A new trend has become popular in the last few years in societies with increasing demand for everyone to make themselves look good. One aspect of your feature that can transform your whole face is your eyelashes but they need to be fuller and natural. Most women desire thick and long lashes and the need to fulfill this desire has led to a number of eyelash extensions being used including false lashes, mascaras and lengthening serums. However, all of these ways to enhance lashes are natural and do not last for long.
A semi-permanent solution to getting the lashes people desire is eyelash extensions which can be made from materials such as mink, synthetic, silk or horse hair. Eyelash extensions glide onto your natural lashes, making them appear wider and fuller. They come in a variety of size options and are also customizable, giving you plenty of options to choose from.
What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions are synthetic lashes that are individually attached to your existing lashes to enhance their color, length and thickness. They makes the eyelashes appear more lifted and usually last for a period of six weeks.
Getting eyelash extensions is a very luxurious and relaxing experience and takes about an hour and a half to be completed. In order to hold down your bottom lashes, the technician will apply a patch to the under eye area. Primer will be applied to the upper eye area. Using tweezers, your eyelashes will be separated from each other. A tiny extension will be glued to each individual lash, giving them a dramatic look. Your eyes remain closed throughout the whole process and many customers use this time to nap.
Lash extensions are customizable which means that you can choose the length according to what you prefer. These can range from 9mm to 15mm. You also have the option to choose your curl. A ‘J’ curl is more on the natural side where as the ‘C’ curl is for a dramatic look. You can even do both if you are unsure. Lastly, you choose the material you want which exists in a lot of variety such as Real Mink, Faux Mink, Faux Fox, Silk or even human hair. Since Faux Mink is the most affordable, that is a more likely option for many people.
In addition, even though lash extensions are not permanent, they can be extended for months if they are taken good care of. You should avoid using oil based makeup and water around your eyes. After they will shed, lashes can be re grown. With proper care, your natural lashes will also not be damaged. Even though they can only be removed professionally, you can wait for the lashes to fall out and for your natural lashes to come back.
Moreover, one of the most asked questions around eyelash extensions is if it is safe to wear makeup after them. And the answer is yes as long as you avoid mascara and use oil free makeup removers for your lashes.
