Lash primers have been around for quite some time already. 

As the eyelash extension industry evolves and new products are being developed and introduced, lash primers came out of the box. 

Lash Primer is a solution to an existing problem that has caused retention issues for some, if not all, of the lash artists. What problem might it be, you ask? Too much dirt and oil in one’s lashes and eyelids.

Lash cleansers/shampoos can help eliminate this problem of dirt and oil, but sometimes, there are lashes that need an even deeper cleansing and more delicate cleaning. Those lashes that are with too much make-up residue and/or oil, and cases alike, would need more than a friendly touch of lash cleansers/shampoos. This then introduced the development of lash primers into the picture. 

Lash Primers help with that deep cleansing and delicate cleaning to get those lashes properly treated and prepared for the eyelash extension glues to stick. 

So, if you’re having retention problems because of too much dirt residue and oil in one’s lashes and eyelids, and you’re not yet using any lash primer, keep reading and get convinced, you need a lash primer to partner with your lash cleanser/shampoo!

First of all, What is a lash primer? 

Just like how paint primer functions as a preparatory coating for painting and makes paint stick on the surface better, the lash primer does the same thing, it makes eyelash extension glues stick better for longer retention. 

Lash primer is a preparatory tool for your eyelash extensions, it is applied during pre-treatment, meaning before the application of eyelash extensions.
