Mapping lash extensions?

See more ideas about eyelash extensions, eyelash extension styles,. Applying eyelash extensions takes a lot of time and practice. However, it requires more than just a firm hand. Applying the same length of eyelashes along the eyelash strip can result in an unnatural look, but you can't apply different lengths randomly.

Eyelash mapping allows you to determine what length of extension you should use where on the lash line. The process itself is simple, but you might need some practice before knowing what your customer needs becomes instinct.

Eyelash mapping

is a technique for planning what lengths, curls and thicknesses you'll use and where, in order to create a fabulous set of eyelash extensions with the style and level of drama that your client desires, and that also adapts to the shape of their natural eyes and eyelashes. With such a wide variety of eyelash extension lengths, thicknesses and curls, it's easy to fall into complacency when choosing fail-safe styles and styles.

You can draw the desired lengths and mapping before your customer arrives (if you already know the map you plan to use, for example, if you're a regular customer, you'll always have the same style).

You should avoid squirrel mapping, as it will make your eyes look droopy like the sad eyes of a puppy.

Eyelash mapping is the art of planning which eyelashes you will place to create the desired style, making marks on the skin and on a gel pad. Whatever technique you prefer, be sure to scale your eyelashes as you move from one section to the next. Being an eyelash technician involves much more than mastering the ability to successfully apply extensions to natural lashes. No matter how long you've been whipping, the skills of correctly mapping your eyelashes are essential to providing perfect eyelash extensions to your clients.

Place the pads under your eyes and mark the edges and midpoints of the eyelashes with a brightly colored pen. While cat's-eye lashes are longer in the outer corners, the squirrel eye is longer about two-thirds of the lash line, or around the arch of the brow if the brows are perfectly shaped, and the lashes taper slightly shorter in the outer corner. Let's start with the basics and you need to plot your sets because it will allow you to stick to the map and create the exact look your client asks for. Using eyelash mapping is a great way to explore different styles and ensure that you're creating the most appropriate eyelash extension style for each individual eye shape.
