8 Steps to Perfect Eyelash Extensions

Posted: September 27, 2010

The following step-by-step for applying eyelash extensions was provided by NovaLash EyeLash Extensions.

Step 1. Apply under-eye stickers

When applying under eye stickers/gel patches, you should avoid placing the sticker too close to the eye. The sticker should be placed over the lower lashes, about 3-4 millimeters from the lower lash line. Check lids from below to ensure upper and lower lids form a seal with no gaps.

Step 2. Choose extensions

Always use at least three different lengths of extensions that range from 6 mm to 14 mm in length. It is best to use 8 mm lash extensions in the inner corners of the eye to avoid avoid an artificial clownlike look. It is also important to use 8 mm extensions all across the eye, between the longer extensions to create a thick lash line. Failure to mix in short extensions results in empty gaps that make the long extensions look similar to spider legs. For a dramatic look, opt for the thickest (0.25mm) curly extensions. Finer extensions create a more natural look.
