2017 is the year of eyebrows – nothing to say about that. Yet, we’ve been thinking this over, and we realized that poor eyelashes got neglected recently. Eyelashes are the best friends of your face when it comes to beauty; they frame your eyes, protect them, and give them more definition. So this is our appeal and request: take care of your lashes! To help you out, we’ll tell you all you need to know about them, or rather about the 3 treatments for the coolest lashes – no mascara required.

dyeing

Dyes are a light treatment, which is perfect for those of us who have fair eyelashes and don’t want to overdo it with mascara but still feel their lashes need some extra definition. It’s quick to do (it takes only a few minutes) and it lasts several weeks. Just before a vacation is perfect timing, so you can avoid using waterproof mascaras and getting frustrated when your cleanser doesn’t get it all off. If you’re looking for voluminous lashes, this is not for you: it won’t make any difference. But your lashes will seem longer, because their ends tend to lack definition otherwise – even for brunettes and those with darker hair.

perming

A life-saver for those who have very straight eyelashes and have to spend a lot of time in the company of their curler every single day. It’s exactly the same as getting your hair set, but it’s specifically for your eyes and it lasts approximately 3 to 4 weeks. It won’t solve problems concerning the thickness or weakness of your lashes, but you will notice your eyes will look bigger and brighter. You can also keep on using mascara on permed lashes as you please – for better volume!

extensions

This is for beauty junkies only. It takes a higher level of commitment – it costs more and requires more care over time. Every one of your lashes will receive each an additional fiber to make them longer and thicker. It looks great for the first 2 to 3 weeks, then progressively worse as the extensions fall one by one as your natural lashes grow. It’s better not to use mascara on extensions, because they would get damaged, especially when you remove your makeup. Extra tip: if you get extensions, try to sleep on your back. If you sleep on your side or tummy, lashes will fall at a faster rate, forcing you to replace them more often!
