Eyelash Extensions: Here’s All You Need to Know

eyelash extensions

If you aren’t blessed in the eyelash department, don’t fret. With natural looking eyelash extensions being offered by just about every salon around Singapore, you’ll easily be able to get your peepers popping in no time at all!

Why get eyelash extensions?

Imagine your day minus all those precious seconds you spend applying layers of mascara. Imagine all those glamorous events where you never have to spend precious minutes fiddling with the latest false lashes and gooey glue. Now there’s no need for deep breathing and patient thinking. Eyelash extensions are a fuss-free alternative to mascara and simple falsies and give you that flawless red-carpet flutter.

How are eyelash extensions applied?

One by one! Picture the intricate details that go into that. Professionals use a semi-permanent glue specialised for this treatment, which doesn’t damage the natural lashes or cause irritation. It’s painless, too! All you have to do is lay back, relax and enjoy the treatment.

How long do eyelash extensions last?

These little beauties can last 4–6 weeks, depending on how well you look after them. If you’re willing to head back to the salon in between appointments, your professional can reapply adhesive, which makes them last longer. Talk about getting bang for your buck!

Will the process harm my natural eyelashes?

As with anything, there’s a mix of horror stories out there, but we can 100% guarantee your natural lashes will still be just as beautiful when your extensions are removed. Just be careful not to rub the eye area. Your extensions just need a little TLC!

How much do eyelash extensions cost?

Extensions start from as low as $30, but it might be an idea to shop around before deciding on your ideal application. The cost also depends on how many lashes you want to apply, along with the quality. Speak to your professional to find out how to achieve your desired look. If you want a super full finish, it may cost more.

Which eyelash extensions are the best for me?

No two designs are the same. There are three types of false lash extensions to choose from including silk, synthetic and mink. Of course, it’s vital you work with your beauty technician to decide on the ideal lash length for you. Talk about what look you want to achieve, practicality and long-lasting wear.

When should I get eyelash extensions removed?

Semi-permanent eyelash extensions should always be removed by a professional, so seek the right one. Don’t risk removing them yourself. You’ll cause more damage than good. Trust us!
