Using high quality false eyelashes will ensure the easiest application and the most natural look. For best results, apply foundation and powder before applying your lashes. We also recommend trying our Eyelash Applicator to help make the application process easier. Simply place the strip eyelash on the applicator to hold it in place while you apply glue to the band, then press the lash into your eyelid at the lash line and hold it down for a few seconds before releasing the applicator.
With a little practice, you will be able to apply false eyelashes like an expert in no time!
How to make false lashes look more natural:
Eyelashes with an invisible band, like our #232 Natural Everyday Lashes or #100 Professional Eyelashes will give you the most realistic look because they won't give the appearance of a harsh line at the lash line. Using this type of strip lash when you have your own lashes to blend with will give you a flawless look. If you don't have eyelashes, try choosing false eyelashes that are fuller and feature a thin band like our #201 Natural Layers Eyelash or the #231 True to Life Eyelash.
When applying the lashes, use eyeliner to disguise the lash band or to blend the seam in with your own lashes if you have them. Some people prefer to apply liner first and then apply the lashes, while others like to apply liner over the lash band. Do what works best for you! We love Cardani Indelible Eyeliner because it applies easily and has so many color choices. Applying a quality mascara like Ultimate Volume Mascara over your lashes will also help them blend in with your existing lashes. Always be sure to trim your lashes down to fit your eyelid width. Having your lashes match up precisely with the corners of your eyes will help your false lashes appear more realistic.
How to separate eyelashes:
When wearing false eyelashes with existing eyelashes or when using mascara, sometimes the lashes can clump together. Use a small eyelash comb or one side of a pair of tweezers and gently wiggle the end between areas of the lashes that appear to be clumped together. This should separate the lashes and make them appear fuller.
How to get thicker eyelashes:
Applying mascara over your false lashes will help them appear thicker. We love Cardani Ultimate Volume Mascara. For best results, apply a thick coat of mascara at the base of your lashes by wiggling the mascara wand back and forth and then lightly combing through the length of your lashes.
How to use an eyelash curler:
Using an eyelash curler can help your false eyelashes appear more realistic by giving them a natural shape. The curler can also help blend false lashes with your own lashes if you have them. You want to curl your lashes after applying the false lashes, but before applying mascara. Once you have applied your false lashes, open the lash curler and position your lashes between the two sides of the curler. You want the curler to be positioned close to the eyelid, but not directly on it. Gently press the curler closed and hold for 2-3 seconds. Release the curler to open and remove from lashes. Repeat if necessary. This process should be done slowly and gently, as to not damage the lashes.
Caring for Your False Eyelashes
How to remove strip eyelashes:
Loosen glue adhesive by soaking a cotton ball or makeup sponge in an oil based cleanser and pressing gently into the area where the lash band is attached. Then, gently pull the strip of eyelashes off of your eyelid starting at the inside corner of your eye. Be sure to hold lashes by the strip and not by the ends of the hairs to avoid damage or breakage.
How to clean false eyelashes:
After removing your lashes, use a cotton swab dipped in eyelash adhesive remover to gently wipe away any glue residue. Do not soak your false lashes in remover, as this can damage the hairs. We recommend Cardani False Eyelash Glue Remover to make removing the residue from your eyelash glue quick and easy. This formula is safe to use and helps to extend the life of your eyelashes.
How to make your false eyelashes last longer:
Using high quality eyelash glue and glue remover will help to ensure that you get the most wear out of your false eyelashes. We recommend using Cardani Secure Hold Glue and Cardani False Eyelash Glue Remover when caring for your false eyelashes.Cleaning your lashes after each use is the best way to extend the life of your eyelashes. For best results, be sure to clean excess glue from your lashes immediately after removing them.
How to remove eyelash glue from your skin:
To remove any stuck on eyelash glue from your eyelid, we recommend using an oil based cleanser or baby oil on a cotton swab to gently remove any residue from your skin.
Common Eyelash Buying Questions:
How long do false eyelashes last?
Depending on how well you care for your lashes, most people find that they can wear one pair of high quality human hair lashes (like our Cardani lashes) for 8-10 wears or longer before needing to replace them. Some of our customers even report being able to wear one pair of our human hair lashes for a month or so before replacing! Cleaning your lashes thoroughly after each wear and storing them properly is the key to getting the most longevity out of one pair of lashes. Always store lashes out of direct sunlight and in a cool, dry area and in the original case. If you want to extend the life of your lashes even more, try choosing dark lashes that don't require mascara. Mascara can build up on lashes and make cleaning more difficult and wear down you false lashes quicker.
How long can you wear false eyelashes?
You can typically wear a set of false eyelashes for an entire day before needing to remove, clean and reapply. If the lashes start to lift at the ends after several hours of wear, you can gently dab a small amount of lash glue underneath the end of the lash and press it back into place without removing the entire lash.
