Of course, you'll want to apply 26% eyelash dye before applying the extensions. The eyelash lift creates a natural curl in the eyelashes so that the eyelash extensions fit the lashes better (this is especially good for people with straight lashes so that they don't protrude below the extensions). Starr suggests doing an eyelash lift before putting on extensions and waiting at least two days between them. After 24 hours, Starr recommends rinsing newly lifted lashes to ensure they are firm, which will give the eyelash technician a fresh base to work with when they put the extensions back on.
This is also the safest method for your lashes and ensures that you don't overprocess them. Placing extensions on top of an eyelash lift leaves very little room for the glue to adhere, making the extension not last as long. When customers come with their eyelashes raised, we always notice that the extensions may not last as long as they used to. Sometimes, if the lift is not good, the extensions are seen with gaps.
You can wear eyelash extensions 2 days after an eyelash lift treatment. According to eyelash expert Andrea Starr, the two go well together, especially for anyone with very straight lashes who regularly uses an eyelash curler. They require less maintenance than eyelash extensions, although this chemical treatment requires a break between sessions to avoid damage. However, because they are applied to real lashes, they usually fall out within a month due to the natural eyelash cycle.
There are many volumizing masks on the market that will give you gorgeous, luscious lashes, but if you're looking for longer-lasting results, you might consider getting eyelash extensions or an eyelash lift. After 13 weeks, it's safe to undergo an eyelash lift and it won't have any adverse effect on eyelash growth. They're also more affordable compared to eyelash extensions and they also last longer, so you don't have to worry about putting on fillers every few weeks. The great thing about doing an eyelash lift is that you can still apply the mascara if you want to pay more attention to your eyes.
This innovative treatment comes from France and consists of filling eyelashes with proteins, vitamins and pigments while increasing the length, curve and thickness of the eyelashes. For those who don't know, an eyelash tightening and tinting treatment is basically what you'd expect: it lifts your lashes and gives them a darker shade to make them look fuller. Generally speaking, eyelash extension treatments are more aggressive to the eyes because they use an incredibly strong glue that adheres to natural lashes. For one reason or another, longer lashes make your eyes look wider and more sexually attractive, whatever your gender.
In short, I would recommend it if you have longer lashes, as the effect of eyelash tightening and tinting may not be as evident on shorter lashes. Plus, it's a hassle-free, natural-looking option that doesn't cause your lashes to fall out as often as compared to eyelash extensions, which is ideal if you're prone to rubbing your eyes regularly or if your eyelashes keep falling out.
