Why are my eyelashes thinner than they used to be?

Several factors can contribute to thinning lashes, some of which are in your control and others that are not. If you habitually tug or rub your eyelashes, you can cause individual lashes to fall out prematurely. 

Using harsh rubbing to remove your makeup can also damage your lashes, as can misusing eyelash curlers. Certain medical conditions like hyperthyroidism can cause eyelash thinning, and drug interactions can also trigger hair loss, which will affect your lashes. 

Then, there’s the aging process to consider. While this process is usually gradual, you might look in the mirror one day and notice your fringe isn’t quite what it used to be.

If you want to improve the look of your lashes, Marvel Cosmetic offers tinting and extensions.

How can tinting lashes help boost my lash line?

Eyelash tinting at Marvel Cosmetic works in much the same way as having your hair colored. You relax in the treatment chair as your practitioner applies a special dye to your lashes with a brush. The dye is formulated from vegetables and is not the same as regular hair dye, which is often laden with harsh chemicals. Still, because the product is applied so close to your eyes, it’s best to leave tinting to a professional. 

After around 10 minutes of relaxing with your eyes closed, your practitioner removes the dye. Eyelash tinting is a great option for those with light-colored lashes that don’t stand out on their own. In fact, tinting can give you a much more noticeable lash line even without mascara.

How do eyelash extensions work?

Eyelash extensions are a great way to get fuller, thicker, and darker lashes. The process requires gluing extensions to individual lashes, a process that can take up to two hours. You need to recline in the treatment chair and stay still as your practitioner glues each extension into place. 

Your reward for that effort is a gorgeous set of lashes that look full and lush, yet also completely natural. There’s no need to wear mascara after getting lash extensions, and doing so can even damage or break your natural lashes. 

Lash extensions last around three weeks, but you might find yourself returning to have new extensions put into place before then. As your eyelashes go through their normal growth phase, shedding is normal, and your extensions will shed along with their host lash. Pulling or picking at your extensions, or sleeping on your stomach or side will also cause damage.
