So - how close should you apply your extensions to the lash line? -
Depending on who you talk to, there will be a great variance on how far out they should be placed. Some technicians say they should be virtually seamless along the lash line, without touching the skin, while others say they should be up to 1mm from the skin. So what’s right? -
First, never ever touch the skin. With practice, you can place extensions close to the lash line without touching. -
Second, don’t go too far out. If you start at 2mm out and your clients lashes grow another 3mm, their extensions are going to twist, or they won’t last on the lash more than 3 weeks. The closer to the lash line they start, the longer they will stay put. -
The sweet spot is what you’re comfortable with. Get as close as possible without touching or placing farther than 1mm out. Ensure the base is secured and not lifted, and let that lash go!
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU CRY?😢💧💦 Getting eyelash extensions should be a completely pain free experience. If you experience any discomfort during the procedure, you should mention this immediately to your technician. This could be a sign that you have an allergic reaction to the glue. It is important to avoid crying as well as moisture during the cure period, but as soon as that period (12 to 24 hours) is over, cry all you want. Lash extensions are water-resistant. It is very important to not cry during the process as crying can spread the glue/vapors causing irritation. Crying during the process will also make it very difficult for the glue to dry and bond the extension to your lashes.
Crying during lash extension can be caused because of patches if they irritate your eye, or glue evaporations if you open your eyes during the process. Even you cried, don’t worry your eyelash technician will absorb all moisture with napkins and will continue to apply extension so eventually you’ll have the look of your dream. 🥰😍☺️ .
