Rachel Grante. She is the one responsible for my latest application of Xtreme Lashes. It's been a little over a year since I last had lash extensions, so yes, I was definitely overdue! And so the procedure with Rachel began with a comprehensive questionnaire, which included questions regarding one's lifestyle, skincare regimen, desired results and most importantly, questions to ensure there are no contraindications.
The next part of the service involved cleansing and priming my natural lashes, followed by the actual application of lashes. During this process, the natural lash is isolated, followed by the coating of the lash extension base with XLFlexFusion adhesive, followed by the application of the extension one-by-one to the natural lashes. Depending on the number of lashes desired on each eye, application time can take up to two hours. I requested somewhat of a dramatic look (you can see my before and after on the Mischo Beauty Facebook fan page) and I loved the outcome!
The extensions last 4-6 weeks, with a touch-up needed usually every two weeks (your natural eyelashes shed similar to the hair on the rest of your body). I was advised to avoid water, steam, excessive heat and other activities for the first 48 hours to allow the adhesive to dry thoroughly. The lashes are gorgeous and I've received tons of compliments - and yes, that was the goal! Mission accomplished!
