Pageant Lashes

Pageant Lashes

Contrary to what you may think, eyelash extensions are not necessarily suitable for beauty, or fitness pageants.  The reason being is that pageants  are done on a stage and require “stage makeup”, meaning over the top, heavy makeup, so that the person is not washed out by all the bright lighting.  For eyelash extensions to really work for someone on the stage, they would have to be done very thick, and long, which could not only be damaging to the person’s natural lashes, but make the person look like a drag queen long after the pageant is over!  A better fit would be to wear a heavy strip lash, that will give her the temporary look, but then can be removed right after the competition.  Extensions are perfect for once the competition is over and back to doing normal day to day or promotional activities.  They give the appearance of incredibly beautiful lashes, without the daily application of mascara.  They are perfect for photography & HD television.  Strip lashes look harsh & terrible for pretty much any other setting besides the stage, and maybe a very dark night club!
