Faux Eyelashes are fun! But they can be tricky to apply if you have never tried to before. The following steps will walk you through perfect lash application, so you can glam it up whenever you feel like it.

Step 1: The Stuff

When I apply false lashes, I use the following products:
  • faux strip lashes
  • DUO lash adhesive
  • liquid eyeliner
  • powdered eye make-up
  • mascara
  • tweezers
  • small scissor
  • cotton swabs (not pictured)
Helpful Hint:

For this Instructable I used the DUO clear adhesive, so that you could see it better in the photographs. I recommend using their dark adhesive, it blends more effortlessly into your natural lash line.
Duo makes a glue that dries black. Makes mistakes harder to notice and of course blends in perfect with liner!
An idea-years ago my stepmom (who was a high-fashion model for Bergdorf Goodman in New York in the early 40's) told me to apply the eyelashes backwards switching right and left eyes! It does look better...at least on my eyes. And this technique is used where the right and left sides of the lashes do not have a large difference!
Thanks for posting! I wear falsies a lot but I always goof them up some how. I will try this method next time. I guess its all about being patient.
Is there a specific reason to use waterproof mascara instead of regular mascara? <br> <br>And whats the best way to remove the falsies? Is it possible to reuse false eyelashes or are they a one-time thing?
I have re-used strip lashes up to 3 times....after that they kind of start to fall apart. I use baby oil to remove the lashes, but there is also a specific kind of lash adhesive removal you could purchase. <br /> <br />I use waterproof mascara because if I stick anything near my eye, it instantly starts to tear up.
Lovely! I never had the courage to apply fake eyelashes, but they look great!
I can't stop laughing at my mascara face, that is a mess, ahahah
Very fancy :)
Could you add an addendum about not leaving small piles of eyelashes around in peoples houses. It's creepy...
