Below is a list of Beautique’s most frequently asked questions:
Q: How long do the eyelash extensions last?
A: The lashes typically last anywhere from 3-5 weeks with proper care. Fills should be booked every 3-4 weeks to maintain your set.
Q: How many lashes do you apply for a Classic full set?
A: We apply lashes to every one of your natural lashes (except new growth). This is generally anywhere from 50-100 lashes per eye, depending on the number of natural lashes you have.
Q: What are Russian Volume 3D lashes?
A: Russian volume lashes are 3 light, thin lashes that are grouped together then applied per lash. This allows for maximum volume and Russian 3D lashes can be mixed with Classic lashes to achieve your desired fullness.
Q: How long do Russian lashes last?
A: Russian 3D lashes typically last a bit longer than average classic lashes, a fill should be scheduled every 3-5 weeks.
Q: What type of eyelashes do you use?
A: Beautique uses only high-quality synthetic mink & synthetic silk lashes in a wide variety of lengths, thicknesses, curls, and colours.
Q: Can I fill the lashes more than once?
A: Yes lashes can be filled on an ongoing basis from the initial full set application – as long as the lashes aren’t too grown out or damaged. Using a product like Eyenvy can help maintain your lash health.
Q: Do you fill other people’s lash work?
A: We can fill other people’s lash work as long as the initial lash application was done properly. If not, we can do a removal and full set – but please keep in mind that a removal takes 15-30 minutes and appointment durations for full sets and fills vary.
Q: Does the process hurt?
A: Not at all, most people fall asleep during the application.
Q: What are the chances of an allergic reaction?
A: It is very rare that someone has a reaction. The lashes are attached to your eyelash and not your skin, therefore minimizing the chances of reaction. Should you have a reaction, please contact me immediately.
Q: I wear contact lenses, is that ok?
A: Yes it is safe to wear the contacts during and after the application.
Q: Will the lashes damage my natural lashes?
A: With proper care and attention, the lash extensions will not damage your natural ones. See the lash care page for instructions.
Q: I want a very dramatic look, is that possible?
A: A dramatic look is possible, however it depends on the length and number of your natural lashes.
Q: I have blonde lashes, does that matter?
A: No, the glue is black and your natural lashes won’t be visible when the false lashes are attached.
Q: How do I remove the lashes?
A: You can book an appointment here for a removal, or if most of the lashes have fallen off naturally, you can soak the lashes in a baby oil or olive oil for a few hours, then gently begin to remove lashes with a Q-tip.
Q: Can I wear mascara with lash extensions on?
A: There are oils in regular mascara that will remove the lashes prematurely – if you need to use mascara, we sell an oil-free extension mascara at Beautique.
Q: Is there anything I should do before coming to my appointment?
A: Come with clean eyes (no makeup or mascara) if possible. Otherwise we have makeup remover available here.
