Permanent eyelash extensions are a huge hit nowadays among celebrities and many makeup artists. Women love them because they are very sturdy and can last for 3-4 weeks when done the right way. The application process is done at a salon by a certified lash expert by two needles and a lash adhesive. The application can take up to 2 hours of your time, but the outcome is worth the wait. The best part about lash extensions is that they can be customized per your eye shape and your wanted outcome. Another thing that is great is the fact that you will only need to use a lash comb to separate them through. No reason for heavy mascaras or lash curlers, ever.

You can find them easily online and a bit harder in stores.
