If you have small and straight lashes that just don’t curve or wear the mascara well, there is a chance that you might be looking for an alternative easier than the traditional false eyelashes. There are a few options in the market, but the most popular ones are eyelash extensions and magnetic lashes. They have different proposals, and this is the chance to find which one is best for you!
Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent lashes that are hand-glued on top of the natural lashes, in different proportions according to the desired effect, and can last for six to eight weeks until they naturally fall out like lashes usually do. They are safe and without any bad consequences as long as the chosen professional is a reliable person and uses the proper materials. After getting them done, it is necessary to have some extra care with the eye area and use the right products, but it can be worth it as there will be no time wasted applying or removing mascara.
On the other hand, magnetic lashes are fake eyelashes that adhere to the eyes using either magnetic lash strips sandwiched together or magnetic eyeliner painted across the lid. When properly used, they are considered safe as they will not ruin the natural lashes, especially if using magnetic eyeliner lashes. It is not recommended to use every day, as it might cause some traction to the natural lashes and result in falling out, but they are great and effortless to use on special occasions.
In conclusion, those methods have different objectives, and the best one can be defined according to your eyelash needs, but both are great methods to enhance your look.
