There are a lot of preconceived notions about synthetic eyelashes. Some people think that they hurt to put on, or that they fall off easily and are not to be worn in water. The truth is, eyelash extensions are much different run-of-the-mill fake lashes. Lash extensions are much more like your actual eyelashes than stiff, unnatural ones. If you have been thinking about having eyelash extensions applied, keep reading to find out the answers to some commonly asked questions:
What Are Eyelash Extensions Made Out Of?
Eyelash extensions can be made out of a number of different materials, but one of the most common materials are single fiber polyester thread-like materials which help create a fuller, longer look.
How Long Do Eyelash Extensions Last?
Your first eyelash extension application will last for several weeks, and with regular maintenance and a few return visits they can last for much longer than a few weeks. With extensions you won’t have to worry about messing around with sticky glues or taking time out of your daily schedule to apply your lashes every morning, either.
Why Do I Need To Come Back To Get My Lashes Filled?
Much like the hair on your head, you shed eyelashes on a regular cycle. When your natural eyelashes grow the older ones fall out in order to make room for the newer ones. Because eyelash extensions are attached to your natural lashes, they will fall out during the shedding cycle, meaning you will have to return to your Atlanta makeup artist to have them filled.
Am I Still Going To Have To Apply Mascara?
No! Once you have your extensions applied, there is no need to use mascara as your lashes will be long, dark and luxuriously thick. For a lot of folks this seals the deal, because you will not only have beautiful looking lashes, you will also have some extra money in your pocket book from your mascara savings.
