How to Make Fake Eyelashes in Five Minutes

By Alexis Skye

Do you want a dramatic and glamorous look for your next night out? Create your own fake eyelashes. You will have fun, making them as striking and as sexy as you want. The whole process will take between five and ten minutes; and your flirty lashes will catch the eye of everyone who sees you. The only drawback is, you may want to start wearing these lashes all the time.

False eyelashes may be adorned with crystals, for an ultra glamorous look.

Step 1

Place a line of adhesive on your plastic dish. The line should be as long as you want your fake eyelashes to be: So, the length of one eyelid -- or a little less.

Step 2

Wait for the glue to become tacky.

Step 3

Take your old powder brush. Grab a chunk of bristles from the base of the brush. Cut them off in a straight line. Spread them in your fingers, so they are even, all the way across.

Step 4

Place them on the strip of glue. Press down firmly with your tongue depressor or spatula. Make the eyelashes as thick as you want, by adding more bristles. Continue to cut and press down the hair, until the entire strip of glue is covered.

Step 5

Using your spatula, spread a thin layer of adhesive over the top layer of the bristles. Wait for the latex to dry.

Step 6

Pull the eyelashes off of the plastic. Be gentle.

Step 7

Brush black eyeshadow along the bottom edge, to hide any color leftover from the adhesive.

Step 8

Hold the top of the eyelashes. Trim any parts of the glue that are hanging off. You want the bottom of the lashes to be as even as possible.

Step 9

Take the clear superglue, and place a thin line along the bottom of the lashes to seal them.

Step 10

Hold the bottom half of the eyelashes. Take the scissors, and cut the top half in the design and shape you want, like a diagonal line, or a half moon shape. Think about the length you would like them, as well.

Step 11

Hold the bottom of the eyelashes with the tweezers. Curl the lashes with the curling iron. Hold for twenty to thirty seconds.

Step 12

Spray the eyelashes with the hairspray. Comb through them with the eyelash comb. Spray again.
