One of the newest trends in the beauty world is eyelash extensions. Many people have tried out this treatment which involves taking semi-permanent glue and attaching a type of fake lashes right to the lash line. This is perfect for anyone who relies on false eyelashes every day but doesn’t want to deal with the time consumption. It’s also perfect for someone who may have very few natural lashes and wants something that will make their eyes pop.
The goal of eyelash extensions is to make sure you don’t have to worry about putting on mascara or falsies. It’s the beauty product of the future. Dove conducted a survey and found that seven in 10 women say that a “beauty product” is anything that makes them more confident.
For many, the idea of having fake eyelashes semi-permanently glued to their eye can be a bit intimidating. However, it’s actually a very simple and painless process that gives you your ideal lash look for weeks at a time.
If you are looking to get them put on, but aren’t really sure what to expect, here are some things you need to know.
The Two Types of Eyelashes
When you are getting eyelash extensions, your lash artist at your spa will give you the choice of which material you want to go with. You can choose between synthetic and authentic Siberian mink lashes. Each lash comes in any size from 6mm to 17mm. After choosing your material, the lash artist at your spa will start to apply them with the semi-permanent glue. Don’t worry, though. The glue will not irritate your eye or damage your natural lashes.
The Timespan of Eyelash Extensions
After the lashes are applied, which takes about two hours to do, you don’t have to worry about getting them touched up for about two or four weeks. After that time period, you can revisit your spa to get your lashes fixed up to look good as new.
Will Eyelash Extensions Blind You?
There is no need to worry! Getting eyelash extensions put on will not blind you! Your eyes will be closed the entire time and the lash artist at the spa is specially trained to keep you comfortable and out of pain.
Eyelash extensions help people feel as if they don’t have to wear extra makeup or put on false lashes. The painless procedure gives people the confidence they need to step out of the door without makeup on and makes people feel better about themselves.
