Happy Sunday Babes! I am super excited to share my lash extension experience with you guys today. If you follow me on Instagram then you already know a few weeks ago I got lash extensions for the first time. I got them at a place not too far from my house called Lash & Brow Boutique. I am SO glad that I got them done here for my first time because the awesome Kayla who did them, was wonderful, 100% professional, and did an AMAZING job. Here are the before and after pics so you can see what I'm saying, also please ignore my OUT OF CONTROL brows because I hadn't tweezed them before these pics and they look like legit bushes.
I literally spent most of the day that I had them done checking my self out anytime I could because they looked too great. I mean how could you not be in love with this?! Do keep in mind though that these were done with the knowledge that I had a lot of photoshoots coming up and wanted to have bomb lashes for them but if I was going to keep them up they wouldn't be able to be that thick or else they would start to cause damage.
Now lets talk a little about the actual process of getting the extensions. So first of all it DOES NOT hurt. A lot of people including myself think this but its 100% not true. You feel no pain what so ever. All you feel is the tweezers moving lashes around and then the feeling of the new lash being glued to yours, a little strange but not painful.
If you wear contacts you have to take them out so I just wore my glasses into the appointment. You also have to wait until the next day to wear contacts but I mean its not that long so totally worth it. Really the only complaint I have about the whole process is that it takes FOREVER. I mean mine took about 3.5 hrs but it's also because I got such an insane set. People who get the more natural look only take about 2 hrs I have heard. Once they are applied though, touch ups only range from 45-50 minutes.
I honestly have to tell you guys that I am obsessed with lash extensions. If you can afford the upkeep I recommend them completely. They literally make you look so put together even without any makeup. I went makeup free so much more and felt so much better about doing it. I would get them again in a heartbeat. Also I know you're all wondering about any damage to my lashes and I am happy to report my lashes are perfectly healthy and the same as the day I went in to get the extensions. I have read stories about women wearing lashes for YEARS with no damage so if you want lash extensions I say go for it guys! You have nothing to lose and all the lash goals to gain ;)
