Long, full lashes are in and getting the look right is a question Crystal gets a lot.

Dear Panci,

How do you apply false eyelashes on yourself?  I always try, but it always so hard and messy? So I just end up giving up.




What are the proper steps?

●    Size the lashes to your eye and trim outter or inner lash.

●    Apply the lash glue to the outer seam of the eyelash strip with an applicator or small brush. …

●    Let the glue get a tacky for a about 10 seconds.

●    Tilt your head back and look down.

●    Using a tweezer or lash applicator, lace the strip on your eyelid, positioning it as close as possible to your natural lashes. …

●    Appy from enter and secure outer then inner lash into the right position

●    Allow the glue to dry naturally. …

●    Apply mascara to your lashes. …

●    Apply liquid eyeliner along your upper lids to hid glue strip (Optional)
