How to apply false eyelashes: a step-by-step guide

Applying false eyelashes can be intimidating, especially for beginners. But fear not, because Mimi Makeup is here to help you master the art of applying false eyelashes like a pro. In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the entire process, from choosing the right pair of lashes to properly removing them at the end of the night. So, let's get started!

Choosing the Perfect False Eyelashes

Before you can apply your false eyelashes, you need to find the perfect pair. Mimi Makeup offers a wide range of high-quality, cruelty-free eyelashes that cater to various styles and preferences. Whether you're looking for a natural, everyday look or dramatic, voluminous lashes for a special event, we've got you covered.

When choosing your false eyelashes, consider the following factors:

  1. Length: The length of the lashes should complement your natural lashes and eye shape. If you have naturally short lashes, opt for a more natural length that will blend seamlessly with your own. If you're looking to make a statement, go for longer, more dramatic lashes.

  2. Volume: The volume of the lashes refers to the thickness and fullness. For a natural look, choose lashes with a lower volume that closely mimics your natural lashes. For a more dramatic effect, opt for a higher volume to create a bold, eye-catching appearance.

Essential Tools for Applying False Eyelashes

To apply your false eyelashes with ease, make sure you have the following tools at hand:

  1. Eyelash glue
  2. Tweezers or an eyelash applicator
  3. Eyelash curler
  4. Mascara
  5. Scissors (optional, for trimming the lashes)

Step-by-Step Guide to Applying False Eyelashes

Now that you've chosen your perfect pair of false eyelashes and gathered your tools, it's time to apply them. Follow these steps for flawless application every time:

Step 1: Curl Your Natural Lashes

Curling your natural lashes will help them blend seamlessly with the false eyelashes. Use an eyelash curler to gently curl your lashes, taking care not to tug or pull.

Step 2: Trim the Lashes (if necessary)

Hold the false eyelash strip up to your eye to measure the length. If it's too long, trim the outer edge with a pair of small scissors. Always trim from the outer corner to maintain the natural shape of the lash.

Step 3: Apply Eyelash Glue

Apply a thin line of eyelash glue along the lash band. Use a toothpick or the back of a tweezer for precision. Allow the glue to become tacky for about 30 seconds before proceeding.

Step 4: Position the Lashes

Using tweezers or an eyelash applicator, gently place the false eyelash as close to your natural lash line as possible. Start at the inner corner of your eye, and work your way outward, pressing the lash band down to secure it in place.

Step 5: Blend Your Lashes

Once the glue has dried, gently pinch your natural and false lashes together to blend them. Apply a coat of mascara to further blend the lashes and add volume.

Removing Your False Eyelashes

To remove your false eyelashes, gently peel them off from the outer corner, working inwards. Clean the lash band with a cotton swab dipped in makeup remover to remove any glue residue, and store them in their original packaging for future use.


Applying false eyelashes doesn't have to be a daunting task. With practice, patience, and the right tools, you'll be able to achieve a stunning, eye-catching look in no time.
