No beauty routine is complete with out a few coats of jet-black mascara or a strip of false lashes to make your peepers pop. But what if there was a way to get eye-catching lashes without any of that?
The answer is eyelash extensions.
Semi-permanent lash extensions are quickly becoming a popular pick for a beauty girl's monthly maintenance regimen, but at a cost of $200 per session and $50 for a refill, it's not something to jump into without doing your research. That's why we enlisted Qingdao Worldbeauty® Lashes , for expert tips on the hottest lash trend.
ESSENCE: How do you know if eyelash extensions are right for you?
Qingdao Worldbeauty® Lashes : If you have eyelashes, eyelash extensions are right for you. It's an enhancer that any woman can take advantage of, whether you are a full-faced glam or love natural beauty. All women can get them because it's a small enhancement that makes a big difference. The number one thing that women want is for their eyes to pop and look beautiful, but you want the ease of "I woke up like this." Eyelash extensions give you that.
ESSENCE: How does the extensions procedure work?
Qingdao Worldbeauty® Lashes : First, you'll have a 15-minute consultation and we will talk about the look that you want to achieve and we will explain the process to you. Then, we get started with the extensions, which are a lash-by-lash service. The lashes are not glued to your skin so that your natural lashes can still perform their natural functions of growing and shedding. You will lay down flat on an esthetician bed. Then, your bottom eyelids will be taped down and your top lashes will be cleaned. We separate each lash and add each lash extension using a lash adhesive.
extensions to make sure it's okay. Also, if you are allergic to latex, lash extensions are not for you. Latex is everywhere in the service, from the tape we use to the glue. Be very careful to specifically request latex-free options, which some salons do offer.
ESSENCE: How do you remove the extensions?
Mikki Bey: Your eyelashes will naturally shed, so in about a month to 90 days, the extensions will have naturally fallen out. If you are not going to continue getting them refilled, come into the salon to have them professionally removed. We offer free removal for all of our clients. There's nothing available over the counter to dissolve the lash extension adhesive, so you'll have to go to your salon for that service. It's a painless service that takes about 20 to 30 minutes.
