One of the best ways to wake up looking fresh-faced and flawless is to consider eyelash extensions. Adding colour, length and dimension to your lashes, it’s a surefire way to shave minutes off your morning makeup routine, leaving more time to sleep, or perhaps indulge in a fancy breakfast, which is always a win in our eyes.
The process can take anywhere from half an hour to three hours, depending on the set of lashes you go for. Whether you’re after ‘my lashes but better’, ‘I just applied a lick of mascara’ or a total glamour makeover, your eyelash extensions are totally customisable, and your lash professional will make sure to tailor a look to suit you and your lifestyle.
The price may vary depending on the kind of extensions you choose, with options ranging from synthetic to mink and silk lashes, of varying thickness and length. They’ll be applied individually, using a semi-permanent glue designed to hold fast, without damaging your natural lashes underneath.
As with any kind of beauty treatment, a patch test is recommended to minimise the risk of an allergic reaction or infection. After all, your eyes are super delicate. And while beauty is often considered pain, here it’s just not worth the trouble. High heels are a different story.
Your eyelash extensions may last anywhere from 6-8 weeks, obviously depending on proper aftercare, the amount of eye makeup you wear and how often you wash your face or take a shower. To maintain your extensions, refills are a popular way to fill in your lashes as they gradually fall out. This can be done every 2-4 weeks or as recommended by your lash guru.
