Carried out in a beauty salon, this method has many advantages, including widening your eyes for a guaranteed doe-eye effect. But, how does a natural eyelash extension session take place? We take stock in this article.
What is an eyelash extension?
Lash to eyelash is a technique which consists of attaching an extension, generally made of microfiber, to your natural eyelash with a special glue . No contact with the eyelid skin is necessary, which significantly reduces the risk of skin allergies. The shape and size of these extensions can be personalized according to your tastes and the desired result. For a larger volume, this number can even go up to 100 extensions per eye . This is particularly the case with Russian volume eyelash extensions , operating more or less on the same principle as eyelash-to-eyelash extensions. This technique allows you, in fact, to obtain a volume up to 8 times greater than that which you have naturally.
What are the different eyelash extension techniques?
There are different types of extensions and installation, to suit all needs. Unlike Russian volume, where a bouquet of synthetic eyelashes is applied to a natural eyelash, eyelash to eyelash application consists of applying only one eyelash each time. Several poses exist:
- Natural application: we apply a synthetic eyelash every 3 natural eyelashes
- The refined application: we attach a synthetic eyelash every 2 natural eyelashes
- Sophisticated application: an extension is placed on each natural eyelash, except for small or weakened eyelashes
Eyelash extensions are not to be confused with Russian volume eyelash extensions, which aim to give much more volume and intensity to the eyes thanks to the application of very fine to extra fine clumps of eyelashes.
