My Xtreme Eyelash Extensions
Last week I had the pleasure of stopping by My Skin Care Center in Fair Lawn, NJ for eyelash extensions. Having long, full lashes makes a world of a difference. Lashes open up your eyes and make your eye makeup stand out even more. For that very reason, mascara is one of the beauty products I won't a day without wearing. I love the look of full lashes so much that I use three types of mascaras at once to achieve the perfect look. Sure, you can also use false lashes, but they can be such a pain to apply -- especially on a daily basis.
My experience at My Skin Care was amazing. The lashes took about an hour to apply, but it can take longer depending on the look you choose. The lashes I got are Xtreme Lashes -- the best quality you can get. The Xtreme lashes are synthetic and applied individually over each lash. You can choose a style that fits you best (shorter or longer) and even how full you want the set to be. If you're unsure of what you should get, the stylist will assist on the decision. To start you lay down and just relax while your eyelash extensions are applied. When the procedure was done I was blown away by the look of my new lashes. It looked so incredibly natural and couldn't believe the precision of each lash placement. The lashes have a natural curve so there's no need for curling or even applying mascara.
Here are some things you should know about getting eyelash extensions:
- The lashes are made to last for about two months or more, but it really depends on your natural lash growth.
- The lashes will begin to fall out as your lashes grow our naturally.
- Try not to get any water near your lashes for the first 48 hours. This will ensure they last longer.
- Use products that are oil free like oil-free makeup wipes and eye creams. My stylist recommended using a gel-based eye cream.
My lashes feel so natural and comfortable that I forget I have the extensions. I'm so glad I got the opportunity to try them. For more information on getting eyelash extensions visit www.myeyelashextensionsnj.com. They're happy to answer your questions and make you look fabulous.
