Get ready to experience a remarkable improvement in your lashing speed and retention with the perfect primer, like Fixe Beauty’s Engagement Primer. Let’s go!

Tip 1: The Science of pH Balance and Lash Primers

The natural pH of the lash surface typically sits around 4.5-5.5. However, optimal adhesion of the cyanoacrylate-based lash adhesive requires a slightly alkaline environment with a pH of around 7. A lash primer, like Fixe Beauty’s Engagement Primer, plays a crucial role in adjusting the pH of the natural lashes, ensuring that the adhesive works at its maximum efficiency. This not only leads to improved retention but also contributes to faster application times.

Tip 2: Consistency is Key: How Using a Single Brand Can Elevate Your Lashing Game

When it comes to lashing, using products from the same brand can make a world of difference. Each product within a brand is designed to work synergistically, creating a perfect harmony that helps you achieve the best results for your clients. By choosing a consistent brand like Fixe Beauty, you establish trust in your services and expertise as a lash artist.

Tip 3: Know When to Use (and When NOT to Use) Lash Primer

It’s essential to know when to use a lash primer and when not to. Lash primer is perfect for clients with oily skin, as their natural lashes are more likely to have a buildup of oils that can interfere with the adhesive’s bonding ability. Using a primer in such cases helps remove excess oil and ensures a better bond between the natural lash and the extension.

However, it’s not recommended for clients with sensitive eyes, as the primer’s ingredients may cause irritation or discomfort. Additionally, avoid using primer on clients with thin, brittle lashes, as primers are alcohol based and can use drying and breakage if overused or used on lashes that are already fragile. By understanding the unique needs of each client, you’ll ensure stunning results that keep them coming back for more!

Tip 4: The Power of Fixe Beauty’s Engagement Primer: A Game-Changer for Speed and Retention

Fixe Beauty’s Engagement Primer is a must-have for lash artists looking to boost their speed and retention. By creating the ideal environment for the adhesive to work at its maximum level, the Engagement Primer ensures extensions adhere instantly upon placement. This means less time waiting for the adhesive to dry and less time spent separating stuck-together lashes. Say hello to a more efficient lashing experience!
