Illustrations for Lash Star Beauty by: @deanna_first
False lashes are temporary lashes that you can adhere to your eyelid. They are attached to a band that you then attach to your eyelid. They come in different shapes and sizes to create the look you want for that day. At Lash Star, we have 10 unique styles of Visionary False Lashes and we also offer our Visionary Lash Flares, which are individual clusters.
Some false lashes use mink hair while others use synthetic fibers to create a natural look. Lash Star continues to take pride in every single product we bring to you, so therefore we stay away from mink lashes and lashes made from human hair. We believe that you can achieve eye catching looks without harming animals or using human hair. All of our lashes are vegan and cruelty free.
The cost of false lashes on the market can vary depending on the quality, look and feel of the lashes. With drugstore lashes, they may be on the more affordable side but you will only get 2-3 uses with each pair. Quality lashes, like our Lash Star Visionary Lash Collection allow you to reuse the lashes up to 25-30 times, as long as you care for them properly.
How do you apply False Lashes?
False lashes must be applied using a lash adhesive. You apply the lash adhesive to the band of the lashes. Our Visionary Lash Adhesive is latex free, goes on white and dries clear. This makes it one of the most sought after lash adhesives on the market. We also have a lash applicator tool that makes applying false lashes a lot easier than just using your fingers.
You can use false lashes anytime, anywhere. They are meant for convenience so you can take them off each night and reapply in the morning. You can also choose what type of lash look you are going for each time you apply false lashes. Learn how to clean false lashes so you get the most use out of them, while also keeping them sanitary!
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent lashes that are individually attached to your eyelashes by a licensed professional. Many different looks can be created with this method by using different lengths, thickness and techniques to achieve the look you are going for. You can go from adding length to adding volume to enhancing your eye shape with individual lashes. The cost of lash extensions can vary and tipping is part of service.
Depending on your lash cycle, lash extensions can last from 2 weeks to 4 weeks before needing to fill in the areas that are starting to shed along with your own lashes. Lash extensions will fall out on their own in about 6-8 weeks, so most people like to refill every few weeks. Lash extensions can compromise your own lashes and lead to the loss of your natural lashes.
DON’T: Don’t wet your lashes for the first 24 hours after your lash appointment. The lash adhesives usually take 12-24 hours to dry so you want to make sure you do not get your lashes wet.
DO: Once the lash extensions are on for 24 hours, you can then wash your lashes with the recommended cleanser your lash stylist has advised you to use. Certain ingredients can break down the bond of the adhesive so you want to make sure you only use the correct cleanser. If you are wearing eye makeup, only use oil-free makeup remover or makeup remover pads and gently wipe away your makeup while avoiding the lashes.
DON’T: Do not pick at your lashes or pull them out. If you need to remove them, whether you have an allergic reaction to the adhesive or because it feels uncomfortable or you just do not want them anymore, make an appointment with your stylist to get them professionally removed.
DO: Brush out your lashes with a spoolie. We recommend our Lash Styler Brush to tame the lashes that have moved while you were sleeping, while you were in the shower or just when they start to look like they have been on for a while.
DON’T: Do not wear mascara on your lash extensions because the ingredients in your mascara can actually weaken the bond of your lash extensions. Removing the mascara can also damage the lash extensions. If you do decide to wear eyeliner, stay away from cream based products since they have heavier oils that can affect the longevity of your lash extensions.
