Think wearing false lashes every day is impossible? Think again. We understand that you might be hesitant to make this move. After all, we’ve been told for years that false lashes are only for special occasions – but now they don’t have to be! False lashes have really been revolutionized in recent years with amazing new materials and low-key styles that are comfortable enough and realistic enough for everyday use. Don’t believe us? Well here’s a quick guide that will teach you how you can wear everyday false lashes on a regular basis:
Find the Perfect Pair
Not every pair of false lashes are designed to be worn every day. The first thing that you need to think about when trying to find the perfect pair of everyday false lashes is the length and style that you’re looking for. We personally love an understated wispies look that will flawlessly blend into your natural lashes and have everyone asking you, “are they real?” Whether or not you reveal your secret is totally up to you! The second thing that you need to think about when trying to find the perfect pair of everyday false lashes is the material. When it comes to false lashes, there are three main materials that are used: synthetic plastic, faux-mink, and silk. Since you’re looking to wear your lashes every day, you will want to either go with faux-mink or silk since the synthetic plastic versions aren’t very durable or long-lasting.
Faux-mink and silk, on the other hand, can withstand several uses if cared for properly. So which material should you choose between the two? While it’s totally up to you and both are great options and have a similar price range, we prefer silk lashes for everyday use. This is because silk lashes are lighter and more comfortable than mink which can become heavy throughout the day. If you’re still unsure, maybe buy one of each and try them both out so you can choose your favorite.
Tailor Your Makeup Look
Now that you have found your perfect pair of false lashes that you can wear every day, it’s time to tailor your makeup look to fit your newest addition. We would be lying if we said that falsies don’t look best with a full-coverage makeup look. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to spend hours applying your makeup every day, but maybe use a few staple products like concealer, neutral eyeshadow, and lip gloss to help balance out your new lashes. However, if you are a total makeup fan, then don’t be afraid to go all out with full-coverage foundation, contouring, brows, and winged eyeliner. In any case, make sure to apply any mascara, eyeshadow, and eyeliner before moving on to your false lashes.
Apply Them Perfectly
Once you have your flawless makeup look complete, it’s time to apply your new lashes. This process might look a bit scary and intimidating for beginners but all it really takes it a bit of practice before you’ll nail it on your own. Everyone has their own favorite application technique and it might require some tutorial-watching on YouTube, but you will eventually find your groove and flawlessly apply your fake lashes as a part of your everyday makeup routine.
Here’s a quick guide on how to apply false lashes:
- Trim your brand new lashes before applying them based on your unique eye measurements.
- Depending on the lash band, you may need to flex it out before you apply so that it’s more curved and fits your eye shape.
- Make sure that your eye makeup is complete with eyeshadow and liner. Curl your real eyelashes and apply a bit of mascara to prep them for the falsies.
- Apply a thin line of glue along the band of the lashes and wait a few seconds for it to set.
- Place the adhesive line just above your natural lash line and press down all the way across the band – focusing on the ends.
- You may want to apply an extra coat of eyeliner on top of the band so that it blends with your eye makeup.
Take Care of Your False Lashes
If you really want to wear your lashes every day, you need to take care of them and make them last! The best silk lashes can be worn up to 15 times if you care for them properly. This involves gently removing them, cleaning off the extra adhesive, soaking them in soapy water if needed, and storing them in a safe, dry place until the next wear.
Whoever told you that you shouldn’t wear false lashes every day is just trying to kill your vibe. Don’t allow that kind of negativity in your life! If you want to rock fake eyelashes on a regular basis – do it and don’t look back!
