MAC cosmetics company is a socially conscious business that includes products that work for all different races and skin types. Their fake eyelash line has 24 different styles of lashes. For a less dramatic look, MAC offers shorter and more natural-shaped lashes. There are many different brands of false eyelashes, but they are applied in the same way. Some lashes are reusable, while some brands won't hold up to removal and reapplication. MAC eyelashes are meant to be reusable, so long as you follow removal and storage instructions.

Items you will need

  • Scissors

How to Apply MAC False Eyelashes

Step 1

Decide what look you want. If you are going for a more dramatic or a unique look, go with a fake lash that is longer, wispy or overlapping. For a more natural look, go with short- to medium-link lashes that don't have large curves or overlapping.

Step 2

Use the eyelash curler to curl your real lashes. This makes the fake lashes look better and easier to apply. It isn't absolutely necessary to curl your lashes, but your results will be better if you do.

Step 3

Use the tweezers to gently pull the lashes from the container. Make sure not to tear or twist the lashes.

Step 4

Put a thin line of eyelash adhesive along the base of the false lashes. Use your fingers to press and hold the base to your natural lash line. If the lashes are too long, remove them from your eyelid and trim them to the desired length before reapplying them. Repeat the process to apply your other eyelash set.

Step 5

Use liquid eyeliner or mascara to blend your natural lashes with the false ones. Eyeliner or eye shadow should be applied along the base line of the false eyelashes. Mascara can blend the two sets of lashes together to give them a more natural appearance.


  • To avoid damaging your fake lashes when removing them, apply an eye makeup remover to the glue to loosen it. Water can be used if you don't have makeup remover. Gently pull the lashes off and store them in the container they came in. By keeping them in the curved shape they came in, they will be easier to apply next time. They are also more likely to retain shape and not be damaged.


  • Some eyelash adhesives contain latex, so if you have a latex allergy, make sure you get a latex-free adhesive.
