Eyelash Extensions, The New Eye Candy


Faux eyelashes, often called eyelash extensions have become the rage. Semi-permanent, they can give you longer, thicker eyelashes, and can look oh so natural.

Do you want to draw attention to your eyes or simply enhance what you already have? You can either apply them yourself or have an esthetician do it for you.

If youíre thinking of applying them yourself, youíve got work a head of you. Adhered with eyelash glue you'll need to begin with a full set -- 40 to 50 eyelashes which may be purchased in kits. Some kits contain extra 'flares' or clusters, they act as replacement lashes for those that will slip away. Doing your extensions at home, sit or stand, facing a mirror; and this way you're in control. The cost is about $50, and lashes will last perhaps 10 days.

Or you may see a professional, one specializing in lash extensions which can be worn daily. Unlike the traditional strip false eyelashes that only last days, professionally done individual synthetic eyelash extensions vary in length and thickness and are bonded to natural lashes one by one with tweezers. At a salon, an aesthetician should have you lie down before she applies a spongy gel pad to cover your lower lashes to prevent them from becoming glued to the uppers.

I had this process done and it took the young lady 2 hours to finish the job. She was in training and I served as her model for practice. Your extensions can last about two months. Typical costs vary, but start at about $300. If correctly done, your new lash extensions should mirror lush natural eyelashes and negate the need for mascara that can clump.

Since our natural eyelashes shed every 60 - 90 days with new lashes growing in, technicians recommend touch-ups, to fill in sleep, swim, and shower-safe lash extensions every 2 weeks or so. However, due to popularity, an appointment with a reputable aesthetician may need to be booked months in advance.

If everyday glam is not for you, you can opt for a special occasion look. Maybe you're a lash virgin who is pondering getting extensions for your wedding. Then have them done 2 weeks before your big day, to make sure you won't have an allergic reaction. Remember there is glue/adhesive involved and you wouldn't want to appear as though you'd been profusely sobbing the day before. If necessary, opt for a fill/touchup days in advance of your vows.

The price of beauty! Not only is there money involved, so is your time. Well, thatís it for this week! If youíve enjoyed this article, share it with a friend or two.
