Long, thick eyelashes are the envy of practically every woman (and many men) in the world, and if you spend any time scrolling Instagram, you’ll see that every celebrity seems to have amazing lashes, even when they claim not to be wearing any makeup. Did you know that the reason their eyelashes look great isn’t because they’re wearing glue-on lashes, or lying to you, but because they have eyelash extensions?
Eyelash extensions may be just what you need to feel more confident and get out the door faster each morning. Read on to discover 5 reasons you should invest in eyelash extensions:
Thick, long lashes instantly make you look more youthful, make your eyes look bigger and brighter, and they enhance the colour of your eyes. People you see every day will comment about how you look healthier, happier, or just that you look especially good that day.
You Can Go Without Makeup
You know those days that you’d just prefer to skip doing your makeup, but dread seeing someone you know? While we’d all love to have the confidence to leave the house no matter what we look like, most of us don’t. Eyelash extensions give you a slight enhancement so you can leave the house or go to the gym without any makeup on and have your normal level of confidence.
Even if you don’t think you want to have eyelash extensions year-round, they are a great solution for while you go away on holiday, or if you live in a hot climate. The last thing anyone wants to do when it’s hot outside is to cover their skin up with makeup. If you have eyelash extensions you can apply your sunscreen and skincare and go about your life knowing your skin can breathe.
You Can’t Feel Your Eyelash Extensions
Glue-on eyelash extensions are heavy, feel uncomfortable after a day of wear, and sit on top of your lashes. Even mascara starts to feel irritating if you’ve accidentally applied it too heavily or have left it on too long. Eyelash extensions are applied by a professional, are weightless, and you’ll forget they’re there after a day of wear.
You Can Do Anything in Them
(And not just because you’ve got extra confidence!) Unlike mascara and glue-on eyelashes, you can get your eyelash extensions wet, you can shower as normal, and even swim after just 48 hours after your appointment.
You Have to Take Time For Yourself
How often do you allow yourself to be pampered for at least half an hour? Getting eyelash extensions forces you to take some time for self-care, to lie down, destress, and let a professional pamper you while you take some time to slow down and relax.
Where Can I Get Eyelash Extensions Near Me?
You have a few different options for where to go for eyelash extensions, depending on where you are in the world. Often, the easiest way to get it is to simply book an appointment at an eyelash extension salon near you. If you’re in Sydney CBD, you can come directly to our salon (click here for directions and to book online). But if you’re elsewhere in the world search on Google, Groupon to see if there’s a good deal for your first appointment, ask your friends on Facebook, or on a directory like Lash.Directory. Alternatively, those same sources may help you find a technician who can travel to your home and apply for your lash extensions there.
