WHAT ARE ANIME LASHES?

Anime lash extensions are inspired by the large, expressive eyes commonly seen in Japanese animation (anime). These extensions are usually longer, thicker, and more dramatic than typical eyelash extensions. They often involve a mix of lengths and curls to create a wide-eyed, impactful look.

Anime lashes also emphasize the lower lash line, giving the eyes an exaggerated doll-eye appearance similar to that of female anime and manga characters. This lash style is a fun way to create a dramatic look without overdoing it.

The technique involving individual lashes was where the trend started on TikTok, but it quickly caught the beauty industry's attention and developed into lash extensions. 

One of the most popular anime lash styles is the brown anime lash set.

3 types of spikes for anime lash sets

Anime lashes are all the rage, and getting those spikes just right is key to nailing the look. But you don't need to be a master artist to start creating beautiful, eye-catching sets. Here’s a straightforward rundown of the three types of spikes you can use to give your clients that anime look!

Lash Wisps, Volume Lashes and Wet Volume Lashes are used here. To shop, please click here.

 

LASH WISPS

First off, lash wisps are a godsend for beginners. They’re very easy to use – you apply them just like classic lashes. No special skills or techniques are required. Just pick them up, dip in adhesive, and place them where you want that extra bit of length and volume.

LOOSE VOLUME LASHES

When it comes to loose volume lashes, it’s all about the thickness. Skip the ultra-thin 0.03s – they’ll give you fluff but not the definition you want for spikes. Stick with 0.05 or 0.07 diameters for that sweet spot between boldness and manageability. Just remember, if you’re using them for spikes, glue aid will make them stick but won’t keep them spiky after a brush-through. They’ll blend more into a fluffy look than stand out as distinct spikes.

BONDED TIPS/WET LASHES

Finally, there are lashes that are pre-bonded at the tips, often referred to as wet lashes because of their sleek appearance. These are great for a fuller, textured look but tread lightly – it’s easy to get carried away. The key is to not overload your client’s natural lashes. You want each spike to stand out without weighing down the natural lash line. Balance is everything; you want the drama without the droop.

LASH MAP FOR ANIME LASHES

Lash mapping #1

This is one lash map for an anime set, it simply involves building spikes that are longer and anchoring them with shorter spikes on the side. For example, the longest spike is 10 mm in the inner corners. It is anchored by 2 9 mm spikes on the sides and the 9 mm spikes are anchored with the 8 mm spikes. This creates really intense spikes that are more visible.

The main central spike is always supported by at least 4 supportive spikes to make a chunky pyramid.

Lash direction is incredibly important when working with anime lashes since the spikes all have a place.

The spikes are typically more spaced apart, and there are less of them than in a traditional wispy set, for example, there are 5 spikes in this set, but they are larger and more pronounced.

Lash mapping #2

This particular lash map indicates a variety of lengths, starting from 7mm in the inner corners and graduating to 13mm in the center, which will likely give a dramatic and open look, true to anime style.

ANIME LASHES ARE SUITABLE FOR:

  • Anime eyelash extensions can be a great way to round out your client's eye shape, make it appear larger, and add volume to the lashes. They're also perfect for those who want the appearance of having longer lashes without actually having to grow them out (which takes forever).
  • If your client has a narrow-shaped eyes, anime lashes are an excellent option for them! Because of their popularity in anime and manga culture, they can help you achieve the dramatic look that so many people associate with these characters.
  • But don't think that just because the eyes aren't narrow or almond-shaped means you can't benefit from these extensions! Anyone who wants an easy way to enhance their eye shape should consider getting them.

ANIME LASHES ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR:

  • Anime style lashes can be dramatic—which makes them so appealing! However, if your client's natural eye shape is already large and round (or if they have close-set eyes), these lashes may make the eyes appear startled rather than seductive. If this sounds like an issue for your client, then anime style lashes probably aren't for them!
  • Anime lashes also tend to make eyes look bigger than they are if this isn't something that appeals to your client.

    BREAKING DOWN THE TIMELINE: HOW LONG DO ANIME LASHES LAST?

    Anime lashes have gained popularity for their unique and eye-catching style. If you have a client considering getting anime lash extensions, it's essential to understand their lifespan and maintenance requirements. 

    Let's explore how long anime lashes typically last, taking into account both the upper and lower lash lines.

    Anime Lashes

    Promade Organized Fans, Lash Wisps, Bullet Adhesive, Incredible Retention Primer, and Super Bonder are used in this set. To shop, please click here.

     

    The Duration of Upper Lash Line Extensions: Similar to other styles of lash extensions, the upper lash line for anime lashes can last for around 4 to 6 weeks. However, it's important to note that this duration can vary based on individual factors such as the growth cycle of your natural lashes and client's aftercare routine. Proper care, including regular cleansing, avoiding excessive rubbing, and refraining from using oil-based products, can contribute to prolonging their lifespan.

     

    The Lifespan of Lower Lash Line Extensions: In contrast to the upper lash line extensions, the lower lash line extensions for anime lashes have a shorter duration. Typically, they last for approximately 14 days (depending). The lower lashes tend to be thinner, shorter, and more delicate, making them more prone to falling out sooner. Therefore, it's crucial to be mindful of this shorter lifespan and consider the maintenance required for the lower lash line extensions.

     

    Factors Affecting Lash Extension Longevity: Several factors can impact the overall lifespan of anime lashes. These include:

    1. Natural lash growth cycle: The growth cycle of the natural lashes plays a significant role in determining how long the lash extensions will last. As the natural lashes shed, the attached extensions will naturally fall out with them.

    2. Aftercare routine: Following proper aftercare instructions is essential to maintain the longevity of the anime lash extensions. This includes gentle cleansing, avoiding excessive moisture, and refraining from using oil-based products that can weaken the adhesive bond.

    3. Individual habits: Certain habits, such as excessive rubbing of the eyes or sleeping face-down, can cause premature shedding of lash extensions. Being mindful of these habits can help extend the lifespan of the lashes.
