Ja'maal's Tips for Applying False Lashes:

  • Gently remove Eyelashes from the eyelash platform.
  • Lay lash on top of your natural lash line. If it extends beyond your lash line then trim the outer end with small scissors.
  • Using the soft applicator tip gently grasp false lash at the lash line.
  • Apply a thin line of eyelash adhesive along the band. Wait for 30 seconds until adhesive becomes tacky.
  • Close eye while holding the side of your face near eye area pull gently, this is to pull eyelid making it better to see your lash line. 
  • Apply the false eyelashes against eyelid close to your lash line as possible.



  • Wet lashes with water and cleanser.
  • Gently peel lashes off lid, starting in the outer corner.
  • Remove the adhesive from lash band, and you should store the lashes on the lash bed so they do not lose their shape and you can reuse them.
