What are segmented eyelashes?
Segmented eyelashes are a type of artificial eyelashes that are typically available in small fragments or in the form of small groups of lash bundles, rather than in a full strip. This design makes it easier to position and precisely adhere segmented lashes to specific areas of natural lashes. It allows for fine adjustments in different areas of the eyes, resulting in a more personalized and natural effect. Segmented eyelashes can be used to enhance the contour of the eyes and add density to the lashes. They can also be used during the transitional phase of eyelash extensions to fill in gaps and create a more uniform and natural overall look.
Now, let's learn how to apply cluster lashes.
Is it easier to apply segmented lashes?
Applying segmented lashes can yield a more realistic and better makeup effect, but the process can be a bit more challenging.
If you want the false lashes to look more natural, you can evenly trim the false lashes into three segments and then apply them to the positions of the outer corner, middle, and inner corner of the eyes.
Since eyes naturally have a curvature, many people find it difficult to control this curve, which can lead to issues like the inner corner of the lashes coming unglued or leaving gaps. Applying lashes in segments can provide a better fit with your natural lashes and make it easier to manage the curvature.
How to apply segmented lashes?
False lashes, scissors, lash tweezers, lash adhesive, lash curler, partial lash curler, cotton swab.
Begin by ensuring that your eye makeup is already done, including applying eyeliner and curling your natural lashes with an eyelash curler.
Select the appropriate length of segmented lashes. Segmented lashes can be divided into sections based on different areas of the eyes, such as the outer corner, middle, and inner corner. You can trim or adjust the length of the segments according to your needs.
Start by applying the first segment of the segmented lashes. Apply a small amount of lash adhesive to the base of the false lashes and gently press them onto the roots of your natural lashes, starting from either the outer corner or middle.
Once the first segment is applied, proceed to apply the next segment in sequence. Ensure they adhere closely without noticeable gaps. If the distance between two segments is not close enough, you can gently adjust it with a pointed cotton swab while the adhesive is not completely dry.
After completing the application, use the lash curler again to integrate your natural lashes with the segmented lashes, ensuring they are curled and well-adhered.
Finally, you can use a partial lash curler to further curl the segments at the inner corner of the eyes, allowing them to blend seamlessly with your natural lashes.
Segmented lashes come in various types
Multi-layer segmented lashes
These can create a dramatic effect for occasions like weddings or parties. Makeup artists in fashion shows even apply up to three layers of segmented lashes for a doubled-up effect. To blend two layers of lashes seamlessly, start by curling them with an eyelash curler and then apply mascara.
Full strip lashes
These should be applied along the entire lash line. Before application, trim them to the appropriate length. If the lashes are too long, you can use scissors to trim off the excess. Once everything is ready, apply lash adhesive to the base of the full strip lashes, starting from the middle and then pressing down the ends. It's important to note that false lashes should not be placed too close to the inner corner of the eye to avoid irritation. If you fail in your first attempt, try applying a small amount of lash adhesive to the misplaced area of the eyelid and then place the false lashes.
Cluster lashes in single bunches
These are divided into small clusters, with 3 to 5 individual lashes per cluster. They provide a natural look while adding density to the lashes. When applying, simply apply lash adhesive to the base of the cluster, wait for 15 to 30 seconds until the adhesive becomes tacky, and then press it onto the roots of your natural lashes. Close your eyes and let it dry for a few seconds, then continue applying. Try to apply it on the outer side of the lash line. Once all the cluster lashes are dry, adjust their curl to match your natural lashes, and finally apply mascara.
Segment lashes for the outer corner
If you find that applying single cluster lashes takes too much time but still want to add a playful touch to your smoky eye makeup, simply apply these segmented lashes to the outer corners of the eyes. While their effect is similar to other types, lashes for the outer corners have a structure more akin to full strip lashes, just a bit shorter. Gently curve the lashes for the outer corners along the natural curve of your lashes, ensuring they adhere to the eyelid like your real lashes.
In summary, segmented lashes are a type of artificial eyelashes that come in small fragments or small clusters of lash bundles. They are designed to be easier to position and adhere precisely to specific areas of natural lashes, allowing for fine adjustments in different areas of the eyes. This results in a more personalized and natural effect. Segment lashes can be used to enhance the contour of the eyes and add density to the lashes, as well as during the transitional phase of eyelash extensions to fill in gaps, creating a more uniform and natural overall look.
When applying segmented lashes, it's important to first complete your eye makeup, including eyeliner and curling your natural lashes. Then, select the appropriate length of segmented lashes and trim them if necessary. Apply lash adhesive to the base of each segment and press them onto the roots of your natural lashes. Ensure they adhere closely without noticeable gaps. Use an eyelash curler to integrate your natural lashes with the segmented lashes, and use a partial lash curler for additional curling at the inner corner of the eyes.
There are various types of segmented lashes, including multi-layer segmented lashes for a dramatic effect, full strip lashes for applying along the entire lash line, cluster lashes in single bunches for a natural look with added density, and segmented lashes for the outer corners to add a playful touch to smoky eye makeup.
Overall, choosing the right application method for segmented lashes can result in a more natural and refined makeup look.
