Trimming your lashes is a key optional step when learning how to apply magnetic lashes. It’s better the lashes are slightly narrower than your natural eye width than too wide. Because if lashes are too wide for your eye they will lift at the ends. So snip off the outer ends to fit your eye correctly. If the magnetic lashes shape and length are not exact to fit your actual lashes, you can trim the lash band for a perfect fit. And you can also cut them into smaller sections to use them in the inner and outer corner lash. Keep in mind that only trim one lash down to size at a time and test before cutting any more.
Step 2. Apply Magnetic Eyeliner
Apply the magnetic eyeliner as close to the eyelid of your lashes as possible. You can shake the magnetic eyeliner to make sure it mixed well, and then brush a thin layer of magnetic eyeliner on your lash line, like you apply the regular eyeliner. You can apply 2-3 layers of magnetic eyeliner to make sure the line is thick and wide enough so that it can absorb the magnets on each lash.
Step 3. Apply Magnetic Lashes
Wait for approx 20-30 seconds depending on how much liner you applied, it’s time to put on your favorite lash style. You can soften the lash band before application, and then use an eyelash applicator or carefully with tweezers to grab one side of the lash band and and place it gently on top of the applied magnetic eyeliner as close to your lash line as possible, the lashes will contact with the liner and the tiny magnets on the lash band allow the lash to instantly connect to the eyeliner without needing a second magnetic lash to hold them on. And then grab the magnetic lashes near the root and press eyelashes down firmly in place to secure the lashes.

Application Quick Tips:
Always apply two thin coats of the eyeliner to your eyelids(hooded eyes may require three coats) before applying magnetic lashes, as the lashes will hold better.

Shake eyeliner well before use.
Keep your eyelids free from any oil, otherwise the magnetic eyeliner will not be effective.
Make sure lashes fit your eye width. If the line you draw is a thin layer but wide enough to absorb the magnets on each eyelash. If line is too fine, the magnets cannot grasp onto the magnetic liner.
