How To: Individual Eyelash Tutorial

eyelashes

What You Will Need:
Tweezers
LashTite Lash Adhesive by Ardell
Short Eyelashes
Clean Lashes

1. Clean your lashes so that they are free of all makeup residue and oil

2. Take the twezers and gently pull one lash off of the package at a time, being sure not to unravel the lash. (This can be done most easily by pulling directly from the start of the lash rather than the tip)

3. Now that you have the lash, dip the small ball at the end of the lash into a small dab of glue. I like to use black glue, because I have black lashes, but for those with blonde or light brown lashes, use the clear glue for a more natural look.

4. Take the individual lash which has just been dipped into glue and place it on the bottom of the upper lid. This can be done most easily by using your index finger to push the eyelid up as the lash is inserted beneath the natural lashes. (Inserting the artificial lash beneath the real ones will make this look more natural.

5. Repeat steps 2-4 for each eye, starting from the outer corner of the top eyelid and ending approximately one centimeter from the inner corner of the eyelid.

6. Wait 3 minutes and then use the flat portion of the opposite side of the tweezers to push down your natural lashes into the crevices of the articicial lashes, blending them to be most natural.

7. Voila! You now have natural-looking artificial lashes which can last up to 3 weeks long.

Note: I recommend keeping individual lashes only for a maximum of 3 weeks. Like hair on the head, lashes do shed, and it would be in your best interest to remove the lashes with a remover, rather then have them fall out, or pull them out because of excess stress and discomfort. Be extremely careful when removing the lashes with the remover solution. Tune in for a how to: remove individual lashes tutorial soon!
