QUICK GUIDE: MASCARA WITH FALSE EYELASHES - THE DO’S AND DON’TS
There are a few myths about false eyelashes and mascara. Many people believe that the two products should not be used together, implying that you must pick one or the other. When utilized correctly, however, mascara and false eyelashes can complement each other; therefore, here are some do's and don'ts for how to properly use them.
Although they can be worn together, applying significant mascara to your favorite lashes might speed up their deterioration.
So what is mascara, and what is it designed to do?
What was mascara designed to do?
Mascara is designed to add volume and length to natural lashes. It can also be used to darken lashes and make them look more defined. When used with false eyelashes, mascara can help to make the falsies look more realistic and natural.
What are the benefits of applying mascara to false lashes?
Mascara can help your false lashes blend into your natural lash line when applied correctly. Mascara also gives your false eyelashes more bulk and appearance of fullness that will make them look longer than they really are.
Mascaras come in different formulas: waterproof formula, washable formula, and non-waterproof formula.
What type of mascara should you use?
It all depends on your preference. Regardless of the type of mascara you choose, it is best to use lash glue made explicitly for false eyelashes so they don't fall off or irritate your eyes.
What were false eyelashes designed for?
False eyelashes were initially designed to add length and volume to natural lashes. They can also be used to darken lashes and make them look more defined. They bring attention to the iris of your eye, making it darker, which signals more attractive to others. With 3d lashes, they have a lot of layers already, which should be considered before applying mascara.
Should you combine the lashes and mascara together? that's up to you we will just tell you the do's and don'ts
False Eyelashes Are a Must: Do's and Don'ts of Using Mascara with False Eyelashes
- Before putting on fake eyelashes, it is suggested that you use one thin coat of mascara on your natural lashes. This helps the falsies to adhere more readily to your natural lashes and provides a smoother transition.
- Once you've finished your look with false lashes, apply mascara to your lower natural lashes, as usual, to finish and add more definition for a wide-eyed effect. Alternatively, you may wear it under your real lashes.
- Make sure to give your lashes time to dry after applying mascara on top of them in order for them to last longer, and wet, smudged mascara is not a good look; no one wants panda eyes!
Don'ts of Mascara with False Eyelashes:
- Waterproof mascara is designed to stay put all day, and removing it requires a lot of effort. To remove any residue, you must really scrub hard at the false lashes. This can harm your fake eyelashes, making them unusable for re-wear.
- Thick mascara is not recommended. It's difficult to remove thick mascara from your false lashes. It may make your lashes appear clumpy, and you may not be able to get the effect you desire!
We understand that applying mascara to falsies is a personal choice. However, we never advise customers to apply mascara directly on to false eyelashes because this may harm the lashes (particularly more delicate models) and reduce their reusability. It can also compromise the look of the falsies, causing the lashes to clump together.
If you think about it, removing your false eyelashes is similar to removing your actual lashes. When it comes to removing your falsies and mascara, gently peel them off first; then go on to remove your eye makeup, as usual, using a cleanser or eye makeup remover of your choice.
That's all there is to it! There's no need to say goodbye to your mascara wand in favor of falsies, or vice versa. If you apply them correctly, both lashes and mascara may be applied for increased drama!
