Isolate the natural lash with the curved tweezers. While holding the extension from its tapered end, swipe the extension along the natural lash. Coat the natural lash with adhesive from base to tip with no gaps in the glue. Spread the adhesive until smooth.
Step 6. Set
After swiping the natural lash with enough adhesive to coat it, set the extension on the lash about 1/2–1 mm away from the eyelid. Release the extension onto the natural lash. The lash should be facing upwards and parallel to the other lashes without any beads of glue. Do not touch the extension after setting. Move on to another area or the opposite eye and repeatedly apply extensions until It becomes difficult to isolate more natural lashes.
Step 7. Separate
No two extensions or natural lashes should be stuck together. Use both sets of tweezers to separate any extensions from neighboring lashes and/or extensions. Grasp and separate in a horizontal manner; best done while the adhesive is dry, but not fully cured. Never pull in a vertical direction or place any tension on natural lashes. Repeat the application and separation steps until every natural lash is bonded.
