The latest makeup looks are all about the eyes. Luscious, long lashes and perfectly sculpted brows are the basis for gorgeous eyes that stand out from the crowd and suit any age group. Unfortunately, getting the look can be a long and intricate process that all too often ends up with a tiny error that means you need to start the application again from scratch.
If you adore a well-made-up eye but you're getting tired of the time and effort it takes to apply your eye makeup, then rest assured. These two non-invasive and semi-permanent cosmetic procedures will dramatically decrease your makeup application time and have you looking glam and gorgeous twenty-four hours a day.
1. Eyelash extensions
Eyelash extensions are very similar to regular false lashes and will increase the length and volume of your lashes with no mascara required. The main difference is that extensions are designed to last for several weeks, while false lashes are only designed to last for a single occasion.
Eyelash extensions are meticulously applied strand by strand using a specially designed adhesive. This makes them appear more natural and also allows you to get a custom look that suits your eye shape and is as subtle or elaborate as you like.
2. Eyebrow feathering
There's no doubt that eyebrows are an important and striking feature of your face. The right brows can frame your face, lift your eye area and give you the look that's being rocked by models and celebrities around the world. Getting the desired brow look with cosmetics is achievable, but it will take time and skill to apply the various products needed.
Eyebrow feathering is a cosmetic procedure that will give you full, sculpted and perfectly tinted eyebrows that won't need to be reapplied each day. Feathering involves delicate temporary tattoos which replicate the look of fine eyebrow hairs. You may be a little bit shocked at how dark your brows appear on the day of the procedure, but the colour will fade to a more natural look within a few days.
As with any cosmetic procedure, make sure that you choose a technician who is trained and experienced in these techniques when making your appointment. This will ensure that the procedure is performed in a safe and hygienic manner and that you won't end up stuck with lashes or brows that you hate for many weeks to come.
