Most people agree that the first thing they notice on another person is their eyes. Thus the desire for long lucious eyelashes. You want to beautifully frame the windows to your soul. We’re moving closer to the hot humid summer weather and this is not the forecast that is mascara friendly. There is an alternative to applying several coats of mascara that can run, clump, and leave you in need to periodically reapply.
Eyelash extensions are the newest rave in the beauty world. Extensions are bonded to each individual lash and the results last for the entire life of the lash (6-8 weeks). This is also a great option for women who prefer not wearing makeup but still want to achieve a natural polished look everyday.

Just when you think the multi-talented Beyonce Knowles has done it all she goes and outdoes herself again. This time she’s giving back to the community with beauty. Her latest venture is the Beyonce Cosmetology Center.
While doing research for her role as Etta James in the movie “Cadillac Records”, Beyonce was introduced to Phoenix House, a substance abuse treatment center. She was compelled to offer assistance after speaking with recovering addicts.
She and her mother, Tina Knowles, developed the idea of a cosmetology center. This program provides job training skills to support themselves in the real world.

You should probably have your I-Phone handy the next time you go shopping at your local beauty supply store. This is so you can do your research as you shop. It is important to buy products that are manufactured in USA inspected facilities. Products made outside of the United States may or may not be produced with the same quality control as those produced in the United States. This is especially important when it comes to the cosmetics you purchase, including eyelash extension adhesive. Many products make their way to USA shelves deceptively marketed as American made.

Eyelash Extensions Care
You were told that your eyelash extensions will last six to eight weeks. But is this really true? After investing in a full set of lashes, you need some pertinent information on how to extend the life of your extensions. Read this to understand the real deal about the longevity of eyelash extensions.
You may have to ditch some of your tried and trusted beauty routine. Most cosmetic products contain solvents that break down lash adhesives. This includes not only products used on the face, but also shampoo and conditioner. In order to maintain your lashes at home you must switch to beauty products that do not contain glycols and carbonates. Some examples of glycols and carbonates found in mascara and eye makeup removers are propylene glycol, polyethylene glycol (PEG), and propylene carbonate. To simplify aftercare procedures many eyelash extensionists provide aftercare kits to clients for an additional fee.
You can maintain an active lifestyle with your eyelash extensions that can include swimming, sweating, and crying. However, it is still important to be gentle when handling them. When washing the eye area use minimal pressure, letting your specially formulated cleanser do the work. Avoid towel drying your lashes as this could cause you to accidently rip them out. Also never tug, twist, or pick at your lashes. Disposable mascara spoolies can be used to keep lashes separated.
There is nothing more frustrating than spending top dollar for a product that does not do what it promised. Do not go home from the salon and let your eyelash extensions get washed down the drain by using your old products. Your beautiful new lashes can really last for six to eight weeks.

If you thought eyelash extensions were a risk free solution to achieving long thick lashes, think again. Eyelash extensions are not a do it yourself project. You need to make sure you have a professional applying them, using the right kind of products. Follow these guidelines to ensure that you have a beautiful experience with your beautiful eyelash extensions.
Applying eyelash extensions is not a twenty minute project that can be taken on in your bathroom with the kit you bought online or at the neighborhood beauty supply store. In an effort to avoid the seemingly high price tag many people attempt this procedure as if they’re simply dying their hair. This is very dangerous and is not worth the price you may pay by trying to cut costs.
Eyelash extensions are tediously bonded to each individual lash. The procedure typically takes up to two hours. Sharp tweezers are utilized to apply each lash. You do not want your eyes open with sharp objects in such close proximity. You surely cannot do this on yourself with your eyes closed. Also, the eyes must remain closed the entire time of the procedure so that the strong fumes from the adhesive do not irritate and damage the eyes.
In order to ensure your eyelash extensions are applied in the safest way, have them done by a professional. There are people specifically trained and certified in applying eyelash extensions. They also help in the maintenance and upkeep to ensure the longevity of the extensions.
Keeping the eyes closed is not the only precaution to take against the damaging fumes from the adhesive. Be sure that your eyelash extension technician is utilizing a formaldehyde-free, pharmaceutical grade lash adhesive. Formaldehyde, which is found in most eyelash glue, may cause skin irritations and allergies.
It is vital to take the upmost care when having procedures done that involve the delicate eye area. The benefit of having beautiful lashes upon waking every morning makes this procedure priceless. It is something every woman should treat themselves to.
