How to use eye lash extensions

Eyelash extensions are a revolutionary new product that lengthens and thickens eyelashes and are best applied by a professional. They can be applied as clusters or single lashes and are curved to replicate the look of natural eyelashes. When applied by an experienced professional, they look and feel completely natural and are considered permanent cosmetics. Read this article to learn how to use eye lash extensions.

How long will eyelash extensions last?

A professional will attach an eyelash extension to each of your mature eyelashes. New eyelashes are not strong enough to support lash extensions and so will be left to grow naturally. Each individual eyelash extension is attached to a mature eyelash. These eyelashes shed every 60 to 90 days, depending on your growth cycle. This means that your eyelashes will be constantly falling out, taking the extensions with them. For best results, your lash extension will generally require a touch up every three to six weeks. Touch ups are best scheduled as required, which is determined by you and your professional.

How do I care for my eyelash extensions?

A modern synthetic or false lash will look long, thick and lovely. To preserve this look between touch ups, you must take care of your synthetic lashes. Be gentle with them and avoid rubbing them when possible. Precautions Also, after they have been applied, allow time for the adhesive to bond to your lashes. Do not wash your eyes, swim, or shower for at least 24 hours. You can curl your eyelash extensions, but don’t use a mechanical curler. Instead, invest in a specially made heated eyelash curler. This will help to preserve the natural look of the lashes. It is also important that you do not use waterproof or oil-based cosmetics as they can dissolve the adhesive and cause your eyelash extensions to fall off. Avoid mascara If you must use mascara, use a mascara designed for eyelash extensions and use it sparingly. Frequent mascara use may shorten the lifespan of your eyelash extensions. To help ensure the longevity of your eyelash extensions, use only water-based facial cleansers and only use make-up removers designed to remove make-up without weakening the bond between the natural lashes and the extensions. You should also avoid visiting steam rooms or saunas too often while wearing your eyelash extensions as routine exposure to heat may eventually weaken the adhesive, causing the lash extensions to fall off.

Eye shadow can be used to enhance and accentuate the natural beauty of the eyes. If used properly, it can add depth and enhance your eyes, not overwhelm them. The colour of your eyes should always be more vivid than the colour of the shadow you are using. You should always choose colours that complement the colour of your iris. Most eye shadow techniques are fairly simple, as they should be.
