Measure these lashes right up to your eye in a way that it properly fits the length of your lash line. Now trim just as much as would make the lashes a little shorter than your natural eye length. Make sure to trim not from the inner corner but from the outer part.
Use lash glue
Hold the lashes right at the head of your tweezers or eyelash applicator and squeeze them gently. Take some glue and apply just a thin layer on to the eyelash band. Allow it to dry for about 30 seconds or until you find the glue getting sticky.
Apply the lashes and hold
Tilt your chin a little up and apply these lashes above the natural lash line. Keep holding for a short while, about a few seconds, so that the glue dries, and then release the lashes from the grip of the applicator. You may have to gently press the lashes on your lash line so that the hair blends well. If you notice any lifting then just add a little more glue and press the lash on to your lash line again. Once the glue dries you can apply your liner once again, and the look is complete.
