I’m not kidding you, I’ve probably bought and tested 25 different types of lashes, magnetic and glue strips, in the last week. I recently started to become allergic to my lash extensions so I had to find a new solution QUICK.
I am THE WORST at applying strip lashes with glue. I don’t know what it is, but I CAN’T do it. I don’t have the coordination and I hate how they feel. I knew my only option was to get the magnetic lashes to work, but they were impossible too. I tried every brand on the market. Getting the magnets to attach close enough to your eyelid and look right was impossible for me.
I tried magnetic eyeliner, but it was a pretty weak hold. I couldn’t get them to hold very long.
BUT, I finally figured it out. I came up with a way to make it work with a few different techniques combined.
Supplies: Magnetic eyeliner (I used MoxieLash’s), lash glue, magnetic lash strips (preferably with 3-5 magnets per lash, mascara.
To Apply Them: Start by applying a thin strip of lash glue along your lash line on your top eyelid. Wait until it’s tacky. Then, apply a strip of magnetic eyeliner. Then, start at the outer corner of your eye and let the magnetic lash click into place along your lash line, all the way to the corner of your eye. Then, apply a light coat of mascara to blend the lashes with your natural lashes. They’ll also add to the hold of the fake lashes. THATS IT! It’s a 1 minute process, SO EASY and the lashes won’t move ALL DAY. The magnetic eyeliner keep the lashes in place and the tacky glue underneath adds extra hold. The mascara blends them and also adds extra hold. I don’t even feel them on and they look PERFECT.
I used these Ardell lashes but you can use any brand of magnetic lashes you’d like.
