by LiveGlam 2 years ago

Any certified MUA or YouTube beauty guru will tell you that eyelash extensions are one of the easiest ways to an effortless glam look. And no, I’m not referring to the inexpensive lashes you can purchase at your local beauty supply store. Getting professionally applied falsies are safer for our sensitive eyes and extends the life of the extensions. Instead of going through yet another trial and tribulation with mascara, read these tips on eyelash techniques whether you’re a newbie or pro.

Choosing Your Style

All lashes are not created equal. You can choose from mink, silk, or synthetic and a wide variety of lengths and densities. An experienced eyelash technician will apply the individual lashes to the lash line to create a custom look – from natural to full on sex-kitten. A great way to achieve any look is to have several different lengths applied. The process can take up to two hours, so feel free to catch up on some beauty sleep during the application.

Caring for Your Extensions

Primpin’ ain’t easy. Caring for your new lashes takes a bit of work but once you get into a routine, taking those few extra steps a day is totally worth it – you do want them to last don’t you? By now, we should know at least some of the benefits of sleeping on a silk pillowcase, such a helping our lashes stay in tact. And switching to cotton swabs instead of cotton pads for eye makeup removal is essential to keep lashes in place. When using cotton pads, you risk the lashes getting tangled in the fibers.

A lot of tutorials show people layering mascara on top of their lashes. This is a major fail for eyelash extensions. Mascara contains oils and is usually not removable without water. Since your new furry friends are aquaphobic, it’s best to keep them away from large amounts of water. Oils are also a foe because they break down the lash glue.

Do Your Research

Read reviews of your future lash tech. Those Groupon deals may look tempting, but you get what you pay for. It’s better to pay a little more upfront than to risk side effects such a irritation, loss of lashes, and unsightly gaps between your natural lash and the falsies. Seeing a professional limits your risk for these problems and will help your eyelash extensions last up to six weeks.
