Key Tips For Women Using Eyelash Extensions

It's pretty easy to enhance the look of eyelashes, thanks to eyelash extensions. A lot of women swear by them, and if you want to give them a try, it helps to be cognizant of a couple of protocols when these beauty products are implemented into your regiment. 

Decide Between DIY and Professional Assistance

There will be a choice between putting eyelash extensions on yourself or having a professional beauty technician do it. Before you even think about what extension options you're going with, make a decision that you feel is best.

If you want to go a more cost-effective route, then there are actual DIY eyelash extensions you can purchase. Just be sure you follow the included instructions and be ready to adjust application techniques if necessary. If you want to make sure the results are optimized, then working with a beauty technician to have extensions put on your eyelashes may be better. Just be ready for their fee. 

Keep Eyes Closed During Application 

Whatever type of eyelash extensions you end up purchasing or going with in a beauty salon, you need to remember to keep your eyes closed throughout this entire process. This sounds simple, but some women forget and then aren't able to get eyelash extensions that stay on.

You must keep your eyes closed throughout this process so that the glue used on your eyelashes has time to dry properly. Keeping your eyes closed also will make the application much more user-friendly, even if you're attempting to put these beauty products on yourself.

Be Careful About Using Too Much

You may think that the more eyelash extensions that are used on your face, the better for getting dramatic results. That actually isn't a smart move because it could may certain sections of your eyelashes look too thick.

For the best results, you need to apply just enough extensions to every area of your eyelashes. There are guides you can watch online to see how many extensions to place. Or if you don't want to potentially guess, you can talk to a beauty technician to see what eyelash extension quantity is best.

Eyelash extensions are a product readily available to women that are looking to enhance this aspect of their face. Whether you apply them yourself or professional assistance is involved, make sure you get exactly what you want and verify placement is correct so that you look your best.

costume and makeup play tips and ideas

Some of the most fun I have with my kids is when we play dress up. We have a costume weekend around our house at least once each month. During that weekend, we pull out a chest full of costumes and a big box of makeup that we use to decorate our faces. We go through a lot of makeup and have had to get very creative in how to clean makeup stains off of our skin and the furniture around the house. Our family blog contains many ideas for costume play and even several tips that can help you with cleanup after play is done.
