Step 1: Draw a thin eyeline with the gel eyeliner. Curl your natural lashes with a curler, then apply mascara.

Step 2: Hold the basic upper false lash firmly and pull out the sticky glue that comes with the lashes. Leaving the glue there will make the lashes look used and worn-out.

Step 3: Align the false lashes with your eye before sticking it on. Make sure that it’s the right length, such that when you stick it on, there will be a gap at the inner corner and a tiny bit sticking out at the outer corner.

Step 4: Cut the lashline to length. Try to make the cut between lash bunches for a natural finish.

Step 5: Use black glue, as it will help to further enhance your eyeline. Apply it evenly onto the lashbone, and blow on it until the glue is half-dry.

Step 6: Using tweezers, start to stick on the false lashes from the middle of your eye, as close to your natural lashline as possible. Stick the rest of the false lash onto your eye, first at the inner corner, then at the outer corner.

Step 7: Make sure that the entire lash is fitted on firmly. Adjust the lash’s angle with your finger and mix it together with your natural lashes.

Step 8: Cut the cross-hair upper lash in half. We will be using the outer half to add volume at the outer corner.

Step 9: Stick on the cross-hair lashes at the outer corner, above the basic lashes. Allow the outer corner of the false lash to stick out beyond your eye for about 5mm.

Step 10: Cut the lower false lashes into small bunches. Stick on 3 bunches along the outer corner, using clear glue.

Step 11: Apply mascara to blend the natural and false lashes together. We recommend using lengthening mascara for the upper lashes and the comb-type for the lower lashes.

Step 12: Go over your eyeline again with liquid eyeliner to hide any trace of glue, and you’re done!
