What You Should Know Before Applying Eyelash Extensions

Getting eyelash extensions is an easy way to add instant dramatic flair to your overall appearance. Even if you are not genetically blessed with naturally beautiful lashes, you can still enjoy long and lush eyelashes if you go with extensions. Here are three things that you should know before applying eyelash extensions.

Types of Lash Extensions

There are numerous types of lash extensions available, making it easy to find the right material for your needs and preferences. The three major types of extensions are synthetic, silk, and mink. The material that you choose is largely dependent on the look that you are going for and your personal tolerance to different types of materials. Synthetic lashes are the heaviest while mink or silk are lighter and more natural-looking. After you have selected the material, you need to decide on the length as well as the shape and angle of the lash curl. If this is the first time you have used lashes, it is better to go with a more natural look.

Safety

While there are no major dangers when it comes to applying lashes, you should still take reasonable precautions to ensure that you do not develop any irritation. Make sure you follow correct application tips for lash extensions. The type of glue that you use may also influence your level of personal tolerance. Be careful to not pick at the lashes after they have been applied. This may cause irritation to the entire eye area. It is also important to wash your hands and sterilize tweezers or any other equipment used in the application process.

Maintenance and Follow-Up

After the application of the lashes, you need to be careful to not get them wet for 12-24 hours. Once that time has passed, you are free to shower or swim. While you will no longer need to wear mascara, you can still use any of your other regular eye makeup. Eyeshadow and eyeliner are acceptable products that will complement your new lashes. Using an oil-free makeup remover will ensure that you do not disturb the adhesive on the lashes. You should fill your lashes every two to three weeks for maximum effect.

Once you experience the ease and convenience of eyelash extensions, you will never go back. It is so easy to have the lashes that you have always dreamed about with this essential beauty tool.
