What is the Most Natural Eyelash Extension Curl?

Eyelash extensions are a popular beauty trend that can help you achieve a natural look with minimal effort. There are several types of eyelash extensions, such as curl B, C, D and L+. The most natural looking curl is the J curl, which is especially suitable for customers who have straight eyelashes pointing straight or upwards. If you apply a J-curl to natural eyelashes with a descending appearance, your eyes will look smaller and heavier.
