STEP 1. Find a photo of the celebrity whose eyelashes you want to copy. Give it to your therapist. Job done.
Fair enough, there is no harm in starting with a look you want to copy. But it may not be possible or advisable for you to copy it – because of the nature of your eyes and your eyelashes. These are some example issues, taken from the more-detailed discussions in the pages listed on the right of this page.
- If you have soft thin natural eyelashes, they won’t be able to carry the weight of a long extension lash.
- If you have gaps in your eyelash line or sparse eyelashes, single eyelash extensions may not work for you at all – although Russian volume lashes might.
- If you have naturally straight lashes, you can’t realistically carry a set of D-Curl extension lashes, because the straight and the curl don’t have a sufficiently large shared bonding area for glue.
- If you have hooded or deep-set eyes, you may not be able to use strong curls because they would be in danger of scraping on your eyelid or brow bone.
- If you and the celebrity whose look you would like to emulate have completely different eye shapes or face shapes, eyelashes which work for them may look completely wrong on you.
What we recommend you do – before you make a positive choice – is to read the pages listed on the right of this page, to see what will work with your eyelashes and your eye type, and what will not. Then do this …
- Assess your eyelashes. Are they weak or strong, short or long, straight or naturally curly, plentiful or sparse? That will narrow down what length, thickness, and curl of lash you can carry on your eyelashes.
- Consider your eye type. That will tell you what style of eyelash extension will flatter your eyes.
- Now that you have narrowed down your possible options, you can make a choice from them. We hope we’ve helped you make a choice which will make you happy and beautiful.
