How to Lash Difficult Lashes + How to Lash Inner Corners & Outer Corners
Artificial lashes can do wonders for your eyes, even in the absence of eyeliner or mascara (although I would never say no to false lashes and liner/mascara together.) Eyelash extensions look so striking and 2D that they elevate your eye makeup completely.
Lashing in the corners of the eyes can take them from a normal eye to a cat eye, or lashing the corners of the top and bottom eyes can make a more rounded, doe-eyed look. Let us give you some lash tips and tricks on how to make it easier to work with the corners and how to lash difficult lashes.
How to lash Inner Corners?
To lash inner corners, you need to start by applying a little bit of glue on the lash band. Then, position the lashes as close to the inner corner of your eye as possible. Finally, secure them in place with a few quick taps of your finger. Ensure the lash band is facing you and not away from your face.
How to lash Outer Corners?
To lash outer corners, you need to start by applying a little bit of glue on the lash band. Then, with your finger, press the lashes down with the curve of the lash band following the contour of your eye. Finally, secure them in place with a few quick taps of your finger.
Useful tips for lashing inner and outer corners
Tip 1: The key to lashing the inner corners of your eyes is using a really thin brush. This will help you get close to the lash line and allow you to apply the glue and lashes easier.
Tip 2: When you’re applying the volume lashes to the inner corner, start by placing them as nearer to the lash line as possible. After you glue them on, if you need you can always trim the lashes, so they fit better.
Tip 3: Tip for applying lashes to the outer corner: use smaller and shorter lashes to your advantage here–they’re easy to work with and won’t stick out so much, but they’ll still create a dramatic look.
Tip 4: Lashes in the outer corner can sometimes curl under a bit and stick to your lid if you don’t use a lash curler. Try using a lash curler before applying lashes or after you’ve applied lashes to get that nice upward curl.
Once you’ve mastered how to do professional eyelash extensions in the inner and outer corners of your eyes, it’ll be so easy to take your eye makeup up a notch! Get creative with your lashes and see how far you can go. You might be amazed at how attractive your eyes can look with just a bit of added drama.
How to hide lash extension gaps?
If you don’t want to wear falsies, or if your lashes are just a little bit sparse in some spots, there’s a quick and easy way to hide the gaps.
All you require is a dab of mascara!
To hide lash extension gaps:
- Start by applying a light layer of mascara to your lashes.
- Use a Q-tip or finger to smudge the mascara into the gaps between your extensions.
- Apply another layer of mascara to seal everything in place.
- If you have very sparse lashes, try using an eyelash primer before applying your mascara to your lashes.
- Apply a light layer of mascara first, then seal it with another layer using the smudging method.
- Use a Q-tip or finger to smudge the mascara into gaps between extensions.
- Start applying at the bottom of your lash line, and work your way up to prevent smudging.
Silly mistakes and how you can avoid them about inner and outer corners
Don’t throw away your tweezers!
Many beauty professionals advise against using a lash curler on lashes from the inner corner of the eye or above the eye altogether. While this may be applicable to some people, it doesn’t work for everyone. So, here is our opinion – there is no harm in trying if you have never done so before, but do be gentle.
Remember to use short strokes!
When applying mascara to the lashes on the inner corner of your eye, use short strokes instead of dragging the wand all the way across. This will help avoid smearing mascara and give you a more precise application. If you use an eyelash curler, curl or brush your lashes before applying mascara.
Don’t pull the skin too tight!
When applying makeup to both the inner and outer corners of the eyes, it is vital to use gentle strokes and avoid pulling the skin too tightly. If you do this, you may have uneven lines caused by the makeup and the skin.
There you have it! With these effective tips, you will be able to achieve beautiful lashes on both your inner and outer corners. And, remember, don’t worry if you make a mistake, – just use a Q-tip dipped in makeup remover to clean it up.
These techniques will help to hide the gaps between your eyelash extensions and make your false lashes last longer. Remember to use gentle strokes when applying mascara and primer and to avoid pulling the skin too tightly. With these useful tips, you will be able to achieve beautiful lashes on both your inner and outer corners in no time!
