How do I prepare for my appointment?
♥ To maximize time with your lash stylist, come to your appointment with clean eyes free of makeup.
♥ Remove all make-up, including foundation, eyeliner, eye shadow, mascara, eye creams, and eye serums.
♥ Second Cleanse eye area and eyelashes gently but thoroughly to remove any residual oils or mascara.
♥ Shower before your arrival.
♥ Do not wear contacts to your appointment. Wear glasses instead.
♥ Do not apply heavy creams, lotions or oils to your face within 48 hours prior to your eyelash application.
♥ Do not receive chemical treatments to your eyelashes, such as tinting or perming, within 48 hours prior to your appointment.
♥ Ensure you have fully recovered from recent irritating eye-area treatments, such as skin-resurfacing procedures, chemical peels, eyebrow waxing, laser treatments and permanent makeup application. Recovery time varies with each procedure and individual.
How long do eyelash extensions last?
This will depend on several factors, the biggest one is how well you maintain your lashes. To maintain your lashes fill appointments are necessary every 2 to 4 weeks to replace the lash set that have shed or outgrown naturally. We always advise that after the initial set of extensions a fill should be done at 2 weeks as they may have lost or shed more than normal due to the time of their shed cycle.
Will they damage my natural lashes?
Since the extensions are applied to your existing natural lashes, away from the base and don’t touch the skin, the natural lash is not harmed. The eyelash extensions do not force the natural lash to shed or break unless improperly applied or an extension that is too heavy for the natural lash is used.
How long will my appointment take?
A full set can take anywhere from 1.5 hours - 3 hours. This will depend on the type of lashing being applied and how many natural lashes a client has.
Can I wear makeup with eyelash extensions?
Mascara and Eyeliner are not recommended as the oils can break down the bonds of the adhesive. If you are wearing eyeshadows or liners, proper cleansing is imperative.
How do I take care of my extensions?
♥ Avoid oil based makeup and makeup removers. Oil breaks down the glue that attaches your extension
♥ Clean them with Lash Shampoo everyday (available to purchase at our studio)
♥ No tugging, rubbing or pulling
♥ Gently brush them daily with the wand you are given at your appointment
