What do lash artists do?

As an eyelash artist, you spend time consulting with each client about the type of look they want to achieve, whether it's glamorous lashes with volume or mega-volume, or as if they were wearing a permanent mascara. Extensions are the perfect way to increase confidence in a discreet and discrete way. Look, I'm not proud of it, but the first time I bought eyelash extensions, I forgot to ask all the important questions before my appointment. I was so excited to come out with big, fluttering eyelashes, with no need for fakes, that I researched absolutely nothing beforehand.

Eyelash extensions can make the eyes look bigger, the eyelashes fuller and the face more feminine. Who wouldn't want to totally wear the “I just work like that” look? Most eyelash artists are also small business owners, which means they set their own schedules, work schedules, prices, and more. That means that there is a wide variety in the income of eyelash artists. Eyelash artists can make a good living, but your actual income as an eyelash artist depends on several factors, such as your prices, the services you offer and the experience you offer as an eyelash artist.

I know that all the specialists in eyelash extensions tell you that they won't damage your natural eyelashes if done correctly, but maybe I only have very weak eyelashes, I would go to the best eyelash technicians, and every time my last extension fell out, they greeted me with natural eyelashes that were much shorter than when I started. Using eyelashes that are too long or too thick for your eyelashes can cause long-term damage, so you should make sure that your extensions aren't much longer or thicker than your natural lashes. All your eyelashes are at a different stage at any given time, which means that some of your eyelashes are about to fall out, while others are experiencing a growth period (this is true whether you have eyelash extensions or not). When booking your eyelash extension service, make sure your eyelash artist is a licensed esthetician (rather than a cosmetologist).

With so many salons and eyelash artists to choose from, knowing where to go and what to look for can be overwhelming. Typically, the eyelash artist will use various lengths and degrees of curvature to create a wide-open eye effect, with longer eyelashes in the outer corners of the eyes and shorter eyelashes in the inner corners. I was quick to hire one of the first eyelash artists to appear on Google in my neighborhood, and I did very little research before doing so. And try taking breaks where you let your natural lashes do their thing (and use a conditioning eyelash serum to get them back to health).

Some salons may name the style 3D volume or 5D volume, which means you'll get a range of 3 or 5 lashes per natural eyelash. While a knowledgeable eyelash artist is a better eyelash artist, a knowledgeable customer can improve the experience. Generally, voluminous lashes cost more, since the artist will have to spend more hours creating eyelash fans and applying them. If you want more volume, the eyelash technician can apply a few hair extensions to a single natural eyelash, commonly referred to as a fan eyelash or volume eyelash.

In addition, an educated and certified eyelash artist usually has to access better quality eyelash supplies because reputable providers require proof of license and certification. The initial application can take between 1.5 and 4 hours, depending on the style you want to achieve and the experience of your eyelash artist. Your eyelashes can get tangled when you sleep or shower, so brush gently with a clean brush when you wake up, after showering, and at the end of the day. If all of that sounds confusing, don't worry, a licensed eyelash specialist will help you make the best decision for your lashes, including the type of material you should buy, such as synthetic mink or synthetic silk.
