Many have heard of the actresses of today getting natural eyelashes extensions but may not know exactly what goes into eyelash extensions, or if they are attainable by us regular folk.
Eyelash extensions are actually natural eyelashes attached to your individual lashes. There are all sorts of options as to your personal needs from having just the corners of your lashes enhanced all the way to an entire set being applied to every possible eyelash.
The average person has about 75-125 lashes per eye that vary in length and thickness.
Of course these are YOUR eyes we are talking about so safety does come into play and eyelash extensions are completely safe when applied correctly. Make sure and only have your lashes applied by a licensed and certified individual. When done properly, the lashes will be glued to your current eyelash and have no contact with your skin. They will fall out as your natural lashes recycle themselves so one should plan on getting touch ups about every 2-3 weeks as you naturally will lose 2-5 eyelashes per day.
Benefits of the natural eyelashes or synthetic lashes is obvious – makeup 100% of the time! In fact you should not wear mascara, as it will loosen the bond in the adhesive and leave a build up that is hard to remove. The care for the lashes is quite simple in the fact that you should use oil free products on them and do not pull or rub your eyes. The lashes are waterproof so one can shower or hit the pool as usual.
Most are probably wondering what you can expect for an average price for this wonderful time saver. Unfortunately the initial cost to have them applied is roughly $200 but if you watch specials like Groupon or summertime specials you can reduce this by a little. Touch ups can run anywhere from $35 for 30 min to $85 for 90 minutes depending on how many lashes need to be replaced. Just like most things, the longer you go the longer you are going to need to spend on a touch up.
The initial application will take about 2 hours but is well worth the time as this will be the last time for the next few weeks that you will have to do your eye makeup! Once applied you should not notice that you have anything on your eyes.
Good tips for the length of your lashes. Stay away from water or steam for about 24 hours after the eyelashes are applied to let the adhesive dry properly. Show up for application or touch up with a clean face (no eye makeup on). Try to limit your caffeine because natural eyelashes can make your eyes jump making it harder to have the lashes applied.
