Eyelash extension

An eyelash extension is yet another semi permanent makeup accessory that is available for the woman of today. You can give your eyes a lush and luscious appearance with eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions are usually one-half or one-third longer than your natural eyelashes.

You can choose to apply mascara on your eyelash extensions, but stick to water-based mascara. Usually, these lash extensions come in black and brown colors. Do not use heated eyelash curlers on the extensions. Creams and oil-based cleansers can loosen the bonds of the eyelash extensions.

Usually an eyelash application procedure takes about 2 hours, depending on the number of extensions that are being applied. Eyelash extensions last for about 6 8 weeks the average live of a natural eyelash. Eyelash extensions are individually applied to the natural lashes and the procedure is virtually pain free. Eyelash extensions are curled to replicate the curve of the natural eyelashes, flat at the base and fine at the tip. Special bonding agents are used to attach them to the natural lashes. These adhesives dry on the lashes but allow them to remain flexible and bouncy.
