How to Apply Strip Lashes: A Step-by-Step Guide

Achieving a flawless look with strip lashes is easier than you think! Follow these steps for perfect application every time.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies:

  • Strip lashes
  • Lash adhesive
  • Tweezers or a lash applicator
  • Small scissors
  • Eyeliner (optional)
  • Mascara
  • Mirror

Step 2: Prepare Your Natural Lashes:

  • Curl your natural lashes with an eyelash curler to help them blend better with the strip lashes.
  • Apply a coat of mascara to your natural lashes for added volume and support.

Step 3: Measure and Trim the Lashes:

  • Remove the strip lashes from their packaging carefully using tweezers.
  • Hold the lash strip up to your eye to measure its length against your natural lash line.
  • Trim any excess from the outer end of the lash strip to fit your eye shape. Always cut from the outer end, never the inner end.

Step 4: Apply the Adhesive:

  • Apply a thin, even layer of lash adhesive along the lash band. Avoid using too much glue to prevent a messy application.
  • Wait 20-30 seconds for the glue to become tacky. This helps the lashes adhere better.

Step 5: Place the Lashes:

  • Using tweezers or a lash applicator, carefully place the lash strip as close to your natural lash line as possible.
  • Start from the center of your lash line, then attach the outer and inner corners.

Step 6: Secure and Adjust:

  • Gently press along the lash band with your fingertips or tweezers to ensure it is securely adhered to your lash line.
  • If needed, use a cotton swab to press down the edges and make sure they are firmly in place.

Step 7: Finishing Touches:

  • Apply a thin line of eyeliner along the lash band to hide any visible glue and create a seamless look.
  • Use an eyelash curler to gently blend your natural lashes with the strip lashes.
  • Apply another coat of mascara if desired for added volume and cohesion.

Step 8: Removal and Care:

  • To remove the lashes, gently peel them off from the outer corner inward.
  • Use an oil-free makeup remover to clean off any residual adhesive from your eyelids and the lash band.
  • Store your lashes in their original packaging to maintain their shape for future use.

And that's it! With these steps, you'll be able to apply strip lashes like a pro. Enjoy your enhanced, glamorous look!
