1. Things to Avoid When Applying Eyelash Extensions
- Using Too Much Adhesive: One of the biggest mistakes lash artists make is using too much adhesive. This can cause the extensions to stick to the natural lashes, leading to clumps, discomfort, and even loss of natural lashes.
If the eyelash extension artist is making fan lashes themselves, they will need to be proficient in the technique of hand-making fans. This involves using tweezers to create a fan out of several individual lashes and then carefully securing the base of the fan with adhesive. The artist will also need to be skilled in controlling the amount of adhesive used and ensuring that the fan is symmetrical and properly spaced.
A good rule of thumb is to use a tiny drop of adhesive, about the size of a pinhead, for each extension. It's important to note that the exact amount of adhesive needed may vary depending on the type and size of the extensions being used, as well as the artist's personal technique and experience.
One easy way to solve this is by using pre-made fans which help control the amount of adhesive used. With pre-made fans, you can be sure that each extension is coated with just the right amount of glue, ensuring a secure attachment without the risk of using too much adhesive. This not only avoids damage to natural lashes but also saves time and effort during the application process.

- Improper Placement of Extensions: Another common mistake is placing the extensions too close to the lash line or at an angle that pulls on the natural lashes. This can cause the natural lashes to break or become weak. Make sure to place the extensions carefully and at the right distance from the lash line.
- Failure to Isolate Natural Lashes: Isolating natural lashes is a crucial step in eyelash extension application. Failure to isolate natural lashes can lead to the extensions sticking together, causing discomfort, and even breakage of natural lashes.
- Rushing Through the Process: Are you in a hurry to finish your eyelash extension appointments? Slow down! Rushing through the process can cause a lot of damage to your customer's natural lashes. Improper placement, using too much adhesive, and failure to isolate lashes can lead to unhappy clients and bad reviews. Take a deep breath, relax, and give each lash the attention it deserves. And if you're worried about taking too long, using pre-made fans can actually save you time and ensure consistent, high-quality results.
