What do Eyelash Extensions look like when applied?
Eyelash extensions are individual synthetic/mink lashes that are applied directly onto your natural eyelashes , by a trained professional. A professional application ensures whether natural or dramatic , you will be sure to receive the look you desire . When correctly applied , the look and feel is completely natural looking and real.
How long will a set of Eyelash Extensions last?
When applied by a professional, eyelash extensions will last the length of the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes, usually between 4 and 8 weeks. Depending on your activity and day-to-day routine, touchups should only be required every 2 to 4 weeks.
How often should I get touch-ups?
We recommend getting a touch up every 2 to 3 weeks. If you wait too long your eyelash extensions will fall out and you will require a full set. Your natural eyelashes fall off every 45 – 60 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. A touch up is needed to fill in any lashes that fallen. Touch ups average about 45 minutes.
Can I apply mascara to Eyelash Extensions?
Yes, even though mascara is not really required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara . It must however only be water based mascara. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara or any type of oil based mascara can dissolve the bonding agent and shorten the life of your eyelash extensions . Care also needs to be taken in washing off the mascara. Only use a water based eye makeup remover.
