Eyelash Extensions and What to Expect

Eyelash Extensions and What to Expect

Posted by on Dec 11, 2016 in Eyelashes | 0 comments

What ARE eye lash extensions? Eye Lash extensions are simply an imitation of your real eyelashes. They are carefully dipped in a non-toxic glue or adhesive and placed to your real individualized lash one by one. There are different types of extensions and lengths. The three most common types of extensions are silk, mink, and synthetic. For the first time; even though it doesn’t sound intriguing; Synthetic might be the better choice in case of an allergic reaction to the Mink or even Silk. This may be an area that you are not sure of the sensitivity of your skin and eyes. It’s better to be safe; then to jump right into Beyoncé (wears mink lashes), and become BeWOW! Is it painful? Of course not; you barely know it is happening. If you tear up with the touch of another around your tear ducts, then you will feel the cool drops running down the sides of your face but other than that you will probably feel the need to sleep. Your lash stylist will take a seat above your head. They will place a pad right below your eyes and wiggled it up against each of your lower lash lines and will most likely tell you to close your eyes. Your Stylist will begin to work and I highly doubt you will be able to even feel them separating each lash with tweezers and gluing the longer lash to yours. This isn’t a wax resulting in pulling unwanted hair out. This is the complete opposite. This is putting thicker, longer hair in. So, the feeling is going to be opposite as well. No pain for this gain so sit back and lashnap! What can and can’t I do with “lash extensions“? After 24-48 depending upon the glue used and it has had time to cure; just simply live life as normal. Using common sense and be delicate around your eyes. When it comes to makeup and skincare, stay away from any oil-based products, such as moisturizers or makeup removers. These based products can break down the adhesive. No waterproof mascara, because it’s removal is a bit harder and can...

Eyelash Extensions or Raccoon City?

Eyelash Extensions or Raccoon City?

Did you know that 50% of woman chose Mascara if they could have only one make up product? Being a woman myself I would say I agree. Have you ever heard the term or statement that “One can see into the soul through the windows of one’s eyes”? Maybe this is completely true; I mean we can read joy or fear by considering one’s eyes; even love and compassion; so, if we can see all of this by looking in the eyes of another why couldn’t it be true; right?   Women get this a bit more than men; they have at least a better understanding of it. Think of all the money and countless hours spent on enhancing and highlighting their eyes to draw attentive attraction to themselves. We love make-up but we are always searching for the better lighter more natural enhancements that are not ruthless to our skin. When it comes to Mascara the ultimate, goal is to purchase one that is light; does not mat and makes our lashes seem longer and thicker as we curl them to our preferred state. But sometimes the greatest mascara just doesn’t do our eyes the justice we seek. It can get frustrating to spend hours in front of a mirror and not have the finishing result one wants. After spending all that time most of us just leave it all on when we finally sleep at night and we wake in the morning with the all too well known term of “Raccoon Eyes”. Make-up smeared, and smudged in places that you seriously wonder how it got there; and then you see your “once white” pillow case and then things become clear. Even if you are aware you fell asleep with your make-up on and you see the pillow case first; it just still doesn’t seem to prepare you for what’s next. It just doesn’t help the brain to trigger caution as you walk into the bathroom and look in the mirror; it’s always the same immediate shock of: Who the Hell!? And then calm “Oh that’s me” reaction. You can’t help to think “Only if they would come...
