As a ballroom dancer, you learn to apply false eyelashes from the time you're a child!

When you get your lashes, flex them a bunch so they aren't stiff. They're already sticky at the base, so, put the lashes on first without the glue to see how much you will have to trim off - they are always way bigger than your eyes.

After you've trimmed them, apply a layer of glue to the lashes with a toothpick - not too thin, but not super heavy. I wait about 20 seconds, then put the lashes on and slide them into place while the glue is still wet. I press the lashes down with another toothpick to make sure it sticks - especially the corners.

If you have a magnifying mirror on a stand, and you can turn the mirror so that it is facing up toward the ceiling, that is best because you can put your lashes on using both hands, and it's a better angle to see what you're doing and making sure you get proper placement. Keep practicing because it will get easier. I can slap a pair of lashes on in about 2 minutes.

Excellent advice. Thanks everybody.

I'll try applying again tomorrow (get up extra early). I'd practice tonight, but I'm drinking an adult beverage now (long day), so ... you know.

Figure if I adjusted quickly to inserting contact lenses, the false eyelashes will be a cinch.

I use falsies all the time.

They rock

They are easy to put on...there are several tutorials on youtube but in essence you glue the middle of it first THEN tuck the ends in.

I've only worn false lashes for photoshoots or runway. Do people who wear them daily reuse the same pair several times or are they single use items?

In my area they do the single ones for $25 to $50.
They usually stay on for 2 weeks.

As for using the strips everyday,I do, but after 3 days I have to throw them away.
Too much glue accumulates on them.

I'd love to have them but I don't think I could do it so I'd rather pay someone to just do it correctly for me...Maybe the MAC store??

make may do the strips but the semi perm you need to get them done by a LIC esthetician in most states.
