Eyelash Extensions

Have you ever noticed that models or stars on TV commercials, in magazine ads, and on movie posters usually have out-of-this-world eyelashes? It's unreal. I mean, I use mascara—usually some brand or type that promises increased length or volume—and I curl my lashes; I can often achieve some illusion of illustrious lashes, but nothing like those Hollywood starlets. So, let's get real: few people have eyelashes that are naturally ten feet long. If you are a part of the group whose members lack such lashes, this article is for you. You can try different mascaras and settle for your natural eyelashes, or you can take a chance and try out some eyelash extensions.

I think that in most cases, it's a safer cosmetic move to settle for less-than-luscious lashes; if extensions go awry, it can be a disaster. If you do want to experiment with eyelash extensions, however, here are a few tips that can help you on your way. When you're looking for eyelash extensions, especially for everyday use, don't opt for something outlandish. Sure the half-inch–long blue lashes may complement your Friday party outfit, but are they really appropriate for everyday? For lashes to use on a daily basis (or for lashes that will be put on professionally to last for a while) go for something that looks natural; you can still have long and full lashes that look natural.

You have a few options when choosing eyelash extensions. Most cosmetics companies produce do-it-yourself false lashes, or you can go in and have them applied professionally. You'll want them applied professionally if your eyelash extensions are for more than just a night out on the town, if they're for everyday use. However, if you just need false eyelashes for a special occasion, you should be okay applying them yourself. If you do apply eyelash extensions yourself, make sure to follow the directions on the package; otherwise you could make an easily avoided mistake. If you're getting your lashes applied professionally, make sure that you're going to a legitimate establishment that performs quality work. Again, you don't want to end up with something that looks really scary. Something to be said for professional, long-lasting lash extensions is that they can take away the clumpy look that mascara can leave, and they can look completely natural.

So if you're ever contemplating the possibility of pumping up your lashes a bit, do check out eyelash extensions. The one word of caution to keep in mind, however, is that you want to look natural, not like a doll. As long as you keep that in mind, you will be able to find eyelash extension success however you try!
