I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to makeup but there’s one thing I’ve always wanted: longer lashes. I’ve worn false lashes once in my life and I absolutely hated it. Not only was it uncomfortable, but I couldn’t even see anything. I’m not willing sacrifice that much just for feathery lashes. Lately, I’ve been considering another alternative, either a perm or eyelash extensions. The process is definitely longer and more tedious, but they’re more natural and last longer. Because of this, I’ve scoured the Internet to find a few spots that have lash services, including some that offer colored extensions. Keep reading if you want to try it out too.
If you want something more natural, I suggest getting a perm instead of extensions. This will also open your eyes up more and make your process of getting ready much faster. When you’re in a rush, you can basically leave them be and head out the door quicker. Located at Estancia, 1605 Meralco Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
For special occasions, go for dramatic extensions. Oh La Lash!’s vixen service will give you long lashes, perfect if you want them to be spotted even in photos. While their other extensions have a set number of lashes ranging from 30 to 130, this one is unlimited. Yes, please! Located at 3/F Glorietta 2, East Drive Ayala Center, Makati City.
Browhaus’ Lash in Bloom service “gives you beautiful lashes that frame your eyes to make them appear larger and darker.” Under that, they have three different kinds. For Cluster Lash, they are applied to your eyelids, which give an eyeliner effect. Now you’ll be able to skip two steps in your makeup routine. Located at 2/F The Piazza at Serendra, Store Space 2C13, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
Get the colored lashes look minus the mascara. If you want just a hint color, they have a service that adds 10 pieces of tinted extensions. Watch the video above to see the process of adding pink lashes. For someone with pink hair, I really want this. Located at 2/F S Maison, Marina Way Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.
For something in between natural and over the top, try our their Lush extension set. It uses 105 pieces per eye. There are also three styles to choose ranging from natural to cats eye. The latter is flared at the edges so I suggest going for this one. And, like Kiyos, they also have colors like green, violet, and blue. Located at SM Mall of Asia, J.W. Diokno Boulevard, Pasay City.
Néw Lounge’s Doll Eye Volume lashes are thick and wispy. As the name suggests, you’ll look just like your favorite doll you had when you were younger. If you want even more volume, try getting some lower lash extensions as well. Located at 3/F Admiralty Realty Corp Building, 1101 Alabang Zapote-Road, NBP Madrigal Business Park Ayala Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
Go for Ayumi’s classic extension set and add in some extras. They also offer ombre colored lashes, glitter lashes, and Swarovski lashes. Mix these in for special occasions like partis, festivals, or for when you just need a pick me up in the middle of the week. Located at 117 Trans-Phil House, Chino Roces Avenue corner Bagtikan Street, Makati City.
This process uses all natural ingredients so you don’t have to worry about harming your eyes. It’s an hour and a half session that combines a keratin lash lift, tinting, and gloss. You’ll be leaving the studio wanting to bat your eyelashes at everyone just to show them off. Located at Unit 114 G/F Greenbelt 1, Paseo de Roxas, Ayala Center, Makati City.
