How to apply fake eyelashes?
You have to admit that the beautifully emphasized eye setting delights everyone. In just 1-2 hours, you can thicken and extend eyelashes using the best products and techniques. However, the application of fake eyelashes is not something that can be performed by everyone. You need skills and experience. It is a cosmetic procedure that requires precision, patience and the use of the best solutions.
Proper application of fake eyelashes is related to several factors:
- stylist skills,
- the eyelash extension technique used,
- products and tools used.
In addition, the conditions in the salon, such as humidity and air temperature should be considered. It is also important to provide appropriate lighting and comfortable conditions for both the client and the stylist.

It is worth mentioning that natural eyelashes should be thoroughly cleaned and dried before application. However, these factors are also an individual issue, as the chosen adhesives better bind on moistened eyelashes for example.
The individual approach of the eyelash stylist
Therefore, the abovementioned individual approach of the beautician is crucial – when you have very curly eyelashes, the stylist can stick fake lashes from underneath. When natural eyelashes are straight, then the best method is to apply the fake lash from the top. The application of the fake eyelash can therefore be done from the bottom, from the side and from the top – individual approach to each eyelash and the right angle will guarantee better access and precise sticking of the fake lash. A common mistake made by unqualified stylists lies in sticking the fake eyelash too close to the eyelid, which can cause discomfort and itching. Sticking one fake eyelash to several natural ones is also an unacceptable mistake. This is a huge burden on one eyelash, which can lead to its weakening and faster loss.
It should be remembered that incorrectly performed treatment may unfortunately result in the rapid loss of fake eyelashes, and even irritate the eyes. Choosing a professional salon and a specialist in this area is important to avoid unpleasant and even painful consequences. Incorrect application may also be associated with itching of the eyelids, perceptible discomfort or pain in the eyes and eyelids.
Contraindications for sticking fake eyelashes include eye inflammation, conjunctivitis and chalazion on the eye. It is also not recommended to apply to people who have an infection of the eye or its immediate vicinity, suffer from excessive loss of natural eyelashes or have very weakened natural eyelashes. A fake eyelash falls out together with a natural one within the life cycle and hair growth.
