If the shape of our eyes brings allure to our face, then the length of our eyelashes adds prominence to our facial features. This love affair with long lashes is not recent especially once we learn that the mascara was one of the first make-up products to ever exist.
False eyelashes entered the cosmetic game around the early part of the 20th century and there has been no looking back ever since. However, modern eyelash extensions introduced in the 2000s in Korea have taken fluttery lashes to a whole new level. With individual hairs attached to your existing eyelashes using a medical adhesive grade, lash extensions come in a wide variety of styles, colors, and materials, and over the years, they have improved to become even more lightweight and comfortable to wear.
All You Need To Know About Lash Extensions
Applied strand by strand with a specially formulated adhesive to your own lashes, eyelash extensions can be customized to create depth and elongation to your eyes, all while adhering to your facial structure. Naturally, extensions will hold better on women who already have stronger lashes with a healthy growth rate. That is not to say that women with sparse hair shouldn’t opt for this solution; in fact, the success rate depends on how you take care of your extensions after they are applied. Following after-care guidelines to a T and staying on top of touch-up sessions will allow your lash extensions to last indefinitely.
Look Good, Feel Good
Everyone loves a genuine compliment once in a while, and with long, thick full eyelashes framing your face, you are bound to get many. A boost of confidence is always a helpful ally and although you may be tempted to take the false eyelash route, consider it only after thorough research. Applying false eyelashes on a daily basis can not only be very time consuming but also produce an unnatural look. Not everyone is genetically blessed with luscious eyelashes but now thanks to a few hundred strands of hair and some top-of-the-line adhesive, we no longer need to bank on genetics alone. By adding volume to your natural eyelashes, lash extensions will give your eyes a dramatic look instantly making them seem bigger and brighter, and giving you a more youthful look overall.
Putting on make-up takes its fair share of time, especially when you consider eye makeup. Eyeshadow, eye pencil, eyeliner, eyebrow gel, mascara…the list of items you are required to use before you are satisfied with the intended dramatic look you were aiming for is endless. For women on the go who are aiming for an effortless natural look, eyelash extensions are ideal. It’s not just a solution for working women but all women in general who in today’s day and age seem to operate on a faster-than-lightning basis.
With eyelash extensions, you’ll be saving big on time and money. Just like that, your morning make-up routine is cut down to a matter of minutes and eventually you won’t be hoarding on eye makeup products anymore. Since extensions offer to naturally frame and emphasize your eyes, the need to curl them will gradually lessen as will the wish to apply a full face of makeup. Imagine the time you will be saving by not having to remove eye makeup on a daily basis.
A Worthwhile Experience
While getting eyelash extensions does not cost the same as buying a mascara, they actually end up saving you money in the long run. Depending on your natural rate of lash fall, a set of good quality extensions can last you for 3-4 weeks easily. During this time, you can ditch using mascara, eyeliner or fake eyelashes. You will also save on buying additional pairs of eyelashes and lash glue each month. When you add up, that’s a lot of money saved on just eye products.
It is important to maintain an active lifestyle whether you choose to swim a few laps, run a couple of miles, lift some weights, or practice yoga. And if you like hitting the gym with mascara, needless to say, you’ll end up with mascara running down your face due to the sweat and heat. With eyelash extensions, you can continue to enjoy your workouts and other physical activities with beautiful, full lashes without any worry. Just remember that you have to wait for at least 24 hours after the lashes are applied so the bond between your lashes and the glue is strong and doesn’t cause the extensions to slide right off.
Maintenance Is Easy
With lash extensions, you can easily continue to maintain your look long after the procedure. Where your initial session took somewhere around 2 hours to complete, the touch-ups are less time consuming and will have you leaving the salon with fabulous lashes in less than 30 minutes depending on the skill of your technician.
Depending on the quality of your aftercare, it is recommended to go for touch-ups every 2-3 weeks. So in order to make the most of your extensions, be sure to clean them regularly, sleep on your back whenever you get the chance, and use only lash-friendly products. Once you begin noticing that your lashes are becoming a little sparse, it’s an indication that they are falling out and require a touch-up.
For a long time, women have been using mascara, lash curlers, and false eyelashes as part of their beauty regimen to achieve dramatic, beautiful, luscious, and natural-looking lashes. Today, full, long, fluttery eyelashes for weeks on end can be achieved with a 2-hour session by an expert technician who will apply individual hairs to the base of each of your existing eyelashes. It also creates an illusion of the eye being more open and wider.
In order to ensure your experience goes smoothly, make sure that your lash professional is certified, trained by an established association, and comes well recommended. Consider how you want your final look to be. Over-the-top fake looking lashes may not be the ideal result for a longer term. Whichever the case, make sure it makes you feel fabulous.
