Eyelash extensions are designed to look even and natural. The eyelash extension industry has been very versatile since its inception, however, the classic set of an eyelash extension in a natural eyelash will provide the most natural look. Personally, I would always choose synthetic silk or mink over synthetic ones, to create a natural look. Softer and more flexible, less stiff and plastic-looking, they generally also last longer.
However, more may be needed to create the dramatic look of synthetic eyelashes, something that some people love. The synthetic mink eyelashes we use are even thinner than the silk ones, creating an even more natural and soft look. You can achieve a natural look with eyelash extensions if you apply them correctly. Follow my guide to getting natural-looking eyelashes with extensions.
The result was great (I woke up with bangs full of eyelashes and went to work without wearing any makeup), but after a week I started to wake up with my pillowcase covered with eyelashes, both extensions and my own natural eyelashes.

Classic eyelashes apply an extension to a natural eyelash, while volume eyelashes are multiple extensions that are applied to a natural eyelash to create a more spongy and voluminous look. I have been working as a licensed cosmetologist for more than five years and have heard a lot of misconceptions about eyelash extensions. Although you can go crazy with extensions in terms of style, creating a natural look is very simple.
Since you apply an individual extension to an individual eyelash, that extension will fall off on its own when the natural eyelash comes off. If you're not exacerbating this shedding process by rubbing your eyes, applying mascara, or compromising glue with oily eye products, eyelash extensions should last up to a month before you need a “refill” appointment. One of the scariest things about eyelash extensions is that the process is not regulated in some states, such as Alabama, Maryland, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho and Wisconsin.

When extensions first came to the mainstream market, they seemed like a relatively simple way to achieve soft, wavy lashes without the hassle of false or mascara. Usually, the eyelash artist will use various lengths and intensities of curling to create a wide-open eye effect, placing the longest eyelashes at the outer corners of the eyes and the shortest eyelashes at the inner corners of the eyes and the shortest eyelashes at the inner corners of the eyes.
