When was the last time you had the time or patience to apply fake eyelashes? Did you even use that eyelash curler in the past one week? So it’s no surprise that Eyelash Extensions have become a rage in recent years. Since, everyone recently has been raving about how awesome the results are, and totally worth the money, we thought why not make a list of things you should know, before jumping into bandwagon and solve the mystery of eyelash extensions!
PROS & CONS OF EYELASH EXTENSIONS
All those who have added this beauty trend on their to-do list, would actually love the fact that they won’t need to spend a lot of time with mascaras and curling their lashes anymore! One of the biggest benefits of getting these extensions done is that it’ll save you time. But, on the other hand these extensions do need maintenance, like regular brushing, special cleansing and even blow drying. In addition, eyelash extensions also need regular touch ups, which may be a bit pricey, but the results are surely amazing!
SHOULD YOU USE NATURAL EYELASH EXTENSIONS
If proper application is done, then there isn’t any damage to your lashes, or your eyes. Professional technicians should be consulted during this procedure. Although, the glue is safe, but proper care should be taken in case of any allergic reactions, pain or stinginess occurs. Furthermore, eyelash extensions take time to grow out, so if eyelashes are not taken care of, they may outgrow with the extensions attached. If you get the procedure done from a well-reputed and professional place, then the application would be pain-free.
TYPES OF EYELASH EXTENSIONS
The most widely used are mink lashes, which are claimed to be 100% natural. Moreover, they are lighter as compared to synthetic and silk ones. Extensions come in different sizes from around 6mm to 17mm. The professional technician will choose the length and thickness of the extensions depending on your natural lashes. It is recommended that you start with smaller and fewer extensions, especially if you have short or thin lashes.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO APPLY
Each lash is individually applied using semi-permanent glue. A full-set of lashes, takes around 2 hours of application time. And, during the application procedure, it is advised to keep the eyes completely closed, for safety.
FREQUENCY OF GETTING EYELASH EXTENSIONS
The natural growth cycle lasts around six to eight weeks. However, it is suggested that light touch-ups are done every 3 to 4 weeks. Moreover, it is recommended that you should never pick on or pull your extensions, as this could ruin the extensions, as well as cause damage to your natural lashes.
PRODUCTS TO AVOID
Lastly, once the procedure is complete, avoid water or anything liquid from getting near the extensions for at least 12 to 24 hours. This is recommended, as water can weaken the glue before it’s completely set and cause the eyelash extensions to fall off. In addition, avoid using oil-based makeup removers, as they can also offset eyelash extensions. Also, waterproof mascaras should not be used, as it can too lead to lashes falling out.
