Eyelash extensions are something that is gaining its place in the hearts of the modern fashion-conscious women. They are false extensions that are glued to your natural eyelashes giving your eyes a fuller look and thus making you look prettier. Several women do not have the time to apply mascara or false lashes on a daily basis to make the eyes look pretty and therefore, having extensions is the best alternative that stays for as long as a year provided there are regular touch-ups and filling. This eliminates the need to try and look pretty on a daily basis when you already have them in your eyes as extensions.
They may be several amongst you would refrain from having them on your eyes. Several questions and thoughts come about when someone suggests you to try them and apply it to yourself. Here are the answers to the questions and few myths that have been busted, and the reality follows.
What is it all about?
The extensions are made up of synthetic fibre, mink or silk fibre that are glued to each natural eyelash and is done so in the most professional way ensuring that no two eyelashes are stuck with each other. If done by professionals the maximum time taken to fix the extensions is about two hours if not more. The glue used to stick them to your lashes is made of the safest material to ensure that you do not incur allergies or irritation out of it.
Will the glue get into the eyes and make it blind?
Well, there are no chances for either of it to happen as while the extension is being applied, your eyes would be closed. The glue used to stick them is fast drying from the surface, and therefore, once you are done with the entire process and then open your eyes, it wouldn’t drip and get into your eyes. It takes a minimum of 48 hours for the glue to dry completely and stick to your lashes. The experts would advise you not to wet the eyes or use any makeup to allow the extensions not to fall off.
How often are touch-ups required?
As you perform your daily activities such as bathing, washing your face and sleeping, there are chances of the extensions falling off accidentally and, therefore, there is a need of touch-ups after every four weeks. Touch-ups include the application of glue to the existing lashes and adding new ones if there are a few missing. As they are safe, it wouldn’t have any ill effects on your natural lashes and thus keeping them intact forever.
