14 Tips to Prepare and Enjoy Your New Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash Extensions 12" 
When I was a child, I had full, long and beautiful lashes. People commented about them all the time and my mother even told her friends how they were one of my finer features.

However, as I have aged my lashes (like everything else), have gotten thinner and shorter. Out of frustration, about a year ago I called Maria Suciu at Callatis Spa to extend my lashes and I have received endless compliments ever since! 

But you do need to prepare for the procedure which takes between 1.5 to 2 hours. Now, that may seem like a long time, but if you take care of your lashes, you only need to come back every 4-6 weeks. 

Below are the 14 tips:

Different Colors Available at Callatis Spa

  1. Remove all your eye makeup and creams. 
  2. Take out your contacts -- bring your glasses to your appointment. 
  3. Don't drink a lot of liquids before your appointment because your eyelids are going to be closed for whole time. However, Maria recommends you drink a lot of water the day before to make certain your skin is hydrated. 
  4. Always, always have your lashes put on by a licensed esthetician.  
  5. Select what color lashes you want to put on. Check out the photo above for some options. 

Eyelash Extensions -- Beautiful! 

  1. Try and relax and listen to the music played at Callatis Spa
  2. Bring your own iPod full of relaxing music to listen to. 
  3. Once the procedure is over, it is normal for your eyes to water slightly due to the glue. Maria will provide you with a fan that will help dissipate the fumes. 
  1. Keep your lashes bone dry for the first 24 hours. 
  2. Wear only oil-free makeup and use only oil-free makeup remover. 
  3. No need to use mascara! Your lashes already look beautiful!
  4. Use a lash brush. You will need to buy one and comb your lashes when you get out of the shower and before you put on your makeup. 
  5. I use eyeliner to make my eyes pop; but only use water-based or cake eyeliner and wash your brushes out daily. 
  6. Never use an eyelash curler as that will weaken the glue and your lashes will come off. 
I can now say, I have beautiful and sexy lashes thanks to Maria! Give the gift of Callatis Spa to someone special in your life or come in and experience the wonder of lash extensions for yourself!
