Heavens no, this is NOT the eyelash tutorial you’ve been looking for. However, if you’ve been intimidated by applying eyelashes, this may ease your concern!

Applying Eye Lashes as a Beginner
So I did it. I’ve been wanting to try applying false lashes for the first time but was super intimidated by it so I kept putting it off.
“Will I rip my real eyelashes off?”
“Will it fall off, mid-sentence, while I’m having coffee with a friend?”
Those were real thoughts I had going through my head until I decided to just grow a set of … ahem… and pull my big girl panties up and roll with it.
So in Fantabulosity fashion, I couldn’t do this alone. I knew that I had to get this on video so I could share the hot mess attempt with you, and in turn, hopefully encourage you to attempt it too if you’ve been putting it off.
After the video, you can see the list of items I used and the links of where to buy them in case you’d like to try what I used too!
Eyelashes, Glue & Tools
Now, although I had no idea what in the heck I was doing when applying them, I DID do my research on products by asking my makeup stylist what to use (You know, the one who showed me how to cover the dark circles under my eyes?) so I at least started on the right foot with that. But other than that, I was winging it!
Here’s what I used:
- Ardell Eyelashes (I used the “wispies” but plan to use the “natural” next time to see how I like those!)
- Callas Eyelash Glue
- Ardell Eyelash Applicator
So Tell Me…
Are you well experienced in applying eyelashes? What are your favorite products? I’d love to hear and try them out!
Or are you a beginner too? I’d love to hear if you’re going to try it now!
Drop me a note in the comments or email me and we’ll chat about it! I love making new friends!
I’m going to try these after watching your video…súper cute! Did you ever try the “naturals”? Just wondering which to try first.
BTW, found your blog from your fabulous oven-baked burgers…will never make them any other way now! Such a hit, thanks!
Hi Nanette! Awww, yay! I’m so glad that you found the blog through the burger recipe! I love those so much too. You’re so sweet for taking the time to let me know. You know what… I haven’t tried the naturals yet. I’m still using the box that I used for this video, haha! (Can you tell I don’t wear them often?!) But I do still plan on trying out the naturals. However, we just had family photos taken and I wore these… and I don’t regret it one bit. They really stood out! (But not in a “hey look at me” way. Haha!)
My friend was just telling me that I need to try fake eyelashes. They look great on her. Thanks for showing me how to do it!
You’re so welcome! I hope you love them and find it easy!
