1. Measure and Trim Each of Your Strip Lashes
Not all lashes will fit straight from the package, some may be too long for your eye shape, so you will need to measure and trim them to size.
First, place your falsies on your eyelid, above the lash line. Next, mark where your strip lashes end at the outer edges of your eyes. Finally, take a pair of scissors to trim the false lash where it is too long.
2. Cover Your Lashes with a Thin Coat of Adhesive
To apply your lash glue correctly, dot a thin layer of glue along the outer seam of your falsies, from corner to corner.
Always leave the glue on the lashes for 30-40 seconds before applying to your eyes. This gives the lash glue enough time to get tacky to stick on your lash line better.
Tip: Take this time to bend your lashes, this will make the lash band flexible and easier to work with.

3. Apply your Lashes!
Place the false lashes on your eyelid, as close to the lash line as possible. Carefully pressing the inner corner and outer edge in place to secure the lashes.
Tip: Place a mirror under your face to look downwards when applying your false lashes. This will give you a better view of where exactly to place your lash strip.
