You can blend them with black lashes by adding color to one layer and black to the others. You could do all colors or just a little pop of color. Make sure you do a thorough consultation so you and your client are on the same page. The actual lash itself can feel different from black lashes. Make sure you practice with them beforehand. Try premade fans to speed up time.
