PRE-PROCEDURE EYELASH EXTENSIONS TREATMENT

Spend extra time and remove all eye makeup prior to your appointment. Making sure your lashes are squeaky clean will ensure a longer retention. 

Do not apply heavy creams, lotions, or oils to your face prior to your appointment

Do not receive chemical treatments (tinting, perming, etc.) to your eyelashes 24 hours prior to your appointment

Tell your lash stylist if you have recently had irritating eye area treatments such as skin resurfacing, chemical peels, eyebrow waxing, laser treatments, or permanent makeup application. Recovery time varies with each procedure and individual.

 Please arrive in a timely manner.

Aftercare

  • Your eyelashes should not get wet for a minimum of 12 hours; 48 hours is ideal to allow the adhesive to properly bond to a dry eyelash. A dry wash cloth can be rolled up and placed over your brows when shower to protect your extensions from being totally saturated.
  • Do not use regular or waterproof mascara. Most brands of mascara contain chemicals properties and oils that will break down the adhesive. Removing mascara from lashes can cause the extensions to fall off prematurely as well.
  • Take special care around the eye area when cleansing your face. Gently cleanse the area and donot scrub or rub your eyes. Avoid any type of oil based products around the eyes. Again, the oils will break down causing the extensions to fall off. Resuming with normal activities is ok (i.e. face washing), though best to wait up to 12 hours.
  • Never use a clump-style eyelash curler on your extensions. This can permanently damage notonly your extensions, but your normal lashes as well. Eyelash combs are great for grooming your lashes every morning.
  • Our lash adhesives are cured by moisture, however, by avoiding excess heat, humidity, and cold weather (i.e. hot showers, saunas, zero-degree weather), your lashes will last longer. Activities such as swimming can be resumed after 48 hours.
  • Be sure to schedule an appointment for touch-ups approximately every 2-3 weeks. This will keep your lashes looking full and natural, indefinitely.
  • Do not try to remove your lash extensions yourself. Have them removed by your eyelash technician. 
  • Contact your Blume Beauty Bar eyelash technician for any further questions or concerns.

FAQ

Eyelash Extensions are lightweight, synthetic eyelashes that come in a wide variety of lengths, thicknesses, curl styles, colours and materials eg silk, polyester, faux mink and 100% Siberian mink fur – they are expertly bonded individually on a ‘lash by lash’ basis to your own natural lashes giving you longer, thicker, more luscious looking lashes. Eyelash extensions are perfect for special occasions , everyday wear or for people want to forget about mascra they are so soft and flexible you won’t even know you are wearing them

 
Are eyelash extensions safe?

Yes, eyelash extensions products are completely safe and will not damage your natural lashes when applied using the correct technique. As with any beauty treatment we recommend that you use a professional trained and certified eyelash extensions technician as application by an uncertified technician, or use of inferior quality products, may result in damage to your natural lashes.

How long does it take to apply?

The entire procedure is very relaxing, taking between 1 – 2.5 hours to apply a complete set of Eyelash Extensions depending on the design. During this time you will be lying on a comfortable beauty bed with your eyes closed – many people fall asleep and wake to find their eyelash extensions complete. Eyelash Extensions Infill treatments take approximately 45mins to 1 hour.

Can I apply eye makeup and mascara to eyelash extensions?

Yes, normal use of eye makeup is fine, however you should not find it necessary to use mascara on a daily basis, if you would like to use mascara at any time it is essential you only use a water-based mascara (not water-proof or oil-based) – regular use of mascara may shorten the lifespan of your lash extensions. Care must also be taken when removing makeup not to use any products that are contain oil or glycols – these all weaken the adhesive bond and cause eyelash extensions to fall off prematurely.

How do I prepare for my eyelash extensions treatment?

Precious lash application time can easily be used up by the need to clean eyes in preparation for your treatment – to avoid this please come to your appointment with clean, makeup free eyes. Be prepared to relax for 1-2 hours. some clients like to listen to their ipods/mps players.

How do I remove eyelash extensions?

What do eyelash extensions look like when applied?

Properly applied Eyelash Extensions will look and feel completely natural – they will be longer, more curly and definitely more full and luxurious than average natural lashes – in fact, they look so real that most people will think you were born with beautiful lashes.there are many designs and style to suit you personally, to give you your on unquie look, weather it be natural or dramatic

How long will a set of eyelash extensions last?

Lashes have growth cycles at 4-6 weeks, where you can lose about 20% of you natural lashes, but don’t worry baby ones have already grown to replace them, thus why you have probadly never noticed. and unfortunately it is hard to determine which lash is ready to fall out naturally so it is unpredictable when applying the synthetic lashes. Each day we can loose 3-5 natural lashes, but often they fall out unnoticed unless they fall into your eye, but when eyelash extensions are applied we are more aware of when they shed as we know the extensions are there plus they are longer, darker and thicker. If you sleep on your stomach with your face squashed into the pillow or you favour sleeping on one side you may notice the lashes may not last as well as the other side.we recommend to keep the full maintained look to book a refill for 2-3 weeks. Watch out for the lash cycle as right after is the perfect time for a refill!!

Can I swim, shower exercise or visit a spa while wearing eyelash extensions?

Absolutely – following the initial two day period. Our adhesives are strong and waterproof and will withstand normal wear and tear, providing the proper after-care instructions are followed lash extensions will not stop you from your life style activities. As in the after-care instructions, special care in the first 48 hours is very important to maximise the strength of the adhesive bond as it does need to completly cure before theses activitys.
