Our eyes are some very important assets. They provide us with sight, with which we use to analyze and make most of the decisions that we do. They can be many different shades, hues and colors and are the reason why we’re able to perceive visual beauty or make judgments about what we feel is ugly. People make decisions about people based solely on their eyes sometimes, because they feel that they can know everything that they need to based off of them alone. Half of the makeup and cosmetics industry is focused on the eyes with products like mascara, eye shadow and liner, and most women can’t leave the house without at least applying a little mascara, even when they’re running late. You’ve probably been driving, on your way to work on one or more occasions and looked over at the car next to you and seen a woman applying mascara, eye shadow and other makeup using her car’s sun visor mirror while she’s simultaneously trying to drive safely. Women spend a whole lot of time, effort and money on their outward appearances and their eyes are more often than not, the main focal point. Because of this fact, not only has daily, temporary ways to accentuate the eyes been invented, but more permanent forms of drawing attention to one’s eyes have emerged as well. You can have eyeliner literally tattooed on, so you don’t have to worry about it ever again and also, you can have eyelash extensions installed by a certified and licensed esthetician at a beauty salon or medical spa. There are temporary extensions that are common as well that involve some topical adhesive and fake eye lashes, they are popular but can damage your lashes and pull them out while removing them from your eyelids. Ultimately, they can be quite counter-productive if you’re trying to increase the appearance of longer, more dense and voluptuous lashes.
Eyelash extension treatments can take several hours, depending on what you’ve got to work with and how densely you want them applied. They can last more than several weeks if you take care of them. Rubbing or scratching your eyes and over-exposing them to water when you wash your face and when you shower can lessen the longevity of the extensions. They work a lot like hair extensions but eyelashes are so much more delicate than the hair on your head that they have to be taken extremely good care of in order get the full benefit out of them. Experiencing emotions that manifest crying episodes aren’t good for them either, so try not to be sad or involve yourself with people who make you feel crying, because turning on the water works can have you back at the salon faster than you anticipated. Getting eyelash extensions applied is a very time-intensive process as well, and one that you should prepare to spend several hours receiving. This might sound like a lot of time for something like this and it is, but time is money and the price of beauty is all relative. If you’ve never heard of this kind of extension treatment and you don’t know where to go to have it administered, the kind of places that provide microdermabrasion and chemical peel treatments are where you ought to call to see if they can help.
A more permanent kind of solution for someone who wants fuller, more lush eyelashes is called Latisse. Latisse lashes are the only prescription treatment for inadequate eyelash growth that exists today. It comes in the form of a liquid solution and it is applied using a specialized applicator to the skin around the eyelashes. This can increase the length, number and diameter of eyelashes and was approved by the FDA for cosmetic purposes in 2008. Originally, in its early forms, it was used to decrease the progression of glaucoma by basically increasing the flow of aqueous fluids from the eye, but more often than not now, it’s used for cosmetic reasons.
No woman really ever believes that their eyelashes are long or full enough, so there’s all kinds of reasons to try to come up with solutions to this problem. Sticky adhesive that is used to put on or peel off fake lashes can get old really quick, and like I said earlier, they can cause you to ultimately lose eyelashes, which would make them appear less dense and lighter in color than ever before as a result. So, whatever way it is that you feel like going, if you want to accentuate your eyes then there are a variety of ways to do it, and I’d recommend looking into a medical spa or beauty salon of some kind to get your questions answered by a qualified professional.
