If you think false eyelashes went out of style along with bell bottoms and gold medallions, guess again -- false eyelashes are one of the simplest and most inexpensive ways to accentuate your eyes. Modern sets of false eyelashes are natural looking, easy to apply, and emphasize your eyes in ways that no amount of eye makeup can.
Choose a set of false eyelashes that matches the color of your natural lashes. Women with light colored hair should choose light brown, while darker haired women should opt for black or dark brown.
Curl your natural eyelashes with an eyelash curler. Measure your set of false eyelashes against your own eyelashes. If the false lashes are significantly longer than your natural lashes, use eyebrow scissors to trim them to the appropriate length.
Apply all of your makeup, including your eye makeup. Use a medium to thick line of eyeliner and a heavy layer of mascara. Waiting until after the false eyelashes are in place to apply eyeshadow can disturb the positioning of the eyelashes.
Open the false eyelash adhesive, squeeze a small amount on a piece of paper and use a toothpick to apply adhesive to both false eyelashes. Allow the glue to sit, undisturbed, on the lashes for about 60 seconds.
Press the false eyelashes firmly as closely as possible to your natural lash line, beginning with the inside corner of your eye and working to the outer edge. You can press the lashes into place with your fingers or with a pair of tweezers.
Apply additional eyeliner above the false eyelash line and blend the false eyelashes with your natural lashes with an additional layer of mascara.
