Top 5 Perks of Eyelash Extensions
Eyelashes are, in many ways, your best kept beauty secret. Full, long lashes do the job of lining and enhancing the eye itself for an instant, beautiful look.
Even with no eye shadow or eyeliner, lashes hold their own at defining your eye. Sadly, not all of us are blessed with naturally full, dark lashes. Mascara does the job, but eyelash extensions offer a semi-permanent, mess-free, gorgeous and long-lasting alternative to having raccoon eyes every time you jump in the pool.
If you’re on the fence about eyelash extensions, here are a few things you should know.
What You Didn’t Know About Lash Extensions
1. You will look younger.
Eyelash extensions create a lift in the eye and make them appear big and more beautiful. As you may have noticed, many children tend to have lush full lashes. The process of aging and hormonal shifts make our lashes more sparce. Extensions not only make the eyes look younger but the entire face will appear rejuvenated and more youthful.
2. You will wear less makeup.
Hallelujah! Wearing less makeup means less time getting ready. Getting ready in the morning is faster and easier with lash extensions. You will look more awake, put-together and ready to go with little to no effort because of those big, beautiful eyes.
3. No mascara smear.
You can go swimming, work out and do normal actives without the worry of your makeup running. Jump in the ocean without removing your mascara first. Go to the gym makeup-free and STILL look like a beauty queen! Eyelash extensions = less mess and less stress.
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent, meaning that they very gradually and naturally fall out (when your natural lash does) without any pain or discomfort. With proper care and the right tools, you can maximize your extensions and keep them on your eyes for several weeks or more.
Our lash extension specialists always give clients the lo-down on lash extension maintenance and care. When you come in for your appointment, we’ll give you all the tricks we have up our sleeve to make your lashes last as long as possible.
5. You can create your own look.
With the right eyelash extension specialist, you can customize your eyelashes and create the look you’re most comfortable with—whether that’s a subtle change or something more dramatic and voluminous. Because eyelash extensions are applied individually to each of your natural lashes (unlike traditional fake eyelash strips), we can work to bring out the beauty of your eye shape.
You may have seen someone with eyelash extensions you really disliked. Don’t sweat it. Lash extensions, like hair extensions, are not “one size fits all.” Our specialist will do a full consultation with you beforehand to ensure you achieve the exact look you’re going for.
