Quick And Easy False Eyelash Application

Quick and Easy False Eyelash Application

I’m sure we can all relate to that feeling of false lash rage setting in when applying false eyelashes…


As a false lash lover and wearer for many years, I have had my fair share of application woes! After spending quite some time experimenting, I have found THE BEST lash application technique, and I want to share it with you…

 Let’s jump in and get on the path to quicker, easier lash application… 

Minus the rage 😉


If you’re using a new set of lashes for the first time, you’ll need to measure and trim them before application to make sure they fit your eye perfectly.

To do this, simply place them on top of your natural lash line to see how much you will need to trim, then snip the end of the false lash as needed.

I know that measuring lashes can sometimes be a frustrating process in itself! As the lashes your probably used to, tend not to be very flexible! This makes it tricky to actually see where the lash will sit when glued on…

I designed my MeaganEllise lashes to be flexible and easy to mould around your eye.

Eliminating this problem for good!

But, If you haven’t ‘treated yo-self’ to a set of my lashes yet, I have a few tricks for troubleshooting stiff lashes that are hard to deal with in another post coming soon!

After measuring and trimming, It’s time to apply a small amount of lash adhesive to the lash band…

I like to do this just before applying mascara to my eye, purely just to save time and so I don’t have to sit and wait for my adhesive to dry…

 – Kinda lazy… But also kinda brilliant. 😜

Now to apply a light coat of mascara to your natural eyelashes. Apply to the same eye that you’ll be applying your first false lash to.

Keep hold of the false lash that your glue is already applied to, in the other hand while you are applying your mascara…

My lash adhesive is super-fast drying (30seconds to a minute!). So once you have applied your mascara, your lash should be ready for application…

✴ SIDE NOTE: I’m in sunny Brisbane, so you may lean towards the 1 minute mark if you’re in a colder climate! If you are using another brand of lash adhesive, wait at least 1- 2 minutes before applying your lashes. This ensures the adhesive is slightly tacky before applying.

Okay, prep is all done! Time to whack these falsies on…

Hold the end of the false lash in-between your finger and thumb, close to the base of the lash.

Place the inner corner of the lash down first, using a gentle dragging motion to place the rest just above/against your natural lash line. 

✔️ Lash-Rage Cure TIP: After placing the lash, blink a couple times to see if you feel false lash on the inner corner of your eye. If you do, gently grab the end of the lash and drag it out a little further.

This will avoid you being out and about, having a great ol’ time and constantly feeling your lash irritating your eye by hitting the inner corner…

Because that shit is just so. damn. frustrating! 😭


When lash is in place, I like to gently press the lash in and up with your fingertips to ensure it’s on securely. Then repeat the process to the other side to complete your look.

And your done and dusted! 

I hope you have picked up some juicy hacks to help overcome your application rage…

LOVEEEEEE LOVE LOVE my MeaganEllise Lashes!
At first I was a little skeptical, I doubted anyone could provide lashes that feel so light that it feels like you’re wearing nothing. Nor could they provide a lash that didn’t come unglued half way through your day. But much to my delight – my MeaganEllise Lashes lived up to all their promises. 16 hours in, and they hadnt budged! I’m a mum of 2 young kids, so time to worry about myself is of the essence but it only takes an extra 2 minutes in my morning routine to apply lashes that give me confidence all day long. Every one comments on how lovely they are. I’m a customer for life! – Genevieve

You can thank me later! 😉
