3. Pick up the lashes with the help of tweezers and bring them as close to your natural lash as you can.

4. Press both the ends with the help of fingertips and keep holding for at least 30 seconds to allow the glue to dry. The glue will become set and the lashes will not come along for the ride while lifting your fingertips from it.
