What is it about a celebrity that begs our attention? Not surprisingly, it’s usually the eyes responsible for turning heads. Gorgeous eyes are the most striking feature to stand out. It’s no wonder why most celebrities enhance their eyelashes to stand apart from the crowd. How do they do it? One way is to use semi permanent eyelashes. Here are 6 tips to own the celeb look.
1. Have them done right.
There’s nothing glamorous about gluing your eye shut. It’s best to have them put on at a reputable salon – at least for your first time. Also, Its’ important to find out the strength of the glue they use. Quality glue won’t come off, but you have to maintain your lashes. Which brings us to the next tip.
2. Maintain them regularly.
Semi permanent eyelashes need to be maintained to keep up the look. What that means is you’ll have to make an appointment to replace any eyelashes that have fallen out. Each individual eyelash (usually synthetic) is carefully glued to your natural lash. It will last from 4 to 6 weeks on average.
However, since eyelashes fall out every day, you’ll have to get a touch up every 2 to 3 weeks.
3. Be good to them.
Be gentle with your lashes. Avoid using abrasive eye-makeup removers. Since most semi permanent eyelashes are synthetic, there are some mascaras to avoid that could damage the material. If you use a heater lash curler, be absolutely sure it’s warm enough to touch – not scorching. This could melt your new set of lashes.
4. Make them shine.
This is how you can make your long, luscious lashes stand out even more. With your finger or a q-tip apply vitamin E oil from the base of your lashes out in upward strokes. This not only makes your lashes shine but also thickens your natural lashes over time.
5. Don’t overdo it.
Sometimes even applying mascara is overkill. You won’t need it during the day. Although, mascara will dramatically bring out your eyes on a club or date night. It really depends on the occasion. Use your best judgment and you’ll turn heads wherever you go.
6. Grow longer eyelashes.
Eyelash growth products work excellent with semi permanent eyelashes. This will make your natural eyelashes longer and thicker.
