Optionally, trim the individual lashes to make them look more natural. They should be longer towards the outer corner of the eye, and the lash length should vary slightly
*Tips* *Individual lashes are applied in the same way. Trim the lashes so that they vary in length, with the ones towards the outer corner of the eye being longer. When applying them, start in the outer corner and work your way in.
*Remove the lashes before sleeping by using the special remover provided with your lashes. Otherwise, wet a washcloth with warm water and hold it over the lashes to loosen the glue. Petroleum jelly can help with dislodging particularly stubborn lashes. Whatever you do, don't pull too hard, or you might take some of your own lashes off, too!
*For a more dramatic effect, apply eyelashes on the bottom of your eyes as well. *Look for black eyelash glue at your local pharmacy or beauty supply store. It makes goofs look like eyeliner. *Go easy on the glue so that it doesn't build up on the false eyelashes or clump up your real eyelashes and leak into your eye. *To avoid using too much glue--take a straight pin and stick it into an old cork. The cork makes it easier to control and provides a handle. Dip the FLAT end of the pin into glue and dab it along the false lashes. *After applying glue to the lashes wait a few moments until the glue starts to set. It sticks better and won't move as much on your eye. The more glue you use the longer you will need to wait. *It only takes a small amount of glue to keep lashes on. Use the cork and pin method above to put a fine line of glue to your lashes. Most glues dry clear *The lash applicators are cumbersome. If any fine adjustments are needed they can be done with fingers or regular tweezers. *Apply the false lashes as close to your natural eye lash line as possible. @Warnings@
If false eyelash glue gets in your eyes, take the eyelashes off and wash your eyes out. After drying the eyelashes, you may be able to apply them again. Use the least amount of glue necessary to avoid accidents. Use clean eye lashes, tweezers and other accessories to avoid contamination Never use someone else's old eye lashes without sanitizing. Theatrical lashes can include glitter or other decorative touches. This glitter can sometimes get into your eyes. For a good tip, apply black eyeliner BEFORE you stick on the lashes. It's easier to handle with when you're done and gives it a clean natural finis
