It’s no secret that a woman’s eyes have long been the ultimate weapon of seduction. Longer lashes add depth and intensity to your eyes, enhancing their natural expression. There are many ways to extend eyelashes but unfortunately, many of them are disappointing.
From mascaras to falsies, extensions to perming, and even implants, us girls will do just about anything to get our peepers to look brighter and bigger!
Reach beyond with eyelash extensions…
Let’s talk about eyelash extensions, shall we? The permanent kind – applied one by one with a medical grade adhesive. Permanent Mink Lashes are a beauty must try… I personally simply cannot live without them! I’ve had my Lash4Ever lashes on for five years and I can’t imagine not having them. They really are like a mini eyelift, just (thankfully!) without the needles.
These extensions are pre-curved and are directly applied one by one on natural eyelashes, using a special adhesive exclusively designed for lash extensions. They stay in place during your natural eyelash’s lifespan. We do eyelash extensions at The Lash Bar in just over an hour, achieving beautifully natural, lush lashes.
What I love about these extensions is I don’t have to worry about applying mascara or removing it. No need to worry about sweating off mascara at the gym or in that hot yoga class. My Lash4Evers wear throughout the daily activities in my life, adding glam to every minute of it. Best part, I only have to do my refills every four weeks.
My Top 3 reasons eyelash extensions are amazing…
1 Every day you wake up half prepared. You save time on your makeup routine, and on those lazy days when you don’t want to fuss with makeup at all you’ll still look gorgeous. This is the best reason… You just wake up beautiful! This is something that falsies and mascaras cannot beat.
2 Especially during busy times – like the holiday season – hassle-free eyelash extensions mean you can go from day to night without fussing with mascara re-applications or falsie eyelash glues.
3 Eyelash extensions – when done right – can look very natural; completely like real long lashes, or look ultra thick and dramatic. It’s all up to your preference!
Customize your look…
My choice of lash is a more natural cat eye effect. Although, you can choose which look you prefer. And you can always use something like Lash4Ever daily wear mascara to volumize your custom look for that glitzy night out. I use HDi-lash and brow duo gel on a daily basis – a clear gel that hydrates and glosses my extensions.
Worth every penny…
Quality is… well… quality! You definitely pay for what you get. There are some places that charge $35 for a “full set of mink lashes”. Let me tell you, from the lash queen herself, don’t do it! Real mink lashes or even synthetic mink lash services are ranged from $185 to $250. Refills every 4 to 6 weeks range from $65 to $95. You can even tray a half set of lashes which are generally priced around $125.
Don’t cheap yourself out when it comes to your eyes and your lashes. You can’t pay $40 for shoes and expect them to wear like a pair worth $400. The same applies to beauty services. If you have gone to a place and gotten a job done you were not satisfied with, don’t give it up. Spend the extra money to get the job done right, and I can guarantee you will be more than happy. A well-trained professional can even remove, say, extenstions you’ve had applied before and start fresh. (Most places do the removal for free when applying a new set.)
Get it yourself…
It’s very important when getting eyelashes done to be sure the place you’re going specializes in lash enhancements. Trust me, I’ve seen and heard of horror stories!
