Making your eyes pop with eyelash extensions is a great way to show off your beautiful eyes. But first, you need to understand the basics of eyelash primers and adhesives.
Whether you’re a beautician, lash artist, or stylist, understanding how eyelash primers and adhesives work can help you create an even more dramatic and longer-lasting look for your clients.
In this blog post, we will provide a comprehensive guide on everything related to eyelash primers and adhesives. So, without further ado, let’s dive in!
What Is Eyelash Primer?
Eyelash primer is a crucial step in the lash application process. It helps condition and protect your natural lashes while promoting healthy hair growth and strengthening the lashes by nourishing them with vitamins and minerals.
Eyelash primer is designed to help prep the natural lashes for extensions by cleaning them of oils and debris, as well as moisturising them for a better bond between the lash extension adhesive and the natural eyelashes.
It is also used to help keep extensions from slipping off or becoming too heavy for the natural lash. It should be applied prior to application of any lash extensions, as it helps them adhere better and last longer.
Eyelash primer can also be used before applying mascara to help condition your lashes for a longer lasting effect and helps ensure that your mascara doesn’t flake or smudge throughout the day.
How to Apply Lash Primer
Applying eyelash primer is simple!
Before applying any extensions, you should always prime the natural lashes with a brush-on primer such as our Lash London Premium Lash Primer.
Gently apply it along the base of each natural lash from root to tip, ensuring that all lashes are evenly coated with primer before proceeding with the application process. Allow it several seconds to dry before applying any lash extensions or adhesives.
What is Lash Adhesive?
This specialty eyelash medical-grade adhesive is used to bond eyelash extensions to natural eyelashes. It's designed to be extra long-lasting and give eyelashes a glamorous look that lasts for weeks.
These specialised lash adhesives are specially formulated with thick viscosity that dries out clear – this lets the extensions stay put while still looking natural.
How Do I Choose the Right Primer & Adhesive?
When choosing which type of primer and adhesive will work best, always go with the recommended products. Some products are not allowed to be used together and some products can be perfectly used together.
As a lash technician it’s your job to choose the right products for yourself. We all have different preferences, skills and room conditions. Ask your supplier the best product that would work for you.
Buy 1 type at a time. Don’t use too many different adhesives at a time. You won’t know which one is which will work for you if you mix things around.
Additionally, always make sure that whatever products or brands you use have been verified safe by an independent laboratory or have been approved by health professionals before using them on yourself or others.
Our Posh Deluxe range of products have all been put through a rigorous inspection process to ensure that they are the highest possible quality and are perfectly safe and healthy.
