Semi permanent eyelash extensions are a great way to frame your eyes and make them appear larger. You will need to visit a salon and have them fitted by an expert, as eyelash extensions are added to your existing lashes. For the first 24 hours after having them fitted you will have to take care not to rub your eyes or directly spray them with water, but after the first day you can carry on as usual, and activities such as swimming will not interfere with the extensions.
Semi permanent eyelash extensions last around 4 to 6 weeks. When your eyelash drops out naturally, the extension will of course fall off too. As we lose our lashes gradually just like with hair, the extensions will slowly become less noticeable, and eventually need to be replaced. You can wear eye make up with eyelash extensions, but you must take care of any mascara you use is water-based rather than oil-based. You should also avoid using oil-based make-up remover is as the oil will loosen the glue used to apply the extensions. When you get your extensions fixed, your beautician will probably give you a list of products that you can use to clean your eyes without running the risk of the extensions coming off too soon.
