Hello my Littlefinders, I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter Sunday. Today I want to talk to you about one of the current and biggest beauty trends. Eye Lash Extensions.I had been contemplating getting them for a while but I had a lot of questions. Would the process be painful? Would they look natural? What about maintenance? When my good friend Katie from Just Blow It got them done at VAMPD, I knew I needed those babies in my life. I’ve now had my Eyelash extensions for a week and I am in love with them. In this post, I will be walking you through the process of getting them and all the details you should know about keeping them looking beautiful.
I visited VAMPD in Waterford Lakes and had my appointment with the lovely Alessandra. Do make an appointment for a full set and be prepared to be there for 90 minutes to two hours. Trust me is worth it.
As soon as I walked in Alessandra was ready for me, and the whole team at VAMPD was so nice and welcoming. One thing I didn’t do prior to my appointment, was looked at a picture of what I wanted. I guess I just assumed all extensions are the same, but I was wrong my Littlefinders. At VAMPD you can get different lengths and styles, so I recommend you go on their Instagram and get an idea of what you would like to get done.
I did know I wanted something that looked natural, and Alessandra was super helpful. Once I decided on my style, it was time to lay down and get comfortable. (They even offered me a blanket) The process is not painful at all, but you are laying down with your eyes clothes for about 45 minutes to an hour (per eye) but the time goes by super fast and before I knew it, they were done with my first eye and I got to take a look. I could not believe the difference.
You get a quick break, and it’s time to get working on the second eye. 45 minutes later she was done and my eyelashes looked INCREDIBLE. I have gotten so many compliments on them and I find myself wearing less makeup than usual. Alessandra at VAMPD did such a good job on them and I can’t believe I get to wakeup with these beautiful eyelashes.
A lot of you asked me on my Instagram about maintenance, so here we go:
-DO NOT TOUCH THEM. Yes I know they look incredible, but just don’t touch them
– No Mascara, at all. Honestly, you won’t need it.
– No getting them wet the for at least 8 hours.
– Be very careful taking your eye makeup off. Use oil-free cleansers and makeup removers. One good tip Alessandra gave me was using Vaseline to take my makeup off. You can also use a makeup remover towel, however, be careful that it doesn’t get stuck to your eyelashes.
-Using a mascara wand, brush through the lashes to keep them separated. Do this both in the morning and before going to bed.
-Make sure you get them filled. At VAMP you can choose from a variety of fills. Weekly, Bi-Weekly and every three weeks. You must have at least 30% of your lashes for it to be considered a fill and not a full set.
Getting my eyelashes done is one of my favorite beauty trends I have ever tried. I honestly feel so pretty with them, and I know I am in great hands with the girls at VAMPD.
