Eyelash Tutorial

By Janet

Eyelash Instructions:

People ask me all the time about my eyelashes so I’m happy to pass on what I do.

  • Buy from Amazon:
  • DUO Strip Eyelash Adhesive for Strip Lashes, Dark Tone. The box has PINK  The dark color dries to look like eyeliner. 
  • Ardell Duralash Short Black Flare Trio Lashes (medium length are really long!!)
  • Needle Nose Tweezers (no teeth).
  • A magnifying mirror is a must for me.
  • Squirt a SMALL amount of adhesive on something (I tear off a little Kleenex);
  • Pick up the eyelashes with the tweezers & dip the adhesive end lightly onto the DUO adhesive;
  • I place the lashes behind the base of my eyelashes, not directly on the eyelid (the junction of the lash and the eyelid). Lashes grow fast and this helps them last longer.
  • Let them dry in place – you may have to support them with your tweezer sometimes until they set. I usually try to fan them lightly to speed up the drying.
  • Then I dip a toothpick into the adhesive to use like eyeliner. The lashes stay on better & look nicer (to me). 
  • Touch them up whenever they come loose (more adhesive with the toothpick or replace the lash). Change the full set when needed.  I don’t get them wet in the shower – the adhesive gets gummy.


Enjoy! I hope this works for you!
