NOTICING the number of eyelash centers and salons offering eyelash extensions, it seems everyone wants to have longer, lusher lashes. And why wouldn’t you, since they open up the eyes and make them look more lifted and brighter. Almost everyone I know who tried eyelash extensions ended up regretting it because of the mess that falling extensions would make. For many, their real lashes sadly went with the fallen extensions, too.
Apologies for giving false lashes a bad rep, but after hearing such feedback, I wanted to wait for a better technology. Now, the same eyelash treatment that stars like the Kardashians and Nadine Lustre get is easily available in Cebu!
Mikee Li Bi Go of Winked PH now offers the Yumi Lashes treatment at Le Beau Monde Salon in Rivergate Complex, General Maxilom Ave. She went to Hong Kong to receive her training and certification from a Yumi trainer.
Yumi is not the same as eyelash perming or extensions, but uses a special technique and products by Yumi to tint and lift the lashes. It involves using pigments, proteins, and vitamins to make lashes thicker, longer, and more curled. The treatment is very nourishing, similar to getting a treatment for your hair.
Yumi tools and products are imported from France and are organic, hypoallergenic, paraben-free, and safe even for pregnant women. Products are FDA and EU approved, and only technicians trained and certified by Yumi can do this procedure.
The treatment uses a special glue and lift to encourage the lashes upward. A special tint darkens and thickens the lashes, and is followed by a keratin treatment. It is totally painless and Mikee has a very light hand, so I enjoyed the session catching up on chit-chat.
When Mikee was done, I just loved the immediate effect! See my Before and After.
Depending on what products you use on your eye area, the Yumi Lashes effect will last for about two to three months. So far, Mikee’s customers are loving it, since she’s already handled about 100 people since November. Find out more on Instagram @winkedph.
