Tutorial: How to Modify False Lashes for Asian Eyes

A lot of false lashes aren't designed for my smaller and differently shaped Asian eyes, so this is how I modify them for my eyes. The pic of the original lashes (Esqido's Illumina) on my eyes doesn't look so bad here, but zoomed out, they look like two fuzzy caterpillars have latched on to my eyes. Not a flattering look at all.

First of all, I measure how much of the lashes I need to cut off. For Asian eyes, I find that letting the lashes cover your entire lash line often ends up looking odd (think lashes pointing in weird directions thanks to how your lids bend them), and it's sometimes even uncomfortable. I personally find it most comfortable and flattering for my eyes, to only cover 2/3s of my lashline.

So after you've cut your lashes, you may end up with a pretty sizable chunk left behind. What I normally do with this is that I attach it with a lash glue to the outer edge of my lashes, so that its thicker in the outer corners. Make sure the longer lashes are on the outer edge. I also personally like to nudge the 2nd lash layer to the side, so that the bottom and top lashes aren't perfectly overlapping each other —its looks fuller and more natural that way!


  1. I need to do this! Falsies are a must for burlesque, but I always feel like they weigh my eyes down and make them droopier. Hopefully this will help.

    Do you have any tips for not looking like you have two layers of eyelashes? (Mine slant downward no matter how much I try to curl them.)

    1. Have you tried heated eyelash curlers? They work for me! Most of the time, I just ignore my natural lashes...people don't really notice :P
