INTERNATIONAL MAKEUP & HAIR DESIGN
One of the standards of femininity, and the secret weapon of every femme fatale, is long, luscious eyelashes. From the pages of Vogue to the images of cartoon character Jessica Rabbit, long lashes are considered a universal characteristic of feminine beauty. Although every woman desires long, thick, glamorous eyelashes, not all of us have been blessed with Jessica Rabbits's glamorous look. To enhance the appearance of eyelashes, there a dizzying array of products and procedures to choose from. Long and full lashes are eye-catching and it appears as if this ongoing trend won't change anytime soon.
Eyelashes enhancements are so much different than they were back in the 20th century when famous Hollywood actresses like Bette Davis, Joan Crawford and Jean Harlow captivated audiences on the big screen. Back then, false eyelashes were constructed of fringe and literally lasted only a handful of hours.
Today, women have options to achieve beautiful eyelashes and don't have to depend on mascara to get the look they want.
One choice is eyelash extensions. Find an expert who is certified in this art to create a personalized look. In many cases, eyelash extensions may replace the use of mascara. These artists offer not only a natural and full eyelash contour appearance, but these lashes look like the real deal.
Others have chosen the route of an eyelash fortifier. Some may also refer to it as a serum, as well. This type of formula may incorporate peptides for thicker and longer eyelashes. Other powerhouse ingredients may also include one or more of the following:
These serums and fortifiers condition the cycle that your lashes go through. On average, people lose a few eyelashes every day. If they don't take good care of their lashes, this number can increase dramatically. So please be mindful of those lashes, because it may take up to eight weeks to have them grow back.
These products help keep lashes intact for longer. Users of fortifier formulas say that they have seen thicker eyelashes in as early as four weeks and noticed a significant improvement in the strength of their lashes.
Another popular choice is eyelash growth treatments. A unique ingredient, approved by the FDA contains a bimatropost ophthalmic solution. This formula has often been described as the "miracle" lash grower which reveals darker and fuller lashes in about 16 weeks.
In addition to the above options, here are some other helpful at-home remedies to improve eyelash health:
Using an eyelash curler should be done before mascara is applied to avoid lashes from breaking and splitting. Also, try not to pull on the curler to avoid yanked out lashes.
Having long, beautiful eyelashes is more than just a dream – with new, great products on the market it's become an actual reality!
