My second tip is to get people to those social media by creating giveaways this could be in so many different forms. You can collab with somebody to do a giveaway. Together you're gonna have rules and your rules are gonna be anything along the lines of comment share follow anything like that. Once you start getting engagement on your page Instagram will push your page so you definitely need to make sure that there's engagement.

Get yourself fully practicing, no TV, no music, no nothing just literally dive in lash after lash. You will get better and faster with time — and only time. As you get up to speed, you may get disheartened and second-guess your decision to become a lash artist. Trust us — no one is born a great last artist. Even the best ones had to practice a lot. Do not give up. Keep practicing and practicing.

How are we going to be the best lash artist or lash tech if we have not-so-great eyelash extension supplies? We can’t! I wanted to simplify it for our beginners out there and give you a list of the main items you NEED in your life right at the beginning of your journey.
- Ring light

When starting out, either start with 3-4 trays of single lengths or start experimenting with mixed trays. Once you get to the point where your buying too many mixed trays, it’s time to start grabbing those single lengths.

It is impossible to say which adhesive is the best because that is highly subject to the treatment environment, proficiency of the technicians, and preference of individuals.
