Frenquently Asked Questions
What Are Mink Eyelash Extensions?
We have always used a faux mink product. For our own personal ethical reasons, we do not use Fur from the animal Mink.
Over the years, eyelash technology has increased in sophistication and now affords people with more opportunities to look more glamorous than ever. One of the most successful products in the world of eyelash extensions is that of mink eyelashes.
Our Mink Eyelash Extensions are of such high quality that it mimics the natural hair of the Siberian Mink.
Can You Wear Mascara with Eyelash Extensions?
The simple answer is of course No.
A common reason women get eyelash extensions is to replace the job of the daily mascara ritual.
If you were to apply mascara to the entire length of the lash, this will result in increasing the weight of your lashes. And when the weight of your lashes increases, this weighs down lashes that are not fully matured, and causes damage.
How long do Eyelash Extensions Last?
This is a question we get asked all the time.
The bond is designed to last 4-5 weeks But we’ve had clients come in up to 5-7 weeks later still holding half a set.
Are Eyelash Extensions Bad For You?
At BeautifEyes we take the utmost care in protecting you from any of the known issues that could occur. We seek to vet any previous issues our new clients may have experienced previously from other salons and provide you with our expert knowledge on all aspects of eyelash extensions including the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
Medical experts have warned that the adhesives used for eyelash extensions can carry risk of allergic reaction causing swelling to the upper eyelid.
If this scenario was to occur within a 48hour period after application, we recommend that you seek professional advice from your Doctor.
Do Eyelash Extensions Ruin Or Damage Your Eyes?
Lash extensions are a popular alternative for women,
When extensions are too heavy (as in too long & too thick) for your lashes to uphold, then they can be damaged by a condition known as alopecia, in which the body cannot effectively generate hair proteins.
Many people ponder the possibility of having their eyelashes ruined through this lash extension method.
The truth is, eyelash extension application requires a Qualified Lash Artist or Lash Technician who understands how to apply Eyelash Extensions without damaging the client’s actual eyelashes.
Lash technicians that have been trained without the health and safety of the client’s eyes and lashes as a priority will simply apply eyelash extensions without the knowledge of what combinations of products are best suitable.
There are a few indications of these occurrence’s where by natural lashes are severely damaged or attachment of the eyelash extensions is uncomfortable and the Lash Artists at Beautifeyes are able to identify the triggers and outcomes of extensions that are simply too much for the natural lashes and develop an outcome that is more suitable.
Our Beautifeyes Salon hosts our sister company Lux Lash Society in training new and experienced Lash Artists. We offer training for Lash Artists who feel their training was subpar and feel they have more to learn for Quality purposes.
Are Eyelash Extensions Worth It?
For those with money the cost isn’t a problem, for those on a budget, getting eyelash extensions may not be cost effective to have the look and keep it maintained. However, it definitely is worth it to look great for that special occasion. I’d highly recommend them for that important photographic event such as weddings, engagement etc.
Eyelash Extensions retention also depends on how well you maintain your lashes, if you mistreat them then they will look worse sooner whereas if they are well looked after they can last a long time.
There is no need for mascara for eyelash extensions, no more panda-eye due to smudged mascara as you don’t need to use any and they are much better and realistic looking than strip false lashes.
For Brides, We always recommend getting a test set at least 2 months before the wedding day.
This will ensure that you won’t have any adverse reactions on the day or advise how many days before the day to have them done but also so you know if you like the set that’s been applied or if you’d prefer a fuller set like a Volume set.
Are Eyelash Extensions Safe?
When applied correctly in terms of weight that your lashes can hold, then they are safe to your lashes.
Repeated use of eyelash extensions that are too heavy (meaning too thick &/or long ) can cause a condition called traction alopecia, where the hair falls out due to tension put on the hair shaft.
This can damage the hair follicle which can slow down or is some circumstances stop the production of hair.
This can lead to a vicious cycle where women feel the need for ongoing lash extensions to boost the little natural lashes they have left resulting in even more hair loss.
If a Lash Rehab is recommended, we stock a Lash Serum to help you grow your lashes back normal if not better than original condition.
Can You Curl Eyelash Extensions?
It is highly recommended that you refrain from curling you lash extensions.
This is because an eyelash curler will prompt the lashes to come off or simply break your lashes.

How Do Eyelash Extensions Work?
Our eyelash extensions entail a meticulous, detailed process by our qualified eyelash technicians.
After applying under eye pads to cover your lower lashes, your eyelashes are then assessed for the thickness and length that they can hold.
We then begin application by isolating a single natural lash, picking an extension, dipping in the adhesive and applying to that isolated lash.
How To Care For Eyelash Extensions?
When eyelashes are applied through a meticulous process, they are done in a way that still promotes and allows lash growth. Therefore, this is not a harsh process, but rather, a gentle one that requires gentle care.
