How Eyelash Extensions Are Put On?
Mink eyelashes are the most expensive and luxurious looking of all false eyelashes. Although available as lash extensions, they are normally found as strip lashes that are applied as when required.
False eyelashes have been around since 1916 when D. W. Griffith had a wig maker weave human hair through gauze and then glued to the eyeline of actress Seena Owen in the film Intolerance. No one really took much notice until the 60s, when they came back into fashion and were then made from synthetic substances. Mink eyelashes are more recent and preferred by celebrities who do not always wish for permanent implants.
Beware when looking for mink eyelashes if you find cheap ones, as these are likely to be fakes. Look for high quality strip lashes that guaranteed to be 100% natural mink fur and you won't be disappointed with your choice.
Why Do Eyelash Extensions?
When painting eyes in a portrait, eyelashes are sometimes the final touch and can make or break your work. All eyelashes are not created equal. Sometimes just a few strokes of the brush is all that is needed to give the suggestion of lashes. Other times it is necessary to delicately detail lashes since that is the feature you want to stand out.
One of the things to remember when painting eyelashes is to study your model or reference photo. Seldom are human eyes lashes uniformly straight up from the eyelid. Even so this is a common way for beginning artists to paint them. If you look carefully, you will see that the top lashes usually go off to the side, then gently lift upward. The bottom lashes are similar.
When I paint portraits I like to paint the eyes, and then the eyelashes last. The reason is that the eyes define a person and finalize the portrait in a sense. There are other portions of the eye that need to be painted correctly of course as well. When it comes to the eyelashes however, sometimes less is more. My advise it to use a tiny detail brush, quick strokes and to know when to stop!
What is Eyelash Tinting?
Well girls, what's it to be? So many options on the market, and yes, they all have a price - not just the up front costs but the on going maintenance of those lovely lash treatments! Lovely lashes are of course every woman's dream, but we're not all gifted with amazing eyelashes. To get the look, how do we choose? Lets take a look at our options:
Adventurous and have a steady, artistic hand? You can try your luck with eyelash glue and stick on an amazing choice of false eyelashes. They come in many colours, lengths, and thickness, with options to dazzle your friends with added bling or even glow in the dark lashes! False eyelashes are either sold as Individual or Strip and come in shades from blondes to black or wild colours like greens and purples. The difference between individual and strip lashes is in the application. Individual lashes in two styles: regular or cluster, are applied to the base of your eyelashes to create a fuller look. Individual lashes generally will stay in place until your natural eyelash sheds. Strip eyelashes on the other hand are applied to the eyelid across the top of your natural eyelash line and can be removed and re-used. They are priced as cheap as ten dollars made from synthetic or silk, or as much as forty dollars for a pair. If budget isn't a problem you can lash out on a pair of fox hair eyelashes for around $1000 - thank goodness they're reusable! If it's costume makeup you're doing, then by all means - go crazy! To achieve a 'natural' look the general rule is to stick to shades that most suit your natural colour. If it's evening wear your creating lovely lashes for, then go with black.
Grow Your Own Eyelashes Naturally
Another craze in the quest for perfect eyelashes is to enhance or make your own eyelashes grow naturally. The key to these products is to nourish and strengthen brittle eyelashes as well as to stimulate new growth. Generally the products come in a mascara wand and contain a protein formula, applied once or twice a day. What to look for when purchasing: Make sure the ingredients are considered safe (for sensitive eyes) and effective, as well as being clinically researched and proven. Keep in mind how much of the product you will need to use in order to get results, and if usage is on going. This should give you an indication of what it will end up costing you before you buy. Watch out for dangerous ingredients like paraben and prostaglandin.
Remember girls; there are eyelash remedies you can make from your own home!
