Thoroughly clean your eyelashes and eyelids so they are make-up and oil free.
1 - Pour a few drops of LashTite adhesive on a piece of foil
2 - Gently lift a DuraLash from tray with tweezers
3 - Dip end into adhesive
4 - Starting at the center of the eyelid, apply lashes one at a time by placing the lash cluster on top of one of your own natural lashes with the end close to, but not touching your eyelid. Support lash gently with fingertips until adhesive sets. Work towards the outer corner. Return to center and gradually work inward until lashes blend.
Apply 10-15 lashes per eye.
DuraLashes should be replaced as your natural lashes shed. (About 4 to 5 weeks.)
Care and Cleaning: Cleanse lashes with cool water. Oil-based cleansers soften adhesive. Be gentle. Don't rub or towel dry your eyes. Allow your lashes to air dry. Like natural lashes, DuraLashes will singe. Avoid open flame or direct heat.
Removal: Your DuraLashes can be easily removed with specially formulated LashFree Adhesive Remover. Never try to pull them off after adhesive has set.
Q -How do I remove strip lashes?
A - Starting at the outer corner of the eye, gently peel off the strip lash. Remove the adhesive from band and place lashes back on tray for re-use.

Q -What is the difference between LashGrip Adhesive for Strip Lashes and LashTite Adhesive for Individual Lashes?
A - LashGrip Adhesive is a latex-based adhesive formulated for strip lashes to last several hours. It can also be used to apply individual lashes for an evening. LashTite Adhesive is latex-free, and is intended to keep individual lashes on from 2-4 weeks.
Q -Can LashGrip Adhesive be used for applying individual lashes?
A - Yes. Makeup artists use LashGrip Adhesive to apply individual lashes for photo shoots, music videos, and films. If you want individual lashes on for several hours, use LashGrip Adhesive. If you want them to last for several days, use LashTite Adhesive.
Q -Should I apply strip lashes before or after I put on my makeup?
A - Some women like to apply their full makeup with lashes as the finishing touch. Others prefer to apply most of their makeup, lashes, and then blend eyeliner to hide the lash band.

A - Mascara is optional. If you have straight lashes, you can curl your lashes and apply a little mascara before applying strip lashes. Ardell's LashMagic is ideal for blending strip lashes to your natural lashes.
Q -Do I need to apply mascara when using individual lashes?
A - If you are applying individual lashes using LashTite Adhesive for long lasting results, mascara is not recommended. If LashGrip Adhesive is used for one evening with individual lashes, mascara can add extra volume.
Q -Strip lashes seem too challenging for me, but I don't have time to apply individual lashes. Are there any other options?

Q -What am I doing wrong if I can't get my strip lashes lined up right?
