Eyelash Extensions FAQ
What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are a series of semi-permanent synthetic lashes applied individually to your existing eyelashes. The application of the eyelash extensions adds additional length, volume and curl to your existing lashes. The final look can be very natural, glamorous, or somewhere in between, making them perfect for everyday wear, or that special occasion.

What do lash extensions look like?
With proper application by a skilled lash stylist, your lash extensions will look completely natural and as if you were born with long, beautiful lashes.
How long do eyelash extensions last?
With a bit of care and TLC, each lash extension, when properly applied, should outlast the natural growth cycle of your natural lash. After you've had a full set applied by one of our lash stylists, we'll make sure you leave with all the info you need to properly look after your new beautiful lashes.
How often should I get refills/touch-ups?
We recommend you book in for a refill every 2/3 weeks to maintain your eyelash extensions. If you leave too long between refills, too many of your lashes will fallen out for us to maintain the look, and in that case, we'd have to book you in for a full set again. Your natural eyelashes fall off every 60 - 90 days due to the natural growth cycle and are naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. When the eyelash falls out naturally, so will the attached extension and the eyelash that has grown in its place will need a new lash extension.
What kind of adhesive do you use?
Beauty Boutique LA uses formaldehyde free, surgical grade, hypo-allergenic adhesive.
I have sensitive skin, will my skin have a reaction to the adhesive?
The adhesive is only ever applied on the natural lash, and never on to the skin. However, if you have a specific concern, we can arrange for a consultation and a patch test if required.
Do lash extensions damage your natural lashes?
When applied by a skilled lash stylist, they will make sure that they only use lash extensions that are capable of being supported by your natural lash both in terms of weight and length.
Can I wear eye makeup or mascara?
Yes, you can wear eye makeup and mascara, but you need to make sure any products you use around your lash extensions are water based, and not oiled based. Oil based products will loosen the bond between the natural lash and the lash extension and as a result, it will fall out sooner.
