Austin’s Fall season is a great time to up your game. And Austin’s Fall 2014 Look? Eyelash Extensions! As the weather cools off, why not go for a more dramatic look to keep your appearance fresh? You don’t have to get a complete makeover to make a dramatic impact. All you need are eyelash extensions!
What Are Eyelash Extensions?
A time-saving alternative to applying artificial eyelashes each day, eyelash extensions are a type of lash applied directly to your current eyelashes to give you a bright, wide-eyed look. Extensions can be made of mink, silk or synthetic materials. Mink lashes will look the most natural and put the least weight on your own lashes, but they are more expensive. Extensions can come in different sizes, which, in conjunction with material and whether you receive a full or half set, can give a more or less dramatic or artificial appearance.
Once you have decided whether eyelash extensions are right for you, select a reputable salon, and book your appointment. Keep in mind the appointment may take roughly an hour or more. The process is lengthy because the technician will use tweezers to adhere your extensions one by one to your own natural ones with semi-permanent glue. You will be asked to keep your eyes closed for the duration of your session to keep glue out of your eyes, so relax and enjoy the experience.
How to Maintain Your Eyelash Extensions
Eyelash extensions require much less maintenance time than you’re probably used to from your usual beauty routine. You will need to avoid water for up to 24 hours to make sure the glue sets, and ask your technician for recommendations on how to care for your specific type of lashes. Waterproof mascara is not recommended because it is difficult to remove without damaging or removing your extensions. In fact, you won’t need much mascara, and if you do use it, just apply a little to the tips of the lashes.
This fall, get a bold new look with Austin eyelash extensions. You’ll be glad you did.
