They come in several forms; full sets and single lashes are most common. Single ones may be great if you want to fill in a few spotty areas on the lash line, and they tend to create a more natural look. Full sets are placed just above to make them look thicker and longer. Lengths of these can vary too, with exceptionally long ones for dramatic statements and shorter ones meant to look more natural.
A few false eyelash styles are meant to look very false. They can be colored bright pink or blue, have glitter, or be so long they simply can’t be real. These might be appropriate for costume makeup.
They can be made out of real human hair or they can be made from various synthetic materials or from silk. Generally, synthetic ones are less expensive. If an eyelash set doesn’t come with the necessary glue, you’ll need to buy glue to attach them. Most cosmetics experts recommend you purchase the same brand glue, since they are usually formulated to work together best.
Applying them is something of a learning process. It is easiest if you don’t apply the glue directly to your eyes but instead to the attachment point. Using a toothpick or needle to apply glue helps so you can place a fine line of glue without making them too sticky. Once you’ve added the glue, place them, usually above the natural lash, and adjust as needed. They won’t immediately adhere, so you have a few seconds to make an adjustment or to remove them if you don’t like the look.
Some people recommend placing mascara on your natural lashes before applying them. This can help the false eyelashes adhere to the natural lash. If you don’t want the drama of extra thick ones, consider using single ones to give a more natural look. Whether adding a set or a lash, once adhered to the skin, don’t pull them off. Most companies sell remover that will help you remove the false pieces when you wish, without pulling out some of your own in the process.
Extensions are any number of enhancements designed to add length, thickness and fullness to natural ones. They may be compared to hair extensions for one's. They can be separated into two types: temporary and semi-permanent. There is also a medical way of enhancing them.
Temporary false lashes are designed to be worn for a short period; a day or less. They can be made with human hair, or with synthetic materials. This is made to feel and behave like real human hair. They are not designed to be worn when showering, sleeping or swimming. They are applied with glue designed specifically for temporary ones. Permanent ones, also known as eyelash extensions, are the ones applied with a stronger adhesive. Generally, a single lash is applied to each natural lash; when applied properly, neither the extension nor the glue should touch the eyelid. The bond is designed to last until they naturally fall out, though the extensions may fall out faster if one uses oil-based eye makeup remover or rubs eyes regularly.
For both types, eyelashes come in various lengths, colors and thicknesses, from natural-looking to outrageous. Eyelash implants is another way of achieving lengthier and thicker ones.
