Lashes (eyelash extensions) are single strands (synthetic, silk, or mink) that are made to replicate a natural eyelash. Single strands are applied to each individual eyelash, one by one. When applied, eyelash extensions lengthen your own natural eyelashes and create volume. With proper application, lash extensions look and feel completely natural. They come in different lengths, thickness, and degrees of curl. They will give you a fuller, darker lash line without the need of mascara. Get your lashes in Mesa and Gilbert by Graceful Glamour!

Your face is the most important part of you. Now is the time to look your very best all the time!
Your eyes are the first feature people look at. As we make eye contact with other people, our eyes communicate in ways that our words cannot. Your eyelashes serve as window dressing to your eyes by enhancing your natural beauty and protecting your eyes.
Eyelashes are the mark of beauty. You might have seen older women who naturally have longer, thicker eyelashes; their face gives the more feminine appearance and becomes a prominent function of their beauty. Lashes make you look younger and wonderful.
Eyelashes have always been regarded as a source of beauty in many cultures. Kohl, a black putty (usually antimony sulfide or lead sulfide), has been worn as far back as 2500 BC to protect and enhance lashes. In Ancient Egypt, it was used as well by the wealthy and the royal to protect their eyes from the sand, dust, and bugs.
Today eyelashes continue to be fashionable and receive attention and enhancement in everyday life and in high-fashion capitals like Paris, Milan, London and New York.
On an evolutionary stand point, having long and thick lashes translates to youth which then translates to fertility. Long and thick eyelashes also have a way of making eyes look larger which again translates to youth and a woman’s ability to bear children. Therefore, making her look more attractive to the opposite sex.
Women, and sometimes men, who have exceptionally long, thick, curled lashes have always been regarded as attractive. This is probably why as early as the 4th century, ancient Indians have been smearing their eyelashes with “Kajal” or khol to make a person look more “lovely” according the Kama Sutra.
Your eyelashes are made to protect you, keeping your sight clean and clear. They are the “gatekeeper” of the eye.
Eyelashes serve a number of functions, most of them protective. Below are some of the functions:
• These short hairs serve to protect the eye from foreign matter, such as dirt, dust and other forms of debris that small enough to get into the eye.
• Eyelashes also help to keep moisture, like sweat or rain, out of your eyes. Their curved shape and the way they are positioned allow them to direct moisture away from your eyes.
• Along with your eyebrows and forehead, your eyelashes also help to shield your eyes from the bright light of the sun. They're not a substitute for sunglasses, but they do help to filter the sunlight.
• Much like whiskers, eyelashes are extra sensitive to being touched. Thus, providing warning that an object (i.e. insects or sharp objects) is getting dangerously close to the eyes.
Some people believe eyelashes have special powers to grant wishes. When an eyelash falls out and lands on the cheek, some people will grab it with their fingertips and blow it away after they make a wish. Have you ever wished on an eyelash? Did your wish come true?
No eye makeup is complete without giving touch up to the eyelashes. These are a vital feature of your eyes which makes it more elegant and attractive. Longer eyelashes redefine your eyes and make them appear gorgeous.
The eyelashes that are connected to the upper eyelid are longer, and can reach up to an average of 8mm in length. They are also more numerous than those that are connected to the lower eyelid. An average of 110 hairs on the upper eyelid and an average of 70 hairs on the lower lash line. Another notable difference would be that eyelashes on the upper eyelid curve upward, while those on the lower eyelid curve the opposite way. This prevents the eyelashes from interlacing when you close your lids.
Eyelashes are hair, so they'll fall out naturally from time to time and grow back on their own. When an eyelash falls out, it can take a month to six weeks to grow back.
Every woman desires to have longer and thicker eyelashes. Most of us have used mascaras to get fuller, thicker and longer lashes. However, these provide you temporary effects and consume a lot of time.
