Tips to use strip false lashes
There is a possibility that strip false lashes may not fit one’s shape of the eye properly. A piece of common advice given by most makeup artists for a clean finish is to trim off the full strip lash slightly to make it perfect for one’s eyes. If one wants to use the strip false lash but are not sure whether it will fit their eyes, they should cut the false lash into 2 to 3 parts and use a good adhesive so that the ends of the false lashes stay in place.
The application of this type of false lashes is certainly difficult when one starts using them, but it gets easier with time and practice. It may seem difficult to look down and apply strip false lashes as one will have the urge to look up to check whether they are placed correctly. However, looking down will give a flatter surface for the application of false lashes.
To apply false lashes perfectly in the difficult corners, one should use a pair of tweezers for holding the corners of the lash in the right position while the adhesive allows the band to set.
