Lash Me: The 411 on Eyelash Extensions + Full Set Giveaway

Eyelash-extensions

Once a well-kept celebrity secret–eyelash extensions are THE beauty essential everyone’s talking about. Never tried them before? Well first, its a great way to have people wondering what you’ve done differently, how you look so beautiful without makeup on, or what new step you’ve added to your beauty routine. They completely open up your eyes and add that extra oomph many women are looking for. Not only that, it reduces your morning/evening glam routine by not having to apply fake lashes or mascara–you’ll also find you won’t even need eyeliner, IT’S THAT GOOD! Read on below to learn more about eyelash extensions, snag your special discount, and enter to win a full set!

Synthetic vs. Mink Lashes

  • Synthetic Lashes: thicker, heaver, and more full. They also offer that perfect lash curve and uniform appearance while still appearing natural. Perfect for special occasion and short-term wear (i.e. vacations).
  • Mink Lashes: weightless, natural-looking, and longer lasting. However, they are thinner than their synthetic counterparts and will probably require mascara to get the same look as synthetic.

Personally, I’m a big fan of the synthetic lashes because they are non-irritating (many people are allergic to the mink), they look perfect and yet so natural, and are easy to maintain. They also last fairly long and as long as you care for them–they’ll only fall out with your natural lashes. BUT, you can also go with a customized blend and get the best of both 😉

Lash Life

  • Your lashes will last until your natural lash falls out–so with proper care, about 6 weeks. It is recommended that you go for a “lash fill” every 2-4 weeks to ensure that they are always looking their best. I’ve had mine done exactly 2 weeks ago and have had minimal lash fallout–they still look fantastic!

Do’s and Don’ts

  • Do brush your lashes with a clean mascara wand daily (provided with application)
  • Do opt for a gel cleanser and wash your face gently
  • If you choose to wear mascara (trust me, you don’t need it :)), use one that is water-based (not waterproof)
  • Don’t curl your lashes–they’re already perfectly curled anyway!
  • Avoid steam and oil-based makeup removers
  • For the first 24 hours, don’t apply water to your lashes

Now these are just recommendations to maintain the longest life of your lashes. If you get some water on your lashes before 24 hours or forget to brush your lashes for a day or two–its no big deal, mine held up just fine 🙂

Bridal Makeup & Eyelash Extensions by Margo aka {iKandi}

  • My beautiful set of eyelash extensions were applied by Margo aka iKandi and I am thrilled with the results. I’ve had previous extensions applied and some were done very nicely but I’ve also had pretty bad experiences as well (red bloodshot eyes for about 2 weeks and having to get a doctor’s prescription). It’s important to have a trained specialist who is very hygienic, doesn’t take any short-cuts (i.e. “stacking” the lashes), and takes special care in the application of the lashes. Margo carries with her 5 years of experience and gave me a flawless eyelash application with zero irritation, and pretty quickly too! I once sat in a chair for 3 hours…it should only take an hour and a half for a full set 🙂
  • Location: Margo currently operates with a residential set-up and is located at Major Mackenzie and Weston Rd. (Vaughan/Woodbridge); If your home is equipped with a massage/esthetics table, Margo will travel to you for an additional fee of $50.
  • Cost: $100 for a Full Last Set, $40 for a refill at the 2 week mark, $60 for a refill at the 3-4 week mark

  1. My lashes are very short, this would be fun to try!!

  2. I’m a new mom and I’ve gone through a lot of changes over the last year. I hardly have time for myself anymore so putting on makeup is a luxury at times. I know a good coat of mascara works wonders, and always helps to make me feel a little better about my looks. Getting these lashes would be a blessing as I would have that permanent coat of mascara (at least for a little while).

  3. I would like to win this for my friend. (Present!)

  4. I would love to try this out- looks beautiful on you! I just moved to the city and Im always on the go, so I would love to give these a try to speed up my routine as well as find a new beauty place in Toronto.
