Classic eyelash extension is a technique used when performing eyelash extensions. It means applying one lash on every single natural lash. ‘’Natural eye’’ means to enhance the client's eyes by opening more of their eyes. That can be done with lengths being applied in a certain way, which is called open eyelash mapping.

How to do classic natural eyelash extensions

As mentioned earlier, eyelash extensions can be applied in a ratio of 1:1. Each healthy natural eyelash will have a classic eyelash extension on it. The longest length will be in the middle, and the shortest in the inner and the outer corners will have longer lashes than the inner corners, but shorter than the middle of the eyes. 

An example of this mapping would be to have lengths of 7-8-9-10-11-12-11-10-9 mm, from the inner corner to the outer corner. This style is the most traditional for eyelash mapping. It contours the original length of the client’s eyelashes, but just adds length. This style is great for people who want to keep a natural look but are looking for darker lashes, and a little change in their facial structure.

There is no secret when it comes to lashing. The best way to improve your skills as an eyelash extension artist is by practicing. In order to get the best of this lash map, you can ask your friends and family who like to have a natural look, to practice your eyelash extension mapping and application.
