Step one: Start by curling your lashes with an eyelash curler to create a solid base for the magnets to stick to.
Step two: Apply a coat of mascara to give your natural lashes an added level of wow on their own. The reason is that you want to have that thickness of your natural lash, and then that furry, light, soft, doe-eyed look with your false lash, so when you connect them together it looks more realistic. Make sure you never apply mascara directly to your magnetic lashes, because not only will it wind up looking clumpy and strange, but it will destroy them for any future use.
Step three: Apply the magnetic lashes. This part can be a little tricky at first, but gets easier and easier every time you try it. Start by holding the edges of the magnetic lash and rolling them slightly into a rainbow shape in order to create a natural curve in the lash before you put it on your lid.
- With your fingers: Place one fake lash on top of your natural eyelashes, as close to the lash line as possible. Then, take the bottom part and place it underneath your lash, and the magnets should click together. Repeat the process on your bottom lashes and on the other eye.
- With a lash applicator: "You take the top lash first and you put it on the lash applicator... then you take the bottom lash that goes underneath the top lash and you put that on the bottom of the applicator, then you bring them as close to the lash line as possible and then you just drop it and it clicks together," says Brooke. "It's so, so easy, and as long as you go as close to the lash line as possible, you're good."
