Case Study Requirements

Case Study Requirements 2017-07-20T12:08:13+00:00

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: casestudies@eyelashexcellence.com

In all case studies please state the following:

  • Your name
  • Your course
  • The date you purchased your course
  • Your case study number (i.e. #1, #2, #3, #4)
  • Lash map used i.e. 7/8/9/10/11/10/9 etc. (this should match the photograph sent of your used eye pads.)
  • The thickness(s) and curl(s) used
  • The percentage of “suitable” natural lashes covered (minimum of 70% coverage required) 
  • For volume case studies ( excluding Mega volume ) you are able to submit hybrid classic and mixed sets. However you must include a minimum of 70% volume Fans in your set.
  • If doing volume or mega volume, please include what Dimension (D) fan(s) you’ve made i.e 3/4/5/6D etc

Please read the additional requirements below relevant to the course you are taking. Failure to provide the requested case study requirements will result in your case studies being rejected.

If you are still unclear of any of the case study requirements then please email casestudies@eyelashexcellence.com

BEGINNERS

  • Please do NOT use a thickness greater than 0.15mm for your case studies. Any case studies submitted where 0.18, 0.20 or 0.25 have been used will be rejected.
  • Please do NOT use flat lashes at this stage in your career, they are difficult for novice technicians to use. Please only work with classic lashes at this stage.
  • Frankie would like to see both 0.12 and 0.15 used, where suitable.
  • Do not use longer than 12mm where possible.
  • Ensure that the inner and outer corners of your sets, match the length of the client’s natural lashes in that area (never extend the length of these areas).
  • Work with B and C curls only at this stage, CC and D at your experience level are difficult to work with.

Please also include a detailed description of why you chose to lash your client with the thickness and curl used, as well as how you felt the set went and areas you feel that you would like to improve on.

SKILL BUILDING COURSE

Please showcase the techniques taught on your course, Frankie requires examples of the following:

  • Mixing curls
  • Capping or stacking
  • Mixing thickness
  • Feathering
  • Each case study MUST also include a lash style to suit that client (Dolly, Rounding, Kitten or Cat)

Please also include a detailed description of why you chose to lash your client with the thickness/curl/lash style relevant to that case study, as well as how you felt the set went and areas you feel that you would like to improve on.

Failure to provide examples of techniques taught on the course will result in your case studies being rejected.

EYE STYLING COURSE

Please showcase a different eye style for each case study, as well as using techniques in that set such as:

  • Mixing curls
  • Mixing thickness
  • Capping and stacking

This course is an in-depth “Eye Styling course”, therefore you are also required to include a detailed description of why you chose to lash your client with the thickness/curl/lash style relevant them. Please explain where correction was needed on that client (i.e. outer corner droop, peak in eyelid etc, round wide set eyes etc.), as well as how you felt the set went and areas you feel that you would like to improve on.

Case studies must show an technical application of the techniques taught during the course, otherwise they will not meet the criteria set for this Eye styling course.

RUSSIAN VOLUME

Please showcase the volume techniques taught on your course.

  • If you a complete beginner to Russian volume then please submit only 3D or 4D at this stage. 5/6/7/8D will be too advanced for you at this level of your volume career.
  • If you have taken this course as a volume refresher or additional training, then please let Frankie know of this in your case study and up to 8D will be accepted where safe.
  • Please use curls and thickness to suit the client. For beginners to volume Frankie recommends that you start with 0.07mm only, however if your client cannot support this thickness then you MUST use a thinner volume lash suitable for that client.
  • Please provide details of the eye style used on your client including lash thickness, length, curl and fan Dimension (D) made, as this must be technically correct too. Russian Volume is an advanced technique of lashing therefore students taking this course are expected to have a comprehensive understanding of eye styling and produce case studies that evidence this. If you feel that you do not understand this subject then please visit Frankie’s online Eye styling course where this is covered in depth.

  • The minimum level of volume for MEGA volume is 9D, the maximum is 16D
  • Only use clients that are suitable for the MEGA volume technique.
