Need advice about false eyelashes. I have practices with false eyelashes for the last year and get very frustrated attempting to use them. I use the Duo glue Marlena recommends and Ardel lashes, However, I have problems everytime I try to use them. I either get glue on my eye lids and mess up my makeup or cant get my eyelashes lined up correctly. Ugh…any suggestions? I have tried using hands and tools to apply them. Still no luck. I end up having to re do my eye makeup everytime I attempt to put them on. I have very short and few eyelashes so I would love to be able to use them. Thanks for any input.

I bought an Ardell lash kit one time, and the applicator that comes with it helps so much! The two things I do that help me is when applying:
*I close my lid and apply the lash while it completely vertical, so the lashes are actually sticking straight up in the air as I place them. This helps me get them as close to my lash line as possible, without smearing the glue.
*I put them on FIRST. Theres always one side that messes up, no matter how careful I am, so it helps to do lashes first, and then continue with my eye makeup. Just let the lashes completely dry for a few minuets if you decide to go that routeJune 20, 2012 at 7:15 pm #177563
Put a blob of glue on the back of your hand, run the back of the lash along it, let it go tacky, then apply.June 22, 2012 at 2:52 pm #177780

thanks guys. I do wait the glue gets tacky…doesnt seem to help me any lol. But will try putting lashes on first and see if that helps. Not sure if I understand what you mean by putting them on vertically..but may try the kit to see if that works. Thanks so muchJune 22, 2012 at 7:04 pm #177795
Applying lashes is honestly so very easy. Don’t be so afraid of messing it up .. if you are .. I believe you will.
Hold one of the lashes with your thumb & point finger, put a thin line of glue, air it lightly so that it gets tacky. .now get to a mirror very close up
and close one of your eye ( the one that that lash is for) and keep the other one open. Now with the closed eye, open it slightly just if you are peeking , then you can see exactly what it’ll look like and where it’s placed on your eyes. Aim for them to go as close to the lashline as you can and press gently on both corners with your fingers .. now keep your eye still peeking or close it very lightly and let it dry completely.
I wouldn’t recommend putting lashes first and then eye make up, as eye make up can cause fall off on your lashes and that’s not very pretty.
Hope this helped !

Marlena has a video and several articles written up on this you should check them out they helped me a lot.June 30, 2012 at 8:34 pm #178943
I used to have the hardest time putting false eyelashes on, and in the end, the problem was simply too much glue. Maybe give using less glue a shot?July 1, 2012 at 6:46 am #179002
To be honest I tend to go for individual eyelashes, I find them easier to apply than a full set even if it takes a bit more time.
Maybe start with half sets, the ones that are on the outer corner only? They’re easier to put on and great for practice!
