Individual lashes are a lot more natural than lash strips because they gives you the control to add as many or as little as you want. To get started, here's what you'll need: individual lashes, an eyelash curler, eyelash glue in a dark color, like black or grey, tweezers, and eye makeup like mascara and eye liner. The key to any false lash look is finding lashes that blend in with your own. So first is trying to decide on a length. The longer lashes are a little dramatic and look fake, so stick to shorter styles. Or if you have naturally long lashes, you can go for a medium length. and then decide whether you want natural or flared lashes. Today, we're going to use flared because they have a natural curl that really brightens up the eye and glams up any look. Next, put on your eyeliner so that it blends in with your lash line and they look like your own. Now your lashes need something to sit and balance on when you apply them, so give them a good curl and apply a couple of coats of mascara. mascara, also try heating up your eyelash curler so that the eyelashes stay lifted longer.

From there, look down or close your eye and place the lash directly on your lash line or as close as possible. It's kind of like you're balancing the lash on the lash line.

If you don't get the last directly on the lash line, don't worry because the glue dries black so it won't be noticeable. also don't be afraid to adjust the lashes with your finger. To really amp things up and look like you have lashes for days, go ahead and fill in the rest of your eye with the lashes. Try stacking them on top of one another for a fluttery, doe eyed look and really vamp it up. To blend them in with your real lashes and help them stay put, apply a few coats put some mascara, starting with the root, ending with the tip and shaking the wand from side to side to make sure you coat them all. And there you have it, it really it's that easy. It takes a little bit of practice but once you master it you'll look irresistible, and it takes no time at all.
