What Are The Eyeliner Effect Lashes?

The Eyeliner Effect is an underrated gem of lash styles! They are basically a toned-down version of a Cat-eye, and therefore will suit clients with close-set or proportional eyes. However, even though they are characterized by dense and shorter lashes, the drama is still there. If you want to create a winged Eyeliner Effect that everyone is going crazy for at the moment (because who doesn’t want that snatched Bella Hadid look?) then listen up.

Steps to Achieve the Perfect Eyeliner Effect Lashes

1️⃣Selecting The Right Length And Thickness

This technique is all about using shorter-volume lashes. While the length can vary based on your client’s preference and eye shape, generally, 6-8mm extensions work best for the eyeliner effect. Using short lengths creates density right near the lash line which is what gives that traditional eyeliner look. Volume Lash are faux mink lashes so are the best choice for a softer, fluffier look, whereas Chelsea lashes give a silkier, denser look. This strategic approach creates a dense and bold look, closely resembling the classic eyeliner effect.



2️⃣Selecting The Right Curl 

This detailed design involves applying a full Russian volume set of lash extensions with L or M curls, strategically used to achieve a sharp, angular endpoint. To add softness and realism, C curls may be added to the inner corners, enhancing the overall look with a touch of natural allure. The result is a harmonious blend of bold expression and nuanced elegance, making this style a standout choice for those seeking a captivating and sophisticated gaze.

Choose either the L or M curl to elevate the outer corners. If clients have shorter or finer lashes in that area, opting for these curls can provide more lift and make the lashes appear longer, all without compromising the natural lash’s integrity.

3️⃣Making a Lash Fan

Hold the base of the volume lash extensions with your volume lash tweezers and gently pull them away from the strip, creating a lash fan. The lash fan should be wide enough to cover the lash line and mimic the effect of eyeliner. The beauty of using volume lash extensions is their versatility. You can create as thick or as thin a lash fan as you need.

4️⃣Lash Mapping

When using short lash extensions to create an eyeliner effect, you can follow whatever mapping will best suit your client, however, the most popular lash mapping for this look is cat-eye. So, start with the shortest lash extensions in the inner corner, and gradually move towards the longest length of the set as you move along the lash line to the outer corner. Once you reach the last quarter of the lashes, gradually reduce the length of the lash extensions. This may seem counterintuitive, but it gives the desired look whilst also ensuring the smaller natural lashes at the outside of the eye are not under too much pressure.

As with any cat-eye look, it’s best not to use this technique on clients that have very small, or wide-set eyes, as it will only accentuate that and will often make the eyes look heavy as opposed to bright and open!

5️⃣Applying The Lash Extensions

Apply the lash fan to your client’s natural lashes, starting from the outer corner of the eye and working your way in. Be sure to apply the lash extensions as close as possible to the lash line for a more natural-looking effect. A pro tip here: when you’re applying the lash fan, angle it slightly upwards. This gives the illusion of a flick at the end, similar to a cat-eye liner look.
