Classic Eyelash Extensions
Eyelash Extensions are semi permanent eyelashes that are applied to almost all of your natural eyelashes to create the most natural looking long eyelashes possible. Because generally everyone has some damaged lashes or very small new lashes coming through or eyelashes that are soon to fall out it is impossible to apply a false lash to every single natural lash. You can get various types of eyelashes applied. The most common and desired are silk, mink or synthetic eyelashes. It all depends on your preference. At Bayside Beauty we currently do synthetic and silk. We do not support animal cruelty here.
Synthetic eyelash extensions: These are made from a polished, acrylic material and are the firmest of all. In appearance, they are a little glossier than the mink or synthetic, and when applied quite thickly, more dramatic. While they come in a wide variety of thicknesses and curls, and can be applied to look very natural, these are most popular with clients wanting a more dramatic look. They hold their curl extremely well due to their firmness.
Silk eyelash extensions: These are the mid-weight type of lash extensions, and are finer and more flexible than the synthetic type. Because they are softer and more porous, they tend to hold on slightly longer than synthetic lashes. They can be made to look very natural or very glamorous. Because they are lighter weight, they are often a much better option for your lashes if your own ones are weak or fine. They definitely last longer than synthetic lashes too. Like synthetic lashes, silk come in a variety of curls and lengths, though are a better option for a more natural look, as the curl is not generally as uniform as synthetic lashes.
Faux-mink lash extensions: Faux-mink lashes are man-made fibres, designed to imitate real mink fur. They are very fine, soft and silky, just like real fur. However, they have been improved, in that if you wet them, they won’t lose their curl. When wet, real mink fur lashes become straight and wispy and you often need to use a curler to curl them back up. They are also shinier in texture than the silk lashes, which gives the lashes a glossy look. They are long lasting if they are cared for correctly. Because they are so light, they don’t tend to drop or twist, even after many weeks of wear.
The application of your eyelash extensions can take anywhere between 1 to 2 hours. The more eyelashes you have to work with the longer it will take to apply a full set. Although this may seem like a long process, rest assured that the time will fly by! You lay down with your eyes closed on a beauty bed the entirety of the application while you relax listening to soft tunes and with the delicious candle burning in the background you will be wanting to take a short nap!. The atmosphere is peaceful and I will always ensure you are comfortable and in no discomfort.
Why should you get Eyelash Extensions
When you have short eyelashes and or you have very thin and very few natural lashes then it is a no brainer that you MUST try eyelash extensions at least once. I'm not going to lie, it's not for everyone. Some people have sensitive eyes or find them irritating but if applied correctly this should not be an issue.
If you are not happy with the natural look of you eyelashes then trailing a full set to see if it's something that you could add to your beauty regime is a great option. It could be that you are over constantly gluing false lashes to your eyelids or saturating your lashes with mascara to obtain your desired look. With eyelash extensions you do not need to wear mascara at all. Your confidence along with your eyelashes will be magnified! You will be constantly getting compliments and you will genuinely feel more beautiful in yourself.
