Earlier this week we shared tips on the eye-opening experience of getting lash extensions, and we’ve now shifted our focus to spotlight some of the glam styles our favorite celebrities sport on the red carpet. Just in time for the Oscars, Gina Mondragon, celebrity lash-artist and president of LashDip, offers three types of red-carpet lash looks popular with Hollywood’s A-list:
“The Full Monty: Sparse, stubby lashes are very common and can make large eyes appear small or even droopy. Many celebs opt for the quick-fix: A full set of extending inserts are applied to each and every lash, multiplying the lash line for a bold and lustrous transformation. Mondragon uses six different lengths of LashDip’s signature silk inserts to create a naturally staggered contour of extended lashes. Don’t forget about the bottom! LashDip’s signature semi-permanent mascara is painted on each bottom lash to create length, volume, and luminosity that won’t smudge, flake or run—ideal for teary-eyed acceptance speeches!

The Cat-Eye Curve: This is the most popular look—it entails lengthening the eyes by applying extra-long silk inserts at the corners only. This technique creates an elongated effect to make smaller eyes look larger and more angled. Many women sleep on their sides, which causes their corner lashes to become curly and appear shorter than their midline lashes.

Subtly Sophisticated: For those fashionistas who seek that doe-eyed look, but would rather leave the drama to the Oscar winners, opt for a lighter lash application. A few inserts are dropped sporadically throughout the upper lash line creating subtle length and curve you may or may not notice.
