How To Work with Coloured Eyelash Extensions

Coloured lashes are BEAUTIFUL and often don't get the recognition they deserve! Why not encourage your clients to go for a more colourful lash look? Here are our Top 5 Tips on how to incorporate stunning coloured lashes into your eyelash extension treatments!


Use Clear Eyelash Extension Glue

Clear lash glue is the best friend for coloured lashes! To create a bright and colourful look that truly pops - use a clear eyelash glue! This way the bonds between the lash extensions and the natural lashes won’t be visible, which is especially helpful when using bright colours. Don’t have a clear lash glue? Don't worry, we've got you covered! Our Crystal Bond lash glue is the perfect choice for this!

Create an Eyeliner Effect

You can use a black pigmented eyelash extension glue such as our Royal Bond, Satin Bond, Lady Bond, Power Bond, or Flexie to create a more defined eyeliner effect for your client's lashes! When working with darker coloured lashes, for example dark blue or brown - try using black eyelash glue. You will be surprised with how easily you can achieve an eyeliner effect this way!

P.S. Make sure your lash glue application is spot on, as it will be more visible with coloured lashes!

Mix and Match

Why not use coloured lash extensions that complement your client's eye colour? For example, if your client has blue eyes, place a few blue lashes in the outer corners of the lash line to make their natural eye colour really stand out. This placement trick cleverly opens up your client's eyes and makes them appear bigger and brighter. If your client has green eyes? Add a hint of green lashes at the bottom layer of natural lashes for an extra spark of colour! Don't be afraid to use clashing colours too, to really turn heads! If your client has blue eyes, throw in some warm orange lashes, or for those brown-eyed babes, grab some hot pinks!

Play with Layers

Place coloured lashes on different layers of the natural lashes to create different effects! If you place coloured lashes on the top layer - it will give a soft hint of colour - mostly visible when your client blinks/closes their eyes.

Placing lashes on the middle layer of the natural lashes is far more subtle - just a hint of something exciting going on in amongst the black lashes

Applying coloured lashes to the bottom layer of the natural lashes makes them the most visible and hypnotising!

Combine Colours

Mix black lashes in with coloured lashes to create a more subtle, wearable everyday look or really go for it and use only coloured lashes for those who clients who dare to be bold and embrace their coloured lashes dreams! This incredible look (on London Lash Affiliate Trainer Shareen Nesbeth, no less) uses electric blue with some striking violet lashes!
