How Eyelash Extensions Should Look?
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.
Eyelash Extensions - My Experience Before, During and After Eyelash Extensions
The eyes play a major role in people's perception of your overall beauty. Having beautiful eyes is a big deal from a beauty standpoint. Many women turn to eye shadows and eye liners to enhance their eyes. Most people put forth at least a minimal effort when it comes to eye makeup. Some even use eyelash extensions or false eyelashes. Why go the extra mile? That is because beautiful eyelashes make your eyes even more stunning. However, very few women are lucky enough to have been born with longer eyelashes. There are a few things you can do if you want your lashes to be longer. You can try to help them grow longer, but this takes time, so if you're not patient, you can get the illusion of longer lashes.
False eyelashes are a great way to make your lashes look longer and fuller instantly. It may take a while to get the hang of application but once you get a feel for how to put them on, it can become a part of your regular routine. Some people only reserve fake lashes for special occasions. You can also take this one step further and get lash extensions applied in a salon. Much like hair extensions, these are little pieces of hair that are glued to your existing lashes and stay in place for a couple of months. This is one of the more expensive options but it gives you long lashes any time, anywhere- in the pool, the rain, the shower, anywhere.
Which Eyelash Extensions To Get?
I was born without a lot of body hair. I feel lucky; I am one of the few who have gotten away with not having to wax nor shave my legs EVER. On the downside, my eyebrows are thin and my eyelashes short, light and sparse like my eyebrows.
I don't wear mascara. I found my lashes falling off along with mascara when it was time to clean off.
Upon my sister's prodding, I decided to try lash extensions. I've seen other girls.... Oh, to have those long butterfly eyelashes!
The eyelash extensions came in three different lengths: Long, medium and natural. Because my own eyelashes are short to begin with, I went for the natural length. The whole procedure was long and tedious. Each individual eyelash extension had to be glued to my own and I had to keep my eyelids closed the entire time, trying my best not to move them, as any movement caused the just-glued-but-not-quite-set eyelash to become crooked. As far as any pain or discomfort, there was none, except for the smell of the glue, which wasn't too bad. I was fidgety the whole time and I couldn't contain my anticipation. After forty five minuets, which seemed more like two hours to me, the eyelash extension procedure was done. I looked in the mirror...OMG. Those are not my eyes! They are too sexy, too tantalizing! (OMG again!) I had to look long and hard in the mirror. I had long eyelashes! Not only that, but I looked like I had eyeliner on, too. My sister and I giggled and giggled like two teenagers. I walked out of that salon quite happily. I didn't even take a single look at the leaflet that was handed to me, the "How To Care For" instructions of my new deliciously lush prolific eyelashes.
Would I do it again? Probably not. Although I was happy with my eyelash extensions during the first two weeks, the week or so that followed after that was quite awkward as half of them had already come unglued. I would liken it to growing out a bad haircut. I'm also a fussy person and I could not keep from rubbing my eyes.
This is not to say that I have given up my quest for long sexy eyelashes. I do have my eyes on LATISSE, that prescription eyelash treatment that is supposed to grow them naturally thicker and longer. And then there is TALIKA and another similar product from Peter Thomas Roth that work much like Latisse except that they can be bought without prescription. I don't give up. Onward with the good fight for BEAUTY!!
