Hi dear,

My sister had single eyelid like your but mine is double, we want for a eyelash extension last month specially for a wedding dinner.Her eyes turn out to be more beautiful than mine.
The beautician even teach her how to do a simple but outstanding makeup after the extension, my sis said she will go back for more after her flake lash fall off months later.

Actually single eyelid can look very beautiful too and can look very cool and sexy with corrective make over.

You should try and i am sure you will love it, check around for prices as lash extension prices can vary from $60 to $250 depending on the beauty centre's location and quality of lash and glue. Don't pay for the rental, pay for the service! ask around before you go. Hear Beauty Expression is very costly and unreasonable, don't go there.

Sorry, can't help in term of dressing.

Hi K1yang,

We did it at "The Living Earth, Creating a beautiful you..." The beautician doesn't look like those "traditional" beautician, she quite Japanese-like- My own view only.

Her price range from S$60 to S$120 if i am not wrong, can try her out. My sis's friend who recommended us said that even her facial products are not those salon type products (Cheap cheap type), she use good stuff and not pushy llike other salon i had visited.

Just KPO to tell you only lah... I heard her husband is a pilot, she don't need the work for money but she is doing it as her own interest, that's why she does not charge customer very high price.

OK, so tired now, bye, chat with you again!

Hi, thanks for sharing!!!
May I know where is it located? I mean the address?
How long will the fake lashes last? Does it mean I have to be very careful when washing and applying make-up cos it'll fall off if I'm not careful?
Sorry for my loads of qns cos I'm new to it. ^^

Cheers,
k1yang

Hi K1yang,

You are welcome;-

The lashes can last for months, depend on individual, mine last longer that my sis's.

You need to take care of course, mainly cannot rub, no eye curler but swimming and exercise not problem lah.

I recieved a sms from that beautician saying that there is a promotion going on, you can try now if you want to.

I had posted a new post under"Promotion for eyelash extension for X'mas season" may be you can check out details over that side

Regards

Yeah, I'm interested in hearing more about eyelash extension too! How does it work? Is it like to apply fake eyelash w glue but just lasts like a month instead of a day? How do you choose what kind of volume/length to apply?

A bit of dressing tip ... I see many local people wearing real tight bras with tight t-shirts revealing their shape of body. That is really a put-off, I think. Also I've seen a rather chubby girl wearing frilled mini-skirt or those airly buggy top. :???: If you want to look slim, choose the size more carefully to avoid scenes like above. Get the one w the right size! Not too tight, not too buggy.

Other than that .. maybe depends on how you want to look slim or what your problem is. i.e. big bottom, big arm, round face, etc. But simple design usually works well. :wink:

Do you want thinner-looking calves?
1. Stay with A-line skirts.
2. Wear darker stockings than the skirt, or get tanned legs, fast.
3. Stay with heels that are two to four inches high.
4. Avoid shoes with straps around the ankles.
5. Wear wider legged pants.
Do you want to look more balanced?
1. Wear dark colors that make you look taller and slimmer.
2. Stay with solids.
3. Match the stocking colors to the shoes. Matching the stockings to the color of a skirt is not as effective.
4. Slim, long boxy coats and skirts are slimming.
5. Stay away from soft flowing materials.
Do you want to look thinner?
1. Stay away from body conscious fabric like spandex.
2. Try wool, jersey, silk or gaberdine.
3. Narrower, but not tight, pants are ideal.
4. Stay away from cuffed pants.
5. Don't cover up. Showing more skin around the neck, for example, makes you look slimmer.
Are you busty?
1. Do not wear long strands of necklaces.
2. Bigger the prints, the worse.
3. V-neck sweaters and blouses are flattering.
4. Stay away from horizontal stripes.
5. Shirts with vertical designs or large breast pockets take the attention away from the chest.

I can only add here that whatever you wear or make up it must be suited to your age and figure. My younger sister often browses this the beauty section of this forum http://www.globalthreads.com/forum and tell us that she gets some useful make up tips there. You may try that out too. :)
