Hello my beautiful Glam Girls!
Sahar here, CEO and founder of Glam Girl Lashes. I can't tell you how many times I have heard over the years that people "just can't get fake eyelashes on" or "I've tried and tried but I just can't get them on" It's the number one complaint I receive and the number one request for videos and/or tutorials. Well I'm here to solve your problem!
Let's get started. The very first step before applying any type of falsie is to curl your lashes and apply your mascara as you normally would. Curling your lashes isn't absolutely necessary but it definitely helps the falsies adhere a little bit better to your natural lashes. When you're applying your mascara, you'll want to apply underneath and on TOP of your lashes. This step is super important because you want the false lash to have a nice base and essentially STICK to your natural lashes.
Next, you want to get your eyelash adhesive ready. I've used many different brands of eyelash glue over the years with LOTS of disappointment. It's crazy how many lash adhesives I've tried that actually weren't effective. Think about it, using an eyelash glue that sucks will cause problems that could totally be prevented and it will leave a bad taste in your mouth. The problems I have come across with glues are: takes too long to dry, too messy, difficult to apply (ie squeeze tube) too liquidy and so on. I decided I wanted to take matters into my own hand and come up with a solution to this 'Glue problem' most people are probably dealing with.
Enter Glam Girl Lashes' Lavender Eyeliner Lash Adhesive in 'Clear.' I designed a product that isn't actually a glue but rather an 'eyeliner type adhesive.' Our Lavender Lash Adhesive is formulated to be the consistency of a liquid eyeliner and comes with a precise eyeliner brush for easy application. With the precise eyeliner brush you will be sure to get every last drop of your adhesive without any waste!
This vegan, mess-free formula consists of properties that allow the adhesive to be applied to your eye like an eyeliner and then immediately allow you to press on your falsies. Each drop is infused with real lavender essential oil to promote relaxation (hey, we could all use this) lash growth and overall lash health. Bonus, the lavender scent smells SO much better than that icky gluey scent. There is no wait time, or gluggy mess. If for some reason you don't want to apply directly to your eye, you can simply line your lash band and it will have the same effect. Once you have lined your eye or the lash band with the adhesive, take your falsie immediately and press it as close to your lash line as possible. You can even apply the falsies directly ON to your lashes if you wish. Press it down and hold for a few seconds to ensure it sticks on. It should adhere immediately with no dry time and it will be clear so you don't have to worry about the white glue messing up your makeup or getting on your eyelid or eyelash. The coolest part about this adhesive is that if you need to remove the lash and re-apply for whatever reason you can do just that without needing to add more product. The adhesive actually allows you to remove and re-stick your lashes as needed. No more waiting and worrying that your glue has dried before placing it on your eye!
Okay! So now that you have the best eyelash adhesive, putting on lashes will become much easier and faster, I promise! After your lashes have been applied to your eyes you'll want to sandwich the top and bottom with your fingers to unite the falsies with your natural lashes. You can use your thumb and forefinger or an eyelash applicator tool. This will get rid of any space that's in between your natural lashes and the fake ones. I don't usually recommend topping with mascara as the mascara may ruin the falsies or they won't last as long as they should.
Our faux mink lashes are made only with the highest premium grade synthetic material and are unbelievably long-lasting. Pair them up with our lavender lash adhesive and you are ready for the easiest, most effortless lash application.
