|Eyelash Extensions On! ❤|
- Before you choose a particular beauty parlour, always do your homework
- Get oil-free makeup removers
|Neutrogena Deep Clean Eye & Lip Makeup Remover|
This remover works great for that too. Just a side note. 🙂
- Stock-up on the Q-Tips!
Trust me when I say, they will indeed help a lot when you have to deal with the delicate fake lashes.
Like wiping off eyeliners and such.
And on sucky mornings – it is my guardian angel in removing my eye boogers.
- Get a facial sponge!
And rubbing your face is a no-no too.
So using the facial sponge after rubbing some cleanser on is the way to go.
Don’t forget to change sponges every 3-4 weeks!
- Eyelash Comb to smooth out the clumps!
Even fake lashes won’t keep their allure forever…
Especially after about a full week, it tends to clump up together… Or the lashes get a little out of alignment.
I don’t really remember where I got this… If I’m not wrong, probably Daiso?
In my opinion, it is also good for the natural lashes.
Don’t tug though! Just a gentle brush upwards is good enough. 🙂
So here are some questions which people ask me when they know I did eyelash extensions:
a. Do your natural lashes drop?
Yes – even without eyelash extensions… Natural lashes drop anyway. The dropping isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. In fact, in my experience.. It really is just my usually shedding amount.
b. Does the adhesive hurt your eyes?
I have to admit; there are some points in the gym when I sweat a lot and it can sting my eyes a little. 😦 So that is quite a downside to things.
c. Do you have to change your cleansing routine much?
Honestly over than having to use the sponge? Not really.
It was a little frustrating not being able to just stand under the shower and let water pour all over while I think about life… (Yea right. Mostly I just stone.)
d. Is there much up-keeping required?
Yes. If you are a person who isn’t a lover of vanity like I am; then don’t bother. These extensions need a lot of care and attention. You have to be thoroughly careful and cautious of them. I’m not going to sugar-coat things – it needs taking care of.
In fact, it is recommended to go for touch-ups every 3 weeks!
However all in all – I’m really considering making this a permanent thing. I simply love the convenience! I really can just skip eye makeup in the mornings – which is usually the most time-consuming, by the way! And I wake up perpetually looking decent. :))))
|Done with my touch-up at Carragheen!|
Yup, I did my eyelash extensions at Carragheen! Apparently one of the best places to go for eyelash extensions.
It isn’t overly-priced, if you ask me. Albeit I am looking for a cheaper alternative if I’m going to keep this up. So it is either getting a package or finding another place!
However if you are an eyelash extension newbie, I strongly recommend Carragheen because they have really professional staff there who know how to work their magic! Once you’re a tad more experienced, I don’t see any reason why you cannot explore other grounds.
In fact, I just recently had a tip to try another place! *excited*
Managed to convince the boyfriend to drive me down because it is in a rather ulu part of Singapore.
|Camwhoring while waiting for BFF to finish her touch-up!|
Apparently L is such a rough girl, her extensions needed way more touch-up than mine did. I was a tad pissed when we were both charged the same price!! My beautician told me I maintained mine really well too… 😦
Bah. But I’m oh-so-hooked onto eyelash extensions right now.
Thanks for reading!
