Eyelash experts at Pastels Salon offer to give you fuller, longer lashes that won’t leave you looking like a doll or like you’re actually wearing extensions. New lash expert Laila Nazari has added discreet length to celebrities and hopes to do the same for us.
Step by step
The session begins with a consultation with Laila. She uses synthetic lashes, in various lengths and explains that her technique is to only go 30 percent longer than our own lash length for a natural look that won’t damage our lashes. Laila begins by cleaning the eye area and placing cooling gel pads under our eyes for comfort. The process takes about an hour.
We end up with natural looking, lightweight lashes that we can’t feel on our eyes. The length is ideal as they don’t look too fake. Each of our eyes is now gently volumised with around 140 individual lashes and the difference is subtle, but noticeable and attractive. The extensions maintain their fullness for a good two weeks.
• Laila really knows how to take care of lashes and brows and is full of great tips and advice on how we can maintain our new lashes
• They are super-light and we almost forget we have them on.
• There’s no need for us to wear mascara for two weeks.
• The finish may actually be a little too natural-looking for those who prefer a heavy lash look.
