If you are looking for a way to make your eyes stand out, and give you that permanent beautiful “mascara” look, you might be interested in eyelash extensions. There are many aesthetical benefits to these extensions, and if you want to know more, just keep reading.
What are lash extensions?
In simple words, lash extensions are professionally applied on each one of your natural lashes. They are semi-permanent and look very natural, unlike what you might have had in mind. Extensions will make your lashes darker and longer, and thus give you that natural pop that your eyes need.
Eyelash extensions can make a big difference
The overall price of lash extensions will vary on the style as well as the place that does them. So, you should do your research about the technicians in your area, their experience and the satisfaction of the clients.
Where to get them done?
Listening to recommendations from your friends is a good idea! However, you should never visit a place that you have never heard of or have not done research for. It is important that you take your time and do proper research, taking into consideration their experience, self-introduction and reviews from previous clients.
Discuss with your technician the different lash extensions that you could get. The first appointment of lash extensions can last up to two hours and it will definitely be the longest. In most cases, clients will bring their music to listen to while the technician works on their lashes.
The lash extension procedure
First, you will be asked to lie down on your back and just get comfortable. The technician will then shield the lashes on the bottom with pads, tape or stickers. During the eyelash extension procedure, you will have to keep your eyes closed, so be prepared to have your eyes closed for a long period.
It will take some time to get used to a moving metal object around your eyes, but it is important that you do not move too much. The procedure is very gentle, so you might not even feel anything. In a lot of cases, clients tend to just doze off. Just find a way to relax yourself with your eyes closed, and enjoy the whole process.
The lash extension process is long
The aftercare is simple
After your appointment is done, you are not allowed to let your extensions get wet for a day, which means 24h. Try to not be in any humid environments. To preserve the extensions, you should keep them clean and detangle them gentry if you are planning to wear eye makeup. Do not use oil-based makeup remover, as that will most likely remove the lashes as well.
There are many things to be considered, but at the end of the day this is a very simple procedure that will make your lashes stand out. It will look like you have naturally dark and long lashes, and you will not have to wear mascara at all.
