13.) Blend the edges of the prosthetics with small amounts of eyelash glue to make the transition invisible.
14.) Carefully dry the glue using hairdryer on low temperature until it is clear.
15.) Apply a loose powder over the glue to take away the stickiness.
Then repeat steps 13, 14, & 15 until you are happy with your transitions.

16.) Cover the pieces and edges with sealer liquid to make it easier to apply make-up.
17.) Use your make-up base foundations to blend the colors on the face until you get the look you want.
18.) You can use light colors to highlight the bone structure and features of the face.
