Lash Extensions! My Thoughts♥

Eyelash Extensions!

I love them!

Hello Lovelies ♥

I thought that I would write a post about when I had my eyelash extensions put on & how I liked them!  I decided to get eyelash extensions after watching youtube videos by Alexandrea Garza.  She sold me on them!

I got on yelp and tried to find the best price for the best quality I could find.  I found a woman with very good reviews who would do it for $40.  This was for synthetic lashes and their application.


I have pretty light hair naturally, and have pretty light colored eyelashes.  They're not particularly long, but considering my genetics, are skyscrapers of lashes.

The process begins with the esthetician taping down the lower lashes, so that your top and bottoms don't get glued together.  They only put lashes on the top.  She applied each lash, one at a time.  It takes a long time, but I'm blanking on the length.  A lot of people fall asleep during this, but I counted songs to try and help the time go by.  It doesn't hurt at all.  It just feels like someone lightly touching your eyelashes, nothing mroe.


This was my after.  I asked for dramatic and full lashes.  They were so beautiful.  You can't get them wet for at least the first day to try and keep the glue working.


While you have them on, you're supposed to try and avoid eye makeup, especially mascara.  Mascara is pretty much a no-go unless you have a VERY special event. Honestly, these lashes are so beautiful and dark, you don't need mascara.


While I had them on I think I only put on eye makeup once or twice.  I found I really didn't need it on with the lashes.  They were dramatic enough on their own.  


Closer side by side.


I know it's hard to tell from those pictures, so I'm including more of me out and about.  

This is me with my Grandlittle [left] and Little [middle].

This is a really weird picture of me, but here I am with our giant peep cake we made for Easter!


At Disneyland with one of my besties! Only wearing face makeup and a little lip gloss here.

This picture was one of the first I took after getting my lashes done.  I took it on snapchat, which explains the weird filter :p

You cannot sleep on your face, or side of your face with these on.  You have to keep your face pointed up while you sleep, which was very hard for me.  I tended to sleep on one side more than the other, and those lashes tilted a bit, which wasn't quite so great.  

You also have to take a great bit of caution when washing your face and showering.  You can't scrub your face like usual, because you have to take great caution with your eyes.

Overall, I LOVE having lashes.  It's been a while, but I'm planning on getting more done in a bit, closer to my birthday in October! ♥
