I am thankful to have had the opportunity to experience a two day class with the incredible Vicky Martin at the Nouveau Contour USA location in Orlando, FL. She is the Owner of the creator of the Vicky Martin Method(tm) and the great practice breast molds. I wanted to take this particular class for a few reasons…
As some may know, my Beautiful Mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer in 2009. She had a unilateral mastectomy and like many undergoing chemotherapy she lost majority of her hair. In an effort to help my Mother and to possibly help others, I became trained and licensed in permanent cosmetics. This allowed me to provide eyebrows to those who had none, this included more than just cancer warriors. What fascinated me more was that after a mastectomy, some opted for areola and 3D nipple repigmentation. Although I was able to give my Beautiful Mother her eyebrows, we were not able to do her areola. She fought extremely hard while loving life until June 2016.
Since her passing, I have been even more determined to assist those who chose to have their areola and nipples recreated. With further education, I have learned that this service helps cancer warriors, major weight loss heroes and many others who are in need of added pigment to recreate or enhance their areola and/or nipples.
I chose to take a class with Vicky Martin after looking into her product and message. The practice breast mold is ideal for creating a 3D tattoo on a round skin-like surface. With the removable skins you can create several areolas and nipples. Since we had extra time at the end of the second day, some of us tattooed at least 3 areolas on one skin just by shifting it slightly. Vicky’s class message is more than just about tattooing, it is about empowerment for yourself and your client on many levels.
Upon completing the class, I feel even more confident in my own goals and purpose. I am thankful to be able to be in a position of not only providing this service to my community, but to someday soon provide the art of creating the areola and 3D nipples to the classroom and to the rest of the world! For some reason when I searched for pictures of this art I found very few of darker melanin. Part of my goals is to bring awareness to the entire community that this IS an option, be it they are of a lighter or darker complexion, man or woman!
The following pictures were taken to show that when applied correctly, the natural lashes will still grow with the extensions attached. During a relash/fill appointment, your trained/certified/licensed technician will GENTLY remove the old extensions and apply new ones.
This was taken during a volume ReLash appointment. The client had a 2D removed and replaced with a new 2D. (2D means two extensions attached to one natural lash, this was done using .07 diameter extensions)
If you’re in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, schedule an appointment at EyeDeux and experience the fullness of Volume Lashes!

You’ve read that correctly! Yes you can get eyelash extensions on your lower lashes that will last 2-3 weeks. These extensions can be applied one extension to one natural lash or by using the Volume Technique
by adding 2-4 extensions per natural lash. (The Volume Technique is a special lash application by certified technicians)
These extensions can come in different lengths, diameters AND colors! They are for those who are used to wearing mascara on the lower lashes and want to avoid mascara smudged under the eyes and/or to avoid the raccoon look. These extensions also can add balance to the eyes…if you are already having extensions applied to the upper lashes, ask your trained technician about having some applied to the bottom lashes.
How many extensions can be applied to the lower lashes? Like the extensions on the upper lashes, this all depends on the quality of your lower lashes. Some may have 12-20 extensions while others may have 50+ extensions applied (the max number using the Volume Technique).
How to care for the lower lashes? Again this is the same as the extensions applied to the top….it is best to avoid oil based products, avoid touching them with your fingers and to remove makeup daily.
If you are in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, you may contact the EyeDeux Studios to schedule an appointment for lower lash extensions. We have a location on the Peninsula and the Southside to service you.
Almost two years ago the latest technique with eyelash extensions started in Russia. The Owner of EyeDeux has traveled to learn this new technique and has brought it to VA! What is is called? VOLUME LASHES!
What are Volume Lashes?
2D-6D lashes or Volume lashes are thicker, fuller lashes compared to the classic semi-permanent extensions. This technique was started in Russia and has taken the Lash World by storm….EyeDeux is the FIRST in the Hampton Roads are of Virginia to offer this technique.
How does Volume eyelash extensions differ from the Classic eyelash extensions?
Classic eyelash extensions are attached to your natural lashes at a ratio of 1:1. The Volume technique allows 2-6 eyelash extensions to be attached to 1 natural lash.
Is this safe/healthy for my natural lashes?
YES! The eyelash extensions used for the Volume technique are much thinner in diameter therefore very little weight is added to your lashes including the adhesive.
How do I know I can get Volume lashes?
Consult your trained technician! Most people are able to get at least the 2D volume effect while some are able to get 6D. This is based upon the health of your natural lashes, their diameter and length.
Can I get more length with this new Volume technique?
NO! The focus is on VOLUME. If the extensions are too long, more weight is added to your natural lash and most likely to shed prematurely.
Does this process cost more?……
