Everything You Need to Know About Strip Lashes: How to Apply Them

If you're looking to add some extra oomph to your look, strip lashes may be the answer.

Strip lashes are faux lashes that can give you a fuller, more dramatic look in a matter of minutes. They are easy to apply and can be worn for any occasion. In this blog post, we'll teach you everything you need to know about strip lashes: from how to choose the right style for you to how to apply them perfectly every time. Let's get started!

What Are Strip Lashes?

A pre-made band of lashes is called a “strip lash.”  This band is applied to the upper lash line using a unique adhesive. The intention is to wear these for a special occasion or during the day but not sleep in them. Strip lashes are a cosmetic enhancement that can be applied each day during your beauty routine.

Strip lashes come in a variety of sizes, colors, and styles. You can find natural-looking strip lashes such as, 3D mink lashes, or more dramatic 3D faux volume strip lashes, 3D 25 MM lashes and 5D mink lashes. It all depends on your preference and the look you're going for.

How to Choose the Right Strip Lashes?

When choosing strip lashes, it's important to consider the shape of your eyes. For example, if you have hooded or downturned eyes, you'll want to choose a strip lash that is shorter in the outer corner and longer in the inner corner. This will help give your eyes a lift.

If you have round eyes, you'll want to choose a strip lash that is longer in the center and shorter on the sides. This will help to elongate your eyes and make them appear more oval-shaped. If you have almond-shaped eyes, any strip lash style will suit you.

But if you want to accentuate your already gorgeous eye shape, go for a strip lash that is longer on the outer corners. This will give you a sexy, cat-eye look.

It's also important to think about the occasion when planning to wear strip lashes. If you're looking for a more natural look, choose a similar style to your lash length and thickness. For a more dramatic look, go for something longer and fuller.

How to Apply Strip Lashes

Now that you know how to choose the right strip lashes, it's time to learn how to apply them. The first step is to measure the strip lash against your eye and trim it down if necessary. If you need to trim the lash, make sure to trim it from the outer edge. Then, apply a thin line of lash adhesive along the strip band. Wait 30 seconds for the glue to become tacky before applying the strip lash to your upper lash line. Use tweezers, a lash applicator, or your fingers to gently press down on the strip lash and hold it in place for a few seconds.

Pro tip: Using a blow dryer to blow your lashes after the glue is applied will cause the adhesive to dry, just a bit-creating that perfect tacky-ness for the lash to stick.

P.S. If you don't want to use lash glue, you may use a lash paste liner to line the top of your upper lash line and apply the lash immediately.

And that's it! You've successfully applied your strip lashes and are ready to take on the day (or night). See video tutorial below.

How To Remove Strip Lashes?

When it's time to take off your strip lashes, be sure to use a gentle oil-based remover. Soak a cotton ball in the remover and hold it over your closed eye for 30 seconds. This will help to loosen the adhesive. Then, gently peel off the strip lash starting from the outer corner of your eye. Repeat this process until all of the strip lashes have been removed.
