Imagine never having to put on mascara. Imagine never having to take it off at night. Imagine having lashes that stop people on the street. Sounds pretty sweet, right? Right. Here’s everything you have to know about having lashes like Nicole’s, thanks to Colleen at Lash By Fembotika.
WHY ARE LASH EXTENSIONS BETTER THAN FALSIES?
Eyelash extensions are better than disposable falsies because they last longer, and will not irritate your eyes if applied properly by an experienced eyelash technician.
Many people who wear disposable faslies daily, find that their eyelids will build a latex allergy from the daily strip lash glue. If you wear disposable strip lashes daily for an extended period of weeks, months or years; you will notice your eyelids becomng dry and flaky. This makes it difficult to have a clean smooth eyelid to apply make up on. Eyelash extensions on the other hand are glued 1-2mm away from the skin on your lash follicle. This gives your lashes the seamless and weightless feeling. If properly applied you should not have a reaction from the eyelash extensions.
ARE THERE ANY DANGERS OF LASH EXTENSIONS?
There are many eyelash products on the market, not all of them are safe. Some are too strong and have fumes that linger for days that can irritate your eyes. At Fembotika, we use slow drying flexible bond adhesive produced in FDA facilities in USA.
WHY SHOULD YOU AVOID CHEAPING OUT ON EXTENSIONS?
At the end of the day we think we get what we pay for. Most of the time it is true, however that is not always the case. Speak to your eyelash technician and have him/her educate you on your lash health and safe eyelash extension practice. Interview your eyelash technician as if you were to interview your first doctor. Once you’ve chosen your eyelash technician, talk to them about your lash health on your follow up appointment. Fembotika iLash bar’s technicians have 2-5 years of experience. We take healthy applications very seriously and will turn away clients who are not suitable for lash extensions.
HOW LONG DO THE LASHES LAST?
Eyelash extensions can last anywhere from 2-6 weeks depending on how you take care of them, how many are applied, your lash health, skin condition, and life style. On average Fembotika iLash Bar clients come back for a refill every 4 weeks.
WHAT SHOULDN’T YOU DO WITH THE LASHES ON?
- No water on lashes for the first 24 hours.
