying false lashes is to do it after your eye makeup but before your face makeup. Here's why:

  • Eye Makeup First: Complete your eyeshadow and eyeliner before applying lashes. This approach prevents shadow fallout or eyeliner smudging on your pristine lashes.
  • Face Makeup After: Applying your foundation, concealer, and powder after lash application helps avoid getting makeup on the lashes. It also allows you to clean up any fallout from eye makeup without disturbing your lashes.

2. Consider the Eyeliner Trick:

If you're using eyeliner (especially liquid), applying it before your false lashes can help. The eyeliner can act as a guide for where to place the lashes and help blend the lash band into your makeup look.

3. Curling Your Natural Lashes:

It’s best to curl your natural lashes before applying falsies. This helps your natural lashes blend seamlessly with the false ones, creating a more unified and natural appearance.

4. Mascara Application:

You have two options with mascara:

  • Before: Applying a light coat of mascara to your natural lashes before putting on false lashes can provide a more stable base for the falsies to sit on.
  • After: Alternatively, a light coat of mascara after applying false lashes can help blend the natural and false lashes together. Be gentle to avoid damaging the falsies.

5. Final Touches:

Once your false lashes are securely in place, you can proceed with the rest of your face makeup. Be careful around the eye area to maintain the integrity of your lashes.

6. Special Occasions:

For special events or occasions where you want your makeup to last longer, consider using a setting spray at the end of your makeup routine. Close your eyes and lightly mist your face to set your makeup, being cautious to not soak your lashes.
