Everything you need to know about lash extensions... 


Eyelash extensions can be made of silk, mink or lightweight synthetic. A professional lash artist will apply the extensions and attach them to the natural lashes directly with the use of a semi-permanent adhesive to create the desired look.

In the market, you can find eyelash extensions made from silk fibers, mink hair, or lightweight synthetic materials that resemble natural lashes. We use high-quality Korean polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) for Universe Beauty Lashes. Known as a semicrystalline engineering thermoplastic, PBT is a synthetic material made from polypropylene. With a high molecular weight, this high-performance material is highly flexible, strong, and resilient.

Each eye has 90 to 120 natural eyelashes. The number of individual lashes applied to each eye will depend on the shape of your eyes. Typically, 60 to 140 can be applied to each eye.

For those of you who have never used eyelash extensions, you might worry that the results will be unnatural or that you will have an allergic reaction. Because of this, it is important to consider all the factors before using eyelash extensions in order to achieve the look you desire.


Does eyelash extension come in different types?

A comprehensive list of fake lashes is provided in this article, including their construction, length, curl, size, and so on:



The most common lengths range from 8 mm to 15 mm, with short lengths between 4 mm and 8 mm and moderate lengths between 9 mm and 12 mm. Extra-long fake lashes are available up to 25 mm.

You can damage your natural lashes if you choose the wrong extensions or get uncomfortable if you choose the wrong length.

In addition to that, lashes that are too heavy can prevent healthy lash growth from the follicles. For this reason, it is the general rule of thumb that for you to achieve the best results with eyelash extensions, the extensions should be at least 3mm - 5mm longer than your natural lashes so that the result will look natural.

In addition, it is crucial that the diameter of the extensions closely correspond with the diameter of your natural lashes so that they look as natural as possible. There will be more of a noticeable difference in the appearance of your lashes if the thickness of the lashes is greater than what your natural lashes are.

Eyelash Extension Curl Type:

As far as lash extensions are concerned, one must keep in mind that there are a number of different curls that are available, such as I, J, B, C, D, CC, DD, U, L, and M.


In this article, we will be discussing some of the most commonly used curls.

B Curl

If you are looking for the most natural-looking curls, the B curl is considered to be the most popular. Considering its suitability for specific types of people, it is designed primarily for people who do not curl their natural lashes or for those who already have straight lashes but need to lift them up a bit.


C curl :

There is no doubt that the C curl is one of the most commonly used types of curls because it fits most types of eye shapes and it is one of the most versatile. Almost every eye shape can be accommodated by the C curl, which is why it is the most popular curl. If you would like to make your thin natural lashes appear more open and full, then a C-curl is ideal for you and it will look like your lashes were shaped with a lash curler.


CC Curl:

There is no doubt that this is an excellent curl that falls somewhere between the C curl and the D curl.


D Curl:

It is impossible to go wrong with a D-curl if you want to achieve a dramatic look, and it is also great for opening up your eyes when it comes to defining them. Further, it would be best if your lashes were naturally curly, since that would give the appearance of a semicircular shape to your eyes.


L Curl:

An upward curl that has a flat base that is followed by a gradual upward lift. If you have hooded eyes, single eyelids or straight lashes that point downwards, there is no better curl than this one for you.


M Curl:

The M Curl gives the appearance of lifted eyelids without curling back too much towards the eyelid itself.


There are always C, CC, D, and DD Curls in stock at Universe Beauty Lashes, but if you need any other curl, it can be produced for private label orders.

Eyelash Extension Thickness/Diameter:

The thickness of eyelash extensions on the market ranges from 0.03mm to 0.25mm, meaning that there is a wide variety of thicknesses available to suit each individual's natural lash and at the same time add glamor to the eyes. There are several factors to consider when it comes to selecting the right diameter of eyelash extensions for the client so that they can achieve the best results based on the condition of the client's natural lashes. Although thick eyelash extensions can create a glamorous look, they are not guaranteed to be long lasting and are likely to fall off over time due to poor retention.

0.03mm, 0.05mm & 0.07mm:

In addition to being extremely thin, it is also very lightweight. There are several types of synthetic lashes but they are usually used for mega volume & Russian volume lashes or when filling in gaps in lashes that are very thin.


Depending on the thickness and length of the natural lashes, the thickness can also be used for both a volume and a classic set. This thickness can also be used as a volume set on thin natural lashes. This works perfectly with those baby lashes (which are still growing in and are shorter than the rest) when it comes to doing classic or volume sets.



If you have thinner lashes you can use the classic lashes to add a softer, wispier look and feel to them.



Depending on the thickness of the natural lashes, this can create a natural look that is thicker and fuller (classic lashes where the lashes are full). This is the diameter that is most often used for classic lashes.



Using this technique, you can create a thicker and fuller look for classic lashes.



Having lash extensions of this thickness creates the appearance of mascara on your lashes.



There are a variety of different types of lashes that you can choose from, but the weight of each one will depend on your lashes and some of them may not be able to support so much weight. Make sure that your client’s lashes are capable of handling the thickness of the lashes before using them.

This is a dramatic look that you can achieve in a short amount of time with your classic lashes.




Regarding the appearance of your eyelashes, the use of eyelash extensions is a great way to achieve a classic, natural, dramatic, or fuller look.


On top of that, you will be able to save a considerable amount of time that you would otherwise spend when applying your eye makeup. If you are working with the right lash tech, the extensions could remain in a great condition for a long time without damaging your existing lashes if they are properly applied.


A certified lash artist can apply eyelash extensions and you can maximize the retention over time if you follow a few simple care instructions and daily routine to clean the extensions. This will give you the appearance of having long, thick and beautiful lashes which cannot be achieved with most eye makeup products.
