There are loads of different brands of lighting available for applying eyelash extensions. Most of them are just variations of LED lighting. The most well known one is the Glamour light, it’s a massive investment though at over £300! It’s got a great reputation and people speak very highly of it. If money was no object I would definitely get one! I have listed a few different options on this blog for suit everyone’s budget.

Personally I use a ring light with a magnifier in the middle very similar to the one I have linked to below. I use my reading glasses and look through this 5 x magnifier, so I am able to isolate the natural lash completely without any worry of missing any faint baby lashes hiding behind the natural lash before applying an eyelash extension.

If you struggle to apply eyelash extensions through a magnifier you can purchase an LED video light, which is what the Glamour light is. Personally I would recommend persevering with a magnifier, but if you really can’t get on with one then LED video lights are great! Mains powered ones are the best. LED video lights have a dial on them for increasing and decreasing the brightness. It’s best to go with daylight balanced ones, so there is less strain on your eye sight.

You can get magnifier glasses which clip onto the front of your normal glasses or just magnifier glasses if you don’t wear prescription glasses yet. These can be used along side an LED video light.

Dental surgeons and medical trained people tend to use loupes. If you get loupes from medical companies they are normally around £500 and made for your eyesight. Their loupes have an LED light attached to the middle of the glasses and a battery pack, which clips onto your trouser belt.
