A comprehensive breakdown of My Lamination and Katya Vinog shields, comparing the two industry leading brands and allowing you to chose the perfect shield for every eye shape. Every time.
Shape: Before choosing what brand to use, we must determine the appropriate shield shape for the clients eye shape.
L Curl = L curl shields are developed to provide a wide-eye effect to the clients with hooded eyelids, deep-set eyes and asian ethnicity. L curls are essentially C or D curls with a flat base. Because of the flat base, you will be able to give your client the ultimate eyelid lift.
Recommended shield: Katya Vinog Clover
C Curl = C curl is one of the most popular curls worldwide and will be suited to most clients. If C curl is used for clients with slightly downward angled lashes, it will give a satisfying lash lift. If used for clients with close-to-horizontal angle lashes, it will provide a fabulous doll eye effect. However, for clients with heavily downward-angled lashes, we recommend using D curl instead.
Recommended shield: My Lamination Blue
D Curl = D curl is very similar to C curl, just curlier. They are especially effective for clients with downward-angled lashes who want a show-stopping look. These lashes will brighten and widen the eye and give a noticeable curled effect. Be mindful when using D Curl on long lashes as there is the potential to over curl.
Recommended shield: My Lamination Pink
Sizing: Utilising the correct shield and measuring the lash properly will determine the results of your lash lift drastically. When measuring the lash, use your lifting tool and hold the lash up to the shield, ensure the top of the lash reaches above the apex (the middle point of the shields curve). See example below.
Now we can break down the difference in brands and the make up of the individual shields.
