Step 1: Gather all components.
What you’ll need for this trick is either some false strip eyelashes (you’ll have to cut these up into clusters yourself) or some individual eyelashes or eyelash clusters. They sell an amazing range of strip lashes and packs of individual lashes in Primark. You also need a good eyelash glue, such as DUO Eyelash adhesive. Make sure this glue ISN’T the type you’d use for actual eyelash extensions, these can be dangerous and harmful if not used correctly.
Step 2: Preparation of the clusters.
If you’re using a strip lash, cut it up into about 4 or 5 different sections to create clusters ready for them to be applied. Then take your cluster and apply a small bit of glue onto the top of the lash’s band.
Step 3: Application.
Once the glue has gotten tacky as its dried a little bit, this makes it a lot easier to apply the lashes. To do this, gently lift your eyelid so it exposes the underneath of your top eyelashes a bit more, then simply place the cluster along the bottom of your eyelash line. Doing it underneath rather than on top gives the look of eyelash extensions – it’s a small change but one guaranteed to get you compliments. You can cater your look to suit your needs, whether that’s having short lashes, long lashes, short in the corner and long on the outer corner. You can even layer them on top of each other for a fuller look.
Step 4: Finishing touches.
Your eyelashes should be looking perfect now and feeling securely stuck on, a good trick to ensure they aren’t going to budge is just gently squeeze the base of the lashes with your fingers or tweezers. It’s that simple!
Here’s the finished results…
