Individual lashes vs Strip lashes

Personally I prefer to use individual lashes simply because they look more natural than strip lashes when correctly applied.  With individual eyelashes the lashes blend into your real lashes sinces there is no track holding these lashes together. With strip lashes there is a fine track holding the lashes together and if someone looks closely it can be seen expecially if the lashes are not correctly applied. However, individual lashes take alot more time to apply than strip eyelashes. While strip lashes take about 5 minutes, individual lashes take about 30 minutes.

How to apply fake eyelashes

Ok, now that you have everything that you need lets get to it. Firstly I would tell you how to apply individual lashes.

Before you take out any of the individual eyelashes squeeze some adhesive on the top of the case which holds them, then using the tweezer pick out one eyelash, the size you prefer. Then dip the end, where the two strands of hair are joined in it, after doing so blow it to dry the glue a little. Now stick the individual lash exactly where your real eyelash grows out, make sure that it is curling up and not down. Keep applying more eyelashes until you get the look you want. When every lash is on, then use the mascara to blend the fake lashes and the real lashes together.

Now, how to apply stip lashes. Firstly you will need to take the strip lash and place it ontop you lashes without glue, just to see if the lenght is right or if it needs to be trimmed a bit. Put some glue on the end of the tweezer (the handle part) then slowly apply the glue to the end of the stip lash, then blow. Now stick the eyelash from the inner corner of the eye, to the outer corner. Remember to stick as close to the natural lashes as possible and make sure the ends are sticked properly, this is very important. Use the tweezer to put a little pressure where the lash is attached.

Now there you have it, you learnt how to apply eyelash extension.
