FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long do eyelash extensions last?
The life of your natural lash. However Vanity Lashes recommend getting a refill every 2-4 weeks to keep them looking nice and full.
What do they feel like to wear them?
They feel very light, so you can’t feel them. Most clients tell us they are wearing less makeup since having our eyelash extensions applied. You will leave us having no lashes clumped together.
How long do they take to apply?
Approximately 1-3 hours depending on the amount of lashes required and treatment booked.
Vanity Luxe Lashes have applied 1000’s of full eyelash extension sets, so we are very efficient. Most of our sets take 60-100 minutes.
Can I use eye make up remover to clean them?
Only water based remover or cleanser may be used but we recommend using our lash shampoo to keep your lashes healthy and clean.
Can I wear mascara on my lash extensions?
Vanity Luxe Lashes do not recommend wearing mascara as it reduces the life of your eyelash extensions.
How do I maintain my lash extensions and ensure I get the most out of them?
Vanity Luxe Lashes recommend that you lightly brush your eyelash extensions after washing your face to ensure they remain straight and in line with your natural lashes. You will be shown how to wash and care for them at your appointment. We recommend refills every 2-3 weeks.
How long do refills take?
Approximately 45-75 minutes depending on the amount of lashes required and particular set you have. We offer mini refills for those clients who up keep their lashes regularly and only need a small frequent top up, however we recommend clients select the refill option that best suits their lash refill needs to ensure they get the most out of their appointment.
When can I not have eyelash extensions applied?
If you have any eye irritations or infections or experience allergies pertaining to products being applied to your skin or hair.
What is the recommended aftercare for my lash extensions?
Keep your lashes dry for at least 7 hours (24 hours is ideal).
No swimming, steam rooms or saunas for 48 hours. Use only water based makeup removers and cleansers, preferably a lash shampoo, (Oily/cream based products will shorten the life of your eyelash extensions). No waterproof mascara.
No eyelash curlers on your eyelash extensions. Avoid rubbing, touching and playing with your eyelash extensions (This can become addictive, so just don’t even go there!).
Use a foaming cleanser on your lashes at least every other day (We’ll show you how it’s done). We sell lash cleanser in salon for your convenience.
Use a tissue to blot dry lashes after washing your face. Don’t forget to pre-book your next eyelash refill at 2 – 4 week intervals in order to maintain the fullness of your eyelash extensions (We recommend 3 weeks for most clients).
Please remove all eye makeup prior to your appointment, to ensure you receive the most out of your treatment time.
Contact lenses cannot be worn during the treatment, as your eyes will be closed while the eyelash extensions are being applied and the adhesive fumes may cause irritation.
Avoid using waterproof mascara for at least 3 days prior (that stuff can be like cement to get off).
