Unfamiliar with L and L+ curls? Nervous about incorporating something new in your life? Time to push past the doubts and start using them, because these unique curls are becoming a MAJOR trend. Here are 4 reasons you should start loving Ls:
1. If you have straight or downward-facing lashes
Not everyone’s lashes have a natural curve to them, and many lash artists find it tricky to create a sharp set on clients with straighter lashes, or on those whose lashes grow down. But the flat base of L and L+ curls allows them to bond really nicely with straight lashes.
2. Perfect for spikes for your strip lash look
Sometimes called the Kim K, the strip lash look is easily one of the most perennially popular lash sets. Because who DOESN’T want all that glam texture? There’s nothing better than L and L+ curls to serve as the skeleton for all that feathery texture. L and L+ lashes are perfect as the spikes of a strip lash look due to the fact they sit higher on the lash. Because the L curl tips are straight, they give the ultimate strip lash effect creating an edgy textured effect.
3. The ULTIMATE liner effect
Wanna kick your eyeliner to the curb? Get a dreamy lash line complete with L curls! Use textured mapping to create fluffy tips with a dense lash line, or Perfect Line mapping to create a crisp liner effect. Plus, using shorter lengths will keep your set dense and full, which mimics a drawn-on winged liner.
4. If you have hooded eyes
Hooded eyes — where a prominent brow bone obscures the crease — can present a real challenge to lashes. But for hooded eyes, L and L+ curls are the secret weapon as these draw the lashes outwards and upwards, creating a lot of lift. And due to the flat base, there’s no chance of the lashes curling back and hitting the eyelid like a D-Curl would.
As with anything, L and L+ curls still have their limitations. L curls are not recommended on clients with round eyes, because it can cause their eyes to appear even more open.
