ModelCo Flutter Self-Adhesive Lashes

No more glue! ModelCo’s reusable, self-adhesive lashes don’t require any messy, old-fashioned glue! Flutter allows you to create the sexy lashes you’ve always wanted with a minimum of five uses per set thanks to the reusable adhesive strip.

ModelCo Tip: For the perfect application, place lashes as close to the baseline of your own lashes as possible. Hold the lash in place for a few seconds until the adhesive strip has a chance to hold. Apply dark eyeliner to camouflage the line of the fake lashes with your own, then coat lashes with mascara to blend for a flawless finish.
