For someone who never tried false eyelashes before, finding the right set can be a daunting task. I mean, it’s not as easy as picking the right mascara. From individual and clustered lashes to full eyelid-length lashes ranging from subtle to extreme – which will give you the most natural look (and having people complimenting on your mascara)? Well, let’s find out. First, let me walk you through the most popular false eyelashes out there, plus their pros and cons:
Lid-length style / Strip Lashes
Probably the most common style of false eyelashes. Lid-length style eyelashes run from the lid’s inner corner to the outer corner.
They can be trimmed to fit the eye and to start from any desired position. The styles of these lashes range greatly. Some are very full, some are sparse, and some have long lashes spaced by shorter ones.
Lid-length false eyelashes provide a wide variety of looks. They are easier to apply for the novice wearer than individual lashes and give an instant look of appeal and glamour, suitable for just about any event or occasion. This style of the false lash is the most versatile and, if taken care of properly, can be used for several applications.
How to use Lid-length style correctly?
1. First, you will need to trim the lash strip to fit the width of your eyelid. A mustache scissor is perfect for this job.
2. The next step is to curl your natural eyelashes and apply the lash glue along the false lash strip in a very narrow line. Let it dry for a minute until it becomes sticky.
3. Next, place a mirror on the tabletop and look down. This makes it easier to get the false eyelash on your lash line.
4. Place the false eyelash exactly on the lash line.
5. Apply one coat of mascara to blend your natural eyelashes with the false eyelashes, and Tada!
Individual Eyelashes (for Enhanced Lashes With a Natural Feel)
Individual eyelashes come in various shapes, lengths, and colors. The most common colors are black and brown. They come in short, medium, and long lengths and consist of small, fan-shaped clusters. Individual lashes give the most freedom in lash placement, thickness, and shape. Most often they are applied on the outer half of the lid, giving a more subtle and natural look. False lashes can often look to be just that: false. When applied correctly, individual lashes leave others wondering whether they are false or just naturally long, beautiful lashes.
Applying individual lashes takes some patience and practice but the customization allowed is worth the effort. Individual lashes are subtle enough that they can be worn anytime, from everyday makeup to an evening out.
Extreme false eyelashes come in many different styles. Some come with enhancements, such as jewels and beads nested into the lashes. They are available in different colors, extreme lengths, and even a variety of materials from metallics to feathers. While extreme lashes are not for those who are looking for a subtle enhancement, they are a fun choice for anyone looking to make a statement for an evening.
