Making handmade lash fans can be a bit challenging at first, but with practice and patience, it can become a useful skill for any lash artist. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to make a handmade lash fan:
- Individual lash extensions
- Lash adhesive
- Lash tweezer
- Lash tile or palette
Step 1: Choose the right lashes Select individual lash extensions that are lightweight and have a fine base, as they are easier to work with and create a more natural-looking fan.
Step 2: Choose the number of lashes Decide how many lashes you want to use to make the fan. Start with three to four lashes and then gradually increase the number as you become more comfortable with the process.
Step 3: Create the fan Using your lash tweezer, pick up the desired number of lashes and hold them together at the base. Use your other hand to apply a small amount of adhesive to the base of the lashes.
Step 4: Use the adhesive sparingly Be careful not to use too much adhesive, as it can cause the lashes to stick together and create an uneven fan.
Step 5: Secure the fan Place the fan on a lash tile or palette to dry for a few seconds until the adhesive has set.
Step 6: Repeat the process Repeat the process with the desired number of lashes to create more fans.
Step 7: Apply the fans Once the fans are dry, they are ready to be applied to the natural lashes.
Note: Making handmade lash fans can take some practice and patience to master. Start with a small number of lashes and gradually increase the number as you become more comfortable with the process. Remember to use a light touch and a small amount of adhesive to create a natural-looking fan.
