What To Do When You're Ready For Eyelash Extensions


Long, curled eyelashes can bring attention to your eyes and make you look more feminine. They can even make you look more awake if you're running low on sleep. Here are four things you should do when you're ready to get eyelash extensions.

Save money by having your lash extensions refilled.

Lash extensions aren't permanent. If you enjoy the full, lush look they provide, you will need to get touch-ups at regular intervals. In general, having your lashes refilled once a month is ideal, although if you're rough with your lash extensions, you may need more frequent touch-ups. According to Groupon, an initial set of eyelash extensions can cost up to $200. Meanwhile, refills only cost around $55. You can save a lot of money by maintaining your extensions instead of redoing them each time.

Avoid mascara.

Mascara is commonly used to provide additional length, color, and volume to your natural eyelashes. While mascara can enhance the drama of your eye makeup, it can be difficult to remove, often requiring a lot of tugging and rubbing that can pull off your lash extensions. Get your lash extensions in a thickness and length you're happy with and skip the mascara entirely. This will allow your lash extensions to last longer since they won't be exposed to friction and eye makeup remover.

Get the right lash material for your skin type.

Natural fiber lash extensions are very popular. These are often made from animal fur and mink is commonly used for its luster and strength. The fur is thoroughly cleaned so it's safe to wear near your eyes. However, some people with animal allergies may have negative reactions to natural lash extensions. If your skin is sensitive or you're prone to irritation, you should ask for synthetic lash extensions instead. These extensions are hypoallergenic and are less likely to cause itchiness or irritation.

Choose a good salon.

Whenever someone is working near your eyes, you want to make sure they're well-qualified. Eyelash extensions are completely safe when applied by a trained professional, but the process can end in disaster if it's done by the wrong person. Choose a good salon with well-trained estheticians. They will carefully apply each individual lash to your natural lashes using eye-safe glue. The process can take a few hours, but it's worth the wait when you consider all the time you'll save getting ready in the morning.

Choosing A Better Salon

Do you remember the last time you had your hair professionally done? About a year ago, I realized that I needed to have a little help with my look, so I started checking out different spas and salons in the area. I was able to find an amazing place that specialized in hairstyles for men, and so I made an appointment and then headed in. It was really incredible to see how much of a difference they were able to make, and within no time, I felt like I looked a ton better. This blog is all about choosing a better salon to get a personal makeover.
