So, you’re thinking of getting eyelash extensions for CNY 2023?
Extensions can be a great way to add length and volume to your lashes, but you should know a few things before making your decision.
Let’s explore them.
Are eyelash extensions safe?
Your safety should be the number one concern when getting lash extensions.
It’s okay as long as the lash artist you go to is certified and licensed. They should also be using products that are safe for your eyes and lashes.
Benefits of eyelash extensions
First, eyelash extensions can speed up your makeup routine.
No more fumbling with clumpy mascara. With extensions, your eyes will look amazing even without any of those on.
Furthermore, eyelash extensions can replace other eye makeup products too. If you’re not a fan of wearing eye shadow or liner, extensions can give you all the drama and definition you need without any extra fuss.
Third, eyelash extensions are customizable. You can choose the length, thickness, and curl of your extensions to create a look that’s perfect for you.
How to prep before the appointment
Remember to shower before your appointment. Since you want to avoid getting your lashes wet after the session, it’s best to get yourself scrubbed before you head out.
Also, make sure you have a clean face. This means that you should remove all of your eye makeup, as well as any lotions or oils. If your lashes are coated in any of these products, the adhesive won’t stick correctly and the extensions will likely fall out prematurely.
Different types of eyelash extensions
Not all lash extension types are created equal—there are a few distinguishable types that you should be aware of before you make your decision.
Synthetic lashes are the most common type of lash extension, and they’re made from a variety of materials. They come in an assortment of lengths and thicknesses so you can customize your look.
Mink lashes are the next most popular type of lash extension made from actual fur. Thus, you can expect it to be lightweight and natural, though it may not sit well with animal advocates.
Silk lashes are another option. They’re made from silk or synthetic-based silk fiber, and somewhere between synthetic and mink lashes in terms of weight and price.
How to care for your eyelash extensions
When you finally have your new lash extensions on, know how to take care of them so they last as long as possible.
Here are a few tips:
- Keep your lashes clean. Gently brush them with a lash brush or Q-tip every day to remove any dirt or debris.
- Avoid wetting them for the first 48 hours after getting them done. This includes no sauna or swimming.
- Avoid using mascara on your extensions, as this will make them brittle and more likely to fall out.
- Use an eyelash curler gently on the tips of the extensions to help them stay in place.
