We are not all blessed with lashes that stretch from here to there, so false lashes in many cases are a must. False lashes were created to enhance what you have, whether you desire a natural or dramatic look. They come in different lengths, shapes, colors and textures. Whatever you choose it should make your eye lashes look as natural as they can.

How To Apply False Lashes

Before applying the lashes, it is recommended to first line the base of the lash with a dark colored eyeliner, preferably black, very thinly. This will serve as the base for the lashes. You can conceal the lash band this way. For proper length, place the fake lash (without glue) on the drawn line. Measure from the inside of the eye to the end, to make sure that it is the proper length and does not have to be cut. If it extends to far past the natural lash line, then cut the end for appropriate length. To apply lash, take eye lash glue, and line the full edge of the fake lash. Take one end of the lashes and add at the corner of your eye, and apply as close to the normal lash line as possible and press both your original lash and fake lash together to adhere. You can start by applying at the outer corner of the eyes and then towards the nose. 

Here are some of the most flattering lashes that can be used for a natural look or more enhanced look.
