Step 1: Roll the band down to loosen the glue—Tharp says if you pull it straight off, you risk damaging the “hairs.”

Step 2: Wrap the strand around your finger to soften the spine.

Step 2B: This is optional, but if the spine is really stiff, run it through your fingernails like a ribbon to give it bend.

Step 3: Measure the strand against your eye. If there’s any overhang, take note of how many lashes too long the strand is.

Step 4: Cut the band from the inside—not the outside! That way you don’t lose any volume.

Step 5: Apply glue with a cotton swab. Wait a few seconds to let the glue get tacky on the lash. And remember: No blowing!

Step 6: Using tweezers, place the middle of the strip in the center of your eye.

Step 7: Nudge the outer and inner corners down along your lashline.

All done !!!

If, at the end of it all after some practice, you're still having trouble getting a full strip on (no worries; they're tricky!)
