The Eyelash Secret


Eyelashes function as a protector from debris. Much like a cat or mouse’s whiskers, lashes are sensitive to touch, thus providing a warning that an object, such as an insect or dust mite, is near the eye, which then closes reflexively.  (Wikipedia)


Eyelashes are the window treatment for beautiful eyes. Women often use false eyelashes made out of human or synthetic hair that are glued to the eyelash area. While thicker lashes are more noticeable, it is important to avoid overstating your look as opposed to a refined natural look.

Individual or Flared Lashes: Individual lashes are typically pre-packed as clusters. These individual hairs are then, one by one, adhered beside your natural eyelashes. One of the pros of going this route is the way the lashes blend in naturally. However, applying these lashes is a tedious chore. Usually when women want to have individual lashes attached, they go to the salon and have a highly skilled esthetician do the treatment for them. These treatments generally cost anywhere from $100 to $250.



Strip Fake Lashes: These types of lashes are the most common. they can be purchased in department and drug stores and packed as a strip. The strip is the part that is glued to the eyelash area. Many people feel that strip falsies are more artificial in appearance compared to individual lashes. However, it is also important to note that strip falsies are extremely affordable and are super easy to apply at home or during a photo session.

Adding lashes should be a safe procedure and within your budget. A consultation with a professional is always advisable as a precaution to enhancing this sensitive area. Please, contact me at for further inquiry.
