F A Q
WHAT ARE INDIVIDUAL EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
Eyelash extensions are individual strands of synthetic/silk fibers that replicate a thicker and darker lash. They are applied one strand at a time to each natural eyelash.
HOW LONG DO THE EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?
Eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your own natural lashes. Depending on your lifestyle and daily routine, refills are recommended anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?
Please come in with your eyes and face clean and makeup free. The glue will have a stronger bond with clean and oil free lashes. This also means I can spend more time applying eyelashes instead of cleaning. A cleaning fee will apply to those who continuously come with any form of makeup or oil buildup.
HOW LONG DOES THE APPLICATION PROCESS TAKE?
The application process normally takes 90 - 120 minutes for a full set of lashes and 45-60 minutes for a refill depending on the desired look and amount of natural lashes.
CAN I APPLY MASCARA TO MY LASHES?
If you insist on applying mascara to your eyelash extensions, only apply oil-free water based mascara. ONLY apply on the tips of your lashes, never on the base of your lashes since that can rip them off. Remember to always remove the mascara thoroughly.
CAN I WEAR EYESHADOW, LINER, ETC.?
Yes, you can apply eyeshadow and any other eye makeup products. Just as long as your eye makeup is oil-free and water based. NO WATERPROOF MAKEUP.
HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
For the first 48 hours after the application of eyelash extensions keep them away from water. During the first 48 hours avoid saunas, steam rooms, excessive sweating, and facials. Always clean your lashes with a foaming cleanser and a small short eyeshadow brush. Never rub, pull, twist, or pick at your eyelash extensions because this will cause natural lashes to fall out or break. Do not sleep on your face or the eyelashes will start to bend in the wrong direction. Use only oil free makeup removers in a downward motion, never side to side as this can loosen the bond. You may only wear water soluble mascara (water based). Lashes are already pre-curled so you do not need to use an eyelash curler.
ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS GOING TO DAMAGE MY NATURAL LASHES?
No, they will not damage your natural lashes. They will be applied individually and perfectly separated. There is no risk to your natural lashes unless you have the tendency to rub, pull, twist or pick at them.
I WANT TO REMOVE MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS, WILL I STILL HAVE MY OWN NATURAL LASHES?
We do offer the service to have the extension removed in a 30 minute appointment where we apply a gel remover. The gel remover is applied on top of the eyelash extension, never touching the skin, and it is allowed to sit there for 10 minutes until the bond is fully dissolved. Afterwards you will be able to clearly see your natural lashes.
WHAT IS A LASH LIFT AND TINT?
A lash lift is basically a chemical treatment that adds a semipermanent curl to your lashes for about 6 -8 weeks. After the lift is done, the tint will dye your lashes to make them darker. It is completely safe and it will not damage your lashes.
