Tell me more…
The main difference between us and our competitors is the fact that we are specialists, doing lash extensions all day every day. There really is nothing we do not know about eyelashes. Our products are also far superior and as we are an Irish company, we get the latest products the minute they’re manufactured. Our reputation really is faultless too with 100s of regular clients for extension service alone. For your privacy, the salon is open plan for the eyelash extension treatments but we also offer one private room.
Why choose us?
Don’t just trust your eyes to any Eyelash Extension Specialist – here’s why:
- When PROPERLY applied, you can’t feel any difference after your eyelash extension procedure. It should feel completely weightless. Lashes should look full yet individually separated with no clumps. They should be placed correctly, individually and artistically.
- When IMPROPERLY applied, your lashes feel heavy and uncomfortable as if you were wearing at home glue-on lashes. There should be no mascara-like clumps, multiple criss-crossed lashes together or gaps.
Eyelash Extensions @ Up To My Eyes
Eyelash extensions are a relatively new beauty procedure in Ireland. There is no comparison between lash extensions and self stick-on strips of false lashes or salon applied cluster lashes that are stuck on to the skin. The lashes are made of either acrylic, silk or mink lashes and are applied one-by-one onto the natural lash with a safe lash glue that lasts approx 4 to 6 weeks.
The extensions give the eyes an instant lift and in many cases have the effect of mini-face lift without the pain. It is a relaxing procedure and many of our clients fall asleep. There’s no need for mascara as the extensions give the eyes a full, luscious look and as they are water proof, they are perfect for holiday wear.
At Up To My Eyes, your lash extensions are tailor made to suit you and your lifestyle. You can choose from a natural beauty look to a fantastically glamorous, wow-look. The eyes are very important as they’re the first thing that people notice about us and after having them applied just once, many people will choose to have the extensions over a new hair cut. Try them and you will understand why.
The Golden Rule
The golden rule for wearing eyelash extensions is THE LESS YOU TOUCH THEM, THE LONGER THEY LAST! They do require you to be gentle with them and rubbing or tugging is out. Similarly, excessive exposure to saunas or steam weakens them as does oil-based mascaras and eye make-up remover.
The procedure takes approximately 2 hrs for a full-set and 60 mins for an in-fill. It’s a meticulous procedure that requires patience and concentration; it can not be rushed if we are to ensure that clients leave with a perfect set of lashes. Our trained professionals will ensure you’re relaxed. You will have your eyes closed and experience no pain as it’s a non-invasive procedure.
At Up to My Eyes, client comfort is of utmost importance to us. We always use soft under-eye collagen pads specifically designed for eyelash extensions to hold down the lower lashes; we don’t use surgical tape or lash tint paper, which is uncomfortable for the client. Next, a single natural eyelash is isolated and a synthetic lash is glued to the top of the client’s own natural lash, approximately 1mm from the eyelid so neither the glue or the lash has contact with the skin.
Often clients are so relaxed they fall asleep!
How long do they last?
After 4 weeks you can expect to have approx 50% of your Up To My Eyes lashes remaining depending on your natural hair growth speed AND if you respect and take care of them. Remember, this is a semi-permanent beauty procedure. Do not be duped by those who promise extensions that last for months. A real lash’s cycle is around 30 – 60 days and as yours grow and fall out, so will the ones newly-attached.
As it is hard to determine at what stage each lash is at in the growth cycle when applying the extensions, it is unpredictable when and which lash naturally falls out. Each day we can lose 3 – 5 natural lashes but often they go un-noticed unless they fall into your eye. When eyelash extensions shed we are much more aware of it as we know the extensions are there because they are longer, darker and thicker. Eyelash extensions DO NOT make your natural lash fall out.
YUMI™ Lashes: The Only Alternative to Extensions
At Up To My Eyes we know that lash extensions are simply not for everyone. But don’t despair, in YUMI™ LASHES Lash Enhancement – a genuine REVOLUTION in the beauty world, we’ve found both the ideal compliment and only alternative to extensions for women looking for a stunning gaze and longer lashes.
Eyes are, arguably, the most beautiful part of any woman’s face. They can convey so much meaning with a simple glance, and betray the emotions felt behind them and give others a glimpse of the real you. Lashes frame the eyes and guide other people’s gaze to their centre. Making the most of eyelashes, giving a stunning lift and tinting them to suit the skin tones, is a striking way to make the most of what women were born with – their natural beauty. This is what YUMI™ Lashes @ Up To My Eyes Lashes is about. Simple.
What is it?
Instead of doing a traditional perm that simply curves your lashes, YUMI™ LASHES turns the eyelashes upwards, gives them Length, Height and Volume, and an appearance of having longer and thicker lashes. YUMI™ Lashes is a new technique that lengthens your own lashes without using lash extensions. It may complement the application of lash extensions, in order to facilitate their applications when your lashes are too straight or too curved: Beauty in the wink of an eye!
