Got questions? No problem. Eyes On Me has answers. Below are some of our most frequently asked questions.
What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extensions are a great way to lengthen and thicken your own natural lashes. Lash Extensions are synthetic strands that are made to replicate a natural eyelash. When applied, eyelash extensions lengthen and thicken your own natural eyelashes. Single strands are applied to each individual eyelash, one by one. With proper application, lash extensions look and feel completely natural.
How long will my eyelash extensions last?
Eyes On Me eyelash extensions are semi-permanent and will last the entire life of the eyelash (with proper care and maintenance). Give your lashes TLC. When removing your eye makeup (liner, shadow, etc.), gently go over the area with a cleansing wipe instead of placing cotton pads or puffs over your lids—not only could you eventually weaken the extensions and mess them up, the cotton fibers get stuck on lashes. The lash extensions will shed with the natural growth cycle of your own lashes (normally 60 to 90 days so when one of your natural lashes is at the end of its cycle and falls off, it takes the extensions with it, therefore new growth will appear). If you wish for you lashes to remain full and glamorous refills are recommended every 2-3 weeks and they will last or as long as you continue to have them refilled.
Will my eyelids feel heavy with a full set?
If your Eyes On Me eyelash extensions are applied properly you will not feel any discomfort. You will only know they are there when you look in a mirror, they should be feel completely weightless.
How long will it take to Apply Eyelash Extensions and how is it done?
The application process for lash extensions normally takes about 90-120 minutes for a full set of lashes and 45-60 minutes for a refill. After your initial consultation with your stylist on the length / thickness you will lay comfortably on a massage table with your eyes closed. Relaxing ambient music can be played while the professional technician applies your lash extensions. The Eyelash professional will then apply an under eye gel pad or medical tape to cover your lower lashes; this protects the lower lash.
Will eyelash extensions damage my own lashes?
Eyes On Me eyelash extensions are safe. The extensions are attached to one hair at a time and the glue does not touch the skin. Since lash extensions do not touch your skin, they do not conflict or interfere with your contacts or normal daily activities. Synthetic eyelashes are adhered about 1mm away from your skin.
Can I wear mascara with extensions?
Although it will not be necessary for you to wear mascara you can still certainly wear it. In fact, one of the many benefits of eyelash extensions is that you do not need to use mascara. If you must apply mascara, however, only use water-based mascara. Ensure that the mascara does not contain oils; apply only to the tips of the lashes. Chemical mascara will shorten the life of your extensions and do damage to your normal lash.
Can I wear eyelash extensions if I swim, sweat when I work out, or use the sauna?
Absolutely, the bonding agent used to apply your eyelash extensions is waterproof and allows you to shower, swim, exercise etc. Many women you are very active have eyelash extension as it is convenient for them to not have to worry about wearing mascara. They look like they have mascara on but without the fuss or mess.
How do I remove my makeup without damaging my new lashes?
When removing eye makeup please ensure that you use an oil free cleanser as cleanser which contain oil will breakdown the bond on the extensions. Oil free cleansers will not harm the lashes or the glue.
How do I care for my lashes after I get eyelash extensions?
We recommend that you do not wash your eye area for about 24-48 hours after the eyelash application. A special waterproof bonding agent is used. Glue does not contain any fumes or irritants and is long lasting. It is critical that for 24 hours after the lash application you do not get your lashes wet with any products or water. Doing so will result in loss of extensions prematurely. Do not pull, tug or rub your eyes and eyelashes, because it may cause you to pull out your own natural lash.
How much do eyelash extensions cost?
Eyes On Me eyelash extensions can range anywhere from $125 to $225 for a full set, depending on the salon and the type of lashes that are used. Eyelash extensions are available in a number of lengths and thickness. Your technician will consult with you to understand what type of style you are interested in. The overall look of the lashes is very natural.
