Eyelash rooting + cutting pattern for a “cat eye” look


  1. Root the eyelashes closely together to avoid gaps, make the eyelashes very long (you’ll cut them later)
  2. Use an elastic + boil perm to set the long eyelashes up against the face
  3. Use nail scissors or sewing scissors to trim the eyelashes down to a slanting shape – no longer than 3mm at the shortest part (so it will look like eyeliner not lashes at certain angles).

Model: Myscene Madison custom “Blue Moon” who’s going to get a boil perm soon. Sorry about the sloppy photos, it’s just to show the technique. She had a wonky eye placement and the eyelashes are meant to minimise that.
