All About Cashmere LashesWith the six different lash styles in this launch, there is truly something for everyone. For my first two sets, I chose the Doheny and Camden. My style is more of a natural, wispy false lash, and both of these absolutely nailed it. I could hardly believe how natural yet absolutely stunning they were! Check out the below graphic for a bit about each set. Cashmere's false lashes range from the full-bodied and dramatic Brighton, to the wispy yet uber-fluffy Wilshire. Like I said, there's truly something for every lash wearer. When you receive your lashes in the mail they will come adorably packaged in a pretty black bag - so convenient! I'm a sucker for good packaging, and Cashmere did not skimp on the details - the lashes come in a gorgeous pink box to store them in when you're not wearing them.
How To Apply False LashesSo you've selected your lash set, waited patiently for them to arrive - now it's time to flaunt those gorgeous lashes! Next up, I'll teach you how to apply false lashes for a perfectly glamorous look. If you've never worn lashes before, don't be discouraged by your first try - it can take a bit of practice. Once you master how to apply false lashes, I promise you'll be able to almost do it in your sleep. (Need a hairstyle to go along with your new lashes? Check out this one or this one for a fully done-up look!)
1. Unpack Your Lashes.
Carefully peel back the lashes from the case. I prefer to do this from the longer end first, since that's the side you'll be trimming before you apply the false lashes. You can use your fingers or tweezers for this step!
2. Size And Trim.Place the lashes loosely on your lash line to determine if they need trimming. At minimum, you'll want to trim the access strip off (refer to the video to see this done). Some people need to trim more off to fit their eye shape. If you do need to trim more, always do it from the strip side, not the lash side. It's less noticeable, and you won't accidentally trim the actual lashes!
3. Prep Natural Lashes.
Once you've gotten your false lashes measured and trimmed, it's time to apply the glue. If your natural lashes are on the straighter side, you can prep them by using a lash curler. This will help blend your natural lashes with the falsies.
I like to put on a light coat of mascara and letting that dry before applying false lashes - to give them something to hold onto! My natural lashes aren't super thick so I feel this gives the glue something to hold onto.
4. Add Your Glue.
Apply a thin layer of lash glue over the top strip of each lash. Make sure to apply from corner to corner, covering the entire band. I like to do a bit extra on the inner and outer corner as well.
Then we have possibly the most crucial step in how to apply false lashes: wait and let the glue get tacky. Applying false lashes with wet glue is be a nightmare because it won't hold onto anything! So give it thirty to sixty seconds to dry a bit before moving on to the next step.While your glue is drying you can loosen up the lash - making it more flexible and easy to apply - by wiggling it from corner to corner. This will make sure it has that rounded shape to fit your eye.
