What is lash mapping? It is a form of under-eye pad that is applied to the client's eyes. It aids the lash artist in determining the length of lash extensions to use and creating a lash set that complements the features and eye shape of the client.

In this blog, we will discuss lash mapping guide, why is it important for lash artists, and lash mapping styles but before that, let's get to know what you need.

This is the simple part, all you'll need are some eye pads and a pen.

Simply place them on top of the eye pad and use the sections as a guide to make pretty lashes. You can draw on the desired lengths prior to your client's arrival for added ease, and then select the sticker you need when you're ready.


PRO TIP: Before the appointment, ask the client to give you a photo of their eyes so you can check out their eye shape.

LASH MAPPING STYLES

You can then pick your lash map once you've determined your client's eye shape. There are several lash types to choose from, we've included a few lash maps examples below:

Lash Mapping

 

Cat: use the longest lashes towards the outside edge of the lashes to create the illusion of wide-set "exotic" eyes. Almond, close-set, and round eyes are all good choices.

Round: Applying lash extensions in the same direction as the natural lashes will give you fuller, longer-looking lashes while keeping the natural eyelash pattern. Almond and Upturned Eyes Suits for this style.

Squirrel: To achieve this look, start short and gradually lengthen, with the halfway point being the longest length, before gradually shortening again. Almond, Close-set, Downturned, Monolid, Hooded, Protruding, and Round eyes are all good choices.

Dolly: Establish the illusion of wide, open eyes by using longer lashes in the midsection of the lashes.  Almond and wide-set eyes go well together.

Kim K: One of the most common lash styles is Kim K. To achieve the Kim K look, spikes or the longer lengths are placed in different parts of the eye to produce a wispy set. Round and Almond eyes are both perfect for this lash style.

DOWNWARD FACING EYES

Downward facing eyes have a tendency to look droopy if they are styled incorrectly. There are some contraindications for clients with this type of eye shape. You really want to avoid the squirrel mapping since it will make the eyes look really droopy like sad puppy dog eyes. We want to avoid this at all cost.

HOW TO WORK WITH A CLIENT WHO'S EYES ARE FAR APART?

  1. Avoid cat eye and squirrel mapping since it will emphasize the distance between the 2 eyes making them look even further apart.
  2. Avoid really long lengths and strong curls like D DD, L and M on the outer corners as this will emphasize the outer corners.
  3. Pick dolly eye mapping and or a natural mapping in order to remove the emphasis on the outer corner of the clients eye and improve emphasis on the inner corner by filling in the inner corners fully.
  4. Fill in the inner corners really well, as this will really emphasize the eyes coming closer together and looking more balanced.
  5. Experiment with colors as this will put more emphasis on the clients eyes and remove the emphasis on the eyes looking not balanced.
