All About The Eyelashes

All About The Eyelashes
October 26, 2015

If you weren’t blessed with long eyelashes, there are plenty of cosmetic options to give you the luscious lashes you’ve been dreaming of since you were a teenager. Whether you want more length or volume, there are plenty of permanent makeup options for Scarlett O’Hara-worthy lashes.

Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash extensions enhance the eyelashes you already have, giving them length and volume. Your esthetician will carefully apply your lashes fiber by fiber using a special glue that will keep your new lashes secure without damaging the natural hairs. Applying a full set of lashes takes about two hours, and you’ll have to have new fibers reapplied every three to four weeks. If you have naturally long lashes but you just want to give them an extra bit of flair, you can go with a half set of lashes for the same effect.

Permanent Liner at the Lash Base

Permanent eyeliner doesn’t just make your eyes pop; it also gives your eyelashes a dramatic enhancement. When eyeliner is applied to the lash line, it makes the eyelashes appear to be darker, fuller, and thicker. If you don’t have the time to get eyelash extensions done once a month, then a permanent liner is a great alternative. To enhance the eyelashes, the eyeliner is only tattooed at the base of the lashes between the rows. There is no line past the last row of lashes, so many people opt for this when they don’t want to look like they’re wearing permanent makeup.


If you’ve battled with thin or very short eyelashes, then Latisse could be the answer you’ve been looking for. Latisse is a specially formulated medication applied to the lashes to encourage hair growth. The liquid is applied every day to the lashes and patients typically start to see results in their lash growth within sixteen weeks or so. Their lashes will become longer, thicker, and more defined in their growth.

You don’t have to stick with expensive mascaras and eyelash curlers to get dramatic lashes. Whether you opt for permanent makeup or choose to go with monthly eyelash extensions, you aren’t stuck with the eyelashes you were born with!
