As someone who works in fashion, I'm always looking for the top beauty hacks for you ladies out there. So when my best friend got eyelash extensions, I had to look into it!
You may have wondered in the past if lash extensions would look good on you and I can say that they look good on basically everyone IF done right. But if you're looking for a more subtle look but still want gorgeous lashes then a lash lift might be for you.
Let's Break It Down
What is an eyelash extension?
An eyelash extension is basically fake lashes glued 1 mm above your natural lash. It's longer and gives the impression that your natural lash is this long.
Duration: 3-4 weeks then they fall off.
Pro: Fabulous looking lashes (duh!), your makeup routine goes WAY faster (aka. more sleep in the AM), you can have different styles with the different amount of lashes you choose and no more mascara.
Con: It's a bit pricey, they're a lot of maintenance and it can take a couple of hours to do.
What is an eyelash lift?
An eyelash lift is using your natural lashes and lifting them. It's basically a perm for lashes where you get a curl. There are 2 options: either you get a normal lash lift or you get a lash lift with a tint which darkens your "eyeliner" line.
Duration: 6-8 weeks (some people even 12!)
Pro: It's on your natural lashes but damages them less than eyelash extension because there's no glue, low maintenance, can still apply mascara if you want a more dramatic look and you can do anything and the shape holds also it's cheaper than lash extensions
Cons: it's not a dramatic look so if you want a fuller look eyelash extensions may be a better fit for you.
