Microblading, digital hairstrokes, powder brows, ombre brows, combination brows

What even are they all?!

Lets start by saying, all are permanent cosmetic treatments, all place pigment into the skin – it’s just the methods that differ and the appearance.

Microblading: mimics eyebrow hairs, carried our with a manual hand tool, it has a blade made up of many pins, this method in effect makes tiny “cuts” into the skin where the pigment is placed. For the best healed results ideally. Hair strokes can also be achieved by use of a machine with an acupuncture needle – you’ll often hear these referred to as digital hair strokes.

Powder brows: mimics the powdery makeup look, this technique is carried out with a machine and acupuncture needle, this method makes lots of tiny dots in the skin there the pigment is placed. This treatment is suitable for all skin types. There is also much scope with this treatment as it allows us to create the likes of a soft powder brow or a more dense powder brow depending on the clients lifestyle and personal choice.

Then we have the combination – which for many can be the perfect option, the natural look of hairstrokes, particularly to the head and border of the brow, but then pixelated powder through the main body of the brow where we would naturally have more hair.

So which is right for you? One of the main factors will be your skin type and age, these two things aside, it will be down to your lifestyle and the appearance you are personally drawn to.

Powder brows is generally suitable for all skin types and all ages, there is the ability to bespoke the density of the powder, so for an older client they may want a softer powder brow, rather than a heavier more pixelated brow.

Microblading is best suited to skin that isn’t oily, no large pores and the younger skin – this helps ensure the hairstrokes will heal and remain as crisp as possible without blurring.

Ultimately, all PMU needs to be considered permanent, all techniques are entering the skin whether blading (microblading) or pixelating (powder brows) – both require dedicated aftercare to allow the skin to heal with care, and both need to have considerations for the long term longevity so as to limit the long term trauma to the skin.

There are so many factors to consider, but with the right artist you will be guided to making the right decision for you.

Like it or not, human societies place a great deal of emphasis on a person’s appearance. This has been true since human beings first developed the ability to see each other. Due to this fact, people have developed a number of different products and procedures that help enhance their physical appearance.

One such procedure is microblading. What is this procedure? What is it designed to enhance? Why would anyone want such a thing? If you’re seeking the answers to these questions, then just keep reading!

What Is Microblading?

microbladingThis procedure is designed to enhance the eyebrows. More specifically, it’s designed to fill out eyebrows that have become thin for one reason or another. Eyebrow hair can fall out for a number of different reasons. Sometimes it’s simply age. Other times it’s because of some type of damage to the skin or the follicle.

Whatever the reason, some people have trouble with thin eyebrows. The normal answer to this problem is the use of eyebrow pencils. You simply draw in color, which makes it look as though your eyebrows have more hair than they do.

Permanent Makeup

This is tedious since it must be done every day. It takes time, and what’s more, it forces you to spend money on makeup. This is why permanent makeup has been invented. To help rid yourself of these problems!

So what is microblading? A type of permanent makeup. As you might have guessed from the name, it involves a small bit of cutting. A trained professional cuts tiny incisions in the skin under your eyebrows. Once cut, they insert colored pigments that match the colors of your eyebrows.

If it sounds painful, don’t worry. When done by a trained professional there’s almost no pain at all. Not only that, but the healing times tend to be rather short. Most people are up and about within a few weeks.

Does It Need To Be Replaced?

Permanent makeup isn’t entirely permanent, it’s true. Much like any tattoo, it can fade over time. The reasons for the fade are numerous. Over time your skin cells die and your body sheds them. Many of those skin cells contain pigment, and so the pigment goes with them.

However, the procedure won’t need to be re-done for several years at least. In addition, even when the pigment starts to fade and blur many people find their eyebrows to still appear full.

Don’t Go Cheap!

Whatever you do, don’t go to a bargain makeup artist. Everyone loves to save money, and it can be tempting to get the lower price. However, lower prices often mean lower quality tools and artists with less experience.

The last thing you want is an inexperienced artist using sub-par tools to cut open your skin and insert pigment. So when you’re considering where to get your eyebrows done, make sure you’re going somewhere reputable.

At the end of the day, not everyone needs microblading.  However, many people find that their eyebrows just don’t look the way they’d like. If that describes you, then this procedure could be the solution.

Keratin Lash Lift: What You Need to Know

Keratin Lash Lift: What You Need to Know

karetin lash lift


With the eye being such a delicate place, a lash lift could be the best thing yet to enhance the beauty of it, but finding somebody who is licensed to use the lashes is a must.

The effect of this Lash Lift is attained by a silicon rod covered in a Keratin Formula. Keratin works as a base to fresh hair full of protein into the strands, and it works to ravel and strengthens the lashes while giving a temporary shape.

At 45 minutes to an hour, the service needs a lot less time than eyelash extensions, which generally take two or more hours.

Why Women Need It?

Lash Lifts are ending up being progressively popular with women, particularly because of low maintenance and also because of the prime season of Occasions, Special Celebrations, and Wedding Events. These Keratin Lash Lifts are perfect for giving the extra special factor for the desired look, and this is quickly replacing the extensions and stacking up multiple layers of mascara.

For the customer (ideally a woman) who wants a natural “woke up like this” look, the service alone is best. If you’re looking for drama or the very same type of surface you’d get from layers of mascara, it might not be enough for you. In many cases, lifting does not produce the mascara result that extensions do, particularly for those with naturally really great and light lashes.

Particular lash lifts also work terrific as a pre-service to extensions if you’re trying to find a fuller, more remarkable appearance. The lifting treatment can be done a number of weeks before the extension application for included lift and volume, which will also minimize the contrast of the natural lashes versus the extensions. Here are some useful benefits of Keratin Lash Lifts to women:

  • No need to grab those eyelash curlers.
  • Makes the early morning regular quicker.
  • The eyes will appear younger and open.
  • Low upkeep.
  • Very little aftercare needed.

Just how much does a keratin lash lift cost?

It depends, but in major places, the starting cost is $175 and can go up. One needs to study before the visit, and being clear about what you’re searching for by discussing designs used, showing photos and going over issues or needs.

Aftercare of Keratin Lash Lift

The very first 24 hr after the treatment is vital as the lashes will still be set. Avoid using mascara, swimming, using water straight to the eyes, withstand choosing a sauna, or into a steam bath.

Many people get up the next day with the curl being much more extreme than it was directly after the treatment, which is terrific to hear. The appeal of having lashes that stay curled can be done by using a lot less mascara.

As it gets more to the 6 – 8-week mark, one can find that the lashes will start to unwind, which is when one can wish to start considering getting scheduled back in once again.

Eyelash Extensions: The Surprising Benefits

The Surprising Benefit of Lash Extensions You Never Realized Before

eye lash extensions

Growing up, I wore whatever drugstore mascara I could get my hands on, using every last bit I could get out of each tube (probably way past the three-month expiration). As a result, I’d constantly have flakes and smudges under my eyes, and so I developed a bad habit of rubbing my under-eyes throughout the day, paranoid something was there. My mom would tell me to stop, saying, “You’re gonna have bags when you’re older.”

That’s stuck with me ever since, so when the opportunity to get eyelash extensions came up at work, I thought, well if I wear extensions, then I don’t need mascara, and if I don’t wear mascara, then I won’t rub under my eyes. So naturally I said yes. Fast-forward four months, and I’m still hooked. Here’s why.

Not only do you get to wake up looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and ready to go, but you also don’t need to remove your mascara at night (or worry about going waterproof on vacation, or crying during a movie—you get the point). And there’s another MAJOR benefit to lash extensions I hadn’t realized before: they’re anti-aging in more ways than one. Yes there are some critics who say a fluffy fringe isn’t worth the risks—when done by someone who isn’t a licensed and certified professional, it can damage the natural lashes or cause irritation to the eyes—but when applied properly, they can take years off one’s appearance.

“Many of my clients say their lash extensions make them look up to 10 years younger,” says Clementina Richardson, founder of New York–based Envious Lashes, where I’ve become a regular as of late. “It’s almost like having an eyelift without going under the knife. Plus, fuller-looking lashes can enhance the beauty of your eyes, making you appear more youthful and alert.”

New York dermatologist Marina Peredo, MD agrees. “Many older women who have a bit of skin laxity on their upper eyelids experience a little lifting effect when they get extensions,” she says. “The curvature and length of the lashes can also cover the lid a bit more, camouflaging the lax skin. Additionally, our natural lashes get thinner and shorter—and sometimes even gray—as we age, so making them look thicker, longer and darker can give a youthful look to the face. When done by a qualified expert, extensions can be a great option.”

Another anti-aging upside to falsies? “Because you no longer need to wear mascara or use a mechanical eyelash curler, you won’t be removing as much makeup or pulling at your lashes like you did before,” Richardson says. (As you can imagine, this really resonated with me. No more rubbing to remove mascara or eyeliner at night—yes!)

“Eyelid skin is the thinnest and most sensitive on our bodies, so harsh chemicals in many makeup removers can leave it red, dry or irritated,” says Dr. Peredo. “Avoiding this irritation and unnecessary rubbing of the area may result in less fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, although it hasn’t been studied. And if you wear waterproof makeup, you’re most likely using even stronger makeup removers and more rubbing.” It all makes sense!

What Is Microblading, and Is It Safe During Pregnancy?

What Is Microblading, and Is It Safe During Pregnancy?

Eyebrow Microblading before and after


Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure that results in natural, fuller-looking brows. But if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, there’s more you need to know about this trending beauty treatment.

Long gone are the days of super-thin eyebrows tweezed to smithereens. Bushy eyebrows are now in vogue, prompting women to add eyebrow pencils and gels to their shopping carts. But did you know there’s a semi-permanent way to achieve the coveted fuller brow? It’s called microblading, and it’s available at many beauty salons and cosmetic offices across the country.

“Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo technique performed to create fuller, natural-looking brows,” says Nicole Prochnow, a microblading expert at Ulmer Dermatology in Long Beach, California. Using a small handheld blade of microneedles, a technician will make hair-like strokes on the basal layer of the epidermis (the outermost covering of skin). The embedded pigment looks like individual hairs, and the results last for 1-3 years—unlike a traditional tattoo, which is completely permanent since larger quantities of ink are inserted deeper into the skin.

According to Prochnow, “microblading enhances your natural features by creating a fuller brow look. Whether your brows are overplucked, patchy, missing tails, or you simply want thicker brows, microblading can achieve this while looking natural.” Before you book a microblading appointment, it pays to be prepared. Read on to learn more about the microblading process, and find out whether it’s a safe procedure for everyone.

The Benefits of Microblading

When it comes to beauty, eyebrows are more important than you may think. “Eyebrows are essential because they accentuate the eyes, shape the face, and play a powerful role in the way you communicate yourself to the world,” say Peaches and Masu, co-founders and instructors at SIX+AIT Microblading Studio NYC. Many of their clients get microblading to “enhance or improve their existing brow shape.” They often desire to repair damage from over-plucking or natural hair loss.

Microblading may also be used for medical-related purposes. For example, patients who have lost their brows from chemotherapy can get microblading to restore self-confidence, says Michele Green, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist in New York City. “Microblading can also be done before chemotherapy to avoid losing one of your most important facial features,” she adds.

Peaches and Masu mention three main benefits of microblading:

You’ll have beautiful brows from the moment you wake up. You never need to fill in your eyebrows, which speeds up your morning routine—perfect for busy moms!
Your brows will be sweatproof and waterproof in any weather. You won’t need to worry about pencils and powders melting off your face from the heat—or from your toddler’s messy bath time routine.
Since the microbladed brows are “perfectly symmetrical and professionally designed,” they’ll frame and enhance your face. The pigment also looks natural, so most people won’t know you’ve had microblading done.

Microblading Side Effects

Of course, no beauty treatment is completely free of side effects. Prochnow says some people notice a little flaking and scabbing after the process. There’s also a risk of infection anytime you cut the skin—although chances are minimal if you properly treat the microbladed area. “You want to make sure you keep the area moist with Aquaphor or Vaseline to avoid scabbing,” but avoid wetting the area for about a week afterwards, says Prochnow. “Also avoid picking at any scabs or rubbing the brows during the healing process so you don’t pull out any pigment.”

Peaches and Masu add that some people develop an allergic reaction to some of the products used like latex, pigment, or lidocaine. This could cause temporary swelling, redness, and irritation. The technician should test a small patch test of skin prior to the treatment to ensure there is no negative response, adds Dr. Green.

Also note that you must be 18 years old to receive microblading. If you already have permanent make-up—or if you’d like to cover up a botched microblading job—you should first visit the artist for a consultation.

Microblading During Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

Thanks to frustrating body changes during pregnancy, many women want to indulge in a little self-care. But microblading is not a safe treatment for pregnant women. Here’s why:

“There are no studies on the effects of pigments used in microblading and the chemicals they contain, or how they can affect the fetus,” says Dr. Green. It’s best not to risk the safety of your baby for well-groomed eyebrows.
Numbing creams help ease pain during a microblading session, says Prochnow. These topical anesthetics often contain epinephrine, which may be linked to fetal tachycardia and cardiac problems.

Dr. Green says needles used in microblading are sterile and disposible. However, getting microbladed without proper protocol could result in infections. This includes blood infections, such as like HIV and Hepatitis B, that may harm the fetus.
Pregnancy hormones affect your blood circulation, and they make you more likely to bleed. Excess bleeding may lead to subpar microblading results, since it could fade the pigment or impact its absorption into the skin.

Some pregnant women experience hyperpigmentation (melasma), which is darkening of the skin around the mouth, cheeks, and forehead. This might prompt your technician to choose the wrong pigment color. In turn, your eyebrows might not match your natural skin once the melasma goes away after pregnancy.
Similarly, you’ll likely experience bloating while pregnant. Microbladed brows may look completely different once your bloating subsides after pregnancy, says Dr. Green, and you may not be happy with the result.

Women should also avoid microblading when breastfeeding. That’s because if a mother gets an infection from microblading, she could pass it along to her nursing child. “Most likely, the procedure wouldn’t cause an infection or negative side effects, but for precautionary reasons, you should definitely wait until you are done breastfeeding,” says Prochnow.
The Microblading Technique: How Does it Work?

If you decide to get microblading, the best course of action is visiting a reputable eyebrow boutique, salon, spa, or doctor’s office, says Dr. Green. Research the practice and artist beforehand to ensure you like their work. “See someone who has been certified and trained by a professional microblading instructor/school and is a licensed semi-permanent makeup artist,” says Prochnow. “Also make sure you are in a clean, sterile office that meets all the health requirements for a tattoo procedure.”

Microblading is typically a two-session process, with the sessions spaced six-eight weeks apart. The first session likely involves a consultation, followed by numbing of the skin, drawing the preferred shape, and microblading. Prochnow says to avoid drinking alcohol or taking Advil/Ibuprofen for 24-48 hours before the procedure to avoid excessive bleeding, which can lead to scabbing.

Treated brows last anywhere from 1-3 years, depending on your health, the artist’s technique, and lifestyle factors like sun exposure and activity level. Skincare treatments may also affect longevity—for example, anti-aging products and lasers make pigments fade faster. “If you are happy with your microblading, I recommend getting a touch up every one or one-and-a-half years to keep them full and fresh,” recommends Prochnow. But be wary of getting too many touch-ups in a short period of time, since this can damage the skin and affect results. Peaches and Masu say …

Real Women Share What It’s Like Wearing Eyelash Extensions for Over 6 Years

Here is a great article by Alina Gonzalez on long term use of lash extensions.



There are those who dabble in eyelash extensions, perhaps trying them once for a special occasion, like a big vacation or wedding, and then there are those for whom extension fills are commonplace, such as a standing manicure or blowout appointment. Sure, it costs roughly $200 to get your first set and another $60 or so every refill (in Los Angeles, at least), but to some, it’s worth it. There are those out there who haven’t let the world see their natural lashes for five years or more. And it’s these folks, in particular, who likely have the best eyelash extension tips.

What is it really like to have eyelash extensions for years, you ask? Does it ruin your natural lashes? Does it boost your confidence? Why keep up with it for so long? To answer all your most burning questions about eyelash extensions, we found four real people who fall squarely into the devotee camp. Keep scrolling for each of their stories and all of their best eyelash extension tips.

Story No. 1



Name: Adriana

Age: Pass. Haha!

How many years have you had eyelash extensions?

Six years.

How often do you get them filled?

It depends on the person who does them, but anywhere between 10 days and three weeks.

What makes them worth it to you, time-wise, financially, and in general?

I never really wore that much makeup to begin with, so it hasn’t really cut my makeup routine in half or anything. Also, it’s an additional service; it isn’t a necessary one. But what makes it worth it to me is that it is what I want, and I am happier knowing that I have an amazing full set of lashes. I get compliments on my lashes a lot, and that helps make it worth it to me.

How has having eyelash extensions changed you (confidence, beauty routine, etc.)?

I wake up and never have to worry about putting on makeup. Of course, if I go out, I may have to add some eyeliner and lip gloss, but I don’t worry about having raccoon eyes with mascara or my eyelashes falling off with strips. It’s definitely boosted my confidence with the fact alone that no matter what, I always have long, full eyelashes that make my eyes pop.

It’s definitely boosted my confidence with the fact alone that no matter what, I always have long, full eyelashes that make my eyes pop.

What’s your favorite part about them?

I’m Chinese, and … I want bigger eyes. I feel like the dramatic effect the eyelash extensions bring to my eyes makes my eyes always a focal point. I can wake up next to my guy and just bat my eyelashes knowing that I look good!

Have they changed your natural lashes? Have they had any negative impacts on your natural lashes, their growth pattern, etc.?

It really depends on who has done them. I’ve had some girls that did so many clusters that I lost chunks of my eyelashes and would pray, Oh god, please let them grow back! When I go to the right people, I don’t notice anything negative.

Forever might be a strong word, but do you plan to have them indefinitely?

I’d like to. I mean, I don’t know if I will be in my 60s really concerned with having long, luscious lashes every day. Haha! But I see it for the next 10 to 15 years.

Do you recommend lashes to any beginners thinking about trying them?

I do, but I also recommend they find someone who is good and not try to get the best deal just to get them, because you will notice a difference, and the quality is what matters the most with this service.

Story No. 2



Name: Nicole
Age: 47

How many years have you had eyelash extensions?

More than eight years.
What makes them worth it to you, time-wise, financially, and just in general?

They are so worth it to me because they look amazing all the time. You can just put on lip gloss and go if that’s all you want or have the time to do.

How often do you get them filled?

Every three to four weeks.
What makes them worth it to you, time-wise, financially, and just in general?

They are so worth it to me because they look amazing all the time. You can just put on lip gloss and go if that’s all you want or have the time to do.
How has having eyelash extensions changed you (confidence, beauty routine, etc.)?

I feel like I look pretty all the time. They just open up your whole face; you smile with your eyes too, not just your mouth. I get so many compliments from people who say that my lashes are so beautiful, and they don’t even know that they are extensions until I tell them.

What’s your favorite part about them?

They are simple and easy. So pretty and look so natural, and you cannot see any clumps of glue or anything like that.

Have they changed your natural lashes? Have they had any negative impacts on your natural lashes, their growth pattern, etc.?

No. I think people always say that their lashes were so thin and short after they took them off, implying that the lash extensions did something to change their own lashes, but if you have been wearing extensions for some time, you may tend to think that your own natural lashes were that amazing, long, and thick when in fact they did not change and are still the same as before.

Story No. 3



Name: Sharifah

Age: 36

How many years have you had eyelash extensions?

On and off 10 years, mostly on the past six years.

How often do you get them filled?

I try to get them filled every two weeks, three weeks tops. Having a full, lush set of lashes enhances my eyes so much that I try to stay on top of my fills. If I have an event or something special I am attending, I make sure to see Ari [Arianna Montazem] for a fill before. It is now on the checklist, such as getting a mani-pedi, a blowout, etc.

What makes them worth it to you, time-wise, financially, just in general?

How much the lashes enhance my eyes—and their natural beauty—makes them worth it to me. The lash extensions open my eyes up and make them look brighter and more awake. Also, I save money on mascara and the whole process of curling my lashes. Another bonus is that I do not have to deal with the messiness of applying fake eyelashes or the potential disaster of a strip of lashes falling off during partying or any other fun activity.

How much the lashes enhance my eyes—and their natural beauty—makes them worth it to me.

Everything You Will Need to Know About Eyebrow Microblading

Beauty insiders are obsessed with this eyebrow therapy.

When you have tried every pen, powder, pigment, gel, and stencil in Sephora and your brows are still lean, microblading–a more permanent solution to thin brows–is your last-ditch-effort treatment that promises to alter your brow life. The face tattoo technique is not as scary as it seems. We spoke to Fort Lauderdale microblading guru Mali, aka “Fleeked by Mali“, to find out what you need to know about the remedy that beauty insiders

Microblading is a Kind of tattooing
Unlike a normal tattoo, “microblading is a sort of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted beneath your skin using a manual handheld tool rather than a machine,” Mali describes. “I draw hair-like strokes using the instrument to mimic natural hairs on your brows. Despite the fact that it is not as deep as the normal tattoo, it is still a tattoo since pigment is implanted beneath the skin.”


feathered eyebrows

You Will Need to prepare
If you drink a whole lot, take aspirin, or use retinol, stop 1 week prior to your treatment. “Retinol makes your skin thin and then you bleed a bit more,” Mali states. “Prevent blood thinners, aspirin, and alcohol”

It does not hurt (too much)
“Some believe more than others. Overall it seems like little scratches. You feel it, but it is not unbearable. It is similar to having a baby,” says Mali, who preps her patients’ brows with topical numbing cream and shirts up during the procedure to dull the discomfort.

Microblading takes some time
“I really don’t like to rush anybody,” says Mali, who blocks off two hours to get new customers.

Aftercare Is Vital
Some patients experience redness and itching during the first week, which Vaseline can relieve. Brows will appear slightly darker at first, but the colour will fade 30 to 40 percent. Aftercare lotions are provided during your initial appointment. “Overall they look great right off and you do not need to hide,” Mali states. “Slight redness and swelling is normal.”

Based on the lifestyle and skin, Mali’s customers return for touch-ups after every six months.

While lower-priced services are accessible, Mali cautions against visiting inexperienced technicians. Bear in mind, microblading is a form of tattooing. For the very best microblading in Fort Lauderdale call Mali at 941-779-7541 .…

Lash Extensions: Tips You Need To Know Before Heading To The Salon

Here is a great article by Dana Oliver https://tinyurl.com/lash-extensions


Most women don’t have the time or patience to apply fake eyelashes every day. (We barely have enough time to use an eyelash curler!) So it’s no surprise that lash extensions have become increasingly popular in recent years.

But to what lengths are you willing to go for a sexy flutter like Adele or Katy Perry? Actress Kristin Chenoweth had an allergic reaction to lash glue containing formaldehyde, and she ended up with “eyelid lips.” Ouch!

Feeling a bit apprehensive about trying this beauty treatment? We asked lash expert Courtney Akai to debunk the myths of lash extensions.

What are the most common types of lash extensions?
There are three types of lash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink. Size availability ranges from 6mm to 17mm. Once selected, the lashes are applied one at a time using a specially formulated, semi-permanent glue that will not irritate the eye nor damage the natural lash. However, since allergic reactions are possible, there are different types of glue based on one’s sensitivity.

How long does it take to apply for lash extensions?
Applying a full set of lashes takes about two hours, and can be meant for and year-round with touch-ups recommended every three to four weeks. A half set of lashes is an economical alternative to achieve a similarly dramatic effect, applied as filler to thicken natural lashes or applied outward from the eye for a specialised look.

Everyone has different lashes and depending on the condition of your own natural lashes, lash experts can only go a certain length or thickness. (This is to ensure that your own lashes remain healthy.) For example, if your natural lashes are on the shorter, thinner side, you won’t be able to get a crazy, dramatic Kim Kardashian look, because it won’t last. It’s better to start out with a half set (50 to 60 percent of your top lashes) if you aren’t sure or it’s your first time. It’s easier to add more than to remove lashes!

What happens if glue gets in your eyes?
Since your eyes are shut 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. Shipping glues across the world often lead to a buildup of formaldehyde by the time they reach the salon.

Additionally, it’s important to understand the difference between an allergic reaction and an infection. A licensed and experienced lash technician will not let an infection occur, but if you’re allergic to the glue, you’re still going to be allergic — this doesn’t mean the glue is inherently harmful.

Can you go blind?
No. Your technician should be trained properly to apply the adhesive and lashes in a way that is completely harmless. Your eyes are closed the entire time of the procedure. No matter how bad an allergic reaction may get, you will never go blind. The worse case scenario is that you need to go to the eye doctor to get specific eye drops to treat an allergic reaction.

What happens when you cry?
If you experience any burning or discomfort during the procedure, causing your eyes to tear or making you cry, this is a huge red flag and you should certainly speak up. You may need to have your technician change the glue. Getting lash extensions should be a completely pain-free experience.Keep scrolling down for more lash extensions tips.

What are the pros and cons of wearing mink lashes like Beyoncé?
People want all different kinds of looks — some people go for drama, and some opt for something more natural. The benefits of mink lash extensions are that they are more feathery looking and lighter in general, so they put less pressure on your lashes. Mink lashes also come at a higher cost.

How often do you need to get lash extensions redone?
Lash extensions last through a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes, typically six to eight weeks. That said, because each person’s lash growth is somewhat variable (just hair growth), I suggest light lash maintenance every three to four weeks to maintain a full look.

Do lash extensions fall out over a certain period of time?
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.

When an inexperienced professional applies lashes, he or she often applies one synthetic lash to three to four natural lashes, causing clumps or the lash to break and fall out. In addition, your lashes might fall out if you pick at them or try to pull them out yourself, which is a big no-no. But if you avoid those two problems, your lashes should stay intact.

Can you shower or swim right away? Are there products you should absolutely avoid?
Keep water away from your lashes for the first 12 to 24 hours after application or touch-ups. Water can weaken the adhesive before it is set and cause lashes to fall off. 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 waterproof 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.

Is it okay to also wear mascara?
If you are planning to wear mascara in addition to the extensions, only use it on the tips of the extensions and with a very light hand. This will be enough to give your eyes that “pop” along with the extensions. Using mascara at the base of the extensions will get very clumpy.

Will your natural lashes get harmed or damaged?
The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. They do not. If applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes. Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes. If lashes are applied properly and to each individual lash, they won’t fall out.

What questions should you ask when searching for a reputable salon or professional?
Because of the sensitive nature of the lashes and the surrounding area, finding someone who is certified to apply the lashes is definitely a must. Professionals use professional products and have been properly trained to apply the lashes without damaging your natural lashes or more importantly, your eyes.

Just like you would with a hairstylist, research who you want to go to and how long they have been working as a technician. Look at before-and-after photos, read reviews and always make sure they are licensed and lash-certified.

What Are The Things That You Need To See Whether The Service Center Is Authentic And Right Or unprofessional And Untrained?

1. Reviews and Recommendation:

Well, there is nothing as dependable as the advice of a known person. If you know someone who has done eyelash extensions or microblogging eyebrows recently, then it is the best to ask help from them. They would be able to tell the pros and cons of the service centre. If you do not know someone who has taken this service, then the best thing that you can do is checking on the internet. Choose the one that has more good reviews and ratings.

2. License:

No business can run without a permit from the registered authority. For this reason, before you proceed, you need to know whether the company has an official work permit or not. If they can show this to you then select them. If they are unable to provide any proof of their authenticity then just walk away from them.


Price is a huge factor. There are some companies who have a very high rate, and on the other hand, some have a very low price. It is always preferable to select the company that has average fees compared to the market price. Never go for the one with the cheapest fees because these are the novices who are offering the lowest price to attract more customers and gain experience.

3. Experience:

The experience of the service centre is a crucial thing. If the service centre has a little experience or has handled 3-4 cases, then they should be avoided. Even if the previous cases were successful, it is quite clear that they do not have enough experience to handle any critical situation which may occur before, during or after the process.

These are the top ways through which you can select a good service centre for providing you services like mink lash extension, microblogging eyebrows, eyebrow threading, lash extensions etc.

Beauty Is Enhancing What You Have, Let Yourself Shine Through!

We all do not wake up in the morning with perfect eyebrows, beautifully defined lashes or natural glowing skin. However, this is now possible for you to feel beautiful and look gorgeous 24/7 without being worried about touch ups. You can slay the gym session or pool party like a boss with the semi-permanent makeup.

There are various types of semi-permanent makeup that you can do, but it is always recommended to know what you want exactly. Semi permanent makeup is a process where the highly trained beauty therapists carefully and fastidiously apply it and have an individual feeling and looking best. Hence, whether you want defined eyebrows, fuller lips or just simply hide your spots or scars, you can use the semi-permanent makeup to make yourself prettier and more attractive.

Believe it or not, fake lashes and beautifully arched eyebrows enhance the eye makeup and it definitely, makes you look more beautiful and gorgeous. False lashes or mink lash extensions have always been in style. From the 80s to the present day’s nothing can replace the importance of fake lashes. Even, if you want to add an extra spice to your everyday look, you can always add a pair of eyelashes over your real lashes to make the eye makeup pop. However, most women these days do not have the time or even patience to apply fake lashes every day. As a woman, I can assure you that, I do not get enough time to use an eyelash curler to curl my lashes. Hence, it is not a surprise that eyelash extensions have become so popular lately. Though the length of the eyelash depends on the individual, it is imperative to decide it earlier as it is a semi-permanent decision. Again, if you are bored and tired of drawing your eyebrows every day, then the solution to your problem is microblogging eyebrows. It is also a semi-permanent process, and it will save you from spending thousands of bucks on Sephora.

It is certain that you already know many service centres are providing the facilities like microblogging the eyebrows, lash extensions, mink lash extensions, eyebrow threading, etc. but how will you know they are the best in the town. Call Now 941-779-7541 You have to be very careful while selecting the place otherwise; you may end up hurting yourself badly.
