Everything You Need to Know Before Getting Eyelash Extensions

If you're looking for a way to enhance your natural beauty, eyelash extensions may be the perfect solution. They can give you longer, fuller, thicker lashes with a beautiful curl that can make Betty Boop jealous. But before you book an appointment, there are a few things you should know about eyelash extensions. We recommend that your eyelashes be as natural and healthy as possible before applying the eyelash extension.

Avoid curling your eyelashes or using any other manipulation on them on the day of your appointment. It may take a day or two to get used to the feeling of wearing extensions, but many people find them much more comfortable than strappy lashes. They will also alter the way you normally sleep (unless you already sleep on your back). When getting eyelash extensions, it is always suggested that you remove your contact lenses so that your eyes are comfortable in a natural and rested state.

The eyes will remain closed during the application of the eyelash extensions. To avoid any discomfort, it is best to find a licensed beautician to apply them. If you take good care of them, eyelash extensions can last six to eight weeks until they fall out naturally, as your eyelashes usually do. Nowadays, there are so many different options for eyelash extensions, such as pink, green, orange and blue locks, which will not only enhance your natural lashes, but will also add a fun touch of color to your daily glamour.

The result can be great (you may wake up with a strip full of eyelashes and go to work without putting on any makeup), but after a week you may start to wake up with your pillowcase covered with eyelashes, extensions and your own natural eyelashes. All your eyelashes are at a different stage at any given time, which means that some of your eyelashes are about to fall out, while others are experiencing a growth period (this is true whether you have eyelash extensions or not). If you feel that mascara isn't enough and you're okay with the additional maintenance and money that eyelash extensions require, it's definitely worth looking for a specialist and having a consultation. Individual eyelash extensions are applied to each of the individual natural lashes (one extension per natural eyelash) with a semi-permanent glue.

But with that said, you can do everything right and still discover that eyelash extensions break your natural eyelashes.
