It can take some time to master the art of lashes. However, you can develop the skills you need with the right tools and practice while building a reputation for reliable customer care.
How Long it Takes to Perfect Your Craft
Expertly applying promade lashes for a customer can take up to three hours. However, developing your method and getting a feel for how lashes work and different eyelash supplies work together is highly recommended. You can work with a lashes practice kit before taking on new customers.
The actual answer to the question of how long it will take to perfect your craft varies from person to person. Most lash artists take three to six months to learn their craft and are continually working to improve and perfect their skills. At Mega Lash Academy, we support taking the time necessary to ensure that your lash artistry is where you want it!
Some of the Skills You Need

- High attention to detail
- A steady hand and keen eye
- High stamina and dexterity
Work with Professional Tools
There are specific tools you will need as a lash artist working with promade lashes. Fortunately, we have all the professional eyelash supplies you will ever need. These include:
- Silicone lash tape: a good alternative to under-eye pads for securing just about anything
- Lash adhesives: excellent for volume lashing, used to fix extensions onto natural lashes
- Lash extension mirrors: used to examine lashes from different angles to reduce error
Of course, there are many more tools in a lash artist's bag. However, these are the basics for starting out.
Focus on the Customer
Lash artistry is a customer-focused profession. Because of this, all your attention should be on the customer in front of you.
