Can I Get Lash Extensions If I Wear Glasses?

So, can you get eyelash extensions if you wear glasses? The answer is a resounding yes!

One of the problems many women run into when they wear glasses is mascara rubbing off on the lenses. This is one reason why lash extensions can actually offer even more added perks for eyeglass wearers!

Rather than applying multiple coats of mascara in the mornings and dealing with smudges all day long, consider investing in a beautiful set of lash extensions. Extensions are an affordable and convenient way to sport luscious lashes around the clock. Your eyes will look bigger, brighter, and will “pop” even when you’re wearing your glasses.

Will the Eyelash Extensions Brush the Lenses of My Glasses?

A good tip is to take your glasses with you to your lash extension appointment. This way, you can see if length will be an issue before the full set of extensions is applied. Your stylist will be able to customize a set of lashes that will suit your style of glasses. For example, they may choose to use lash extensions with a more exaggerated upward curl so they steer clear of your lenses, giving you the comfortable and natural feel you desire!

Are Contacts an Option?

If you are still concerned about whether your lash extensions will be compatible with your eyeglasses, you might consider wearing contact lenses. While contact lenses shouldn’t be worn while the extensions are being applied, once they’ve set, pop them in and you won’t have to worry about lenses potentially obstructing your voluminous new set.

Trust Your Stylist

Getting eyelash extensions when you wear glasses is not as tricky as it might seem. Your Caroline’s Lash Boutique stylist has your back. We are happy to answer any questions, offer tips, and take any concerns or requests into consideration.

Ultimately, we want you to end up with a set of lashes you are pleased with! We’re here to help you embrace and enhance your beauty. Glasses or no glasses, we’re confident you’ll love the gorgeous, luxurious look of your lash extensions.

Why Colored Lashes Are the Perfect Special Occasion Accessory

We love festive holidays and special occasions, and the more color and sparkle involved, the better. Now that we’re all partied out after Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day is our next reason to celebrate. We’ll already be donning our favorite green attire, but what about a unique pair of themed lashes to match?

No need to get pinched on March 17! Caroline’s Lash Boutique is offering green tinted lash extensions just in time for the festivities. We’re proud to offer a wide variety of lash options year-round, including seasonal and custom colors. Now is the time to get into the Irish spirit!

Each colored lash set is made of synthetic, cruelty-free fibers that maintain a natural and comfortable feel. Because our lash extensions are applied individually to each existing lash, you decide whether you want to blend subtle style into a natural-toned set or go all out with a full set of bold color. You can even up the ante with sparkled or jeweled lashes, which add flirty flair when applied to the outer corners of the eyes.

Our clients often find themselves approached by people who want to know what kind of mascara they use… but no additional makeup is needed to achieve a beautifully curled and colored lashline! Colored lashes typically last as long as standard extensions (as long as your natural lash life cycle), while sparkled tips last for 3-4 days. You can simply follow the same care tips you would after a standard appointment, though we don’t recommend vigorous combing for sparkled lashes.

Pencil us in on your 2017 calendar! We’ve got all your favorite colors for every holiday or themed special occasion: jewel tones for Easter and springtime; red, gold, and silver for Christmas and New Year’s; pink and purple for Valentine’s Day; and we’ve even got Seahawks blue and green so you can show your team spirit when NFL season rolls around.

5 Things Beginners May Not Know About Lash Extensions

Eyelash extensions are an ideal semi-permanent beauty treatment for those who want dramatic eyes and lashes. Applying false lashes at home can give an artificial feel. Investing in professionally applied lash extensions can give you a stunning look that feels perfectly natural. While supermodels and actresses have relied on this beauty secret for years, these days, people of all ages and professions are opting for eyelash extensions.

If you haven’t yet been in for an appointment, here are a few points you may be surprised to learn:

1. The skill of your eyelash artist matters. Eyelash extensions come in a variety of lengths, colors, and materials. Depending on the look you’re going for, the length and strength of your natural lashes, and your complexion, the artist installing your lashes can guide you toward the right extensions.

2. You can get real or synthetic lashes. For instance, lashes made from real mink fur can provide a 100% natural and authentic appearance. They also tend to be lighter than synthetics, giving your lashes a feathery end look. Synthetic lashes are ideal for those who prefer to avoid animal-sourced fibers. They also tend to be slightly more budget-friendly than mink versions.

3. Lash extensions are attached to your existing lashes. Your artist will carefully attach individual extensions to your existing natural lashes, one lash at a time. This meticulous process ensures a mess-free and seamless end product.

4. It may be a good idea to treat your existing lashes before getting extensions. Because lash extensions add weight, if your lashes are very short or fragile, you may want to pre-treat them with a strengthening serum before your artist adds your extensions.

5. You really won’t need mascara. Lash extensions can give you the length, curl, and tone you’ve been dreaming of, without the need to paint on mascara every time you leave the house. In some cases, using mascara can actually damage your extensions and reduce their useful lifespan. On average, they last a month with little maintenance or upkeep, and you won’t have to worry about your mascara running throughout the day.

5 Highlights of Mink Lashes

Are you tired of wrestling with false eyelashes in the morning? Do you wish you could have longer yet natural-looking lashes? For many who desire dramatic lashes, lash extensions are the best one-stop solution. When carefully applied in a professional salon, individual lash extensions are adhered to your natural lashes in a manner that won’t damage your actual lashes. As long as you go back in for touch ups every three to four weeks, these extensions can be maintained for up to three months. When it comes time to choose the right extensions for you, mink lashes are one of the most luxurious and natural-looking options.

1. Mink lashes are all-natural. Mink lashes are completely natural, soft, dark, and lightly curled. Because mink is a naturally occurring fur, it blends beautifully with natural lashes. Mink extensions are pre-treated before arrival to ensure cleanliness and curl. Real mink lashes give a more natural look to your extensions, as each lash is a different length.  

2. Mink lashes offer a glamorous, full look. Between the way they are styled and their careful application, mink lashes can give your lashes a sultry, glamorous look. Because of minor variations in length and color, they look as natural as your real lashes. When they are professionally applied, people generally will not be able to tell they are false. Even the nicest home lash extensions can be quickly spotted as fake by untrained eyes, but mink extensions give you full lashes easily.

3. Synthetic mink lashes are also available. Of course, not everyone likes the idea of using real mink fur. There are also synthetic mink lashes available, which seek to duplicate the color, texture, and curve of mink lashes without supporting the fur trade or aggravating those with fur allergies. There are several exceptional options, as mink has become the gold standard to imitate.

4. Mink lashes are lightweight. Because they are such light, natural hairs, mink lashes don’t weigh down your natural lashes when applied. This makes them feel and look light, feathery, and more natural.

5. Mink lashes are naturally dark. When these beauties are applied to your lashes, you won’t need to slather on the mascara to get that dark, voluminous, feathery look. There’s a reason they’re popping up on celebrities and beauty icons.

If you are looking for a local, professional lash extension application expert, make Caroline’s Lash Boutique your destination! We offer real mink and synthetic mink extensions, along with volume lashes and other top trends. Book your lash extension appointment today!

Why Eyelash Extensions Are the Perfect Rainy Season Beauty Solution

If you have short, thin, or pale eyelashes, trying to darken and bulk them up can be a time-consuming, expensive, and overall frustrating process. Especially in the notoriously rainy Pacific Northwest, attempts to darken and lengthen your lashes can fall flat, or worse, end up staining your cheeks and your shirt with runoff mascara.

Even the most expensive waterproof mascara may run when soaked by a torrential downpour, making it hard to justify the expense involved. Thankfully, semi-permanent eyelash extensions are an effective, simple, and moisture-proof alternative that can last a full month or longer without the wet weather risk.

Temporary False Lashes Can Be Frustrating

You only have to accidentally glue an expensive designer set of temporary false eyelashes to your fingertip, the back of your hand, or your bathroom counter one time to know how aggravating trying to put on your own false lashes can be.

Many people don’t have the patience or the manual dexterity to get them perfectly situated, which can also be embarrassing if someone else notices a gap between your natural lash line and your false lashes, or, heaven forbid, one of your temporary false lashes comes loose while you are out and about.

Eyelash Extensions Have Staying Power

Because they are semi-permanent instead of temporary, eyelash extensions can continue to look as beautiful as the day they were professionally attached to your lash lines. Instead of a large, bulky line of attached lashes, professionally placed lash extensions are installed individually onto your existing lashes. This allows them to blend more naturally with your existing lashes and ensures good coverage in areas where your natural lashes are missing or thinner.

Once they are in place, you can basically forget about them for several weeks, as you won’t even need mascara to make your lashes the star of the show!

Eyelash Extensions Are a Low Maintenance Beauty Option

Once you have eyelash extensions, you can forget about that mascara and eyelash curler. In fact, you should avoid both, as they can damage or tug off your eyelash extensions. Water-based mascara is okay, but waterproof mascara and heavy-duty removers can compromise the adhesive used. Lash extensions are also surprisingly affordable, especially compared to the expense involved in purchasing designer temporary false lashes and designer mascara. If you’re tired of running mascara and disappointing false lashes, it’s time to upgrade to eyelash extensions!
