They can open up your eyes, make you look like you’re wearing makeup without having to spend the extra time in the morning, and can give you a much-needed confidence boost. Contact us today at A Younger You located in Burlington, WI, and ask us about how you can make these eyelash extensions a part of your life.
How Long Do Eyelash Extensions Last?
Before you decide to commit to eyelash extensions, you may be wondering how long they last. With the proper care, your eyelash extensions may last as long as four weeks, but it’s typically recommended that you come in for maintenance anywhere from two to three weeks after your initial appointment. There’s no rule about when you should schedule your lash upkeep appointments, but we can help you determine the best schedule based on your lashes.
What Are Borboleta Eyelash Extensions?
At A Younger You, we’ve partnered with Borboleta Eye Lash Extensions and are proud to offer these beautiful, high-quality lashes to our clientele. Our goal is to help you look and feel as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside, and these eyelashes will do just that.
Borboleta has created eyelashes that have become the gold standard in the beauty industry. As a bonus, the company embraces diversity when it comes to beauty, and its selection of eyelashes reflects that. You are unique and when it comes to your lashes, your desired look may be different from that of someone else’s.
These lashes are completely customizable. Made of faux mink, they come in different lengths so that you can choose your perfect length, quantity, and even the type of curl you want for your lashes. Whether you want a dramatic look or a simple look that subtly enhances your features, we can help you customize your lashes to the exact look that you want.
The Benefits of Eyelash Extensions
No More Mascara
Finding the perfect mascara is nearly impossible, and once you take the step to invest in these natural-looking eyelashes, you can end your search for good. You’ll have full, beautiful lashes that will look natural, never clumpy or spider-like.
You Can Get Ready Faster
These eyelashes brighten up your face and make you appear as though you got ready for the day, even if you literally just got out of bed. You won’t need makeup remover to get mascara off your lashes each day, and you can get away with wearing less makeup if you want as well. You can also dress them up when you’re in the mood for more makeup, but you won’t have to waste time priming, curling, and applying mascara to your lashes.
No More Messy Fake Eyelashes
Trying to apply false eyelashes takes a lot of skill, and for even the skilled it can take quite a bit of time. This skill can be difficult to perfect, and you may have to sacrifice your eye makeup in the process. Once you invest in these extensions, you won’t have to mess with eyelash glue or fake lashes. Your extensions will be enhanced versions of your natural lashes and you won’t have to worry about putting them on and taking them off each day.
How to Prepare for Your Eyelash Appointment
To get the most out of your appointment, there are some things that you should know ahead of time and ways that you can prepare for your appointment so that it goes as smoothly as possible.
Don’t Wear Makeup
Before you show up for your appointment, make sure that you don’t apply any makeup to your eye area. The area should be clean, free of any eyeshadow, mascara, and even under-eye concealer. Wearing a moisturizer or sunscreen on your face is fine, but avoid your eye area during application.
Plan Your Day Accordingly
Your first appointment will take the longest since you’ll be establishing your base set of lashes from scratch. This appointment typically takes two and a half hours total. When you schedule your appointment, be sure to block out this time on your calendar. Maintenance appointments following your initial visit will be much shorter and will take approximately one hour.
Sit Back and Relax
Don’t worry about trying to stay awake or about having something to keep you busy because you will be keeping your eyes shut during the appointment. It will probably be the most relaxing two and a half hours of your week. And, it’s perfectly fine with us if you want to use the time to catch up on your beauty sleep because when you wake up, you’ll have beautiful eyelashes.
How To Make Your New Extensions Last Longer
When you take care of your eyelash extensions, you will get the most and longest wear out of them. We will give you a full list of aftercare instructions at the end of your appointment, but one way to make your lashes last longer is to wash them twice a day. We recommend the Borboleta Lash Bath, a cleanser that is safe for your lashes. Using this cleanser twice a day will:
- Help your lashes last as long as possible
- Keep them looking fresh
- Help prevent eye irritations
- Prevent the spread of bacteria around your eyes and lashes
