Foam tape / Microfoam tape



What kind of tape do you use for eyelash extensions? How do you keep bottom lashes down?

Foam tape is the most COST EFFECTIVE eyepatch solution loved by thousands of lash technicians all around the world. It's cheaper than even the CHEAPEST eye pads for eyelash extensions! 5 meters of Microfoam Tape will allow you to create:

  • 80 lash sets (£0.08/$0.10/€0.10 per set!) from the 2.5cm wide tape roll
  • 160 lash sets (£0.08/$0.10/€0.10 per set!) from the 5cm wide tape roll

Why use foam tape for eyelash extensions?

You can use the foam tape for ANY client, however, it’s an absolute “must-have” for those clients who:

  • are allergic to the gel of eyepatches
  • have oily skin (foam tap has excellent “staying in one place” ability)
  • have bulbous eyes OR struggle to keep their eyes tightly closed during treatment - the thicker foam helps to keep the fumes away from the eyes
  • like to talk during the treatment and, as a result, their eyes are constantly shaking. 
  • have sensitive watery eyes

How to use

2.5 cm wide tape roll:

  • Disinfect your scissors
  • Cut off the amount of tape needed to cover bottom lashes (around 1.3 inches / 3 cm per eye)
  • If needed, cut a curve on the foam tape to suit your client’s eye shape
  • Attach first to the back of your hand and peel away to remove some of the stickiness (after washing and sanitising your hands, of course!) 
  • Tape down the bottom lashes and draw on your lash map!

5 cm wide tape roll:

  • Disinfect your scissors
  • Cut a curve on the foam tape to suit your client’s eye shape
  • Stick to the back of your clean hand to remove some stickiness from the foam tape
  • Tape down client’s bottom lashes 
  • Draw on your lash map and away you go!

Good tape, does the trick. I prefer hydrogel patches still, but these help when client is allergic to hydrogel

Harriet Cosway
Great Product

I love this tape - would definitely order again.

Comfortable and easy to use

I tried different foam tapes before, some were more sticky or were too thick, but I actually find London Lash Pro one the most comfortable and easy to use. The foam is nice and soft and it is easy to cut it in shape that I need. I definitely saved more money than buying different eyepatches.

Great but keeps lifting

I really want to love this tape, it’s great to work with but I struggle with some clients sometimes the tape doesn’t stick and lifts after an hour, I clean and dry around the eye area so not sure what I’m doing wrong

Hi Charli,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review, we're really sorry to hear that you're having some trouble with the tape. There are a few reasons that the tape may be lifting - the client has oilier skin, there is some makeup residue left on the skin, if their eyes are watering during treatment, for example. The shape of the clients' eyes can also play a part, but the great thing about foam tape is that you can cut it to customise it for each specific client.

If the client's skin is oily or has a fair amount of makeup around the eye area, we'd recommend making sure the client's skin is completely cleansed prior to sticking down the tape - Protein Remover pads may be more ideal in this cases than foam cleanser as you can really give the skin a thorough cleanse! ‍♀️

If the client's eyes water during treatment, ensure no pretreatment products enter the eyes, and that no tape is too close to the waterline and aggravating the eyes.

If the client's eye shape could be the problem, try cutting the tape to that shape to ensure it stays where you put it whilst still protecting the baby lashes

Lots of love,



I bought the bigger microfoam tape to try and OMG, instantly fall in love with it! So easy to cut, can be perfectly customised to each clients eyeshade. Once placed on it doesn't move at all! And I noticed with my beginner student that they tend to push the eyepatches when they are isolating the NL and this foam tape is so much more safer to use because its thicker and it doesn't move!
Definitely getting rid of all my old school eye patches and ordering more of this foam tape when I run out of it :)
