What You Should Know About Eyelash Extensions

Have you noticed women in the gym, the office and in the street with natural, soft and long eyelashes that you can’t buy from any shop? Certainly, those were eyelash extensions, which was once reserved for the rich and famous. Extending eyelash is a process of bonding artificial eyelashes into the natural ones that can last for a number of weeks.

Eyelash extension and false lashes are different. False lashes are just strips of lashes that you apply to the skin at the base of the real eyelashes, and can be only worn for a day and must be removed. You can purchase false eyelashes at various cosmetics stores. Eyelash extensions, however, are single false lashes that are attached directly to your eyelashes and not on the skin and can last from 4 to 8 weeks and must be applied by a professional.

Types of Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash extensions are made of various materials like silk, mink, or synthetics. Mink lashes look more natural while silk lashes tend to look dramatic. They’ll also look more natural if the artist adds dimensions using a blend of lengths, degrees of taper and flat lashes instead of the typical cylindrical lashes. Flat lashes can look more dramatic and will look thicker without the added weight.

Eyelash extensions last longer than you think.

With the right amount of care, an eyelash extension can last up to 45 days. Most artists would suggest that you come back to them every 2 to 3 weeks for a retouch, however, if you want to save a bit of cash, you can extend their duration. Just make sure to be careful not to let them get wet and not to use oily products around your eyes.

The only way to get rid of them is to get them professionally removed or have them fall out naturally.

If you want to remove your lash extensions, it can be done easily and painless just like how it was attached. Most salons offer this service. But if you don’t want to spend too much money on removing it, the lash extension will fall out along with your natural lashes. The latter is a slower process, but it is free.
