Lash patches are a great way to help keep the lashes in place. If a client is new, it can help them relax and stay comfortable during the process. It also helps to prevent any potential damage to their natural lashes during the application process.

Under-eye patches are essential for covering the lower lashes during an eyelash extension application. Choosing the right kind of eye patch is also essential for a relaxing and safe application for the client.
Before we go to the steps, let me show you the difference under eye pads you can use depending on the client's shape:
We've made the most comfortable under-eye pads, ever! These gel patches have a unique shape that enables better positioning to fit the shape of each client's under eye area, plus they offer a soothing feeling.
These under eye pads provides maximum comfort for your client during a lash application. The thin and flexible nature of the patch allows for an easy application and comfortable fit under the eye area.
Its ergonomic shape is specifically designed to fit most eye shapes. It calms the skin, making it feel at ease and comfortable throughout the eyelash application process.
These easy-on, easy-off hydrogel under eye patches are made to hold the lower lashes in place during a lash application, and keep them in place. We ensure that these eye pads won't slide or slip once they're on your client's skin. Easy removal goes hand in hand with a simple application. It has cuts at the edges to allow maximum repositioning.
Having the under eye pads in a soothing pink color is not the only reason why many clients love this! This under-eye pad doesn't move while applying lash extensions. It's made of an incredibly soft, hypoallergenic, hydrogel that adheres to the skin and doesn't slide off while applying lash extensions.
We've designed these black gel pads just for lash clients with blonde or white natural lashes to work best since they offer a dark background on which those lighter lashes can show. They adhere firmly to the skin, come off easily after being applied and help moisturize and tighten the area around the eyes.
One of the keys to a flawless lash extension application is the proper placement of under-eye patches. You can improve the separation procedure and apply suitable extensions by securing the lower lashes, which will help you make the application smoother and faster.
Sometimes, it’s a bit tricky to apply lash patches. I hope these simple tips will help you with this.
Keep it straight
Make sure your clients look straight up as you tape and make sure that they don’t talk during the process. This will keep any extra lashes from popping up!
DON’T GET TOO CLOSE
One of the most difficult things to balance is getting the lashes to stay down while not getting too close to the client’s eyes.
You want to keep the gel pads at least 2-3 mm, away from the client’s waterline.
When the client closes their eyes, ask them if they feel any pinching or discomfort. Then gently pull the tape or pads to readjust whole their eyes are closed.
