A case study is photographic evidence of your work, to show your level of understanding from the online course you have taken.

There is no time limit for you to complete your case studies.

Each student is required to submit 4 case studies for assessment. This will equate to approximately 8 hours of practical lashing (x4 sets of 2 hours each).

If you are studying the MEGA volume online course, then only 2 case studies are required (x2 sets of approx. 4 hours each). MEGA volume case studies must be a minimum of 8D, using 0.05mm thickness or finer. This client must be suitable to support MEGA volume and has strong natural lashes.

Each case study must be performed on a different client, so that you show the ability to work on a variety of eyelash types.

Photographs must be clear, taken close-up and in focus. Please do not use any filters, skin smoothing Apps etc. on your photos; I am looking for the quality of your lash work only.

Please take a variety of photographs, as the more the better. Photographs are to be taken from the following angles and MUST show clear before (without extensions) and after results.

You can have or leave the under eye pads on the client whilst taking photos, this is acceptable and can assist to show the lashes more clearly.

There should be a minimum of 7 photographs submitted for assessment. Please ensure that you understand what is required from you, using the visual examples below to assist you.

Photographs must be clear, close-up, in focus and show the following angles as demonstrated below (click to enlarge):

Failure to provide any of the above may result in your case studies being rejected.

Please send your case studies one by one, as you complete each client. I will, and within 24 hours give you brief feedback on your submission and if need be, highlight any areas of concern prior to completion of your next case study.

Please do NOT send all 4 case studies at once. If all 4 case studies were to contain the same area of concern, then I would have to request submission of another 4 case studies.

Please send your case studies to the following email address: info@eyelashexcellence.com

Please state the following:

  • Your name
  • Your course
  • The date you purchased your course
  • Your case study number
  • Curl(s) used
  • Thickness used
  • Lash styling (if taking the skill building course I would like to see examples of the techniques taught such as eye styling, capping/stacking, feathering, mixing curls, mixing thickness, coloured lashes etc.)
  • Level of volume (if submitting volume case studies – ie 3/4/5D etc – for volume case studies 3D is the minimum level of volume I will accept and 2D sets will be rejected.)
  • Lash map used i.e. 7/8/9/10/11/10/9 etc. (this should match the photograph sent of your used eye pads.)

Case studies do NOT require you to cover 100% of the natural lashes; anywhere from 70% -100% is sufficient, as I understand that creating a set of eyelash extensions takes time. I am looking for the quality of your work and not the quantity.

For those of you taking the online Volume course, I am more than happy to receive Classic/Volume mixed sets, as long as I can see the Volume work and the percentage of Volume is more than Classic – i.e. a 70% Volume to 30% Classic mix. If you choose to do this then please state this in your case study.

Case studies will be assessed as you go, and feedback given on submission of each. On submission of your final case study, all 4 will be assessed against our criteria, and on successful completion of the course case studies, full feedback given and your certificate will be emailed out.

Unlimited on-going support will always be available to you from myself, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any help in the future.
