I am struggling to pick which procedure I should do this month. I've always had thin eyelashes and need a boost every now and then to get my lashes to look full and thicker.
For those not aware about these procedures; Eyelash extensions involve gluing or bonding individual fake lashes to your natural lashes to make them look physically fuller and longer. On the other hand, a lash lift involves giving your natural eyelashes a perm procedure(kinda like one you would do on your hair) to make them appear longer and fuller.
So, the lash lifts give an enhanced look to your natural lashes while the eyelash extensions can be used for a rather dramatic effect.
Pro: They give the most dramatic look to your eyes and are perfect for going out makeup. You never have to wear mascara.
Con: If not properly applied by a professional, they would have to be taken out and in doing so may harm your natural lashes.
Pro: They look absolutely natural as compared to the extensions. Because they are your lashes. Can last up to 12 weeks.
Con: If your lashes are too short then you can't get lash lift as they won't come out long enough.
So before choosing it is important to know what type of look you want to attain. If you want a dramatic look, go for the extensions . If you want natural look then lash lift would be more suitable. Furthermore, if you have short lashes, then you can only do lash extensions.
I think I will be going with lash extensions this month.
