Looking for even more va-va-voom from your false lashes? Stack 'em, baby! That's right! You can mix and match multiple pairs of our mink lashes to get a look that's 100% you, and 100% drop-dead gorgeous.

The first step: Select your lashes.

You can double stack ANY of our lashes, but it doesn't hurt to take a moment to consider the look you're shooting for. Want just a bit more oomph, but nothing too dramatic? Try using two pairs of our Light Volume Lashes for a look that's voluminous AND eye-opening. (The No. 203s and No. 311s work great for this.)

Mixing different shapes can result in amazing looks. For example, pairing lashes that are fuller on the outer edges (like our No. 75s) with a pair of full criss crossing lashes (like our No. 325s) will give you volume and definition at the lash line while lifting your eye into a beautiful cat's-eye shape. 

Once you've selected your lashes, it's time to stack them! It's so quick and easy that you'll wonder why you never tried it before.

Stack one lash atop another, pressing the bands together. You'll want to be sure to match the ends of the lashes. If your lash bands have different widths, place the outside edge ends together. 

Next, measure the lashes to fit your eye. Carefully place your stacked lash against your natural lash line and check the length. If you need to trim them, cut off a little at a time, and cut only from the outer edge. Got the fit just right? Great! Let's get those lashes a-fluttering!

Luckily, applying stacked lashes is just like applying regular ones. Apply a thin line of adhesive (I like Lotus Brush-On Lash Glue because of its ease of removal) to the lash band and wait at least 30 seconds or until glue becomes tacky. Then carefully set the stacked lashes on your natural lash line. Be sure to press down firmly, paying special attention to the inner and outer corners. Some people find it helps to use tweezers when applying lashes; others prefer to use their fingers. Whatever works for you! For even more information about application, check out my blog post about it.

That's it! You've got lashes that go the extra mile, and it was easy as could be.

P.S.: When it comes time to remove the lashes, many people prefer to leave them stacked. It is possible to separate the stacked lashes after wearing, but use caution! Remove as much glue as possible, and then pull them apart gently. Double-check each band for glue residue before you put them away for the night. Treat your lashes right, and they'll last for a long, long time!
