And after that, on to lashes. For this look I’m gonna go with an angled lash. Just to go with the curve of the cat eye shape. So, you’re just gonna peel them off. Then I like to add a little bit of the eyelash adhesive on the back of my wrist. Just to give me some control over the amount that comes out. Then you’re gonna lightly graze it across. You don’t want too much lash glue on this, just enough. Now, the trick with eyelash adhesive is you want to kind of give it some time to dry on the lash before actually applying it. And while it’s drying, you want to curve it a little bit so it curves to the natural shape of the eye. You wanna do this for about thirty seconds. It depends on the glue. Some glues take a little longer than others. And then while you’re doing it, blow on it, and it will help speed dry the process. Once you have that ready, close your eyes. You’re gonna line it up with the top shape of her top lash line, and just lightly press it in. Also, it usually helps working with a thin brush that has like a tight point, because then you can just press them down. And open.
