For this how to, I decided to use the Ardell Double Up Lashes in # 206. I got them for $4.99 at CVS. I think it's fitting to mention that this week August 19th CVS is having a sale on ALL of their lashes buy 1 get 1 50% off!!
A big thing when applying lashes is finding the right glue for you! If the lashes you buy come in a kit with their own glue that doesn't mean that you have to use it. I know that alot of makeup artist's swear by the duo glue, I'm not one of them. I mean it's a good alternative if I'm out of my favorite. I just don't care for the smell or feel of it. This is the glue that I am OBSESSED with! I usually buy it at Walmart for $3.96, but they do sell it at some Walgreen's and CVS too.
They also have make a Revlon formula where the glue comes out black, I haven't tried that yet though. I really like the fact that this comes out a blueish color. It allows me to see where it is, and it dries clear anyway. I love love love that it has a brush applicator, it makes it so easy.
Now I'm pretty this goes without saying, but I will say it anyway. When you are applying lashes you want to get as close to your natural lashes as possible. Don't be afraid to get glue on them, it will come right off. Alot of people will hold it up to their eye first (without glue) to make sure it's the right length. If you are new at applying lashes I strongly recommend this. If they are too long you could trim them. If they are too short you can see where you need to place them so they don't look all wonky!
Next, you are going to apply the glue...
Now like I said you get as close as possible.
Don't be afraid to press down and move it to where it needs to be. I even sort of "pinch" it sometimes to get it closer. Like I said the glue will come off so you don't have to worry about it staying there forever. I know you might think well if I do that I will pull all of my natural lashes out! That has never happened to me and I have been doing this for a LONG time.
If you are worried that they will lift in the corners you could always dab a little extra glue on top of the corner and press down. (I usually do this) I also carry the glue in my purse!
That is it!!! Doesn't look hard right???
This was just an eye look I wasn't wearing any other face makeup.
What do you think? Do you like the end result? Is this something that you are going to try? Let me know if this helped you!
Here's a picture of me without them just so you can see the difference that they make.
