Expert Tips For Creating The Perfect Doll Eye Lash Map

The proper lash mapping is essential whether your client is getting a full set of lashes or just adding some extra length to their natural lashes. When applying lash extensions, we can use different types of "maps". A doll eye lash map is a popular choice because it can make your client's eyes look larger and more doll-like. The inner corners of the eyes also get lashes, which help open up the eyes and make them appear brighter and fuller.

WHAT IS A DOLL EYE LASH MAP?

Lash mapping is a technique used in lash extensions to identify the optimal placement of lashes. The extensions must be placed in the right spots because if they aren't, they will look unnatural and potentially uneven.

This idea of a doll eye lash map uses shorter lashes on the inner corners, longer in the middle and shorter lashes on the outer corners.

Doll eyelash extensions create a doll-like appearance, accentuating the natural beauty to make your clients feel charming and attractive. This style complements monolid, hooded and almond eyes, opening up the face and creating a really flattering look.

To create this look with your lash extension application, you need to use multiple different sizes of lashes when applying them onto the natural lash line. This means you will need short and long lengths to achieve this lash look.

 

Before mapping, you need to assess your client's facial features and determine what type of style will compliment their features. ( We do have an entire ONLINE course on mapping, where we teach you this in-depth ) If interested in that course, here is the link Lash Mapping Online Course.

WHY LASH MAPPING IS IMPORTANT?

Learn how to avoid various errors when working with different eye shapes, and lash maps.

This illustration demonstrates why mapping is essential. This client had significantly downturned eyes. 

We did a squirrel mapping on the right, for this client making the eye significantly more downturned than usual, her downturned eyes got emphasized with this type of mapping.

Furthermore, we used 8-15mm D curl lengths, which resulted in a "droopy" aspect and a sad- puppy looking eye. This is a great visual showing how an incorrectly styled lash extension set can emphasize certain unflattering features.

In contrast, on the left eye, we are using a shorter length of 7-12mm, "the doll eye mapping" This sort of mapping elevates the eye by focusing on the middle of the eye and away from the outer corners. This lash mapping improves the visual appearance of the drooping outer corners, by providing a nice lifting effect.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CAT EYE, DOLL EYE AND NATURAL EYE?

The cat eye starts short on the inner corner and is longer on the outer corner. It is suitable for those clients with round eyes since it levels out the contour and gives a seductive appearance. But, clients with upturned or downturned eyes should avoid the cat eye since it can make their eyes look smaller and emphasize the outer corners making them even more downturned.

The doll eye map starts short on the inner corner, longer in the middle, then shorter at the outer corner. It creates a nice open-up look and brightens up the face, ideal for monolid, hooded, and almond eyes.

 

As for the natural eye, the lash extensions are made to match the lengths of the client's natural lashes, with the longest lashes touching the brow arch. A natural eye looks good on everyone, but this isn't the look for your client if she wants a more dramatic look with her lashes.

Lash Mapping Styles

 

 

Cat Mapping:  Use the longest lashes towards the outside edge of the lashes to create the illusion of wide-set "exotic" eyes. If your client has Almond, close-set eyes, this is an appropriate choice for this client. 

Doll: 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 will work perfectly with this mapping.

Squirrel: To achieve this look, start short and gradually lengthen, with the halfway point being the most extended length, before shortening progressively again.

WHO IS SUITABLE FOR DOLL EYE MAPPING?

Doll eye lashes are ideal for clients who have smaller eyes, as the lashes will give the illusion of a wider eye. Doll eyes also work well for those with very fine or sparse lashes as they add volume and length without weighing down the client's natural lashes.

Client with almond-shaped eyes: a doll eye look will make their eyes appear more prominent, but if the eyes are close together, avoid this lash style as it may make the eyes seem excessively enormous.

 

Client with hooded eyes or monolids: this lash style is perfect for this type of eyes. It will keep them looking lifted and open.

 

Client with wide-set eyes: doll eyes extensions make their eyes appear larger.

 

 

Contraindications with doll eye mapping

Clients with really round eyes are not the best candidates for the doll eye mapping, since this map style can emphasize the round shape.

Clients with eyes really close together are not ideal candidates, since it can also emphasize the closeness of the client's eyes.

Clients who like a really natural look may also not be the most ideal candidates for this lash map, since it can be on the dramatic side, and is more appropriate for clients that love a very full and dramatic look, especially with volume and mega volume styles. * A doll map classic set, in shorter lengths can still look fairly natural with this type of lash map.

HOW TO CREATE A DOLL EYE LASH MAP?

Doll eyelashes are a popular choice for lash extensions. This look is very natural and soft but still very glamorous. The doll eyelash map aims to make sure the natural lashes have a uniform appearance and the look of having a doll eye putting the most amount of emphasis in the middle of the eye.

Doll eyelash extensions

 

STEP #1 

Create 5 sections. Eyelash extensions come in various lengths in each section. You can use the eye patches to map out your set. (Shorter lengths on the inner, longer lengths on the middle and shorter lengths on the outer)

 

STEP #2

Start from the inner corner of your client's eye and use the shorter extensions to fill in the space.

The extensions will gradually lengthen until they reach the center of the eye. (You can use 8 to 12mm lengths). 
If your client wants longer lashes, you can use longer lengths or shorter lengths if your client wants a more natural set.

 

STEP #3

The final section is essential for a clean lash set. You can use the same lash lengths as in the inner corner. The transition should be seamless, so the lash line appears completely natural.

What are the different types of lash curls?

As lash artists, it's important to familiarize ourselves with the various lash curl options available. By understanding the unique characteristics of each curl, we can better cater to our clients' preferences and create stunning lash looks tailored to their desires. Let's explore the different lash curl types and their suitability for different clients.

Lash curls

 

B LASH CURL

The B curl offers a subtle lift while maintaining a natural look. It is slightly curlier than the J curl, making it an excellent choice for clients seeking a touch of extra flair while still aiming for a natural appearance.

 

 

C LASH CURL

The C curl is a popular choice among clients, providing a lash-curler-like lift that beautifully enhances the eyes. This curl works well on naturally slightly curlier lashes, resulting in a strong bond and impressive retention. Its pronounced curl creates a captivating effect, making it my personal go-to lash curl for many clients seeking a dramatic yet elegant look.

 

C+ LASH CURL

The C+ curl adds more curl than the C curl, often referred to as the "natural curl." It is a versatile option suitable for clients of all preferences and eye shapes, ensuring stunning results regardless of the desired style.

 

CC LASH CURL

The CC curl is a hybrid between the C and D curls, offering a delightful mix of both. It provides a balanced, eye-opening effect that appeals to a wide range of clients, making it a versatile choice for lash artists.

 

D LASH CURL

If your clients crave a full, dramatic look, the D curl is the perfect choice. This curl offers more lift and definition compared to the C curl, making it ideal for clients desiring a bold and captivating lash style. However, it's worth noting that the D curl may not be suitable for those with straight lashes or hooded eyes, as its curlier nature could potentially cause discomfort.

 

L LASH CURL

The L curl features a straight base that transitions to sit flat on the client's natural lash, making it particularly suitable for individuals with downward-pointing or straight lashes. This curl creates a dramatic effect that many clients adore, especially those with moonlit eyes or hooded eyes that benefit from the lifting properties of the L curl.

 

L+ LASH CURL

Similar to the L curl, the L+ curl boasts a sharp base but with a slightly curvier bend. This curl variation provides a touch of added curvature, offering a unique lash look for clients seeking a more pronounced lift.

 

M LASH CURL

The M curl is gaining popularity due to its exotic and eye-enhancing characteristics. It is specially designed for an "OPEN EYE" appearance, particularly for clients with naturally straight or downward-pointing lashes. This curl series beautifully emphasizes the eyes when applied correctly, making it an exciting option for lash artists to explore.

 

J LASH CURL

This curl is the most natural-looking, it's flat at the base, and the least curled of all the lash curls. The lash curl will lengthen your natural lashes but won't curl them significantly. This lash is perfect for individuals who want a more natural appearance. Because it looks too natural, it isn't used very often.

It is recommended to be used on straight lashes to ensure longer retention. So, if your clients opt to have an eyelash extension that looks so natural, the J curl is for your girl. 

 

 

As lash artists, being well-versed in the variety of lash curl options allows us to offer personalized lash looks that suit our client's preferences and eye shapes. From the subtly lifted B curl to the striking drama of the D curl, each lash curl type has its unique benefits. By understanding and selecting the most appropriate lash curl for our clients, we can create stunning lash extensions that enhance their natural beauty and leave them feeling confident and satisfied.
