Individual Eyelashes
Individual eyelashes are actually groups of three synthetic lashes attached to each other. They can be applied to the eyelid or directly to the eyelash with a temporary adhesive designed to last up to two weeks. Because the clusters are in groups of three they can be too heavy for ones natural lash to support. It can also be harmful to apply the cluster to more than one lash because natural lashes grow at different speeds.  A natural lash that grows faster can pull a natural lash that grows slower. If this occurs repeatedly there could be permanent damage (eyelid balding). However the application time is less than 30 minutes, and it is very budget friendly.

Individual eyelash kit contains:
– Short, medium and long clusters
-Temporary adhesive
– Bond remover

Eyelash Extensions
Unlike individual eyelashes, eyelash extensions are applied one lash extension to one natural eyelash with a permanent adhesive. The lash extension should be applied directly to the natural eyelash only. As the natural eyelash shed (60 to 90 days) the eyelash extension will be removed also preventing any damage to the root if the eyelash extension is properly applied. Eyelash Extensions provides an undetectable, weightless  enhancement to natural eyelashes, and should be touched up between 3 to 6 weeks .
