My lash extensions

Thursday, 24 May 2012


I have been wanting to get my lashes done for a while now as I trained in eyelash extensions when living in the UK, but didn’t ever practise doing them – this takes serious patience and a very steady hand! I always see girls with the extensions and think it can look absolutely amazing (when done properly, of course)!


I had heard about Lisa and Mera at Urban Lash & Tan‘the girls who give the best spray tan and eyelash extensions in Cape Town’ and I had to give it a go – unfortunately for my bank balance it looks like I may just be addicted! Already planning my first fill!


As I have mentioned before, I wear minimal make up and these extensions have made this even easier to get by with. I went for a full set where every single lash has an extension put onto it, this is what ensures the really natural look and no need for mascara what-so-ever, so my make-up routine literally involves tinted moisturiser and bronzer/blush!


The initial session (full set) takes up to 2 hours and thereafter you can go for top ups every 2/3 weeks which are much cheaper and quicker. You can specify which look you want to go for – whether it is more volume, extra length or a cat-eye look. I went for length and cat eye. I think these extensions are particular amazing for events where you are being photographed – it literally makes your eyes pop! The great part is that they last really well (2/3 weeks until a top up is needed) so you really are getting our money’s worth.

Excuse the bizarre pictures, but figured this was the only way I could show you properly! :)




Maintenance at home is an important factor and really makes the difference in how well your set lasts - so no harsh face washes on the eye area and rather pat your face dry avoiding the eye area. Basically any oil-based product will break down the glue bond, so steer clear of these. Urban Lash and Tan offer water based mascaras (if you really think you need this) and water based make up removers.

    1. You will just love it. I am so keen for my next fill. Makes going from work to drinks/dinner a breeze (no mascara half way down your face!)

  2. Wow, that looks really beautiful!

    Was it irritating for your eyes to get them? Anything coming close to my eye freaks me out (took me years to get used to contact lenses) so I'm not sure I can handle that!

    1. Not at all, when getting them done its just lying with your eyes closed and then it took me about 2 hours to get used to it. Just means to rubbing tired eyes :) so much better than putting mascara on everyday though!

    1. I know - how amazing. Already booked my spray tan for July with her (and of course lash fills). What a treat!

  4. The only things to remember when one wants to have great eyelash extensions is to avoid anything to dab around your eyes at all. I'm not even certain if those "non-oily" products are compatible with the glue bond with the extensions so its best to avoid anything at all.

    1. Get it - best thing ever. Plus they normally R650 so once you get that initial set at R450 its pretty cheap to maintain :)
