What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extensions are a cosmetic application used to enhance your natural eyelashes. In the case of a classic eyelash extension, individual strands of lash extensions are attached on top of each of your individual natural lashes using a semi-permanent surgical glue by the technician. The extensions can be made of several materials, such as authentic mink or synthetic lashes that are made of polyester.
Like fake eyelashes, lash extensions are designed to lift and enhance the look of your natural eyelashes by adding volume to it. This can help create a transformational impact on your appearance. The main difference is that eyelash extensions can last longer than fake eyelashes. Putting on eyelash extensions also mean that you no longer require mascara. Even without mascara, with lash extensions that look surprisingly natural, you can freely enhance the length, curl, fullness, and thickness of your natural eyelashes to your heart extent.
If your lashes are applied properly to each individual lash and with proper care, they can last as long as 3 weeks and still look good. With regular fills, you can also make your last extensions to last indefinitely.
Classic vs Volume
Lash Extensions can be broadly categorised into 2 types – classic and volume. Classic eyelash extensions refer to applying 1 thicker extension to 1 natural lash, whereas volume eyelash extensions will attach 2 to 6 finer extensions to one natural lash. You can also choose a hybrid option, which is a mixture of classic and volume.
Different clients have different eyelash extension recommendations depending on how luscious their natural lashes are. If you have fewer lashes and want to cover up the gaps, volume lashes can help to enhance the fullness of your eyelashes. However, if you already have a lot of natural lashes and simply want to add more length, classic eyelash extensions will suffice, and they can even look like a volume set!

Can lash extensions cause damage to your natural eyelashes?
There is a big myth floating around that suggests that lash extensions will ruin your own natural lashes. The short answer to this myth is that they do not.
Unless you picked an uncertified technician who administered improper extension application, or if the stylist chose the wrong extensions that are unsuitable for your natural lashes, eyelash extensions should be safe and do not ruin the health of your natural lashes.
Furthermore, it takes years of improper application and care of eyelash extensions to result in long-term natural lash damage.
Therefore, it is extremely important to do proper research and look for the right technicians to help you apply lash extensions in Singapore.

About Our Lashes
How long can our lash extension last for?
It can last about 3 weeks, some even longer depending on individual lifestyle and after care. Regular combing will prevent tangle of lash and create long lasting result.
Will my eyelash extension cause my natural lash hair to shed?
No, eyelash hairs grow in a cycle that includes three phases: Growing, Resting and Shedding. It will cycle out itself every 30 to 60 days. It is normal to see lash extensions fall off together with natural lash when they shed because we attached lash fibres on it and we use high quality medical grade glue so that lash will not peel-off from natural lash and drop.
How often do I need touch-up?
Usually after about 3 weeks unless necessary. It can be earlier due to special reasons such as being under the hot weather very often or swimmers.
How long does it take to extend my eyelashes?
It will take around 1 and a half hour. Touch up session will take 30mins on average.
Can I apply mascara and eyeliner?
No. It is not needed when you have eyelash extension because your eye will be more beautiful than with Mascara applied on. It is also difficult for removal after Mascara is applied. Any other eye makeup (eg. Eye shadow or eyeliner) can be applied and wiped with cotton and eye makeup removal.
Can eyelash extension be applied to my lower lashes?
Yes, but it can only lash about 2 to 3 weeks because it tends to rub against upper eyelids.
Can I still regularly wash my face?
You may wash your face as usual and continue with your daily lifestyle (eg. Swimming or any exercises) as our eyelash extensions are waterproof and sweat proof.

Our eyelash extension techniques will not hurt. The lashes used are of top quality and are incredibly soft and light. We have an alternative of glue for clients who has sensitive eyes too.
