Lash Extensions Know-How
Lash extensions are the ultimate in time-efficient makeup. You spend a relaxing appointment at the salon getting them applied, and then you wake up looking fantastic every day for weeks without even touching your makeup. And just like a good hairstyle, lash extensions can be tailored to meet your individual style instantly giving you the look you want.
First, let’s dispel the myth that using lash extensions ruins your natural lashes. It’s just not true. Each extension is individually attached to one of your natural lashes. Just like your hair, your eyelashes naturally fall out and are replaced over time. When the natural lash holding your extension is ready, both shed at the same time following your body’s own natural rhythm.
Choosing the best extensions to complement both your natural look as well as the look you want to achieve is very important. This is where your aesthetician becomes your new BFF. He or she can help you choose the length, color and texture that will get you the results you want. If you have round eyes, your technician can use an almond shaping technique that will elongate them. If you have deep set or hooded eyes, a curlier set of extensions will make your eyes seem to be more wide open. And if you have small eyes, applying the longest extensions in the center will make your eyes seem wider.
To keep your new extensions looking their best for as long as possible, follow your aesthetician’s after care advice. It will be pretty simple, and it would still be great advice to follow even if you didn’t have lash extensions. And put away your mascara – you won’t need it and your extensions won’t want it.
