How To Apply Strip Lashes

How To Apply Strip Lashes

Step 1. Fit The Lashes

  1. Hold the strip lash up to your eyelid to see if it's the right size.

Before you apply any eyelash strip adhesive, check to see that the strip lash is the right size for your eyes. Hold the lash strip up to your upper eyelid and place it against your lash line so it's right on the edge of your eyelid. The whole strip lash should fit on your eyelid and match up with your natural lash line. If the lash strip is longer than your natural lash line, then it's too long.

Step 2. Trim Strip (if needed)

      2. Use a sharp pair of small scissors to cut across the strip. Trim it down to the desired size for your eyelid. Cut straight across the strip at a perpendicular angle going from the outside to the inside of the lash strip. This is important so that you don't cut off part of the remaining lashes.


Step 3. Soften Lashes 

         3. If the lash strips you're applying are brand new, soften them up to improve the fit. Place 1 of the lash strips on your index finger between the knuckle and fingernail. Press the strip around your finger and hold it there for about 10 seconds to shape and soften the strip. Repeat for your second lash.

Step 4. Remove adhesive

         4. Remove the old adhesive from the strip if you've worn it before. Look at the lash to see if there is any old adhesive stuck to it. Grasp the adhesive with your fingers and pull it away from the strip. It may come off in 1 piece or you may need to pull off multiple small pieces of leftover adhesive.

*Suggestion* Apply eye make-up before adding lashes.

Step 5. Applying adhesive

         5. Squeeze the eyelash adhesive tube to dispense a dot of glue at the tip. Then, rub the edge of the strip along the tip of the dot at the end of the adhesive tube. Distribute the glue evenly along the strip. Wait until tacky before applying lash.

  • Be careful not to get the adhesive on the lashes.
  • Do not blow on the lash strip after you apply the glue! This will introduce bacteria and it may cause the lash strip adhesive to dry too quickly.

Step 6. Applying Lashes

         6. Once the glue is distributed evenly along the strip, position the strip on your eyelid right along your lash line. Make sure that the adhesive is facing down towards your eyelid. Use your fingers or a pair of tweezers (or Lash Applicator) to press the strip down gently along your lash line. Make sure to keep your eyes open while you're doing this! ( To prevent the glue from latching on to lower lash.

Tip: To make it easier to see your lash line, position a handheld mirror on a table or counter and look down at it as you apply the lashes. Wait 5 minutes after applying the second lash if you want to touch up your makeup or apply mascara to the lashes. An extra coat of mascara and some black eyeliner along your lash line will help to hide the edge of the strip.
