False Eyelashes for Natural Lashes

False eyelashes make you look more alive. They add visual interest to your makeup routine and create an instant impact on anyone who sees them. Even if you’re not wearing false eyelashes, there’s a chance that you’ve heard someone rave about the experience. So whether it’s for birthdays, office parties, or everyday life, adding a falsie is an easy way to enhance your appearance and open up many opportunities for yourself.

The natural look has been trending recently in the beauty industry thanks to celebrities like Vogue Williams spreading the word about how women should be rocking their natural beauty and embracing it with pride instead of changing their looks or using cosmetic products to change their features.

I’m putting together this post to give you some tips and tricks to creating a natural look with your eyelashes and be a catalyst to get you started.


Understand Your Lashes For The Best Results

You’ve probably seen false eyelashes on other people and thought they looked glamorous. But did you know that this type of falsies isn’t the best for makeup beginners? They’re made from very long, stiff, synthetic fibers. This means that the hairs are longer, appearing much thicker than natural lashes do. It’s not easy to apply false eyelashes effectively at first; therefore, starting with baby steps is often recommended by experienced makeup artists.

Many types of falsies are available in the market, but some are more natural than others. That being said, if you want to use a more natural look with your falsies, these three tips will help you achieve that:

  • Use mascara before applying your falsies for better definition and layer with your eye makeup. This will prevent clumps and ensure that both your lashes and falsies stay attached all day long.
  • Apply foundation before applying falsies–it helps smooth out any bumps from adding false lashes and prevent the falsies from looking unnatural.
  • Mascara can be used in between false lashes to seal them in place. The best trick is to apply one coat of mascara and leave it alone–they are better sealed this way!

Which type of falsies suits your eyes best?

The shape of her eyes typically dictates a woman’s preference for false lashes. There are so many different types of falsies to choose from, and which type of falsies suit your eyes best?

  • Natural-looking false lashes:

If you have naturally full eyelashes, you can look for slightly heavier ones than your natural lashes. In this case, you will find that the density is in the 3-3.5 grammes per pair range.

  • Longer lash falsies:

For those with long eyelashes, it is better to choose falsies with longer and thinner endings to be more similar to your full eyelashes. The lighter density of these falsies (1-1.6 grammes per pair) is great for creating the illusion of more volume.

  • Lightweight or ultra-lightweight false lashes:

If your natural lashes are sparse, it is better to choose single false lashes that weigh 0.8-1.2 grams per pair because they will blend in perfectly with your natural ones without making them look too dense and fake looking.

  • Medium-density false lashes:

If you have medium-density natural eyelashes, falsies with medium density would be perfect for you. They weigh about 2-3 grammes per pair and are great for creating fuller-looking eyelashes without going overboard with the dramatic effect of heavier falsies.

  • Falsies with a tapered end:

For those that want longer and thicker-looking lashes all around, false lashes with a tapered end are the best choice if you don’t want to look like a doll! These falsies weigh up to 3.5 grammes per pair and are great for adding volume to your eyelashes.

Keep yourself from damaging your lashes with these safety guidelines.

  • Know how to properly take care of your lashes- Always clean them well with a mascara remover or baby shampoo.
  • Don’t hold tweezers too close to the roots of your lashes- This will cause unnecessary pulling, and you could even accidentally pull out some of your real eyelashes when plucking those pesky ones at the roots.
  • Avoid heating up or placing them near stovetops, windowsills, in front of fans, and other heat sources. Heat tends to dry out your false eyelashes, making them stiff and brittle.
  • If the false eyelashes you opted for come in a box, make sure to place them in an area away from sun or heat and place a cloth over it to cover it up.
  • If you don’t wear falsies for long periods, keep them in their original box or opt for another container with air holes. This will allow the falsies to stay fresh, and you can always use them whenever you want.
  • If you have particularly thin lashes, apply a coat of mascara first before applying your false eyelashes, so they blend in a lot better and appear thicker than usual.
  • Make sure to wear mascara before putting on falsies.

How To Apply False Eyelashes

Applying false eyelashes requires more patience and skill than you may be used to with regular mascara. This type of lashes requires that the application process be done in several steps. You want to apply the product in light layers, so it’s important to make sure that you’re applying enough, but not too much.

  • Step 1: Grasp your natural eyelash between your fingers and extend them, pointing the tips at each other. Don’t let them touch each other so that they don’t get stuck together later.
  • Step 2: With the same hand, grab a strip of tape or lashes and place it in between your eyelids above your natural eyelashes.
  • Step 3: Press the tape down onto your natural eyelashes and spread the ends apart from each other to open the gap in between the two eyelashes.
  • Step 4: Repeat on the other eye.

Take The False Lashes Off Carefully

You want to take your time when removing your false lashes at night. You don’t want to rip them off or use a harsher remover that could pull on your natural eyelashes and damage them. The best way to do it is with a few cotton balls dipped in an oil-free makeup remover solution or baby oil.
