I arrived at the required time and I was invited into a relaxing room with comfy armchairs and soothing music. My lash technician arrived and we went upstairs towards the room where the magic would take place. I was asked to fill in a form : I was asked if I had any allergies, or allergic reactions to certain substances, If I had any eye or skin problems. I think it is very important to know these things in case of potential problems.
I didn't, so we got to work. I was asked what effect I want my lashes to have - I wanted them to look natural but to be visible and a little bit out of the ordinary. The lash technician decided the number of extensions to be applied according to my eye shape and lash length or curving.
Of course I asked many questions for you my lovely readers - you need to know :
First of all, you should wear no eye make-up especially mascara on the day of the applicaton of the extensions.
The quality of the extensions and especially the glue is very important for the long-lasting effect of the extensions. You should gently detangle and comb the extensions with a spooly brush or an old mascara wand every day so they would look good all the time.
You should come back to redo your lashes in about 3 weeks (if you take good care of them they can last longer!). If you want them taken out, you need to come back to the salon where you put them on, they are quickly removed with a special solution.
And an advice from me : be careful not to sleep in a position that will harm the lashes!
And now let's see the effect of the eyelash extensions :

I really like how my lashes look : they frame the eye very well and they bring the focus onto the eye area. I would wear some mascara onto the bottom lashes to balance the look of the lashes. If you want a better contrast with your eye colour you can ask to be put in several coloured eyelash extensions.
Is it worth it? Well it depends on you! Overall they are quite expensive to put on and maintain. But the look that they give cannot be replicated with any mascara. They are very suitable for any special occasion and it is clear that you will be the centre of attention everywhere you go! I love my eyelash extensions and it is certainly an experience to have! I'll leave you with an impromptu photo session I did to flaunt my new Chic Lashes extensions ! Lots of kisses ! M
