Eyelash extensions are complicated. Once you get started, you’ll never want to go back to your normal lash length. With that attachment, though, comes a slew of complications that social media makes all too apparent for us with numerous horror stories about eye infections, lashes falling off, and beyond.
It’s redundant to point out that the negative aspects associated with eyelash extensions are the result of improper practices. When done well by reputable professionals, semi-permanent faux lashes can completely transform your appearance and be a very comfortable experience on the whole. If you have sensitive eyes, there are salons that use fume-free adhesives or provide patch test services before the actual procedure to ensure that you’ll not have a bad reaction.
Eyelash extensions, with proper care, can last for about a month. For those who want to give this a try, here are the best places around Singapore to get them.
