The ultimate guide to magnetic lashes for beginners

Magnetic lashes are a new and innovative way to get the lash look you want without the hassle. In this article, we'll discuss everything you should know about magnetic eyelashes.

What are magnetic lashes?

Magnetic eyelashes are false eyelashes with magnetic tips. The magnets help hold the lashes in place and make them reusable; because you can just place them on your lash line without having to use glue. This makes it easier than traditional false eyelashes, which require regular application of glue or other types of adhesive.

Pros of magnetic lashes stripe

The best part about magnetic lash strips is that they don’t require glue to apply. This means that you won’t have to worry about making a mess or having glue residue on your lashes. You also won’t have to worry about the irritation that can come from using conventional lash extensions, since you aren’t applying glues directly to your skin.

And if you think this sounds too good to be true, it isn’t! Eyeslish uses only the highest quality materials and our products are made from reusable materials so you can use them over and over again!

Cons of magnetic lashes extensions

Magnetic lash extensions can be a bit of a pain to use. They are not made according to the shape of the natural lash line, so they need to be trimmed. This can take a lot of time and may not look as natural as lashes that are designed according to the shape of the natural lash line.
They can also be unstable once they have been applied and may disconnect and fall off easily.
The most inconvenient thing about magnetic lashes is that you cannot bend them – you have to apply them as they are which can make them look awkward when they do not correspond with the shape of your eyes.

How do Magnetic eyelashes work? Two types of magnetic lashes

There are two types of magnetic lashes: two magnetic strips that attach to each other (Also known as traditional magnetic lashes) or one magnetic strip that attaches to magnetic eyeliner.

How do magnetic liner lashes work?

The other type of magnetic lash features the same type of magnetized lash, but instead of attaching to another magnetized lash, it attaches to magnetized eyeliner. This kind is easier to apply, given that you only have to work with one strip per eye instead of two.
Once you've applied your eyeliner and put on mascara, you can apply this magnetic lash by simply applying it directly over top of your eyeliner—no glue needed!

How do traditional magnetic lashes work?

It's like a sandwich: think of your real lashes as the center of a sandwich, and the two strips of magnetic lashes as the bread. Each strip sits above and below your natural lash and is held in place by tiny magnets that are undetectable once the lashes are on.

Which type of magnetic lashes are best?

I love the traditional magnetic lashes for more of an everyday look. They don't show up too much and are really easy to put on. The magnetic eyeliner lashes, however, are great for nights out and special occasions. They're also really easy to put on—once you get used to them —and they look so glamorous!
But if I had to choose between the two sets, I'd say that it depends on the look you're going for. If you want something more natural but still want some drama, go with the traditional magnetic lashes. If you like something more dramatic or want to add a little bit of glamour to your night out (or even just your day at work), then go with the magnetic eyeliner lashes!

Are magnetic lashes safe?

Magnetic eyelashes are safe to use. They are made of a non-toxic material, which is FDA approved and has been used in many other cosmetic products for years.
Magnetic lashes can be cleaned and sanitized using soap and water or alcohol wipes. The magnetic lash glue will last longer if you clean it after each use with alcohol wipes, but this is not necessary when cleaning your skin around the eyes every night before bed with warm water, mild soap (if needed), or a cleanser.

How to apply traditional magnetic lashes

  1. Pull apart the strips from each other, then follow the applicator tool instructions (located on the applicator) to determine which lash goes on top and bottom.
  2. With the applicator slightly opened, push against your eyelid.
  3. Getting as close as possible, clamp down on the applicator and release.
  4. If you need to adjust your lashes a little bit, carefully pull from one end, reload, the applicator and try again!

How to apply magnetic lashes with liner

  1. Measure the lash to your eye. If it's too long, trim off any excess length on the outer end of the lashes.
  2. Apply magnetic liner lashes to your lashes and let it set for 2 minutes. While you wait, you can do the other eye!
  3. Repeat step 1 and let dry for another minute.
  4. Use your fingers or tweezers to gently set the lash on top of the liner. If it didn't align properly, pull gently from one end and see if there was any liner that was pulled off—if so, you can apply another layer of liner and try again!

How long do magnetic lashes last?

We've done some research and found that the answer depends on what kind of lashes you have. Synthetic lashes can be worn up to eight times, while animal hair ones - like mink lashes - can be worn up to 30 times. But this depends on the brand you buy from and how meticulous you are about caring for them after each use.

Dont's Sleep with your magnetic lashes on

It is important to remove your magnetic lashes before going to sleep. If you wear them while sleeping, they can irritat and even make the eyes feel heavy. Since most people use eye makeup before going to bed, it may be a good idea to remove them before applying any makeup products as well.
