If you weren’t born with lashes that touch the edges of your sunglasses, you’ve probably, like so many of us, tried every eyelash lengthening mascara on the market to try and lengthen your natural lashes by even a millimeter. Let’s get this straight: makeup helps so much but can be infuriating. No matter how hard you try or what products you use, those sparse, short lashes never have the volume you desire.
And it’s when this realization comes that you run for cover. When you start looking for other ways to lengthen your lashes, you’ll find that there are some pretty crazy methods available and some that are completely useless. Serums tell us they lengthen and thicken lashes, but the results take months to see small results and can bring some really undesirable side effects like discoloration of the eyelids and iris. Extension methods then seem a little less invasive until you realize that because each individual extension is glued to your natural lashes, when they fall off, they both fall off taking you further back than where you started. But luckily, there are false eyelashes.
False eyelashes: a powerful beauty ally
The ultimate clean option is false eyelashes. Nothing provides as much volume and length as a great pair of false eyelashes, possibly reusable ones. They’re easy to apply, easy to wear, a breeze to remove and generally well tolerated by all.
If you’ve been considering strip false eyelashes to lengthen and add volume to your lashes you may have wondered if they can create damage to your natural lashes. And given the above, we’d be surprised if you haven’t asked yourself this question.
The good news is that no, false eyelashes will not ruin your real lashes. In fact, they don’t interfere with natural growth and health at all. These simple devices, when applied correctly, sit just above the natural lash line on your eyelid. Although eyelash adhesive can sometimes reach the base of your natural lashes, it is completely safe and gentle, so you don’t have to worry about possible damage either during application or removal.
How do false eyelashes work?
PinkPanda false eyelashes are really easy to use. After applying them once or twice, you’ll feel really confident about the application and will be able to put them on quickly and easily, without wasting time in the morning or before leaving the house. However, the first time can be a little tricky as a process, so we recommend the application tool. In fact, using an eyelash applicator can eliminate much of the frustration from the first application, but it’s also used by the more experienced who like speed and precision. Let’s see together what is the fastest and most precise way to proceed with the application.
First apply your makeup, including your eye shadow. Just skip the mascara application for now, we’ll put that on later. Curl your natural lashes with a steel eyelash curler. In fact, false lashes have a natural curve, so curling your lashes can help your false lashes blend with your natural ones. Curling your lashes won’t damage them if you use a rubber coated eyelash curler and press it gently. At this point, apply mascara if you feel like you need it.
Remove the false eyelashes from the package and apply a thin line of eyelash adhesive to the cotton band at their base. Wait for the glue to become sticky, it takes about 10-20 seconds.
Using the lash application tool, gently press the strip of false lashes right above the natural lash line. Let it dry for a few minutes. You can test the result of this by gently pulling the middle part to make sure they are fully attached. That’s it! Easy, right? Your lashes are done and ready for the day. You’ll probably forget they’re even there. And if you’re worried that eyelash glue might be harmful, don’t worry: most eyelash adhesives are strong enough to hold your lashes in place, but gentle enough not to be irritating to even the most sensitive skin. Don’t forget to be gentle on removal, too, and then…enjoy your new look whenever you can!
