Cosmos offers eyelash extensions that are performed only by a professionally licensed cosmetologist or esthetician. Whether you are a first time wearer or a long time lash lover, Cosmos offers options from classic full sets to full volume lash sets. Our technicians have different styles of lashing and we will help match you with the correct technician for your lashes.
Bringing a photo of the lashes that inspire you are very helpful and we do require a patch test for all guests who have never seen us at Cosmos before. We use a latex and formaldehyde free lash glue, but it’s very possible to still have a reaction so we require this as a safety technique
no less than 48 hours prior to your fill or full set to ensure your fill or full set come out flawlessly.
Types of Lash Sets
Classic Lashes – Classic lashing is a technique in which a single extension is applied to one isolated natural lash. Classic lashes are perfect for adding length and some fullness to your natural lash line.
Hybrid Lashes – Hybrid eyelash extensions are the halfway step between a classic set of eyelash extensions and a volume set. They are great for anyone with naturally fine or slightly gappy lashes, where volume fans can be placed in more sparse areas to make the lash line look fuller.
Volume Lashes – Volume lashes are a newer and more innovative technique where multiple extensions are attached to one lash to give more dimension and texture. They provide a fuller look and require more skill.
*lash fills and sets can be modified based on the technicians recommendation. If the health of your lashes cannot be maintained, our technicians will let you know and a different type of lashing may be recommended. It is also recommended for lash wearers to give your lashes small “lash vacations” periodically to ensure the health of your natural lashes.
Caring for your lash extensions
It took a lot of work to get your lashes done. Follow these steps to make them last.
- Brush and groom your lashes gently with a disposable mascara spoolie
- Try to sleep on your back or side, avoid smashing your lashes completely as you sleep.
- When using night creams/serums, apply sparingly and blot off excess- use a lash extension safe moisturizer.
- When you touch your lashes, always use upward, sweeping motions – no side to side rubbing at the lash line.
- Keep your fingers off your lashes. Everytime you touch them you are transferring natural oil and germs.
- If you choose to wear mascara – only apply to the tips and use water-based mascara that washes off easily.
- Clean your eye make-up, but be gentle with your Extensions.
- Treat your eyes gently – as if you have makeup on that you don’t want to smudge.
- Do not perm or tint lashes after lash extension application.
- Do not use a regular eyelash curler to curl Extensions (you won’t need to curl your extensions).
- Do not rub your eyes or lashes when washing your face. Clean around the eyes with a wash cloth.
- Do not pull your lash extensions, as it will take out your own lash as well!
- Do not go in a Sauna while wearing Eyelash Extensions for at least for 48hrs. Do not get them wet at all for 24hrs.
- Do not try to remove the Extensions on your own, give us a call and we will remove them without harming your natural lashes.
- Do not cut the Extensions (you may cut your own lashes).
- Never tug, twist, pick or pull at your lashes or extensions.
How often do you need lash fills?
Lash fills are typically recommended every 2-3 weeks depending on the individual’s natural hair and lash turnover rate. It is always recommended to pre-book your lash fill before leaving from your previous one or your full set and let the guest service team who schedules know when your last fill was; the longer it’s been, the longer the technician needs and you want to make sure they have plenty of time.
Please come with lashes already clean and free of any makeup, eye creams and natural oils. This will allow the technician to start their lash prep promptly and have lots of time for lashing. Dirty, uncleaned lashes will affect the bond of the natural and artificial lash and glue and you will
experience more than normal lash shedding and this will cut into the time your technician has for lashing. They may also ask you to reschedule if you come in with full makeup.
