Tips and Tricks For Making False Lashes Look Natural

False lashes have become a go-to accessory in today’s beauty world, especially for those seeking to enhance their eye makeup game. Whether attending a special event or wanting to elevate your everyday look, false lashes can do the magic. However, you must make them look as natural as possible to achieve a flawless look.


Applying false lashes can be tricky, especially if you’ve never done them before or are new to them. Not to mention, sometimes they can look unnatural, which, let’s be honest, isn’t the look we’re going for.


In this blog post, we'll explore tips and tricks for achieving a flawless and effortlessly natural look with your false lashes.


  1. Choose the Right Lashes for Your Eye Shape: Choosing lashes that suit your eye shape is the first step towards achieving a natural false lash look. Some might ask this question: How do I know the right pair that complements my eye shape? You can know this by doing some research using keywords like “best lashes for round eyes” or “false lashes for almond eyes”. This will help you find lashes specifically designed for your eye shape. Properly chosen lashes will naturally enhance your eyes, making them look bigger and more defined.

  1. Trim Your Lashes for Custom Fit: One common mistake when using false lashes is neglecting to trim them to fit your eye shape and length. Failing to do so can make your lashes appear unnatural and uncomfortable. You can watch YouTube videos on how to trim false lashes for better guidance on achieving a custom fit. Remember, the goal is to make your false lashes look natural and mimic the natural length and curve of your own lashes.


  1. Invest in High-Quality Adhesive (Lash Glue): Using the right adhesive is crucial for achieving a natural look. Opt for a high-quality lash glue that is latex-free and designed to hold lashes securely without causing irritation. Keywords like "best lash adhesive for sensitive eyes" will help you find the perfect adhesive for your needs.


Many makeup professionals and enthusiasts prefer black adhesive because it is the same shade as their false lashes, liner, and mascara. However, a clear glue will also help you achieve a natural look.


  1. Apply Lashes Close to the Natural Lash Line: When applying false lashes, make sure to place them as close to your natural lash line as possible. This technique ensures a seamless blend between your natural lashes and the falsies, creating a more natural appearance.


  1. Choose Lashes with an Invisible Lash Band: The more visible the lash band, the less natural your false lashes will look. Instead, opt for lashes with an invisible band that is completely clear in colour. Invisible lash bands provide a much more undetectable look once applied. At Minerva Lashes, one of the features of our lash collections is an invisible lash band.


  1. Use Eyeliner to Conceal the Lash Band: To further enhance the natural look, apply a thin line of eyeliner along the lash line to hide the lash band, especially if you are not using lashes with an invisible lash band. Opt for a waterproof eyeliner for longer-lasting results.


  1. Curl and Mascara Your Natural Lashes: Before applying false lashes, curl your natural lashes and apply a coat of mascara. This will help your natural lashes blend seamlessly with the falsies. Some people like to apply mascara to the false lashes after application to blend them. Still, mascara build-up can sometimes make false lashes look unnatural, which we try to avoid.


  1. Practice Makes Perfect: Applying false lashes takes practice, like any skill. Don't be discouraged if you don't get it right the first time. There are a lot of tutorials and resources to help you improve. With time and practice, you'll master the art of making false lashes look natural.


Finally, achieving a natural look with false lashes is about the right choices and techniques. From choosing the right lashes for your eye shape to using high-quality glue and mastering the application process, these tips and tricks will help you achieve a naturally stunning look.
