How to Apply Natural Looking False Eyelashes

If you're a fan of the natural look but you've yet to find a false eyelash style you like, this is the blog post for you! There are a few different ways you can apply false eyelashes to achieve a subtle look. We're revealing all of our juicy secrets in this article...


Use Corner Lashes

Corner lashes will help you elevate your eye makeup look without overdoing it. The addition of corner lashes will make round eyes look more elongated and cat-like. When coupled with winged eyeliner or eyeshadow, you'll get that sexy Bella Hadid-esque lifted eye look that's always on-trend.


If your eyes are already naturally elongated, you can use corner lashes to make the cat-eye effect even more dramatic. It's all about the look you're trying to achieve! Play around with different corner lash styles to find the ideal option for your eye shape.

For those who struggle to apply full-sized lashes, corner lashes require half the effort. Minimum effort, maximum impact, all 2022. 

Instead of fiddling around with the inner corner of your eyelash, you simply need to place your corner lashes on the outer edge of your eyes. Place a strip of eyelash glue on the lash, wait for it to get tacky and look down into a mirror whilst positioning your lash.

Making Your Lash Application as Natural as Possible

There's nothing worse than spotting a stray eyelash in a selfie, so you'll need to take extra care when applying your lashes to make sure they look as natural and as seamless as possible.

We've listed all the tools you'll need for applying natural looking false eyelashes below...


Eyelash Curlers

The first step in the false lash application process is always curling your natural lashes. Therefore, you'll need a set of trusty eyelash curlers in your makeup bag at all times.

Make sure your eyelash curlers are clean and free from debris like mascara and lash glue to protect your lashes during the curling process. 

If you're more experienced with this tool, you can use a hairdryer to heat up metal lash curlers before using them. This will make sure the effect lasts as long as possible! 

Of course, take extra care not to overheat your lash curlers and burn yourself if you're going to take this step. 


Clear Lash Glue

Unless you're wearing black eyeliner or dark eye makeup, you should always opt for an eyelash glue that dries clear when applying false eyelashes. 

This ensures your eye makeup stays intact and makes your false lashes blend seamlessly with your own.

Mascara is key when it comes to making your false eyelashes look as natural as possible. This will help you blend your real lashes with the fake ones, but it's important not to overdo it to avoid making the lashes clumpy.


False Eyelash Maintenance and Storage

The final step in perfecting the natural eyelash look is looking after your falsies when you're not wearing them. This involves cleaning them with a gentle soap or micellar water and storing them safely for their next use.

Why is this so important? If not, you'll create a build-up of lash glue, mascara and bacteria on your lashes, which is just as bad for your eye makeup look as it is for your health!
