When to apply false eyelashes...b4 or after make up?!

Morning ladies,

I was just wondering if any of knew how it was supposed to go?! I've never worn them before and bought a two pack of reusable Ruby&Millie lashes yesterday....£14 but both look fab on!! One's more dramtic than the other.

I know you have to put the adhesive on the lashes but would it not be easier to do this after you've done all your make up?! And what about mascara? Do your own lashes first and then put the false ones on....or do you mascara false lashes too?!!!!

As you can tell i really have no any advice would be fab!!

Thanks! x x

    I love false lashes and put them on most Saturday nights. You do all your makeup first including mascara then put the adhesive on the false lashes, leave for bout 30 secs and then aim for you eyelashes then that way you will get as close to the lash line as you can.

    K I had my make up done at mac. 1st she coated the tops of my lashes with mascara then put my lashes on. She did this before she put any make up on me. She also did my eyes before my face. x
  • Maybe i've been doing it wrong all these years but i do my eye make-up but NOT my mascara, apply the false eyelashes [mac are fab!!] then when they are dry i put on my mascara as this helps to blend the false ones with your own making them look all the same rather than being able to see two sets of eyelashes on close inspection....have a play around and see what works best for you. GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN X

    I had a MAC makeover too and what she did was my eye shadow 1st followed by curling your lashes and adding mascara then she applied the false lashes then the eyeliner on top to cover where the false meet the real followed by the rest of your face makeup. Like fairygothmother said to merge them together you can add more mascara to make them look more real.

    I hope this helps.x

    OOh what eyeshadow has been used on you pretty please?
  • jeanieukjeanieuk Posts: 207
    wifey 0908 they are various shades from MAC. really carn't remember the names of them off the top of my head but I am sure if you went and asked what natural colours would suit you they would then pick the ones that suit your skin colour best.
