A Step-By-Step Guide For Lash Mapping Doll Lashes
Lash mapping is essential for a great set of lashes - not only does it ensure symmetry across both eyes, but it also helps your eyelash extension sets to look more professional, protects the finer natural lashes of the inner corners, and provides a truly customised lash extension set for each client based on their face shape and bone structure!
Let’s have a look at how to map Doll lashes, including who Doll lashes are perfect for, and even how we can achieve three different top lines in our set!
To begin with, the most simple way to remember how to map Doll lashes is to keep in mind that this style of lashes is all about symmetry - anything we do towards the outer corner of the natural lashes, we’re also going to mirror in the inner corners.
How to Map a Dolly Eyes Lash Set
Start by marking the inner and outer corners - that is the first and last lash - and then the middle of the eye.
The simplest way to find the middle of the eye is to have your client look first one way (with their eyes closed, you’ll be able to see where their iris rests under the eyelid) and then the other, where their eye comes to rest in the middle is where you’ll go from as your centre.
Draw a line out from the middle of the eye, and then mark the edges of the iris - this will be the section where your longest length is going.
Next, connect those marks so that you can easily see the section you’ll be working outwards from
Now, work outwards from the middle section in even sized segments, mirroring everything you draw on either side of the middle section.
Who Will Doll Lashes Suit Best?
Doll lashes give the appearance that the eyes are closer together, so will best suit those clients who have a wider set of eyes. When we refer to a ‘wide’ set of eyes, we’re looking at whether the distance between the eyes is wider than the eyes themselves. If a client has a wider set of eyes, Doll lashes will create the illusion that there is less of a gap, so are very complimentary!
A Doll lashes will also make the eye look bigger and rounder, making it perfect for clients with very small or narrow eyes. On the other hand, avoid this styling for clients who already have large, bulbous or round eyes as it can make them look constantly surprised, which isn’t our aim!
