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 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!”

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.

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.

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.
