Belleza Natural Eyelash Extensions

How incredible your eyelash extensions will look after leaving your treatment is 90% about how you maintain them with lash extension care.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We all know cleaning oils and bacteria off of our eyelash extensions can help them to last weeks longer, yet so many people are afraid just the opposite will happen. Every day I have lash clients tell me that they are afraid to clean their lashes, or that they feel cleaning the lashes actually makes the extensions fall off sooner. 

Like anything, confidence is key. I will in detail show you the three easy steps to maintain and clean your lash extensions. You will see that not only do they last weeks longer, they will feel softer, less itchy, and more comfortable overall. Cleaning is so important because our lashes can get bacteria, and even mites if we do not take care of them. It won't matter if your mega volume lashes are on point if you have a stye or eye infection! 

Oil is the enemy of lash extensions because it causes the adhesive to soften and clump up. So keeping natural oils from lids and fingers at bay is just as important as using oil free products near the eye area. 

You can gently pat dry with a regular towel just be careful not to pull because the lashes can sometimes get caught on towel. Just do a gently pat in this case, or use a blow of the hair dryer on a cool setting.

1. No water for 24 hours. no steam for 48 hours.

2. Avoid getting any products on the lashes that contain oil or glycol as well as saline, or salts.  If you sweat heavily rinse with water or oil free make up after your workout. Same goes for crying.  Try and use eye drops that are saline free, if you are someone who needs eye drops.

 

3. When removing your eye makeup (liner, shadow, etc.), gently go over the area with a Q Tip instead of placing cotton pads or puffs over your lids—not only could you eventually weaken the extensions and mess them up, the cotton fibers get stuck on lashes. (Not cute).

 

4. Use either water or oil free eye make up remover. Can't find oil free eye make up remover in Ibiza? I sell them so do ask!

 

5. Brush lashes regularly with a clean mascara wand. Close one eye, place the wand on top of your lashes, then roll the brush over lashes to keep them defined.

 

6. Sleep on your back. This might sound like a crazy request (unless you already sleep on your back), but it's really important directly following your application, since the glue takes a while to dry fully and you'll otherwise get weird kinks. After a night or two, resume your normal sleeping position.

 

7. Resist playing with them. Your eyelashes shed naturally, so when you have extensions, this will help push them off. If an extension looks out of place, avoid playing with it or twisting or pulling it off—you'll risk losing your natural lashes. Let them come out on their own, and use a wand to brush them back into place in the meantime.

Are you guys obsessed with lash extensions like I am ;)

How to keep your eyelash extensions clean

eyelash-extensions-ibiza

If you've had eyelash extensions before, you'll be familiar with the aftercare of not getting the lashes wet for 24 hours. But some people take this advice a little too far, and don't get them wet at all ever - gross!

Some people may notice a build up of gunk (dead skin, old make up, oils) on their lash line - then of course this needs to be cleaned. Clogged lashes can be unhygienic. Also, if the lashes are not clean when you arrive for your next lash appointment - the technician will spend more time cleaning them which eats into your precious extension application time. Dirty lashes can potentially create a shorter life of extensions as oils build up on the lashes causing them to fall out sooner.

So how should you keep your lashes clean... It's usually ok to clean the lashes just with water. Oil free eye make up remover is great to remove make up also. Just be sure to not use cotton wall buds or face wipes - the fibres will pull at the eyelash extensions. Also face wipes are full of oils. I recommend using a Q Tip (ear bud) that's damp with water, and gently stroke along the lash line.

It could be useful to use baby shampoo and lukewarm water if you notice you need to clean your lash line more thoroughly. With your finger tips, work the foam right into the lash line, rinse, pat dry and allow your lashes to dry naturally. 

All these methods can be incorporated into your daily skincare routing. If you're in the shower, try to avoid putting your face directly under the shower stream.

Clean your lashes every day or every second day, and be sure they're squeaky clean before your next lash appointment. Simple and quick ways to keep those lashes healthy and the eyelash extensions lasting for longer.

Booking Policy

 

When booking an appointment, we will require your full name and contact number. For new lash extension sets, or brows, please arrive on time (allow sufficient time for parking). Please do not bring friends or children with you to your appointments.

 

Cancellation Policy

If you have to cancel or change your appointment, please do so ASAP. We need at least 24 hours notice. This ensures that we can offer your appointment time to somebody else.

Failure to give us less than 24 hours notice of a cancellation or reschedule will result in a 50& upfront payment for your next infill.

We also send a confirmation text and/or email the day prior to your booking. If we do not receive a confirmation from you the day of your appointment, your slot may be given to another client.

Arriving Late

Your appointment time is meant especially for you. If you are late, we may have to cut your treatment short so it does not affect the next client.

Remove make up

For lash extension services, please remove all eye makeup with an oil-free remover or mild soap prior to your appointment.

Don’t come sick

Because your lash artist is so close to your face throughout the lashing process, avoid coming in with a raging illness. If you cancel and reschedule in time, your lash artist will understand. If it’s absolutely necessary to get your lashes done, wear a medical mask to stop germs from spreading.

Shower before

Not only does showering before your lash appointment ensure that you smell super fresh while in proximity with your lash artist, it shows you can follow the after-care instructions. Any lash die-hard knows how critical it is not to get your extensions wet after application. It will make your lashes last longer and show your lash artist you really appreciate their work.

Communicate

Your lash artists won’t be able to achieve your dream lashes unless you tell them what you’re envisioning! Tell them if your prefer long, short, full or natural lashes. Make sure to listen to their opinion as well. They are the experts and will know if a desired look is damaging to your lashes.

 

    The Do's and Dont's of Eyelash Extensions

    Belleza Natural believes that there’s more to eyelash extensions than just application, which is why I've created this blog to explore the ‘Do’s & Dont’s of Lash Extensions”. Proper care is essential for healthy eyelash extensions. With proper care, you can prolong the life of your lashes, maintain proper hygiene, and keep your beautiful lashes healthy.

    After you get your lashes done, follow these steps to keep lashes healthy:

    DO – Cleanse lashes daily using an extension safe cleanser

    DO – Use a clean mascara wand to comb through and groom lashes daily

    DO – Use oil free cosmetics and face wash to avoid breaking down bonds

    DO – Use extension safe mascaras

    DO – Follow advice of lash artist or professional esthetician

    To maintain the utmost health and integrity of lashes, we recommend avoiding the following:

    DON’T – Get lashes wet within 24-48 hours of application

    DON’T – Come in contact with heat sources such as saunas, fires or BBQ’s

    DON’T – Pull or twist lashes.  This can cause your natural lash to fall out

    DON’T – Use heated curlers on synthetic lashes, this can cause melting

    DON’T – Forget to remove make-up or skin oil residue daily

    DON’T – Remove eyelash extensions yourself

    DON’T – Attempt to apply lashes on yourself

    Eyelash Extensions: How to make them last

    1. Arrive to the appointment with clean eyes. Be sure that your lashes are free of any makeup and/or oily residue. Not only does this speed up the application time, the adhesive will stick better to clean lashes.

    2. This means shower before your appointment and/or wash your hair & body separately.

    3. For 48 hours after your application, you should avoid steam. No saunas, hot yoga, sweaty gym sessions, etc.

    4. Make sure the products you use are all oil free. Oils in your makeup remover, skin care products, makeup, etc will breakdown the adhesive on your lashes. Ask Belleza Natural for recommended products.

    5. Where no mascara on your extensions! It becomes very difficult to remove the mascara from the extensions.

    6. Do not pull or tug on your lashes. If they're criss-crossing, use a disposable mascara wand to comb through your lashes, root to end.

    7. Less is more. The less eye makeup you wear, the less your play with your lashes, the longer they will last.

    4 different types of Eyelash Extensions.... The ugly, the bad, the good, and the luxurious.

    Eyelash-Extensions-Ibiza

    The good, the bad and the ugly!

    There are 4 different types of Eyelash Extensions available on the market – choose yours wisely!

    Strip lashes

    Cluster lashes

    Single lashes

    Volume lashes

    Strip Lashes

    Eyelash-Extensions-Ibiza

    Strip lashes are also referred to as Party lashes. These strips are applied using a latex / rubbery glue that will only secure the lashes in place for one night/event. Sometimes the strips can even come loose while you are still out and about. These lashes hardly ever look natural and your own lashes are visible underneath. Clients can buy this at their local beauty store / pharmacy and apply themselves. This is the worst option when it comes to Eyelash Extensions but luckily they do not damage your natural lashes as they are removed the same / following day. These can be classified as ‘the ugly’.

     

    Cluster Lashes

    Eyelash-Extensions-Ibiza

    Run! Very far away! If someone offers you this service it is very clear that they have a very small background on eyelash extensions. These lashes can be extremely dangerous when used in conjunction with a professional adhesive. What makes them so bad? Well, everything! First of all the weight of one cluster is simply too heavy for your natural lashes. Because they are so thick and clumpy they suck up a tremendous amount of adhesive which is simply not necessary. Less is more! The most dangerous part is that they are applied onto 3-5 natural lashes and therefore they deter natural lash growth and pull out your lashes.  These are definitely classified as ‘the bad’.

    Single Lashes

    Eyelash-Extensions-Ibiza

    Ah, the good old single lashes. These lashes come in a variety of lengths, curls and thicknesses to enhance your natural beauty. Each lash is applied individually onto one of your natural lashes and therefore will not cause any damage if correctly applied. Your natural lash will shed with the extension still attached and a new lash will grow in its place. Touch ups are required every 2-3 weeks. These are the ‘good’ lashes.

     

    Volume Lashes

    Eyelash-Extensions-Ibiza

    The Rolls Royce of Eyelash Extensions! Clients are constantly demanding fuller and more dramatic lashes and there is now a safe way to make this possible! Using super fine lashes we pick up 2-6 individual lashes and spread them into a fan (NOT a cluster). This fan will always be lighter or equal to the weight of one Single lash. One fan is applied to one natural lash and will not cause any lash damage if correctly applied. Touch ups are required every 2-4 weeks. 

    Holiday Eyelash Extensions - how can you make them last?

    When the margaritas are flowing in Ibiza or on holiday, don't forget to follow Belleza Natural's lash care advice.

    • Leave the lashes alone for 24hrs. This will allow the bond to reach it's full strength.
    • Swimming is fine, but very heavily chlorinated water may weaken the glue bond.

    • Carefully towel dry after swimming, gently dab the eye area. The natural lashes will absorb water and need to dry thoroughly to reach full strength again.

    • Tanning oil and oily sun screen will take lashes straight off, it's the most common cause of holiday lash loss. Be aware of touching or wiping eyes with hands that have been applying oil.
