Eyelash extensions give the impression of long, full lashes by adding length and volume to your natural eyelashes. When having eyelash extensions synthetic single fiber polyester thread-like materials are applied to eyelashes to create a fuller, longer look that is semi-permanent, meaning that they can last several weeks before requiring a top-up.
Fake Eyelash extensions consist of single, curved synthetic eyelashes that can be supplied in various lengths, colours and thicknesses, which give the option of having a look that ranges from very subtle and natural to extremely dramatic. An eyelash technician applies the extensions to each eyelash individually. It takes on average about one to two hours for a technician to apply a full set of eyelash extensions.
Eyelash extensions are convenient and safe to wear whilst swimming, having a shower, sleeping or exercising. However, repeated exposure to oil can weaken the adhesive bond. The fake lash does not impede the growth of the natural lash.
Individual eyelash extensions can last from three weeks to three months, depending on the cycle of your hair growth. Usually, a natural eyelash will fall out within 90 days and a new one grows in its place. This cycle makes it necessary to get regular top-ups for lashes that fall out.
If you have had fake eyelash extensions that didn't last as long as you were told you should read this as there are a few tips here that might help you out next time.
Firstly you have got eyelash extensions for a reason, you want longer, fuller, and all round better look than you already have. You are probably someone who uses allot of mascara and also spends allot of money on the stuff, if you have eyelash extensions in you don't need to wear ANY mascara!
Secondly, you should buy some eye make up remover from your eyelash technician, they will have some and for the sake for a few more pounds to the bill you should buy it. If you have paid so much for fake eyelashes you don't want them to fall out after a week because the make up remover you are using is causing them to fall out.
Thirdly, DON'T PULL AT THEM! I cannot tell you enough times not to do this, I know they might feel strange for a while but don't at them, it is only going to make them lose and fall out.
If you follow all these rules your false eyelashes will last that much longer and you will see benefit in spending $60-70 on them as they will last a long time.
Eyelash extensions are said to last for the same time as your natural eyelashes which they should if they are applied correctly by a good eyelash technician. They should last your natural eyelash life and fall out with them.
Mascara is not necessary when wearing eyelash extensions. However, mascara still can be used if desired. It is most advisable to use a water-based mascara that is easy to remove. In fact, one of the main reasons for having extensions is to avoid the daily task of having to apply mascara.
