Yep thanks ladies that sounds (worryingly) what I'm doing already. I am trying so hard not to have that gross bead of black glue, dabbing off the excess and waiting a while before putting it on. Also trying to coat the existing lash with a bit of it before putting it on, I have got so much better at this in only a week, but its so disheartening seeing them go out the door looking fab and secure, only to get a phonecall in the morning saying they have come out.

It wasn't until I saw those clumps thing morning and I just thought Oh god is that how much I'm supposed to be putting on??? And also they were MASSIVE heavy extensions that had been put on, like 14's 0.2's on tiny fluffy lashes, but the beggars were still clinging in for dear life, despite looking gross and tangly!

Just to check, what are the natural lashes like, and what lashes are you using?
Also what is your preparation before?

If you buy a pair of strip lashes you can stick them on to a curved surface and practice on them.
What a great tip! Thanks!

Natural ones are quite fine and thin... they have all had massive ones (except one) put on before tho so want me to carry on what they've already got, monster lashes (thick 14's) imo. That lady yesterday, they were just mad


Prep is blue eye makeup remover, pre treatment stuff, brush to separate them and then off I go. Hmm have I forgotten something... this is making me wonder

Just check you are thoroughly priming the lashes before application. This can make a huge difference to how well the lashes will last.

I use 2 microbrushes with primer and hold one above the lash and one underneath. Put them together and wipe down the lashes .

Hope this makes sense

It's probably the fact they're too heavy for her natural lash :-(
