Now everything is in place and you've prepped the lashes you can begin lashing. Using a marker you can draw an outline on the lash pad as a guide to you know where you will be placing each lash. When I do my classic sets I like to do a bit of feathering so I start with the longest lash I will use and begin structuring. So for example, if my longest lash was an 11 I would attach about 10 or so of those to one eye (I have chosen the Dolly effect to demonstrate), then swap over to the other eye and do the same. Then back to the original eye and put in my structure of 10s , 9s and 8s overlapping them so there is a natural graduation rather than a quick jump in lengths.

When this is complete you will have a good base to start filling in.
Carry on in the same manner, adding in your lashes and going from eye to eye. If you are fairly new and have chosen a slower setting glue it is a good idea to swap from one eye to the other more often to give the adhesive more time to cure and prevent stickies.
When you have completed your set use your spoolie to brush through and make sure all lashes are bonded properly and remove the tape and eyepads. You may want to use your fan or nanomister at this point to clear away any fumes.
Give your client a few minutes to get up. I find that most of my clients fall asleep while I'm lashing so I often get a few blank stares while I explain the aftercare to them while they are waking up! I have it all written on cards in their aftercare pack as well just to remind them later. You can download the aftercare leaflets on the downloads page.
