For many of us, having naturally full and long lashes is a dream come true. While mascara can help enhance your eyes, eyelash extensions are a much more practical and longer-lasting solution. But if you’re new to the world of lash extensions, it’s important to understand how they work. Let’s explore what eyelash extensions are and how they can help you get the most out of your eyes.
What Are Eyelash Extensions?
Eyelash extensions are individual artificial lashes that are attached to each natural lash with a special medical grade adhesive. They come in various lengths, thicknesses, colors, and textures for you to choose from according to your preference. At Lashes By Katie, they offer many options so that you can customize your look for any occasion or lifestyle. And just like the hair on your head or the hair on your body, your lashes naturally fall out. Which means that every 2-4 weeks, you’ll need a “refill” to keep your lashes looking full!
How Do They Work?
The process of getting eyelash extensions usually takes anywhere from 1-2 hours depending on how many lashes are being applied and the type of style requested. First, the lash specialist will cleanse your lashes with an oil-free cleanser before applying a protective pad on your lower lashes and lids. After that, individual lashes will be carefully attached one by one to each natural lash until the desired look is achieved.
Benefits Of Having Lash Extensions
The great thing about eyelash extensions is that not only do they make your eyes look fuller and more defined but they also help reduce the amount of time to get ready, because you won't have to use mascara every day! Plus, since these extensions are waterproof and sweatproof, you don't have to worry about them smudging or running during hot days or workouts at the gym – making them ideal for active women who want beautiful looking lashes all day long without having to constantly maintain them! Moreover, lash extensions provide volume without weighing down your natural lashes or damaging them the way curlers and mascara does!
