The eyes are an essential focal point of the face, which is why women take special pains in making sure they’ll catch the attention of every person they meet. Aside from skillfully applying eyeshadow, having longer and fuller lashes is a must if you want gorgeous eyes. Although layers of volumizing and lengthening mascaras will do the trick, more women are turning to eyelash extensions to achieve the look. But do eyelash extensions have any benefits? Here are the top 3 reasons why you should try eyelash extensions today.
1. LOOK AND FEEL YOUNGER
Thick, voluminous hair has always been associated with youth, and this goes not only for the hair on your scalp. Even facial and body hairs thin as people age, so it’s only natural for women (and men) to compensate for this by applying products that give the illusion of thicker hair. Extensions are ideal as the eyelashes look and feel natural, unlike when using mascara, where the eyelashes feel hard and dry and often quite lumpy. Eyelash extensions, on the other hand, will make you look younger even without makeup, and since you look younger, you’ll feel younger, too!
2. HIGH QUALITY EYELASH EXTENSIONS
Of course, there are other alternatives to eyelash extensions. Makeup companies offer a vast array of voluminizing, lengthening, and curling mascaras that you can choose from. Or you can try false eyelashes you can apply to your lash line by using a bit of cosmetic glue. While these two alternatives work, they only work for a much shorter period than eyelash extensions. Mascaras, unless waterproof, smudge and smear (good luck if you’re in a humid area!), and even the waterproof versions tend to lose luster by the end of the day. While false eyelashes can last the entire day, if you’re not careful with them, you might have to throw them away after just one use. One application of eyelash extensions will give you natural-looking fuller eyelashes for as long as 3-4 weeks, which is the length of the growth cycle of your own natural eyelashes.
3. SAVE TIME
Getting eyelash extensions cuts down on your makeup time. The popular “no makeup” makeup look can be achieved even faster! Not to mention, not having to buy mascara or ‘falsies’ will greatly reduce the cost of your makeup. Not only do your eyelash extensions save you time during the morning routine, they make you look gorgeous from the moment you wake up in the morning and keep your eyes beautiful throughout the day. Try it, it’s really worth it!
