If you hate getting ready in the morning and you are looking for new ways to spend a little more time sleeping instead, eyelash extensions could be a good solution for you. Eyelash extensions will be attached to your natural lashes, and your eyes will look fabulous even before you get out of bed!
Before you get started, here are 9 things you need to know about eyelash extensions.
1. You can customize the look of your extensions
Eyelash extensions look much better than strips of fake lashes. In fact, they can look as natural or as dramatic as you want them to, since you will be able to fully customize their length and their curl.
2. Eyelash extensions are made with different materials
Eyelash extensions can be made of silk, mink, faux mink, or even real human hair. Different colours are available, so don’t hesitate to ask the advice of your lash technician to find the right type of extensions for you.
3. Anyone can apply eyelash extensions
Anyone with a pair of tweezers and an eyelash extension kit can apply eyelash extensions, but that doesn’t mean you should let them. It’s important to get your extensions applied by a professional who knows what she is doing.
4. Most women enjoy the process of getting eyelash extensions
Getting eyelash extensions can take an hour or two, which is great because most women find the process really enjoyable. You will lie down in a bed and close your eyes, while your lash technician applies the extensions to your natural lashes.
5. It’s important to take good care of your eyelash extensions
When your eyelash extensions are in place, you have to avoid heat or water for 24 hours. You also need to avoid rubbing your eyes, or pulling at your brand new eyelashes.
6. It’s possible to wear makeup when you have extensions
If you don’t want to give up your eye makeup routine, you can still wear makeup when you have your eyelash extensions on. However, you should avoid oil-based products and removers, as they can damage your extensions.
7. You should avoid mascara when you have extensions
You should avoid using mascara with your extensions, as it can shorten their lifespan. Anyway, when you see how luscious your new eyelashes look, you probably won’t see the point of using mascara anymore.
8. Eyelash extensions can last for more than a month
Eyelash extensions won’t last forever, but if you take good care of them, they could last up to a month and a half before you need to get a new set of extensions. It’s always possible to get touch-ups whenever you need them.
9. You should not try to remove your eyelash extensions
If for some reason you want to get rid of your extensions, don’t try to remove them on your own. Wait until they fall off with your natural lashes, or ask a professional to remove them for you.
