What are the benefits of eyelash extensions?

There are many reasons why the installation of extensions may be considered. So, first of all, it is best to ask yourself about the benefit, in your case, of installing extensions and to make sure that it would suit you.

Avoid mascara

One of the advantages of extensions is obviously being able to leave your mascara in the closet! Yes, eyelash extensions give you elongated eyelashes without having to apply mascara every day. You save time, money, and you avoid the inconvenience associated with makeup that fades, runs and irritates your eyes. This is particularly useful if your eyes are fragile and tend to easily redden and be irritated by makeup.

Hide eyelash loss or thin eyelashes

Eyelash extensions can also be considered if you are losing your eyelashes, whether it is simply due to age or illness.

 

Eyelash extension: what exactly does it consist of?

Eyelash extension will, quite simply, consist of adding hairs in order to give more volume and length to the eyelashes . There are several types of extensions.

Eyelash to eyelash application

Eyelash to eyelash application is recommended for a natural effect . To give an effect of volume and length, a synthetic eyelash is attached to a natural eyelash. The extension can be applied to all natural eyelashes or alternately, every 2nd or 3rd eyelash, depending on the desired effect.

The Russian volume

Offering a more extravagant and voluminous effect, Russian volume eyelash extension consists of attaching several artificial eyelashes to the same natural eyelash. Multiplied, they bring intensity to your eyes and enhance it!

What's the difference with false eyelashes?

There is often confusion between false eyelashes and eyelash extensions . However, these are 2 very different techniques for beautifying the eyes. While false eyelashes are more easily attached (you can even do it yourself at home), they are designed for temporary use. Conversely, eyelash extensions benefit from much better hold .

In addition, the application is not done in the same way: false eyelashes are attached to the eyelid, while extensions are placed directly on the natural eyelashes. Thus, eyelash extensions are, of course, more expensive, but offer better results and several weeks of peace of mind after application.

How does the installation take place?

The installation of extensions takes place in an institute or in a specialized establishment. This treatment, requiring great precision and mastery, must be carried out by an expert.

The application begins with a discussion with the beautician and an analysis of your eyes.

A patch is then placed under your eyes to protect them from the glue that will be used during installation. We will then clean and prepare the eyelashes .

Once the eyelashes are clean, we proceed with the application using tweezers to isolate the natural eyelashes as well as to manipulate the extension. Once this step is completed - completely painless! - finished, we make sure that everything is in place and that you do not feel any discomfort.

Maintaining eyelash extensions

Once your extensions are installed, you will need to take care of them using a small eyelash brush.

Afterwards, a filling will be necessary every 3 to 4 weeks because the extensions have a limited lifespan. As eyelashes can fall out, filling will replace them and ensure that your eyes still look as beautiful.
