Lashing better: doing the corners
What differs a good work from the perfect one? Of course, working-through of the corners. In this article we’re going to talk you through some key aspects of lashing in the corners of the eyes to make your work perfect.
- Fullness: a perfect set would have all natural lashes, even the tiniest and finest ones an extension attached to it.
- Length: shorter extensions, 3-5 mm, should do the trick. They will make the inner corner look as natural as possible. And they will never bother the client, so you won’t hear her asking "not to lash the inner corner". Additionally, it will help you to keep your direction: when extensions at the inner corners are too long, they will always tend to go astray.
Other typical errors for internal corners may include:
- Curl: please note that extensions under 7 mm should be strictly in J curl, otherwise they will bother the client and give a "shaggy" look.
- Volume: even if you do a Hollywood set, you should always give less volume towards the inner corner, otherwise your client will fill them and the transition will be to sharp.
- Attachment point: it can be more far off the roots than usual because it is difficult to get there. As a result, even short extensions may look too long, if extra 2-3 mm are added.
These are even more noticeable than the internal corners. Here, there is only key aspect to keep an eye on is length (extensions mustn’t be too long). Using the same length as for the rest of the eye on outermost lashes will look inappropriate, break the impression of complete job, spoil the direction and make extensions look drooping. Be it a Classic set or a Volume set last lashes (5 to 15 depending on the clients lid and lashes) are made 1:1 with the length of extensions equal to that of the natural lashes. To avoid indents, one should give the right direction angle (at least 45°).
