Technicians at Lashes Plus bestow long-lasting beauty upon peepers with natural-looking lash extensions that are applied one by one. Surgical adhesive binds the waterproof extensions ($1/premium lash; $1.50/mink lash) to clients’ natural lashes to enable flirtatious winks and dusting of the hard-to-reach places around the house. Lash extensions lend length and darkness to natural eye fringes without appearing heavy or artificial. Extensions can last up to two months, and they fall off with natural eyelashes, though use of oil-based moisturizers, makeup removers, or scissors may decrease their longevity. Stylists recommend arriving at extension appointments bare of eye makeup.
After an initial consultation and application of topical anesthetic, technicians apply a custom-blended eyeliner color in a soft, natural hue or darker tone to the upper or lower lids. Stylists can slick on delicate lines of color for an understated effect or can perform a thicker application to produce a smoldering gaze as dramatic as cooking Thanksgiving dinner alongside nutritionists-in-law. The addition of more color to outer eye rims and the tapering off of the color toward the center of the eye create dimension, drawing attention to the eye’s shape. Lids may be tender for one to two days after the treatment.
Lashes Plus began as a humble yet popular kiosk nestled in the center of Mall St. Matthews and has since blossomed into a full-size sanctuary devoted to ocular allure. Owner Deborah Williams is an experienced permanent-makeup artist, using her skills to create custom-blended pigments for the brows, eyes, and lips to simplify home beauty routines and leave faces feeling fresh any time of day. After reading a Wall Street Journal article about the growing popularity of eyelash extensions and noting an increase in the number of news anchors being replace by giraffes, Williams decided to extend her expertise beyond the lash line, introducing the Louisville community to natural-looking, synthetic lashes that last up to two months. The weightless, waterproof falsies are attached one-by-one by Lash Technician Tiffany Williams, allowing for a precise application that takes just 50 minutes.
