What is special about a Lash Applicator?

You may be wondering what is different about a lash applicator in comparison to a pair of classic slanted tweezers, and we’re here to answer your question! Lash Applicators work extremely similarly to tweezers with regards to using them to apply lashes, but instead of featuring a thin tip (targeted more towards hair removal) they boast a specially shaped edge which is curved to carefully and securely hold a lash.

The handles are also spaced out slightly wider to give you much more freedom whilst still maintaining a firm grip of your falsies. The expertly designed tip allows you to position and apply the lash as close to your natural lash line as possible in a few simple seconds. Another great thing about lash applicators is they can be used to apply a range of different false eyelashes from pre glued, to accent lashes and standard strip lashes.

How to use a Lash Applicator:

STEP ONE:

Select a lash applicator that appeals to you, we have plenty on offer on our website ranging in colour and design, however most of them deliver the same results

STEP TWO:

Trim your lashes if necessary then use the applicator to carefully remove a lash from the tray and apply your personal choice of adhesive to the lash band. Remember to wait approximately 45 seconds for the glue to go tacky before applying – unless you’re using the DUO Quick-Set Adhesive which dries in 5!

STEP THREE

Once the lash adhesive has dried slightly, position the false lash in the centre of your lash line with the applicator and press down into place. You can then use the applicator to press down both the inner and outer corner for a secure fit and to achieve a more seamless blend with your natural lashes.
