Hey Bestie!


Are you ready to level up your lash game? Today, I'm going to spill the tea on how you can achieve fabulous eyelash extensions right at home. No more breaking the bank or waiting for appointments. It's time to take matters into our own hands! Let's dive into the world of DIY eyelash extensions using products you can get delivered at your door step with Amazon!


Step 1: Gather Your Supplies To get started, make sure you have the following items ready:

  • Beginner's Kit : KISS Lash Couture LuXtensions Collection 3D DIY Faux Lash Extensions Kit - This kit includes everything you need, including semi-permanent lash adhesive, adhesive remover, precision tweezers, a spoolie mascara wand, and 40 lash clusters. It's perfect for beginners!

  • Magnifying Mirror: Get a clear view of your lashes during the application process. This will help you achieve precise placement.

  • Lash Adhesive: Choose a high-quality adhesive designed for individual lash extensions. Look for one that provides a strong and long-lasting bond.

  • Tweezers: Fine-pointed tweezers are essential for precise placement of the lashes. They allow you to handle the individual lash clusters with ease.

  • Lash Comb: This tool will help separate and groom your lashes for a natural look. It's important for achieving that fluttery effect.

  • Individual cluster lashes : These lashes are the key to achieving beautiful, customized extensions. Choose the length and curl that suits your desired look.

Step 2: Prep Your Lashes

Before applying the extensions, it's essential to prep your natural lashes properly:

  1. Remove any makeup from your eyes using a coconut oil or makeup remover towel. Ensure that your lashes are clean and free from any residue.

  2. Cleanse your lashes with an oil-free cleanser to remove oils and debris. This step ensures better adhesion and longevity of the extensions.

Step 3: Apply the Extensions

Now it's time to apply the extensions and achieve that stunning lash look:

  1. Dip the base of an extension into the adhesive. Use a small amount to avoid clumping and ensure a secure bond.

  2. Gently place the extension under your lashes, around 1-2mm away from the waterline. Aim for a natural placement that mimics the growth pattern of your own lashes.

  3. Hold the extension in place for a few seconds to allow the adhesive to bond. This ensures a strong attachment and prevents premature shedding.

  4. Repeat the process, working from the outer to the inner corner of your eye. Space out the extensions evenly to achieve a balanced and natural look.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

To perfect your DIY eyelash extensions, follow these final steps:

  1. Use a lash comb to separate and groom the lashes, ensuring a natural and uniform look. This step helps create that fluttery and defined effect.

  2. Avoid applying mascara as it can clump the extensions together or cause premature shedding. Embrace the natural beauty of your lash extensions.

Step 5: Maintenance and Removal

To keep your DIY eyelash extensions looking fabulous and ensure their longevity, follow these maintenance tips:

  1. Avoid rubbing your eyes or tugging on the extensions. Treat them gently to prevent accidental removal.

  2. Use oil-free cleansers or makeup removers to keep the adhesive bond intact. Oil-based products can weaken the adhesive and cause the extensions to come loose.

  3. Gently brush your lashes daily with a clean spoolie to keep them neat and tidy. This step helps maintain their shape and prevents tangling.

  4. When it's time to remove the extensions, use a specialized lash adhesive remover. This ensures a safe and easy removal process.

Remember, practice makes perfect. Don't worry if your first attempt isn't flawless. Keep practicing, experimenting, and discovering what works best for you. Soon, you'll be the envy of all your friends with your gorgeous DIY eyelash extensions.
