Yes, you can use these to fill in missing lashes (upper or lower)
Just be careful using the eyelash glue--which is different for individual lashes compared to strip lashes (the usual kind of false lashes). You will need to use permanent lash adhesive/glue.This is usually sold in tiny glass bottles. Apply it by putting a tiny dab on a piece of tinfoil, then take a toothpick to move some to the tip of the lash, or you can *very* carefully dip the knot end of the lash into the glue (careful to only get it on the knot part,not on the lash). Unlike regular eyelash adhesive, you do NOT need to wait for it to become tacky.
Using a pair of tweezers to hold the lash works best in my experience (for both glueing and for placement).
Also, for lower lashes, get the shortest length available unless you have super long lashes. I've found that buying short and medium length individual lashes gives you lots of options and looks both beautiful as well as natural. The long lashes begin to look surreal in person (but they do look fab for a big event!).
You will need permanent lash remover to get these off. They are designed to stay on for up to 2 weeks, although I've never had them last longer than about 5 days. I rub my eyes too much when I'm tired! You can use petroleum jelly or baby oil, too, to get them off, but neither works as fast (it can sometimes can take overnight to loosen the individual lashes).
