Overview of Professional Fake Eyelashes
Applying professional fake eyelash extensions to your own lashes is often not recommended. You could do it, but if you are not careful it could result in discomfort or injury.
That is why it is advised that you seek the right certified help from the right professional. Semi-permanent eyelash extensions applied in just the right way can provide you with just the right look.
The Application Process
If you want quality fake eyelashes it is best if you find ones that are applied one extension at a time. This will ensure a natural, elegant look. It will also add fullness to your existing lashes.
Eyelash extensions are usually designed to adhere to one's natural eyelash. They can last for up to six weeks, or even up to 120 days, depending on the cycle of natural eyelash hair growth.
They are applied to individual eyelashes, and the best ones are applied one by one. However, you can find semi-circle sets of fake eyelashes that are utilized for quicker application.
The best extensions of fake eyelashes are ones that are comprised of individual synthetic eyelashes. They are curved to replicate a natural eyelash and applied on a lash-by-lash basis.
Fake eyelashes applied one at a time to each natural lash strands provide the most natural look. They can last up to 8 weeks or in some cases even much longer.
The eyelash extensions that you get at salons are mostly synthetic fibers. However, mink lashes are also available in the United States. They also may be made from real human hair, synthetic material or in some cases, silk.
The availability of materials used depends upon where you live in the world. Remember that you want ones that are made so that they are firm enough that they curl up like a natural lash.
Ones made with too soft of a material could droop down and wind up looking sloppy. On the other hand, it helps if these synthetic extensions are soft enough so that they look natural. You also may want to find fake eyelashes that are not too long or that do not flare out at the ends.
About 30 to 80 lashes are applied with the help of a surgical grade adhesive. The process of applying professional fake eyelash extensions usually takes about 1.5 to 3 hours.
If you want to preserve your look, in certain cases you can seek fills or touch ups every few weeks. It may depend upon the type and quality of lashes you have applied. It may also depend upon what exact process is used to apply them as it may vary slightly from salon to salon.
Eyelash extensions are never applied to your eyelids (or at least they never should be). As long as they are applied correctly you should have no worries.
In any case, for the most part the procedure is pain-free. It will not harm your eyelids or natural lashes. With proper care they will last for quite awhile and you will get the look you need.
