HOW TO APPLY - MidSize Eyes Magnetic Lashes (Sandwich System)
- Before removing the eyelashes from the box, please read all the instructions below at least once to understand the application process.
- While Lash’d Up magnetic eyelashes are the better than other magnetic eyelashes on the market, magnetic eyelashes in general, including Lash’d Up, are Not meant to be “easier” or “quicker” to apply compared to glue eyelashes, especially for the first application. They are offered as an alternative to glue eyelashes for those who are allergic or simply dislike the mess glue creates. For some they may be a good alternative, for others not. Remember that you will be able to see magnets if you look closely and are looking for them, just like you will be able to see somebody is wearing glue fake eyelashes if you look closely. Also, as with glue lashes, you will feel like you are wearing something on your eyes. We advise to do your first try when you have some free time and Not to wait until the day of an event to try them on for the first time.
- If you are planning to apply makeup, it is advised to apply eyelashes after finishing all makeup application.
- Before application, curl your natural lashes and apply some mascara to them. This gives some texture for the magnets to grip, especially with our 3mm bottom pieces. Do not apply mascara to the false lashes as this will reduce their lifespan. Curling your lashes is especially recommended for our dramatic version of lashes to avoid the "droopy" look. This step is optional.
- The bottom pieces are small and our 3mm bottom pieces are the most comfortable because they are so small. However, being so small, they are easily lost. Before starting your application, please make sure you choose a place where they won’t get lost when dropped. For this reason we advise doing so sitting at a desk with a magnifying mirror or at a large sink with a light-colored towel covering the drain.
- Before taking the lashes out of the box, please wash your hands. Greasy fingers will make application very difficult. While your fingers are the better option for applying magnetic lashes, if you have long nails and cannot apply with your fingers, you may use the plastic tweezers included in the Lash’d Up packaging.
- When taking them out of the package, please avoid tugging on the hairs to avoid damaging them. Instead, pull them out by sticking your nail underneath the magnet and detaching it from the box one magnet at a time. Also, make sure that all the bottom pieces are detached from the full lashes (they may have moved around and magnetized to each other).
- Before application, bend the top lash band to get a nice curve to it so it follows the natural curve of your eyes. You can bend it as much as you need until you get a satisfactory curve. However, do not make too much of a dramatic curve as that will make the lashes stick up in the middle.
- Trimming instructions:
- Take one of the top lash strips in your fingers and visually inspect it closely. With precision scissors, cut any band that’s extending past lash hairs. Careful here; band extending past the magnets is by design and must not be cut at this point; you are only cutting band edges that don’t have hair on them that could poke you. See picture below. Also cut any lash hairs that may be bent that may also poke you. Do this with the rest of the lashes and especially with the small bottom strips. The bottom strips sit very close to your eyes and it is important to cut any hairs that could be poking you.
- If you picked our “Midsize Eyes” lashes, you must either trim the lash band to fit your eyes (small-midsize or small eyes) or if your eyes are midsize, you won’t need to trim them. In most cases though, the lashes need to be trimmed. Take one of the top lashes and position it close to the lashline on the corresponding eye. Remember to place it on the corresponding eye (there are labels on the Storage Case, or if you got them without the case, the lashes on the right are for your left eye and vice versa. Usually the hairs taper down towards the inner corner. If that’s not the case place the lashes on the other eye so that they are now on the correct eye. Now, align the inner edge of the lashes with the inner corner of your lashline. Be careful here; the inner corner of your lashline is where you still have your own natural lash hairs and Not too close to your nose. Magnetic eyelashes stay in place by holding on to your own natural lashes, hence the magnets on the inner corner still need to be positioned where you have lash hairs, and not beyond that.
- Holding the lashes in place, look at the outer corner to judge whether or not they will need to be trimmed. If you have small eyes, one or both edge may need to be trimmed off (but only up to the magnets. Do not cut off the magnets!). If you only need to trim one edge, we recommend starting with the inner corner. If you are unsure, you can trim later: do the application first, see how they feel, if they feel uncomfortable, you can then trim them. Remember with trimming you can always trim more but you cannot take back what’s cut off once it’s been done. So be careful here. Remember with our “Midsize Eyes” lashes trimming options are limited. If your eyes are larger or smaller, then we recommend our “AllSize Eyes” magnetic lashes, which are sold alongside the “Midsize Eyes” ones.
10. Lash’d Up magnetic lashes are designed to have one corner secured at a time. This design makes application easier compared to other brands of magnetic eyelashes which have one full top lash and one full bottom lash that need to be positioned in a way to have all magnets magnetize at the same time. Our design also makes it easier to get them to curve along your lashline and to get them as close to your lashline as possible. Remember that even though our magnetic eyelashes are the best on the market among other magnetic lashes, it doesn’t mean magnetic eyelashes are going to be perfectly aligned to the lashline for your application. Practice will makes application better over time. We will start with the outer corner. Place one of the top lashes on top of your lashes on the corresponding eye. The lashes are curved upwards and the magnets face downwards.
11. Leave it there and take the bottom strip for the outer edge. Find the magnet on the bottom strip; remember when bringing it up that the magnet on the bottom strip should be facing upwards when it magnetizes to the top lash magnet. The lash hairs on the bottom strip are curved upwards. With one hand, position the top lash so that the outer edge of the top lash is aligned with the outer edge of your eyes.
12. Bring the bottom strip up until they are close to the top strip magnet but Not close enough for the magnets to attract yet. Holding the bottom strip still, with the other hand, use your finger to gently press the outer corner of the top lash on your eyelid and at the same time slide that outer corner of the lash a few millimeters upwards on your eyelid (away from your lashline) and hold it there. Now, bring the bottom strip “inwards” towards your eye until it is just about to poke your eye but not yet. At the same time, bring that same bottom strip upwards so that it is touching your lashline underneath your lashes and as close to the lashline as possible. The top lash magnet should be far enough from your lashline so that they are not magnetizing. This will allow the bottom strip to be positioned right underneath your lashline (roots of your lashes). Now with the finger that was pressing on and holding the top lash outer corner away from your lashline, slide that corner downward on the eyelid until it reaches the lashline and the two magnetize. This step is helpful to get the lashes to magnetize as close to your lashline as possible. The positioning of the bottom strip close to the lashline and the sliding of the top lash corner on the eyelid down to the lashline are crucial to achieving the perfect lashline fit. Take your time to re-read and practise this step if getting the lashes close to the lashline is important to you.
13. With the top strip now held by the one corner, repeat this step with the inner corner magnet. Before the inner corner magnetizes in place, make sure the middle section is not sticking up by either gently pulling on the inner corner or by pressing down gently on the middle section before magnetizing.
14. If the middle section still sticks up, try pressing down gently on the middle section to move it into place.
15. Optional: If you got the 3-magnet lashes, connect the middle magnet.
16. If you experience discomfort, one reason could be because your eyelid skin is trapped by the magnet. Gently pull up your eyelids with your fingers while holding down the magnets to release them from the magnets.
17. If the eyelashes are poking you, make sure you followed the “trimming instructions” described earlier. If you already followed the instructions but they are still poking you in the inner corner, we recommend trimming the band in the inner corner up to the magnet (but do not cut off the inner magnet!) and then applying them closer to the outer edge.
18. If you feel the “worm in eye” feeling and wearing all 3 bottom strips, then try removing the middle trip and see how it feels. If you are experiencing this with 2-magnet 7mm strips, please consider trying our 2-magnet 3mm strips.
If you bought our lashes with the Storage case, Spare bottom pcs are included in case you lose any. Remember that bottom lashes are placed underneath your own natural lashes, having the bottom lash band go through the middle section causes discomfort or “worm in eye” feeling because the band is in your eyesight. This is why we recommend our 2-magnet 3mm lashes for comfort. However, we also offer our 3-magnet and 7mm lashes for those who want options.
