Lash extensions are a great way to give your eyes the pop they need without using any other makeup. They also cut down on the time spent putting on your regular eye makeup.
The most common lash extension materials are mink, faux mink and silk but salons may carry other options as well depending on what the client wants to achieve. They are available in a variety of lengths and curls and a master lash artist will discuss your needs with you to customize the look to match.
They come in different shapes and sizes too – from tiny to large. This is what makes lash extensions such an incredibly versatile treatment.
During the consultation, the lash artist will take your lashes and face shape into account to help you decide on the best style for you. Some clients like to go for a more dramatic look while others may prefer to go for a more natural classic set of lashes that will frame their face and make them look more attractive.
A good lash artist will always make sure to get your skin type and allergies into consideration when applying your lashes. This will ensure the lashes look their absolute best and do not cause any issues in the future.
Your lash artist will also take into account your hair color, texture and thickness when creating a custom look for you. This will ensure that your lashes will be as natural as possible, and that the hair will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your face.
Another thing your lash artist should consider is your natural lash length and curl. Generally, longer lashes are preferred to have more dramatic effect, while shorter lashes tend to have less of a visual impact.
The lash artists should also keep in mind the lash shape and the size of each eye, as this will have a huge influence on the look of your lashes. This is important to avoid over-styling your lashes and giving them a too-large, or too-small, appearance.
When choosing your lash artist, choose one that has extensive experience in this field and is properly licensed. This is essential for your safety and the safety of your clients’ eyes, as improperly applied lashes can cause serious damage to the lashes and surrounding areas.
In addition, it’s also important to choose a lash artist that you trust and are comfortable with. This is crucial for both your own peace of mind as well as your clients’ safety, and will ensure that you can create a truly beautiful lash look that will be long-lasting.
It’s also important to be patient and wait for the extensions to fully set before removing them. You should not touch your lashes, rub them, or use any form of mechanical eyelash curlers to remove the lash extensions as this will cause premature shedding and breakage.
The best time to remove your lash extensions is before bedtime, so they can be completely dry before you get into bed and fall out naturally during the night. It is also important to brush your lashes daily with a soft toothbrush to keep them clean and free from debris.
