Additionally, premade volume lash fans are easier to apply than handmade fans. Though the bases are thin, they’re specially designed to be user-friendly, allowing you to easily pick them up!
Why Doesn’t Everyone Use Premade Volume Lashes?

Regardless, it's always important to try out new products and techniques in order to become the best lash artist you can be!
