I have a hard time with the full strip kind, even went to beauty school for training as a make-up artist and still couldn't get it! However, the ones that come in small clumps ( the box calls them individual) are easy to use . I use Ardell Duralash. I discovered them 3 years ago on maternity leave( desperate to look awake & perky LOL). The full strip type use a sticky adhesive, the individual ones use a stronger adhesive that needs a adhesive remover. You could also snip little sections from the full strip kind, if you don't want to use the ones with strong adhesive. I have really long lashes,but I do look see a difference with some falsies placed at the outside corners. mr. tinker can't tell the difference, but I can.
