Applying mascara is such a pain – if it’s not smudging and running down your face, it’s clumping and making you look like Tammy Faye Bakker after a rough night. Lash extensions are the latest time-saving solution to the daily make-up chore.
Lash extensions? Imagine hair extensions on your eyelashes, and you’ll have the idea. Local skin care specialist Marcia Walden laboriously adds 20-30 extensions to your existing lashes to give you a fuller, very natural look that will last for two months or more.
“This is the latest thing in NY and LA – but very few places are doing this in the Bay Area,” says Marcia, a facialist and make-up artist who has been in the business for 25 years.
“Depending on the number of lashes and the color, I can create a variety of looks ranging from very subtle to dramatic.
“It’s great for people who simply want the convenience of not having to constantly apply mascara.
“It’s also perfect for emotional occasions like weddings when you know you’re going to tear up and smudge. With lash extensions, you’ll look great through the entire event and your honeymoon.”
At her comfortable studio on Solano Avenue, you lie back while she applies gel packs below your eyes. Using magnifying glasses, she carefully applies an extension to each lash, doing one at a time, judging the placement and spacing to achieve the results you want.
“People’s main concerns are safety and hygiene,” Marcia explains. “As a skin care specialist, I have been waxing, tweezing and tinting lashes for 25 years, so I am very practised in working around people’s eyes. And when it comes to hygiene, I never use anything twice, and I scruplulously sterilize every instrument.
“Some people simply fall asleep while I am working – which is perfect.
