Hate Wearing Mascara?

What Exactly Are Eyelash Extensions?

Eyelash extensions offer longer and thicker looking lashes without needing any mascara or false eyelashes. Extensions are more dramatic, however, much more natural looking than their aforementioned counterparts. They are applied at a salon and are said to be semi-permanent, which means they can last a few weeks before needing any touch-ups. As a result of this, they are more expensive than their store-bought choices.

As with any enhancing beauty product, the idea behind these is to make a persons eyes the focal point of their face. The striking but, natural look that these extensions provide makes them popular with female celebrities. However, the average woman, extensions can be worn daily or reserved for special occasions.

Eyelash extensions are single, curved synthetic eyelashes, which a technician will apply onto each individual eyelash. Extensions are available in different lengths and thickness, which allows one to look more subtle to the dramatic.

You can wear these eyelash extensions when showering, swimming, sleeping and exercising. The length of time they last will depend on a person’s eyelash cycle. However, normally, natural eyelashes fall out every 90 days and a new one will take its place. This cycle means touch-ups have to be done regularly.

Mascara will not be needed when wearing these extensions. In point of fact, one of the main reasons women get these extensions is so they do not have to wear mascara every day. Mascara still can be used if so desired. But, use a water-based one which does not need too much tugging to remove it.
