When volume lashing it's all about that base!
When you're creating fans there are so many problems that cause you base issues -- it becomes crisscrossed, your fan closes or you get too much adhesive. We have your new best friend and it's only $4 for a 10 pack.
Create your fan with your preferred method. Dip your fan base in the adhesive (you can also use the center of the cup for your drop of adhesive!) -- then simply run the base through one of the slots on the side of the lash cup. It will help you to bring your base together and remove any excess adhesive.
