What are False Eyelashes or Eyelash extensions 

Eyelash extensions are often used to increase the length, curliness, fullness, and thickness of natural eyelashes. The eyelash extensions available on the market may be made from several materials including mink, synthetic, or horse hair. The main method used in the application of the lash extensions is by using an adhesive glue to individually stick the extensions to the eyelash line. The use of temporary false eyelashes are applied with temporary lash glue, and are not designed to be worn when showering, sleeping or swimming as the glue can lose its adhesiveness. The lashes  often come as individuals, clusters, and lash strips to provide consumers choice when thinking of buying false eyelash extensions. The history of extending eye follicles date back to the 1800's and since then they have gained a rapid and die hard consumer fan base who pride themselves on how their eyes look.   

Why use false Eyelashes

The reasons as to why someone would wish to extend their eyelashes are myriad but often it will come down to the end factor of how they make you look and how that subsequently makes you feel as a result. People often want more volume and lift from their existing eyelashes and by using a set of falsies they can get the desired look they have always wanted but perhaps have not been able to achieve with their own natural lashes. 

False lashes can help with creating shape and adding drama to the eyes, alongside the added benefit of adding definition and filling out your own natural lashes that may be too sparse or short. They can place greater emphasis on your eyes and draw attention to that particular area. They can also be a wonderful alternative to mascara if you don’t like using it, have allergies or just plain cant be bothered to apply it all the time. False lashes also add excitement and an element of dressing up to everyday stale and boring lashes. Using lashes can also play a large part in your overall confidence as it makes you feel youthful and daring and frankly these days something that makes you feel good should not be overlooked (ha). if you have been feeling like changing your look up, start small but make a bold statement. who knows it mat be the start of a confident new you!

Patch Testing your Lash Adhesive

Patch testing your lash glue is a test you should carry out in the comfort of your own home to make sure that you do not have any unwanted reactions to your eyelash strip lashes. There are two different methods of doing patch test for your Lamore lashes Extensions Glue.The first test is done by applying a small amount of the glue / adhesive to the last 3 lashes of your eye on the outer corner and second test is done by applying a drop of glue on skin behind the ear. We advise that you do both methods of the patch test below, prior to using the lashes, which is applying the glue to 3 lashes on outer corners of the eyes and the behind the ear test. If any irritation occurs rinse the area thoroughly with cold water for several minutes to remove the product completely. If irritation persists please seek medical attention.

Method one: Applying the lashes on outer corners:

Apply a small amount of glue to just three eyelashes at the outer corners of each eye and allow 24 hours to see if any reaction was caused. If no adverse reaction occurs, then you should be fine to use the strip lashes.

Method Two: Dropping glue on skin behind the ear:

This second method is easier and quicker than the first, all you need to do is drop a small amount ( 1 drop) of each adhesive. Drop right behind the ear, on the lower side, as this is a very sensitive area and allow 24 hours to see if any reaction was caused

Individual Lash Removal

Strip Lashes and cluster eyelashes are usually applied with a temporary fixing glue, mostly latex-based in nature, so they are not as waterproof as lash extensions. To remove your lashes, soak a cotton pad in an no chemical oil-based makeup remover or coconut oil, baby oil or olive oil if wanting to go truly natural. Hold the cotton pad over your closed eye for about 20 seconds to help loosen the glue. Repeat this as necessary up to several times until the lash strip or eyelash clusters loosen enough to lift away without pulling your the skin. If you have excess residue, swipe a cotton swab dipped in oil over your lash line. Be gentle and have patience with this for the best results.
