Eyelash extensions are a newly adopted beauty trend sweeping the globe, if not yourself you should know someone who has had or currently has eyelash extensions and this usually comes with a strong opinion for or against this beauty treatment. We are going to let you know the downside of eyelash extensions that isn't always talked about when considering to get a set application.
There are many excellent and highly skilled eyelash extension artists and professionals, however, the risk of incorrect application is large if done the wrong eyelash extensions can rip off all of your natural lashes and take months if not years to grow back. Having extremely thick artificial hairs lying on your eyelids can cause bacteria to build up increasing the risk of infection within the eye. In saying this, eyelash extensions that are applied correctly can have minimal to no impact on your eye health. Before booking in to get a full set make sure you do your research and pick a well know and experienced technician to ensure your eyes and eyelashes are in safe hands.
Single-use false lashes look just as fabulous as permanent eyelash extensions and better yet they are less than a quarter of the price, you can get standard one use lashes from the pharmacy for under $10 and higher quality 2-3 use eyelashes from beauty and makeup stores. These beauties take less than 2 minutes to apply and will stay on all night/day long until you pull them off. This may sound painful but the false eyelashes sit on the eyelid just above your natural lashes and attach to the skin with a soft tacky glue so the removal process does not hurt unless applied wrong. Your natural lashes will be as good as new following the false lash removal.
More now than ever the beauty community is enhancing and embracing a more natural looking face and body, freckles, bushy eyebrows and all. This is why we would suggest to opt out for permanent eyelash extensions, sure they fall out after a few weeks but do you really want a full set when going to the gym or going for an end of summer swim?
The process of applying a full set of false eyelash extensions can take up to two hours per session! Considering you need an infill or re-application every 2-3 weeks, you will be spending lots of time in the salon or eyelash studio. Let's say on average you get your lashes done 20 weeks within a year, times that by 2 hours and it equals almost 2 full days a year spent applying for eyelash extensions, I think we can all list a hundred things we would rather do with these precious hours!
