How to Find the Eyelash Extensions That Suit You

Eyelash extensions are a popular beauty trend that can enhance your natural lashes and give you a glamorous look. But how do you know which eyelash extensions are right for you? There are many factors to consider, such as your eye shape, the look you want, the materials, the salon, and the maintenance. In this blog post, we will share some important tips to help you find the eyelash extensions that suit you best.

Tip 1: Know Your Eye Shape

Your eye shape plays an important role in choosing the right eyelash extensions. Different techniques and styles can accentuate the natural beauty of your eyes. For example, if you have almond-shaped eyes, you can opt for longer and curved eyelash extensions to enhance the effect. For round eyes, eyelash extensions with a cat eye effect can help to visually lengthen the eyes. It is important that the eyelash extensions you choose complement and harmonize with the natural shape of your eyes.

Tip 2: Choose the Look You Want

Another consideration when choosing eyelash extensions is the look you want. Do you like it more natural and subtle, or do you want a dramatic and eye-catching look? There are two main types of lash applications: classic and volume. Classic eyelash extensions are ideal for a natural look. A single lash extension is applied to a natural lash for a subtle effect. However, if you prefer a more dramatic look, you could opt for volumizing eyelash extensions. Several eyelash extensions are applied to one natural eyelash to achieve a fuller and more eye-catching look.

Tip 3: Consider the Materials

Do you know there are different lash materials that give a different feel of how your extensions may turn out? There are man-made silk, mink, sable, human hair but the most common ones are silk and mink. The main difference between silk and mink is the level of shine on the lashes. Silk lashes have high shine and give the wearer a dark intense effect while mink are matte and provide an incredibly lightweight feel, ideal for creating a natural and fluffy look. Mink comes in real mink animals or synthetically made. For those who want to avoid using animal fur, those who are vegan or vegetarian, simply opt-in for cruelty-free lashes/ vegan lashes. They are synthetic lashes but extremely lightweight and safe as well.

Tip 4: Find a Reputable Salon

Do a little research on the available eyelash extensions salons before making your appointment. It is recommended to search for the salon’s social media presences (such as Instagram and Facebook), or read Google reviews to find out what other’s experiences have been. You should also check the salon’s hygiene standards, the training and certification of the lash artists, and the quality of the products they use. A reputable salon will have a good reputation, a portfolio of their work, and a consultation service to help you choose the best eyelash extensions for you.

Tip 5: Know the Maintenance

Before deciding on any particular type of eyelash extensions, you should also consider the care and maintenance involved. Some types require more attention and regular top-up appointments every two to three weeks, while others require less maintenance and last longer. Consider how much time and effort you are willing to put into maintaining your eyelash extensions to make the right choice. You should also follow the aftercare instructions given by your lash artist, such as avoiding water, oil, and mascara on your lashes, and brushing them gently with a spoolie.


Here are some frequently asked questions about eyelash extensions:

  • Q: Are eyelash extensions safe?
  • A: Eyelash extensions are generally safe if they are applied by a trained and certified lash artist, using high-quality products and following proper hygiene standards. However, some people may experience allergic reactions, infections, or lash damage due to improper application, poor quality products, or lack of aftercare. To avoid these risks, you should always choose a reputable salon, communicate with your lash artist, and follow the aftercare instructions.
  • Q: How long do eyelash extensions last?
  • A: Eyelash extensions last as long as your natural lash cycle, which is typically 6 to 8 weeks. However, this may vary depending on the type of eyelash extensions, the quality of the application, and your lifestyle and activities. To keep your eyelash extensions looking fresh and full, you should get them refilled every 2 to 4 weeks.
  • Q: Can I wear makeup with eyelash extensions?
  • A: You can wear makeup with eyelash extensions, but you should avoid using oil-based products, waterproof mascara, or eyeliner on your lash line, as they can damage your eyelash extensions and cause them to fall out prematurely. You should also use gentle makeup remover and avoid rubbing or pulling on your lashes.
  • Q: How do I remove eyelash extensions?
  • A: The best way to remove eyelash extensions is to go back to your lash artist and have them professionally removed. This will ensure that your natural lashes are not damaged or pulled out. You should never try to remove eyelash extensions yourself, as you may end up hurting your eyes or causing permanent lash loss.


Eyelash extensions are a great way to enhance your natural lashes and give you a glamorous look. However, they are not one-size-fits-all. You should consider your eye shape, the look you want, the materials, the salon, and the maintenance when choosing the eyelash extensions that suit you best.
