I’ve never got them, but my Future Sister-In-Law does them and is doing mine for the wedding! The girls who go to her love them 🙂 I’m a Forester so I don’t need eyelash extentions for my day to day life when the only things to see me are my dog and trees!

I have had them and loved them.

I had two makeup trials with seperate makeup artists and i find putting on false lashes never quite looks right.

there is always one eye that doesnt seem to look right. also it feels like they will fall off.

 

i recently did another trial of eyelash extensions and love them. you could be wearing no makeup and you look so glamrous!

do you have time to do a trial?

They do ruin your eyelashes but eyelashes do also grow back. I wouldnt be getting them all the time.

I wish I had done it, we eloped as well and I considered it but decided not to because of the cost. I attempted individual false lashes on the day of but my hand was shaking so hard that I could only get a few on. Definitely get the extensions, just research places first because I’ve seen some amazing jobs and some bad ones.

I had them after posting this 

Eyelash extensions – any bees have them?

I like them and would have them again. As pp said, getting the right tech is key. 

Ps – dying to know about Tokyo manicures now!

I had them done for my wedding a few weeks ago and as lovely as they are and saves you so much time in the morning, I am now left with little to no eye lashes so i have nothing to put mascara on and i’m looking a bit bare faced now. But I would still get them done again because they are so nice! 🙂

I get mine done year-round and I LOVE them. The fake lashes will fall out naturally since they are attached to yours – your own lashes only have a “lifespan” of a few weeks, so if you choose not to continuously get extensions, you will be back to your regular lashes within 2-4 weeks with no lasting effects. Saves me a ton of time in the morning, and I wear much less makeup day-to-day. Definitely go for it!

I don’t like them, because I rub my eyes a lot and you can’t really do that with extensions. I did have a lash ‘lift’ recently, which is basically a perm for your eyelashes plus a black tint. Again, didn’t love that either… my hair generally takes perms wayyy too well, so my eyelashes are almost weirdly curly just now. That being said, I’d totally have them tinted again, because I don’t need to wear mascara at all now. laughing

What kind of extensions has everyone been getting? I’ve seen mink? Is that the best?

I had them done for my wedding and started getting them a couple months before (refills every otehr week) just so I could get used to them. I did like them, although taking eye make-up usually took longer than it should. But, it was nice to not have to worry about them.

Unfortunately, I became allergic (luckily after my wedding), so I had to stop. I don’t know if they changed glue or what, but my eyes got all puffy after I’d get them refilled so I assumed it was them. It also could have been some make-up that maybe changed formula, but I never really knew.

Don’t go buy cost, as sometimes the cheaper places don’t do that great of job. Look around and ask others!

I’m obsessed with my eyelash extensions! I was unsure about them at first too but I love them. The process to get the full set was long (about three hours) but fills are significatnly less time and money. I don’t have to wear a single bit of makeup with them and I look flawless everyday. I’ve actually convinced several friends and family to get them since they love mine so much! I highly recommend them!

One item of note, they do not ruin your natural lashes as long as you don’t pick at them when they start to get a bit wonky and loose. I got a fill after I noticed a few lashes that were spinning in the wrong directions (about two weeks). If you try and pluck them off you will end up plucking out your natural lash as well. Don’t pick at them, let your lash artist fix them.

legojedi :  Used to live there and would get my nails done every 2-3 weeks. I’m a gel nail girl all the way. The services there are amazing, you just got to tell them to overdo the cuticles because sometimes they get a bit too trigger happy. If you’re doing designs, it may take up to 2-3 hours. My longest session was 4 and I did very intricate paintings. Most nail salons have eyelash extension services so I’d check that out. You can get them done simultaneously. Those packages for 100+ strands look divine!

I loved them. Honestly all the fearful stories I heard of : allergic reactions, annoyance, rubbing, damage, how they grow out, etc…I did not experience. I loved having them and I even got a refill three weeks after my wedding. I’m letting them fall out now but I’ll definitely get them done again. I have pale short eyelashes and having extensions really opened up my eyes and face. And I also did my own make up on my wedding day and having those eyelashes was life-saving. 

That said, I have a wonderful eyelash extentions technician who is experienced and great at it. She herself says that some of them damage their clients eyelashes by “gluing many eyelashes onto one natural eyelash”. Anyway I loved it. And Id highly recommend it.

kimberleyj :  You shouldn’t lose eyelashes with eyelash extensions. I’ve gotten them done many many times and they have just fallen off naturally. The key is looking for a good technician and your own eyelashes should not be ruined.
