BEFORE YOU START
Please shake the pen or bottle for a few seconds before each use. Seal it after each use to prevent product from drying out.
Like any makeup product, please swatch product on hand to make sure you are not allergic to any ingredients in product. If no reaction occurs, proceed to application.
If you need to trim the lashes, make sure to cut the band so that the end is a magnet.
READY? LET'S GET STARTED
1. APPLY MAGNETIC LINER
Carefully apply eyeliner as close to the roots of your lashes as possible. Make a line as thick as the size of the magnets on the lashes and make sure that there is enough liner on the brush when applying. Make sure to line from your inner to outer corner so that the magnets at the ends of the lash band can hold on properly, starting at where your natural lashes start to where they end. A wing is optional. Wait 20-60 seconds depending on how much liner you applied. The liner should be about 80% dry before magnetizing lashes.
Athena's Tip: Angle the brush parallel to your lash line and use your pinky to prop up your hand on your cheekbone for the easiest application. If you feel more comfortable with your own liner, you can use our liner as a top layer. To blend your lashes better, curl your lashes after liner application and apply mascara! We don’t suggest you apply mascara onto Athena lashes as that may ruin them prematurely.
2. SOFTEN THE LASH BAND
Remove lashes from case and gently bend the eyelash band to make it softer and contoured to your eye shape better.
3. APPLY MAGNETIC LASHES
Grab magnetic eyelash towards middle of band.
Hold a mirror at chin level and look down as you slowly make contact
between eyeliner and magnetic strip, making sure to align the middle of the band with the
middle of your eye. Make contact with the outer corner first, then gently press the lash onto the inner corner. Get the band as close to your natural lashes as possible. You can pinch the natural and fake lashes together to ensure this happens. If you have long lashes, make sure to get behind your natural lashes so they don’t interfere with the eyeliner to magnet contact. Once lashes make contact with liner, grab lashes near the root and press into place to make sure it “sets”.
Athena's Tip: Place lashes about 1 cm away from the inner corner to ensure it does not bother you.
Gently pull lashes off your eyes and clean your eyelids with any oil based cleanser (We suggest our waterproof makeup swabs, micellar water, waterproof makeup wipes, fractionated coconut oil, etc). Warm water with a gentle scrub in the shower will even get it off!
If there is any dried magnetic liner stuck onto the magnets, use your thumb nail to scratch off as much as possible. Use a makeup wipe to gently clean off any remnants on each of the magnets (We love Neutrogena makeup remover wipes!). Use the wipe to clean off the magnetic strip in the box as well, then magnetize the lashes back into the box! Please DO NOT get the lashes wet as this could ruin their curl and shape!
