A beginners guide to choosing lash extensions

After the invention of red lipstick in the beauty space, the next best thing was the invention of lash extensions.Who doesn’t like the sass, drama, elegance and class lash extensions bestow on you? At that cocktail party, wearing  a black skater dress above knee length, a pair of silver sandal heel shoe, a silver studded necklace and earring topped off with red lipstick, soft feathery lashes, perfectly wing lined eyes and a glass of Montoya cabernet to sip on at hand. Yeah! That’s exactly what we are going to help you achieve. (Effortless boss chic slay)

You don’t have to be a makeup artist to understand the various types of lashes and how to use them. It gets confusing when you see a variety of lashes and you don’t know which to go for. Depending on the look you want to achieve, here’s a simple guide to help in the purchase decision process.

Before buying  lash extensions, here are a few things to consider:

  • Eye shape
  • Eye size
  • Eyelids
  • Eye color
  • Characteristics of natural lashes- the length, the volume etc
  • Allergies
  • Personal preference

I would share more on the eye characteristics in subsequent blog posts, however, for the purpose of this post let’s get into the business of the day.
Generally, we have

Mink lashes: fluffy,pretty & almost weightless beauties. Very comfortable to have on for a long time. Good for the everyday wearer and also if you are a conservative person.

Fox lashes: if you like to throw in a bit of sass and drama, this is for you. They are heavier and more feathery than mink lashes.

Sable lashes: this is the thinnest and softest of the types of lashes. You want to subtly project class but don’t want too much attention, you can have these sable lashes.

Lashes also vary by length (of about 9mm-15mm) and curls. ( “J” & “C” ).
Choose what makes you happy, comfortable and confident. You don’t want to be blinking every 2 seconds at your dinner party.
This is not an exhaustive list but a guide for beginners.
Also, learn to take breaks in between fixing extensions as they can damage your natural lashes. And remember to stay lashed up because eyes without lashes are like cakes without frosting. Stay lashed up :* xoxo
