There are a few main parts of a lash kit. The first is the applicators that you use to apply the glue to your lashes. They come in different lengths and thicknesses so that you can find one that suits your needs. Some people prefer longer applicators for reaching the inner corners of their eyes, while others prefer shorter ones for applying glue closer to their eyelids.
There are also lash extension glues used for applying false lashes, while removers dissolve adhesive so that you can remove them when you're done wearing them (or if they fall off). You'll need both types if you want to be able to wear false eyelashes on a regular basis!
You can also buy scissors designed specifically for cutting false eyelashes.
Whether you're a beginner or an expert, lash extension kits are essential for anyone who wants to achieve the most dramatic eye look.
The lash applicator is a tool that's used to apply the lashes. It helps you apply the lashes and extensions, which is why it's important to have one on hand if you're thinking about getting some new ones.
Lash glue is a liquid, gel, or cream that allows you to apply false eyelashes. It can be used on both false lashes and real lashes.
Many lash glue products contain latex, which is why some people who are allergic to latex may have an allergic reaction when they use them. If you are allergic to latex, check the ingredient list of your lash glue before using it.
Some lash glues come in tubes like toothpaste or mascara; others come in pots that resemble lip gloss tubes. The best kind of lash adhesive is one that comes in a pot because it lasts longer than tube-style glues and dries faster than brush-on adhesives (which require more time).
You will also need a lash remover. This is a product that removes the glue from your eyelashes, so you can take off the false lashes and reuse them. Lash remover can be bought in a brush form or as a liquid. To use it, dip the tip of your lash wand into the remover and gently sweep it across all of your lashes from root to tip. Any excess glue from this process should come off with warm water when you next bathe or shower (or use an oil cleanser for waterproof makeup).
There are two main types of lash removers: one that contains acetone, which dissolves both water-soluble and oil-soluble glues; and one that contains specific ingredients for dissolving only water-soluble glues (which are usually used for applying fake eyelashes). Make sure you get the right kind!
Lash scissors are used for cutting lash strips. They should be sharp, small enough to fit in the bag, and able to cut through dry glue without causing damage to the strip or your fingers.
Lash pads are the soft, disposable pads that you place on your eye before applying lashes. They help to keep the lashes in place and prevent them from accidentally scratching your eyeball. Lash pads should be thrown away after each use; if you reuse them, there is a chance that bacteria could develop on them and spread to your eyes or eyelids.
The best way to apply lash extensions with a kit is by using a new pad for each application, even if it does not seem dirty or worn out. This will reduce the risk of spreading bacteria between different clients' eyes as well as reducing irritation on existing clients' eyelids from reused applicator pads (which may have been contaminated).
The lash bag is a container that holds all the other pieces of your kit. It can be made of plastic, metal or leather, but it should be easy to clean and disinfect. The lash bag should also be sturdy enough to hold all your pieces together in one place so they don’t get lost.
