Considering Eyelash Extensions? Read This First.
Having long and fluttering eyelashes is every woman’s dream. In fact, in a survey conducted by CoverGirl, nearly 50 percent of women revealed that they would choose a mascara if they are given a choice of using only one makeup product. But what if your lashes already looked long, lush and dark without using mascara? I am talking about eyelash extensions- you must try them. I decided to opt for the best quality lashes and got them applied to the patient and talented expert. It’s almost t a week now since I have applied them and I already feel well acquainted with them. The lashes though not very suitable for the wash- and — go type of women are nonetheless quite amazing. In fact, I have learned four things from getting permanent eyelash extensions by The Naked Truth.
Disclaimer: When you look at my before and after photos, you may not find them extremely drastic, but this is the look that I had requested. However, it is worth mentioning that I am wearing a mascara in my first photo and have not applied any eye makeup (except for some serious under eye concealing) in the second one. Women looking to sport longer eyelashes like those of Kardashian’s eyelashes can opt for longer extensions.
Top 5 Things to Know About Lash Extensions
1. Keeping your eyes closed and still for about three hours is difficult. The more I made an effort to keep them closed, the more I found it impossible to do so. I tried making lists of the things I had to finish for the day and the questions I had regarding the process and writing this post mentally. All this activity in the brain leads to the twitching and fluttering of my lids that it made the professional enquire whether I was thinking hard. But what else I could do to keep my eyes closed for hours, perhaps just take a nap, I guess.
2. They have unique designs. Lashes are available in numerous length, curls, and thickness and I was thoroughly impressed after having a look at their collection. Before deciding on a design that would be most suitable for me, the expert did examine my natural lashes and also enquired if I had any personal preferences. What’s more, eyelash extensions are available in a myriad range of colors. While I chose to go with natural brown-black, you can opt for any color under the sun.
3. Eyelash extensions require high maintenance. Along with my new look, I was given a set of rules and regulations to be followed and was handed over certain tools required for the care and maintenance of the extensions. To keep the extensions well- maintained, it was important that you comb it daily with a clean spooley brush and avoid getting them wet for the first 24 hours. Wearing the extensions also made it difficult for me to remove my eye make- up. Using make- up wipes became a must, as using cotton pads left behind lint on my lashes, leaving me picking them off the lashes for 15 minutes. I also realized that no matter how gently you handle these extensions, they will gradually and discreetly fall off just like the natural eyelashes. So far, I have managed to conceal the gaps using a bit of mascara.
4. Wearing eyelash extensions can become an addiction. After wearing the extensions, I realized that I should not have waited so long before giving eyelash extensions a shot. I can’t imagine how dull my natural will look once the eyelash extensions are all gone. Generally, extensions last for about three to four weeks and require you get them filled, which I am planning to do. I have been receiving loads of complement from friends after getting the lash extensions and have accepted them gracefully. Try them today.
