Did you know?

1) One size does not fit all – Individual eyelash extensions come in a number of lengths, curls and thicknesses. Everyone’s eyelashes are different and eyelash extensions should be customised to you – in order to best flatter your eye shape and to give you the look you desire.

• 2) A full set of eyelash extensions are not just one length – This is because your natural lashes vary in length and the shape of your natural lash line is slightly rounded not straight .Talented and experienced lash artists know which lengths to put on specific lashes to achieve the most beautiful results.

3) Natural eyelashes constantly grow and fall out – You loose on average between 1-5 natural eyelashes a day, so you will lose your eyelash extensions that are attached to these lashes too! Although eyelash extensions may last indefinitely, you will need regular re-lash appointments to maintain their full look, about every 3 weeks.

• 4) You can wear mascara – The best part of having eyelash extensions is being able to ditch the mascara. However, if you choose, you can wear mascara sparingly provided that it is not waterproof, that it is an oil-free formula and that you remove it very gently with an oil free remover.

• 5) Oils break down the adhesive – Avoid using oils or oil-based products on or around your eyes while wearing eyelash extensions.

• 6) You can get them wet – Although you need to avoid wetting your lashes for the first 24 – 48 hours after application in order for the adhesive to fully set, wetting your lashes is okay and even helps to keep them clean.

• 7) It is best to avoid saunas or hot yoga  – As the adhesive may re-activate in the heat & humidity and causing some lashes to stick together.

8) Eyelash extensions do not cause any damage to your own natural eyelashes – Each eyelash extension is individually applied to a single natural eyelash and they will fall out as your natural lashes shed normally. With proper care and routine re-lash appointments you can have gorgeous eyelashes indefinitely.

9) However … it is possible to damage your natural lashes through improper care – To prevent any damage to your own natural eyelashes you must not remove your own eyelash extensions. Resist the urge to pick, pull, twist or excessively touch your extensions, which can cause some of your natural eyelashes to fall out prematurely. Always see a professional for removal, who will use a remover specific to the adhesive used. Remember to keep your lashes clean by removing make-up and brushing your lashes daily.

10) Long eyelashes are a universal symbol of beauty and femininity – Enjoy your new look lovely!
