How to Put on Magnetic Lashes How to Put on Magnetic Lashes How to Put on Magnetic Lashes

When it comes to eyelashes, the bigger the better, right? There’s just something about having long, voluminous lashes that instantly transforms any eye makeup look. And while wearing false lashes can certainly give you the drama you crave, they can be tricky to get the hang of. Enter the latest makeup trend: magnetic lashes. They’re basically the answer to all our makeup prayers. Keep reading to find out how to incorporate them into your next makeup look.


Magnetic lashes involve two strips of fake lashes, one for above your real lashes and one for below. The two strips connect via a magnet in order to stay in place. Pretty simple, right? While it may seem like applying magnetic lashes is as easy as 1-2-3, there’s a little more to it. To give magnetic lashes a try, follow our step-by-step tutorial below:

Step #1: Grab your mascara

Just because you’re wearing magnetic lashes doesn’t mean you should ditch your mascara. Just like when applying false lashes, a coat of mascara will help your natural lashes blend better with your magnetic ones.

Editor's note: Speaking of falsies, you’ll also find a lot of hacks for applying false lashes can be applied to magnetic lashes, so if you have experience in that arena you’ll have a head start.

Step #2: Trim your lashes

Trimming your lashes—not your real ones—is a key step when applying magnetic lashes. The magnetic lashes likely won’t be the exact shape and length of your lashes, so you want to trim them for a perfect fit. You can also cut them into smaller sections, such as halves or thirds, to make them more manageable and easy to apply.

Step #3: Apply your lashes

Now it’s time for the most important step—actually applying your magnetic lashes. You can choose to apply them with tweezers or simply using your fingers; whatever you feel more comfortable with. First, place the top lash strip on top of your actual lashes, making sure to align the lashes with either edge of your lash line. Then, gently place the bottom lash strip below your lashes and watch the magic happen! The magnets will connect and you’ll have an instant full set of falsies. If you didn’t align the strips as well as you thought, simply remove them and try again! Practice makes perfect and luckily there isn’t any glue residue to deal with when it comes to fixing magnetic lash mistakes.


Bold lashes are beautiful but they don’t make for a complete look. You’ll need to complement your magnetic lashes with a little more makeup. Since magnetic lashes are nothing short of dramatic, you’ll want to wear eye makeup that matches the bold statement of your lashes. We love pairing them with a classic black smoky eye! Here’s how to create your eye makeup look—which should be done before applying your lashes.

Step #1: Apply a primer

Start by applying an eye shadow primer to ensure your makeup lasts all day and night. This will also allow your eye shadow colors to appear their true, vibrant color.

Step #2: Grab your eye shadow

You can create a black smoky eye with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quads Eye Shadow in Cookies & Cream. First, apply the light gray eye shadow to your lid. Then, use the dark gray eye shadow to define your crease. Deepen your crease by applying the black shade to the outer V of your lid. Brighten your eyes by applying the white eye shadow to your inner corner. Use a fluffy shadow brush to blend out any harsh lines, then it’s on to the next step.

Step #3: Line your eyes

Round out your eye makeup look by creating your sharpest winged eyeliner look with the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Liquid Eyeliner in Black. Then, line your waterline and lower lash line with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Black.
