Lashing the inner and outer corners may be a bit of a struggle, but with a few really cool quick tricks from our experts you will be able to handle any challenging areas without the hassle!
If working with inner corners stresses you out, make sure this is the area you start working on first. There are a few reasons for this - one, your eyes are less tired so it will be easier for you to focus on these tiny lashes. Two, you won’t be stressing that you are running out of time, and believe me - there is nothing worse than working on the inner corners under time pressure.
Use the tape whenever you can – gently lift and pull inner and outer corners and don’t worry, the client won’t even notice!
When working with inner corners, cut a piece of tape place it closes and parallels to the lash line, pulling gently towards the brow arch. This technique helps you to reveal all hidden lashes and significantly improves your visibility when it comes to isolation.

In the outer corners, place the piece of tape perpendicular to the lash line and gently pull it upwards. This will lift the lashes that usually grow very straight or even downwards in that area. Always remember to check with a dental mirrorthat you didn’t accidentally open the client’s eye as it may cause chemical burn or irritation.
