One of the reasons that many beauty enthusiasts prefer Russian eyelashes is because of the overall natural look offered by ultra-thin eyelashes. If you want your eyelash extensions to last longer and, at the same time, maintain that dazzling and renewed look, Russian Lashes is your choice. If you're looking for a more dramatic look, Russian eyelashes are probably the one you prefer. However, just like classic lashes, you can choose the length, so you can opt for a super dramatic or “more natural” look.
They simply won't look as natural as classic eyelashes. The biggest benefit of Russian eyelashes is the enormous increase in volume that you get. Russian eyelash technicians are known for their meticulous craftsmanship. When the rest of the world was only familiar with the classic eyelash technique, these Russian artists began to manually create eyelash extension fans made of 2, 3, 4 or 5 thin mink lashes and applied to the base of each individual natural eyelash.
If you're new to eyelash extensions, it can be quite overwhelming to decide what type of extensions to choose. The three main types are classic, hybrid and volume lashes, and they all create different styles, so you have to decide depending on the type of look you're looking for. The classic ones are the most natural extensions for hybrid eyelashes and then the Russian Volume ones. You should also keep in mind that the result also depends on how full your natural eyelashes are before applying any extension.
For example, classic eyelash extensions on someone with completely natural eyelashes will look much more dramatic than on someone with sparse eyelashes. This is because the eyelashes are applied to the natural eyelash individually and, therefore, the more natural eyelashes you have, the more eyelash extensions you can apply. If you're not sure what type of eyelash extensions fit you best, it's always a good idea to consult with your eyelash technician, who will be happy to give you some tips. Once applied and if properly managed, Russian eyelashes should last between 4 and 6 weeks, approximately the same lifespan as natural eyelashes.
To use the Russian 2D-6D volume, you must use between 0.05 and 0.10, depending on the number of tabs that are placed on the fan for the set you are creating. If traditional mascara or false masks don't give you the result you want, look for beauticians in your area who offer Russian eyelashes. As mentioned above, Russian eyelashes are called Russian because the technique was developed in Russia. Russian eyelashes are applied in a similar way to classic eyelashes, in the same sense that they are applied to an individual, natural eyelash.
On Russian eyelashes, a fan of 4 or 5 much thinner eyelashes is applied to each of your eyelashes. However, since Russian Volume creates such a beautiful effect and a glamorous look, now anyone can enjoy the results of this technique, even people with the most lush natural eyelashes. Due to their lightweight nature and the fact that their fan usually envelops natural eyelashes, the retention of Russian Volume eyelashes can be much longer than the retention time of classic eyelash extensions. Your eyelash technician will take between 2 and 6 synthetic lashes and place them together to create the fan that will sit on your natural lashes.
Russian Volume eyelash extensions help fill in the gaps between sparse natural eyelashes that classic extensions couldn't do. Using the Russian Volume technique, the eyelash artist applies more than one extension to each natural eyelash, unfolding them to give the illusion that more lashes grow from a single point. With the Russian eyelash technique, several lashes adhere to a natural eyelash, creating much more volume for the wearer and a darker lash line. When applying Russian eyelashes, technicians use mink lashes with a thickness of 0.03-0.10, tweezers, glue for eyelash extensions and a silicone work pad.
