This is Part 1 of my fireplace makeover! If I had my way I would have covered the fireplace completely! In the perfect world I wouldn't have a budget and the sky would be the limit- with that being said I am on a budget for a couple reasons! First, we don't want to get in over our heads and not get the return when we sell our house and second, we live on a medical residents salary which means we are poor! Hahaha
I was hoping to get that Old Chicago look and I'm about there! I want to add in a little more white so stay posted for my finished fireplace!
Ever considered eyelash extensions? Wonder if they are worth the cost and maintenance? Here is everything you have ever wanted to know about "lashing".
What exactly are eyelash extensions? Eyelash extensions are applied to your real eyelashes to enhance the length and thickness.
What are the extensions made out of? The extensions can either be real mink hair or a synthetic faux mink material. (My personal favorite is the faux mink. I have found that the real mink is too soft, can crinkle, and doesn't give a dramatic enough look....also real mink lashes are spendier than the faux mink.)
How are the extensions applied? Traditional lash extensions are applied to each individual eyelash. This means that the technician applies one fake eyelash to each of your individual real lashes.
How long does a traditional set take to apply? When a technician first starts out, it may take a few hours to do a set....however, an experienced technician can apply a full set in 1-1 1/2 hours.
What is a fill? A fill is when technician "fills" the lashes that have fallen off since the initial first set was done. When a client comes to me for a fill, I take off any lashes that are grown out or turning "funny". The process I use does not remove your real eyelash and protects the integrity of it so we can add a brand new extension to the lash. Fills take 30 min- 1 hr to do depending on how well the client has retained/taken care of their lash extensions. When you leave your lash fill appointment, your lashes should look just like the brand new set you originally got done.
How often will I need a fill? Average time is 3 weeks. With that being said, some prefer to go longer, others prefer to fill more frequently. This truly all depends on how well you (the client) take care of the extensions. ***Disclaimer- the only exception to this rule I have seen is my sister and a few other clients ;) who have more "oily" skin. Their lashes just can't seem to stay on.
Who applies lash extensions? A licensed professional! Never ever let ANYONE do your lashes that is not licensed/certified.
How do I wash my face and makeup off? Most cleansers WITHOUT oil are okay to use on your face and eyelids....however, my clients prefer makeup removing wipes. You should use great caution when washing your face and showering with eyelash extensions.
Can i still wear makeup? Yes! You can still wear makeup (some clients feel that they can get away with less makeup as the extensions give a nice dramatic look). It is advised that you don't wear mascara with the extensions. Mascara can make the lash extensions fall off faster.
