Lash Tip Tuesday: Using Your Fingers to Isolate Lashes

There is a somewhat uncommon technique that I teach all of my students:  using your fingers to isolate lashes, along with your tweezers.   I have found that this comes really natural to some lash artists.   For others, not so much, they prefer to use tweezers only.  That is okay.  It is important to use the techniques that work best for you as a lash artist.  I love teaching the finger technique to use as an extra tool in your tool box.  

How to use your fingers:
The first thing you want to do is part the lashes using a piece of tape or a gel pad as shown above.  Use your ring finger to hold one side of the lashes over and use your middle finger to hold the other side of the lashes over.  As you can see, several lashes pop out.  If you are advanced in your technique, you can attach an extension to all four of those lashes at once, which will save you a lot of time.  Hold the lashes apart for a few seconds to give your adhesive time to dry, then move to the other side.  Please note, if you use your fingers to isolate, make sure to wear gloves because you are touching the eyelids.  

We hope this tip helps you speed up your lash sets!  Let us know what you think in the comments!
