Coat the lashes with a moist brush. The most recent episode of MODERN SALON TV briefly discusses the art of eyelash extensions. Everyone agrees eyelash extensions can add instant beauty, but they have to be done right. Novalash Lash Artist of the year Christina Perez shares her favorite tip on finishing eyelash extensions. To finish off an eyelash application, set the adhesive with some moisture on the lash Finished eyelash extensions. and in the air. Typically she prefers to use Evian toning mineral water spray, but if that's not readily available, any regular water will work. In her live demonstration, Perez didn't have the Evian on hand, so she went ahead and used water in a spray bottle to mist an eyebrow-type brush with water and get it nice and wet. "The extra moisture on the lashes and in the air around the lashes is really going to help set the adhesive and dry it," Perez says. She coated them in water and let them dry with a small hand fan for about a minute. The finished lashes were amazing.

For a more extensive step-by-step from Perez on eyelash extensions, see MODERN's report in the November issue, p. 97.

Hi , i use very strong glue with little fume, but i would like to know if i spray a little water would this not (with the combination of the glue fumes) run into the clients eyes and burn slightly? Already i ask the clients to sit up straight before opening their eyes so that their tears dont run into their eyes and burn.

Depending upon the glue you use water should not be used to set lashes. Xtreme glue requires no water on new lashes for 24 hours. So please make sure before you use this tip you check with the manufacturer of the glue you are using to make sure you don't ruin youre perfect set!
