In previous articles, we have mentioned that the way we make up our eyes and the effect we achieve is very important since it is what gives the expression to our face.
To achieve an impact look, eyelashes play a very important role, some prefer to create an effect of greater length, others of more volume and if you are like your goal is to create both, which you can do with your favorite mascara or better yet. With the application of magnetic eyelashes.
This type of ‘false lashes’ began to take hold a couple of years ago and has several advantages such as greater hygiene since it does not require the use of glue, you can use them on multiple occasions and they have a more affordable cost than eyelash extensions.
If you are interested in learning how to use and apply them step by step, then I recommend that you keep reading.
What are magnetic eyelashes, and what are they made of?
This type of false eyelash is generally handmade, based on silk and you can use them approximately 30 times, of course, they have 4 to 5 micro-magnets that allow them to stick with each other in your eyes, however, You may come across some brands that require the application of a gel with micro-magnets particles.
They come in a pack of two pairs since one row of the eyelashes is placed under the other so that they can be glued correctly, generally on the packaging it tells you which one is placed on top and which one is placed below.
And although they have much fewer contradictions than glue false eyelashes, you should be careful not to use them daily as they can damage yours.
How to apply magnetic eyelashes step by step?
1 – First mascara
Before starting the application of the magnetic eyelashes, you mustn’t forget to comb your lashes and apply at least one coat of mascara.
2 – Top lashes
And now the moment of truth, you can start placing the eyelashes, for this, you must make sure which is the strip of eyelashes that goes up and start by placing this strip first.
As we mentioned, it is very likely that on the packaging they indicate which is the upper part and which is the lower part.
3 – Bottom lashes
Once the top row is ready, you can begin applying the bottom row.
Place this strip just below the one you glued on top so the magnets can do their job and connect both rows.
It is important that both strips are placed as close to the root of your eyelashes as possible to achieve a more natural eye makeup effect and that they get lost with yours.
4 – Repeat the first steps
To finish your ‘look’ you can repeat the first three steps, in case you need to rearrange the eyelashes you can do it by taking them carefully from the corner and pulling them towards the place where you want to position them.
