In order to achieve a more attractive and magical look, many women resort to artificial eyelashes. The disadvantage is that they can damage the real eyelashes and cause them to fall out faster. But there is now a new, harmless variant of the artificial one Silk eyelashes, that the beauticians offer. So if you wish to have wonderfully curved eyelashes as soon as you get up and without mascara, these types of artificial eyelashes are just right for you. Not only do they lengthen your own eyelashes, they also give them even more volume.
Silk eyelashes- these artificial eyelashes will damage your own?
These are silk eyelashes that do not interfere with the natural growth of your eyelashes. These are individually glued to your own eyelashes with hypoallergenic glue, last 30 to 90 days and do not damage your own eyelashes in any way. They also do not contain any other substances that could damage your eyelashes or the hair roots. Since real eyelashes have a lifespan of 30 to 60 days, it is normal for them to fall out from time to time. So the fall of the artificial eyelashes depends on the lifespan of your own eyelashes.
Silk eyelashes – which age group uses them most often?
More and more women are taking a liking to this type of artificial silk eyelashes. The most common are customers between the ages of 20 and 35. But teenagers and women between 45 and 50 years of age are also increasingly common. The reason for this is that the effect is immediately noticeable. It increases self-confidence and immediately puts a smile on every customer’s face.
Attaching silk eyelashes and proper care
In order for the artificial silk eyelashes to last as long as possible, it is important that they are applied correctly and that you care for them properly. It usually takes about an hour to attach. You should also visit your beautician about once a month, i.e. every three to five weeks, for a check-up and renewal. Ideally, this should always happen after 20 days. By and large, that depends on each person individually, i.e. on the lifespan of the eyelashes, as well as on the extent to which the care was taken. This silk eyelash renewal session doesn’t take quite as long. There you are usually ready after 45 minutes. The reason for the frequent return visits to the beautician is that the natural life span of the eyelashes is not long and accordingly the artificial silk eyelashes fall off together with the real ones. You should also choose a suitable length so that there are no noticeable gaps.
For best effect, avoid contact with water for the first 24 hours
As for the care of artificial silk eyelashes, you should avoid contact of the eyelashes with water for the first 24 hours. This is so that the glue can dry well. While it is not said that the eyelashes might fall off otherwise. But it’s best to stick to this tip. After this period, however, you can do everything you would do with your own eyelashes. So you can wash your face as usual and diving yourself is no problem.
Which forms are there and which are preferred?
Since straight eyelashes close the view, so to speak, curved eyelashes made of silk are preferred, which are also chosen a little longer. Otherwise there are several variants. Different lengths are offered and the thickness of the individual hair or eyelashes made of silk vary. So that the look looks as natural as possible, it is important that they are not chosen too long. When choosing, factors such as the workplace should also be considered. To be on the safe side, every customer should therefore receive good advice from the beautician beforehand. After all, you want silk eyelashes to suit you in terms of shape and length.
You can combine the silk eyelashes with make-up such as mascara, kohl and eye shadow?
It is usually unnecessary to apply mascara, as the artificial silk eyelashes themselves provide this effect. However, if you do use it, you should know how to properly remove it in the end. A cotton pad as usual must not be used for this. Instead, you should wash your eyes under running water until you have removed the mascara. You can also use an eye make-up remover in the form of a cleansing foam. However, if you should use another product, it must not contain alcohol or be oily.
You can also apply kohl and eyeshadow without any problems and as usual, despite the silk eyelashes. But removing is also important. You can use a cotton pad for this, but you must not rub the eyelashes with it. Only clean the area above the eyelashes, i.e. the lid. The reason for this is that fibers tend to get stuck on the eyelashes and if you try to remove them, you may tear the eyelashes out or turn them over.
Should you take a longer break between the procedures after a certain period of time?
There is no need to take a break. Finally, as I said, these silk eyelashes do not damage the natural eyelashes in any way and do not lead to eyelash loss. On the contrary, you should always visit your beautician at regular intervals after the first application.
What to do if you want to abort the procedure?
If you no longer want to renew your silk eyelashes, you have two options to choose from. You can use a special removal product and the best way to do this is to visit the beautician who originally applied your eyelashes. But you can also remove silk eyelashes yourself at home. All you have to do is use mineral water and a cotton pad that you dip into the water. Use it to gently rub your lashes. This is best done in front of the mirror. If the cotton pad is used up, take a new one and so on.
