Meet Your Trainer - Eyelash Extensions and Lash Lift
MARIIA KOTOVA - LONDON LASH & InLei TRAINER FROM TORONTO, ON, CANADA
My name is Mariia Kotova and I am a Certified Eyelash Extension artist with over 6 years of experience. I was among the first members of National Association of Lash Artists in Canada.
What inspired me to become a lash artist was that I just wanted to do something in my life to be happy, make other women happy and help them feel better about themselves. For the same reason I started teaching, to help women achieve financial freedom, and do something to uplift their spirit. No one wants to be under consistent pressure at work, being yelled at by their boss or manager and then going home feeling down or scared that you will not receive your next pay check.
The advise I can give to a beginner artist - Do not compare yourself to others! Everyone has their own speed of learning and progress.
Always think about what you are doing and the way you can succeed. You are the only person who matters! And if you have questions or troubles, ask your trainer for help. There is nothing better for trainer than to see and help their students grow.
I love Russian Volume and especially 3D volume, it is nice, light and elegant, but creates a bit dramatic, and even mysterious look. I believe every woman needs to have a bit of mystery in her eyes.
My Favouvorite Lash Products: Volume tweezers, Flexie glue and Mayfair Mink Lashes. Do not really remember the time I was not using LLP products, but honestly don't even want to remember. LLP has everything i need - Lashes that fan like butter, the glue I can always rely on and tweezers that never strain my wrists.
