Listen, every girl who has a love for false eyelashes knows how difficult applying them can be. Hello gluey, sticky mess, and praying you apply your lashes correct once you've gone through the entire application process. We've been there and done that. Yet, despite the challenge of putting falsies on each time, fake eyelash lovers can’t imagine not wearing them. Let’s face it: faux eyelashes complete your style and take your makeup look to the next level.
If you're as obsessed with fake eyelashesas we MoxieLash babes are (that's hard to compete with...we get it), then you know that any hack to applying lashes more easily is like drinking a glass of fresh water when it's triple digits outside. Anything to make the lash application process easier is an absolute win for any beauty buff. So, we've put together our top 3 eyelash application hacks that will help you apply your lashes like an actual professional.
The Curlier, The Better!
1. Yes, that’s the motto we go by when it comes to false eyelashes. We strongly believe, by experience, that curling your natural lashes before applying any faux lash is essential to getting your falsies to fit your eye shape better. It also helps your false lashes blend better into your faux ones making them look like your actual lashes. To curl your lashes, just start of the baser of your lash line, then take your lash curler and clamp down on your natural lash hair. Once your eyelashes are properly clamped, just gently squeeze your curler and bend upwards creating a curl in the lash.
Choose Your Glue Wisely
2. It’s time to talk about the elephant in the room: the glue, babe! Before your hands start shaking and your mind starts recalling the last glue nightmare you had to go through, we highly suggest taking a deep-breath-in. Relax! It’s important to note that being nervous is one of the main factors that lead you to the mess you're trying to avoid! So, try to stay as calm as possible before getting started. Once you're calm and have maybe even busted out a few yoga moves, everything will come a little easier. Scouts honor.
Another factor that will drastically change your fake eyelashes experience is the type of glue you are using. If you are using glue that dries white, it’s time for you to stop. The last thing you want is a white layer of glue on your lash line. Instead, aim for a glue that either dries clear or black. It will either not appear at all or enhance your eyeliner for a more dramatic look.
Other than that, using an applicator when your hands are too shaky is always a good solution. Your applicator will allow you a better hold of your false eyelashes. Thus, you will be avoiding smudging the glue all over your lash line and eyelid.
A Mascara Coat, and More Eyeliner
3. No matter the type of false eyelashes you are using, always put on some mascara prior to applying your fake eyelashes. A coat of mascara does not only make your natural eyelashes blend easily with the false ones, but it also gives your false eyelashes a better grip by creating a base they can cling to.
Once that is done and your false eyelashes are on, the final step would be the eyeliner for a more finished and well blended look!

4. Here's the ultimate hack for false eyelashes. You ready? Don't use glue. Have you tried magnetic eyeliner before and magnetic eyelashes? Seriously, this is the best idea since electricity--well, alright, slight exaggeration. But, you get the point, right?
