Strip Lashes vs. Segmented Lashes: What's the difference:

Segmented Lashes:

Lash segments are the new false lash trend in beauty, and they're all about precision. With their flexibility and ease of use, lash segments offer more control than traditional false strip lashes. They’re cut into 4 smaller parts, which make it easy for you to shape and create a unique look with precision - never before has there been such convenience! This makes them the perfect option for your at home DIY eyelash extensions, and when you do the DIY lash segments at home they will save you so much time! 

False Strip Lashes:

It's no surprise that strip lashes are by far the most popular false eyelashes on today’s market. They offer a natural and comfortable fit for any eye shape, making them perfect if you're looking to enhance your best features without going too overboard with makeup or adding too much drama in one go! They come in one size which can be fitted and trimmed to fit any eye shape, and are a pre-styled false eyelash which is applied to your entire top lash line with false lash glue or lash adhesive. 

Strip lashes are affordable, removable and can be reapplied at any time. They are easily applied at home and are simple to remove after your night out. Quality strip lashes like Luviri’s best false eyelashes, are lashes that are attached to a fabric band. They are handmade with love using the highest grade, feather-light synthetic silk, and wear the most comfortably.

When it comes to the best false eyelashes australia (Luviri’s false strip lashes, obviously), they can be pre-cut into 4 segments with their varied length, shape and volume. When it comes to girls loving DIY lashes at home, segmented lashes are the best choice.

DIY Lash Extensions: are they really sleep proof:

DIY eyelash extensions kit works in the exact same way as your traditional lash extensions. So, sleep proofing is possible but you will still need to put some at home practices into it for best results! 

Are you a “sleep face down” kinda girl?

Well you won’t be anymore! The new trend in sleeping is all about side and back sleeping. Because of the friction from sleeping face down, it can cause the lashes to pull unevenly which gives an unnatural look for each eye and your lash extensions can end up curling. Yeah no thanks! If you know that this is undeniably inevitable, there are Lash Extension Sleep Masks that you wear while you're sleeping, which will keep even the most dedicated eyelash extension wearer well put together in bed. For the love of those crush-free and perfectly placed lashes every night!

Step 3: Time To Bond:

Holy smokes, you must be ready for the big leagues! Congratulations on lash mapping and pre-cutting your Kirby lashes into individual lash segments. Now it’s time to Bond. 

On the underpart of your top lashes apply a thin layer of bond focusing on the roots of your natural lashes. Apply 1-2 mm away from the roots and ¾ of the way up. Wait 50-60 seconds for the bond to start going tacky before applying your segments.

Step 4: Apply Lash Segments:

Using your Easy Grip Lash Applicator, start applying your lash segments from the outer and work your way to the inner part of your eye.
