What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are semi-permanent synthetic eyelashes that are curved and tapered to replicate a natural eyelash. They are applied to the natural eyelash one by one using a specially formulated medical grade glue. The overall effect is a thicker, longer lash line that will enhance your appearance and add a gorgeous frame to your blinkers.
How long do they last?
Eyelash Extensions can be worn daily without removal and can be worn as long as you would like with regular maintenance fill ups. To maintain a great appearance, these maintenance fills are generally recommended every 3 to 5 weeks, based on your own natural lash growth cycle. During a fill up appointment I will remove any lashes that are grown out and replace any lashes that have cycled out.
Do eyelash extensions make my own lashes fall out?
When applied properly and with proper care, lash extensions will not harm natural lashes. Each extension is adhered to a single natural lash in order to prevent interruption of the lash growth cycle. Be mindful not to overly rub your eyes or play, twist or pull on the lash extension as this can cause immature shedding.
Can I still wear eye makeup?
Absolutely! You can still use eyeliner and eye shadows as usual. Mascara is typically not needed with lash extensions but can be used when a touch-up is drawing near to groom your lashes, however, constant use of mascara may shorten the lifespan. Do not use a waterproof mascara, as it will dissolve the bond with the lashes. Take Care retails several products that are designed specifically for eyelash extensions including makeup remover pads.
Can I swim, shower, and spa with Lash Extensions?
Yes, eyelash extensions are waterproof. You can enjoy these lashes with little need to adjust your lifestyle. However, during the first 24 hours it is not recommended to swim, spa, or steam. The adhesive needs time to cure and bond.
