Have you ever wondered if now is the perfect time for you to have your eyelash extensions done? Many people hesitate to take the first steps toward getting those luscious lashes they’ve always dreamed about while they wait for the perfect time. They wonder whether winter or summer will give them the best experience as they adjust to taking care of their long mink eyelashes.
The truth is that any time is a great time to have your eyelash extensions done. Winter and summer are both excellent options, but you might find that winter is slightly easier to accommodate new eyelashes than summer. Why is that, you might ask?
Well, you really should avoid waterproof mascara when you have eyelash extensions. It requires more oil-based makeup removers to come off of your eyelashes. This can cause the adhesive to come loose before the estimated time. It can also clump up on fake eyelashes, making it even more difficult to remove without ripping out your extensions at the same time.
Many women prefer to wear waterproof mascara in the summertime because it allows them to flaunt sexy dark lashes while they recline at the pool. Spending an hour at the seashore can be difficult if you don’t have waterproof mascara to keep your lashes from running down your cheeks. If you hesitate to leave the house without your full makeup on, you might not want lash extensions during the summertime.
If this trivial detail doesn’t mean much to you, lash extensions can really be worn year-round. With these extensions on, you could even find that you don’t need to wear mascara to make your eyes a standout feature.
Keep in mind that you will have to stay completely dry for almost one full day after your application. This isn’t the kind of beauty service you can have done and then hop on a plane to go to your vacation destination. The glue has to have time to dry all on its own which means you can’t get your eyes wet at all. You shouldn’t sweat, cry, swim, or even wash your face for one full day if possible.
Not sweating in the summertime could be a real struggle for you. The salt and the water can disrupt the drying process, causing your expensive eyelashes to fall out prematurely. Unless you plan to head straight into the air conditioning, you may have a difficult time keeping yourself cool in the middle of the summer. The best idea is to get them done early in the morning to give yourself a little more travel time before you start to sweat.
Eyelash extensions can be great at any time of the year. Beginners might want to consider waiting for a cooler month so they can better adjust to their new care and maintenance routines.
