Are you unfamiliar with using an L and L+ curl on your lash? Are you nervous about using them as an eyelash artist? In this article were going to explore some of the biggest doubts regarding these types of unique roles and exploring why they’ve become such a major trend.
Some of the main situations where you may want to use an L curl include:
When the client has a straight facing or downward-facing lash:
Not everyone’s eyelashes are going to have a natural curve to that, eyelash artists can often use L and L+ curves to work at bonding with straight lashes and ensuring that there is a proper curve on the lash after the bond.
Your client wants a strip lash look with spikes:
If your client is seeking a stripped lash look that also has a spike, you can use the shape to produce the same look without the extreme glamorous texture. L and L+ curls work as a skeleton for the feathery texture that you might be looking for in eyelash extensions. L curl tips can be straight and this can create a textured effect that’s quite edgy without the extreme volume.
The liner look needs to be improved:
L and L+ girls are one of the perfect ways to produce the liner look without any type of eyeliner. If you want to create some really pronounced lash lines, using texture mapping and creating fluffier tips that have a denser wine can be important. The shorter lengths to make the entire set extremely full and dance and it can even produce a winged liner look when required.
Your client has hooded eyes:
If your client has a prominent brow bone which could obscure the crease, this can present a particularly challenging case for you as a lash artist. Using an L or L+ curl here can be an excellent way that you can draw the look of the lashes upwards without hitting the eyelid as other curls may.
Keep some of these top ideas in mind if you are considering using L and L+ curls for your lashes.
