Before leaving the studio, Roxanne will provide advice to maintain your lashes including which makeup to avoid. This guidance will help you extend the life of your lashes.
How are lash extensions applied?
Comfortably reclined in the studio, with your eyes closed, the lash extensions are applied individually to your natural eyelashes. The duration of the application process is also influenced by the amount of natural lashes you have and the experience of the professional applying the lash extensions. The procedure is so relaxing and comfortable that many clients fall asleep.
How long do Eyelash Extensions Last?
When applied by a professional, Eyelash Extensions can last up to 3 months, depending on the natural growth cycle of your eyelashes and the skill of the lash technician applying the eyelash extensions.
Since each lash extension is attached to a single eyelash, they will fall out naturally along with the natural growth cycle of each lash. We recommend a touch-up every three to four weeks to maintain the full, beautiful look you have when you leave the studio.
What types of lash extensions are popular? What are they made of?
There are three types of lash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink. Size of the lashes and the style are discussed during your initial consultation. Once selected, the lashes are applied one at a time using a specially formulated, semi-permanent glue that will not damage your natural lashes. However, since allergic reactions are possible, there are different types of glue based on one’s sensitivity.
Will your natural lashes get harmed or damaged?
A common misconception is that lash extensions will ruin your natural lashes. They do not. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes.
What questions should I ask when searching for a professional lash technician?
Finding someone who is certified to apply the lashes is a priority. Professionals use professional products and have been properly trained to apply the lashes without damaging your natural lashes or more importantly, your eyes. Roxanne is certified by the world leader in lash training Extreme Lashes.
There are many popular websites dedicated to reviews that will help you gain confidence in your lash technician. Review the gallery of before-and-after photos, read reviews, social media and make sure they are experienced, licensed and lash-certified.
When you review client pictures, try your best to determine if it looks like a single hair per lash was applied. This is the mark of a pro.
How to care for lash extensions.
Your new lash extensions are easy to maintain. Lady Lash Studio will give you a detailed after care process following your procedure.
General instructions include:
Do not swim or spa for 48 hours after lash application to allow adequate time for bonding.
Avoid rubbing your eyes.
Avoid oil-based and waterproof mascara. Water based mascara and water based mascara remover may be used. Use mascara sparingly and gently remove mascara with water-based eye makeup remover. You can purchase water-based mascara, specially formulated for eyelash extensions here. Apply mascara on the tips only.
Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing Eyelash Extensions?
Yes. The bonding agent allows you to shower, swim, exercise, sleep and spa worry-free while wearing lash extensions. You can enjoy these lashes with little need to adjust your lifestyle other than the 48 hours after the procedure.
Are there products to avoid after a lash extension application?
The after-care varies depending on the glue used. For instance, with glue for sensitive eyes, oil-based products or makeup removers around the eye area are not recommended. Using water-proof mascara on the extensions is not recommended for any type of glue, as it is hard to remove and can actually pull off the lashes prematurely when trying to take it off
You must use oil-free eye makeup remover as anything with oil is bad for the glue that the extensions use. After the second week or so, you will be washing your face like normal. You will see the lashes fall out sometimes but that’s a normal eyelash cycle.
What are mink eyelash extensions and are they worth the buzz?
Mink lash extensions are quite possibly the most extravagant beauty treatment you will ever give yourself. These gorgeous lash extensions look and feel amazing, lasting two to four weeks longer then synthetics for a total of six to eight weeks of wear.
They look and feel completely natural and are an ideal choice for clients with delicate lashes because they are lighter in weight. Mink lashes appear more saturated while remaining natural, they have a fairly stronger volume and are resistant against water treatment and high temperatures.
How do silk lash extensions compare to mink?
Silk eyelashes, unlike the names implies, and are not made from silk. They’re made from synthetic silk that is shaped into perfectly curled lashes. They’re thicker at the bottom and thinner at the top, and are made to look natural and full.
Formerly only used by movie stars, this stunning look is now available to the mainstream market, you can now get a full set of mink lashes just like Kim K. Beyoncé or J Lo. Mink lashes are brushed off of live minks, without harming them, and provide a soft and lightweight alternative to silk. They are generally regarded as superior to all other lashes.
Mink lashes have been the more expensive of the two and would normally cost you a small fortune, but the price is now an affordable luxury. Both are great products with the mink eyelashes looking that little bit more natural and being very lightweight.
Can I wear mascara on my lash extensions?
Are Lash Extensions Safe?
What happens if glue gets in your eyes? The FDA does not regulate eyelash extension products because eyelash extensions do not touch the skin. The application process is pain-free and relaxing, however, improper application by an unqualified eyelash technician can cause damage to your natural lashes. Roxanne is a trained Certified Eyelash Extension Specialist.
Since your eyes are shut and protected the whole time lash extensions are being applied, no glue will ever get into your eye. To avoid any irritation, however, the first safety precaution you can take is to be sure that the glue is safe for your eyes and doesn’t contain anything that can harm them, like formaldehyde.
How Much Are Eyelash Extensions?
Synthetic Eyelash Extensions: $75+ This type of eyelash extension is made from an acrylic material that has been polished up to make it look very realistic. It is the sturdiest of all the eyelash extensions that are available today.
Silk Eyelash Extensions: $100+ Softer and slightly longer-lasting than the synthetic lashes. They are much more porous than a synthetic lash, but they can be as thick and can be matched up with most types of lashes today. It is a better option if you want to have a fairly natural look without making the investment in mink.
Mink Eyelash Extensions: $300-500+ Using mink fur, these eyelash extensions provide one of the most natural looks available today because real mink hair is applied. They are a longer-lasting option for extensions and generally worth the cost because they look so natural when done properly.
Removing Eyelash Extensions
Artificial eyelash extensions are attached to your natural lashes with semi-permanent glue. The removal of eyelash extensions is a delicate process, because your real eyelashes can easily be stripped away along with the extensions if you are not careful. It’s best to have it done by a professional but if you can’t wait steam and oil based remover (products that contain Glycol) can start the process.
Mascara for Eyelash Extensions
Mascara is not typically required since the extensions actually give the illusion of wearing mascara. If you decide to go for it, apply a water-based mascara. One tip to be aware of is extra care and the correct oil free products must be used when you remove the mascara.
Frequently Asked Questions about Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions
What Are Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions?
Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions are semi-permanent eyelash extensions comprised of individual synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. Our lashes are thicker at the base and taper to a fine point. They are applied on to individual eyelashes, one extension at a time, for a natural, elegant look to lengthen and add fullness to the existing lashes. Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions are for professional application only. Self-application and application by untrained individuals is strongly discouraged.
What are Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions made out of?
Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions are crafted from synthetic polyester. Synthetic lashes respond better to wear and tear than other materials. In addition, synthetics have the least possible chance of allergic reactions with human skin. Testing has shown that there are higher percentages of people who will have adverse reactions to contact with lash extensions created from animal hairs, such as mink.
What do they look like and how do they feel?
With proper application, Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions look and feel completely real. Each application is customized to suit the individual. We offer three thicknesses of lashes and four different curls with lengths ranging from 5mm to 17mm in a variety of colors for highlighting effects.
Varying individual synthetic lash lengths are chosen to carefully replicate the shape and frame of a natural lash line. The thickness of the Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions applied is determined by the health and thickness of your natural lashes as well as personal preference. The overall effect is added curl, thickness and length, opening up the eye for added definition.
Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions are designed to be indistinguishable in size and weight to human lashes. They are flexible yet crimp-resistant, and they move with your natural lashes. As long as you keep up with the touch-up applications, it is almost impossible to tell that you are wearing the extensions.
Because an Xtreme Lash® is an exact replica of an eyelash, it weighs about as much as a natural lash: practically nothing. You will not notice the addition of the extensions to your lashes and they will not cause your natural lashes to fall out ahead of their natural cycle as other enhancement methods can.
What are the benefits of wearing Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions?
Most women choose Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions to lengthen their natural lashes while others want their lashes to look fuller. A number of women with naturally light colored lashes choose Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions to darken their existing lashes. Still others love the different, fun looks they can achieve with highlighting and layering.

Above all, the main advantage of Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions is how much time you can save during your beauty regimen. Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions allow you to spend less time with makeup; mascara is certainly no longer necessary.
