It is true that the eyes are the windows to the soul.
And we as women use that to our advantage: We bat our lashes when flirting, accentuating them by applying loads of mascara, and now-- adding false eyelashes.
The latest craze in the beauty industry is to make your eyelashes bigger and bolder. And I love the idea. However, my only issue is, when they are too heavy and not applied properly, they can make the woman who is wearing them look like Mr. Snuffleupagus.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with emphasizing your eyelashes, but it should look natural.
Should you decide to apply false eyelashes, here are a few important factors to keep in mind. First and foremost, DO NOT USE HAIR BONDING GLUE. The glue that is used to apply hair extensions is not FDA approved for using around the eyes.
The latex in the glue is different than what is in eyelash glue and can cause damage to the eyes, such as an allergic reaction and swelling. It will cause your natural eyelashes to break and it will take a long time for them to grow back. If a “professional” tells you hair bonding glue is harmless, leave.
When applying the eyelash strips, use a thin layer of glue along the seam and apply to your lash line as close as possible. I prefer placing them at the center of the lash line, then moving outward to each corner.
For individual eyelashes, grab the eyelash with tweezers and use a very tiny amount of glue on the tip. On average, seven two twelve individuals per eye is very pretty.
The more you put on, the heavier they will appear. They look the best when placed in between your natural eyelashes, not on top of them or underneath. And remember: They are suppose to last at least a week, not an entire month.
Eyelash extensions are applied by trained professionals. This two-hour process is very expensive, but yields beautiful results. Once applied, they cannot be removed unless you use a remover specifically formulated for the adhesive.
I've heard stories of women trying to take them off and pulling their own eyelashes off with them. So before trying this technique, be sure to consult a beauty expert.
Like anything else, I cannot stress the importance of researching a product or service before trying something new.
