Eye­lash ex­ten­sions

Prima (UK) - - Beauty For Grown-ups -

These are glam­orous but can be high main­te­nance and costly. A ther­a­pist glues in­di­vid­ual lashes (usu­ally syn­thetic) on to the base of your own lashes, tak­ing be­tween one and three hours de­pend­ing on the skill of your ther­a­pist. If you look af­ter them, they can last six to eight weeks, but as they fall out, you may want to re­turn for in­fills. My main­te­nance tips are: avoid oily skin­care prod­ucts around eyes a few days be­fore the ap­point­ment; try not to get ex­ten­sions wet but, if you do, give them a quick blow dry; re­move eye make-up gently; and skip mas­cara – you won’t need it any­way. Lash Per­fect has ther­a­pists and sa­lons all over the UK with a choice of ex­ten­sion styles, from
