Starting your journey to become a lash artist can be daunting, with so many options on the market, it’s easy to become overwhelmed! Besides the obvious essentials such as lashes, tweezers and adhesive, we have put together our top 10 must-have products to make starting up seem a little less overwhelming!
Adhesive shaker: An absolute must have for any lash artist, the adhesive shaker will ensure your adhesive is shaken correctly, saving time throughout your set when your adhesive needs re-shaking. When you experience issues with retention, one of the biggest causes is unproperly shaken adhesive, so this will reduce this problem from occurring! A shaker will take pressure away from your hands and wrists.
Air tight container: It’s vital that your adhesive is being stored correctly so that you can achieve consistent results without experiencing issues with retention.
