    I love my lashes! I have collected a whole wardrobe of different kids and brands so whenever I feel like getting a little extra glam I pop on a pair of lashes. Its an inexpensive way to give yourself and instant makeover.

    One thing I do is that I cut each lash into two or three sections becuase it makes it easier tor me to put the smaller piece on vs trying to line up the entire lash and if I mess up I can take of the one that isnt right without having to remove the entire lash and starting over.

  • I can’t seem to put them on right no matter how hard I try, maybe I should try it with tweezers

      get yourself some cheap ones $1 or $2, or a lash kit with the clam and the small tube of glue, grab a handheld mirror and when your home with nothing to do just practice. Tweezers are the best to use but the clam helps keep the entire lash steady when you put it on.
