Grimas Eyelashes are used as an addition to or as a substitute for the natural eyelashes or to create a special effect. Eyelashes are available in a variety of lengths, shapes and materials, varying from hand-tied lashes of real hair to plastic eyelashes and combinations of both. A number of variants are available: base lashes, upper lashes and medium and large lash extensions.
The lashes are available as set in a box.
Pieces of Eyelash are available in various sizes.
Grimas Eyelashes are available in many different colours, including silver and gold.
Note: always work on a dry base.
Take the Eyelash carefully out of the box. Using the adhesive edge that holds it in the box, you can attach the Eyelash to the upper eyelash edge using tweezers or the fingers. Work from the inside outwards, starting slightly inside the inner corner of the eye. Remove the Eyelash again. Any excess length you can cut off at the outer end.
Hint: if there is any doubt, it is better to make the Eyelashes 1 mm too short!
Put some Grimas Eyelash Adhesive on a plastic spatula and then apply a small amount of adhesive along the eyelash edge with the point of a spatula or the back of a brush. Take care to use a little extra adhesive for the innermost and outermost ends.
Apply the Eyelash from the inner side outwards using tweezers. Press carefully on with a cotton bud. Work rapidly, as the adhesive dries quickly. After a few minutes, the white Eyelash Adhesive will automatically turn transparent.
Pieces of Eyelash
If you want to apply Pieces of Eyelash to the entire eyelash, use a smaller size for the inner corner of the eye and the centre eyelashes and finish with larger pieces towards the outer edge to create an attractive natural effect.
Put some Grimas Eyelash Adhesive on a plastic spatula and take a Piece of Eyelash carefully from the box with fingers or tweezers. Dip the 'root' into the adhesive and place it on the eyelash edge. Work from the inner side outwards and do so quickly, because the adhesive dries quickly. After a few minutes, the white Eyelash Adhesive will automatically turn transparent.
After this, apply if necessary with Grimas Eyeshadow/Rouge and Cleansing Lotion an eyeliner (see "making eyeliner").
Remove the Eyelashes or Pieces of Eyelash carefully. Clean the eye with Grimas Cleansing Milk, Cleansing Lotion or Make-up Remover.
The Eyelashes can be re-used if they have not lost their shape. Carefully loosen the adhesive from the eyelash edge with your finger and place the eyelash back in the box.
