Eyelash Extensions

  • Need to be applied in a salon
  • Take about two hours to apply – for a full set
  • Eyelash extensions need to be touched up if you want to maintain them – that means attending the salon every three to four weeks
  • Touch ups on your eyelash extensions take around one hour to complete
  • Are quite a bit more expensive than false eyelashes
  • Need to be taken off professionally, or you need to let them fall out
  • Eyelash extensions can cause damage to your natural eyelashes if you don’t care for them properly, or they’re applied incorrectly
  • Eyelash extensions limit the type of mascara you can use as certain types can damage and shorten the life of them, dissolving the bonding agent
  • If you have eyelash extension you need to be careful of the face cleansers and moisturizes you use, or anything which may come in contact with your eyes, such as hand creams, as oil based products can ruin your eyelash extensions
  • You need to be careful rubbing your eyes when you have eyelash extensions as they may fall out and damage your natural lashes
  • During the cure period (24 hours) you need to avoid crying or any other types of moisture as your false eyelashes may not bond properly – so no fighting with your boyfriends girls
  • Eyelash Extensions can look very natural, depending on the type of extension you choose
