If you're new to the world of eyelash extensions, you may be wondering how long a lash fill takes. It's logical to think that it would take less time than getting a full set of extensions, and that's true. A lash fill usually takes around an hour, while the initial eyelash extension appointment usually takes two to three hours. The main objective of a lash fill is to avoid any activity that could cause natural eyelash loss, as well as to avoid certain types of makeup and cleansers.
During the appointment, your technician will apply extensions to some of your natural eyelashes that you didn't have extensions attached to before, ensuring that all of your eyelashes remain healthy and strong. They will also fill in your natural eyelashes with eyelashes of different thicknesses. When it comes to choosing the material for your extensions, the most common options are silk and synthetic mink. Silk is a little brighter and stands out more, while mink is more wavy and natural. You can also choose the length and type of curl (J is the smallest curve, but it ends up looking longer; C and D are the most bent upwards), as well as the number of eyelashes you should apply.
Nowadays, there are so many different options for eyelash extensions, such as pink, green, orange and blue locks, that will not only enhance your natural eyelashes, but will also add a fun touch of color to your daily glamor. If you're one of those people who don't mind the occasional shortage, or if you don't need eyelash extensions to be so close together, you can go untreated for longer. However, if you want to keep your lashes looking full and fabulous, it's important to get regular fills every 6-8 weeks. During this time, the technician can remove any extension where the adhesive is reaching the end of its useful life and the eyelashes are about to fall off. It's key to have a strong and open sense of communication with your technician when it comes to maintaining your lashes. And if you're going to apply eye cream, Shin recommends using it in the morning instead of at night so it doesn't penetrate your eyelashes (avoid greases that are full of mineral oil).
You should apply enough product to your natural eyelashes to prevent the extensions from breaking. Getting lash fills is an easy way to keep your lashes looking full and fabulous without having to go through the entire process of getting a full set of extensions. With regular maintenance and care, you can enjoy beautiful lashes for weeks on end!.
