Strip lashes are a fantastic way to elevate your eye makeup game, offering a touch of glamour and allure. However, achieving the perfect application requires a careful hand and some know-how. This guide will take you through the step-by-step process of correctly applying our strip lashes for a flawless and stunning result.
Before diving into the application process, ensure you have the necessary tools on hand. You will need the following:
Choose a pair of strip lashes that complements your desired look and opt for a high-quality, latex-free adhesive. We recommend Duo adhesive. If it's your first time using strip lashes using tweezers or a lash applicator will make it easier and insure precise placement. A well-lit mirror will help you see the details of the application.
Step One: Measure and Trim
Hold the strip lashes against your natural lash line to estimate the fit. If the lashes extend beyond the outer corner of your eye, trim the excess with small scissors. Always trim from the outer edge to maintain the desired shapeApply Lash Adhesive
Squeeze a small amount of lash adhesive onto the back of your hand or a clean surface. Using a tweezer or lash applicator, dip the strip lash band into the adhesive, ensuring an even and thin coat. Avoid applying too much adhesive, as it can lead to a messy application.
Step Two: Wait for Adhesive to Get Tacky
Allow the adhesive to become slightly tacky before applying the strip lashes. This usually takes about 20-30 seconds. Tacky adhesive grips better, making the lashes easier to position and ensuring a more secure bond.
Step 3: Placement
Looking down into a mirror, use the tweezers or lash applicator to carefully place the strip lashes along your natural lash line. Start by attaching the center of the strip lash band to the center of your lash line. Once centered, press down the inner and outer corners. Adjust the position as needed for a seamless fit.
Step 4: Press and Secure
After placing the strip lashes, use the back of the tweezers or your fingertips to press down gently along the entire lash band. This ensures a secure bond and helps the strip lashes blend seamlessly with your natural lashes.
Step 5: Blend Natural and False Lashes
To achieve a cohesive look, blend your natural lashes with the strip lashes. You're able to achieve this by using either a clean mascara wand and gently brushing through both your lashes and the strip lashes to blend them. Some may opt for using mascara on their natural lashes to achieve the seamlessly blended look. Our lashes should not require mascara, we recommend keeping them clean to get the most from your lashes.
Putting on strip lashes takes practice, but with patience and attention to detail, you will perfect the art in no time! Whether it’s for a special occasion or to add a touch of glam to your everyday routine by trying our strip lashes.
