Practice, Practice, Practice!
Practicing your lash making on a daily basis is one of the most important things you can do for your lash career. But before we even get into that, it's vital to note that starting with classic lashes, and building a firm foundation there is needed to become the lash artist you were meant to be. There is no shortcut to mastering the fundamentals, and practice is something we can all use a little more of. That being said, there are several reasons why this is a key component to focus on in your career. To start out, I like to put it like this: Practicing before taking clients for the day is like your warm-up. You wouldn’t crawl out of bed and run a marathon before warming up for it. An extra 20 - 30 minutes in the morning making lash fans and practicing placement will set you up for a consistent and successful day. Sometimes we are a little off in the beginning of the day and need to adjust our grip, our pickup, or our placement to create (and keep) beautiful fans. You don’t want to have to go through this trial and error during your first client. Get it out of the way in advance, and be more prepared for your lashing day than you ever thought possible!
