Do you feel too lazy or pressed for time to swipe that mascara over your lashes every morning? Or are you looking for those celebrity-like gorgeous, curly eyelashes? Either way, eyelash extensions might be the answer for that much-desired mesmerizing look. But this trending beauty technique comes with a lot of serious ‘Why’s and ‘How’s. Here’s a quick rundown of the art of eyelash extension.
Are they worth it?
Absolutely! Unlike a strip of glue-on fake lashes, extensions are semi-permanent, individual lashes which are stuck to the base of your natural lashes using professional techniques. With proper after-care, eyelash extensions can last for six to eight weeks.
Are they customizable?
From material to length and shape, extensions are easily customizable and render a natural look. You can choose between 9 -15mm, the ideal being 10-12 mm. Next, you can select the curl style between a J curl and a C curl, and pick the lash material from Faux Mink, Faux Fox, Silk, Real Mink, as well as real human hair. Of these, faux mink is the most popular and affordable.
How long do they last?
With proper care, lash extensions can last up to eight weeks (two months). But it will depend on your lifestyle, weather, and how you take care of it. You can also do a touch up every two or three weeks.
How can I take care of extensions?
From the time of the procedure, you need to wait 24 hours before you can apply water or any liquid product to your lashes. Even after, while you swim or shower, you should be careful not to get the lashes wet or stay in steam for very long.
Can I wear makeup with extensions?
Yes, you can apply eye-makeup. But do avoid liquid eye products or anything creamy that can leave residue on the lash line, where the glue lies. Hence, mascaras and eyeliners are a strict no, since they can dry up the lash fiber and make them crumbly.
How can I remove them?
The best way to remove extensions is to seek professional help or let them fall out naturally.
