There are many beauty trends that come and go, but there is one that stands the test of time: long luxurious lashes. Currently, sky-high eyelashes are at the forefront of beauty trends, so of course there are many different options to try. Here are some of the most popular ways to achieve long lashes and their pros and cons.
- Lengthening Mascara & False Eyelashes
There are many mascaras on the market that work to lengthen eyelashes and make them appear fuller. This temporary solution is simple and quick, with the downside of when it is washed off, you say ‘goodbye’ to your lengthy lashes. False lashes are another temporary option that come in a variety of different materials. However, false lashes can have the tendency to look, well, false. They also call for some experience and a steady hand when applying. None the less, lengthening mascaras and false lashes are easily accessible and will certainly do in a pinch.
- Eyelash Extensions
One of the latest trends to achieve longer-lasting lashes is extensions. Applied in a salon by a specialist, extensions are attached using a bonding glue that can last up to 6 weeks. They can cost between $100-$120 for a new set and require fills that cost between $45-$80. A new set of extensions takes 90 minutes to apply and fills can take up to an hour. Extensions certainly require an investment of time and money; however, your look is complete with or without mascara.
