Best Lash Application for Naturally Curly Eyelashes

Are your natural eyelashes curly like mine????

 

One of the most irritating thing I have always had to deal with was my curling eyelashes. Often times the hairs would find their way into my eyes! I would constantly rub them, or even pluck out all of the lashes on my waterline (so basicallyALL of them).

 

I remember when I first tried mascara. It actually gave my eyelashes length! Because they were so curly, I had only assumed my eyelashes were short. The mascara really showed me my eyes in a notable manner that I adored, but it didn’t fix the problem.

 

Halfway into the day, the mascara would have lesser of the effect to keep them stiff and into place. It would began to smear around the corners of my eyes and,YEP, you’ve guessed it! My eyelashes were back poking me in my eyes!!!

 

LUCKILY, when I began the wear false lashes I knew I found the perfect solution! Here’s how ...

 

 

 

ApplyingLash Strips to Curly-Natural Eyelashes

 

This 3-step guide has helped me apply my false lashes with ease. Not only will the application be a breeze, the removal of the lashes will be just as swift! Follow these steps for the best results.

 

 

STEP 1: Prep the Eyes

 

With any makeup practices, it will always be a great idea to start with a primer. This is to prepare your skin for the impurities you are about to spread on it, and it acts as a barrier (or an extra layer of protection) to block your pores from getting clogged and irritated, while also creating a long-lasting base for your foundation.

 

For lashes, our primer would be . . .MASCARA!

 

Personally, I would recommend using a defining mascara to elongate your natural hairs so that the curls would straighten out a bit. However, you can use any mascara you have. The tip here is to use small amounts of it; 1-2 coats are just perfect!Lightweight and no clumps.

 

Allow the mascara to harden before moving on . . . .

 

 

STEP 2: Cut & Paste

 

Some lashes can be a little tricky with sizes, so you have to make sure they are the best fit for your eyes.

 

Remove the strips from their trays and begin measuring them. Place them right on top of your lash bed, starting from the inner corner closest to your nose. You want to give this corner a gap of space away so that the hairs in the strip just barely (or not at all) touch the sides of your nose.

 

Then, extend the full length of the strip to the outer corner of your eyes. However much of the lashes that runs past this cornerhas to go!

 

While still holding the excessive ends, take the lashes off of your eye-lines, and proceed to cut the bands near your fingertips.

 

Easy enough?

 

 

STEP 3: The Perfect Placement

 

Now, andUSING LASH GLUE ONLY, you can do this 2 ways: either spread an ample amount of the adhesive across the lash strip and allow it to get tacky for about 60 seconds before attaching it to your eyelids, or you can apply an even line of the adhesive directly above your lash beds for about 20 seconds before attaching strips (this method is less messy and will save you time).

 

The adhesive will look gummy when it is ready. If it is not tacking, you may have started too soon or too late.

 

I hope you have your applicator tools ready!

 

Place the lash strip in the center of the curve on the tool. That way it’s easier to sit the strip in the perfect spot. Starting from the outer corner this time, rope the lashes into the glue right above your lash bed around til you reach the inner corner.

 

Once you have your strip in the desired frame, use your tool to secure it into your natural lashes. That is, applying a little pressure on top of the lash strip down into your lash bed. Sometimes I have to use my fingers to apply pressure under my lash beds so I’m not worried about my curly lashes moving under my falsies and into my eyes, but alas this is the most efficient trick I’ve learned about applying lashes.

 

Top it off with a liquid eyeliner to correct any mistakes and make your statementbolder!

Now that you have your lashes on perfectly, at some point you’ll need to take them back off. I’ll let you in on the secret . . .

 

 

Best ways to remove your lash strips

 

Did you know that lash adhesive iswater-soluble?Yep, It’s true! It’s actually very simple but be cautious of getting the lashes wet or it will not hold up its original form.

 

Here is 3 different methods I use:

 

  1. Wipe around the glued strip with a makeup wipe. If you used eyeliner, this is the area you should be wiping.
  2. Take a steamy shower. The heat will melt your primer and make the removal process so much easier! Just pull them off.
  3. **This is if I’m being lazy** I would rub my eyes as if I’m trying to wake myself up and make a few tears surface around my eyelids. I know that when my fingers are wet the lashes come right off!

 

I never use a lash removal serum for strip lashes!

Those coats of mascara I use always protect my natural lashes from ripping out. I highly suggest that you use it too! Notice that the glue cannot pull out your lashes when it is wet because the water dissolved it’s stickiness!

 

Once your strips are no longer attached to your face, remove any excess glue that could still be on it. It is now time to cleanse them. Use a makeup wipe, or my favoritemicellar water, to disinfect them and gently remove any makeup.

DO NOT SOAK THEM!

 

Replace them back into their cases for further use and keep them stored in a visibly clean area.

 

 

To Summon up . . .

 

Remember that natural curly eyelashes require a special trick to achieve the perfect false lash application. Try out the 3-step method I created to tackle the job. Prep your eyes using any kind of mascara, cut the strips to fit your unique eye-line, use a good amount of lash adhesive and perfectly stick your falsies into place.

 

It may take a few tries before this method gets easier, but you can do anything you believe you can.

 

Don’t forget to take off your lashes before you go to sleep!!! Loosen up that glue with a little water and there’s your easy removal. Take an extra few minutes to sanitize your lash strips and put them away nicely so that when you are ready to put them back on, you’ll have no time to waste!
