I have never really considered going for eyelash extensions because it is pretty easy to work with my natural lashes. I mostly use a lengthening mascara (as opposed to thickening, because I feel that lashes become thicker when you apply enough layers anyway) or I use falsies when I need to be more dramatic.
The convenience of eyebrow embroidery however, gave me that extra push to try out eyelash extensions – it’ll be great if my face can be ready to go when I wake up, perhaps even before I am.
At Browtisan, I was attended by Coco for the preparation work and her staff took over during the actual extension. Coco cleaned my lashes and prepped it by curling them, so that the effect of my extension lashes would be even better.
My lower lashes was then taped to prevent them from being accidentally glued to the top lashes in the process and my eyelids were taped as well to push my eyelids away from my top lashes.
During the extension process, I asked them how long extensions normally lasts. The answer was 2 to 4 weeks, depending on an individual’s lashes. I have quite a lot of lashes and they are quite long but, they are very straight, brittle and tend to fall off easily hence I was told that mine wouldn’t last that long. In the end, they lasted slightly more than 2 weeks, which I thought was good for the condition of my natural lashes and considering that I rub my eyes very often.s
Below are photos of my eyes after lash extensions. Notice my red eyes? It is partly because I was sick and partly because I kept opening my eyes to take photos and take an urgent call while doing my extensions. I got reprimanded jokingly by the lash specialist for doing that, so if you go, just remember to take a real break and not open your eyes.
Eyelash extensions at Browtisan are done strand by strand. Each fibre lash is painstakingly attached to one of your real lash with glue to achieve the most natural effect. How thick you can go depends on how many natural lashes you have. I thought mine turned out really lush and beautiful.
Here’s a selfie with Cherie, who went with me and also got eyelash extensions done. The best thing about eyebrow embroidery and eyelash extensions is that you look well groomed anytime, you can’t really tell that I was terribly sick – the power of well groomed brows and lashes!
I was not quite used to the feeling of having eyelash extensions and I thought I wouldn’t miss them when they drop off naturally. I was wrong, because I kept reading online reviews of eyelash extension services when my extensions were gone so I guess this won’t be the last time. My experience with Browtisan was positive but I want to try out a few lash services before I decide whether I want to do this frequently or if I’ll be sticking with Browtisan.
Pricing for eyelash extensions by Browtisan starts from $98 – $168. If you have more natural lashes, it needs more work and more fibre lashes need to be used hence, the price increases accordingly. From now to June 2015, you can quote my name or blog (Estella or So Oddly Dreamlike) when you book an appointment to enjoy a 10% discount.
