How to Put on Falsies

Putting on false eyelashes can be hard if you’re a beginner, or even if you’re a seasoned lash expert. Strip lashes come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors, and each type of lash has a different kind of band and glue that you should use, making the whole process pretty confusing.


If you need help applying your falsies, you’re in the right place!

What are “Falsies?”

False eyelashes, AKA ‘falsies,’ are little hairs that mimic eyelashes that are attached to a thin, usually clear or black plastic strip that allows you to put on a whole new array of eyelashes in just a few movements. Falsies come in different patterns from thick, cluster lashes to thin, natural lashes.


You can also get individual lash hairs to position them where you want on your lash line, but this is a much longer and grueling process that takes 10x as long as regular falsies.

So, How do I Put Them On?

First of all, you’re going to need a few supplies:

  • Your fake eyelashes, obviously
  • Eyelash glue, preferably black and waterproof
  • Scissors
  • Eyelash curler
  • Eyelash applicators (optional, you can use your fingers if it’s easier)
  • Eyeliner



  1. Prep your natural lashes by removing any sort of makeup that you haven’t taken off, making sure they’re nice and clean.
  2. Curl your eyelashes with the eyelash curler
  3. Lay one of the lashes across your lash line to make sure the band is not too long for your eyes. Cut off any extra if necessary and repeat with the other lash.
  4. Take your lash glue and place a thin line of it across both lash bands. Wait for about 30 seconds for the glue to get tacky.
  5. Using your lash applicators or your fingers, position the lash in the middle of your lash line, gently pressing. Do not stick the lash onto your eyelid.
  6. Press both of the corners of the lash to the outer and inner corners of your lash line, making sure that the glue is bonding and the lash isn’t lifting anywhere.
  7. Wait for the glue to finish curing.
  8. Take your eyelash curler and curl your natural lashes with the falsies on top to blend
  9. Put some eyeliner over the lash band to prevent any of the glue from peeking out and making the lash look more seamless.


Great, Thanks! Anything Else I Should Know?

Lashes can be a fun way to up any of your makeup looks without spending a lot of time on them. It can take a little bit of practice to get the hang of it, but once you’ve figured out what works for you, you’ll be applying your lashes like a pro!


Most falsies are reusable but require proper care. Make sure to clean them frequently to prevent makeup and glue buildup that can give you crusty lashes. Be gentle with them! Don’t fold or pull on the hairs.
