Pros and cons of eyelash extensions

If you're considering eyelash extensions, it's essential to gather information to determine if this procedure is the right fit for you.

Eyelash extensions have gained immense popularity, thanks to advancing technology that now offers various techniques for achieving a natural lash look.

However, like any beauty procedure, it comes with its ups and downs. It's crucial to educate yourself beforehand to ensure that this procedure aligns with your preferences and needs.


  • Save time. One of the greatest advantages of getting eyelash extensions, according to many women who already use them, is the time you can save in the morning. Why? Because when you wake up, you don't need to put on mascara or concealer to have stunning eyes.
  • Look fabulous 24/7. They give you a glamorous look at all times, even if you don't wear any makeup. So, goodbye to waking up two or three hours before school just to do your makeup!
  • Natural look if done correctly. If you invest money in a specialist and high-quality lashes, like mink extensions, you will look beautifully natural every day! Make sure to choose lashes that match the shape of your eyes and the natural length of your lashes. A little tip: an experienced technician will apply one extension on each natural lash, while an amateur may apply an extension on two or three lashes. Be careful in your choice!


• Cost. The average cost is around $80 and can go up to $450, depending on the type of adhesive, the technician's experience, and the lash material. Additionally, as mentioned earlier, it is important to come back every two or three weeks for maintenance or removal.

• Lengthy process. The process of applying eyelash extensions can take up to 3 hours. Imagine spending 3 hours with your eyes closed and, worse, without being able to use your inseparable phone! But some girls take advantage of this time to meditate or let their minds wander about all the things in their short lives.

• Glue may cause allergic reactions. Be very careful and pay attention to any tearing or irritation you may feel while the technicianapplies the extensions, as this could mean you are having an allergic reaction to the adhesive. What a horror! You don't want to have red, swollen, or painful eyes.

Additional tips: 

  • Be careful with themakeup remover you use, as some ingredients like oil can loosen the adhesive. It is recommended to use a special cleanser specifically for eyelash extensions.
  • Brush them constantly with a mini brush, a pointed sponge, and some even say to use a mini hairdryer for their lashes.
