@pinkladylash got this correct! And any knowledgeable Lash Artist knows these rules. No two Lash clients have the same natural base, and what’s good for the goose may not be good for the gander. It’s personalized service for each and every one of my clients, this is also why a consultation is important. If your artist isn’t communicating with you, find a new one. I will tell you anything you’d like to know about what’s going on YOUR lashline. Education is important so we are all on the same page as to what you want vs what is realistic. #Repost @pinkladylash
It's a good rule of thumb for a lash artist to not go more than 2-3mm past the natural lash length in order to maintain a healthy lash line for everyday wear. 4mm or longer past a natural lash can begin to look un realistic between fills and lead to twisting during grow out, so you'll be back in sooner for your fills.

Always trust a lash artist who is being honest with you on what your natural lashes can handle. Truth is, we ARE physically capable of picking up an placing an extension that is double the length of your natural lash. That doesn't mean it's right. And truth is, there are many artists who will do that anyway (some don't YET know any better). However, those follicles will start to get stressed out, and won't produce as healthy of lashes over time. The cycle will continue until you have frail, broken lashes making up your lash line. So, when your artist is trying to help, listen!

Artists, let's continue to learn and grow so that our clients can stay with us and wear lashes forever. We all start somewhere, but when you know better, you do better
