In today’s age of endless make-up and hair trends, anything goes and one minute a beauty fad is in, and the next it’s out! It is hard to keep up with the fast paced world of fashion and beauty. The newest and greatest cosmetic craze on the market right now causing a sensation: Eyelash Extensions! Eyelash Extensions are hyped as the hottest thing in eye fashion accessories since the invention of mascara! Celebrities are cashing in on this look, but you don’t have to be Paris Hilton or Naomi Campbell to get it. Eyelash extensions are designed to give anyone the look they want, and no one will even know their not your own!
Have you loaded on the mascara, after gluing on long swaths of falsies in an effort to increase the length and depth of your own eye lashes, only to come out looking as if furry spider’s legs were leaping off of your face? After numerous unsuccessful stabs at it, were you finally able to recreate the look that you wanted, but unfortunately, your lashes still appeared as if they were fake? Sometimes that’s ok- for certain looks, other times you just want MORE lashes for a natural look, as if they grew that way.
This new eyelash rage is HOT and sounds impossible, but possible it is! The procedure itself is painless and the look when finished is out-of-this-world lovely! In the end you will have noticeably longer, thicker, and darker lashes! The initial investment can be anywhere from $700.00 on up, and maintenance can run you upwards of $75.00 to $100.00 a touch-up. This procedure is not cheap. But, those who have had it done already love it; and are willing to beg, borrow, and steel to keep it up.
There are trained professionals who specialize in eyelash extension application, and you shouldn’t try to do this at home on your own. This is one, you don’t want to mess up! Eyelash extensions come in a variety of colors, lengths, and thickness. It is up to you to decide exactly what you are looking for. These lashes are just like your own, you can sleep in them, swim and shower in them; and the nice thing is this, they are designed to imitate your own lashes.
Each lash is individually hand placed one-by-one and are blended in with your own lashes using a special colored adhesive and special tools. They are considered semi-permanent because as your own eyelashes grow out, and fall out, so do these. They are fabricated from a synthetic material which duplicates your own lashes. The end result: full, long, and darker eyelashes.
Even if you have always had very little eyelashes you can now have lashes to-die-for in an hour or so. The process doesn’t take very long, but it is always good to have a consultation beforehand, to prepare that you and your lash extension professional are ready to get you into their salon; get those fab lashes on, and then get you out on the town! As with any product, if you have allergies or sensitivities to any of the ingredients, it is best to find out beforehand, so ask the experienced professional, and then you should be good-to-go!
I always envied women with long, thick eyelashes. Now you can be the envy of others with your sweeping dark eyelashes across a nicely manicured brow. I think it’s time to invest in eyelash extensions, fad or not, it seems worth it, and what-the-heck, if I don’t like them – they will fall out in 60-90 days- when normal lashes fall out anyway and are replaced with new ones, and better yet, no one will even know they aren’t your own! What’s not to like?!?
