Beauty cheat: Lash Extensions

EN:

You're out late, even if you know you have to wake up early the next day. You're the soul of the party and it goes on until 5 in the morning.

You pay the cab. Look for the keys in your clutch and walk into the house. You get undressed, heels first. You clean up your make-up and finally lay down in bed. You fall asleep smiling, thinking about the wild night that you just had.

"BZZZZRRZZZ BRRRZZZRRR .." the vibrations start before the alarm goes on. It's 8 o'clock without 10 minutes. "WHAT? Nooooo!" You jump out of bed, get some clothes on and think about a good excuse for your being late. Arrived at the mirror, you notice, that you did a poor job taking that make-up off .. You're not hungover, but your face looks like it's still asleep. You've got just a few minutes! What do you do with them?

Most women will make a quick decision. All women have a - minimum - beauty ritual we go through when we're in a hurry. For me, it sounds like this: mascara, foundation and blush. The only one I would never give up on, under any circumstances, is my mascara.

... until I discovered eyelash extensions. Someone probably knew I go through many mornings like this! For me they're my savior.

What I love most, isn't the time I save, but the fact that the long and rich lashes always attract attention towards the eyes. They look perfectly natural, you don't mind them and they don't fall.

The eyes are expressive and seductive, even if you just took your make-up off, or if you're at the pool or at the gym .. or sleeping next to your lover.

I posted some pictures from my first experience. I'll tell you a bit about it and how Flore trained me to take care of them. - She's the specialist.

RO:

Stai pana tarziu in oras, chiar daca stii ca a 2-a zi ai program de dimineata. Esti sufletul petrecerii, iar petrecerea se stinge abia la 5 dimineata.

Platesti taxiul. Cauti cheile in gentuta plic si intri in casa. Tocurile le dai prima data jos. Apoi, te tarasti pana in baie sa te demachiez si la final, te pui in pat. Te cuibaresti si adormi zambind cu gandul la seara nebuna pe care ai avut-o.

"BZZZZRRZZZ BRRRZZZRRR.." vibratiile telefonului vin inaintea soneriei. E ora 8 fara 10 minute. "CUM?! Nuuuuu!!" Sari din pat, iei rapid ceva pe tine si te gandesti cum sa formulezi o scuza buna, pentru care ai intarziat. Ajunsa la oglinda, observi ca nu te-ai demachit intocmai bine noaptea trecuta.. Nu esti mahmura, dar fata ta parca doarme inca. Mai ai cateva minute! Ce faci cu ele?

Majoritatea femeilor vor lua o decizie rapida. Fie care dintre noi avem un demers - minim - de beauty pe care-l parcurgem cand suntem in graba. La mine suna cam asa: mascara, fond de ten si blush. Rimelul fiind singurul la care nu as renunta sub nici o circumstanta.

... pana cand am descoperit extensiille de gene. Cineva probabil ca a stiut ca am multe dimineti de genul! Pentru mine ele sunt solutia salvatoare.

Ce-mi place cel mai mult, nu e faptul ca economisesc timpul cu rimelarea- evident, ci faptul ca genele lungi si bogate atrag mereu atentia spre ochi. Arata perfect natural, nu cad si nu te deranjeaza.

Ochii sunt expresivi si seducatoari, chiar daca abia te-ai demachiat, daca esti la piscina sau la sala.. sau dormind langa iubitul tau.

V-am adus cateva poze de la prima mea experienta cu ele. Va povestesc cum a fost si ce m-a instruit Flore. - Ea e specialista.

After she put them on, I was so excited with the results, that I couldn't wait to I tell you about them. But I waited a couple of weeks, just to make sure and see how they behave.

Okaaay. They still look just like the first day!

I can't believe it. Florentina warned me that a few lashes might fall off, just like any other hair: it grows, ages and falls, leaving room for a new thread to grow. Yet I haven't noticed any falling off. I'm scheduled to go for a "filling"  after another week, anyway.

How are they applied?

Well, you must have some time at hand, because the process takes approximately 3h. You first decide the length and shape of the lashed you want. Take some "before" pictures for comparison and relax. You lie on a bed, close your eyes and let the specialist glue an extension, on each natural, mature eyelash, 1mm from the root. ( The more eyelashes you've got, the fuller the final effect ) The glue is invisible and doesn't prevent the natural growth of the hair.

In about 3 weeks you can return to fill possible gaps remaining after the eyelash has aged and fallen out.

Flore gave me a set of sticks, a sponge and a special toothbrush and explained how I should take care of them, namely:

- To avoid oil based products.

- And in the first two days, to keep them away from water, steam or tanning. She pointed out to wait a day until I used make-up. No bother - why put on make-up when they look like this?

Dupa ce le-am pus, eram atata de entuziasmata de rezultat, incat abia asteptam sa va spun si voua despre ele. Am asteptat insa vreo doua saptamani, doar ca sa vad cum se comporta.

Buuun. Arata la fel ca in prima zi!

Nici nu-mi vine sa cred. Florentina m-a avertizat ca s-ar putea sa mai cada din ele, genele fiind ca oricare alt fir de par: creste, imbatraneste si cade, lasand loc unui nou fir sa creasca. Eu deocamdata nu vad unde ar fi cazut, dar oricum m-am programat sa ma duc la "umplut" peste inca o saptamana.

Cum se aplica?

Ei bine, trebuie sa ai putin timp la dispozitie, pentru ca procesul dureaza aproximativ 3 ore. Hotarasti lungimea genelor pe care ti-le doresti si forma finala. Faci cateva poze de "before" sa ai termen de comparatie si te relaxezi. Te intinzi pe un pat, inchizi ochii, iar specialista iti lipeste cate o extensie, pe fiecare geana naturala matura, la 1mm de radacina. ( Cu cat ai mai multe gene, cu atat efectul final va fi mai bogat ) Adezivul nu se vede si nici nu impiedica cresterea naturala a firului de par.

La aproximativ 3 saptamani poti reveni sa umpli posibilele goluri ramase, in urma genelor imbatranite si cazute.

Flore mi-a dat un set de betigase, un buretel si o periuta speciale si mi-a explicat cum sa am grija de ele, mai exact:

- sa evit produsele pe baza de ulei.

- iar in primele 2 zile, sa le tin departe de apa, aburi sau solar. Mi-a indicat sa astept macar o zi pana sa ma machiez. Nu ma deranja - de ce sa ma mai machiez cand arata asa ?!
