They can be bought thick or thin, wide or narrow, long or short, depending on your eyelid and choice of style. Be sure to purchase extra glue to keep in your purse for those moments when you may have to touch up an end.
The pp gave excellent advice on application, but you can also buy falsies in one long strip, too, and the length doesn't have to be too long.
I have never used them myself, but have had to apply them to my daughter (dancer & performer) for MANY years. What fun it was when us parents were told that tiny rhinestones had to be applied just above the falsies as part of their performance outfit! LOL.....I've dealt with all sorts of makeup fun.
Play with them for a day before you actually plan on wearing them out of the house, especially so you can get used to them. My daughter said it took her awhile to learn not to blink so much.
