- (Tip 1) Check out their before and after pictures! You want to see that there is no clogging of glue, lashes are straight and bonded neatly to the natural lash with no lifting. Another key point, have a good look at the after picture for irritation and redness. If the lash pads are applied properly eyes should not be irritated.
