Eyelash extensions are the latest beauty trend. Unlike traditional false eyelashes that are applied on a strip, synthetic eyelash extensions are glued to individual natural lashes with tweezers. Women who get eyelash extensions no longer have to use mascara. The lashes are fairly durable, too. You can work out, swim or go to the beach without worrying about ruining your lashes or having your mascara run. Extensions are individual lash-like fibers attached millimeters above your eyelashes on the actual lash itself. Experts say they’re becoming more popular because, in most cultures, long lashes are a sign of femininity. Lashes also open up the eyes, and make women look and feel.
