Hey guys so sorry I have been so MIA on here. I have had a million and one things going on like getting a brand new job as a chemist, my dream job y'all....God is soo good. But the biggest highlight of this month has been launching my new lash line. Yup, I started a lash line... Lil ol me. #wonthedoit

This is a project I have been working on for months but years in my mind. And I am so grateful that I am now at the finish line. It took months of blood, sweat, sleepless nights, endless calls/research and much more to finally get here, but it's here and I couldn't be more proud. Lashes are my absolute favorite feature when it comes to makeup so this is a passion project.

Synthetic vs Mink lashes

Synthetic eyelashes are made up of synthetic materials or plastics so the eyelashes will be much stiffer and over-weight and eventually make them harder to use it. Due to its synthetic fiber, it makes them look thicker as well. On the other hand, mink eyelashes are soft and make them look more natural when used.

What are mink lashes and what is it made of?

Mink eyelashes are made up of mink fur and it has certain advantages as well. The mink eyelashes are more natural, fluffy and lighter at the same time. Due to its light weight and higher quality of lashes, it can be reused after one use also, up to 25 times if well taken care of.

Born from the idea that every girl needs a staple pair of lashes; think your go-to lashes! As a makeup artist, April would get frustrated as she watched her beautiful makeup looks get ruined by her client’s incompetent pair of lashes due to their poor knowledge about a good pair of lashes. Triggered by this inadequacy, she started to do her research at her day job and found that mink lashes were the best thing on the market. She loved the way they looked, how flattering they were on the eyes and their 3d effect. She had her aha moment, and April Lashes was born. AL are trendsetting, innovative strip lashes created to fit every eye shape, and fit for every occasion. Our invincible lash band is one of the many reasons April Lashes is so heavily desired among our clients.

How to apply your lashes

  • Pre-trim your AprilLashes to match your natural eye length
  • Apply a thin layer of adhesive to the base of the mink strip, applying a little more at the inner and outer corner of the strip. Follow timing directions on your adhesive until the glue becomes sticky before applying to lash line.
  • Put mink strip starting at the middle of the lash line, press down and out towards inner corner first, then the outer. Hold for a few seconds/ or until secure. Apply adhesive to outer and inner corner if necessary.
  • Apply makeup and mascara BEFORE your minks. Reapply eyeliner on the inner and outer corner if necessary.
