It’s lash extensions in the spotlight today!
LashBase products are amazing!
1. So important to keep your lashes clean. helps keep your lashes looking fabulous for longer, stops you getting nasty eye infections and also allows me to spend the whole appointment lashing not cleaning! This is why it’s important to come to your appointment, eye make up free.
it takes a little squirt of foam, a brush through, rinse off and dry. cleanser and brush can be purchased through me for £13 and lasts ages!
2. Protein remover pads. These are used as standard, even on cleaned lashes, to remove proteins and small amounts of makeup left on.
3. Primer and accelerator
A tiny amount is applied to the lashes to remove oils, ensuring that the base has the best service conditions for application and retention.
4. Lash extension glue. I love Extreme plus adhesive!
Each lash is gently dipped into the glue dot, just a small amount of glue remaining.
This is placed on the lash and with a fast cure time of within 2 seconds, I can move onto the next lash!
Up to 150 lashes per eye! The fuller the natural lashes, the fuller the set.
5. Lashes come in a range of lengths, from 7, used in inner corners of the eye, up to 15.
They also come in different thicknesses. From 0.15 which is generally your classic lash thickness, onto 0.7 for Russian and 0.5 and 0.3 for those full fluffy volume Russian sets. Overloading lashes with heavy lashes will cause irritation and damage to the natural lash.
Also different curls. From a C curl which is very natural, Cc curl, my favourite as suits most eye shapes, D curl which as an extreme curl and a new curl, which I love, is M. This is straight at the base with a lovely curl at the end. Helps retention and ideal for hooded eyes.
The shape of the eye, condition and natural thickness of the lashes and clients are deciding factors.
6. Removal cream. So important so remove correctly. Online DIY do not work. Either wait to naturally fall out of contact me to remove.
No picking, fiddling or pulling. Lash extensions should not damage lashes but the way you remove, can!
Hope you’ve enjoyed this little educational post. I’ll be putting more on over the next week! - 18 minutes ago
