What You Will Need
You will need eyelashes that you like, eyelash adhesive, a clean pain of sharp succors, a clean pair of tweezers, and your favorite mascara. I have linked some of my personal favorites of all these products for you to try if you wish!
Sizing Your Lash Line
After you have bought all the things you need the first thing you will need to do is size the eyelash strip to properly fit your eye size. First take your pair of tweezers and carefully pull the lash strip off the container. The second thing you need to do is WITHOUT applying you adhesive take the lash strip and place the first one carefully on top of your natural lashes to see how much you need to cut off. Now carefully take the lashes and cut a little off of the far corner. Continue to do this until it fits comfortably on your eye and looks the right size. Remember you can always cut off more if you need to but you can't add more to the lash line.
Do's and don'ts!
Make It Look Natural!
Now that you have sized your false eyelashes to fit your natural eye size we are going to apply mascara to your natural eyelashes then start gluing you false lashes on! You begin by taking your adhesive and carefully applying a small line of it on the base of your lash strip. Now to apply them there are different ways depending on what you are comfortable with. You can take those same tweezers from earlier or just use your hands. Once your adhesive it tacky carefully place your false eyelash one top of your natural eyelash line. Once you get that on carefully press your falsies into place to make them look like your natural lashes.
Finishing Up Your Look!
Once you are done gluing on your false lashes you need to carefully make sure that they are completely dry. When they are dry you can go in with a little more mascara to give your lashes a little extra pop!
These beautiful lashes are my personal favorite. These are a little thicker pair of lashes so they don't fall apart like a lot of other thinner and cheaper lashes can. They are rather easy to apply just make sure you bend them to more of the shape of your eye.

I personally love this adhesive. I have been using this brand of adhesive since I began using false eyelashes. This adhesive dries clear which I love because if I make a mistake you cant even see it!
