How many of us have lusted after movie star eyelashes? We all want full, long, thick eyelashes that accentuate our eyes and draw people in. If you are like most women, you have tried some of the common solutions out there-false eyelashes, eyelash extenders, loading on the mascara, or eyelash curling.Sioia
Any one of these solutions can make your eyes look great, but they come at a price to the health of your lashes, and in some cases, at a price to your pocketbook.
False eyelashes are affordable
You can buy them at any beauty supply store or at most drug stores. It takes a little experience and trial and error to put false eyelashes on correctly. You should make sure you carefully remove the lashes and glue and then condition your eyelashes. Continual use of false eyelashes can cause your lashes to become brittle and fall out.
Eyelash extenders can also make your lashes look longer
These involve adhering wisps of hair to your existing eyelashes. It is relatively expensive costing between $300 and $500 for a full set. The sessions can take between one and a half to two hours to apply, so be patient. Since your lashes naturally fall out, the extensions will also fall out and you will have to have them renewed. A “touch up” can cost about $200. As with false eyelashes, extenders can also be unhealthy for your eyelashes.
If you really want to make your eyelashes to grow naturally
Use these alternatives sparingly and for special occasions. Over time, they will take their toll on your eyelashes. Even mascara has harmful effects if you don’t give your lashes a break from its use and if you don’t remove it at night. You can condition your eyelashes with vitamin E or Vaseline. There is a non-petroleum based Vaseline if you prefer not to use petroleum products around your eyes. Apply these at night and comb them through with an eyelash brush.
If you want to make your eyelashes grow, try an eyelash enhancement serum. You apply these just like your eyeliner and within 2-4 weeks, you will have thicker, fuller, and darker eyelashes. You can even use these to thicken your eyebrows.
