Eyelash extensions generally hold true to their shape and level of curl. But sometimes you want a little more curl in one spot, a little less in another to get just the right look. Ensuring that your lashes are curved up and outward from your eyes will make them look as big and bright as possible.
The number one thing to remember is to make sure that you DO NOT use a metal crimp style eyelash curler. They are not gentle enough to be used with extensions, and the pressure can wreak havoc on the attachment bonds. Metal curlers can damage your natural lashes as well; if you aren’t gentle enough, it can tear lashes out at the root (scary).
A heated, wand style eyelash curler is the best way to curl your extensions. They give a precise curl by heating the lash from root to tip. There are several different ones on the market, but our favourite is from Xtreme Lashes. It applies a long lasting curl through gentle heat and will not damage your lashes. It also smoothes mascara and guides your lashes into place with it’s gentle comb.
It takes about fifteen seconds to heat up once you turn it on and then you simply place the comb on the lash line just above lashes and gently lift to comb lashes into the shape you want like a mascara brush. Hold for a few second and repeat across the lashline until you get the look you like.
How to use it:
1. Turn on the wand, it heats up in 15 seconds
2. Hold the wand on the lash line just above lashes
3. Gently and slowly lift to comb lashes into the shape you want, like a mascara brush
4. Hold for a few second and repeat across the lashline until your curl looks just right
5. Bat your lashes and have a fabulous day!
