How to Apply Rhinestone and Glitter False Eyelashes (4 Tips to Save Your Life)

Everybody knows that false eyelashes aren’t the easiest things to learn to apply. Slap some rhinestones or a bunch of glitter on those babies and you’ve got a much bigger problem on your hands. As gorgeous as they may be, putting rhinestone lashes or glitter lashes on can be a daunting task – especially if you’re not used to wearing lashes or trying to help a young dancer put them on right before a performance (we know you’re reading this, dance moms!).how to wear false eyelashes, how to wear rhinestone eyelashes, how to wear glitter eyelashes, how to apply false fake eyelashes, apply rhinestone diamond eyelashes, how to make fake eyelashes comfortable to wear

So here are 4 helpful tips to help you make your dazzling rhinestone or glitter eyelashes feel so comfortable, you’ll hardly know you’re wearing them while you dance the night away!

 

 

  1. Measure & Trim the Ends

measure lashes, how to wear false eyelashes, how to wear rhinestone eyelashes, how to wear glitter eyelashesThe first thing you always want to do before applying any false lash (rhinestone or not) is to make sure they fit your eye! Before putting glue on, lay the false eyelashes along your lash line, making sure not to position it too close to the inner corner. If the outer corner is extending past your eye, trim it off, remembering to always trim from the outer corner.trim false eyelashes, how to wear false eyelashes, how to wear rhinestone eyelashes, how to wear glitter eyelashes, how to apply false fake eyelashes, apply rhinestone diamond eyelashesIMPORTANT: always round out the cut ends. Otherwise, you’ll be left with a very sharp corner that will stab you every time you blink. Ouch! measure lashes, how to wear false eyelashes, how to wear rhinestone eyelashes, how to wear glitter eyelashes, how to apply false fake eyelashes, apply rhinestone diamond eyelashes
Tip: peel off a stone (I know, I know, such a waste) to make rounding off the edges easier to do.

 

 

2. Curl your lashes from the lash band
If you want to curl your false lashes, do it BEFORE applying them, and curl from back (the band) instead of approaching from the front (tips) as you normally would. You’ll find it a lot easier and quicker to do this vs. the traditional way. curl lashes, how to curl false eyelashes, how to curl diamond fake eyelashes, how to curl rhinestone eyelashes, how to curl glitter eyelashes, how to wear false eyelashes, how to wear rhinestone eyelashes, how to wear glitter eyelashes, how to apply false fake eyelashes, apply rhinestone diamond eyelashes

 

 

3. Wear a base lash
We always recommend wearing a base lash (any dense, regular strip lash) with rhinestone or glitter lashes. These act as a shelf to prevent your rhinestone lashes from drooping, and the extra volume makes your eyes look more openwear a base lash, how to wear false eyelashes, how to wear rhinestone eyelashes, how to wear glitter eyelashes, how to apply false fake eyelashes, apply rhinestone diamond eyelashesI’m wearing #696 Black by Elegant Lashes as my base lash. I chose this because it’s short in length but very full and dense.

 

 

4. Apply lashes close to or on your crease – NOT the lash line.
Rhinestone lashes and glitter lashes have a much thicker lash band than human hair lashes due to all the embellishments on them. That means you need to use leverage and science (hooray!) to make your lashes work for you.how to wear false eyelashes, how to wear rhinestone eyelashes, how to wear glitter eyelashes, how to apply false fake eyelashes, apply rhinestone diamond eyelashes, how to make fake eyelashes comfortable to wear
Instead of applying lashes on your lash line, place them closer to your crease and away from the base lash you have on. This helps take significant weight off your lids and makes your eyes look much more open.

I’ll be the first to tell you that applying lashes on your crease is NOT easy. It takes a tons of practice, but OH, is it worth it. You won’t believe how much lighter they’ll feel.
Tip: use clear glue (since it hides mistakes better) and try your best not to blink while the glue sets.

How to Apply Bottom / Under / Lower False Eyelashes

Whether it’s a night out with the girls or a special date with a special someone, the next time you’re all dolled up for the night, ask yourself this question: Did you forget your undies?

how to apply bottom under lower false fake eyelashes, elegant lashes, bottom false eyelashes, lower false eyelashes, false fake eyelashes for bottom, red hair with bangs, long red hair, shyne bonnie

Of course, we’re talking about Under Lashes.  You know, false eyelashes that you wear on the lower lash line? Although the correct manufacturer term is under lashes (which is why some of our bottom/under/lower lashes have a “U” after the number), most of you probably know them as bottom lashes or lower lashes. And yes, we’ve definitely noticed a rise in popularity in these little peep enhancers.

Being your friendly neighborhood lash geniuses, we went right ahead and created a video for you to watch so you can learn how to apply under lashes yourself. If you’d prefer reading and looking at diagrams, then scroll right on past the video.

Just like with upper lashes, there are two main types of lashes you can use to enhance your lower lash line: strip lashes or individual/piece-y lashes. If you’ve never tried under lashes before, start with individual lashes or piece-y lashes like our M515 lashes. They may seem tricky and intimidating at first, but because they’re applied one by one (as opposed to secured along a single strip), you have much greater control over where they land, how many to apply, what overall look you want to create, etc. Basically, not only are piece-y/individual lashes easier to wear, they’re also completely customizable!how to apply bottom under lower false fake eyelashes, elegant lashes, bottom false eyelashes, lower false eyelashes, false fake eyelashes for bottom

To apply piece-y lashes, you’ll need:

  •  a pair of tweezers
  • some strip lash glue (I’m suggesting strip lash glue since it’s gentler on the eyes than semi-permanent eyelash glue and more beginner-friendly)
  • individual lashes of your choice

1) Place a dot of glue onto the trayhow to apply bottom under lower false fake eyelashes, elegant lashes, bottom false eyelashes, lower false eyelashes, false fake eyelashes for bottom

This will make application easier since your access to your glue is right at your fingertips (literally).

2) Bend the tray so lashes are easier to grab.

This step is not necessary for longer lengths. Just remember to always grab lashes as close to the knot as possible!

3) Remove lashes from as close to the base as possible. how to apply bottom under lower false fake eyelashes, elegant lashes, bottom false eyelashes, lower false eyelashes, false fake eyelashes for bottom

You always want to grab lashes from as close to the base (or knot) as possible. This will ensure that their shape is in tact and no hairs are pulled off during removal.

4) Start at the outer corner of your eye. how to apply bottom under lower false fake eyelashes, elegant lashes, bottom false eyelashes, lower false eyelashes, false fake eyelashes for bottom , red hair, eyelash extensions

Dip your lash into the dot of glue and make sure the curve of the lash is DOWNWARDS (like your natural lower lashes are). Snuggle the flare lash either directly under or in between your natural lashes.

5) Work your way in until you have your desired look. how to apply bottom under lower false fake eyelashes, elegant lashes, bottom false eyelashes, lower false eyelashes, false fake eyelashes for bottom

I opted to use the same length for the entire length of my eye, but most people like to use longer lengths on the outer corner and shorter lengths toward the inner corner. Just keep adding lashes until you reach your desired look. You can just do the outer third of your eye, the entire lower lash line (like I did), super dense & thick, or just light and natural – it’s all up to you! how to apply bottom under lower false fake eyelashes, elegant lashes, bottom false eyelashes, lower false eyelashes, false fake eyelashes for bottom

Now you’re ready to go out. I love how under lashes pulled my night-out look together. <3

 

If you want something that’s a little more subtle but still packs a punch, try M515 lashes from our Black Velvet collection. This style is actually my current obsession since it tapers to a point at the end (which makes it look more natural) but I can space it apart to give myself a doe-eyed and dolly look. how to apply bottom under lower false fake eyelashes, elegant lashes, bottom false eyelashes, lower false eyelashes, false fake eyelashes for bottom

I absolutely LOVE this under lash and highly recommend it to everybody – especially if you’re new to under lashes! They’re basically tiny little strip lashes that you apply one by one, but they’re not as much work as individual flare lashes. It’s like the best of both worlds! You can use all six pieces or just a few to achieve the look you want. Snuggle them under your natural lashes and be prepared to fall in love! <3

To apply Strip Lashes:

1) Bend the lash band to create a nice curve. how to apply bottom under lower false fake eyelashes, elegant lashes, bottom false eyelashes, lower false eyelashes, false fake eyelashes for bottom

Under lashes are hard enough to apply. The more curved your lash band is, the easier it is to apply. When they’re sticking up at the ends because you forgot to round them out, it’s a real hassle. Trust me on this one.

2) Apply a THIN strip of glue. how to apply bottom under lower false fake eyelashes, elegant lashes, bottom false eyelashes, lower false eyelashes, false fake eyelashes for bottom

Using too much glue will result in looking like you have some  kind of colony of eye boogers hanging around on your lower lashes. NOT a good look.

3) Wiggle your lashes UNDER your natural ones.  how to apply bottom under lower false fake eyelashes, elegant lashes, bottom false eyelashes, lower false eyelashes, false fake eyelashes for bottom

It’s also best to have short nails to do this. (Or tweezers if you can’t live without your claws.) If you have super shaky, unsteady hands, check out Tip #3 in this article. It’ll help a TON and make lash application so much more manageable. Once your lashes are on, make sure you press your lashes into your lash line to secure them. 

4) Push lashes upward before they dry.  how to apply bottom under lower false fake eyelashes, elegant lashes, bottom false eyelashes, lower false eyelashes, false fake eyelashes for bottom

Nobody’s lower lashes are naturally stick straight and point straight downward – even if their upper lashes do. I have a serious case of elephant eyelash syndrome (you know, super straight lashes that point straight down). But even so, my lower lashes still have a curve to them. If you want your lower lashes to look natural, make sure you give them a little lift by pushing them upwards with your finger before the glue dries. This ensures that your under lashes don’t just “fall,” and they simulate natural lashes as much as possible. A much longer, thicker, fuller version of your natural lashes, of course. 😉

Are False Eyelashes Waterproof?

fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunnyNow that summer is in full swing, you may be wondering if it’s possible to wear your favorite lashes to the beach or pool without having them fall off. We know eyelash extensions applied with individual lash adhesive will stay on for sure. They’re supposed to stay on for weeks – even months – at a time. But not everyone has the money or time for that. And if you’re like me, you also won’t want to commit to it, either.false eyelashes, false eyelash glue, fake false eyelash adhesive, individual eyelash glue adhesive, semi permanent eyelash glue adhesive, difference between strip lash glue and individual lash glue

By the way, if you didn’t know that tidbit about individual lash adhesives, you can read all about them here. Or by clicking on that picture over there. Either works.

 

So is there hope for those who can’t leave the house without their falsies?

Can you wear fake eyelashes to the beach or pool and have them stay on? Is it really possible to waterproof false lashes?

Let’s find out in my little experiment!

Just so you know, all lashes were applied with clear waterproof strip lash glue. (Skip to our video at the bottom if you don’t want to read!)

Round 1: Strip Lashesfake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

Sunny went with a strip lash style that could easily blend with her natural lashes. Anything with a knotted band is great, so picking up a pair of #213 Black lashes was a no-brainer (which doesn’t explain why she’s holding up a pack of #415 Black lashes in the photo below, but… oh well!)fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

 

Unfortunately, after having buckets of water splashed at her face, the lashes didn’t even last five minutes on her eyes. Water and lashes never make for a pretty combination because moisture will warp the shape and curl of false eyelashes – especially if the lashes are made of 100% human hair.  Moreover, we learned that clear glue turns white when wet – yikes!fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

 

Round 2: Individual (Flare) Lashesfake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

Individual lashes look incredibly natural, so if I were to opt for lashes at a beach or pool, these guys would be my choice. I wore flares in this experiment since I find them easier to use than singles. (I actually tried this experiment with individual single lashes a while back. You can check out what happened to them in this post.)fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny

 

Several buckets of water later, my lashes looked like either someone blew all their boogers on them or a family of lice decided to make my eyelashes their happy home due to the lovely effect of clear glue turning white when wet. They stayed on better than Sunny’s strip lashes did, but they fell off whenever I wiped water from my eyes until I eventually had no more eyelashes left.fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny, individual lashes, flare eyelashes, cluster lashes

Pretty gross, right? Yeah… I think this round fails in more areas than just one.

Okay, I’m thinking maybe it will be a good idea to fuse my natural lashes and individual flare lashes with a coat of waterproof mascara to make sure they don’t budge at all this time. (Oh what, waterproof glue and waterproof mascara? That’s genius.) Seems like the perfect way to waterproof the lashes, right? Let’s see the results after dunking my face in water several times.

But first, let’s admire my hair and how pretty my lashes look before getting wet. I always like putting mascara on my finished flare lash application because nothing screams “My lashes are REAL!” like a set of clumpy-looking mascara-coated lashes. (You know it’s true. Just look at the photo below. You would never guess those aren’t my real eyelashes, right?)fake false eyelashes, are false eyelashes waterproof, summer makeup, beach pool makeup, waterproof makeup, waterproof mascara, waterproof eyelashes, can you wear fake false eyelashes to the beach pool swimming, elegant lashes, bonnie sunny lee, sunny bonnie lee, shyne bonnie sunny, individual lashes, flare eyelashes, cluster lashes, waterproof mascara, mascara on with false eyelashes, can you put mascara on false fake eyelashes, red hair, long red hair

Also note, not a trace of white glue/boogers/wannabe eyelash lice to be seen on my eyes.

… and it looks like the supposed dynamic duo of waterproof glue + waterproof mascara didn’t work after all. I’ll give credit where credit is due: they definitely stayed on longer than the first two rounds. However, I still had that gross booger/lice-looking business happening on my eyelashes and after several more splashes of water, my perfectly applied lashes started to get loose and eventually fell off.
