Step 1

Get started by curling your eyelashes and putting mascara on them as usual. This will provide an optimal base and help your eyelashes merge with the falsies as one.

To curl your eyelashes, lift up the eyelid, look straight forward, and curl them from the roots. Clump the curler shut only when you feel comfortable! Count to 5 and carefully open the curler.

If you need to, trim them as many times as you need from the outside corner with the longest false lashes, and not from the inside one with the shortest ones. All eyes are different, so you must make sure you trim them according to your eye shape.

In case your false eyelashes don’t include glue, Hollie recommends DUO, which is waterproof.

Step 10

And here comes the trick: make sure you leave the glue dry enough until the glue goes tacky, because if you apply it while it’s still completely wet, you’ll have to hold and wait for it to dry for long, which can cause an almost guaranteed mess.

To check when it’s already tacky enough, simply tap the glue with a finger.

Once the glue is tacky, hold the false lashes by the middle with your tweezers or fingers, look forward in front of the mirror, and gently place them upon yours.

Look down and hold down the false lashes by the outer and inner corners with your fingers. The amount of time for which you’ll need to hold it down depends on the quality of the glue you applied.

Wait for a few seconds and try lifting your finger to check if the falsies pop up. If they do, they’re not ready yet, but if they don’t, you can tap them down just to be sure and move on to the next step.

If applying eyeliner into the inner rim of the eye’s upper lid is uncomfortable for you, you can try applying black liquid eyeliner along the outside top instead to fill the gaps between the eye and the falsies’ band. (Hollie used L’Oreal Super Liner Black Lacquer.)
