Lashes 101

Updated: Jun 29, 2021

With so many different lash styles out there, it can be hard to know what style is the best for you. It can also be hard to know which glue to use or which technique is the best for applying lashes. No worries in this post I will go over all of these things and much more!

1.)The Versatility of Lashes

Lashes come in different styles and sizes this is why it is important to know all of the different styles of lashes before purchasing. There are numerous variations but these are just a few:


Mink Lashes

Mink Lashes are by far one of the more popular style of lashes. These lashes are also often more dramatic and bolder than other styles of lashes. This is why depending on the length these lashes can be pricy. The different lengths include: 10 mm- 30 mm. Here is an example of this style of lashes:




Faux Mink Lashes

Faux Mink Lashes are similar to mink lashes but are often less dramatic and inexpensive. These are my preference when it comes to lashes. I purchase mine from Kiss most of the time. Here is the link to the lashes that I wear often from Kiss



Wispies

This style of lashes are the most natural looking lashes in my opinion. They are much lighter than mink lashes and faux lashes. These lashes also have less lashes which causes them to look more natural. The lashes in the link below are also from Kiss and I personally use these as well. https://www.kissusa.com/lashes/blowout-lash-multipack-pixie



2.)Best Lashes For Your Eye Shape

Everyone’s eye shape is different this is a well known fact. What many don’t know though is how your eye shape plays a key role in how certain lashes will look on you and furthermore how they will compliment your makeup. For example, according to an article on glamourmagazine.com the best lashes for rounded eyes are “lightweight, curly lash is the way to go to accentuate and avoid thick, heavy styles as they can weigh your eyes down.” I recommend following the link to determine what lashes will work best for you.


3.) Techniques For Applying Lashes

There are two ways to apply lashes. Those ways include using your fingers to apply the lash or using tweezers to apply the lash. For myself I prefer to apply my lashes with my finger but on occasion I do use tweezers. I also prefer to apply the glue as close to my lash line as possible and not on my lashes. This makes applying lashes easier for me.
