Yes!! There are several tricks to the trade, practice is one of them but there are a few others:
Glue is very important, I tend to like a more translucent glue, not something that comes out of the tube looking like white glue, you should be able to paint it very gently on the edge of the lash.
To apply them, I have found in teaching other people, it is easiest to set your mirror on the desk/vanity surface so that you are looking down into it, and begin from the inside and work out.
When the lashes are new if they feel pre-shaped and not flexible then just run a little hot water at the edge where you would put the glue to soften the package feel.

after applying glue, let it get tacky for about 15-20 seconds then apply the center (middle) down first on your lid then press the inner then outer side down. I usually look in the mirror with my chin up that way you can get it close to the natural lash line as possible. Hope this helps! took me many tries as well! = )
