Kiss Lashes are some of the better lashes to start out with bc of ease of use. I would follow the other suggestions above and just keep trying. A LOT of people have a terrible time - at first. The old adage is true, practice makes perfect. When I first started out, I would START with the eye that was hardest for me & get it out of the way, so moving on to my other eye was easier. If you get wrong, try again. You will have it down in no time. I highly suggest getting a starter kit that will include everything that you'll need. And do not forget to trim the lashes to fit you eye bc if they are too long, it will make application that much harder!
