Today Dionne shares some beauty tips with us:
How did you get started in lash extensions?
I got started with Lash extensions on myself because I wanted to be cute…during my modeling/Acting days. At the time of this business of Polaroids. I wanted my Polaroids to be really nice. So I started cutting up strip lashes and buying single hair lashes to apply onto myself to give me a sharper, define eye look.
What is the most popular look for lashes?
Of course everyone wants big luscious lashes. and most want that Kim K look of lashes. However, the most popular look that most want is, their eyes to be bigger, wider and uplifting with lush lashes that cascading up over the eyelid.
What is the difference between silk and mink lashes?
The difference between silk and mink lashes are really none. This has been a buzz word to professionals being sold lashes. You wouldn’t want DNA on your eyes, causing allergic reactions from dander. It’s just a softer, think silk fiber cut to emulate a “Mink hair. The branded buzz word of mink is not real mink. I’m against any animals being harmed to use any of those materials on myself let along my clients/Lashettes.
Can you wear mascara on your eyelash extensions?
I suggest no mascara when wearing eyelash extensions. Most mascara have oil and conditioners in them, which makes eye tensions clumpy or have oil in most which over a short time will make eyelash extension slide off over time. The whole purpose of wearing Eyelash Extensions is to illuminate the sole purpose of waking up, looking polished with out the time and mess of mascara. That’s the beauty of wearing Extensions.
How can I take care of my lash extensions?
There are several ways to take care of your eyelash extensions, however the best way is to take care of your extension is to be gentle with them. since it is tiny, gentle natural hairs on your eyelashes with a silk fiber attached. You can use baby shampoo to wash gently over them. or wash gently around your lashes. in the shower, you can allow water to run all dirt and dust throughout your extensions. but be careful not to have heavy steam and oil on them, which over time they’ll start losing up and falling off.
Can you remove your lash extensions yourself?
You can remove your own lash extensions. However, I suggest a professional to remove your extensions with a lash remover gently off your natural lashes, to ensure proper removal. lots of oil overnight in a hot steamy shower can properly remove your lashes overnight.
