False eyelashes are great for special evenings or a glamorous night on the town, but making them look natural can take time. With a few tricks and a little patience, you can make false lashes blend flawlessly with your own lashes. Here are ten steps for making false lashes look perfectly natural.
1. Choose Wisely
Choosing the false lashes that are right for your eyes is the first step to ensuring a good outcome. False lashes shouldn’t be too dense or too long. They are going to blend in with your natural lashes, not replace them entirely. Look for lashes set on a clear band rather than on a black band. Try to choose brown lashes over black, unless you are absolutely certain your lashes are jet black.
Consider using individual false lashes rather than standard strips when you want a less bulky look. Individual lashes are easier to blend than lash strips and thus look a lot more natural. You can apply as many of these as you like to achieve a desired fullness, but the process can take more time than a lash strip if you plan on applying several bundles. One advantage to individual lashes is that if they come off accidentally, the difference between your eyes will be less noticeable than if the same thing happens with lash strips.
