Iโ€™m sure it happened to you as well, I think at one point it happened to all of us, itโ€™s nothing to be ashamed of. ๐™‡๐™š๐™–๐™ง๐™ฃ ๐™›๐™ง๐™ค๐™ข ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™ข๐™ž๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ ๐™š๐™จ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™˜๐™ค๐™ง๐™ง๐™š๐™˜๐™ฉ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š๐™ข!

I know there are a lot of new things to look out for when you just starting out as a new lash artist ( these things will come naturally after a little while trust me ) One of the most important thing when it comes to lashes is ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜๐—ต๐˜†๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป! The eye is an extremely delicate area and we are holding two super sharp tweezers while trying to attach tiny little extension to the natural lashes.. the last thing we wanna do is to cause any damage to the eye ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

An irritation or chemical burn can mirror many of the same symptoms of an allergy. Irritations usually stem from the fumes given off by the adhesive as it solidifies or dries. Individual gas molecules of cyanoacrylate leave the adhesive and can cause red puffy eyes and make the sclera (the white part of your eye) red and itchy. The difference is that irritations usually donโ€™t last longer than 24 hours and should get significantly better as time passes.

Here are some quick tips ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ When you tape your client's lower lashes, make sure not to put the tape too high as this will cause irritation! The same applies to under eye patches, don't place them so high that they stop the eyelid from closing.

- Relax your client. Explain the procedure fully and the importance of keeping their eyes closed. Ask them not to have caffeinated drinks; Coffee, Tea, or energy drinks before treatment. These make them fidget and cause rapid eye movement that disturbs the seal. If you offer your client a drink before treatment; make it herbal tea or water.

- If the client can't close their eyes properly place a tape horizontally onto their eyelid to weight it down.
