From Natural to Dramatic: Unleash Your Inner Drama Queen With Individual Eyelashes

You're at this outrageous party. You see someone with the most gorgeous eyelashes you've ever seen across the room. They're long, thick, curled perfectly, and complement a beautiful, dramatic look. You want to know how she achieved such lashes, so you approach her and ask. She tells you she's wearing individual eyelashes. Interesting.

One common challenge people have when they don't know how to achieve the perfect lashes is that they end up with clumpy, unnatural-looking lashes. Another common challenge is that people find it difficult to apply the lashes themselves and often have uneven or misplaced lashes. Lastly, people often struggle to maintain their lashes, resulting in premature shedding or breakage.

If you're struggling with these challenges, don't worry - you're not alone. Keep reading to learn more about individual lashes, the different types available, and how to apply them for the best results.

The Benefits of Individual Eyelashes

Aside from looking like a goddess, there are many perks to giving some extra lashes to your sad eyes. 

Natural Oomph

Strip lashes are a band of adhesive fake lashes that you can easily apply to your natural eyelashes. It's great for beginners, but if you want that natural look, we highly suggest that you go for single lashes. 

Less Time to Prepare, More Time to Party

We're not all celebs or models here. Most of us are nine-to-five workers, athletes, and moms who don't have the time to get up early to put on some mascara or strip lashes. Individual lash extensions can give you that glamorous look in the morning oh-so effortlessly. 

Self-Confidence Boost

It increases your self-confidence, whether for special occasions or just everyday wear. Honestly, you would feel like you're ready to strut the hallways at your home whenever you would wake up with these beautiful lashes. 

Types of Individual Lashes

One of the most important things to consider when choosing individual lashes is the type of lash you want. There are two main types of individual lashes: natural-looking and dramatic. And these types are made of different synthetic fibers or animal fur. So yes, individual lashes are like a lovely fur coat for your eyes. 

Natural-Looking Individual Lashes

These individual fake eyelashes are created to look like your own lashes. Natural lash extensions are made mostly from animal furs such as mink, sable, and fox. However, lash manufacturers have gotten more creative with lashes by creating faux-mink and faux-fox. It's due to cost and ethical reasons. 

You could start with classic natural lash extensions if you're a newbie to fake lashes. But we both know you wanted that super bodacious RuPaul eyelashes. 

Dramatic Individual Lashes

These individual false eyelashes give you a bold, glamorous look. They're often longer and thicker than natural-looking lashes, and they come in a variety of colors to suit your style.

Unlike natural-looking lashes, these lashes are entirely made of silk or mink. It's worth remembering that silk lash extensions are heavier and not as comfortable as other individual lash materials. So if you want more affordable and luscious lashes than animal fur, volume lashes are made with synthetic fibers. Imagine those alluring lashes on you. Worth it!

Types of Dramatic Lash Extensions 

It's time to choose what lashes would look great at any party. Dramatic lashes, also known as volume lashes, differ in volume. In addition, you can choose 2D and higher lash options. The number means the number of extensions applied to one natural lash. 

3D Lash Extension

Also known as the Russian Volume, these lash extensions are the most popular dramatic lashes. The lash tech will apply three or more lashes longer than natural lash extensions. As a result, you would have a thick, evenly arched lash line, with lashes that spread out like a fabulous fan. 

Many lash techs report having 3D lash extensions last longer than classic extensions. It is also great for people with sparse lashes. 

Mega Volume Lash Extension

Do you want to go crazy with lash extensions? Then, we introduce you to the mega volume lashes. Lash technicians don't just apply 6D lashes but 16 lashes with more than 0.05 mm thickness. This eyelash extension truly lives up to its name, "Mega."

Hybrid Lash Extension

Your work and lifestyle might not let you have a full-blown drama queen look. But you still want to feel glamorous. Hybrid lashes are just perfect for you. These lash extensions combine two lash extensions: (70%) Volume and (30%) Classic. As a result, you will have longer, textured lashes like Madonna in her sassy music video "Material Girl."

Applying Individual Lashes Yourself

Individual lashes are a great way to achieve long, thick, and curled eyelashes. But if you don't know how to apply them, you'll look like those wide-eyed baby dolls in the 80s. Many lash extension services are readily available to transform you into a true queen. So here's a step-by-step guide to help you apply your lashes like a pro:

Cleanse Your Face

Removing the dirt and oil from your natural eyelashes will make your lash extensions stay as long. Plus, it will prevent you from having any infection. 

After washing your face, use a spoolie brush to separate your lashes to avoid clumps. Then, dry your lashes completely. 

Prep Your Stuff

You'd need eyelash glue, a sanitized pair of tweezers, and your false lashes. We recommend that you put some glue lash into a dish or some tin foil so you can easily glue and apply.

When you use your tweezers, carefully lift the lashes at the bulb of the lash cluster as they might misshape or damage your lashes. 

Stick, Position, and Hold

After gently picking up your lash cluster, put a thin layer of glue onto the tip and wait for it to become tacky. Then, place the eyelash onto your existing lashes, making sure it blends and looks natural. Again, it's crucial to hold the cluster in place to stick very well to your eyelid.

Repeat Until Full Glam

Put as many lashes as you like to get that yassified look you've always wanted. The more lashes and the more volume, the more confident you become entering any party. Also, make sure that the lash extensions on your eye match your other eye. 

Don't Get Them Wet

Wait for 24 hours before washing your face. Avoid crying or getting under the rain with your new lashes. You don't want to have falling eyelashes in the middle of your wedding. 

Tips for Maintaining Your Lashes

If you want your thick lashes to look their best, it's important to take care of them to last longer and keep your real ones healthy. Here are some tips for maintaining your lush lashes:

Clean Your Lashes Regularly

A mild cleanser is enough, but foaming cleansers are specially made for your lashes. You can also apply a lash serum before going to sleep if you feel extra confident. 

Be Gentle on Your Lashes

When removing your makeup or washing your face, avoid tugging your lashes or rubbing your eyes. Even when sleeping, it's important not to sleep on your lashes. It will damage both your lash extensions and real lashes.

Avoid Using Oil-Based Products Near Your Lashes

Your volumized lashes are only glued to your eyelids. Oil-based skincare might weaken your eyelash glue, and you would have to come in for infill appointments or do it all over again soon. 

We can guarantee a longer lifespan for your captivating queen lashes by following these tips:
