Strip lashes how to apply
Guide for strip lashes
First what’s your eye shape?
When I bought my first pair of strip lashes, it took me 2h to put them on and my eyes where were extremely irritated. I just couldn’t wait to get home and take them of. After that I alway thought that eyelashes are not for me.But after a few years I found out that, unfortunately strip lashes aren’t one-size-suits-all.
That’s why is best to identify what shape is your eye first , so that you know what eyelashes to buy, so that they will suit you perfectly.
Apparently Almond eyes, are considered the suit-all strip lash eye shape. This is when your irises disappear into your upper and lower eyelids when you look straight ahead.
That’s not happening for me.I have a Hooded eye.
Hooded eyes: when the crease on your eyelid isn’t visible. Try a thin strip lash in a shorter length.
Prominent eyes; when your eyelids appear projected in the eye socket area. Try balancing your top lashes with strip lashes on the bottom, too, which will give the illusion of pushing back your eyes.
Downturned eyes: when the outer corners of the eyes appear to be drawing downwards. Try a shorter strip lash that is longer in the outer corners to lift your eyes.
Deep-set eyes: when your eyes are set deeper into the head creating an illusion of a more prominent brow bone. Try lashes that are longer in length at the centre of the lashes.
Once you’ve discover what shape your eye is, its time to go out and buy a pair of good lashes extensions. 🙂
Remove the lashes from the box:
To remove always peel them from the outer edge, never from the inner corner.
Measuring-up the lashes:
Rest the strip lash along your lash line to see whether you need to trim it to size. The strip should start where your natural bulk of eyelashes begin, if you start too close to the inner corner it will irritate your eyes. To mark where your strip lashes should end, go to the outer corner and count 2-4 lashes inwards. If you have them hanging over, it can pull the eyes down.
Trimming the lashes to size:
If you have to trim your lashes to fit, remember to do it from the outside edge and don’t cut through the lashes, always cut them at the vein. If you cut upwards you’ll chop half of other lashes off you wanted to keep.
Applying the glue correctly: Apply a thin layer of glue, from corner to corner.Wait a few seconds for it to go gooey before application.
Remembering to place them where your natural bulk of eyelashes begin, look down and press the strip lash against your lash line in the centre, the outer edge and inner corner. You can use your hands here, I prefer to use tweezers.But be careful with a tweezer next to your eye.if you don’t feel confident just use your hands.
Squeeze the strip lash down onto the natural lashes so you don’t end up with a strip of skin between your lashes and the false lashes.
