What are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash Extensions are synthetic fibers that adhered with 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 your entire natural lash-life cycle. 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 6-8 weeks. You shed up to 4 natural lashes per day.
Are Luxury Eyelash Extensions Safe?
At Couture Gypsy we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality beauty services for our clients. 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. However, we do offer a specially formulated Lash-scara mascara in our Lash Studios for those who feel the need especially nearing time for the next refill.
How should I arrive to my appointment?
Please come to your Luxury Eyelash Extension appointment eye-makeup free! If you come with no mascara 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.
What is the difference between a Lash Artist and a Master Lash Artist?
At Couture Gypsy we have Lash Artists who are at different skill levels. Lash Artists are not as experienced as Master Lash Artists and tend to have longer appointment times. All lash gypsies provide you with their best service!
What is Microblading?
Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery 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!
How is Microblading done?
The microblade tool is dipped into a pigment and then used to make a fine, hair-like, cut in the skin.
With the proper technique, microbladed eyebrow results look beautiful and completely natural. Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows.
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 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 tend to think Ombre Powder Brows are more comfortable.
Is everyone a candidate for permanent makeup?
Unfortunately not everyone is a candidate. Please call the Studio for more information 512.887.4559
