How to Make False Lashes Look Natural
These tricks can make any false lashes look incredible, but most importantly, look natural!
Even cheap falsies from the dollar store can be transformed with these simple tips. Learning how to make false lashes look natural is essential for completing a perfect face of makeup. You want your false lashes to look glamorous, fluffy, and sexy, and most importantly, real!
Choose lashes with a thin and flexible band.
The first tip for making your false lashes look natural is the choice of lashes, of course. It’s important to find lashes that have realistic looking individual lashes, but the real trick is in the band.
If your lash band is thick and bulky, you’ll have a tough time blending the falsies with your natural lashes. The thinner the band the better. This also allows you to carefully place the falsies right on your natural lash line to blend effortlessly.
Our go-to natural lash is always True Glue. True Glue not only has natural looking lashes, but they are also 100% cruelty-free and vegan, made out of the thinnest synthetic fibers to mimic mink fur.
There are three options when it comes to natural lashes, but every style by True Glue is great due to their thin and flexible bands.
The first style we love to wear is . This is great for a natural look because they have different size lash lengths to achieve more realistic looking volume. If Classic is too much for you, the styles of both and have the perfect length and volume for a subtle makeup look that looks extremely natural and is easy to wear.
Trim the falsies according to your eye shape.
Now that we’ve got our favorite pair of lashes picked out, we’re going to customize them to fit our specific eye shape. This only takes a few seconds. Place the false lash on top of your real lashes. This will allow you to see how much of the falsie you need to cut. Remove the lash and trim the excess starting at the outer corner of the lash.
Another way to make false lashes look natural is to cut the lashes in half and only glue the end of the lash to your outer corner. This will create a cat-eye effect and you won’t have to worry about nailing those inner corners.
Brush the false lashes!
Lay your freshly-cut lashes down, preferably in the lash container that it came in. Take any spoolie that you have sitting around and begin brushing the lashes in an upward motion. Don’t be afraid to apply pressure to the lashes.
This step will separate the lashes, making them appear fluffier. It will also give a natural curve to the falsies. This is an essential step for making false lashes look natural. You’ll notice a recognizable difference between the lashes that have been brushed with a spoolie and the ones who have not. Trust us, this is a life changing hack!
Allow the glue to dry down a bit before application.
Now that our lashes are properly prepped, it’s time for a thin layer of glue. The best way to apply lash glue is by focusing on the outer corners of the lash. This will ensure the lashes won’t go popping up in the middle of the day. There’s nothing natural about that!
It’s also great to match your eyelash glue with your eyeshadow look. That’s where True Glue Lash Adhesives come in handy. For example, if you have little to no eyeshadow on using light and natural tones, is the way to go. For bright and vibrant looks, you can match your eyeliner or eyeshadow with your glue by using a or even a . Or if you’re a winged eyeliner lover, match your glue with your liner by using a .
The trick with lash glue is to wait about 30 seconds for it to dry down before applying to your eyes. This will allow the glue to get tacky. If your glue is too fresh, the texture could be too watery to properly stick to your eyes. Plus, it gives you some time for our next step.
Apply a coat of mascara to your natural lashes FIRST.
Last step before the application process we promise! While the glue dries down a bit, we’re going to apply a single coat of mascara to our upper lashes. This will set a base for the lashes to blend with the falsies.
This step is especially important if you have light-colored natural lashes (most blondes can relate). Blending your natural lashes with the false ones could be a bit trickier with the clashing colors. Plus, mascara will give the lashes some thickness, which makes blending the two effortless.
Apply the falsies as close to the lash line as possible.
Amongst the best ways to make false lashes look natural, perfecting your application is key. The first tip we’ll suggest is to look down on your eye with a magnifying mirror. This will allow you to drop the falsies on your natural lash line with ease.
To get the ultimate precision during the application, it’s essential to use a lash tweezer. We always use the because they are carefully designed to hold our favorite lashes. This applicator makes the entire lash application simple. Hold the lash with confidence and security and you’ll be able to drop the band onto the lash line in seconds.
Apply mascara to both the natural and false lashes.
The final step in our natural falsies routine is to apply one last coat of mascara to both your natural and false lashes. This step will comb both sets of lashes together and blend the color effortlessly. It takes two seconds, but it will provide a natural finish and hold them in place all day.
