Who are PAPERSELF?
We are a London based brand and creators of the world’s leading paper lashes and designer of temporary tattoos!
What are paper lashes?
They are just that, lashes made of paper! As we are the inventors of the paper lash we have patents on the designs worldwide! Using paper means we are able to create beautifully intricate designs unlike anything you will have seen before!
Are the easy to apply?
Yes super easy!
- Gently remove lashes using your finger or tweezers. Shape the lash band to give it a curve. Lashes can be applied in full or cut into mini lashes to accentuate the outer corners of the eye.
- Apply a thin layer of glue along the lash band and wait a few seconds for the glue to become tacky.
- Place lashes slightly above the natural lash line. If using the full lash apply from inner to the outer corners of the eye. If using the mini lash, apply onto the outer corners to accentuate your eyes!
- Gently press down to set.

How do I remove the paper lashes?
At the end of the day simply pull off, just like you would any false lash!
Can I reuse them?
Yes! If careful when removing you should be able to reuse up to 3 times!
Where have I seen them before?
Our paper lashes are pretty popular with makeup artists! Our lashes have been featured in The Hunger Games movies, worn by Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks as well as Rihanna and Anne Hathaway!
How do you apply your temporary tattoos?
Our temporary tattoos are very easy to apply!
- Simply cut out the desired design
- Peel back the plastic
- Place face down onto clean skin
- Wet with water and peel off! Ta dah!
Where can I apply them?
Our tattoos can be applied to you skin – get creative with where you place them! Behind the ear, the ankle, arm, chest the list goes on!
We have even applied them to nails, hair, laptops, books etc.!
Warning: Do not apply to sensitive skin, near your eyes or if allergic to adhesive.
How long do they last?
Our tattoos will last 2-4 days. They may last longer depending on placement and wear!
What if I want to remove them early?
Soak tattoo with baby oil to allow the adhesive to dissolve. After 10 seconds, remove the oil with a cotton pad. If some of the tattoo remains, soak the tattoo again with baby oil and repeat process until tattoo has been removed.
Be careful to not rub the skin too hard, this will cause the skin to become red and may become sore. If applying to your face be gentle when removing, do not rub the skin hard particularly around the eye area.
