Lash Extension DOs & DON’Ts

Lash Extension DOs & DON’Ts

20 Jan

Just a few friendly reminders on how to best care for your gorgeous eyelash extensions, my lovelies!

Lash Boutique DON’Ts — please DO NOT:

  • Pick or pull at your lashes
  • Excessively rub your eyes, as this will pull off the extensions prematurely
  • Use a harsh eyelash curler, as this will break the synthetic lashes
  • Apply mascara to the base of the lashes; only on the lash tips
  • Use oil-based products; doing so will dissolve the bond
  • Use cotton balls or swabs directly on the extensions, as fibers can get caught in the bond
  • Overexpose lashes to steam rooms and/or tanning salons, as they can weaken the bond

Lash Boutique DOs — please DO:

  • Brush your lashes daily to create a dramatic, fanned-out look (when brushing, brush from the middle of the lash to the tip)
  • Use the Xtreme Lashes Heated Eyelash Curler (sold here) to help lift and curl your lashes without damaging your extensions
  • Close your eyes and press lashes with a bath towel or paper towel when they get wet; this will remove excess water without weakening the bond
  • Wash around your eyes first when washing your face; when removing eye makeup, use a Q-tip and our formulated eye makeup remover
  • Use products specially formulated for synthetic eyelash extensions

If you ever have questions, feel free to contact me at 347.417.6004 or appointments@lashboutique.com. Photo courtesy of weheartit.com.

Lash Boutique Update

Hey lovies! Lots of exciting things coming soon to Lash Boutique. I’ve been busy shuttling between New York and Paris — hoping to start another Lash Boutique studio there in the coming months. Oui, oui, c’est vrai! SO excited. But don’t worry, I’ll be back in New York so often, you won’t even know I’m gone. Also busy working on a LashBoutique.com re-launch, as well as new business ideas and options for my clients. Change is good! 

Product Review: GlideLiner Eye Pencil

27 Jul

As you may know, I’m a HUGE fan of the GlideLiner Eye Pencil by Xtreme Lashes. This long-lasting eyeliner is amazing because it combines the benefits of a liquid liner with the ease of a traditional pencil. The innovative gel structure glides on gently and smoothly, allowing you to achieve a precise, defined line or a smudged, smoky look — the choice is yours and is a great way to make your eyes pop when you need a little something extra. While the liner is specially formulated for use with eyelash extensions (it doesn’t tug or pull at your lashes), it can also be worn with natural lashes. I wear it all the time! You can purchase the GlideLiner Eye  Pencil in my studio for $29, available in Black. You can also order the liner in more colors off of the Xtreme Lashes website — Black Pearl, Graphite, Xtreme Black, Golden Olive, Midnight Blue, Plum and Xpresso.

I Am Style-ish Lash Extension Review

6 Jul

Check out this review on the lash extension application process that I just came across on iamstyle-ish.com. Note that this is not one of my clients; I just admired the blogger’s review on the extension procedure. The blogger makes many good points, including the fact that it is much better to pay a bit more to see an experienced, licensed lash stylist than to save a few dollars and run the risk of ruining your gorgeous lashes! Book your appointment with Lash Boutique now by calling 347.417.6004 or email appointments@lashboutique.com.

Lash Boutique For Charity

30 Jun

When one of my clients, Tina, approached me about donating to a cause that is near and dear to her heart, of course I wanted to help! Tina told me that she lost her mother to cancer 12 years ago and has spent the past few years volunteering for the Relay For Life of Hoboken, NJ, which is a national fundraiser benefiting the American Cancer Society. Many of my clients are chemotherapy patients who have not only lost their hair, but they have lost their eyelashes and eyebrows, as well. So I was honored to donate a full set of eyelash extensions, valued at $300, to their Silent Auction fundraiser at Hoboken’s W Hotel. The event was held last week and raised nearly $3,000 in the fight against cancer. Big congrats to Hoboken’s Relay For Life! Thank you for letting me be a part of such a wonderful cause. xx

Want Curves?

25 Jun

Looking for something a little different in regards to your lash extensions? As you may know, I offer three different lash sets here at Lash Boutique — Natural, Gorgeous and Dramatic, all depending on how many lashes you would like applied to each eye. But what you may not know is that I offer varying lash curves as well, depending on how bold you want your lashes to look. Xtreme Lashes just recently launched their X35 lash, which is in between the X30 (a more natural curve) and X40 (more dramatic). I can’t wait to try it!

Lash Boutique Reviews

23 Jun

I’m certainly not one to brag, but I’m loving these reviews on Citysearch and Yelp! I have the best clients ever, thank you for all the kind words. If you’re thrilled with your lash extensions, I encourage you to leave a review telling others about your experience on Yelp, Citysearch or even on our Lash Boutique Facebook page. xx
