Unlock opportunities with lash extensions for older ladies

Flattering our appearance with eyelash extensions seems like a privilege and an obvious thing for all girls out there. But what about lash extensions for older ladies? It’s never too late to plump up your lashes. The Lash community doesn’t leave any lash fans behind.

1. How does aging affect your eyes?

Thin and sparse lashes:

Just like how your hair changes over the years, your eyelashes will become weaker as you get older: thinner, less dense, and more brittle. Aging slows the lash growth cycle, and the follicles start to produce new lashes less frequently. Moreover, the decrease in natural oil makes your lashes drier and more vulnerable to excessive rubbing or pulling. As a result, your lash line seems to fade away over time!

Light color:

As you age, the amount of melanin (a substance that produces hair, eyes, and skin pigmentation) declines. Your natural lashes turn clear and become less noticeable.

Droopy eyelids:

Sad but true, the droopy, aging skin and the weakness of the muscle that raises the eyelid will result in a sagging eyelid. This makes you look tired and sleepy all the time, and as a lady, this is the least expected change for us!

2. How can eyelash extensions benefit mature eyes?

Aging is part of the process, and you are not alone. What we should do is accept it and find ways to hide these unwanted changes. When it comes to enhancing your eye look, eyelash extensions might be your best friends, no matter how old you are. 

Enjoying the glamorous lash set:

Put suitable lash extensions for older ladies on, and you will feel like you can turn back time. Longer, denser, and more noticeable lashes really open your eyes and rejuvenate your face. 

Say bye to the droopy eye appearance:

The lash extension set will be prominent enough to draw attention away from your sagging eyes. In this case, for perfect camouflage, L and M curls are highly recommended.


Usually, lash extensions can last for 3-4 weeks before needing a refill appointment. For false eyelashes for older women, this period can be shorter due to natural lash health. However, it’s completely worth it, as you don’t have to take on and off the strip lashes all the time or burden your lashes with mascara and rub them hardly at the end of the day. Just wake up and embrace the effortless, gorgeous lash look!

3. How to choose lash extensions for older ladies?

Use lighter lashes

Since eyelashes over 50 are much weaker, as a lash artist, you should be careful with the lash weight you put on the natural lashes. The thickness should range from 0.03 to 0.07 mm. 

At GlamoreyeLash, we commit to providing you with lash extensions made from high quality PBT Korean fiber that are soft, light-weight and comfortable to wear. If you are looking for lash extensions for older ladies, 0.03, 0.05, 0.06, and 0.07 mm lashes are always available for you to order.

Consider brown lashes

If your client does not want too dark lashes but something more natural and noticeable, brown lashes might be a wiser choice for you. Compared to other colored lashes, even black and brown ones suit more people, even if your clients are in middle age or older. They add depth to your lash set without making it appear too fake.

Pick pronounced curls

To hide the droopy eyelid, use extreme curls that have a lifting effect, such as the D, L, and M curls. Although the lash style chosen is totally up to your client’s preference, it’s advisable to recommend they opt for a natural lash style or a dolly lash look so as to be harmonious with the overall appearance.

Use lash serum

A lash serum is meant to support your lashes and make them thicker and fuller. To keep the natural lashes healthy while wearing eyelash extensions and extend the retention time, lash serum will come in handy.

Final thought

No one is too old for lash extensions. With a little more care, you can look much more youthful with a beautiful lash set.

For a lash artist, if you can satisfy your older clients, this can be a competitive advantage for your business. Remember to remind them of proper aftercare routines and pay more attention to these clients. You yourself can bring beauty back to someone in a miraculous way, and I think it’s worth your effort. That’s what makes a lash artist take pride in their lash journey.
