There are different eyelash fan technique that you have to master in order to create a perfect lash fans: 

Shimmy Method

Rolling on the strip method

Pinch Method

Is a very popular method because it also creates that symmetrical look and it also creates a thin foot for your lash fans. You’re going to thread the lash tweezers through the lashes, picking a thickness you need for your lash fans.

Grab your eyelash extension and apply pressure on your lash tweezers with heavy firm grip to prevent from losing any lash extension. 

Using your thumb and index finger run through pinch the base and make sure to keep your tweezers completely tight. 

After pinching the base, release pressure on the tweezers and tip your lash fans on your adhesive.

HOW TO PREVENT LASH FANS FROM COLLAPSING?

Do your eyelash fan fall apart when you take them with your tweezers? Why does this happen? Most outrun it’s because your lash tweezers is too tight and rigid and you are holding it too tight.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

What I do is release the lash tweezes lightly and dip the leg of the fans into the lash glue. What happens in that case? The lash fans comes together. Additional top for good retention, make sure that when applying the eyelash extension, you have well-attached eyelash extension.

An eyelash extension placed with poor placement has a small chance for survival. We want the eyelash extension and the base of the natural lash to lay flat on one another. This will ensure a secure connection and longer lasting extensions.

It’s not always your adhesive that causing premature fall out, it can be that the attachment wasn’t right.

HOW TO MAKE LASH FANS WITH SHORTER LENGTHS?

For inner corners and shorter lashes it’s best practice to always use shorter lengths such as 4mm-5mm-6mm. Ideally. This will ensure a more uniform lash set, and ensure that your clients lash integrity remains intact.

CONCLUSION

To all our newbies out there, please know that you are basically starting, there are plenty of times to practice. However, you also have to take note that you have to do it consistently. 

Please note that you have to familiarize yourself with the kind of lash tweezers you are going to use to make your lash fans, the kind of lashes and other lash products needed. 

It's like getting to know them, so you can obviously work well together. 

There are a lot of tutorials around the internet, I felt that the new generation of lash artists are luckier in terms of the fact that resources are readily made available online, unlike during my time that we need to have a mentor or learn on our own. 

I would also suggest that if you have the budget for online eyelash extension training, by all means go for a proper training, tips and tricks will be taught during the training and it will also enhance your skills.
