If you ask most women what makeup item which is especially mascara, they can’t live without. Beautiful, defined lashes make such a difference to your everyday appearance, but there are definite downsides, including smudges, clumps and the dreaded flakes that appear under your eyes towards the end of the day. But it’s the removal at night that is definitely the worst part of wearing mascara—panda eyes anyone? Suddenly eyelash extensions seem like a very attractive alternative. Beautiful, long, clump free lashes; no messy eye makeup removing each night; saves you time when getting ready in the morning… This definitely sounded like it was worth a try. There are more than 10000 of eyelash extensions salons in Tokyo now. If you’ve been to Tokyo recently or even just opened a Japanese fashion magazine, you probably know that the biggest beauty trend is long, voluminous eyelashes.

Firstly, you decide on the overall effect: natural, volume, color mix, or long styles etc. Then, with the help of the staff, you select the number of lashes you want to be applied to achieve the desired look, be that 40, 60, 80, 100 or unlimited individual lashes on each eye, and then the amount of curl and lash thickness. It’s important to carefully consider lash length and curl if you wear prescription glasses or sunglasses, as long length extensions can annoyingly hit against lenses. Your therapist will help you select the best curl and length for you. And then, start to put in one by one manually. Eyelash extensions are applied directly onto your natural lashes, and are carefully placed somewhere between one and two millimeters from the base of the lash.Applying eyelash extensions is painstaking work, with each treatment taking between about one and two hours, depending on how many lashes are being applied

Before the treatment begins you need to ensure that your lashes are free of all eye makeup. So, if you can, arrive at the salon with clean lashes. If not, bring your eye makeup remover to remove all traces of eyeliner and mascara before the treatment starts. If you forget, the staff has a number of products that you can use.There’s no doubt about it: eyelash extensions are high maintenance. But I think sometimes it pays to be a little high maintenance with your beauty appointments, in order to be lower maintenance every day.I believe they are perfect when you have a special occasion and are looking for a really glamorous makeup look, are going on a beach or swimming holiday (no runny mascara after your swim), or for anyone just wants to save time on their daily beauty routine. If you want to try to get this wonderful beauty, recommend to go to “Ueno, Celebi Eye（ セレビアイ）” where if you are the new customer, you can take “unlimited eyelash” for only 4500 Yen!
