Over the last couple of years, the obsession with perfect eyebrows has somewhat subsided, leaving space for a new obsession with eyelashes! The world of lashes can seem a bit overwhelming with so many options about, but they can help you achieve so many things. Want to create a dramatic eye look? Grab some lashes. Want a low maintenance natural no makeup look? Have a lash lift and tint. Want a lasting glamourous look? Book in for your lash extensions. There are so many different options available to suit everyone’s needs so have a read below to see what will suit you.
For those who don’t want to have to do a full makeup routine everyday, lash extensions seem perfect, as you can wake up and have full, long and dark lashes ready to go without needing any mascara. Yes please! Because the lashes are applied individually they can look super natural. With a choice of silk, synthetic or mink eyelashes, you can carefully tailor the lashes to suit you. Also, with the proper care, they can last for over a month. However, there are a few problems people face when having lash extensions. Firstly, they are very high maintenance, as you have to carefully brush them everyday, be extremely careful when removing makeup and also can’t get them wet for around 48 hours after the initial treatment. Overall, they last really well and look great as long as you’re prepared to look after them!
Lash Lift and Tint
Lash lifts and tints are a great option for people who want a more low maintenance look, as it gives an attractive curl to lashes as well as visually opening the eye for older customers whose eyes may be slightly less elastic. It gives the appearance of longer and thicker eyelashes without the need for mascara, so make the most of what nature gave you! It usually takes around 45 minutes but the effects can last for around 6 weeks with minimal aftercare which is a bonus. No matter which of the treatments you choose, be sure to do you research and go to a specialist aesthetic clinic who will be able to give you an effective as well as safe treatment!
Although strips of lashes that are applied with adhesives only last for the day, they are by far the cheapest and quickest option. Available from most high street shops at a range of prices, strips of eyelashes can completely transform a makeup look. You can choose small, natural lashes or opt for a more glamorous look, as well as everything in between! You also have the choice to change up your look from day to night. Not only this, but you can rewear the lashes over and over again, depending on the quality and how well you look after them. Aside from how good they look, they can also benefit your natural lashes. Unlike mascara that can leave your lashes weak, false eyelashes reduce the impact on your lashes. If you are going for the strip lash option, I’d definitely recommend packing your lash glue to avoid any major malfunctions! We of course want to look after our eyes, so using a good brand of eyelash glue is suggested.
