Plus, ideally, a team of helpers. Seriously, do not attempt alone.

2. The extreme importance of hand–eye coordination.

4. And how, sometimes, you accidentally glue your eyes shut.

Maybe you can pull off an eyes-always-closed look??

5. The nightmare that is trying to get the lashes to sit straight.

Just stay. Just PLEASE stay.

6. That moment when you realize that they’re too long...after you've finally gotten them on.

And how it can all start to feel like too much.

7. Trying to trim them after they’re already on.

And totally trimming some of your real lashes too.

8. The pain you feel when they're finally on and you're so proud of yourself, but then you realize your eyelashes are SO HEAVY.

I'm supposed to go OUT now?

9. And when you’re out and trying to have fun, but can’t focus because you feel like your eyelash is sliding.

"I just... I know it is. I wonder how long I've got."

10. And then you check and it obviously is.

You knew it in your heart.

11. And the moment at the end of the night when you abandon them and know that all of your hard work was for nothing.
