So the new trend nowadays are definitely eyelashes; long beautiful, stop traffic eyelashes. They’re such a bold beautiful natural statement on the face that instantly sets people apart from one another. People that are blessed with naturally long beautiful batting lashes are lets face it, simply stunning! The problem with that is the jealously factor definitely comes into play with those who weren’t as lucky to be blessed with such a stunning facial statement. Here’s the good news; its 2011, there are definitely concepts, ideas, treatments and procedures that can quickly help you get your eyelashes to your desired length. And here’s even better news; everyone is doing it! Its like hair extensions everyone has them.
I just read an article in the NY Post about eyelash innovations and I must say I was stunned about how many methods of treatment and procedures there are. From eyelash extensions, procedures that help them grow, and just plain mascara. There are even spas and salons devoted to just eyelash treatment and extensions. Here are a few methods to help you decide which method best suits you.
1. LashDip- a semi permanent mascara that promises to thicken your lashes for up to six weeks! The procedure takes one hour and costs around $250. It promises to be safe and painless. It also eliminates part of your facial makeup process while getting ready.
2. Eyelash Extensions- I’m sure everyone has heard of this. The procedure can be done now at almost any salon or spa and can cost anywhere up to $400. The procedure is painful, simple, fast and easy. The extensions are not permanent and do require maintenance more so than the LashDip procedure.
3. Mascara- An essential in everyone’s makeup bag or kit. It is the finishing touch on the lashes that sets them off for a great overall look. There are now new mascaras to add volume to the lashes, add height, thickness, and now even help them grow. A mascara made by Rimmel London called Rimmel Lash Accelerator is a mascara that promises to grow eyelashes in 30 days. My younger sister uses this mascara and I’ve seen the results; it really works!
