Ready to embrace the world of classic lash extensions? You're in for a treat! With a little practice, you'll be flaunting those stunning lashes like a pro. Follow this easy step-by-step guide to achieve a beautiful, natural look that will have everyone guessing your secret.

Let's get started!

1: Gather Your Supplies

Round up your Libra lash - an excellent classic lash extension, along with a lash applicator, bond & seal, and a mirror. Locate a cozy, well-lit area and prepare to captivate with your charm.

2: Prepare Your Lashes

Let's kick things off by giving your lashes a refreshing cleanse and waving goodbye to any lingering traces of makeup. This magical act sets the stage for your extensions to adhere flawlessly. Keep in mind, a touch of prep paves the way for lash perfection!

3: The Application Process

  1. Pick Up the Lash: Using your fingertip, carefully swipe the lash clusters out of the lash box.

  2. Apply the Bond: Apply a thin coat of bond beneath your natural lash, similar to how you'd apply mascara.
  3. Placement Matters: Position the lash extension close to your natural lash line, but not directly on the skin. We want to aim for a seamless blend between the extension and your natural lashes.
  4. Time to Lash: Hold your lash using the lash applicator and gently place the extension beneath your natural lash. It should stick right to the bond.

  5. Work Your Way: Continue this process. You can start from the outer corner and work your way in for a balanced look.

  6. Lock Your Lash in Place: After applying all the lash clusters you can now lock your lashes in place with the Seal. Apply a small amount of the Seal is key, because it locks your lashes in place for up to 7+ days.

4: Final Touches and Aftercare

Remember, aftercare is key to maintaining those gorgeous classic lash extensions. After all the above, avoid getting them wet for the first 24 hours and steer clear of oil-based products that could weaken the adhesive.

Common Mistakes to Avoid for a Naturally Stunning Classic Lash Extension Look

Brace yourself, because we're about to dive into the land of common mistakes to avoid!

1: The Over-Extension Extravaganza

Overloading your lashes with extensions can result in a heavy, unnatural look that's more drama than your favorite soap opera. Stick to a moderate number of extensions for a delicate charm.

2: The One-Size-Fits-All Illusion

Choosing extensions that are too long or too thick can lead to that "spidery" effect that's more Halloween than everyday glam. Opt for varying lengths and styles to mimic your natural lash pattern.

3: The Hasty Adhesive Application

Picture this:Extensions sticking out at odd angles, adhesive gobs, and a general mess. Take your time with each extension, because – bond, lash, seal, and repeat is everything!

4: The Sticky Situation

Adhesive bond overload is not your friend. Using too much adhesive bond not only results in visible globs but can also lead to extensions clumping together like they're at a party. A tiny coat is all you need for a seamless bond.

5: The Bonding Fiasco

Extensions that bond to your skin instead of your natural lashes? That's a big no-no. Ensure that each extension is properly attached to your natural lash, not your eyelid or the neighboring lashes.

6: The Cleaning Conundrum

Cleanliness is lashiness, but over-cleaning is not. Rubbing your eyes vigorously or using oil-based cleansers can loosen extensions and wreak havoc on your hard work. Opt for a gentle cleanser and a light touch.

In Conclusion

Congratulations, you've just graduated from the school of classic lash extension pitfalls! By avoiding these common mistakes, you're well on your way to rocking that natural yet captivating lash look. Remember, patience and practice are your allies – a dash of caution here, a sprinkle of expertise there, and you'll be batting those beautifully classic lashes with confidence!
