I mean.. seriously.. why else would I launch my own range of lashes years ago before owning your own lash brand was the in thing to do.. lol.. *meow* anyhoo!!!!!  As I was saying.  I’m obsessed and i’ll freely admit it but have you ever wondered why?

Then, shape the side walls into a rounded oval, making sure the angles are even on each side. Square With strong side walls and sharp or rounded tips, this shape is classic French.
