Your choice of false lashes should be based on the style you want to go for but also your eye shape. Get this wrong and you’ll give yourself a little more difficulty than you’d probably like. If your eye shape is more hooded, then we’d suggest going for a longer lash to give a more dramatic effect. A rounded eye shape should use a shorter lash for more volume.
Take your time with the glue application and be careful to not use too much. The trick here is to wait a short period until the glue becomes tacky, but not too long that it dries out, then apply it to your eyelash. As with most things, practice makes perfect. A steady hand will set you up for eyelash success and all the joy that comes with it.
