It is known to all that a makeup routine is incomplete until your eyes look bright and awake. You may straighten your hair, apply your concealer, and spray your perfume but until you pay attention to how your eyes are looking, your look will feel lacking. The best way to make your eyes attractive is by using eyelash extensions.
Once eyelash extensions entered the beauty industry, everyone started raving about how easy it is now to get wispy and voluminous lashes. However, if it is not applied following a proper technique, it can cause some damage to your natural lashes too. Therefore, here is a guide on how you can apply eyelash extension using hypoallergenic tape safely and effectively.
Steps To Applying Eyelash Extension
Eyelash extensions are attached to your natural lashes using glue which makes it semi-permanent. Because these lashes are applied one at a time, getting the assistance of a professional is recommended. Here are some steps that are involved in the application process of eyelash extensions.
STEP 1: Choose The Lash Type
Many lash extension professionals use silk, mink, and synthetic lashes. Some professionals may ask you what kind of lash you prefer but some may go ahead with their personal preference. However, it is better to communicate what type of lash you want to use to the professionals so that if you are allergic to any material, you can make it known before getting the extensions. If you want a natural look, mink and silk eyelashes are preferred and if you want a bolder look, you can go for synthetic eyelashes.
STEP 2: Cleaning The Lash Area
Before applying for the extensions, the area surrounding your natural lashes must be cleaned. If you are getting the extensions in a studio, the lash artist will start cleaning the area before they apply for the extensions so that all the makeup, its residue, and germs can be removed. Hence, if you are planning to get extensions, not wearing makeup on that day is recommended.
STEP 3: Applying Gel and Tape
Once your lash area is cleaned, the lash artist will apply a gel to your lower lash so that it does not interrupt the application process. A medical-grade hypoallergenic tape is used to secure the gel thereafter.
STEP 4: Applying The Lashes
The extensions must be applied with care one at a time using a tweezer. The lash artist will apply the lash extensions using glue that is semi-permanent so that the extensions can stick well without damaging or irritating the natural lashes. Keep in mind that the extensions are applied to the natural lash and do not involve the skin. The entire application process is painless.
STEP 5: Drying The Lashes
Once the above step is complete, you will have to keep your eyes closed and wait for ten minutes so that the lash glue can dry properly. Once they have fully dried, the artist will remove the tape and the eye gel and use a spooly to brush the lashes. You can open your eyes slowly after it’s done.
These are the steps involved in getting an eyelash extension. Because it requires precision and care, it is recommended you get the extensions from a professional.
