Step 1: Choose your curl
Similar to extensions, you (and your natural set of lashes) have some say in the final product. Mine grow extremely straight, so my technician and I made the joint decision to go for the most dramatic look. Those who already have a bit of curl may prefer the "natural" option, and if you're not sure which to choose, you can try something in between.
Step 2: Clean eyelids and lay down a roller
Annnd we're off! The first order of business: protecting your bottom lashes by placing damp cotton pads over them, directly below your water line. This ensures they stay out of the way and won't accidentally get curled with your top lashes. Next, the area is gently cleaned to remove dirt and oils and a more gentle version of false eyelash glue is swiped onto your lids. After it gets tacky, a gel roller (selected based on your curl of choice) is placed down.
