Lash extensions are often considered a must-have in any makeup routine. They make your eyes look and feel bigger, give the illusion of longer lashes, and can even be used as an alternative to mascara. Unfortunately, not all lash extension kits are made equal.
There are certain factors that you should consider when choosing the Best lash extensions kit. These include durability, ease of use, and price. However, one of the most important considerations is how they feel when worn. Above all else, you should be able to wear the extensions comfortably.
What to Look for in a Lash Extension Kit
When choosing what kit is right for you, several factors should be taken into consideration. These include:
Durability – How long your lash strands will last and the length of time that they may stay in place. The more durable and natural-looking your lashes start as the longer they look after you remove them.
Design – How many different pieces of false hair are included in the kit. The more individual lash strands that come with your kit, the more possibilities you have when creating different designs and looks. Some kits even include eyeliner and mascara.
Ease of Use – How easily the individual lash strands can be applied, and how long it takes to finish your look. The more effort you have to put into applying false hair, the less appealing it becomes. And, the longer your lashes last, the more time you will spend on your look.
Price – How much your kit costs is an essential factor to consider. If you are looking for a well-priced kit, your best options include 1) the eyelash extensions that come with lash curler or eyelash curler sets and 2) lash synthetic extensions. Both of these options typically have more lash extensions for your money.
Do Lash Extensions Hurt?
Lash extensions are certainly not pain-free, but they also don’t hurt as much as you might think. It can take a few days to get used to wearing false lashes, and some people even experience minor discomfort the first few times that they wear them.
However, once your hair comes in and you’re used to the extensions, they won’t seem as painful. Your eyelashes will grow in but will not become lighter, so you can wear them even if you have dark hair.
How Do You Apply Lash Extensions?
Applying the false lashes is easier than it looks. However, it isn’t the easiest thing to do at first. The first few times you try to apply your individual lash strands, you may notice that they fall out quickly.
This is fairly common for anyone who is trying this makeup technique for the first time. When you first start applying false eyelashes, you will notice that the individual hair strands fall out quickly. Thankfully, this phenomenon passes as your eyes grow accustomed to the extensions.
As you continue to practice, you can expect your lashes to last longer and to dry faster. Many makeup artists recommend using a lash curler before you start applying the false lashes. The curler will help hold the individual lash strands in place and allow you to see the individual lashes better so that you know where to apply them.
