How To Make A Handmade Fan
TOP 3 WAYS TO HANDMAKE EYELASH EXTENSIONS
For many people, learning to fan can be one of the hardest techniques to master, it's easy to want to give up and throw in the towel but once you understand how to and find your way, its a breeze!
Along the way we can face many challenges- fans closing up, glue sticking to the tweezers fans falling apart and the time it takes to handmade fans. But we can help you in this article.
1. Pinch Method.
A classic way to fan lashes, using your thumb and middle/index fingers whilst losing pressure from your tweezers to create a perfect fan.
Remember: not all fans will be symmetrical, as long as the base is thin you're good to go! Unlike a classic set, there is room for error- we're not saying there should be but we can't always fan perfectly.
We suggest 0.03 for mega volume, 0.05 for volume and 0.07 for hybrid sets and Mega J/90 degree tweezers for beginners.
2. Fanning on the strip
Another great way to fan lashes. Some people struggle with this technique and this can be due to too much pressure being applied to the lashes, poor tweezer grip and lack of knowledge.
It comes easily when you get to grips of it, a great way to fan if you isolate before fanning too as you only need one hand to make these fans.
It’s also more hygienic as no fingers are involved touching the lashes. If you find you need to pinch them once you have picked them up thats absolutely fine: whatever works for you.
Used here are our 45 Degree Boot tweezers and 0.05 Rose Volume.
3. Shimmy Method
One of the quickest ways to fan. Most people struggle with this method but with a pair of great tweezers paired with soft lashes, they will fan effortlessly.
Our co-founder Ariel Renee has got this method down to a tee and fans effortlessly every time.
You can use any tweezers for this method too, if you have tried in the past and can't seem to do it, maybe try a new pair of tweezers and try brushing your lashes before you fan.
Used here are our 90 Degree Tweezers and 0.03 Rose Volume.
