Lashes By Cil | By Cil Beauty & Co | HoofddorpJanuary 13, 2017
I found the lovely By Cil Beauty & Co last year when I first moved to Holland, she is based in Hoofddorp centrum. Cil is a perfectionist at what she does and I am so glad I found her. She specializes in waxing, tanning, eyebrows, threading, and lash extensions. I have been to her for almost everything and I cannot recommend her enough.
I got my first set of individual eyelash extensions last September before I went on holidays to Spain. I never had them on before because I thought they were damaging to my own eyelashes. I was wrong. Cil told me they should last 2 weeks depending on how I looked after them. They lasted me about 4 weeks. I got a refill in October and again they lasted me another 4, 5 weeks. I never wore any eye makeup on my eyes only on the lower lashes the whole time I had the extensions. I think that is why they lasted so well on me, the fact that I wasn't cleansing around the eyes. Once my extensions were fully off I couldn't believe that there was no damage done to my own lashes. I really expected they would look bad. But they looked fine. I bought a eyelash growth serum and used it for a little while after my extensions came off, just to make sure they weren't weak.
I got my second set of lash extensions on for Christmas 3 weeks ago and I was hesitating to get them on again because my own lashes were looking okay. But I thought for Christmas why not with all the nights out. And, oh my lord I am so happy I got them on. Cil did a bit of a fuller set this time and they were really nice. I lost count of the amount of compliments I got from them. I still have them on now and they look great. I will let them naturally fall out.
It saves so much time in the morning getting ready when you have eyelash extensions on, you already look a little done up even when wearing no make-up. I loved having them on while I was on holiday back in September because I didn't need to wear any mascara.
The one thing I will say to someone thinking about getting eyelash extensions is go to someone who actually knows what they are doing. I have heard so many horrible stories of peoples eyelashes being ruined from glue and eyes been irritated. Do your research and go to someone professional.
