How To Apply Lashes

Step 1: Measure and Trim

Hold the lashes against your natural lash line to determine if they are the right length. If they’re too long, carefully trim the outer edge to fit your eye shape using the Brushworks Nail Scissors.

Step 2: Let it Curve

Sometimes lashes can flatten when you take them out of the box and then they run the risk of lifting on the inner and outer corners. To avoid this, carefully hold either end of the lash and roll the lash in a “U” shape. This will help keep the curve of the lash making it fit along your eye better!

Step 3: Apply Adhesive

Grab your Eye Candy Precision Tweezer Duo and gently pick up your lashes. Apply a thin layer of Hold Tight Eyelash Glue along the lash band and wait for up to 30 seconds for the glue to get tacky. This step is crucial to prevent the lashes from sliding around during application.

Alternatively, grab the Eye Candy Lash Adhesive Pen and apply a coat evenly along the lash line as close as possible. Make sure to wait 20-30 seconds as well to give the glue enough time to get tacky.

Step 4: Apply the Lashes

Using the Brushworks Compact Mirror and your tweezers, position the lash as close to your natural lash line as possible. Start by attaching the centre of the lash band, then secure the inner and outer corners. Press gently to ensure they stick down well.

Once the inner and outer corners are in place, you can either use your fingers or you can use the Brushworks Precision Lash Applicator to gently press together and blend your natural lashes with your falsies.

Step 5: Final Touches

If desired, you can use the Brushworks Eyelash Curler to blend your natural and fake lashes. Be very gentle to avoid damaging the lashes. You can also apply a thin line of eyeliner to conceal the lash band and create a seamless look. Finish the look with mascara on your lower lashes if desired.

Care and Reuse


Removing false eyelashes is a breeze with a little care. Begin by gently peeling them off from the outer corner to the inner corner. Remember to be gentle to protect your natural lashes and avoid pulling any out.

To ensure you get the most out of your gorgeous lashes, remember to store them in their original packaging to maintain their shape and cleanliness for future use. With proper care, you can reuse both Eye Candy and Invogue Lashes multiple times. Remove any adhesive residue and mascara with a gentle makeup remover and they’ll be good as new!
