Why Consider Lash Extensions Over Strips?
When deciding how to amp up your eyelash game it can be tough to decide what route to take between quick self-glue strips in your bathroom and professional extensions in a studio. At the end of the day it’s all about knowing what YOUR eyes need based on your lifestyle, habits, and desired look. That being said, let’s look at the facts when it comes to the benefits of investing in the art of eyelash extensions to truly enhance your eyes rather than self-applying strips.
Extensions can be pricey compared to strips, yes! But what exactly are you paying for?
- You’re paying for 2-3 weeks (between fills) of event-ready lashes from the moment you wake up until the moment you close your eyes. If the event you’re attending is prom, then look around early and buy prom dresses online.
- You’re paying for a safe technique that tailors individual styles and lengths to enhance each individual lash
- You’re paying for water-proof styles perfect for any activity from a day on the lake to a romcom cry-fest.
Strips are beneficial in the sense that you can do them in the privacy of your own home on your own time; and they tend to be cheaper than extensions.
- The glue for strip lashes attaches to both the lash and the skin; and is meant to only last a handful of hours on the eyelid.
- Extension glue attaches to only the lash itself and is meant to last for weeks, which makes it less ideal for those who pick and pry at their lashes often throughout the day.
Although both have their costs and benefits the largest benefit of all is the ability to save large chunks of time per day on makeup application when extensions are used. How long do you spend per day on your makeup routine? Imagine cutting out the entire portion of that time allocated for eye makeup due to the already perfect lashes in place with your extensions. You’re running late and only have time to do foundation? No problem, your eyes already pop with the extensions. You have a big event later and are dreading doing your own eye makeup? No worries, you won’t need to stress about eyeliner and mascara with extensions.
Whether you’re looking for the “get up and go” convenience of lash extensions or the flexibility of strips, proper application can take your eyes to the next level and give you the confident flirty look you desire!
