There are many videos on YouTube if you are having trouble. If you have a specific problem you can describe it and we can try to help.

Makeup artist Lisa Eldridge has a few videos on YouTube about applying false lashes. All her videos are informative, too.

I agree with the above posters, YouTube is the best place to start. But the most important thing is practice, practice, practice. Invest $20-$30 in starter practice lashes. STRIPS ONLY, if you are a true novice. Also, you cannot go wrong with Maybelline Stiletto liner or NYX liquid liner. They are inexpensive and effective, but if you plan to wear makeup all day, invest as well in some eyeshadow/face primer. Again, NYX makes a great primer for around $6. Eye makeup remover, Q tips, and patience are all you need to practice. Lisa Eldridge is great, along with Jennie Jenkins, Beat Face Honey, AndreasChoice, and Lover4Fashion. Good Luck!

Wearing makeup, particularly eyeliner/false lashes, can be quite difficult when you first start out. Your eyes might be sensitive, which can really suck (watery eyes are a nightmare when it comes to kohl and non-waterproof liners!). Youtube videos are really helpful, and you can find some very useful tips on websites, but it mostly comes down to practice, like bunnielove pointed out. Accordingly, I would suggest purchasing a drugstore liner (like Maybelline's Master Drama) and quite a lot of makeup remover to practice with. After you're more comfortable with it, you can move on to nicer liners.
For lashes, I would suggest Ardell, simply because they're durable (which means you can get more uses out of them) but they're also soft and comfortable, which is, for me, absolutely essential.
