FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - Lash Extensions

Do eyelash extensions make my own lashes fall out?
No eyelash extensions will not make your own natural lashes fall out. Your own eyelashes has its own growth cycle and will fall out naturally. People lose on average 3-5 lashes a day. We advise not to pick, pull or rub your lashes as this will cause your lashes to fall out prematurely. You should not attempt to remove lash extensions by yourself, or with any product. The procedure requires lash extensions to be professionally removed.
Do you supply a full selection of lash lengths and thicknesses?
Yes - We offer a tailor made service to enhance your eyeshape and meet your needs, using a comprehensive range of lashes. Available in 1 mm increments from 7 mm up to 15 mm lengths and in several thicknesses ranging from super fine (0.05mm) to extra thick lashes (0.25mm). We also have the full range of lash curve which will enable us to create the right image for you according to your lifestyle and preference.
Can I wear mascara?
You can wear mascara but avoid wearing mascara for the first week and do not use waterproof mascara as the properties in waterproof mascara will break down the bonding glue. Ideally mascara should be used on the ends of the eyelash.
Can I still wear eye liner and eye shadow?
You can still wear eye make-up but it is important not use any oil based make-up. The properties in oil-based products will loosen the bonding of the eyelashes. It is also best to avoid creams and make-up removers which contain oil as these will cause the eyelash extensions to fall off your natural lashes.
What should I use to remove my makeup?
The lash industry recommends Chrissanthie Eyelid Cleanser which is oil free and safe to use with eye lash extensions, this cleanser removes all make up and even waterproof makeup.

What are in-fills, why do I need them and how often do I need them?
Naturally your lashes will fall out and new eyelashes will grow to replace the ones that have fallen out. To maintain beautiful long lashes infills will be needed to replace the lost lashes, our clients usually return every 3-5 weeks for touch ups. Infills done via other technicians will only be considered if they meet our high level of standards, and a minimum 1.5h service is required on their first infill visit to us
Do I have to get a full set of eyelash extensions?
A full set of eyelash extensions is always recommended for a consistent blended effect, although half sets are available for those who want to trial suitability, or achieve an extremely subtle effect or corner flicks.
Are the eyelash extensions glued to my skin?
The eyelash extensions are not glued onto the skin, only on your natural lash.
Is the eyelash glue and glue remover safe?
Yes we only use quality and CE Approved products, both are perfectly safe . There is a certain amount of eyelash adhesive material which will be used to attach the artificial lashes to the existing eyelashes. During or after the procedure adhesive material may become dislodged which may irritate the eyes, in which case the eye should be flushed with water and in rare cases further follow-up care may be needed.
What are the differences between these lashes?

Faux Mink lashes
Lighter in weight, softer, and more flexible than regular synthetic lashes. These lashes have been manufactured to the highest standards and therefore more longer lasting, because they are very light and hold their curve well, they are highly recommended for every day wear. The effect is very natural.
Siberian Mink lashes
Extremely soft, flexible and natural, they are collected by brushing the mink, the fallen fur is then delicately sterilised, dyed and prepared by hand. These are hypo-allergenic. The surface area ratio of these lashes are closer to your own lashes then the faux mink or synthetic lashes so the 100% real mink lashes are not suitable for clients who wants a very dark and thick look. They last longer than their synthetic counterparts, and are noticeably lighter, softer and feathery. At least 2 hours application time recommended to achieve the best results.
