10 Benefits of Eyelash Extensions
Do you wish you had fuller, longer eyelashes that frame your eyes and make them pop? Most women do! But mascara can be messy to apply and finding the perfect one is tough. Plus, applying strip eyelashes is tricky and time-consuming. This is where eyelash extensions shine.
Eyelash extensions are a simple solution that give thick, full, fluttery lashes that look unbelievable. In this post, you’ll learn the benefits of getting professional eyelash extensions and why they just might be the perfect treatment for you.
What Are Eyelash Extensions?
Lash extensions are made from synthetic fibers. They’re attached directly to the base of your natural lashes using medical-grade adhesive. Only a tiny amount of adhesive is needed to secure the lashes so it doesn’t irritate the skin or eye.
Lash extensions come in a range of lengths from 6mm to 18mm. They’ll also have different curls and widths depending on the thickness and fluffiness you’re looking for.
Since lash extensions are attached directly to the natural lashes, they will shed with the natural hair growth cycle. This usually happens every six to eight weeks so getting refills every three weeks is a good way to keep the lashes looking full.
How Are They Applied?
Having eyelash extensions applied is a delicate process. Your technician will first talk to you about what eyelashes you want including the length and thickness. Longer lashes give a more dramatic effect whereas shorter lashes offer a more natural daytime look.
The application process is quite long, so get comfy! Each lash is applied individually with a tweezer-like tool which will fix around 160 eyelashes. Each lash is glued to the base of your natural lash one teeny lash at a time.
The Benefits of Eyelash Extensions
Whether you’re a busy mom with no time for a long beauty regime or a professional businesswoman who wants to look her best, eyelash extensions offer a huge range of benefits:
Just like your favorite killer heels can make you feel like a superstar, eyelash extensions give you confidence. This simple but incredibly effective beauty treatment makes your eyes look bigger and your eyelashes look longer, giving a youthful look that turns heads.
2. You Won’t Need Mascara
Eyelash extensions make your lashes look fuller and thicker, meaning you won’t need mascara. This cuts out so much time to your beauty routine, saving you time and effort each morning or before a night out.
In fact, our technicians advise avoiding mascara if possible because they can be difficult to remove without damaging the extensions. However, if you must add mascara, use the EyEnvy Intense Mascara and always use an oil-free eye makeup remover. Oil-based removers may loosen the bonds of the extensions.
You can also get serums and cleansers that are specifically formulated for lash extensions. These products are much gentler than oil-based makeup removers and will help avoid premature shedding.
If you’ve invested in lash extensions, you’ll want to keep them looking good for as long as possible!
3. Safe For Your Natural Lashes
Unlike heavy strip false lashes that weigh down your natural lashes, eyelash extensions won’t damage your eyelashes. They are lightweight and individually applied to the base of your own individual eyelash, giving a volumizing effect without any discomfort or damage.
4. Save Time and Effort
Getting ready in the morning can be a long process. Anything we can do to simplify the process and save time is a massive help. Since eyelash extensions mean you can skip applying mascara, your beauty regime is much quicker. Plus, you don’t have to worry about finding mascara clumps on your eyelids throughout the day. Your eyelashes will look in place and beautiful no matter how busy you get.
5. Feel Weightless
If you’ve tried strip lash extensions, you probably already know that they can feel bulky and itchy. Plus, after some time of wear, they can move and come loose. Individual eyelash extensions feel natural and weightless. In fact, you’ll forget you have them on. Plus, you won’t have to worry about reapplying them throughout the day and you can forget carrying around glue to top up.
6. They’re Water-Resistant
Our eyelash extensions are water-resistant but you should wait 24 hours after application before showering so they won’t come off in the shower. This also makes them the perfect solution for going on holiday where you’ll be spending time in the pool and cooling off in the ocean. With eyelash extensions, you won’t have to worry about mascara streaking down your face.
7. They Lift Your Lashes
If you’ve got short, thin or flat lashes, eyelash extensions are the perfect solution. They lift the natural lashes, adding volume and length in the process. They also help your lashes curl to give a fluttery effect. All while protecting the health of your natural lashes.
8. The Treatment is Relaxing and Comfortable
Some beauty treatments seem like something out of a horror movie. But rest assured, having eyelash extensions applied is safe, relaxing and comfortable. At Femme Bar, your professional technician will expertly apply your lash extensions using tested and proven products that won’t irritate your eyes.

Had a Bad Experience with Extensions in the Past?

What’s more, because our technicians are experts at what they do, your eyelashes will last. You won’t find them falling out in a matter of days and you won’t find any damage to your natural lashes.

How Often Should You Get Eyelash Fills?
Eyelash extensions never need to be taken off and completely redone. Instead, you’ll need to get refills done every two to three weeks to keep them looking full and thick. Having refills done is takes more skill from your technician because they need to know where to apply new lashes to keep them looking natural and not clumped together.
Our technicians are pros at reapplying lash extensions to make sure they continue to look full and thick. Their trained eye will ensure your eyelashes are even and symmetrical, so they look just as good as your original set.
We advise having refills every two to three weeks depending on how much your eyelashes have shed. To keep them looking their best between treatments, conditioning serums can be used to help reduce shedding.
