Preparation 

For best results, there are a few steps you should consider before applying your false eyelashes.

  1. Before applying your falsies, comb them with a spoolie or an eyelash brush. This’ll soften the lash fibres and their band; which will ensure a more natural look once applied… and make securing them to the shape of your eye much easier!
  2. Measure up! Before applying adhesive, measure both strip lashes against your own lash line & eyes. You may find they sit nicely on your eyes – but chances are, you’ll need to cut the lash down slightly to achieve the optimum fit. Measuring up pre-application means you can judge this pretty quickly; making modifications until you’re happy with the shape.

Application

Once your false eyelashes are fully prepped, you can move onto the best bit: applying them!

  1. As a general rule, it’s best to affix falsies after you’ve finished applying your chosen eye makeup. Eyeshadow, mascara and eyeliner should be applied before your lashes are – you can always go over them again to further define your look once the adhesive has dried.
  2. You’ll need a good lash glue to secure your strip lashes in place – make sure you pick a tube up before it comes to wearing your new false lashes.
  3. Apply a thin line of adhesive to the band of your lash & wait approx 30 seconds for it to begin to set. Then gently press the band of the false eyelash strip down to your upper lash line. Tweezers can be a useful tool to help push falsies closer to your natural eyelashes.
  4. Black eyeliner can help fill in any gaps between your lash line and your new falsies. Applying mascara also helps blend your own eyelashes and the strip lashes together; for a more natural finish.
  5. If you experience any complications mid-application: be patient and persevere. You’ll be a lash pro in no time – honest!

Removal

Funky Lash strip lashes can be reused up to 20 times with the correct level of aftercare applied – making them even better value for money!

  1. When it comes to taking your falsies off, it’s advisable to gently apply a little makeup remover at the base of your lashes – just for a few seconds. This helps soften the lash adhesive; making them easier to remove.
  2. Using your fingers or a pair of tweezers, take the outer corner of one strip lash & gently peel it off; away from the skin. Repeat on your other eye.
  3. Once your falsies have been removed, it’s time to clean them so they can be reused. Use a little  makeup remover on the tip of a cotton bud to delicately cleanse all remnants of makeup off; including mascara.
  4. Use your fingers or a pair of fine tweezers to clean both strip lashes of any remaining adhesive; removing all tackiness & stickiness.
  5. Replace your lashes on their tray inside their Funky Lash storage box. This both keeps them safe and helps to maintain their shape for the next time you wear them.
