So dig up your lash glue, grab a mirror and get ready to rock a Katy Perry-like flutter!

HOW TO APPLY FALSE LASHES LIKE A PRO

FIND YOUR PERFECT LASH

The first step in achieving the perfect false lash look is to find your perfect lash. You can find a variety of styles that go from demure and natural to full-on drama. Opt for lashes that include shorter and longer strands in the same lash for a more natural look – and don't forget: You can cut as needed!

USE A LASH CURLER

Before you apply your lashes, use a lash curler to ensure your falsies sit properly. Get as close to the root of the lashes as possible. For maximum results, curl the lashes twice in the same place or use the heat from a blow dryer to heat up the curler before curling your lashes.

APPLY MASCARA

Before applying your falsies (but after curling) apply mascara. If you have super long lashes, you can do mascara after the fake lashes, but most prefer to do it right after curling the lashes so that it holds the curl in place.

Keep looking down while the mascara is drying so you don't dot your lids with mascara!

FIGURE OUT PLACEMENT

Before you glue the lashes, it's important to get an idea of placement by doing a test on your lids. Once you know where you want to place the lash, trim any edges to make the false lashes fit the base of the eyelid.

APPLY GLUE

Next up is applying the glue to your lashes. Apply more glue on the outer corners of the lashes, working in toward the center. The key to doing lashes is giving yourself drying time for the glue. You want the glue to get a little sticky before applying it to your own eye. Drying time should be about a minute to a minute and a half for it to get tacky.

USE TWEEZERS

Tweezers will help to really place the lash properly. You'll get more precision with the tweezers as opposed to your fingers. Once you've placed the lashes, you can adjust them quickly while the glue is still a little tacky.

FILL IN EMPTY SPACES

If you feel like you have any empty spaces between your lash line and the falsies, go in with a black liquid eyeliner to cover them up. Use this time to also clean up any excess glue that may be sticking around the lashes!

APPLY MORE MASCARA

Once the lashes are in place, apply mascara at the root to fuse the false lashes with your real lashes so there is no space. Don't apply mascara to the tips of the false lashes, though, since that can negate the feathery feeling of the lashes.
