What is Silk Lash?

Silk eyelashes; Unlike planting, it is a temporary application of silk honey that increases the length and density of eyelashes.

As a result of the application, which takes an average of 1 to 1.5 hours, dense and curved eyelashes are obtained.

Silk eyelash care is quite simple. Lashes fall out 1 or 2 each month and new lashes take their place. In the monthly care, new eyelashes are replaced by the spilled eyelashes and the emptied area is protected with new eyelashes.

You can repeat this process after the eyelashes, which have a life of approximately 90 days, fill their time. Eyelashes, which do not harm the eye tissue, are not damaged by bathing or make-up and maintain their permanence for a while.
