EYELASH EXTENSION APPLICATION: MOVING EYES

Clients twitching and moving eyes during application can be a big issue when applying lash extensions. If the eye is constantly moving it creates a risk of adhesive getting into the eye. Lash artists are working with tweezers and adhesive very closely to the client’s eyes, it is risky to have a client who isn't stable. It may also cause the lash artist to incorrectly apply the lashes, resulting in early shedding.

Most eyelid spasms go away on their own after a few days or even weeks if not treated. If the probable reasons do not go away, you might strive to eliminate or lessen them.

How to stop eye twitching during lash extensions?

If you have clients who have fluttery eyes that move all the time, as a lash artist, whether newbie or professional, it can be difficult to isolate, place extensions, or complete a full set or fills when the client's eyes are fluttering.

 

LASH TECHNIQUE #1

To apply a little pressure on the top of the eyelid, use an eye pad and place it on the top of the eyelid. This will also stop the eyelid from shaking as much.

 

LASH TECHNIQUE #2

To add more pressure to the top of the eyelid, cut a long piece of paper tape and place it on the top of the eye pad. The extra pressure might sometimes keep the lids from moving too much.

 

LASH TECHNIQUE #3

Place your sterilized penny on the top of the eyelid and secure it with paper tape. You have the option of crisscrossing it or placing it straight on the penny. Sometimes, that's enough to get the job done. The coldness of the penny might also help to calm fluttering eyelids.

Keep in mind sometimes this will do the trick, you may need to lash your client with a penny on their lid for the entire lash application. If you remove it, believing it would never happen again, and something triggers it, their eyes begin to twitch, you will have to start over.

 

LASH TECHNIQUE #4

Place a gel pad on your client’s upper lid, “sandwiching” the lash line, and calming the moving lids. If the additional gel pad isn’t enough to settle the moving lashes, use paper or plastic tape to attach the upper and lower gel pads together.

FLUTTER EYELASHES TIPS AND TRICKS

  • Be sure your client has not drunk coffee or any caffeinated drinks before coming in for her lash appointment.
  • Create a relaxing ambiance. Put a piece of relaxing music, maybe use a scented and aromatic candle
  • Try keeping the talking to a minimum. When talking, the eyes seem to flutter a bit more.
  • Ask your client if the light being used is bothering them. If so, try to dim the light to the lightest possible.
  • Talk a bit less or no talking at all, this way clients will be able to relax and have a good nap while having her session.
