In this video, Sylvia, demonstrates how to keep your extensions clean.
Yes, having them applied on the lower lashes is not only beautiful and complimentary, they complete your look. If your lash artist is gifted your extensions may appear much more realistic since your lower lashes will also be a bit longer and fuller. Having extensions on the upper and lower lashes at the same time adds symmetry, and no one will be the wiser that your extensions are not really yours. Lower lashes are an add-on service, the cost depends on the lash artist. The design can be short, wispy, cat eye, symmetrical, staggered lengths, long and dramatic, or something more natural. It just depends on the length and style of your natural lashes and the look that you want. You never have to worry about raccoon eyes because there is no need for mascara on the bottom eyelashes.
When Sylvia started adding extensions to the lower/bottom lashes, neither Sylvia or Mea were aware of anyone else doing it. She had to create a technique to apply them effectively and in a timely manner that is comfortable for her clients. We are still not aware of many lash artists, in our area, that are applying them to the bottom lashes even though they make such a difference to the overall look..
Lower lashes typically start upwards from $35 for new lashes and fills, but it depends on the type of lashes, the time needed to apply them, and the number of lashes. Bottom lashes take approximately 30 to 45 minutes and about 20 to 30 minutes for fills.
According to the article - http://neriumsupport.com/downloads/Shape_October2016.pdf goggles may leave the eyes looking puffy or swollen and, in some cases, can cause bruising. Dermatologist S. Manjula Jegasothy, M.D. in Miami advises that the suction in swimming goggles may also cause laxity of the eye-lids, and the pull from the goggle straps may be considered harsh on ones’ eyelids, which may cause capillary breakage, dark circles, deep lines and loose skin.
We personally stopped using googles because when the seal breaks (and it does as you try to adjust the straps to wash your hair and face), then you end up getting your extensions wet, anyway. The goggles also fog up and will bend your extensions which can cause them to loosen or break. It is also difficult to wash your hair, and full face with goggles and they are not comfortable. Our suggestion is to wait 24 to 48 hours following your full set or re-lash appointment to shower.
As of this writing we have a patent pending tool to protect your eyelash extensions that we are working on getting to market. Having our tool will allow you to do everything you are not supposed to do, including shower immediately following your extension appointment. The protective cover will protect your extensions from water, steam and heat, and increase the longevity of your extensions, so you can wait longer between fills.
