All about Eyelash Trays
If you are a fan of beauty and self-care products, then you must have come across the term ‘eyelash tray’ somewhere and wondered what it is exactly. An eye lash tray is a flat box that contains an assortment of different eye lash extensions. They serve to keep your eyelash extensions organized and easily sorted
If you look closely at the collection in an eyelash tray, you will find different variations of eyelashes in there arranged according to the length, and the type of curl. Usually, eyelashes vary according to the style of curl, the material used to make individual lashes, and the lashing used.
Variation in terms of curls
The B curl lash– If you are looking for an eye lash extension that makes you look natural, then the B curl is the way to go. This is because it doesn’t add too much curl to your eye lashes as it is more straight than a c curl, but more curled than a J curl. It does, however, add length and volume to give you that effortlessly natural look.
The C curl lash– If you want a safe look with eye lashes, then the c curl is the way to go. This is because it compliments whichever eye shape you have without being overly dramatic. While its base is straight, it flows into a curl while keeping it short. This means that while it does not add volume to your lashes, it will add curl and length to them.
The J curl lash– If a natural but doe eye look is what you are looking for, then this is the eye lash to go. Like a ‘J’, it is straight from the base to the middle with only a slight curl at the end. It will appear long and straight lending your lashes natural-looking length and volume, but nearly no curl.
The D curl lash– If a dramatic loom is what you are looking for, then this is the eyelash to go with. It has more curl and volume that the c curl to give you the doll eye sort of look. While as long as a c curl, it will give you more volume and a more prominent curl.
The L curl lash-If you have a downturned eye, then this is the eyelash to go for. While slightly dense at the base, it opens up to be sparser at the end. This gives you the illusion of a wider eye. It also curls at the middle to provide a soft lift to your lashes.
Eyelash extensions can also be sorted by the material they are made of. Believe it or not, this does affect the look of the eye lash.
Variation in terms of material
Mink eyelashes– For a natural-looking lash, mink is probably the best way to go. They are made from real hair, mostly mink fur hairs, and they tend to be thin and therefore don’t weigh down your eyelashes. This results in a very luscious but natural look. However, compared to silk and synthetic lashes, they don’t last as long, and they can get wet and droopy.
Silk eyelashes-For a longer-lasting eyelash, silk eyelashes are the lashes for the job. As they are a combination of mink and synthetic, they tend to be weightier than mink and more long-lasting than synthetic lashes. They are also thick at the bottom and sparse at the end to look fuller while keeping glossy and dark.
Synthetic eyelashes-If you want something full and bold without spending a small fortune, then synthetic lashes will be a good choice for you. They don’t get wet or droopy as they are made of synthetics. They also tend to be long and full to lend your eyelashes a full look. However, their thickness comes with weight, and they don’t seem that natural.
Variation in terms of lashing
Classic lashing– Classic lashing nails the natural look as one extension eyelash is added to one individual eyelash. The ratio is always one to one to make sure the end result is not full. They work great if you already have many natural eyelashes per eyelid so as not to overcrowd the eye.
Volume lashing– Volume lashing nails the full look as two to six extension eyelashes are added to one individual natural eyelash usually using the pinching technique. 2d means that two extension lashes are used per natural eyelash, 3d means that three extension lashes are used per lash, and so on with the most being six per lash. Of course, the more extensions per natural lash you use, the thinner the diameter you have to go with to avoid a crowded look. If you have sparse eyelashes per eyelid, then volume lashes will work perfectly for you.
