A number of thoughts come to mind when you make a wish on a fallen eyelash, but if you're reading this you're likely wishing those darn lashes wouldn't fall out in the first place. When it comes to your eye lashes, there's no such thing as too much. DIY falsies are tricky, waterproof mascara is fine, but for truly melt-proof, smudge-proof, don't-even-need-liner lashes, eyelash extensions are worth serious consideration.
Extensions usually last up to two or three weeks, they'll stay put throughout the entire weekend of wedding festivities and they're perfect for a beach honeymoon where you'll spend most of the time without makeup. "The best part is that the textures are so natural, that you simply look like yourself, but better," So go ahead and bat a thousand (lashes, that is).
In threading, a thin (cotton or polyester) thread is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short rows of hair.
There are a few different techniques for threading. These include the hand method, mouth method and neck. Each technique has advantages and disadvantages; however, the mouth holding method is the fastest and most precise.
Threading allows for a more defined and precise shape and can create better definition for eyebrows. It is also used as a method of removing unwanted hair on the entire face and upper lip area. Threading is not a good method for removing hair on arms or legs, as the hair in those regions is typically quite coarse and there is too much to remove.
