The 101 On Eyelash Extensions

The 101 On Eyelash Extensions One of the many things that women want to thank the makeup gods for is the invention of eyelash extensions. It magically gives their eyes a doll-like feel which seems just about right since the eyes are the windows to the soul. Eyelash extensions instantly gained popularity the moment they appeared on the menus of salons and spas since women wanted to achieve those long lashes to draw more attention to their eyes. Unlike false eyelashes that look fake take forever to apply, eyelash extensions are attached individually to the upper eyelashes through a cyanoacrylate-based glue which resembles a surgical adhesive. The eyelash extensions give that extra oomph and emphasis that your eyes need, minimizing the need to apply an eyeliner and mascara. Anyone with eyelashes that are approximately three millimeters long are allowed to get eyelash extensions. Name Your Price Eyelash extensions are a bit more expensive than false eyelashes because of the material used to make them, the special glue needed to attach them to the upper eyelashes, and the fact that they are more permanent than the falsies.

The lengths usually range from 0.10 to 0.30 millimeters. Anything beyond that might damage your natural eyelashes especially if they are already weak to begin with. How It’s Done You will be lying down throughout the application process. Sterilized cotton pads will be placed on top of your lower eyelashes and they you will be asked to close your eyes. This keeps the pads in place but more than that, it keeps the special glue from entering and hurting your eyes. The eyelash technician will then get a pair of fine tweezers, apply some of the special glue on the eyelash extension, and carefully place it near your natural eyelashes. To be more detailed about it, the eyelash extensions are applied one millimeter near the root of your natural lash.
