Artificial eyelashes, also known as false eyelashes, are a beauty product used to enhance the length, thickness and fullness of natural eyelashes. They are either applied to the roots of the natural lashes or glued to the lash line. Artificial lashes come in many different types and styles, from natural-looking lashes to colourful and eye-catching versions for special occasions. They can be used by professional make-up artists as well as private individuals.
Artificial eyelashes are usually made from synthetic materials such as plastic or from natural materials such as human hair. Synthetic eyelashes are usually cheaper and easier to maintain, but they do not look as natural as human hair eyelashes. Human hair lashes are usually more expensive, but they look very natural and are easier to curl and style. There are also different forms of artificial lashes, from single lashes that are applied one at a time to bands of full lashes that are glued on in one piece.
In terms of application, there are eyelash extensions and temporary artificial eyelashes. Eyelash extensions are applied to the roots of natural lashes by professional make-up artists and can last for several weeks. Temporary artificial lashes, on the other hand, are glued to the lash line and are easy to apply yourself and usually last for a day.
There are also some things to keep in mind when caring for and removing the artificial lashes so as not to damage the natural lashes. It is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions when removing the lashes and cleaning the area around the eyes, and to seek professional help if there are any Problems.
