Anyone with beautiful long lashes grabs the eye instantly. Therefore the beauty industry has introduced falsies to extensions over all these years. With progression year by year, Russia was able to create ultra-fine eyelash extensions as the new fad.

The following are a couple of questions that may intrigue us to know about before picking to attempt this new technique.
How are the famous Russian extensions applied?
It is suggested for the extensions to apply under the supervision of a technician. The process involves placing multiple extensions cautiously and flawlessly to each natural lash. So it can create an illusion of the growth of various lashes from one spot. It instantly gives a dense look to the eyes.

These eyelash extensions are a blessing for people deprived of full, thick long lashes or whoever wants to add that extra touch to beautify their eyes. The lashes are categorized as 2D, 3D, 4D, 5D, and 6D. These codes address the number of lashes used to create a fan to put on the actual lash line.
As they say, the more sugar you add, the sweeter it becomes. Much like that, the D addresses the sugar. The Ds will be, the more full your fan will look. 2D means two lashes in a set, 3D means three lashes, 4D means four lashes, and so on. It goes till 6D, over 6D Mega volume Eyelash category starts.
