You all know this step and it doesn’t need a lotta explaining. Before adding any lash extension, the rule of thumb is to prepare the canvas; and in this case, the natural lashes. So go ahead and smoothly apply the mascara as you want the lashes to be.
Experts tell you to stick to this because it retains the falsies better in such a way that you feel it easy to apply and users feel nothing extra is on their eyelashes.
There are two steps to apply these lashes.
Step 1: Apply the lash extension on the top lashes of both eyes
Step 2: Apply the extension strip on the bottom lashes of both eyes
That’s it! The strips will connect automatically.
What when you’ve done it wrong? Magnetic eyelash extensions are easy to remove. So, don’t worry. Just tug from the corner of the eye in question and reposition it as you please. Another way is to pull the bottom lashes down and pull the top lashes up. You can also roll both the bottom and top falsies with your thumb to slide them off too.
After you’ve practiced, you can offer application and touch-up services for clients who are already using it. A professional touch can enhance any look and most people who use falsies would love to have magnetic lash options on the menu these days. So, give them nominally-priced options or styles for specifically magnetic lashes.
With the pandemic in motion, you can even offer private consultations via video call or tutorial sessions for preparation, application, and removal of magnetic lashes for your special clients who use them. This can open a whole new market online if you’ve been exclusively offline up till now.
