In our perfect world, we would wake up looking exactly how we did the day before. And then, our prayers were answered. Eyelash extensions are for those who have ever dreamt of waking up with Kardashian worthy lashes, without the dregs of last night’s make-up. Curious? So were we.

Plus, your eyelash extension experience is as versatile as your lifestyle. If you want something more day to day, play with a natural curl. If you are feeling fancy, amp up the volume with a lush length and a dramatic curl. There are three choices to make when you get lash extensions. First you choose the density – opting for more lashes creates a fuller look. Then you pick the type of curl, which ranges from a kitten-ish J curl to a gravity-defying C curl. Finally, you pick the length – mix and match this up. Most people find that sweet spot between 10 cm – 12 cm. You do you.
There are few ground rules to keep your eyelashes looking as fine as the day you got them. Firstly, do not get them wet within the first 24 hours. They can weaken the adhesive. After that, you can swim til your heart’s content. Told you they were versatile. Use oil-free products near your eyes, and comb them every day with a clean spooley brush. Try not to sleep on your side if you can help it. By reducing the wear and tear on your lashes, they can last up to five or six weeks.
Before you embark on your lash journey, we must warn you that they can be addictive. However, we can definitely think of worse things than waking up looking picture perfect. Book an appointment with one of our Bookwell lash technicians today.
