What are Nouveau Lashes?
Nouveau Lashes are semi-permanent eyelash extensions composed of single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are virtually weightless and curved to replicate a natural eyelash. Nouveau Lashes are applied directly to the individual natural eyelash, one at a time. Available in various lengths, thicknesses, curvatures and colours, there are endless options for design. The result is a long lasting and natural looking extension of your natural beauty.
How long will they last?
By following the proper aftercare instructions, your new lashes will last as long as your own natural lash cycle, you can shed up to 5 eyelashes per day. Your natural lashes will fall out at different stages of their life cycle and will be replaced by the growth of a new lash. The cycle is approx 6 weeks but this will vary from person to person. Due to this cycle, infills are recommended about every 2-3 weeks to maintain a consistent full look.
Can different looks be achieved?
Depending upon your specific needs and what kind of look you wish to create, lash extensions come in varying lengths, thicknesses and curls.
How long will they make my lashes?
Depending on the length of the lash size you choose, extensions can make your lashes 3mm longer.
What do I have to do to keep them up?
Ensure the correct aftercare is followed and maintained with infills about every 2-3 weeks to replace lost lashes. After two to three touch ups, it is time for a fresh set to keep the lashes looking new.
How soon before an event should I have them done?
We suggest around 2 days before that special event or vacation. This ensures accurate curing time for the bonding agent (which can take up to 48 hours) and the freshest possible look for the lashes.
Can I use mascara on my extensions?
Using mascara on your extensions is NOT recommended. The look and ease of lash extensions are designed so that you don't need to use mascara at all. Most mascaras contain ingredients that will damage and dissolve the bonding agent on your extensions and hence make them last not nearly as long.
What about eye liner?
Avoid using petroleum based products that are waxy or creamy. Powdered options are safe because their ingredients are compatible with the lashes bonding agent and will not break it down.
Can I use my cleanser to remove my make up?
Most facial cleansers are too oily or creamy to be used around the eye area when you have lash extensions. Recommended are non-oily makeup removers which is available for purchase here at Vamp.
Do they damage my natural lashes?
By taking care of your lashes by following the aftercare instructions, your extensions will not damage your natural eyelashes. If you pull or are too rough on your lashes, then your eyelash will come off with the extension. Naturally your lashes will grow back in time without any problem, so it is nothing to worry about. Be gentle with your lashes and they will last much longer.
I sleep on my stomach. Will this affect my lashes?
Covering your eyes with a sleeping mask will greatly increase the longevity of your lashes. Sleeping on your side may loosen the lashes on that side, so a sleeping mask is highly recommended.
Can you remove them?
Yes. They can be removed easily for you, however you must not attempt this yourself as this may cause damage to your natural lashes.
How will the eyelash extensions look once applied?
Once applied, eyelash extensions should look completely natural. There should be a seamless transition from the natural eyelash to the eyelash extension.
Can I swim with eyelash extensions?
Yes. You can swim with eyelash extensions. Just make sure that you don't rub your eyes and that you wait 2 days after the application. The adhesive can break down if it is immersed in water within the first 2 days after the application.
How long does it take to apply extensions?
Depending on the amount of eyelash extensions being applied, a full set can take anywhere from 90 to 120 minutes. Infill appointments every 2-3 weeks will take no longer than 60 minutes.
Is the Adhesive safe?
Yes, the adhesives used for the application of eyelash extensions are hypoallergenic, specially formulated for use around the eye area. The main ingredient is that which is found in medical grade adhesives used to perform suture less wound closures. Your eyes remain closed throughout the procedure and the adhesive is only applied to the natural lash and doesn't touch the skin.
