Flirty, feminine, attractive… women everywhere have been lusting for long eyelashes since the dawn of time, and let’s be real, they’ll never go out of fashion (at least not while the Kardashians are still around!)
We all use mascara, eyeliner, and maybe even false lashes for the really dedicated ladies. But wouldn’t it be a dream to just wake up with thick, long, lashes and forego the morning makeup routine entirely? Enter lash extensions. Hollywood’s biggest beauty secret has hit the Sutherland Shire, and soon, your lashes.
You’ve seen them on celebs like Zooey Deschanel, JLO, and the aforementioned Kardashians, and now you too can get the look of fuller, thicker, and longer lashes (that look totally natural!). Interested yet? Before you run to the phone to book an appointment, let’s look at the pros and cons of rocking a set of long, sexy, thick eyelashes.
Lash Extensions – Pros & Cons
Pro: Younger, sexier eyes in an instant
Well, not quite an instant, but close your eyes and open them up to see a whole new pair staring back at you! Anyone who’s had lash extensions put in knows that the person walking out of the salon isn’t the same person who walked in. Lash extensions make your eyes look younger, sexier, and more dramatic, with thicker, longer lashes that look completely natural.
Con: It takes awhile to put them in
It can take anywhere from 2-3 hours to apply lash extensions – but it’s well worth the wait! You have to keep your eyes closed throughout this time, so you can’t flick through Instagram or a magazine. That said, it’s a great opportunity to have a little snooze! Give yourself some rest, meditate, listen to music, and wake up with a brand new set of eyelashes.
Pro: Lash extensions are long-lasting
False lashes are a great way to get thicker, longer eyelashes for a night out, but who can be bothered to put them on every morning? lash extensions might take a couple of hours to apply, but they can last up to six weeks. So for six glorious weeks, you can wake up with gorgeous eyelashes and skip your mascara, eyeliner, or false lash routine. Do some yoga, have a coffee, or just stay in bed a little longer instead!
Con: You’ve gotta keep them dry
It’s important not to get your precious new lash extensions wet for the first 24-48 hours after application. That means you’ll have to keep your face out of the shower for a couple of days and be careful when washing your face. Lash extensions also aren’t recommended for ladies who like to do lots of hot yoga, swimming, or use saunas or steam showers often. Sorry sporty ladies, you’ll have to stick to mascara, curlers, and false lashes for now!
Pro: You have loads of options
There’s plenty of choices when it comes to lash extensions, and you can go for a different look each time. With different lengths, curls, and colours available, you can play around and customise your lash extensions to get the perfect set of eyelashes you’ve always dreamed of. It’s a ‘new you’ every time!
Con: You might have to skip the eye creams
Oil-based or extra-rich eye creams can reduce the lifespan of your eyelash extensions. For ladies who use anti-wrinkle creams or eye creams, you’ll have to either stop using them while you’ve got your lashes in or keep using them but enjoy your sexy lash extensions for a shorter lifespan.
