Measuring-up the lashes:
Rest the strip lash along your lash line to see whether you need to trim it to size. The strip should start where your natural bulk of eyelashes begin, if you start too close to the inner corner it will irritate your eyes. To mark where your strip lashes should end, go to the outer corner and count 2-4 lashes inwards. If you have them hanging over, it can pull the eyes down.
Trimming the lashes to size:
If you have to trim your lashes to fit, remember to do it from the outside edge and don't cut through the lashes, always cut them at the vein. If you cut upwards you'll chop half of other lashes off you wanted to keep.
Applying the glue correctly:
Dot a thin layer of glue (straight from the adhesive applicator) along the vein of the lash, from corner to corner. Wait a few seconds for it to go tacky before application. If you want super long-lasting application do the 'double adhesive' technique by applying some dots of glue along your lash line as well as on the lashes.
Remembering to place them where your natural bulk of eyelashes begin, look down and press the strip lash against your lash line in the centre, the outer edge and inner corner.
Bonding the lashes:
Having mascara to start with lets you pinch and push your natural lashes and the false lashes together so they set well. Squeeze the strip lash down onto the natural lashes so you don't end up with a strip of skin between your lashes and the false lashes. Carefully use eyelash tweezers or simply your fingertips.
