Millions of social media users worldwide turn to Snapchat every single day to keep in touch with their friends and family. As the smartphone application has become more popular, it has also become easier and more fun to use. Arguably, Snapchat’s most sought-after feature is the ever-expanding array of filters!
When filters first launched on Snapchat, users were limited to a few key players, such as the dog and the flower crown. Soon after, more special effects came into play and the “try it with a friend” feature became available. Big-name brands, including American Express and Starbucks, quickly cashed-in with custom lenses, while Snapchat released seasonal exclusives, like limited edition, holiday-themed takes on the original dog ears.
Perhaps the most-loved filters, however, are the face-enhancing ones. Snapchat debuted a range of options that smooth the skin and amplify the eyelashes. Some of the star players include the “rosy cheeks retouch” and more recently, the pink hearts.
While the beauty industry has yet to come-up with a semi-permanent airbrushed skin solution (or a way to have hearts floating above our heads 24/7), there is one aspect of Snapchat filters the professionals at Eye Design New York *have* found a filter-worth lash that lasts!
Founder and Master Technician Nadia Afanaseva developed more than 12 variations of lash extensions for Eye Design’s Manhattan studio, including the four options for volume: Natural, Glamour, Dramatic and Kim’s Effect. Each level of volume can be altered to suit an individual’s eye shape and enhance the eye’s size.
Whether a client prefers popular styles, like Doll and Cat, or more advanced styles, like Fox, Honeybee and beyond, the Eye Design team is full of experts who can create a custom look for every client.
Clients, as well as technicians, have the power to play around with different volumes, lengths and curls to create looks that they love. Styles range from completely realistic, “I-woke-up-like-this” lashes to faux mascara looks for every day to the most intense, red carpet-worthy falsies.
The best part? Eye Design’s lash extensions have a number of impressive qualities that set them apart from the rest. They are:
Although they typically last 4 to 6 weeks, many Eye Design clients tell the studio that their lash extensions last up to 8 weeks with proper care! The Fifth Avenue-based studio also offers brown and a brown/black mix for blonder clients who prefer a more subtle look over classic black lashes, which have a tendency to look too harsh on blondes with fair skin. For those who really want to make a statement, Eye Design has a range of colored lash extensions from rich jewel tones to fluorescent brights.
The Eye Design studio is open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Phone consultations are available 7 days a week at (917) 300-0317 via call or text.
