Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash Extensions
From LoveToKnow Makeup
For certain extra drama to your evening look, try eyelash extensions for instants. Although false eyelashes can be a little tricky to apply, they are fun to wear and add a distinctive dimension to your appearance on those extra special occasions. Natural eyelash growth can be difficult to enhance, but extensions can give you the lush lashes that mother nature didn't.
Types of Eyelash Extensions
False eyelashes are available in three types: full set strip, separate flares, or individual strands.
Strip Lashes
These are pre-made eyelash extensions in an attached strip. They are the most noticeable type and provide a flirtatiously fake appearance. Best for an evening look, they tend to be the easiest to use and offer the quickest application.
Separate Flares
More natural looking than the strips, they tend to be smaller and shorter. A halfway version between the longer strips and the individual lashes, they can be used to add a subtle flare to your lash line or combined for an allover eyelash extension.
Individual Strands
The most natural type of eyelash extension, they provide a similar concept to a hair extension for your locks. Individual strands are often used in mascara ads to create a lush and longer lash appearance for the models. They are applied directly to your existing lashes to lengthen and add volume. For the most natural appearance, choose a mix of brown and black colors.
How to Apply
The following is a detailed step-by-step process of application for eyelash extensions. Keep in mind that false eyelash techniques take ample patience, practice and manual dexterity.
Before Application
After purchasing your first set of false eyelashes, no matter what type you have chosen, you will need to trim the length. You can opt to have them professionally trimmed or do the cutting yourself. To trim them at home, start by placing them lightly over the top of your lashes to measure the length you desire. With a sharp set of cuticle scissors, lightly cut the ends to the right length. Check against your lashes and cut more if necessary.
Step One
Apply a thin line of eyeliner pencil along your lash line where you intend to place your false eyelashes. This line can be used as a guide when applying and will hide any skin that may not be covered completely by the lash strip.
Step Two
Place a small amount of the eyelash glue on the back of your hand – waterproof glue is available for a more secure seal. Pick up the lash strip, flare or individual lashes with a tweezers and dip into the glue. Always let the glue dry for approximately 15 – 30 seconds before applying the false eyelashes to your eyes.
Looking straight at the mirror, you will want to begin placing the eyelash extensions along the base of your lashes corresponding to the place in your eye where the color starts. Always begin at the outer edge of your eye, working your way in. Place the fake lashes as close to your natural lash line as possible. If using individual lashes, continue applying until you have reached your desired level of fullness. For a strip or flare, be sure to secure the edges of the strips within your own lashes.
After you have pressed the lashes along your eyelids, keep your eyes closed for approximately sixty seconds while gently pressing onto the glued ends. During this period while the glue is being set, you can also lightly hold the false eyelashes upright toward the eyebrows to encourage them to open up the eyes.
Step Three
Always add mascara after you have completed the gluing process. Apply a coat on each side of your lashes to help the fake and real blend together. Defining mascara is the best choice as it separates the lashes and creates the most natural look. Finally, add liquid eyeliner along the base of your lashes to hide the seam.
Removal
When removing your eyelash extensions, always be gentle. Start with a dab of eye makeup remover on a cotton swab. Gently tap the swab at the base of the lashes to loosen the glue. Lightly pull off each strand or the strip of false eyelashes. Clean your false eyelashes with the eye makeup remover making sure that all the glue and mascara has been removed. As they can be reused, it is important that eyelash extensions receive a thorough cleaning and are stored in a secure case.


Remember that as a sissy you need to look your best. Eyes are an important part of

that look.  This is especially true 
when you are kneeling, for whatever purpose at the

feet of your owner. Your owner will often look down at you and you up into each

other's eyes. Make sure what they see is a very pretty sight!
