As a lash client, you already know a few important things—to always have a clean on hand, that no mascara is the best mascara, and any service that includes an hour long nap is worth incorporating into your life. But, your lash artist has a few more specks of wisdom to share to take you from lash novice to master client. We’ve scouted some insight from a few amazing lash artists, our Oakley Lashes Shop bring you the top ten things Mink Lashes Factory wants you to know.
“Clients should be aware that shorter lashes can achieve a fuller and bolder look. Often, longer extensions give a whispie—almost ‘spidery’ – effect. Some clients love that look, but some don’t! It’s important to know exactly what kind of result you’re going for before requesting long extensions to get a ‘dramatic’ set.”
“There are levels to volume lashes; beginner volume and advanced volume. Keep in mind the experience, skill level, and type of volume lashing Mink Lashes is capable of executing when booking your appointment to align your expectations with the outcome. Advanced volume boasts the dark, uniform lash line that saturates Instagram and can sometimes only be achieved after years of honing in on the craft.”
“As lash artists, we want to make sure that you have the best experience possible Mink Lashes when getting your lashes done! During the service, if you are in any discomfort—such as burning, or the tape or eye pads [are] rubbing your eyes, please make us aware so that we are able right away to prevent redness or irritation to the eyes. If you have any problems after the service, like allergic reactions or eye redness, we can recommend the best options to help in these cases.”
“Don’t come with dirty lashes. As a courtesy to Mink Lashes please cleanse and brush your lashes before your fill. This will give me more time lashing, and the retention of your new set will be amazing. Clean bonds, better retention. Think abou it this way: who goes to the dentist without brushing first?”
“Often times with false lashes, Mink Lashes(where the longest lashes are at the outer corners) makes the eyes look larger. But this doesn’t translate very well to lash extensions—which, unlike strip lashes, use your natural lashes as a base. The lashes on your outer eye naturally grow shorter, and are often unable to support the weight of ultra long extensions. So overloading the ends with super long extensions creates a droopy, winged effect—which isn’t flattering for anyone. Instead, forgo the cat eye, and ask for a styling where the longest lengths are between the mid and outer eye.” (@beimitina_lashes)
“I would like for my clients to understand just because they have lash extensions doesn’t mean they have to avoid water/water activities! I promote lash extensions as a great alternative to mascara for those who enjoy time in the water!”
“One of the things Mink Lashes I consider a top priority to let my client’s know, is that talking during the service can negatively affect their results in so many ways. So I’ll include something like this in their confirmation message: ‘Unfortunately, as much as I love chatting with my clients, the more we talk the harder it is to for me to achieve seamless application, work quickly, and focus on the dynamic design pattern I have customized for you.
I want your lashes [to be] the best they can be—super full and styled perfectly—so just keep that in mind and feel free to bring headphones if you’d like. I want you to be able to fully enjoy this relaxing service!’. I always feel like if they knew they were doing something that was compromising their results, they would prefer to know! Most people don’t even realize it’s an issue, so it’s just better to let them know in a polite and friendly way.”—(@beimitina_lashes)
“One thing I wish clients Mink Lashes Factory knew and understood is that lash retention does not just happen [because] the lash artist [keeps] up on fresh products, or proper lash application! Lash retention is also [caused by] seasons changing, lash cleanliness, their makeup routine, medications, oily or dry skin, shed cycles—you name it! It’s important to educate your clients, but also it takes understanding that [retention does] not always fall back on the lash artist. With education and commitment on both ends to keep their lashes happy and healthy, everyone will understand lashes better!” Skip the caffeine Mink Lashes Factory.
“Consuming caffeine Mink Lashes Factory before your lash appointment can cause your eyes to flutter or twitch. This can be a nightmare when it comes to getting each Mink Lashes lash properly isolated and bonded. Not to mention, it’s potentially dangerous—think sharp tweezers. Avoid caffeine at least one hour prior to your appointment, and your lash artist will thank you!”
How to put on false eyelashes Mink Lashes Factory?
Measure the length of the fake eyelashes on your eyes without glue. More often than not, the false lashes are too long so you need to trim them to fit the width of your lash line Mink Lashes Factory.
Make sure you don’t cut the length too short; you can always trim it later. The fake eyelashes should be longer towards the outer corner of your eye, and the length should vary slightly.
Apply a thin layer of glue from edge to edge on the stem of the false lashes. Let it air dry or wait awhile until the glue starts to set. It sticks better and won’t move as much on your eye. You want also be make sure that your eyelids are free of any oil Mink Lashes Factory.
With your fingers or tweezers, apply the fake mink eyelashes very close to your natural lash line, starting from outer corner of your eye and then press it lightly onto the inner corner. Press from end to end and hold until the glue dries, about 30-60 seconds Mink Lashes Factory.
