Looking for a practical alternative to mascara or eyelash curler? Want to simplify your beauty routine during the summer holidays?

Eyelash enhancement and eyelash extensions are ideal solutions to replace mascara and save time every morning, especially during vacation periods.

Although both techniques beautify and intensify the look, they require different levels of maintenance and precautions. It is important to note that these procedures are not suitable for all people, and we will explain the reasons why.

Eyelash Extensions: What are they?Eyelash extensions consist of applying synthetic eyelashes to your natural eyelashes to achieve a more intense look and a fuller lash line.

Maintenance and benefits: Maintaining eyelash extensions involves adopting specific actions in your daily routine:

  • Eliminate the use of mascara.
  • Avoid oil-based makeup removers.
  • Gently brush your eyelashes every morning.
  • Avoid rubbing your eyes.
  • Shampoo your eyelashes daily.
  • If you swim in the sea, rinse your eyelashes afterwards to remove any salt or sand residue.

Eyelash extensions offer the advantage of personalizing the desired effect for your look. The duration varies between 3 and 8 weeks, depending on the porosity of your natural eyelashes and your daily maintenance.


Eyelash Lift / Lamination: What is it? Unlike extensions, this treatment acts on your natural eyelashes, influencing their curvature without resorting to eyelash additions.

Maintenance and benefits: Maintaining an eyelash lift is simpler. You even have the freedom to apply mascara if you wish, accentuating the curl and density of your lashes.

  • Brush your eyelashes regularly to preserve the curl.
  • Limit the use of oil-based products to maintain curl.

The duration of an eyelash lift varies between 5 and 6 weeks, or more if you have a longer regrowth cycle. To intensify your look and promote growth, consider keratin treatment which not only curls and tints but also nourishes your natural eyelashes, making them longer, thicker and shinier.


Choose according to your lifestyle: If you are patient and willing to spend time on maintenance, eyelash extensions offer total customization. If, on the other hand, you favor simplicity and practicality, enhancement should be considered, particularly if your natural eyelashes are short, straight or unruly.
