Individual lashes are one of my all time favorite beauty tricks. They make me feel instantly better. Once, I was watching football at with my friends and felt SO tired and looked tired. I left the restaurant, went out to my car, put on individual lashes and came back in. Insane? Yes. But those lashes made me look more awake and I felt one zillion times better, so it was worth looking a little crazy in front of my friends for.
You can dot a few that are the same length as your natural lashes right at your lash line to create a thicker looking lash. Lately though, my favorite ways to wear them is full and thick all the way across my lash line, just like a strip lash.
I get the same effect as a natural style strip lash, but the individuals last longer (no pulling up at the edges or middle) and they look more natural. Whenever I do the style shown in the video, people always ask if they are my natural lashes.
Video? Yes, video. Whoop-whoop! I felt like this was a tutorial better suited to video, so I did a start-to-finish tutorial to show the technique and how each lash is placed. At the end, I also put in a few of my favorite tips. This is a thorough video, I hope it helps! Ask questions below, or on the video if there is any part that makes you still say “whaaaa?”
P.S. to take off these lashes, I just make sure to gently pat a little DHC Deep Cleansing Oil at the lash line and let it sit for a minute. Then I wash my face and the lashes slide right off, zero tugging or pulling!
Individual lashes: In the video, I’m using Red Cherry lashes, it’s easier to find Ardell lashes and they are the same quality and price. Extra Short // Short // Medium // Long // Multipack (You don’t need all 4 sizes, just 2-3 based on your own lash length, you can also buy one length and trim as needed)
Duo Tinted lash glue
Tweezers – I use these to apply my lashes, but they also get every hair for brow shaping
Lash scissors – this pair is way cuter and smaller than mine, better for precision trimming!
Lash curler – best lash curler
Lorac Liner – best thin tip for fine lines
Mascara was a sample of Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill
Waterline liner – Ardency Inn (best waterline liner ever)
Sonia Kashuk Lash Comb
I really do hope the video is helpful, but ask any questions you have! Individual lashes do seem to be the one beauty area that has more of a learning curve, but once you learn them, they make a huge impact!
