I always recommend false lashes to my clients to enhance their eyes and their makeup look. False lashes are important to any makeup look for a variety of reasons. They may be used to change or enhance the shape of the eyes, to fill in sparse lashes for a more polished look, to create more definition in photos or to completely change or enhance any makeup look.
There are so many types of lashes to choose from and it can be a bit confusing which one is best for your look. These are the 3 most commonly used styles and why you should choose each one based on your desired look.
Individual lashes can be a single lash or a small cluster of lashes. They are available in different lengths and can be used for a very natural look or a dramatic look. With this style, the lashes are completely customized and can be built up in volume or length based on your desired look. This can be the most time consuming style or the fastest to apply depending on the application.
Half Lashes are made to enhance only the outer half of the lash line. They can give a lightweight feeling and a more natural look. These are easy to apply and provide a more almond-like shape to your eyes. This style can also be considered more sultry.
Strip Lashes are a full band of lashes that are applied to the entire length of your lash line. They are a fast and easy way to create different styles to your makeup look. They come in a variety of styles and lengths, and can be quite natural or dramatic. They even come in creative styles such as feathers, fun colors or may even have crystals on them. This type of false lash band typically requires trimming to properly fit your eye.
So whether you are going to dinner, a concert or getting married, consider wearing false lashes and have fun choosing different styles!
