With our increasingly busy lifestyles, we hardly have the time to go to extra lengths to apply false eyelashes. Thus, eyelash extensions are getting more popular, and have set the hearts of many a-flutter. Here, we address your eyelash extension questions, and introduce 5 places for eyelash extensions in Singapore for you to check out.
What are eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions come in 3 types -Â synthetic, silk and mink, ranging from 6mm to 17mm.Â Applying a full set of lashes takes about two hours, and can be maintained year-round with touch-ups recommended every three to four weeks.Â Everyone has different lashes, and depending on the condition of your own natural lashes, lash experts can only go a certain length or thickness.
Eyelash extensions will not cause blindness, and if you close your eyes during application, no glue can enter your eyes. However, some may develop allergic reactions towards the glue. Getting eyelash extensions should be entirely pain-free, so if your eyes burn up, you should certainly speak up and have the glue changed.
Keep water away from your lashes for the first 12 to 24 hours after application or touch-ups.Â Using water-proof mascara on the extensions is not recommended for any type of glue, as it is hard to remove and can actually pull off the lashes prematurely when trying to take it off.Â If you are planning to wear mascara in addition to the extensions, only use it on the tips of the extensions and with a very light hand.
Lash extensions will not ruin your own lashes, if applied correctly and properly.Â Be sure not to rub your eyes or tug or pull on the extensions because this can cause lash loss and even damage to your natural lashes. If lashes are applied properly and to each individual lash, they will not fall out.
