Struggling to Apply Your Falsies? Here's How to Apply Magnetic Lashes Instead

Updated 01/08/19

If you went to the cinema to see a film on false lashes, it would probably be called The Haves and The Haves Not. There are two distinct camps of lash wearers: those who are able to effortlessly apply false lashes in an instant, and those who just can't. The advice for easy application is usually either to practice or to invite some tweezers to the party.

Our rallying cries have been heard, as we now have magnetic lashes, which, in theory, should ease any false lash woes. But if you've got a pair of magnetic lashes at home and think that what they lack in glue they make up for in complication, we've got you covered. Head below for your step-by-step guide to applying magnetic lashes.

Step One

Get all of your tools together, as magnetic lashes require you to move quickly. You'll just need a magnifying mirror at hand, some magnetic lashes and your fingers.

Use your index finger and thumb to pick up the first upper lash. 

Step Three

Looking down into a mirror, place the upper lash as close to your lash line as possible. This is probably the most important step, as you want the upper magnetic lash and lower magnetic lash to sandwich your natural lashes as close as possible.

Step Four

Get the lower lash and place beneath your natural lash line (again as close as possible to your lash line), sandwiching them together. This step needs some patience and experimenting to get the lash in place without shifting the upper one. When you've got a snug fit, the lashes will snap together to create the magnetic bond. You'll feel the magnetism as soon as the upper and lower lashes align.

There you have it! There's no drying time or sticky glue—you just have to work quickly to ensure your upper lash doesn't escape before you pop on the lower lash.
