Eyelashes have been a huge factor in women’s beauty essentials since the ancient Egyptian times. But when it comes to modern eyelashes, no one can deny that the Kardashians have the most incredible lash style.
In fact, most of our clients specifically want the Kim Kardashian look for their eyelash extensions. It’s the most requested style, with the natural look only coming in second!
What makes Kim Kardashian’s eyelashes stand out is her signature spaced-apart look. Those mile-long lashes have that beautiful wispy effect, carefully applied to create the perfect volume and spacing. And even with that much volume, it doesn’t look fake at all! It just makes the eyes super sultry.
Let’s face it, Kim’s look can only be credited to a combination of genetics, mascara and lash extensions. But the look can be easily achieved – with our help of course!
How to Get Kim Kardashian’s Eyelashes
So how can you get that signature lash style? Hrusch Achemyan, a makeup artist who works with the Kardashians, says that the trick is using hand-made fringe. Doing it by hand creates a natural look, which can be customised depending on how thick you want it and how you want each lash laid out.
Below is one of our lash clients here on the Gold Coast – this is a more natural looking version of what Kim is usually wearing, which is more suitable for day-to-day wear.
To achieve Kim Kardashian’s trademark lashes, here are a few more tips:
Curl, and then curl some more
Adding curl is everything when you want full blown eye drama. Look for a lash curler that catches all of your lashes and doesn’t pinch. You also want to squeeze your curler repeatedly – don’t just pump the curler once and hold it on the lashes. You have to squeeze a few times as you move the curler toward the corner of the eyes.
Press with your primer
Apply an eyelash primer by pressing on the lashes and wriggling it around a bit before you pull away. This sets the primer along the base of the lashes, and gives that slightly-spaced effect. Afterwards, you could run a comb through the lash extensions to make them even.
Apply mascara starting from the base
If you want Kim’s full wispy lashes, you have to use mascara on your lash extensions. The trick is to apply it right. Make sure that you start right under your tear duct right at the bottom of your lash. Don’t brush the wand straight up your lash extensions; instead, wriggle it ever so slightly upwards.
Don’t forget the bottom lashes
Kim’s lash style is always full volume – on top and at the bottom. So apply mascara by placing the wand underneath the bottom lashes, and twirl it gently back and forth. Use a dry brush to keep lashes from clumping together.
Kim Kardashian’s signature lash look can be replicated with a few tweaks on how you use mascara, your curler, and other lash products. These are easy enough techniques that can be done on a daily basis.
Of course, these tricks will be made easier once you have the volume and length that eyelash extensions provide. With lash extensions that are individually applied to each natural eyelash, your eyes will look stunning without looking too overdone.
