February 14, 2024 // Alisa Carrasco

However, some trends have a staying power that transcends time, capturing the hearts and imaginations of beauty enthusiasts around the globe. One such trend making waves in 2024 is the popularity of brown eyelash extensions.

Gone are the days when black lashes reigned supreme. In recent years, there has been a shift towards embracing more natural and earthy tones in beauty, and brown eyelash extensions perfectly encapsulate this aesthetic. From soft and subtle to bold and dramatic, brown lashes offer a versatility that appeals to a wide range of tastes and preferences.

So, what exactly is driving the craze for brown eyelash extensions in 2024? Let's delve into some of the reasons behind their popularity:

  1. Natural Look: In an era where authenticity is celebrated, many individuals are opting for beauty treatments that enhance their natural features rather than completely altering them. Brown eyelash extensions mimic the look of natural lashes, seamlessly blending with your existing hair color for a subtle yet striking enhancement.

  2. Softness and Warmth: Unlike black lashes, which can sometimes appear harsh or overly dramatic, brown lashes exude a sense of softness and warmth. They add depth and dimension to the eyes without overwhelming the rest of your features, making them perfect for both everyday wear and special occasions.

  3. Complementing All Skin Tones: One of the greatest appeals of brown eyelash extensions is their ability to complement a wide range of skin tones. Whether you have fair, medium, or dark skin, there's a shade of brown that will beautifully enhance your eyes and flatter your complexion.

  4. Versatility: From classic brown to rich chocolate hues, the world of brown eyelash extensions offers a variety of shades to suit every preference. Whether you prefer a natural-looking enhancement or a more dramatic effect, there's a brown lash style to match your desired aesthetic.

  5. Low Maintenance: One of the biggest perks of eyelash extensions, in general, is their low maintenance nature. With brown lashes, you can wake up each morning looking effortlessly put together, eliminating the need for mascara or other eye makeup products.

  6. Timeless Appeal: While trends may come and go, the timeless appeal of brown eyelash extensions ensures that they'll remain a staple in the beauty industry for years to come. Whether you're a trendsetter or a classic beauty enthusiast, brown lashes offer a timeless elegance that never goes out of style.

The rise of brown eyelash extensions in 2024 represents a shift towards embracing natural beauty and earthy aesthetics. With their versatility, softness, and ability to complement a wide range of skin tones, brown lashes have captured the hearts of beauty enthusiasts around the world. Whether you're looking to enhance your everyday look or make a statement on a special occasion, brown eyelash extensions are a must-try trend for 2024 and beyond.

How to take care of lash extensions.


Proper hygiene prevents premature lash shedding and preserves your lashes. Washing eyelids and lashes maintains the integrity of lashes by removing dirt, oil, and makeup. A cleansing ritual disrupts any bacteria and pollutants that can clog follicles. We recommend our multi-use, must-have TLC Cleanser, which delivers the best treatment and 3 in 1 formula for all-over cleansing.


You should avoid waterproof, water-resistant or oily products, including makeup and removers. We recommend:

Lash Affair Liquid Eyeliner Pen it contains a highly pigmented formula for long-lasting and safe wear. Available in black or brown, this pen’s fine tip applicator provides an easy, smooth and precise application.


Glamorous lashes require some upkeep!

Brush your lashes daily. Brushing your lashes in between fills helps make them look fuller and keeps your lash fans from closing. Make sure to be gentle, especially at the root, to keep the bases from lifting Plan to refill your lashes after 50% have shed and avoid reaching 40% extensions or less. Full sets typically last three to four weeks, so make sure that you properly care for your lashes, monitor retention and be mindful of the time in between fills when scheduling your next appointment. Depending on your shedding cycle you may need to come in earlier.


Sleeping on your back is the best way to preserve your lashes; however, if you’re a side or stomach sleeper, using a silk pillowcase will help the life of your lashes. Fibers in a traditional cotton pillowcase can snag and pull your extensions. Sleeping on silk, helps prevent premature shedding.

For added protection, slip on a beauty sleep mask to safeguard your lashes from rubbing.

Follow these tips and you will be sure to get the best lasting results for your beautiful lash extensions.


Will eyelash servic​es take over mascara?

November 10, 2019 // Alisa Carrasco

Mascara has always been the affordable, go-to makeup product for anyone wanting to create the illusion of full, long, dark lashes. On the other hand, lash artists and their clients know that lash services, such as extensions and lash lifts, are the most dependable methods for those who are serious about creating a hassle free , beautiful daily look.

Recently the Business of Fashion released a report delving into why mascara is seeing its first big sales drop in decades. One major reason may lie in consumers turning to lash treatments for longer-lasting lash effects.

Mascara is an $8.1 billion industry, growth is expected to slow over the next three years from 4% to 2%. Did you know that the product lines of many young, popular cosmetics companies, such as Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty, Huda Kand Kylie Jenner’s juggernaut, Kylie Cosmetics, do not feature mascara AT ALL

Lash treatments like lifts, extensions, and tinting are skyrocketing in popularity. The appeal lies in the fact that these treatments last for weeks and give clients a beautiful natural look without needing to apply product every day. It’s becoming a much more integrated part of the everyday women’s beauty routines. 52% of women in a recent survey reported that they visit a salon for an eyelash “extension or tinting” every four to six weeks?

People are willing to invest in lash lift or lash extensions, because they know it then makes their routine in the morning that much easier. So, is mascara going away? Maybe but with theses innovated lash services you will be able to have beautiful lashes everyday with out the hassle of applying makeup.

By the time you get to bed, you're not thinking about your lashes. Without a second thought, you toss the covers aside and fall face first into the pillow.

But wait your lashes are screaming in agony as you toss and turn on your cotton pillow case , ripping them out one by one. You wake in the morning to find a lash graveyard on your pillowcase, and you wonder who's to blame. Is your lash artist , the environment? You wonder if you're not a good candidate for lashes. Then you look closer at your pillow and see the makeup you neglected to remove the night before, and then it hits you, "It's me! I did this! But how do I stop!?" Don't worry, there is hope. Here are some options for you.


Ideally, if you can manage to sleep on your back, that is the preferred position for all eyelash extension wearers. If you have to be on your side or stomach, then a silk pillow case is a great solution for you. The cotton fibers in your traditional pillowcase snag on lashes due to the dragging you experience as you wipe your face across the pillow.

This is why silk or silk blend pillows cases are recommended to lash clients and are also used for wrinkle prevention as they lessen the dragging factor on your skin and lashes while you sleep.


A beauty Sleep Domed Eye Mask

This mask is perfect for all lash clients. No matter what side you sleep on, it has indents over the eyes to avoid rubbing on your precious eyelash extensions. It also blocks out light to give you a longer, restful night of sleep.

By using one or both of these items, your lashes will feel safe and secured. And you won't have to worry about your lashes when you're too tired to care about anything but catching some sweet sleep. 

Lash Lift Vs Lash Extensions

July 14, 2019 // Alisa Carrasco

Which one’s better? At Lash Affair we love  ALL things lashes, so we truly believe  lash lifts and extensions are a great service. Both lash services are perfectly safe, maintain the health of your lashes, and ultimately help you cut down the time you need to get ready in the morning due to not needing mascara or lash curlers. But we also want you to have all the facts, so here is the pros and cons of both

 When it comes to customizing lashes for every client’s unique features, lash lifts have nothing on extensions. The sheer variety of lash styles means everyone can have a completely individualized set. Whether you want a more natural look or want to bring the drama, lash extensions can help you create it all!

 Lash lifts allow us to choose the size of the curl your lashes can handle, but they can not  be styled to enhance, or balance facial features the way extensions can. That doesn't mean lash lifts aren’t beautiful. A lash lift will curl your lashes, open up your eyes and last a lot longer than extensions.


Lash extensions can take 1.5-2 hours to apply depending on the type of lash set. With a lash lift lash you often be in and out of the studio  in about an hour.


While lash extensions can be applied in ways that look ultra-natural, lash lifts rely on what nature gave you. If your lashes are naturally thick, long, and  voluminous, lash lifts can appear nearly as dramatic as extensions, especially when paired with a lash tint to darken and define your lashes. Because it's your natural lashes being curled, you're free to use whatever eye makeup you wish. You get a  semi-permanent lift and curl while keeping your natural lashes damage-free. If your lashes are short, thin, and sparse, a lash lift won’t do much to change their appearance compared to a full, custom set of extensions.


Since lash extensions are placed on the natural lashes, they follow every client’s natural lash growth cycle, meaning that they fall out as the natural lash grows out. To maintain lash extensions, you should be coming back for a fill appointments every 2-4 weeks. Lash lift last 6-8 weeks.


It’s no secret that lash lifts tend to cost less than a set of lash extensions. Lash lifts are typically priced around $90 . Lash extensions will normally range between $275-350

Ultimately, which service you choose should depend entirely on your lashes, your style expectations, the time you have to maintain your lashes, and the price point you are comfortable with. Once you find the right lash treatment you  will be hooked. You will love how great your lashes look every day. Makeup will  takes only a couple of minutes because your face already looks done-up upon waking.


The Best Oil-Free Concealers for Eyelash Extensions

March 23, 2019 // Alisa Carrasco

You’ve been diligent in caring for your lashes—you brush and wash them daily but your lashes are popping off and you don’t know why. If this sounds like you, your beauty regime may be to blame. Oil-based products are your lashes worst enemy—and many moisturizers, eyeliners, foundations, and concealers are oil-based. Oils can break down adhesive bonds, causing extensions to pop off the natural lash.

To keep your lashes happy—we have found 3 extension-safe concealers

Nars soft matte complete 

This concealer has an oil-free formula that is silky smooth. The light, buildable formula goes on easily and is pigmented enough to hide dark circles and blemishes. It comes in 16 shades. The soft matte finish leaves your skin looking soft and natural

Too Faced Born This Way

The oil-free formula gives full coverage, easily hiding dark circles and blemishes. Formulated with hydrating coconut water, this liquid concealer manages to stay smooth on dry skin, and still provide a velvety finish on oily complexions. It comes in 16 shades.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof 

Tarte describes this as a full-coverage concealer. It has a beautifully light, creamy consistency that feels more like a tinted moisturizer. This finish is dewy, with no hint of caking or chalkiness. It has the perfect amount of pigment to conceal under-eye circles while still looking natural. It is also waterproof!

It comes in ten shades. 

Maintaining a beautiful set of lashes doesn’t mean compromising the things you love about your cosmetics. These oil-free concealers still delivers on hydration, coverage, and finish—all without compromising your lashes.

3 Lash Protection Tips for Winter Weather

You have chosen to invest in or pamper yourself with beautiful eye lash extensions. Winter time can be​ enjoyable, whether we choose to ski, relax by a warm fire or cuddling with your loved ones. Fact is, cold weather can be harsh on your lashes.

Let's protect those lashes!

February 23, 2019 // Alisa Carrasco

#1 Avoid Using Oil-Based Eye Make-Up

Oil-based make-up can interfere with the adhesive bond of your lash extensions. Oil-based eye products and cream-based eyeliners are often hard to wipe off, which can cause a snag or even pull out lash extensions. To avoid this, use products like liquid eyeliner and powder-based eyeshadows. These products are long-lasting, easy to take off, and most importantly, extension-safe.

#2 Cleanse Daily

Exposure to winter elements like wind and snow can destroy extensions and irritate the skin, making it crucial to cleanse with TLC 3-In-1 Cleanser. Cleansing the lashes is important to keep makeup and oil away from breaking down the adhesive bond on the extensions. This 3-in-1 cleanser will remove makeup and any other debris from the skin and lashes.

#3 Cleanse Lashes After Being in the Hot Tub, Sauna, and Steam Room

What better way to relax then being in a hot tub, sauna or steam room. However, you will also be exposed to germs, debris and other pollutants. Be sure to cleanse your lashes after each use.  

These tips will ensure that your beautiful lash extensions last as long as possible.
