We have had hair extensions for longer hair
contact lenses (even laser eye treatment) for better eyes, breast implants, liposuction, laser hair removal, ear stapling for weight loss even calf implants. We live in an age where if you feel that any aspect of your appearance is not perfect, there is a remedy readily available. The new fad now is eyelash extensions which started off in Asia but has not been slow in hitting the shores of Europe and the US.
Yes, eyelash extensions are the new craze and in New York
people are on waiting lists of up to two months to get an appointment. I once got a table at the Ivy in London (officially the most sought hard to get into restaurant in the UK) and only had to wait a week. Anyway, I digress. These extensions should not be confused with false eyelashes which have to be taken out and reapplied every day.
Eyelash extensions are attached to your own lashes individually using tweezers.
There is no need for mascara and the irony here is that eyelash extensions give you more of a natural look as they are attached to your natural eyelashes. You have the option of different lengths, thickness and even colors.
There is a risk however as each individual lash will only last for as long as the natural lash it is attached to lasts for.
The average life span of each eyelash is 2 months.
This is heavily dependent on your lifestyle and the strength of your eyelashes in the first place. As the cost of these extensions range from between $200 to $500, you would want to get your money’s worth. Be sure to use an expert as if these are applied incorrectly; well let’s just say you would save money on your Halloween outfit.
As with everything, there is a cheaper alternative.
Semi permanent eyelashes cost about $50 and can last anywhere between one to two weeks. They are easy to apply and give you the flexibility to take them out when you please.
Ever heard the saying, “eyes are the window to the soul”? Well beautiful eyes are create more of an impact than you can imagine.
