Considering brushing up on your lash game? Here are a few things you need to know before you book your appointment.
Eyelash extensions are individual synthetic eyelashes that are applied to the natural lashes, one at a time. It enhances the natural lashes to make them appear thicker, longer and a whole lot more fluttery. The best part is – you can choose your lash length based on if you’re going for a natural or a Kim K inspired look.
Even the natural option will up your make-up game immensely. It will also make you feel more confident on those ‘no make-up’ make-up days, simply add a BB- or CC cream and you’re good. Lash extensions can even help us working moms fool others into thinking we had enough sleep, as the length and curve of the lashes makes our eyes appear more open and ‘awake’.
How long do they last? Previous methods lasted about 2 to 4 weeks before needing a refill, but this set Charmain (the lash girl below) put on for me will last 6-8 weeks. Charmain is the first lash master to have attended an international course, bringing this new technique to South Africa.
A new set of lashes can vary in price, anything from R500 to R1000. Luckily filling lashes are relatively inexpensive and it doesn’t take as long as when you initially have them applied, so it is just the first time that will be cost- and time-taxing.
So far, I’ve had no issues with them! No sensitivities, no red or dry eyes, none falling out while showering, no heaviness !
I’m enjoying the benefit of reduced time to make-up and when i’m exercising I don’ t look totally drab! I haven’t had lashes for 9 years, but with this improved technique and actual lashes, I might keep on doing this!
