Professional versus DIY lashes

Thursday, April 30, 2020

There is no denying the beauty of full and long lashes. Like so many beauty treatments, you can choose between the professional and DIY approach. Before you make any decisions, here are a few important factors to consider.


The main reason why so many women choose to try DIY lashes is because they are cheap yet marketed in such a way that we are made to believe that they are of the same quality. Cheap does not always mean low quality but, when it comes to something like your lashes, do you really want to risk it?

How long they last

If you buy lashes in a store, you most likely will only wear them for a night before removing and discarding them. Professionally applied lashes can last for weeks or even months provided you do not have a tendency to rub your eyes regularly. When your natural lashes shed, your lash extensions will shed too.

How they are applied

This is one of the main reasons why women prefer professional lashes. Instead of struggling to stick them in place in front of a mirror, they can relax while a professional works their magic. It can be extremely frustrating trying to get lash extensions in place on your own face. When a professional does it, you can be sure that the results will be that much more impressive.


Finally, never underestimate the importance of quality when it comes to your lashes. Your eyes are the most important feature on your face and this means that your lashes are a worthwhile investment. Store-bought lashes might not be made from the best materials and they may not be waterproof either. Yet another reason to opt for the professional approach.

Remember, lash extensions do not need to be extravagant. Talk to a professional about their options and discuss which one will work best for your lifestyle. Make sure that the lashes you choose will suit your personal and professional image.
