Figuring out how to apply false lashes is something that can feel nothing short of terrifying. If you’re scared, don’t be! It’s an easy technique to learn, and with my easy application trick you’ll be batting some lush lashes in no time. I promise!
When Painted Ladies was brand, spanking new, I took out my video camera in the middle of the night and created a false lash application video that was nothing short of horrendous. Besides the yellow ambient lighting courtesy of my then-kitchen (what was I thinking?), I managed to duck down at the precise moment I applied the lashes. We all have to start somewhere, but it was so bad I ditched it a while back.
It’s been my intention to create a better video showing how to apply false lashes, and I’m thrilled to report the dream was fulfilled. Here’s a quick how-to video with my no-fail false lash application tricks.
The lashes I used in this video are the Katy Perry by Eylure lashes in Feline Fierce.
Notice the tricked out video? My Windows Movie Maker keeps crashing at the most inopportune times, so I did what I could! I have to thank my friend Michael who guided me through the process of making my videos look better. He’s pretty amazing and knows how to make sushi, so please check out and subscribe to his brand new YouTube channel, Lifestyles of the Fit and Busy. He really is super busy AND super fit, so he knows what he’s talking about!
