1. Measuring and Cutting the Lash
You can buy strip eyelashes from your local drugstore, grocery store or anywhere where makeup is sold. They can come in pairs or sets of five to ten. They are basically a one size that fits all and are made longer than what you require; hence you need to cut them to the length that’s right for you.
To do this, hold the strips to your eyelid (just like how you would when you’ll apply it) in order to determine how much you’ll need to cut off. After which, employ scissors to cut it to a size that’s right for you.
2. Applying the Adhesive
Apply a thin ribbon of eyelash adhesive or glue along the lash band. Wait for a few minutes until it becomes tacky. Note that it shouldn’t be drippy. To ensure that you’re not using too much adhesive, employ a toothpick in applying glue.
3. Applying the Lash
With one hand, hold down your eyelid and use your other hand to press the strip to your lash base. You can also employ a toothpick or tweezers for nudging the strip into place. Continue pressing the strip until it sticks. Optional: Add a mascara for a more dramatic effect.
