What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are synthetic fibers that adhered to your natural lashwith medical-grade eyelash adhesive. Our Luxury Eyelash Extensions provide length and fullness in your lashes you can’t get with mascara!
How long do Eyelash Extensions last?
With proper care Eyelash Extensions will last until your natural lash sheds. 2-3 week fills are recommended to keep your Luxury Eyelash Extensions as full and fabulous as possible!
What is my Natural Lash Life Cycle?
Your natural lashes have a life cycle of 5-8 weeks. You shed up to 4 natural lashes per day.
Are Luxury Eyelash Extensions Safe?
YES! When applied by our trained Lash Artists our Luxury Eyelash Extension will not cause harm to your natural lashes. With the majority of our clients we see growth and stronger natural lashes when we apply extensions. *We Can Not Guarantee Any Other Salons Work*
Can I wear Mascara?
Our eyelash extensions are longer and thicker than your natural lashes so mascara is typically not needed. We tend to advise against mascara as ingredients can lead to premature lash loss.
How should I arrive to my appointment?
Please come to your eyelash extension appointment eye-makeup free! It is very important to arrive with clean lashes that way we are able to prime your lashes and begin the service as soon as possible and there is no chance of makeup/oil blocking contact between the lash and the extension.
Can I come to you from another lash studio?
We would love you have you here at Couture Gypsy no matter where you are coming from! If lashes are applied correctly and are a healthy length & weight we will gladly fill in between another artists work for an additional $15 for your initial appointment.

What are Microblading & Ombre Brows?
Microblading, is a semi-permanent makeup procedure which is not as deep as a tattoo. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine. Microblading pigment does not fade into unnatural colors as compared to tattoo ink. No blue, gray, or pink faded brows here!
Microblading vs. Ombre Powder Brows?
Both procedures involve implanting pigment under the skin to give you beautiful brows!
Microblading gives a very natural “hair-like” appearance while Ombre Powder Brows gives you the look of makeup filled brows.
Microblading is preferred for clients with normal to dry skin types.
Ombre Powder Brows are great for all skin types!
How long does Microblading/Powder Brows take?
Your first session of each service includes drawing the perfect eyebrow shape, choosing the pigment, and the actual procedure which in all takes around 1.5-2 hr.
The Perfecting Session (touch up) takes 45 min-1.5 hr.
Do I have to have a Perfecting Session?
We highly recommend you attending your touch up appointment 4-6 weeks after your initial session. This is where we can add more strokes, adjust pigment color or shape, and insure you are completely satisfied with your new brows!
Is it painful?
Every person responds differently to permanent makeup. We apply a numbing anesthetic to help ease any discomfort but clients are usually quite comfortable!
Is everyone a candidate for permanent makeup?
Unfortunately not everyone is a candidate. Please call the Studio for more information 512.887.4559
