Last Sunday I’ve had a procedure called Eyelash Lift with Semi-permanent Mascara at Permanent Makeup Manila by Pauline Ylaya.
I have been so amazed with how they turn short lashes to gorgeous ones based from their client reviews! I first learned about Permanent Makeup Manila when a Filipino youtuber Michelle Dy posted a review or vlog on her Youtube chanel about the procedure as well as what she’ve done with her eyebrows.
I literally couldn’t sleep and wanted to try both the Hyperreal 6D eyebrow embroidery as well as their lash lift with mascara. Unfortunately, since Pauline is personally the one who will do your brows, they have limited slots to accommodate clients which hopefully they can increase. But I understand how Pauline wanted to take more time with her clients to ensure that she will provide perfect looking brows because “kilay is life!”
I had my eyelashes instead. I tried to call their office/clinic and good thing Vicky her gorgeous and very kind assistant was able to schedule me that Sunday.
Here is a before photo before the procedure:
You can barely see my lashes. That is how short they are! The procedure took around 1 hour and a half to finish everything.
At first, I had to fill up an information sheet/waiver then Vicky politely asked me to move to their ‘grooming’ area where procedures are usually done.
We started at exactly 6pm. I was in a comfy seat with lights on top of my face but it is something not bothering. Then she wipped off any makeup from my eyes and around the area to ensure that I will achieve perfectly curled eyelashes. Then put white sticky patches on top of my lower lashes.
I took some photos first before I closed my eyes. During the entire procedure, I had to close my eyes so any lotion that she would need to apply on my lashes will not enter my eyes. She put a small silicone just the size of my eyes then tried to roll my eyelashes on it. I think this will serve as the rod for curling.
We waited for 7 minutes after applying the first layer of lotion then another 7 minutes after the second one. I felt like Vicky is removing carefully my lashes from the silicone a few minutes after applying the curling lotion.
After it is time to put some mascara!! Vicky said that it really depends on someone’s lash cycle up to when the lash lift and mascara will last. But on an average it would be between 4-6 weeks. Long enough though! Few weeks that you will be eye make-up free!!
When I checked myself on the mirror, I cannot believe how gorgeous it turned out. Although it is more curled that what I have expected, I know that the lift will not be the same few days from now. I also requested Vicky to put some mascara as well on my lower lashes but it is a bit painful to the eyes, especially on the left side. I am totally not sure why but according to Vicky, all her clients felt the same. But still, I really love how it turned out. I imagine how many minutes I could save by not curling my eyelashes and appying mascara everyday to look presentable. Also, no more racoon or panda eyes for me! This is indeed perfect for summer.
Here is my photo after the session:
Thank you so much, Permanent Makeup Manila for accommodating me and making me beautiful! I cannot wait to have them fix my eyebows as well.
I had my photo taken with Vicky and my daughter Mikhaila who paitenly waited for me and filming me. She is ever supportive of my vanity!
