Almost all makeup looks involve focusing on the eyes, and false eyelashes and eyelash extensions are a great way to take your eye look to the next level. Long, thick lashes can amp up a smoky eye, and they can make even a basic cat eye look dramatic. While both false eyelashes and eyelash extensions can achieve a similar look, the way they do so is quite different, and extensions are more versatile and involve less hassle.
Here are five ways that eyelash extensions are superior to falsies.
Extensions Look Natural
Lash extensions are made of high-quality materials , which gives them the appearance of natural lashes. They are also applied individually, ensuring that they are distributed in a way that emulates the way lashes grow. While there are a few high-quality false lashes available, the majority are made from lower quality materials, and they are also applied via a strip, so false lashes often look fake.
Eyelash extensions last for six to eight weeks, which is the natural growth cycle for eyelashes. This means that they stay in place in almost exactly the same way that your natural eyelashes do. False lashes, on the other hand, are applied with glue, so heat, moisture or poor quality glue can cause them to fall off or start to peel from your eye.
Our lash extensions doesn’t just look like your own eyelashes; they have the same weight and feel. As a result, eyelash extensions are lightweight and don’t feel any different from your own lashes. Fake lashes tend to be made of much heavier materials, and between the lash band and glue, they can make your eyelids feel heavy and weighed down.
Since false lashes are only held on by glue, they won’t stay on during a variety of activities. Going in the water, spending the day at an amusement park or doing something that makes you sweat a lot will almost certainly result in trouble with false lashes. On the other hand, lash extensions will stay put just like your natural lashes, so there’s no activity you can do that will result in them falling out.
It can take about two hours to have lash extensions put in, but after that, you are set for the next two months or so. With falsies, you need to apply them every day and take them off at night. False eyelashes can take several minutes to apply, and you also need to cover them up with makeup so that the eyelash band and glue don’t show. With extensions, you can roll out of bed with long and luxurious lashes.
