To apply false lashes correctly, first decide the length of the eyelashes you will need. You may need to trim the lashes if you need shorter lashes. Make sure the eyelids have no makeup on them yet, and then use an eyelash curler to prep the eyelashes. If applying a full set, apply a thin coat of glue along the base of the eyelashes using a toothpick or similar item. Finally, wait for the glue to dry. It's easier to apply a full set of fake lashes rather than individual lashes, but neither is too difficult. The process of applying fake eyelashes may take around 10 minutes.
