Eyelash extensions are a game changer. You wake up looking as if you’re wearing mascara or false eyelashes, only it’s more natural-looking. It’s also smudge-proof, waterproof, and not heavy at all. Despite the advantages, some people are still hesitant to try them out. So, here are 5 Q&A’s regarding lash extensions to help you decide:

How do I choose the right length and fullness?
The length and fullness you choose depends on the length of your lashes naturally. If you have naturally long lashes, Christian suggests going for fullness rather than length: “If you apply a long lash, they’ll look great for about a week or so, and then they start to get really heavy and then they spin and point down.” If you have medium length lashes, he advises going for a bit of length and fullness at the same time. And if you fall into the sparse lash category, he recommends sticking with something that has medium fullness because “as they grow you’ll get more wear out of them.” Source: StyleCaster

Does it hurt to have it done?
It is generally not a painful procedure, but some people have negative reactions to materials involved. If you experience any burning, pain or discomfort, let the professional know immediately. Your technician should be trained in dealing with this potential issue.

Can you go blind?
No. Your technician should be trained properly to apply the adhesive and lashes in a way that is completely harmless. Your eyes are closed the entire time of the procedure. No matter how bad an allergic reaction may get, you will never go blind. The worst case scenario is that you need to go to the eye doctor to get specific eye drops to treat an allergic reaction.

Can you still wear all your favorite eye makeup?
All regular makeup can be used with lash extensions. Mascara can be worn, but is definitely not recommended. Wearing mascara will make lashes clumpy and cause lashes to fall off prematurely

When we’re ready to go back to our natural lashes, what’s the best way to get them off?
Eyelash extensions should really be removed by a professional with professional remover. But, if that’s not an option, you should just let them shed on their own. Source: TheBeautyBean
