NEW TREATMENT – EYELASH LIFT / PERM & LASH TINTING & BLEACH

Eyelash lift / Perm

WHAT IS IT?

Both treatments are very similar;

Lash Perm – a small latex roller is used so straight eyelashes will encourage a gentle curl will give them instant length and create the illusion of bigger, brighter, ultra feminine eyes.

Lash Lift – a silicone curler that lifts lashes from the root creating the illusion of length.

The lashes are rolled and separated to help ensure a beautiful natural appearance. Perming lotion is then applied to the lashes and left for 15 minutes followed by the application of a neutraliser. This is then left for a further 15 minutes under cover. Finally, damp cotton wool is used to gently remove the roller, leaving you with enhanced curled or lifted eyelashes.  For improved effect, tint may be applied directly afterwards.

EYELASH / EYEBROW TINTING

WHAT IS IT?

Tinting involves carefully dying the lashes or brow hair with safe, natural tints, to give them a darker appearance that looks naturally luscious.
Many different eyelash and eyebrow tint colours are available, including;

  • blues
  • browns
  • chestnut
  • red
  • blacks
  • greys

I’ll select a shade that perfectly complements your skin and hair colouring. Tinting takes about 15 minutes and can last up to 6 weeks.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?

The following has had a eyelash lift and tint, and a eyebrow tint. Lashes are tinted blue/black, brows light brown.

Eyebrow Bleack & Tint

WHAT IS IT?

Lighten your eyebrow colour upto 3 shades, great to match blonde or red hair or to hide gray hair. A eyebrow bleach is applied to the eyebrows to lighten the hair colour, before tinting the hair to your required colour.

HOW DO I BOOK?

Contact Jackie on 07970 026364 or email jax@ jax-glam.co.uk .

If you are a new customer, or  have not had a tinting treatment by Jackie in the last 6 months you will need to carry out a patch test.  I use a Colourstart patch test, which can be posted to you.   It’s a little black sticker which needs to be stuck on your skin for 48hours before the treatment to ensure you do not have any allergies to the tint.

Why airbrushing?

When you spray using an airbrush it atomises the product making the particles of make-up tiny. This is why airbrush make-up is used in HD TV and film. The particles in the make-up become much smaller than when it is conventionally applied and therefore less visible. HD TV picks up absolutely every imperfection! There are also hygiene benefits to spraying. When we use a conventional brush or our fingers there is potential to spread bacteria and germs across the face. By spraying Airbase make-up onto the face we can avoid this.


What about its staying power?

The silicone in the make-up makes Airbase incredibly long lasting and waterproof (and tear proof!). As silicone is heat resistant you don't get shine through as you can with water or oil based make-ups, and stands up to the intense heat of studio lighting and in bright sunshine... Airbase really does last all day.

You can build upon each layer to create the perfect  coverage .  Silicone foundation really does stand the test of time! It is this that helps give Airbase Make-Up its unrivalled durability. That means that your Airbase Make-Up application lasts all-day making Airbase perfect for bridal beauty - providing unrivalled durability


Luxurious feel and lightweight on the skin

It allows skin to breathe  Airbase Foundation does not clog pores and allows skin to breathe.  Last but not least, Airbase Silicone Foundation feels luxurious on the skin and is incredibly lightweight.

CND (Creative Nail Design) first created Shellac back in May 2010 and revolutionised the nail industry.  Since then, it has become one of the most popular nail treatments..

Shellac is a hybrid,  (meaning half nail polish and half gel)  The product is applied like a polish to the natural nail  (or over extensions)  and is cured via a UV  light. Because the product is cured, there is zero drying time.

When applied and removed correctly Shellac should not cause any damage to your nails - here are some for looking after your Shellac ...

No matter how many weddings I do, I am always really honoured to be a part of a brides special day.

I can honestly say I have really enjoyed meeting everyone I have shared their wedding day with, and I really hope my brides enjoyed their day as much as I enjoyed the morning.

After being a regional finalist in 2016, I was delighted to be nominated in 2017 and would like to thank each and every one who voted for me.  However unfortunately I didn't get through this year :-(

The best thing about being involved in the awards is getting to see my scores, and all the lovely comments from my brides.

You've probably been planning your big day for at least a year, you've booked the venue, brought the dress etc - but have you thought about the wedding morning itself?

Your wedding day starts as soon as you wake up, so the main thing is for you to have a lovely and special morning, think about;
  • Where you want to spend it - Would you prefer to be at home, your parents house, hotel or the wedding venue? 
  • Who you want to spend it - your mum, dad, bridesmaids, pets, partner? A wedding morning can be quiet emotional so make sure you have people who will be there for you.
  • Logistically will your love ones be staying with you the evening before?  If so - remember to factor in some time during the evening before to socialise or have a pre-wedding pamper party so you all have your nails done ready for the big day.   If not - bear in mind where your wedding party lives or if they have children which may effect what time they can join you on the wedding morning. 
  • How far from the wedding venue are you staying? Research any local events taking place on your wedding date, which may effect traffic on the morning of your wedding. 
  • If you are having a photographer, Will they be able to take photos of both your and your partners wedding preparations easily? Will they be able to be present and capture the look on your parents or friends faces when they see you in your dress, before they have to leave to get to the venue? 
  • Is there parking for your wedding car, wedding party, forest, photographer and hair / makeup artist?
