Accent Lashes – Your Ultimate Guide
If you are new to false eyelashes, or require the most natural-looking enhancement possible, then accent lashes are the perfect option to try. Accent lashes are designed to offer a little extra length and volume to each outer corner of your eye, rather than offering a consistent length and volume all the way along the lash line like standard fake eyelashes.
Corner lashes are slightly easier to apply than full strip lashes, as they simply need to be pressed into place towards the outer edge of your eye, rather than having to ensure both corners are firmly pressed down, and the entire lash band is as close to the lash line as possible.
Here at FalseEyelashes.co.uk, we sell a variety of accent lashes from Ardell and Eylure. Our most popular lashes are the Ardell accent lashes 318.
What you will need
How to apply accent lashes
Applying accent lashes is fairly straightforward and is very similar to the process of applying standard, full strip lashes. It is, however, important to ensure they are positioned correctly to achieve the most seamless blend possible for a natural look.
Apply mascara to your natural lashes as normal, starting with one coat and repeating depending on personal preference.
Once the mascara has dried, gently peel the accent lash from the tray using tweezers or a lash applicator.
Apply a thin layer of lash adhesive to the lash band and wait approximately 45 seconds for it to go tacky.
Position the accent lash towards the outer edge of your eye, and place it as close to your natural lash line as possible.
Use the lash applicator or tweezers to adjust the lash into place, ensuring to press the inner and outer corners down.
Gently ‘squeeze’ your natural lashes and the accent lash together to create a seamless blend.
