Beautiful eyelashes give the eye the expression, and their length and density can provide unique femininity and beauty. Applying false eyelashes is one of the most modern beauty care. Each lady can have a stunning look without having to spend time every day, applying mascara and split the eyelashes that are stuck together.
There are three basic types of false eyelashes:
The strip lashes
Artificial eyelashes can be made of synthetic material, silk or natural hair.
Synthetic hairs are a little stiffer, but if they are placed properly, they look natural to the eyes.
Eyebrows from natural hair are finer and softer.
The other type of eyelashes that are available are silk lashes. They have the softness and smoothness of the natural but do not cause allergies. At the same time, they are healthier and lasting, bringing them closer to the synthetic ones.
You can place the entire eyelashes yourself at home. It is important to choose the appropriate density and length for you. The whole eyelashes are glued to the eyelid, to the base of the natural eyelashes, with special glue, which is removed with water or toilet milk.
Individual false eyelashes
The Individual lashes are for those that want to create a unique look and style. These are individual strands that are applied. Each strand is applied next to your natural lash.
This method of lash extension can lash up to 6 weeks with proper care. The eyelashes give volume to the natural ones. We highly recommend to be placed by a professional, but some do-it-yourself individual lash kits include lashes, tweezers, adhesive, and remover.
One to one eyelash extension gives the most natural look with a long-lasting effect. The most important advantage is that you do not need to use mascara. The glue applied is hypoallergenic and has amazing strength.
We recommend that they are placed only by a professional. The procedure lasts from 2 to 3 hours, and it is necessary to match the curve, the length and the thickness of the eyelashes according to the client. The eyelashes are placed, where each hair sticks to a single hair of the eyelashes. With this method of applying eyelashes, you can extend and thicken your lashes for a long period of time. Special long-lasting glue is used, which, when placing it, the professional should be careful not to let it fall into the eyes or stick to the eyelid. It is important to follow the care tips of your professional, who will do the extensions. Maintenance of the eyelashes is done once a month if necessary, supplementing the missing hairs. Keep in mind that artificial hairs fall with the natural eyelash growth cycle.
Removal of individual eyelashes is done again by the person who has placed them with a cleaner designed for long-lasting glue. After removal of the eyelashes, it is advisable to use recovery serum, nourishing eyelashes to speed up their growth.
The glues for the eyelashes can be black or transparent
Transparent glues are more for beginners and customers who are sensitive to the black pigment.
Long lasting glues for eyelashes are different. The difference is in the viscosity, time for bonding, the durability of the eyelashes and the amount of irritating evaporation.
According to indicators on the glues, the most appropriate is chosen, taking into account that the greater durability, the more evaporation, which can lead to eye irritation.
Individual eyelashes have different curves, lengths, and thicknesses
Curves can be: J, B, C, D and L (L +)
A good professional recommends a suitable curve, taking into account the customer’s natural eyelashes.
J curve – closest to the natural eyelashes. Compared with the other curves, this is the most straight one. Artificial eyelashes with a curve J create a natural look of the eyes.
B curve – slightly more curved than J. Mixed with J curved, create a 3D effect. They can also be used on their own and quite often placed at the end of the eye for a more impressive appearance.
C curve – the most commonly used artificial eyelashes, more curved than the previous two. The recommendation is to place that this curve in customers who have naturally curved eyelashes to allow the adhesive area to cover the extension curve.
D curve – One of the most curved artificial eyelashes, therefore they have the smallest adhesive area. Suitable for customers with naturally curved eyelashes who want to have a doll look. It is the best choice for special occasions and events.
L and L + curves – these artificial eyelashes are even more curved than the D curve and create a more dramatic look on the eye.
It is important to keep in mind that curve C is not suitable for all ladies. If the natural eyelashes are straight, we recommend using J or B curves. If you want curved artificial eyelashes, the professional must first bend the eyelashes with a curler so that the eyelashes can cover a larger area of adhesion.
– For short natural eyelashes, we recommend false eyelashes with a length of 7 mm – up to 9 mm.
– If you prefer normal long lashes – the recommended extensions are from 10 mm to 12 mm.
– For long natural lashes – use extenders of 13 mm – up to 15 mm.
– If you want the eyelashes to look as natural as possible, place between 30 – 35 hairs on your eyelid.
– If you want a more visible and “Barbie” effect, place 40 – 60 hairs per eye.
– The short lashes are placed at the beginning of the eye, and the long lashes at the corners of your eyes.
Do not forget that is important to adjust the thickness and strength to the customer ‘s natural eyelashes to fit the most suitable false eyelashes.
The thickness of the artificial eyelashes is 0.10 mm, 0.15 mm, 0.20 mm and 0.25 mm. It also can be 0.30 mm thick, but this is less common. The standard individual eyelashes are 0.15 mm thick, but if you want to have thicker lashes, you should consider how strong and healthy your natural lashes are. The thicker ones are heavier and they can exhaust your natural lashes, leading to an earlier fall of the extensions. In rare cases, there may be a change in the growth of natural lashes.
Our own eyelashes have a very short life, so we recommend you to visit the specialist once a month to add extra lashes to the missing ones. If you chose the length correctly, you will never notice the natural loss of your eyelashes.
Taking care of your false eyelashes
You can rest assured that your lashes will not fall either during swimming or after the removal of your makeup! However, you should take care of your extension. Here is a list of some essential cares:
1. Do not wet your lashes for 2-3 hours after the procedure as the glue should dry well.
2. Do not use greasy creams. They dissolve the glue.
3. Do not rub your eyes.
4. Do not make steam masks, or at least avoid them in the first 48 hours after the procedure.
5. Do not use a waterproof mascara. The removers for waterproof makeup contains oil from which your false eyelashes will fall.
6. To clean your makeup, use a gel or lotion. Micellar water is the one that we recommend.
With proper care and a regular maintenance your eyelashes can last for years. You don’t need to use mascara, the lashes are black and you will see that you do not need it. If you wish, however, it is not a problem to put mascara on, but make sure to be a water-based. When removing it, to it gently, without rubbing. This way you will avoid losing not only the extensions but also your own eyelashes.
Remember! The makeup is not the problem, the problem is how to get away.
You can ware contact len. Eyelash extensions and lens do not interfere with each other.
The natural life cycle of lashes is around 25 weeks. With different influences, like mascara, makeup shadows the life cycle of the eyelashes is shorter and they fall more often, with new ones emerging in their place. It is then that we need maintenance, placing to the newcomers.
