Peek-a-boo! Eyelash extensions! Who knew? Eyelashes have been all the rage for quite sometime now. I have always been intrigued by the extensions but have always been to lazy to find a place, make an appointment and go try it. I have known people who have had them and loved them and they looked great. So, I was thrilled when we got an awesome new girl, Annie, at my salon who does them as well as nails and waxing! I have no excuse for not being on top of my beauty game now!
My Report: I think (and have been told) that my eyelash extensions look totally natural but really pump up the volume. They took an hour to have applied. They felt really odd the first day and evening but after that I haven’t felt them at all. They do move around a bit when I sleep and I have to reposition them in the morning. I wasn’t prepared for the fact that my mascara would be taking a vacation. It feels weird to skip that part of my make up routine. Even putting on eyeshadow is different because the lashes are longer then my natural. I have not tried eyeliner yet as I am afraid I will mess up the lashes when I try to remove it. Washing my face and getting them wet in the shower is really different because I can’t wipe the water out of my eyes to open them. I have to wash my face and then reach out for a towel and carefully pat my eyes dry. That part is kind of annoying but hey, women do crazy things for beauty! For that reason I am not sure I could comfortably go swimming underwater. The going rate for the initial application is around $90, lasts about 4 weeks and then you get fills that average $30. I do look more awake and alive without make up now and that is awesome! All in all I am very happy with them and it has been a fun beauty test drive!
