Waking up with the perfect look as if I had done my makeup a few seconds before is a dream come true. Well apparently not, i am wide awake and this is definitely a reality check.
A few days ago, I have experienced the Silk Eyelash Extensions at DOT Beauty, the new destination for beauty lovers in Doha.
Since I have never done this before, I have my concerns and was afraid to go for this treatment. Moreover, i have heard so many myths about eyelash extensions (“my eyelash will fall out” or “they will never grow back”). Fortunately, after talking to Tamara, the beauty expert, she helped me to understand better on what exactly I was looking for. What i had in mind was something natural and Tamara suggested the perfect treatment to what i was looking for.
The treatment consists of cleaning the eyelashes, removing every traces of makeup, and then apply the eyelash extensions accordingly. The eyelash brand used in the treatment was Xtreme Lashes, which is one of the most popular brands in the United States. Does the name Kim Kardashian rings any bell?!
The whole process lasted about two hours, the beautician has to be extra careful in order to get the perfect result. Personally, I almost felt asleep for the first one hour and half, then I got tired of laying down too long without moving any muscle.
The eyelash extensions will last at least two months but extra care should always be taken into consideration when removing the make up. The glue used to apply the extensions are organic, best to avoid any contact around the eye area when applying oil based cream or lotion: oil tends to tear off the eyelashes.
Normally, every third week, our eyelashes will go through the growth and shedding cycles, therefore it is recommended to have some refill with you in order to maintain fuller eyelashes. And if you think it is because of the extensions your natural eyelashes will never grow back, you are definitely wrong! Without the newly grown lashes, applying the refill wouldn’t be possible.
Honestly I’d never thought that I would go for this treatment and now after experiencing it, I won’t be able to stay away from this amazing eyelash extensions!
The cost for this treatment is QAR 1300 and the refill is QAR 650. DOT Beauty is located at University Street, opposite to Qatar University.
