Nonetheless, both eyelash extensions and fake eyelashes provide the same effect which is giving your eyelashes a longer, volumised and lifted appearance effortlessly.
Types of false lashes
- Individuals: Individuals give a subtle boost of fullness, where the fake lashes are available in a set of strands. This allows for easier customization as you can choose to add them on certain areas along your lash line
- Cluster: You can think of clustered false lashes as a collection of individuals. They are not as long as strips that are applied all along the lash line. Rather, they come in smaller pieces that are easier to control, making them ideal for beginners or those looking for customizable pieces.
- Strips: False lashes in the form of strips are probably the kind that you will encounter most often. Just like its name, they come in a strip with stands of lashes attached to them and can be applied directly onto your lash line in just one step.
How to use Korean false eyelashes?
Korean fake eyelashes commonly come inside a plastic casing that can be opened and shut to seal out bacteria and moisture. Start by first measuring measure the strip against your actual eyelid and trim off any excess. If your fake lashes come with glue or adhesive, you can skip this next step and apply it as close as possible to your natural lash line.
If your false eyelashes do not have adhesive, use lash glue along the rim and let it dry a little before wearing it. You can use a pair of tweezers or any other makeup tool of your choice for easier application or your fingertips. To give a natural-looking finish, use a liquid eyeliner to conceal the fake lashes strip, and curl your lashes carefully using an eyelash curler to ensure that it fits perfectly with your natural eyelashes.
Can false eyelashes be reused?
Unlike other makeup tools and accessories like makeup puff and sponge or brushes, false eyelashes are designed to adhere to your lash line for long durations, and since it is very close to the eye, hygiene is a top priority. The question of how many times can false eyelashes be used is a common question that comes up every now and then.
The answer to this will depend largely on the material of the fake eyelashes that you are using. In general synthetic fake eyelashes can last for about 3 uses if they are stored and cleaned properly after each use. It is not recommended to use them more than 3 times as they begin to degrade and lose their shape. If you are using fake eyelashes made of natural hair, they tend to last much longer, giving you more than 10 uses with proper care and cleaning.
To keep your false lashes clean and longer-lasting, ensure that you take them off before going to bed. To properly clean your false lashes, use a cotton bud or q-tip that has been soaked in micellar water and gently wipe it along the last strip to remove any dirt before storing it in its case.
