In a word, YY lash fans are placed at a location 0.5mm to 0.1mm from your eyelids, due to sensitive eye area skin.

If you apply the YY lashes too closer to your skin, this will result in some potential allergic issues, because of certain chemicals in the lash adhesive. The lash glue will block the hair follicles on the lash line, which will result in the infection doing some damage to your real lash growth.

Here are some tips to help you enjoy the YY lashes happily.

Use the right lash glue: And choose the right lash glue (special lash glue adhesive for lash extension application, rather than the regular lash glue), to lower the risk of allergies. It is necessary to do an allergy test before using the lash adhesive. And also don’t use too much lash glue, to avoid the clumpy lash look.

Not too heavy: Don’t apply too many YY lashes on your lashes, and YY lashes designed with different diameters can result in different thicknesses. Don’t apply too heavy YY lashes on your thin natural lashes, this will result in being overweight to add extra pressure to your lashes. The lighter the better.

Not too long: Please be serious about the lash length selection. Don’t expect too long YY lashes, that will result in some potential issues because too long YY lash fans will add extra weight. We recommend that you’d better choose the regular lengths, from 8mm to 10mm. Not too long, only 2-3mm longer than your real lashes.
