My First Time using DODO false lashes

False lashes can be intimidating if you aren't sure how to put them on or which style to get. I have always liked the way false lashes look but couldn't find the confidence to take the plunge and put them on myself. If you're unsure about how to put on false lashes, keep reading!

I got a pretty set of lashes from the DODO lashes team (THANKS so much!) and I thought it would be a prefect way to add some glam to my look for a wedding. At first I thought the lashes were way too long. I have always stayed on the conservative side when applying makeup, so this was kind of a big deal for me. Once you find a set of lashes you like, follow these steps:

Step 1: Apply mascara

Curl natural lashes and comb on a coat of mascara, creating a shelf to support the weight of your falsies.

Step 2: Cut to fit

There are many ways to cut your lashes to fit. I trimmed a bit off one of the ends. You can also cut the lash band right down the center to create a large individual lash. It's easier to place than a full lash strip, which can become wonky and weird and asymmetrical.

Step 3: Add adhesive

Trace each lash band, one by one, with a laser-thin line of lash glue and wait a few moments for the adhesive to dry a bit.

Step 4: Put 'em on

Using your fingers, not tweezers, place your extension on the outer corner first, hugging that lash line tight." For an eye-lifting effect, you can place the outer extension slightly above the natural lash line.
I had to try a few times before I got it right but I'm pleased with the results. I'm happy I wore long lashes to the wedding. I got so many compliments! Do you like wearing falsies? Share your tips and tricks, I'd love to hear from you!
