Achieving a flawless lash look isn’t just about choosing the right style, it’s also crucial to ensure a perfect fit. Measuring strip lashes to match your unique eye shape ensures comfort and a natural appearance. In this blog, we’ll walk you through the steps to measure strip lashes accurately for a customised and seamless fit.
1. Gather Your Tools:
Start by gathering the tools you’ll need – a pair of our strip lashes, small scissors, and lash adhesive. Make sure the lashes are clean and free of any residue.
2. Trimming the Lash Band:
Lay the strip lash along your lash line without adhesive. Take note of any excess length on either end. Trim the lash band from the outer edge to fit your eye shape, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit.
3. Adjust Inner and Outer Corners:
Some strip lashes have longer lengths at the outer corners for a flattering, elongated effect. If needed, trim a small section at the outer edge to maintain balance and prevent discomfort.
4. Check the Inner Corner Length:
Assess the length of the lashes at the inner corner. Ideally, the lashes should start where your natural lashes begin. Trim any excess length from the inner corner to ensure a seamless blend with your natural lashes.
5. Consider Lash Placement:
Examine your natural lash line and the curvature of your eyes. The strip lashes should follow the natural shape of your eyes. If the lashes are too straight or too curved, adjust the trimming accordingly to achieve a harmonious fit.
6. Measure Both Eyes Separately:
It’s common for the width of one eye to be slightly different from the other. Measure and trim each strip lash separately, customising the fit for each eye to achieve a symmetrical and balanced look.
7. Test the Fit:
Before applying adhesive, place the trimmed lash strip along your lash line to ensure a perfect fit. Check for any discomfort or lifting at the corners. Adjust as needed to guarantee a secure and comfortable application.
8. Apply Adhesive Carefully:
Once you’re satisfied with the fit, apply a thin, even layer of lash adhesive along the strip lash band. Allow the adhesive to become tacky before carefully placing the lashes onto your natural lash line. We recommend Duo glue which is available to purchase on our website.
9. Press and Secure:
After placing the lashes, use a tool like tweezers or your fingertips to gently press the strip lashes onto your natural lashes. Ensure that both the inner and outer corners are secure and aligned with your eye shape.
