What You’ll Need 
– A pair of false lashes
– Tweezers
– Eyelash glue
– Scissors
– Black card

1.First things first, you’ll need to grab yourself some card (whichever colour match your lashes) , I used black.

2. Start cutting some triangle shapes using the card- make them super pointed at the end, but of different lengths and widths (as pictured). Cut as many or as little as you want.

3. To curl the lashes, take your thumb and index finger with the card in between and run your fingers tightly along each triangle. Once you’ve sufficiently curled them, cover the thicker end in a small amount of eyelash glue and use the tweezers to secure them on the lashes.

4.  It’s up to you how you create a pattern, but I tended to space out the larger, longer lashes and add the smaller lashes in between the gaps.

5. Once all of the card is secure, leave to dry for around half an hour, and you’re done!

    I do love false lashes and wear them quite a bit! However I think these ones would be a little too big for me. Haha. But you rock them and these rocks.

    What a fun, unique look! Honestly, I haven’t worn false lashes since my wedding day hahaha – but I really should branch out and use them again because they are so much fun!
