If you're just thinking about jumping on lashes and starting your career as a lash artist, we'd want to go over some important items that are both practical and affordable so you can get started right away.

Whether you're lashing from home or in a studio, there are some supplies that you can get on a budget to get started.

 

LASHES

The importance of lashes is undeniable. Without lashes, it's impossible to do eyelash extensions. But how do you pick one?

There are classic lashes, volume lashes, easy fans, color lashes to mention a few. 

So, in general, you should stick to your training and what you've been taught. If you've just been trained in classic, you can only give classic service, if you want to add volume, you can use premade or promade fans, which don't require you to have been trained in volume.

There will be a lot of various types of lashes to choose from. For promade lashes, it is different because they are handmade and you basically pick them off but one by and then the premade lashes actually just going to be in a box.

Typically, most premade lashes come in a box, with different lashes on each of the sticky strips. So they won't be loose, instead, they'll be attached to the strand.

If you're a new lash artist, the best thing we can suggest is ordering a little bit of everything, such as a few different companies and brands. Experiment with a variety of lash styles, such as classic lashes, flat lashes, and cashmere lashes.

Try a different variety, compare them, and decide which ones you like best, and then you can take it from there.

LASH ADHESIVE

When purchasing lash adhesives, use a hygrometer to determine the humidity and temperature levels in your lash room, then choose the appropriate adhesive.

Avoid using fast-drying lash glue (less than half a second drying time) if you're a new lash artist because your hands are still slow and you don't want to be rushed while learning your skills. Take your time, be patient, and practice more, as your hands become faster and more experienced, you'll be able to find a faster adhesive that's perfect for you.

Because the way you work needs you to isolate, take the extension, and apply it, it will take some time for you to do so. If you use a fast-drying adhesive, such as 0.05, the lash will already be dry by the time you put it to the natural lashes, resulting in poor retention.

LASH TWEEZERS

Tweezers are another important tool, similar to glue and lashes, you'll need to find the ones that are perfect for you. Tweezers with a lighter weight are preferred by some lash artists.

To figure out which ones you prefer, try a few different varieties from a few different companies. Also, keep in mind that even if you're buying these from the same company, there may be slight variations because each tweezer is made individually and thus has a slightly different sweet spot. So you just have to test them when you get them.

When selecting the best pair of lash tweezers, there are a few factors to consider.

 

For Classic Lashes

Straight eyelash tweezers are most typically used to apply classic eyelashes. The fine point tip of this tweezer makes lash isolation and popping out grown-out lashes a breeze.

EYELASH PATCHES

As a lash artist, you must use the right patches for each of your client types in order to ensure their comfort. There are different types of under eye patches. You can have the regular under eye patches, the gel patches, and the microfoam. 

For the regular under eye patches, the advantage is that they are very easy to work with, as they are very thin, making it very easy to access the inner corners and providing comfort for clients.

For the gel under eye patches, you can work with clients who have fairly thick under lashes, and they have a variety of shapes to choose from. This type of under-eye patch is ideal for clients with extremely unruly lower lashes that require reapplication every 15 to 20 minutes.

For the microfoam under eye patches, these are the thickest patches currently available. They'll be a lot thicker, and they'll be ideal for clients with extremely coarse under lashes because they'll stay in place and won't move around like other types of lash patches.

LASH PRIMER

A primer is a lash pre-treatment that helps the lashes stay in place for longer.  Many lash artists are unsure what a primer is and how to properly prime the lashes, and I believe that if you're not priming and prepping the lashes properly, you'll have a lot of retention problems.

It might be difficult to tell whether a client is oily because it isn't always visible, and you may not realize until the lash has slipped off. You may need to use a primer if the humidity and temperature are ideal yet your lashes are falling out.
