15 Dec Eyelash Lifting vs. Eyelash Extensions
Many beauty bloggers and makeup enthusiasts use different methods for intensifying the look of their lashes. A lash lift and eyelash extensions are two popular, innovative options. If you’re unfamiliar with these services, how do you determine which one is right for you? Let’s take a look:
What is a lash lift?
This is a treatment that enhances the look of natural eyelashes. A Keratin-based product (perming lotion) is applied to each individual lash to create a lifting effect. The procedure makes your natural eyelashes appear thicker and fuller. Since only your personal eyelashes are involved, lash lifts can appear more “natural.”
- Pros – Other than being natural looking, a lash lifts helps sort out problems with longer, untamed eyelashes. If you have lashes that seem to crisscross, a good lash lift can help make them more manageable. Lash lifts also require less maintenance time than some other services. They also are unlikely to cause any eye irritation.
- Cons – Since lash lifts only work on natural lashes, it may be harder to get the desired look when you have shorter ones. You’re limited to what your natural lashes are capable of doing. Check with your spa or beauty service provider to find out if lash lifts are the right option for you.
What is an eyelash extension?
For a more dramatic look, lash extensions can be the way to go. Extensions involve applying synthetic lashes to natural ones to improve length and volume.
- Pros – Eyelash extensions can save time because mascara becomes unnecessary. They add length, volume, and a dramatic effect to lashes. They can last up to four weeks, depending on the growth speed of your eyelashes.
- Cons- More maintenance is required for this option than lash lifts. Also, some might argue extensions can give a “less natural” look. Find a trusted professional and ask about extensions. You want to enlist an expert to prevent clumping or twisting of your natural eyelashes.
Both lash lifts and lash extensions can improve your appearance. Consult a professional spa or salon to get advice.
