The placement of cluster lashes depends on the clients eye shape, the direction of the natural lashes and most importantly, clients comfort!
Most often at the Eye Deux studios, I apply the clusters UNDER and IN-BETWEEN the clients natural lashes. This profile view shows why…..
By placing the clusters under and between her lashes, it allows the lashes to have a natural lift. If the clusters were placed on top of her lashes, it would look similar to snuffaluffagus! The adhesive is not clumped up on top giving a more realistic look.
Does it bother the clients eyes? If applied correctly, NO! Very little adhesive is needed, the clients eyes are closed during the entire application (for those who prefer to keep their eyes open, an adhesive with less fumes is highly recommended!). Ladies are able to blink and bat their eyes without irritation.
Now if the person has DOWNWARD pointing lashes, I would suggest placing the clusters on top of their natural lashes. If the clusters are placed under the downward pointing lashes it would pull their lashes down further, creating a sad look.
