One of the best kept secrets in Hollywood is eyelash extensions for actresses and entertainers. Through salons and spas, women are creating dramatic looks with fake eyelashes. A professional LVL lashes London beautician can apply the lashes, which last approximately 6 weeks with normal wear. Click the link for my recommended best eyelash extensions London salon. To care for artificial lashes, no chemicals or solvents should be applied: Since they are bonded with an adhesive similar to hair extensions, it takes a while for them to “set” for a strong hold.
The first 24 hours after application of lash extensions is the most crucial. Each eyelash is placed individually; making it important to stay out of pools and showers for the setting period. Oily makeup should also be avoided; instead opt for water based foundations and eye shadows.
It is true you might not be on the cover of a magazine, but women still like to look their best. With the development of both lash extensions and hair extensions, women are able to find the look that makes them feel young and beautiful. Some may say it’s superficial to want to improve one’s looks; however boosting self-esteem is a great way to be confident in other areas of life when you know you look attractive.
Along with artificial lashes there are also airbrushing techniques for adding colour to skin as well as permanent tattooing for lining lips and eyes. Finding the right combination of makeup techniques for your needs is a matter of researching new techniques used by actresses and others, and implementing the one or two that help you personally.
When it comes to choosing the right extension there are more choices than might – literally in this case – meet the eye. The most three common types of eyelash extensions are individual lash extensions, strip lash extensions and cluster lash extensions. The process of applying individual lash extensions can be extremely time consuming, as each individual extension is applied to each individual eyelash. This procedure can also be expensive. In contrast in terms of ease come the strip lash extensions which are often simply referred to as false lashes. The strip lash extensions tend to last a fortnight on average, are much cheaper and are commonly used for those attending one day special events. The cluster lash extensions are clumps of lashes that are bound in a ‘v’ shape and save time as several eyelash extensions can be applied at once. There is also choice in terms of the length and density of the clusters. The cluster lash extensions bring another choice with them and that is whether they are knotted with a small knot at the tip of the cluster or are knot free. The knotted clusters have the advantage of creating a larger area for the glue to be applied but also bring the disadvantage of adding additional weight to the lash.
Another choice that needs consideration when choosing eyelash extensions is the material they are made from. It is possible to get lashes made from real human hair that has been sanitised, although perhaps more common are the synthetic eyelash extensions made from quality materials that are safe for the skin. Other options include silk and mink lashes and it is even possible these days if you can afford it to have an eyelash transplant.
