My wife is obsessed with makeup, which is why I usually try to get her something special for her birthday. Unfortunately, last year, my gift really fell flat. I purchased an eyeshadow kit that was chock full of colors, but the actual powders weren't the best quality. It was frustrating for her, and I felt really bad that I hadn't invested more into the gift. However, I did some research to learn more about makeup and brands, and now I can buy cosmetics with the best of them. Check out this blog for great ways to tell good products from the bad.
Your eyelashes can be an important feature of your face that can help to catch the attention of those that are looking at you. To heighten this effect, it is common to have eyelash extensions applied. These extensions can be a convenient way of making your eyelashes appear longer and more full. Here are several tips you can use to make the most of your new extensions.
Keep the Eyelash Extensions Dry on the First Day
During the first day that you have the eyelash extensions, you should be extremely diligent about keeping them dry. If the eyelash extensions get wet before the adhesive has had time to fully dry, it could cause them to loosen much sooner than you expect them to. If the extensions do get wet, you should very gently blot them dry so that the moisture will be in contact with the adhesive for as short of a period of time as possible. For this reason, it is often advisable to shower before you have the lash extensions applied so that you will be able to easily keep them dry until the adhesive sets.
Be Careful When Using Makeup Removers
Makeup removers can be extremely damaging to eyelash extensions. These substances will often contain alcohol as a base ingredient, and this can degrade the eyelash extensions themselves while also weakening the adhesive. While makeup removers can be a necessary part of your cleaning and skincare routine, it is important to ensure that you choose makeup removers that are alcohol-free and safe for eyelash extensions. Otherwise, you may find that your extensions will need to be redone far more quickly. Luckily, most beauty salons and other locations that apply eyelash extensions will often sell makeup remover products that are compatible with eyelash extensions.
Have the Eyelash Extensions Professionally Removed or Reapplied
After a month or so, you will need to consider whether you are wanting to have the extensions reapplied or removed. For those that are wanting to simply remove the extensions, it is important to avoid attempting to do this without professional help. Otherwise, you could accidentally remove many of your natural eyelashes, which could be painful and impact your appearance. Fortunately, a professional technician will be able to safely and painlessly remove the eyelash extensions for you. For those that are wanting to have the eyelash extensions reapplied, it should be noted that this will take slightly longer than the original application due to the fact that the old extensions will have to be removed before the new ones will be able to be applied.
