A little experiment to test out how long our eyelash extensions could last. From Day 1 until about 8 weeks, there was still some strands of left over lashes from the eyelash extensions.
Photo when it was first done…
Eyelash Extensions has become a necessity make up routine for many ladies. So much time saved, not having to curl the lashes and put on layers and layers of mascara everyday. Do you know that curling your lashes by clumping them harms your lashes? Even having to remove the mascara by makeup remover tugs and weaken your eyelashes. Having eyelash extension done saved so much hassle with not having to use lots of make up remover to remove the mascara stains on the lashes.
Feel free to touch your eyelash extensions when washing your face. No problem with that, as Beauty Recipe uses ultra fine human eyelashes that is so soft and does not trap water when you wash your face. There is a common problem with ladies always complaining about heavy lash extensions and not being able to open their eyes during shower and when they wash their face because the eyelash extensions traps water thus preventing them from opening their eyes with the synthetic lashes. Human Eyelash at Beauty Recipe will have no such problem as they are not plastic like the synthetic lashes which will trap water.
After 14 days – 2 weeks, 70% of the eyelash extensions are still in tact.
Anyway the key point is that the lesser you tug on your lashes, the longer your eyelash extension is going to last. Of course other factors like the original thickness, the length, texture…etc of the lash that you have also plays a small factor.
About 50% left of the extension lashes at 21 days.
At Day 27, there are about 30% of the lashes left. A semi side front view photo for the Day 27 was taken because the lashes are more obvious when viewing it from the front and sides when the eyes are open.
From the photo above, it is probably hard to tell which are the extensions and which are the real lashes. That’s how natural Beauty Recipe eyelash extension are with the human eye lashes. Beauty Recipe also use mink and silk eyelashes but human hair is recommended as it is so soft and light weight, you can hardly feel any thing at all.
Does Beauty Recipe’s Eyelash Extensions cause real lashes to drop?
The biggest myth is that lash extensions ruin your own lashes. They do not, if applied correctly and properly, they are safe and do not ruin your natural lashes. At Beauty Recipe, your lashes are applied properly to each individual lash with a Korean extension technique, so your natural ones won’t fall out.
Each of your natural lashes are individually separated and carefully bonded, one eyelash extension to one natural lash 1mm away from your eyelid to ensure your natural lashes growth is not affected and the glue does not come into contact with your skin. This technique creates a seamless look and feel as if these eyelash extensions were your own
The above photo shows the amount of the real eyelashes after 2 years of eyelash extension at Beauty Recipe is the same as 2 years ago.
This shows how important using high quality medical grade glue, quality eyelashes and techniques are when it comes to protecting your real lashes with eyelash extensions.
