Semi-permanent eyelash extensions are a year-round MUST HAVE for the fashion conscious! Eyelash extensions draw more attention to your eyes than mascara alone. So you’ll look great when you wake up, after your workout, in the office, on the beach. Just beauty around 24/7!

Individually applied, we’ll frame your eyes with a long, high quality synthetic or mink lash directly onto your natural lashes to enhance and extend. Our eyelash artists create a glamorous look, using a variety of extensions to build the right volume, length and curl for your unique style.

What’s the difference between ‘Eyelash Extensions’ and ‘Individual Cluster lashes’?

Lash extensions are individual strands, curled like natural lashes. Individual Cluster lashes are made up of 3 strands fanning out from a “bulb” glued on to your natural lashes. You’ll likely find cheaper rates for cluster lashes – and if you see them applied, you’ll know why… they are heavy, uncomfortable, do not last and do damage to your natural lashes.

How long will my eyelash extensions last?

With proper care, your extensions will last 4-5 weeks. You should expect to shed most of them throughout the growth cycle of your natural lashes. We recommend coming in for touch ups every 2-3 weeks. This is when your extensions begin to look sparse and shed.

Will eyelash extensions damage my own lashes?

No, regularly applying eyelash extensions will not damage your natural lashes. Wearing Strip lashes and Individual Cluster lashes will damage your own natural lashes.

Will it hurt?

No! When properly applied, eyelash extensions should NEVER hurt! Extensions are applied to your natural lashes, not touching the skin, so you shouldn’t feel a thing. With your eyes closed, you may even find the treatment relaxing and fall asleep.

How should I expect my extensions to feel?

You should not feel any pain or discomfort in or around your eyes after the procedure.

How long does it take?

We’re perfectionists here at The MakeUp Lounge. You can expect us to be meticulous, concentrated and precise. From consultation through application, the process will last approximately 45-120 minutes depending on the desired set and the type of appointment you have.

My lashes are sparse/short/fine/curly – will that be a problem?

Most clients are good candidates for lash extensions, no matter what their concerns. However, the style our artists will help you create may vary depending on your natural lashes. If you’re really concerned, consider a free consultation with one of our technicians to discuss a design that best suits your lashes prior to making an appointment for application.

Help! I got eyelash extensions from another studio and I‘m in pain/they look terrible/I just need to get them removed.

Here at The MakeUp Lounge we will happily remove your old lash extensions. We’ve rectified work by other studios many times. If you wish, apply can apply a new set.

Can I still use mascara over my extensions?

Most clients don’t find it necessary to wear mascara with eyelash extensions. However, if you must wear mascara, we advise using a water-based formula. Do not use oil based mascara it will shorten the life of your lashes and ONLY apply it to the tips of your eyelash extensions.

Can I have extensions applied to my bottom lashes?

Yes you may but we don’t recommend it.  Eyelash extensions generally will not last more than a few days on bottom lashes.  When your eyes water it effects the adhesive and the extensions will loosen and fall off.
