False Eyelash Extensions

Attractive Woman's Eye with False Eyelash Extensions
False Eyelashes or Eyelash Extensions?

Do you know the difference between false eyelashes and eyelash extensions and how to determine which is best for you?

False eyelashes and eyelash extensions are the latest beauty obsession worn by celebrities such as Maria Shriver, Beyonce, Star Jones, Ivana Trump and Khloe Kardashian. And now that this trend has become more popular and affordable, every woman seems to be craving the look of longer, fuller eyelashes.

Eyelashes add volume, length, and makes the eye appear larger and more defined. Unfortunately not everyone was born with them. But thankfully the beauty industry has created a solution, and if applied correctly, no one will ever guess they’re not yours. False eyelashes and eyelash extensions can be worn for special occasions or everyday for a natural look and feel. Or, if you wanted something a little easier to use, you could use an eyelash serum like Xlash.

False eyelashes (a strip of eyelashes) can be applied for a temporary, quick and glamorous look. Sephora’s “Flirt-It Lash Duo, softly enhances your natural eyelashes, while adding volume and length. This product retails for about $8. and is great because it includes several lengths of lashes to choose from, as opposed to one full strip. MAC Cosmetics also makes several popular false eyelashes, which come in a variety of shapes, lengths and densities, and retails for about $20.

Flare eyelashes are clusters, consisting of several strands of hair. They are available in short, medium and long lengths and can be applied in specific areas for a detailed look. Ardell’s Duralash Naturals retails for about $3. in most beauty supply stores and Shu Uemura’s Individual Flare Eyelashes($16.) can be found in Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman Stores. Flare eyelashes can be put on by an experienced person, but is recommended to be applied by a professional, as it can be a tedious process.

Eyelash extensions is a cosmetic procedure that consists of bonding natural and/or synthetic fibers to each one of your natural eyelashes with a special adhesive. This is a semi-permanent procedure that lasts for the life of your eyelash (eyelashes normally shed about every 90 days) and starts at about $250. This procedure is painless, and the results are natural, longer, fuller eyelashes you can swim and shower with. Clients are required to return for fill-in services, which can costs between $50.-$250. This procedure should be done by a certified technician only, as the use of utensils and material can be harmful if not applied properly. Extreme Lashes and Lavish Lashes are popular companies who train professionals to perform the service.

When deciding which procedure is best for you, one should consider your lifestyle and the look you are trying to create. If you are going out for a special occasion and do not intend to wear the eyelashes past that day, strip eyelashes are perfect. If you want your eyelashes to lasts longer (perhaps for a weekend getaway) and don’t want to fuss with make-up too much, cluster eyelashes will do the job. And for those who want a more permanent look, without altering your lifestyle, eyelash extensions are the way to go.

  5. @Patty Precise and false eyelashes…feel free to follow me on twitter, facebook and fashion industry network (under Saleemah Staten) for updates on hair, make-up and beauty tips.

    @Eyelash Extensions…your advice is greatly appreciated and right on point. God bless you in your endeavors.

    @Laura…if you complete an Eyelash Extension class (Extreme Eyelash or Novalash)…you can become certified and ready to apply extensions….which is different from individual lashes (detailed in paragraph #5 above).

    Thanks to you all for your comments and/or questions.

  7. Great post!

    This is what I tell people when they ask me fake eyelashes or eyelash extensions: Price.

    $200 – 300 for 4 – 6 weeks of real extensions is worth it. You can’t get better than real extensions. However, there are some good cheap methods to fake extensions.

    Such as Talika Lipocils makes an Eyelash Extender that I believe to be the best on the market. It runs less than $50, and gives you that glamorous look.
