DO CUT YOUR LASHESyour eye. Generally, lashes come a little longer than the average eye, so you’ll need to cut them to size.
DON’T CUT THE INSIDE LASH
When cutting the lashes, NEVER cut the inside corner of the lashes. ALWAYS cut from the outside end.
DO PREP YOUR ACTUAL LASHES
DON’T PUT TOO MUCH GLUE ON THE LASHES
You only want to apply a thin layer of glue across the whole lash line – feel free to put a little extra in the corners, but don’t put that amount over the whole lash line. If you do this, the glue will smush and be visible on your eyelid. And that is not such a cute look.
DO WAIT FOR THE GLUE TO DRY
DON’T PUT THE LASHES ON DOWNWARD
When applying the lashes, don’t approach the eyelid straight on or from up above. Always come from upward, with your head tilted up and your eyes open, so you can see what you’re doing!
DO PUT THE LASHES RIGHT ABOVE YOUR LASH LINE
To blend the two lashes, press them together and push them gently upward with your fingers to make the falsies look as real as possible.
