Top and Bottom Lash Extensions: How Do They Work, How to Apply, What's the Difference

Lash extensions are a popular way to enhance your natural lashes and create a more glamorous look. But did you know that you can also get lash extensions for your bottom lashes? Bottom lash extensions are a relatively new trend that can balance your eye shape, make your eyes look bigger and elongate your face. In this article, we will explain how bottom lash extensions are different from top lash extensions, how they work and how they are applied.


Top Lash Extensions & How Do They Work

Top lash extensions work by attaching semi-permanent fibers to your natural lashes using a special glue. They can make your lashes look longer, thicker and darker. They come in different materials, lengths, colors and curls to suit your preferences. 

How are bottom lash extensions applied?

To apply bottom lash extensions, you will need to follow these steps:

  • Choose the right lashes. You will need to select the appropriate length, thickness and curl for your bottom lashes, based on your eye shape, natural lashes and desired look. You can consult with your lash technician for advice on what suits you best.

  • Prep the eyes. You will need to remove any makeup, oil or dirt from your eyes before the application. Your lash technician will also place some eye pads or tape under your eyes to protect your skin and keep your lower lashes in place.

  • Pick the extensions. Your lash technician will use tweezers to pick up each extension from a tray or strip and dip it into the adhesive.

  • Apply the extension. Your lash technician will carefully attach the extension to one of your natural lashes, making sure to avoid any contact with your skin or other lashes. They will also make sure to disperse the extensions evenly and naturally along your lash line.

  • Repeat until all extensions are in place. Your lash technician will continue to apply the extensions until they achieve the desired look or cover all of your lower lashes. They will also check for any gaps or clumps and adjust them as needed.

  • Dry and set the extensions. Your lash technician will use a fan or a blow dryer to dry and set the adhesive. They will also comb through your lashes with a spoolie brush to separate them and make them look fluffy.

Bottom Lash Extensions & How Do They Work 

Bottom lash extensions work by adding length and volume to your lower lashes, creating a more balanced and defined look for your eyes. They can also help open up your eyes, making them appear larger and more expressive. Bottom lash extensions can complement any style of top lash extensions, whether you prefer a natural, classic or dramatic look.

Bottom lash extensions are applied individually to each of your natural lashes using a special adhesive that is safe for the eye area. The adhesive is usually clear or black, depending on the effect you want to achieve. The application process takes about 30-45 minutes, depending on the number of lashes you want to apply.

What’s the Difference Between Bottom Lash Extensions & Top Lash Extensions?

Bottom lash extensions are much thinner and shorter than top lash extensions, as they need to match the natural size and shape of your lower lashes. They also have a less curled shape, usually a B curl, to avoid touching your skin or looking unnatural. Bottom lash extensions can be made of synthetic, silk or mink materials, depending on your preference and budget.

Bottom lash extensions also have a shorter lifespan than top lash extensions, as they tend to fall out faster due to the natural growth cycle of your lashes and the friction from blinking, rubbing or cleansing. Typically, bottom lash extensions last for 1-2 weeks, while top lash extensions can last for 3-4 weeks with proper care.

How to Care for Bottom and Top Lash Extensions?

To keep your lash extensions bottom and top looking good and lasting longer, you will need to follow some aftercare tips:

  • Avoid getting your lashes wet for at least 24 hours after the application.

  • Avoid rubbing, pulling or touching your lashes excessively.

  • Avoid using oil-based products or makeup removers around your eyes.

  • Use a gentle cleanser and a cotton swab to clean your eyes daily.

  • Brush your lashes gently with a spoolie brush every morning and night.

  • Avoid sleeping on your face or side.

  • Avoid using mascara, eyeliner or other eye makeup on your lashes top and bottom.

  • Refill your lashes every 1-2 weeks to maintain their fullness.
