First, measure the lash strip against your natural lashes and trim any excess length. Then, dip the lash band in glue and wait 15–30 seconds for it to get tacky. Once the adhesive is ready, press the lash strip onto your natural lashes' base and hold it in place for a few seconds until it sets.
About Drag Lashes
Have you ever heard the term 'drag false lashes'? No, don't worry; we are here to help. Drag queen lashes are necessary to achieve the iconic drag look or even a full makeup look.
The fashion for such exaggerated lashes came from drag queens back in the day. A drag queen is an artist who performs gender illusion and can be described as an exaggerated form of femininity. As such, their beauty looks usually include extra long, full eyelashes that flutter with every move they make – and that's what drag lashes are all about!
Drag is Fab
Drag lashes are typically longer, fuller and more dramatic than traditional false eyelashes. They emphasize the eyes and draw attention to them, making them the ideal choice for a bold makeup look. Like traditional falsies, drag queen lash strips come in different lengths and styles, such as butterfly box sets with extra-long lengths, criss-cross styles or fluffy lashes.
Now let's talk about the application. Applying drag queen lashes is easy if you have the right tools. The most essential tool is good-quality lash glue. Latex-based lash adhesives are generally not recommended for drag queens (even imitation queens) because they irritate the skin easily and take a long time to set. Instead, opt for an adhesive explicitly formulated for false eyelashes, such as DUO or Ardell LashGrip.
To apply drag lashes:
- Measure the lash strip against your natural lashes and trim any excess length.
- Dip the lash band in glue and wait 15–30 seconds for it to get tacky.
- Once the adhesive is ready, press the lash strip onto your natural lashes' base and hold it in place for a few seconds until it sets.
To finish off the look, drag eyeliner is a must-have. You'll need an intensely pigmented cream or gel liner to create this signature look. Apply a thick liner line on your upper lash line and smudge a little towards the inner corner. Add winged edges at the outer corners to get a more dramatic look, and make them as long as you want.
