In this tutorial, you’ll see the steps to a classic eyelash extension.
Today I want to talk to you and teach you about classic eyebrow extensions. This extension is the Preliminary to volume and mega-volume eyebrow extensions. The material used here is of the highest possible quality. The products you use, including false eyebrows and glue is essential for
a good extension and to prevent damaging the client’s natural eyebrows. I’m going to perform this process on one eye first.
You have to clean the eyes completely to remove the oil from the eyebrows. We’re going to use the anti-fungus liquid. Anti-fungus comes in liquid and foam forms. You can use either type of this material. Use your material to clean the eyebrows completely to remove oil or any remaining mascara. The next material you have to use is a primer. After applying anti-fungus, wait for one minute for the material to dry, and then use your primer. We wash the eyelashes to make sure there are no germs or pollution left on them. Wait one minute for the primer to dry and then attach your pads under the eyes to start the extension process.
After applying your anti-fungus and primer to clean the eyelashes, it’s time to add the pad under the eyes to cover the lower lashes. I’m using a hypoallergenic paper pad because most plant based pads can cause allergies and the paper pads would do just fine. We have to cover the lower lashes completely to avoid adding glue to them when attaching your false lashes. Tell the client to look up, pull the lower eyelids down using your finger and put the pad on the lower eyelashes without letting it enter the eyes because it could irritate the eyes and cause redness and itching. Cover the lower lashes completely without letting the pad enter the eyes. Tell the client to close her eyes to check if the upper eyelashes lie on the pad.
After applying the pad, you have to use a starter. The starter is a material used to prepare the eyelashes for extension and to apply glue in room temperatures. Start adding small amounts of the starter to get the eyelashes ready. The starter is a material used to prepare the eyelashes for extension and to apply the type of glue you have in mind. We have different types of glue. The type of glue you use is very important and the temperature you’re operating under. I use a keratin glue, which does not damage the eyelashes at all, it’s organic and light, and I always recommend it to all my students. Moreover, the false eyelash we use is organic and made of natural hair and fibers. It’s very lightweight and looks very natural on the eyes.
When the starter has been applied, it’s time to do our measurements for the eyelashes we want to attach. You should pay attention to the form of the eyes, its size, type, curl levels and even if it has ptosis or not. All of these you should learn in classes and during training. Based on the client’s eye size and the puff on the eye, I’ve chosen C-lash type for they eyelashes in 0.02 size. Now I’ll note the sizes I want to use on the eye and write them down on the pad. As I said, we have to determine the false lash sizes based on the size of the eye, eyelashes and the eyelids. These measurements will help us during the procedure, prevent mistakes and make the work faster.
Brush the eyelashes first. No matter where you want to start adding the false lashes, you must separate the eyelashes thoroughly. Not a single eyelash should be stuck to the other. This is because if one of the two stuck eyelashes are growing, it will pull the other eyelash and pluck it out. This is very damaging to the eyelashes. I’ve smeared my C-lash 0.02 type eyelash in glue and separated the eyelashes so no two strands are stuck together. Put the extension slowly on the eyelash. How it for a few seconds using you pincer so it’s dry, and then let it go. Separate the eyelash and put the extension on the surface on the eyelash. Again, hold the eyelashes for a few seconds before letting go, to make sure the eyelashes won’t stick together. I can’t stress this enough, it’s very important for the eyelashes not to stick together, otherwise, one eyelash might pluck the other one out during its growth phase.
If you know enough about eyelashes, you can easily tell an eyelash strand in its growth phase from one in its resting phase and can attach the extension to the eyelash in the resting phase. This way the extension will last one month in good conditions and won't hurt the client's eyes.
If you keep what we’ve said so far in mind, like not letting the eyelashes stick together, choosing the right size and type of false eyelash and using a small amount of glue, you can continue like this and add false lashes across the eyelash. Your choice should also include what the client wants their eyelashes to look like and its volume.
This concludes our tutorial.Until next time, goodbye.
