Cheryn International’s FAQ's
: "What makes your false eyelashes different from those sold in department stores and how long do they last?"
Our lashes are different from those found in stores in how they are
made and how natural they look when you're wearing them. They are made
by a second-generation artisan in New York City. She ties each lash by
hand and puts a drop of glue at each lash base. Our lashes are
well-made, though delicate, but durable. The length of your lashes will
last is anywhere, on average, between one month to several months. It
depends on how gently you handle them.
: "How young is too young to wear your lashes?"
Of course that will depend on your child's own ability in being able to
apply them. I wouldn't suggest younger than 12 years old. However, I
would highly suggest that all children wear the waterproof makeup we
carry. That is actually my most suggested product because it stays on
so well that it enables a person to swim, cry, sweat, water ski, scuba,
etc. without the concerns of their makeup coming off.
: "How do I apply the lashes?"
First of all I'd like to say, "Practice does make perfect!" When
learning to apply lashes, be patient. It will take some practice. Many
young teen girls I know can apply these lashes within 5 minutes. I
suggest you purchase the cheap brands from local stores to practice
with before using ours.
THE STEPS TO APPLY THE LASHES ARE AS FOLLOWS:
TO PREPARE LASHES: Flex band with fingers to relax for easier
application. Place lash band on eyelid as close to your natural lash
band as possible. The inner corner of the lashes should be placed about
1/3 of the way in from the inner corner of your eye. If band should
extend beyond natural lash line, snip off the excess from the outside
corner, a few hairs at a time. Trim length of lashes, if desired,
following original pattern.
2. To APPLY ADHESIVE: Hold eyelash
with your thumb on top of the curl. Apply a thin line of adhesive to
the top of the base and let adhesive set for about 60 seconds, until
3. TO APPLY LASHES: Apply lashes near or on base of your
natural lash line. With tweezers or your fingers, gently press along
lash base to secure. (I begin from the outside of my eye). Experience
will show you exact are of placement for comfortable fit.
LIFTING OCCURS: Reapply glue with toothpick by lifting area with
tweezers or finger and placing glue bead in lifted area. As you wear
false eyelashes you'll learn to detect if lashes have lifted just by
how they feel upon your lid.
5. TO REMOVE LASHES: Hold outer
corner of lash and gently peel downward causing easing lash away from
lid toward inner corner. If eyelash does not remove easily, take a warm
washcloth and place over closed eyes to loosen adhesive. Usually this
will not cause your own lashes to come out.
: "How do I remove the glue from the eyelashes?"
: Remove any adhesive left on your skin and brows or lashes using our
Ardell Lashfree Eyelash Adhesive Remover. Rub solution to dissolve glue (do not saturate) and gently pick off
adhesive, then store them for future use. If you wear mascara, it will come off as well using the same method. Then dry them and reshape the lashes by wrapping
them gently around your finger. Store the brows in their box.
*To remove lashes:
Close eye, wet an eyeliner brush with solvent and
stroke solution over adhesive. Then apply remover on band, let soften glue, and
pick off gently.
*To remove brows:
Wet an eyeliner brush with solvent
and stroke solution over adhesive, beginning at edges of brow. Gently remove
brow as lifting occurs, adding more remover as needed.
: "What brands of glue do you suggest?"
: Everyone will have their preference because it depends on each person's skin type. We suggest the "clear" for beginners or light haired people, since the dark color can leave your eye looking smudged if you have to move them around on your eyelid when applying them.
We designed a line of six lash styles
which range from discreet to dramatic.
(formerly known as "Shhh") are the most discreet. We suggest these for
women, men and teen-age children who don't want to draw any attention
to their eyes.
" is a medium-length version of "Secret/Shhh". "Lace", (formerly known as "Delicate") and the "Classic"
(formerly known as "Sparkle
look very natural, too, and are the length of average lashes. These
three are our favorites for not drawing unwanted attention.
"Sultry Lower Lashes"
are new to our line. Since it has been difficult to find a truly natural looking lower lash I have never offered any, however, this style is the best I have found and it can also be used for the upper lashes for those who want to have a "transitional style" for the in-between growth stages.
following three styles are fuller in appearance. They are wonderful for
the wearer who wants to bring more attention to their eyes, but still
have a natural looking false eyelash.
" (formerly known as "Flair") is fuller, fine and natural looking.
" (formerly known as "Twiggy") is softly spikey.
" is a thicker classic cut look.
: "How do they stay on if I don't have any eyelashes for them to be glued to? Will they prevent new lashes from growing in?"
Our eyelashes are actually made for the lashless eye, so they'll stay
on wonderfully with or without eyelashes. The band is lighter and a
little wider than the lashes in the stores so they stay on very well.
They can be applied above or below natural lashes on your eye. Also,
wearing lashes will not prevent your own eyelashes from growing in.
: "How waterproof is your eyeliner and eyebrow make-up?"
First of all, Cheryn has suffered from lack of eyebrows and eyelashes
on and off since 1972 so she well understands the need for eye and brow
make-up that will stay on. She was always hesitant to swim, water-ski,
scuba dive, cry, and even sleep for fear that her makeup would have
come off. When she started her company it was for the very reason to be
able to offer products that would provide a feeling of freedom from
these fears. She did find such a makeup line in Europe. Our eyeliners
and eyebrow pencils are waterproof and mechanical -- so no more
concerns about heat softening your pencils are making it impossible to
be sharpened. This is the best make-up I've found and it actually takes
considerable effort to completely remove the eyeliner. You can feel
comfortable to cry, perspire, or pretty much anything else that might
easily smudge your make-up without being concerned that your make-up
will come off. It also doesn't gather in the corner of the eyes as
liner often does. However, if you are perspiring in the heat, or
participate in water sports and other activities involving water then
you may need a "touch-up." This make-up will remove concerns about
having a "blank"look ever again.
: "I don't
want my young child to look like they are wearing makeup. How do I
apply your makeup so that they look like they aren't wearing any?"
Apply the liner along the area where lashes normally would be so that
it fills in the pale lid, restoring it's natural dark color. The
"Raven" eyeliner, which is a black color, is great for everyone because
it can be applied to be light or dark. I suggest "Brownie" eyeliner,
which is a dark brown color, for blonds and all young children. Boys
can wear this makeup, too.
