When going for your Long Island eyelash extensions, there one decision you will have to make. Do you do for the semi-permanent lashes or the temporary ones?
Temporary lashes are ones you can buy in a store and need to be taken off at the end of the day. You can do it yourself, but they may not necessarily look natural.
Semi-permanent ones are applied by hand one lash at a time by a technician who glues extensions on top of your actual lashes. They can last for six to eight weeks with proper care and remain on your natural lashes until they naturally fall out, as all lashes do.
Below is a guide to semi-permanent and temporary lashes.
Ultimately, you need to decide what to do. Temporary lashes are cheaper and good for the one event, but unless you know what you are doing, they can look cheap. Going to a pro for semi-permanent lashes is the best way to look your best. It will cost you more, but at the same time, you won’t need eye makeup either.
Once you decide to go with the semi-permanent lashes, you need to figure out the best way for your eyes, beginning with the lash material, such as mink, silk, or some other kind of synthetic. (Mink is usually pricier, feels softer, and looks more natural; however, some synthetics, which are highly customizable, can also look and feel natural and end up costing as much as or more than mink.) Then, you’ll have to pick your density (more lashes create a fuller look); curl (the steeper the slope, the more dramatic the effect); and length (a matter of personal preference).
