Magnifying glasses for Eyelash Extensions - 26-05-11, 02:51 PM

Hi Geeks

Do any of you use the magnifying glasses with the light from LashBase.

I really struggle sometimes with lighting and finding lashes when lighting isn't great and wondered if anyone could recommend these or anything else similar.

Thanks

Jackie

I saw this one a few days ago and I'm not sure, if it would be good for you to use? :-)

Thanks, that looks great. Will be interesting to see if anyone that does eyelash extensions uses anything like this.

thanks

I just use my mag lamp for lashes as i am not mobile. However, i do use the head lamp when I'm doing permanent make up, and its great. Messes your hair up a bit tho!

I use the deluxe magnifier from beauty express as my trainer had one & it was so much easier on my eyes than using a mag lamp. You can move around & don't have to keep adjusting the maglamp. I think it looks very professional too. Plus the bright lights aren't shining in to the clients face!

I bought one from ebay for about a tenner and it really works. I'm still in the practising stages of eyelash extensions and only used them whilst doing friends/family. They crack up laughing at me when they see me wearing it but i hope that clients won't. And yes it does mess your hair up

Hi Jurate... I bought that headlamp from Salon Services and found that the LED light was not strong enough. the magnification lenses were top class though! So for a while, I used the head-contraption with just the lenses and put a separate headlamp that I bought from Argos on (it has 7 LED lights and swivels. I will try and post the link to it. It's half price at the moment)
Then I thought to myself. What the hell are you doing??? Just buy magnification GLASSES and use the Argos headlamp. I used to work in an opticians and would recommend that you see an optician so that he/she can prescribe the correct magnification for your own sight, working at the distance that you do. For me, the optician recommended +1.50s. (I NEVER lash without them - I can see all the baby hairs!) When I earn a bit more money, I will invest in the mag lamp and then I'll have a choice.

I use Nouveau's extending magnifying glasses. They are a bit pricey but I love them and I never lash without them. I bought some cheaper ones to start with and they kept slipping off my nose. I don't like the ones that go round your head as I don't want to mess my hair up.
I use a lamp that I bought from Ikea and it's fab1
Here's the links;
