The extending ink

Eyes – a window to the soul. Female eyes are the bewitching whirlpools attracting the mysterious shine. The special beauty to them is given by long fluffy eyelashes which do a look to more expressive and emphasize a section of eyes. However not each lady is by nature allocated with such wealth. Fortunately, the modern industry of beauty very far promoted in creation of various cosmetics, she didn't ignore the and female eyes. Mascara was so created. If you wear contact lenses or glasses – refuse use of the extending ink with fibers. The matter is that the microfibers containing in its structure can be showered and get under a lens. It will cause irritation of a cornea of an eye and can lead to emergence of inflammatory process. As for glasses wearing, put a little in other here – when blinking an eyelash will touch glasses, and it will lead to flaking and further dyeing of a product.

Among the available variety the special place is taken by the extending ink. With its help each woman will be able to receive smart eyelashes of which she dreams.

Each mascara, regardless of that, extending it, volume, tightening up or any other, consists of water, soot, various pitches, preservatives and dyes. The good product also contains the looking after components (castor oil, a keratin, lanolin, vitamins A, In, E). Such cosmetics carries out not only decorative function, it feeds eyelashes and protects them from harmful effects of environment.


The composition of the ink intended for lengthening of eyelashes includes also silk microfibres by means of which it turns out to extend each eyelash. There is it as follows: the microparticle clings to a tip of an eyelash and extends it, from above becomes covered by an ink layer for more reliable fixing.

There is one more kind of means for increase in length of eyelashes – bilateral ink with effect of building. Its tuba is divided into two parts: in one there is a special substance, as a rule, of white color with which eyelashes cover for creation of necessary volume, length. In the second part of a tuba there is an ink. With its help to eyelashes give a complete look.


The good extending ink has to possess a number of the following characteristics:

  • To have a special brush – a cone-shaped, cylindrical or helicoid form (for the best prokrashivaniye of eyelashes).
  • Density of ink for lengthening of eyelashes has to be average, not too liquid and not too dense. It is necessary in order that there was an opportunity to cover eyelashes in 2 layers, without making heavier them.
  • Time of drying of good ink shouldn't exceed 90 seconds. It will just be enough to correct length and a form of a ciliary row and to cover it with several layers of the chosen product. If ink dries too slowly, it can soil an upper eyelid, areas under eyes and eyebrows. If too quickly – you can not manage to achieve necessary effect, but on eyelashes there will be ink lumps, and they will look inaccurately.
  • One more property which ink for lengthening of eyelashes – absence of the strong sticking together effect has to possess.

  • One of the most important indicators of quality of the chosen means – firmness. In an ideal it has to keep in the eyes from morning to evening. If already by a lunch you notice black specks or slices of the showered microfibres under eyes – refuse such cosmetics.
  • It is possible to remove the extending ink by means of simple water and soap, and also special means for removal of a make-up. If the chosen product isn't waterproof – do as you consider it necessary. At washing off ink shouldn't pinch an eye, form under them blue circles.
  • There is a wish to tell a little more on what such cosmetic has to have a brush. There is a lot of brushes. Only to you to solve what of them is more convenient – tightening up (having a small bend), flexible silicone, fleecy or not really, long or short. Try some options and decide on a choice.

At once we will make a reservation – any opinion in this respect subjectively. The choice depends only on your preferences. To choose the best ink, pay attention to the next moments:

  • It has to conform to the international ophthalmologic standards, to be completely safe for sight.

  • The tuba has to be closed densely - otherwise the product will prematurely dry. There harmful microorganisms can get, and the product will become unsuitable and dangerous to use.
  • Don't use ink expired.

Make-up examples

In the course of performance of a daily make-up of the woman develop individual technology of coloring of eyelashes: someone blinks, having substituted a brush to an upper eyelid; someone with effort moves it from roots to tips. Let's understand, what technicians of drawing exist and in what their advantages and shortcomings:

  • Putting ink zigzag movements (from below up). Such way helps to reach the maximum volume of eyelashes on all length. Enjoys special popularity at owners of short eyelashes. If your eyelashes have good length, you shouldn't make up them thus – it can turn out not really accurately because of excess of ink.
  • The next way – blinking. Will be suitable for lovers of a natural make-up. Eyelashes in this case become magnificent, divided and don't stick together.
  • Putting ink by means of a brush tip. Not too practical way. The matter is that on the end of a brush a large amount of ink usually accumulates. When coloring eyelashes thus they will stick together among themselves on 2-3 pieces. The effect of "tear-stained eyes" will be gained. If you don't want to achieve such effect, don't make up an eyelash with a brush tip.
  • Covering of eyelashes several layers of ink. Here the main thing – to know when to stop. Too densely made up eyelashes look roughly and slovenly. The best option - 2-3 layers. Apply the first layer on the top eyelashes, then - at once to the second, without allowing them to dry. Ink is odnosloyno applied on the lower eyelashes.

If in the course of performance of a make-up you incidentally smeared ink on a century or round an eye, accurately erase it by means of a wadded disk or a Q-tip.

When using the special device for a wave of eyelashes you remember that it is necessary to carry out a wave before putting ink, but in any way not after.
