One: Make sure lashes are clean, then apply eye makeup, except for mascara, and curl your lashes
Two: Put a tiny drop of lash glue on the back of your hand
Three: Pick up a cluster using a pair of slant-edge tweezers. Grip it close to the base, not by the tip, which could tear the lash. Dip the lash base into the glue.
Four: Position yourself in front of a mirror and angle your head back so you can see your lash line
Five: Stick the cluster in the first open spot you see between lashes on the outer corner of your eye - wiggling it in so it sits right on the lash line, not above it. Work inward.
Six: Add a few more clusters on any open spots, but don't use more than five on each eye.
Seven: When you have finished both eyes , leave lashes alone for five minutes to let the glue dry, then sweep on one coat of black mascara. Don't use a formula that thickens lashes - it can clump on fakes.
Eight: Comb through the tips of lashes to gently separate any that happen to get stuck together
*If you make a mistake, pull off the cluster, peel glue off the base, dab into the adhesive, and stick it back on

It's important to use the right mascara when wearing false lashes. Avoid thickening formulas, which can cause clumping. Instead look for lightweight mascaras that add length.
