At Londin Lash, we get inspiration from around the world. Some of the best lash artists come from Europe. In fact, it was Russian lash artists that created the “Russian Volume Lash”. The other day, I was creeping on one of my British inspirations, Frankie Widdows. She was using the term “bespoke”. Hmmn – I know a “WC” means washroom. “Gobsmacked” means amazed. “Fanny”? Well, you can Google that one. Just, don’t refer to a fanny pack when visiting the UK. What does “bespoke” mean? be-spoke /bəˈspōk/ 1.past of bespeak. adjective BRITISH 1.(of goods, especially clothing) made to order. For example, "a bespoke suit". Bespoke lashes are customized lashes. As Londin Lash artists, we have over 130 different lash extensions in various thicknesses, lengths, and curls to choose from. To prevent lash damage, we match the lash extensions to your natural lash strength. Next, we look at the shape of your eye as well as how it is positioned relative to your eyebrows and other facial features. We’ve got all sorts of tricks to make a small eye look larger, reduce the look of a hooded lid, improve a droopy eye, and more. Sometimes, we’ll even use different lashes from eye to eye to make your eyes look balanced. Book an appointment or call Londin Lash. We’d love to bespoke your lashes.
Clean lashes last longer! It just takes following a few simple steps to help keep your lashes looking their best!First 24 hours Do not get your lashes soaking wet. Avoid hot and sweaty situation like hot yoga, saunas, hot tubs, and swimming pools. Cleanse Every Evening Your extensions need a gentle washing every evening. This will remove any natural skin oils as well as dust that has accumulated during the day. We recommend using a foaming cleanser like Lash Collection’s Eyelash & Brow Cleanser. The cleanser is available in a 3ml sachet or 50ml bottle. Add 3ml to a 60ml foaming bottle. Fill the bottle with either distilled or cooled boiled water. Shake the bottle to mix. Squirt a walnut sized portion of foam into the palm of your hand. Load a small fan brush with foam. Cleanse your lash line brushing in the direction of the lashes. Don’t scrub from side to side. Rinse and then pat dry. You can also use a hair dryer set on low and cool to dry your lashes. It makes them fluffy.:) Your lashes will love a regular light brushing with a spoolie. Avoid Oil Based Products Limit the use of gel and liquid eyeliners which will weaken the bond between the extension and your natural lash. Avoid any make up around the lash line. Oil based products will weaken the glue. If you are unsure about a product, ask your lash stylist. Avoid Mascara Never use mascara on volume lashes. Mascara will close the volume fans. We don’t recommend using mascara on classic eyelash extensions. If you want to use mascara on your lower lashes, make sure that the mascara is extension safe. Be Kind to your Lashes Don’t rub or tug your extensions. Be gentle when you cleanse the eye area. Sleep on your back or side keeping your lashes off the pillow. Splurge on a silk pillow case. Great for your hair, great for your skin, and great for your lashes! Book Your Fill Get your classic lashes filled every 3 weeks. Volume lashes need to be filled every 3-4 weeks. Popular appointment times such as evenings can fill several weeks ahead. We want you to be delighted with your lashes! Please call or text (306)244-3070 if you have any questions or concerns!
The first twenty-four hours are critical in keeping your lashes full and beautiful as long as possible.
Eyelash extension glue cures rather than dries. It takes about twenty-four hours for the bonds to be strong and flexible. If there is too much moisture, “shock-curing” happens. The bonds are less flexible. In extreme cases, the glue may even appear grey.
That’s why Londin Lash has the 24-hour No Water Rule.Continue reading

The eyes are the window of the soul… English ProverbMy obsession with eyes started young… Grade three to be exact. I “borrowed” my mom’s mascara, hid it in my backpack and then got on the school bus. When I got to school, I bee lined for the girl’s washroom and applied a subtle coat of mascara. There was an art to this. The look had to natural enough to avoid detection by my teachers and parents, but dramatic enough to make those baby blue’s pop. Continue reading
