I was in the cosmetic salon pondering whether or not to get those beautiful false eyelashes. I knew that putting on eyelashes for the first time would require knowledge that I didn’t have. I wanted to look beautiful for the New Year’s Eve party, but I was afraid that my lack of skill in this area would turn me into a clown.
Fortunately, the young shop assistant saw my inner suffering and provided me with some eyelash application advice, which I would like to share with fellow makeup amateurs.
There are make-up professionals who believe that applying eyelashes during the day is a sign of bad taste, while others argue that eyelashes may be applied at any time, so long as the correct ones are used. Personally, I favor the second option. I feel and perform better when I have a modern and attractive appearance. Therefore, the first and most essential step is to determine the type of look you desire and when and where you will wear your makeup. When applying eyelashes for a night out at a club, you should choose eyelashes that are longer and thicker, and if they have a unique design or shape like lashes with decals, so much the better. For a day at the office, a business meeting, or even a cocktail hour in the afternoon, though, you need eyelashes that are medium or shorter in length.
Choose the appropriate hue. Always go for natural hues throughout the day; colored eyelashes for unique parties; and always choose black when wearing false eyelashes for a sophisticated occasion.
A true lady is aware that new makeup cannot be put on a dirty face, let alone on makeup from the previous day. Thus, you should cleanse your face, especially around the eyes, with a cotton pad and a small amount of hydrating face cream. Clean skin makes it much easier to apply eyelashes.
Numerous amateur makeup artists make the grave error of putting eyelashes first, followed by foundation and other cosmetics. Never forget that eyelash application should be the final component of your makeup routine. First, put on your foundation, then your blush, eye shadow, and eyeliner, and lastly, your eyelashes.
The application of a full set of eyelashes should not take longer than five minutes. Take care when removing the eyelashes from the tray. Whenever necessary, use tweezers. Please do not use any other type of glue for gluing eyelashes besides the glue included in the eyelash application kit. Examine the fit of the false eyelashes by placing them over your real lashes. If they are excessively long, simply trim a bit off the external corner, but never the internal corner. Apply the adhesive to the edge of the false eyelashes and adhere them as closely as possible to your real lashes, using your fingers or tweezers. Close your eyes for three to four minutes after fixing your eyeglasses to let the glue dry properly.
It is strongly recommended to apply mascara after putting on false eyelashes since it blends the artificial and natural eyelashes for a natural appearance. Additionally, the mascara creates the illusion of longer and more curved eyelashes.
The nice-shop worker also suggested that I try putting on the eyelashes a few times before the party to get used to putting them on and using the right amount of glue.
Applying eyelashes has become a simple aspect of cosmetics after following all of these helpful recommendations. During the party, I felt more gorgeous and admired than ever before.
