Eyelash extensions are faux/man-made lashes that are placed
on the natural eyelashes with semi-permanent glue, these lashes are applied meticulously
with proper equipment including certain tweezers that are specially designed and
other necessary tools such as eye pads to prevent any harm initially to the
bottom lashes or the eyes. Eyelash
extensions are for permeant and rather than sticking on false lashes extensions
appear much more natural (depending on which type and style) and pleasing.
Everyone has a different eyelash cycle however the
recommended time period is to come back for refills is every 2 weeks or monthly
refills depending on the customer. However after 3 refills it is highly
recommended to completely remove your current set and ask for a new set, as
refills are used to fill in any gaps whereas, asking for a new set ensures your
natural lashes are clean and that looking they’re best.

Eyelash extensions are an amazing solution for anyone who has pale/ blonde lashes, however if you are someone with long pale lashes we recommend a lash lift which enchases your natural lashes and adds more curl, length and colour. Eyelash extensions are still a great method and will look just as good as someone with naturally dark lashes.

Once you’ve taken off
fake strip on lashes most of the time they leave clumps of glue on your eyes
especially on the lash line. This may
cause irritant to the eyes, skin, and mucous membranes on a cellular level. To
fix this simply pick the best make-up remover/cleanser oil for your skin, it is
highly recommended to choose oil-based products as they are most affective and
powerful for example: Naturel Cleansing Oil or any that works for you. Use your
chosen product with a Q-tip and gently massage the eyes for a couple minutes.
Then wash the eyes with water and if there is still left over glue residue left
using make up wipes gently wipe.
Eyelash extensions are a process using semi-permanent fake lashes on the natural
eyelashes, however a lash lift does not include false lashes and are much
simpler as they enhance the colour, length and curl of the natural lashes,
rather than gluing false lashes. Many prefer lash lifts over extensions as it
is simply more affordable to some and does not need refills unlike extensions.
Lash lifts are often referred to or thought of as a perm for eyelashes

applying a whole new set and are used to cover any gaps in the eyelashes as
some would have fallen out over a period of time. Refills make sure you’re

Once you’ve applied eyelash extensions you do not need to apply mascara nor is it good to use with extensions, it will damage the glue and and the whole process.
