False eyelashes are a convenient way to save time while applying makeup. Women who choose eyelash extensions can choose from several types of products and methods. The safest and most effective treatment is the professional eyelash extension at the beautician's. How are they carried out and what are the results? Artificial eyelashes, glued to natural ones, give the effect of an impressive "curtain". There are several types of artificial eyelashes for independent application on the market, but the best solution is to go to a beautician who chooses the type of eyelashes and decides which method of applying them is the least burdensome for natural hair. The procedure takes about 1.5-3 hours and the effect lasts up to 6 weeks, however, it is recommended to regularly supplement your eyelashes every 3 weeks. Before the procedure, darken your eyelashes with henna to make them easier to separate. By the way, thanks to such a solution, the difference between the natural color and the attached elements is not very visible, because eyelashes are stuck 1 mm above the surface of the skin.
Eyelash extension and thickening - ready to use
The most popular method of eyelash extension and thickening are ready-made templates. And although there are many template variants, this method has one major drawback - the effect is very short-lived. This solution is recommended for a special occasion - a ball or other event. Tufts of eyelashes are another method of thickening eyelashes. It is nothing more than a "attachment" consisting of several artificial eyelashes, which sticks to the natural eyelashes. Unfortunately, this method has more disadvantages - it is not permanent, eyelashes do not arrange evenly. However, the procedure itself is short - unlike the 1 to 1 or other volume eyelashes method.
Types of false eyelashes - silk eyelashes
This type of eyelash is made of natural silk proteins, thanks to which their curl resembles that characteristic for natural eyelashes. Their great advantage is lightness, thanks to which they do not burden eyelashes. It is worth, however, to obtain a comb, which should be combed every morning in order to align them and give them the desired shape, because it happens that the silk eyelashes lightly crumple during sleep. In silk eyelashes, you can swim, wear contact lenses and do makeup without fear, but it's worth giving up strong, waterproof mascaras. Washing them damages both natural and artificial eyelashes.
Types of false eyelashes - Siberian mink eyelashes
The biggest advantage of Siberian mink fur eyelashes is that each eyelash has a similar thickness, but a different length, so after gluing, they best imitate natural ones. In addition, they are light and delicate, do not burden real eyelashes. However, before we decide to put them on, let's check if we are allergic to mink fur. It should also be remembered that if we want to additionally paint eyelashes with mascara, we should only choose those based on water. Others can adversely affect the condition of eyelashes and shorten the durability of the glue.
Types of artificial eyelashes - synthetic eyelashes
The least flexible and delicate, but with the most regular shape, are synthetic eyelashes. On the market you can find products of different thickness, length and degree of curling, making it easier to find those with the most optimal dimensions. It is also worth adding that, unlike silk and fur lashes, synthetic mink does not cause allergies. Synthetic eyelashes, however, are less flexible and like to tangle, so be careful not to damage them when combing.
Is thickening eyelashes safe?
Thickening eyelashes is safe. Natural products are used for it, so the risk of irritation is minimal. After applying eyelashes, you can use the pool and wear lenses. However, you should remember about proper care for thickened eyelashes - gentle but thorough makeup removal and combing them. Then the effect will last longer.
Thickening eyelashes - contraindications
Thickening eyelashes is safe, but you must take into account the features of our skin. One is more sensitive, the other less, and another is very allergic. What are the contraindications to thickening eyelashes? These are: skin diseases, allergic eye diseases, lack of own eyelashes, dry eye syndrome, glaucoma, cataracts, conjunctivitis, abscess, cold sores, allergy to eyelash glue.
The precise application is it!
Precise gluing of artificial eyelashes is a difficult art, but it is a way to effective success. Do not be discouraged by the first failures and try to apply the application as accurately as possible to achieve the natural look of the eye frame. When choosing eyelashes on one strip, cut them first to the correct length and remember - for the effect to be natural, eyelashes must not protrude beyond the edge of the eye. Use special glue. Apply false eyelashes to it, then glue them to the eyelid, pressing for a few seconds around the inner and outer corner of the eye. Eyelashes should not be glued too high, let's try to base them on our eyelashes, then the effect will be natural, and we will protect against the undesirable effect of double eyelashes.
