False lashes are one of the quickest ways to add drama to your makeup look. Whether you want added length, volume or all of the above, false eyelashes can help and they are one of our must-haves for special occasions. We’re sharing our tips for how to apply those falsies perfectly, everytime.
Choosing the Right Eyelashes
Before we even get to the application, the key to gorgeous fluttery lashes is choosing the right lashes for you. There are so many options out there for false lashes now, meaning you’re guaranteed to find the perfect lash for your ideal look.
There are 3 main types of false eyelashes available.
- Individual lashes– the most customisable, individual lashes, they tend to come as little groups of 2 or 3 lashes. You can choose exactly how much definition and what shape you want.
- Strip Lashes – these are the classic lashes that come all attached to one simple strip to apply. They now come in all sorts of shapes and textures.
- Demi or Half Lashes – these are smaller versions of strip lashes, that come either halfway or 3/4 of the way along the lash line, perfect for accentuating the outer corners.
