Eyelash extensions may be the most exciting beauty enhancement to hit the marketplace in generations, but there’s no doubt that they’re not for the faint of heart. In fact, any woman considering extensions should probably have a firm understanding of exactly what she’s hoping to achieve. After all, lash extensions can come in a variety of forms, and accomplish a number of different beauty goals – from simplifying your beauty regimen to creating a dramatic lash look that’s impossible to hide. Before choosing your lash style, here are just a few of the things you should consider.
How Dramatic is Too Dramatic?
One of the best things about eyelash extensions is that they can help you create so many different lash styles. Of course, some women go all-out with their lashes, and opt for the most dramatic look possible. They want long, thick, movie star lashes with that perfect curl their natural lashes could never achieve. Other women want a more understated look – perfect lashes that provide that everyday beauty aesthetic and a change that only their closest friends and family are likely to notice.
Before you choose, it’s important to consider just how dramatic you want your lash change to be. Are you looking for a truly glamorous look fit for a special event like a wedding? Or are you just looking for a way to achieve perfect lashes without going through the hassle of applying mascara and using a lash curler? To get your lashes just right, you’ll need to make that decision and discuss it with your lash artist before your application.
What Style Best Fits Your Eyes?
You’ll also need to consider your eyes’ shape, and the shape of your brow, if you want to pick the perfect lash style for your face. For example, if you have a thick brow bone and deep-set eyes, you can generally get away with longer, more voluminous lashes than normal. Round eyes tend to do extremely well with a cat’s eye style that has added volume at the outside edges of the eye. If your eyes are already your most prominent feature, you may want to try a style using varying lash lengths to provide a natural – but still stunning – lash look.
