5 Benefits of Getting Eyelash Extensions

Being that these are one of the latest trends in beauty, it only felt fitting to write a blog on all of the great benefits of eyelash extensions! Although they may seem like quite the commitment, eyelash extensions are well worth it!



Save Time Getting Ready! 


With the holiday season rolling in, we spend a lot of time on the move from dinner parties, celebrations, work events, gift shopping, holiday concerts if you have kids, exams if you’re in school, and the list goes on. Any extra bit of sleep is cherished and much needed, and luckily by opting in to getting eyelash extensions you’ll be saving yourself a couple more minutes of sleep or even down time before getting ready for an event. 

By getting eyelash extensions you’re removing a step or two from your beauty routine if you’re one to curl your lashes before adding layers of mascara. Often times these lashes will also make you look and feel more confident that you may not even feel the need to add any more eye makeup, and thus further cutting down your beauty routine. 


Wake Up Glamorous and Boost Your Confidence


Eyelash extensions are a quick way to wake up feeling flawless. Upon waking up, you don’t have to do anything to your eyes to get a refreshed look. You’ll be up with added volume to your natural lashes and looking like you own a nice full set of healthy long lashes. By waking up feeling fabulous you may not even feel the need to do a full makeup routine as your eyes will be popping and catching all of the attention. You’ll learn to feel better with less makeup and more comfortable in your own skin with just one added feature. 



Live Free from Runny Mascara


Gone will be the days of having to buy waterproof mascara and remembering to wear it to certain events. No more blotting your eyes if you find yourself unexpectedly crying, no more hiding your face from the rain, and no more rubbing your eyes at a sweaty club or festival to keep your mascara from running down.


Outside of the first 48 hours of getting your eyelashes done, they are waterproof and will not be leaking any kind of goop down your face at the slightest inconvenience. So feel free to cry, swim, run or dance in the rain, sweat, or whatever it is that mascara was keeping you from. Live your life to the fullest without a care in the world as you no longer have to worry about runny mascara. 



This is also a great factor to keep in mind if you’re planning on escaping the winter for a sunny vacation. Not only can you swim your heart out, but you can sweat in the heat and not worry about your mascara getting ruined!


Customize Your Lashes To Best Suit You



One of the best things about eyelash extensions that people do not know is that they are customizable! If the long lashes look is not for you, you can always ask for a more natural and fuller look. No matter what kind of eyelash look you like, there is an option out there for you. If you’ve ever thought to yourself that you don’t like the way the look on people, that may just be because of the style that they have chosen. Don’t feel like you have to settle for the thick and long lashes when there are truly many options out there that can complement your natural lashes and simply give them a lift. 


Anti-Aging Properties To Keep Your Skin Wrinkle Free Longer


Although this may not be the first thing that comes to mind when considering eyelash extensions, it’s definitely a great plus. The eyelashes themselves will not contain or give you any anti-aging properties, but they will cause a ripple effect. By wearing eyelash extensions you will be wearing less eye makeup on a regular basis. This means that you will be rubbing your eyes less at the end of the night attempting to remove the product from your eyes before going to bed. 



This also means that you will be applying fewer oils and different kinds of makeup remover products on your eyes. In the case where you regularly wear waterproof makeup, you’ll be rubbing your eyes a whole lot more to get the product out. With this decrease in product on your eyes and rubbing at the end of the day, you’ll be reducing the likeness of getting lines and wrinkles around your eyes as you are leaving that skin alone. 


So at the end of the day, why not get the lashes? Get in some extra sleep, feel glamorous, live your life to the fullest, and most importantly let the skin around your eyes rejuvenate and catch a break.
