Everyone loves for their eyelashes to look long, curled, and voluminous. A trend that has stuck around (literally) for a while now, is the eyelash extension trend. It’s great because you don’t have to worry about applying false lashes or putting on mascara, but there are some dangers you should know about the extensions before you try them out.

Though many trends, especially when it comes to beauty, tend to come and go, eyelash extensions have stuck around for a little longer and are here to stay. The trend keeps on growing and growing, because everyone dreads running mascara and the process of putting on falsies. There are many different types of lashes and materials used to choose from. But you may ask, are they safe?

When choosing an eyelash specialist, you want to make sure they always know what they are doing because when it comes to eyes, anything can happen. There have been cornea and eyelid infections… and even swollen after eyes!

You also want to make sure you’re not allergic to anything in the lash adhesive or else you could get a serious reaction. They can also cause itchiness and irritation afterwards, so it’s important to make sure what kind of lashes are right for you!

It’s also possible your natural lashes can be damaged, but there is a very small chance. You have to decide if lashes are worth your money and time because they are a high maintenance accessory to keep up with. Even though lash extensions aren’t for everyone, it all depends on your personal preference. Though beauty is pain, it’s always better to be safe than sorry!
