False eyelashes are a fun, simple way to mix up your normal style and bring more attention to your eyes. Though it may take you a couple tries to get down, applying false eyelashes is incredibly easy and should only take a few minutes once you get the hang of it.
To apply false eyelashes, start by covering the back of an eyelash strip with a layer of lash glue. Then, place the strip on top of your natural lash line and let the glue dry for about 1 minute. You do not need to hold the lash down while it dries, but avoid blinking to keep the lash from falling off. Once it’s dry, apply mascara to your lashes and liquid eyeliner to your upper eyelids to make your eyelashes look more natural.

Size the lashes. Before gluing the lashes on, you will need to make sure they are not too wide for your eye. Hold the lash strips up against your eyelid, and trim them down on the sides if necessary.
- If the lashes are too long for your personal taste, consider trimming the individual lashes down to achieve a more natural look. Lashes should be longer toward the outer corner of the eye.
Apply the lash glue to the outer seam of the eyelash strip with an applicator or small brush. Allow the glue to dry for a moment before applying it to your lashes.
- Alternatively, you can squeeze a thin line of lash glue onto the back of your non-dominant hand. Then, gently run the outer seam of the eyelash strip along it.
