If you have questions about anything related to beauty products, they can help!  All three of them has tried my lashes, so they can tell you how beautiful and comfortable the lashes are.

If you wear mascaras anyway...😅

I am not going to suddenly recommend wearing mascara on your eyelash extensions, but, if you are going to wear them anyway, I would like to recommend one product.  They are called "Blinc" mascaras.  I used to wear them long time ago and what's really good about it is that it won't smudge and give you panda eyes.  Unlike other mascaras, they don't contain oil or tar, and  it only forms a soft plastic tube around the lashes, which easily slides off with warm soapy water.    I still recommend that you don't wear any mascaras, but if you do wear mascaras anyway with your eyelash extensions, use this one instead of other mascaras that build up on your lashes.  Please  remember to stop wearing them a few days prior to your refill appointments.   Blinc mascaras are sold at Planet Beauty @ the Irvine Spectrum where I have my little shop for my services!!

Hello Kitty Cafe @ the Irvine Spectrum

Today at the Irvine Spectrum, Hello kitty Cafe was there!!  One of my client told me about it so I decided to go and see if I can get something for my daughter who was home recovering from a cold.  As I walked toward the giant wheel court, I instantly knew I won't be able to get her a souvenir because I saw an extremely long line!!  Lol.  I didn't have time to line up for that long so I just took some pictures!  Their hours were 10am to 8pm.   At the cafe, they were selling cookies, donuts macarons, and cakes.  They were also giving out free tote bags for food purchases over $25 or more while supplies last.

Lashes facing different directions

Your lashes are just like your hair.  You wake up in the morning, and your hair is messed up, so you wet it and style it the way you like.  Same with your lashes.  Sometimes in the morning, you find a lash or two that just don't seem to face the right way.  If you take shower in the morning, great!  After the shower, just use the mascara wand given to you at your appointment, and brush it to make it look nice.  If you don't shower in the morning, just wet it slightly before brushing, and you are all set.  If there are still some that aren't behaving, they may have grown out away from your roots, and you may be due for touch up appointment.    enjoy your lashes!!!

Preparing for your appointment

It is best to come in for your appointments with no make up for best results.  That includes eyeliners eye shadows and of course mascara.   If you have even the slightest traces of make up or mascara, the eyelash extensions will not adhere correctly, and result in premature fallout.  Also, if the technician spends too much time trying to remove your makeup and mascara, you will not have enough time to have your lashes done, and you will end up paying for a very expensive cleansing session!     Please remember to stop wearing mascara 4 days prior to your appointment, as removing them the day before is almost always not enough.  And needless to say, it is best to wear no mascara at all for the life of your extensions!!
