How to Apply False Lashes ft. Born Pretty Store

Hello pretty people :)

This week's post is about how to apply false lashes, per request! 
As you know I apply false lashes basically every day. Practice is key to master this technique ;) 
This blog features products that were sent to me from Born Pretty Store
I have a COUPON CODE below so keep reading! 
If you're looking for a good pair of lashes I recommend Blinking Beaute, Velour, Ardell, or Salon Perfect. For beginners, Ardell or Salon Perfect (at Target, WalMart, or Ulta) lashes might be easier for you because they have a smaller lash band. It is harder to hide and keep in place a thick lash band. 
I start off with my makeup all done. I also do my liner first. I recommend applying eyeliner when using false lashes especially if you are just starting because the liner helps hide the lash band. 

I also want to mention that my eye makeup was inspired by Ssssamanthaa from Batalash and her Nudy Plum Halo Eye :)

Get out yo lashes 
TRIM your lashes if necessary.. Always always trim them from the outer corner if necessary. If you trim from the inner corner of the lash they won't look right! 
These are Blinking Beaute Lashes in the style No. 1 
Apply a SMALL amount of lash glue to the strip
****The key here is to let your lash glue dry for a bit before applying.. I set mine down and let them dry to a yellowish color. But, if you let them dry too long you will have to pull off the glue and start over.. Try to find the happy medium!

Apply yo lashes using eyelash nippers! 

I always focus on the center of the lash first, pressing it as close to your natural lashes as possible. 
Then using your fingers or regular tweezers, apply the inner and outer corners of the lashes. 
You may have to hold them in place for a few seconds to really get them to stick. 

Also using your tweezers, I like to press my natural lashes to the false lashes.
 *If you notice the inner or outer corner of your lashes sticking to your bottom lashes, this happens to me all the time. Gently keep pulling them apart from the bottom lashes using tweezers until glue completely dries, then they shouldn't do that anymore!

Apply eyeliner onto the lash band to hide it
I am using the Maybelline EyeStudio Gel Eye Liner in Blackest Black
Apply mascara to the lower lashes
Apply mascara to top lashes (if necessary), trying not to get any on the false lashes because that can ruin them! 

Now enjoy your lashes :)) Be sure to stick your lash glue into your purse to carry with you in case you have a lash corner pop off..  It happens!
