I am a makeup artist and have been asked this question with so many different variations. It is important to consider what you are getting in your beauty package before buying it because fake lashes can break the bank if they aren’t the right fit for your eye shape or anatomy.

Although some may argue that false eyelashes are just cosmetic, they enhance one’s appearance by opening their eyes and giving them more depth. But, of course, they also make everything else on your face look better.

As a makeup artist, I wanted to share with you the best ways to apply mascara on false lashes and some of my favourite brands that are safe for everyday use.

How do you apply mascara to fake lashes?

You can apply mascara to fake lashes in two ways: wet or dry. Wet applications are more forgiving and can be applied quickly, while dry applications are ideal for creating a strong, defined line. When applying mascara to fake lashes, always follow these steps:

1) Apply a small amount of mascara to your fingertips.

2) Gently press the tips of your fingers into each individual lash.

3) Brush the tip of your finger across the entire lash surface, starting at the root and moving toward the tip.

4) Repeat this step until you have covered every lash with mascara.

5) Use the brush to sweep away excess mascara.

6) If necessary, use an eye primer to ensure that your lashes stay moisturized throughout the day.

7) To keep your lashes looking their best, wash your face regularly and avoid touching your eyes with dirty hands.

What are the benefits of using mascara on fake lashes?

When you are wearing false eyelashes, mascara can be a great way to enhance your look. It can make your lashes look fuller and longer, and it can also add some color. However, you need to be careful about the type of mascara you use, as it can easily damage your lash extensions in a wink.

To get the best results from your mascara, use malachite stones as a guide. Hold them against your lashes while you apply the mascara. This will help keep the application even and avoid clumps.

If your eyebrows are threaded, it is okay to ask if it hurts. The process usually involves discomfort or pain, but most people find it worth it. House of Lashes x Sephora Collection Multidimensional Prism Lashes are full and long and won’t cause any pain during threading.

How does mascara help to extend the life of fake lashes?

Mascara helps to extend the life of false lashes by coating them in a waterproof film. This film protects them from sweat, water, and tears. It also makes removing false lashes easier without damaging the real ones. Mascara can be used multiple times before the waterproof film wears off and false lashes start to come off easily.

What are the best mascaras for fake lashes?

Mascara is a key part of any makeup look, and it’s especially important when you’re wearing fake lashes. However, not all mascaras are created equal- some are better for natural lashes, while others are better for extensions.

There are many different types of mascaras available. Some are waterproof; some are not. Others contain ingredients such as vitamin E and antioxidants. When choosing a mascara, make sure that it contains both an oil-free and silicone-based formula. These formulas will help prevent clumping.

Fiber mascaras are a great option if you’re looking for a mascara that will add length and volume to your natural eyelashes. They can be a bit difficult to remove, but they work well on natural lashes. However, fiber mascaras should not be used on lash extensions- they can damage the extensions and make them less likely to stay in place.

Finally, if you want something that will last longer than regular mascara, try using falsies instead. 

How do I know if my lash extensions are staying in place?

If you notice that your lash extensions aren’t staying in place, chances are they weren’t properly glued into place. Make sure that you check the back of your head before removing your extensions. If they aren’t securely attached, you should remove them immediately. Otherwise, wait 24 hours and gently tug on the extension to see if it comes loose. If it does, simply reattach it.

If you think that your lash extensions might fall out, you should consider having them professionally removed. Lash extensions are meant to be temporary, but sometimes they become detached due to improper gluing. Contact your lash artist immediately if you notice any signs of detachment.

What are people’s most common mistakes when applying mascara to fake lashes?

The first thing to remember when applying mascara to fake eyelashes is to apply it to both sides of each individual lash. If you miss one side, it will appear uneven. Also, ensure that you apply mascara evenly across the entire area where the extension sits. If there is too much mascara applied in one spot, it may leave the extension looking lopsided.

Next, take care to avoid getting mascara on your real lashes. This could cause problems later on. Finally, don’t forget to clean off your makeup brushes after each application.

How can you avoid damage to your lashes when applying mascara?

Using a soft brush is the best way to avoid damaging your lashes. A wide tooth comb works well, too. Avoid using a stiff or hard brush since this can scratch the surface of your lashes.

Also, never rub your eyes with mascara. Instead, gently dab the excess mascara onto a tissue and then dispose of it.

When applying mascara to fake lashes, apply it only to the top half of the lashes. The bottom half of the lash should remain bare.

When using mascara on fake lashes, ensure you don’t get any mascara on your real lashes, especially around your eye crease.

Next, wipe away excess mascara using a tissue. For best results, try applying a few coats of eye makeup remover onto your fingertips first. Then, wipe away the remaining mascara by pressing your fingers against the area around your eyes.

How to get rid of mascara smudges?
