IF you have recently seen an increase of before-and-after photos of women’s eyelashes on your feed, it’s because keratin lash lift has taken Cebu by storm. The semi-permanent curling and strengthening treatment, the same one that local and even Hollywood celebrities swear by, is now in the city and promises to up your no-makeup makeup game. A unique technique that combines eyelash enhancement and dyeing, it requires skills, great precision and hygiene.
Here comes Trina Mikaela Li Bi, a certified permanent makeup artist, transforming lashes from drab to fab one treatment at a time. “I’ve always been fond of makeup but I wanted something more in-depth. Anyone can learn and become a makeup artist, but not everyone can become a permanent makeup artist,”said Mikee.
Hence the decision to study here and join a masterclass conference and permanent makeup championship at The House of PMU in Hong Kong last year, where she got certified to bring and do permanent makeup in the Philippines.
Setting up shop at Le Beau Monde Salon, Rivergate Bldg., Gen. Maxilom Ave., Mikee caters to up to four clients per day, by appointment only. The procedure takes an hour to an hour and 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the lashes. In essence, the Yumi Lash Lift lifts, fixes, tints, nourishes, and coats your natural lashes with keratin, so they appear longer and fuller, without having to resort to eyelash extensions and perming, which gives unnatural-looking results. It also takes away the hassle of having to put on false eyelashes every day to achieve that camera-ready look you desire.
Yumi products are all organic, paraben-free, hypoallergenic, FDA and EU-approved. “It’s important that you know what goes into your lashes as it’s very near your eyes. With Yumi, it’s safe even for pregnant women and those who have really sensitive eyes,” Mikee explained. With results lasting for two to three months, the Yumi Lash Lift does not discriminate no matter how straight, short, or stubborn your lashes are. Mikee also does microblading, and soon, permanent eyeliner and lip tint. So why don’t you give those tubes of mascara and your trusty eyelash curler a break and try out the Yumi Lash Lift? With it, you can literally wake up like this—with a fairytale princess-like fringe, that is.
