False eyelashes are tiny clusters of synthetic or human hairs glued together in order to make an eyelash. They can be applied in small sections to make the natural eyelashes fuller for a more dramatic effect. However, though they can enhance the look of the whole eyes and thicken the eyelashes, according to experts, they can also trigger allergic reactions or infections if used improperly.
The Positive and Negative Sides of Fake Eyelashes
These fake eyelashes are great for ladies with thin or short eyelashes and when you trim them to a length matching your natural eyelashes, you will achieve naturally looking thicker and longer eyelashes.
If you want a bolder and more dramatic look for a New Year’s Eve party or a birthday, fake eyelashes are the way to go. A full false lash will make a bold lash line which will make the lashes look drastically longer, whether you are on stage or at a party with dimmed lights. Instead of applying the glue to the eyelid, apply it onto the false eyelash directly and then press it onto the lash line.
Every woman should know that false eyelashes are not a long-term solution for thin and long lashes. So, if you go to bed with them or wear them for a longer period of time, you can contribute to bacteria growth under the eyelash glue and on the false eyelash and this can trigger an eye infection. There are cases when the eyelashes are not adequately removed and the eyelid is not cleaned with makeup remover and this can also cause an infection. It is pivotal to note that the glue and the false eyelashes should never be shared because a lot of eye infections are contagious.
Like any other makeup that contains chemicals, there is always a risk of some allergic reaction; so, you should always test the fake eyelashes and the glue on a smaller area of the body 24 hours prior to use. A red mark or a rash is a sign of an allergy and this means that you need to avoid using them.
