They say that the eyes are the window to the soul. If this is true, having beautiful eyes is essential. Beautiful eyelashes will not only draw attention to the eyes, but they will enhance the overall beauty of the face. Eyelashes are an important part of aesthetic beauty. With permanent eyelash extensions, long lashes no longer have to be a fantasy.
Permanent eyelash extensions, when applied properly, can last for up to two months and sometimes longer. Permanent eyelash extensions fall out with the natural growth cycle of lashes. The natural growth cycle of eyelashes grow and fall out in cycles every 60-90 days. This is a constant cycle always set in motion. It is normal to lose a few eyelash extensions during the first week of wearing them, but it will not be much. When properly cared for and maintained, touch ups are only needed every four weeks.
Proper care and maintenance of eyelash extensions includes not exposing the lashes to any form of water or steam for the first 24 hours. No oil-based products should be used around the eyes. Water-proof mascaras must always be avoided when wearing eyelash extensions. Avoid tugging on or rubbing the eye area. Be extremely gentle with the eyelash extensions. Following these steps will definitely maintain the extensions and prolong them.
When having eyelash extensions applied for the first time, expect for it to take anywhere from 90-150 minutes. After this, touch-ups should take approximately 15 minutes. The process is painless and relaxing. The client rests comfortably while the extensions are applied by a skilled professional. Lash extension specialists receive special training and are certified, so rest assured that quality and competence are being received.
The procedure itself is technical and meticulous. Eyelash extensions are applied one at a time to the existing natural lashes. They are bonded with a special adhesive glue (which is completely invisible with the finished result). It is imperative that during the first 24 hours of having eyelash extensions applied, they are treated with extreme care and very gently.
Permanent eyelash extensions truly look so beautiful that mascara is not necessary. However, for individuals who really wish to apply mascara, it can still be applied. A water based mascara will be mandatory when applying it to the eyelash extensions. Some eyelash extension brands carry their own lines of mascara. Ask your lash extension specialist for details.
Permanent eyelash extensions are an excellent alternative to wearing false lashes because they do not feel as heavy or irritating on the eyes. Additionally, they also look much more natural. The line of false lashes can be clearly seen, but with permanent eyelash extensions, no one will be able to tell for sure that they are not in fat natural lashes. This has many benefits. Makeup will look more beautiful when the eyes are accented with beautiful, full, luxurious lashes. Long lashes open up the eyes and provide a feminine, sexy look.
There are many different choices when it comes to eyelash extensions. There are different styles with some looks being more dramatic and some being more under-stated. Eyelash extensions are great to have applied before getting married or any special occasion, however, they are also excellent for every day wear. For busy lifestyles, eyelash extensions are a perfect choice as they require little maintenance and mascara will no longer be needed. Beautiful lashes truly have an eye opening effect and make the entire face look more attractive.
When selecting an eyelash extension specialist to receive services from, it is important to make sure that they are certified. This is important because when eyelash extensions are applied by untrained and/or unprofessional individuals, unsatisfactory results can be seen. This can also cause damage to the natural lashes. With that said, simply doing some research and asking to see the specialist to see a certificate will avoid any problems.
Eyelash extensions can be a beautiful addition to your beauty routine. They can provide instant drama and cut down on daily makeup application times. Batting your lashes has never been so fun!
