The use of false eyelashes or extensions to increase and highlight the look is a beauty trend that in recent years has become a rage and a must for women. Before, these were only for theatrical or editorial use for fashion productions. Today, it is an indispensable beauty accessory.
Hollywood celebrities and top models incorporated it into their daily beauty routine to forget about the mascara and be impeccable, highlighting the lashes with an XXL volume. The sisters of the Kardashian-Jenner clan are some of the pioneers in using the trend of “false eyelashes”.
There are two types: false eyelashes or eyelash extensions. The difference between the two tabs is that the inserts -which can be hair on hair or the whole strip- are put on for a specific occasion and then removed or left alone, while extensions last for three to four weeks and hair is stuck by hair.
-What do you have to take into account to apply for the first-time false eyelashes or extensions of eyelashes?
-As a main point, it is important to have natural eyelashes where the extension of hair can adhere well, since these are always going to be glued on the natural eyelash.
-What are the materials used to apply them?
-For the application of eyelash extensions, the hair chosen by the client, the glue, a primer, the sealer, patches and a clamp to place hair by hair on the eyelash root are used.
-What kind of eyelashes do they apply? Natural hair? Artificial?
-What is the care that should be taken with the eyelashes?
-After placement or service, it is recommended to keep them away from the water, not to rub the eyes, avoid saunas or steam baths, avoid creams, oils or make-up removers in the extensions. You only have to brush them if necessary and it is not advisable to use the mascara, and if you apply it, make it special for extensions. It is recommended to do the service for three to four weeks.
False eyelash errors
-A big mistake is to apply the eyelashes quickly after placing the glue. It is recommended to wait 30 seconds for it to become hard and sticky and for its function of adhesion to be easier. Following this step, the tabs will be firm.
-Read the lashes without trimming them. Many buy the set of inserts and make use instantly. But these must be cut so that they adapt to the eye, that the look is natural and not excessively long. If they are left as they were purchased, the effect of drooping eyes is achieved, or the eyelashes look false.
-Application of mascara on the false eyelashes. Although sometimes unnecessary, many people who use them choose to add colour intensity. The against applying it on the false eyelash once placed is, at the time of detachment, that the glue and mascara can join and damage the natural lashes.
-Load them well above the natural lashes. A very common and unsightly mistake is to stick the strip of false eyelashes away from the line of the eye. It is advisable to do it as close to the natural eyelash to give a neat and clean effect.
- Prepare the appliques
If it is not identified to which eye they correspond, place the eyelash strips in front of the face with the tips facing outwards. With your fingers or a tweezer, first remove the outer edge and put them back in the box, to measure and adjust them. The individual false eyelashes, on the other hand, should be detached from the box using a clamp.
- Measure and adjust
Locate the curtain along the lash line and check if you need cuts. The strip should coincide with the natural beginning of the eyelashes. Cut the outer side of the tab. To keep the curved shape, one option is to roll the piece for a few minutes around a brush or pencil.
- Apply the glue
Place a very thin layer of product from one end to the other of the strip of lashes. Wait a few seconds to take consistency and can fix better. In the case of individual presentations, take a cluster of lashes with the clamp and smear their tips with a small drop. Wait a few seconds before gluing them.
- Fix eyelashes
Place the strip where the natural volume of eye lashes begins -previously makeup-. To do this, with the look down, press against the line of the tabs in the centre, the outer edge and the inner corner. How to adjust? Move it quickly before the glue is dry. Press again.
For individual presentations, adhere each tab where desired, pressing to fix it. Begin at the outer edge with the longest ones and continue towards the centre of the eye, until achieving the desired effect.
- Seal with mask
To finish, add one or two layers of the usual. This will allow to integrate the natural lashes with the inserts. If necessary, they can be pre-crimped
- It is necessary to allow the glue to dry slightly before placing the eyelashes. Check that it is not expired and always choose those of good quality.
- Make up your eyes with a biphasic product (composed of an aqueous base and an oily one). If the idea is to reuse the sconces, use an oil-free product.
- Gently remove the complete eyelashes, starting at the outer corner. Avoid sudden movements that can pull the hairs. To remove the individual, use a hair clip.
- Once removed, moisten a swab with almond or coconut oil and slide down the eyelids to neutralise the glue residue.
