Step 1: Preparation
Try on the lashes and trim to fit if needed by using Youthphoria's precision scissors. Always trim from the outer end first, then from the inner corner (section closest to the nose) ONLY if required. You'll want the magnetic lashes to sit approximately where your natural lashes begin and finishing where your natural lashes end. Allow about 2-10mm from the inner corner of your eye for a comfortable fit.
Make sure your eyelids are dry and free from oil or moisturiser. You may use powder eyeshadow or regular eyeliner underneath your Youthphoria clear eyeliner—just make sure it’s dry before proceeding!
Step 2: Applying your clear eyeliner
Shake the eyeliner and apply 2-3 even coats of the liner close to the natural lash line. Let the liner dry for around 15 seconds BETWEEN coats. Make sure the eyeliner is at least the thickness of the lash band and consistent along the entire lash line. Make sure the eyeliner is at least the thickness of the lash band and consistent along the entire lash line. You may need to gently lift the eyelid towards the ear to get a smooth eyeliner application. If required, curl & apply mascara to your natural lashes AFTER using the eyeliner & let it dry.
You can also apply the clear liner to the lash band, focusing on the inner & outer corners, for extra hold. Allow to dry for 10 seconds before attaching to the skin. Before adding your lashes, the liner needs to be semi-dry to 80% and tacky (takes 15-45 seconds after the last coat).
TIP: To prevent liner transfer to the upper eyelids: When applying eyeliner, tilt your chin upwards and look down into a mirror until the last coat of eyeliner semi-dries and the magnetic lashes are applied. You may prefer to keep your eyes closed when waiting for the liner to semi-dry. Hooded eyes will benefit from using paper tape or fingers to lift the upper eyelids up during eyeliner application. Remove the tape or release the skin after the magnetic lashes are securely attached.
Step 3: Applying your magnetic eyelashes
Use Youthphoria's lash applicator for a better grip and for visible placement of the magnetic lashes.
Before applying the lashes, wrap the lashes around your finger for up to 10 seconds to help mould the lash band to the contours of your eye.
Beginning on the inner corner (closest to the nose), firmly press the inner portion of the magnetic lashes down on top of the eyeliner following the curve of your eye. Then gently place the remaining lash band onto the liner, working towards the middle of the eye and then the outer end. When the lash is attached, PRESS DOWN FIRMLY along the entire base of the lashes & hold for 5-10 seconds across your eyelid to ensure a flush & secure connection.
TIP: While attaching your magnetic lashes close to the natural lash line, gently lift the eyelid upwards and towards the brows with your fingers or tape. This will allow the magnetic eyelashes to sit flush with your natural lashes.
Precautions: As with any cosmetic product, always perform a patch test prior to full application. In case of eye contact, wash the eye thoroughly with clean water. If you have a pre-existing eye condition consult a medical professional before use.
Removing your lashes and eyeliner
When you’re ready to remove your lashes, peel off the magnetic lashes from your eyelids with your fingers. You can easily remove the clear eyeliner with Youthphoria’s specially formulated, natural and Australian made foam makeup remover or waterproof makeup remover.
Caring for your lashes and liner
Lashes: Remove the eyeliner remnants on the lash band and fibres after each use by gently and thoroughly cleaning with a cotton bud saturated with Isocol (64% Isopropyl Alcohol - purchase from your local supermarket) and allow to air dry, for best results. This will keep them hygienic too.
Eyeliner: Clean regularly to remove residue by soaking a cotton pad in makeup remover and gently swiping the pen tip if required.
When properly cared for, your Youthphoria magnetic lashes are reusable 30-60 times.
Tip: Do not use makeup remover or micellar water to clean the lashes. Do not soak the lashes. To increase the longevity of your Youthphoria magnetic eyelashes, don’t apply mascara directly to them. You can apply mascara to your natural lashes first, allow it to dry, then apply your Youthphoria Lashes.
