What eyelash extensions for me?
Everyone can get eyelash extensions, there is no contraindication because "The glue never touches the eyelid"explains Maria Kulvja, head of institutes Mary's Eyelashes. "The only condition is that the client has a eyelash fringe on which you can stick the extensions ".
Choose the right method
There are two major types of pose : the classic pose eyelash and the Russian volume. As part of the first method, an extension of about 0.15 mm thick is stuck on each of your eyelashes. According to the expert, "It's ideal for the first time, the result is ultra glamorous and natural". Count one hour session for about 200 euros.
Looking for a more look sophisticated and more provided? The Russian volume pose is for you. "We have more freedom, we create fans with 2 to 6 false eyelashes depending on the desired result, that we stick to one of your real eyelashes", details Maria Kulvja. These extensions are more numerous, but also finer (0.05 mm and 0.07 mm thick) than those used for conventional laying. But "handcrafted and personalized work " has a cost: around 300 euros about two hours of work.
Whatever the chosen technique, the expert advises to come and make a filling every month to replace the extensions that have fallen "It takes an hour and costs between 90 and 110 euros".
Opt for good form
"We consider the morphology of the face and the shape of the eye to determine the type of extension that we will ask "explains the professional. For her, it's the Russian volume method that "Offers the most opportunities" because she can "Draw attention to a particular place".
If your eyes are almond, she advises against the shape "Doe eye" which involves asking longer eyelashes at the outer end of the eye. "This will lengthen even more the look and may close it, " She says. This form is recommended for round and large eyes. The almond eyes will be highlighted with longer eyelashes at the level of middle of the eyelid. Same for small eyes: "You have to put volume in the center and especially do not add too much length to stay natural".
Maintain your extensions
Once the installation of your choice is complete, it is necessary to maintain your eyelashes to stay intact for as long as possible. "The use of mascara is not recommended because of the cleansing that will damage the glue points ", warns Maria Kulvja, "If the pose is well done, you will not need to mascara". Avoid fat products flush like the liner or the Khôl, but also in the context of make-up removal (two-phase treatment, oil ...).
Other advice: brush every day your eyelash bangs with a bottle brush and wash them if possible with a special shampoo.
