4 Easy Steps to Applying Fake Lashes That Don’t Look Fake
I have never been able to apply false lashes without having the lash bands lift up at the tear ducts and/or fall off before the end of the night. Beyond technique failure, fake eyelashes often looks heavy and synthetic. I hadn’t found a set that felt as chic as the Mink Lashes Manufacturer seen on the spring 2015 runways until last week, when NARS released their eight-piece Eye Lash collection.
Who better to teach me—and us—how to apply these lush new falsies, I thought, than Kurtis Dam-Mikkelsen? A classically-trained makeup artist, Mikkelsen is also one of the most exciting new drag personalities on the planet, appearing most recently on RuPaul’s Drag Race as Miss Fame. What I love about Mikkelsen’s approach to makeup is his preference for using as few tools as possible. For our first ever how-to with Mikkelsen aka Miss Fame, all that’s needed is mascara, a fresh set of lashes, and some Duo Eyelash Adhesive in black.
Step 1: Apply mascara
“Curl natural lashes and comb on a coat of mascara, creating a shelf to support the weight of your falsies.” And maybe try to look a little less dead in the eyes than I do?
Step 2: Cut to fit
“Cut the lash band right down the center to create a large individual lash. It’s easier to place than a full lash strip, which can become wonky and weird and asymmetrical.”
Step 3: Add adhesive
Trace each lash band, one by one, with a laser-thin line of Duo and wait a few moments for the adhesive to dry a bit.
Step 4: Put ’em on
Using your fingers, not tweezers, “place your extension on the outer corner first, hugging that lash line tight.” For an eye-lifting effect, Mikkelsen places the outer extension slightly above the natural lashline.
“When you’re placing the inner lash extension, avoid going close to the tear duct to give a little bit more width to the eye. If it’s too close, it makes your eyes feel like they’re narrower and even cross-eyed.”
How to apply false eyelashes to false eyelashes
STEP1. softly curl the Mink Lashes Manufacturer to make it softer
Hold the two ends of the eyelash with the finger belly and bend gently toward the middle. After a few bends, the connective stem of the Mink Lashes Manufacturer becomes softer and easier to paste.
STEP2. be thin and thin when you apply binders directly
Measure the length of your eyes before applying the adhesive. If it is too long, trim the Mink Lashes Manufacturer. The mascara is thin and carefully smeared with tweezers as you apply the adhesive. Pay attention to the fineness and evenness of the coating.
Blow gently to make the adhesive semi-dry
Full wet adhesive to the eyes is not easy to firm, half-dry state to paste Mink Lashes Manufacturer is the easiest to stick firmly.
Eyes look down and paste Mink Lashes Manufacturer.
After confirming the distance from the head to the tail, look down, point the Mink Lashes Manufacturer at the center edge of the upper eyelashes, and then stick the false eyelashes firmly by gently pressing them.
STEP5. pasting Mink Lashes Manufacturer with tweezers
Keep your eyes looking down, squeeze the Mink Lashes Manufacturer with tweezers for a few seconds, press the eyelashes at the end of the eye, and then open your eyes greatly, making the false eyelashes stronger with the help of the eyelids.
STEP6. use the finger position to make the final press
The temperature of the fingers in the place where the wool is pasted can promote the adhesive to become more comfortable.
STEP7. using electrothermal eyelash clips to make eyelashes more curly
Use the electric eyelash clip to push the eyelash up from the root. When necessary, press the Mink Lashes Manufacturer with the index finger of the other hand so that it neither pushes the Mink Lashes Manufacturer nor burns the upper eyelid.
STEP8. use the eyeliner pen to cover the pasting area
Use black eyeliner to draw the joint of Mink Lashes Manufacturer.
