Maybe you are curious. I was once curious about eyelash extensions, too.
Although I am not a big makeup girl (I am turning into one, actually – thanks to brands that offer new quality products good for sensitive skin like mine), I admit that I got addicted to Eyelash Extensions.
What you need to know about Eyelash Extensions?
There are different types of eyelash extensions and materials used – mostly a combination of human and animal lashes. Depending on the type or style that you want – you can go for natural-looking or dramatic showgirl type. Some of the common types are mink lashes, sable, and fox.
How Eyelash Extensions Are Applied?
The synthetic fibers are carerfully applied one at a time using a formulated lash glue on the natural eyelashes – not on the skin. It can take around 1 to 2 hours – depending on the volume and style that you are going for.
Your eyes would be basically closed the whole sessions – it would help to listen to a podcast or your favorite playlist.
If it is your first time to get an eyelash extension, you can get a patch test to make sure that you are not allergic to the lash glue.
How to Care for Your Eyelash Extensions?
Depending on the type of eyelash extensions that you got, you will have to follow different after-care procedures. The ones I had before need brushing (like normal hair brushing) after taking a shower, while the recent ones I got didn’t need such kind of care.
The basics would be:
you have to avoid getting your lashes wet for 12 to 24 hours
you cannot use oil-based makeup or skin care products
do not put mascara or any eye makeup (trust me, you do not need mascara when you got eyelash extensions!)
you cannot scratch or rub your eyes
How Long Do Eyelash Extensions Last?
Just like a normal eyelash cycle, it can last 6 to 8 weeks. Although it is advisable to visit the eyelash salon after 3 weeks of your session for touch ups. Mine lasted for 2 months – with a few eyelashes still hanging on the 3rd month.
How Much Do Eyelash Extensions Cost?
Eyelash Extensions in the Philippines can go from Php 600 to Php 3,500 depending on the type, material and volume.

After One Week
My Lash Salon’s Classic Eyelash Extensions give a showgirl feel as it is bold and prominent. It gives an effect the same as that of full mascara. People instantly notice the eyelashes – and the eyes.
A few lashes came off after a week (which is expected), that is why a touch up is recommended after 2 to 3 weeks.
