If you’re new to the eyelash extensions industry, or just new to London Lash, you may have some questions about the best products for classic eyelash extensions. Have no fear! We too, were new to lashes once upon a time, so we’ve put together our list of favourite products for classic lash extensions!
This is a little bit trickier a subject than the rest as there’s no single answer to the question ‘what’s the best eyelash extensions glue for beginners’ but generally speaking, when you’re first starting out, you’ll need something a little bit more gradually drying to give you a chance to place an extension, and correct it if it begins to lean.
Opt for Satin Bond, which has a 2 second drying time and a slightly thicker consistency, which will help you to pick up the right amount of glue too.
If you’re after something a little bit faster, go for Lady Bond, which has a runnier consistency and a 1-2 second drying time.
We have sample-sized bottles if you’d like to try both out to see which suits you best!
Of course, this will always depend what kind of look you’re going for, but this is a list of our favourite classic lash kit staples, afterall!
0.12 C and CC Mayfair in mixed lengths
0.15 C and CC Chelsea in mixed lengths
These will give you some gorgeous mascara effect classic lashes that are enough to turn heads without being too heavy or intrusive. By all means, expand your collectionhowever you see fit, and try out different curls and finishes to see which you love the most!
Our favourite BY FAR is the 5 step method - it’s tried and tested, and works like a dream where your retention is concerned. To make it easier than ever for you, we’ve even put it into a bundle.
If you’re on a tighter budget, no problem - check out this blog post which explains 3 different pretreatment routines, which vary from one step to five steps.
Much like glue, there's not really a one-size-fits-all answer to this as it comes down to personal preference, but my personal favourite tweezers for classic lashes are curved isolation tweezers for isolation, and multifunctional tweezers for picking up the extensions - I love the angles of each and I find that said angles just means that my wrists are more comfortable during the treatment. With that said, there are loads of different shapes available, so see which are best for you!
These are the things that you don't necessarily need, but which will make a difference to your treatment overall.
- Glue shakers will save you time during your treatment and will shake your glue to perfection, meaning that you won't have issues with retention due to your glue not being properly mixed.
- Glue stones & stickers will make clean up much easier after treatments, and are better for you and your client than a glue ring
- Eyepatches are more comfortable for your clients than tape alone, and provide the perfect surface for you to draw your lash maps.
If you’re still a little unsure, we do have kits for classic lashes that you might be interested in while you get a better idea of what you love the most!
