When it comes to lashes, many women don’t have the time or patience to apply fake lashes every day. Now there’s a simpler way to get the long beautiful lashes without all the hard work that it actually takes to apply them. Eyelash extensions allow you to add volume and length to your existing lash line using false lashes, typically applied one at a time. They're glued on, so they last longer than typical falsies and when done properly, they feel just like your normal lashes. There are three different types of eyelash extensions: synthetic, silk and mink. Highbrow beauty offers mink and silk which are both synthetic. They not only come in different materials, they are also available in different lengths, which range from 6mm to 17mm. The process of getting eyelash extensions applied takes about a 2 hour period, depending on how many lashes you get done. The lashes are applied one at a time using a semi-permanent glue that will not irritate the eye or damage the natural lash. Now when it comes to how long or full you want your lashes to look, it depends on your natural lashes length and thickness. Since the eyelash extension is mended onto your own eyelash, it is best to start with fewer lashes first since you don’t want your eyelash to look too heavy. It is extremely important to get your eyelashes done by a professional, since the wrong technique can cause side effects such as irritation, having your lashes falls out or even gaps and spacing in between applied lashes.
The upkeep after getting your lashes done can be the most challenging part for people. Now that you’ve got your long pretty lashes, you need to change your routine in order to keep them looking long at full. Normally you should be sure to not expose your eyes to heat or water for the first 24 hours that you get your eyelash extensions done. Highbrow beauty uses a special glue that only has a 3 hour drying time instead of 24 hours! In order to keep your lashes looking fabulous you need to maintain your lashes by getting them filled every three to four weeks.
