The Wowcher Guide To False Lashes



False lashes can be the perfect finishing touch to glam up your evening look – get them right like Kylie Jenner and you can propel your look to Hollywood starlet in a f-lash, get them wrong and you could end up looking like Daisy the Cow! Wowcher’s here to show you how to apply your lashes perfectly every time, without fail, in five simple steps with handy images to illustrate each stage as we go… Fabulous!


Stage 1: Once all of your makeup is applied, add a small amount of mascara to strengthen and darken your real lashes to match the falsies.


Stage 2: Carefully add a good amount of glue to the strip and wait for it to dry so the glue is more sticky than wet.


Stage 3: Starting at the centre of your eye and using tweezers if you prefer, stick the strip to your eyelid. Aim to get as close to your lash line as possible.


Stage 4: Using your tweezers (or fingers if you find it easier), press the lashes onto the outer and inner corners of your eyelids.  Hold for a few seconds to make sure they’re stuck.


Stage 5: Press with your fingers for a secure fit and to incorporate with your natural lashes – et voilà!

Get the look: We used these DVA strip lashes in ‘Diva’. They create a dramatic look with impact that’s perfect for a night on the town. Each pack contains ten pairs of hand-crafted and tied lashes and includes a pot of black glue – ideal for beginners without that perfect precision. Flutter your feathery feline peepers with dazzling results!
