EYELASH EXTENSIONS 101

Eyelash extensions are all the rage these days.

After seeing a few of my friends with the most gorgeous eyelashes, I knew it was time to jump on board.

’m sure you have worn false lashes a time or two in your life for a fancy occasion, or maybe even your wedding. Eyelash extensions are way different than those annoying strip lashes that always seem to come off at the worst times. I remember panicking through parts of my wedding ceremony thinking my veil had pulled them off as I was walking down the aisle. Thankfully, I was in the clear.

I’m sure you have worn false lashes a time or two in your life for a fancy occasion, or maybe even your wedding.

There are lots of options when it comes to getting lash extensions. However, I suggest going to someone you know. My girl Amanda at Natural Esthetics in Cary (if you are in the area, I highly recommend going to her) was the only person I trusted to do mine for the first time. I was blown away by her skill and expertise when it comes to my skin. So, why not have her do my lashes?

The actual process typically takes between 2-2.5 hours. Let me preface with this. If you cannot sit still or keep your eyes closed for that period of time, eyelash extensions are not for you. I found the whole process to be super relaxing and I even fell asleep several times. For others, it might be difficult.

There is zero pain involved. You hardly even feel her applying the lashes. The glue does have a tendency to sting your eyes if you open them during the application. I would try your hardest to keep them closed the entire time. Amanda does give you a break half way to allow you to get up and stretch your legs which is nice. To me, the entire process was totally worth it when I saw my gorgeous lashes and couldn’t even feel that they were there.

Amanda uses super light-weight (I do not feel mine at all) lashes. They are also high quality. I have not worn eye makeup one single time since I have had mine and it is amazing! You literally wake up with insanely gorgeous lashes. I am all about sleeping in! This has been a lifesaver for me in the mornings.

I am officially addicted and have already gone back for my first fill-in. Your initial set lasts about 2-3 weeks (they lashes will shed naturally). Then, you go back to have them filled in. I did buy a lash conditioner to keep the lashes healthy and prolong the life of my lashes. However, this isn’t required.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
