After reading Miss Clouds post about her eyelash extensions I can’t stop thinking about them! I think I may get them & will wait till just a little over a week before the wedding to get them.
But, I’ve been looking everywhere at it appears that if you choose to do the “natural” eyelash extension, it really isn’t that noticable at all, to me it looks like the girls just curled their own lashes & then put some mascara on.
So, have any of you girls had your eyelashes done? Was it a noticable difference?

I’ve had them done a few times. My natural eyelashes are dark and fairly thick/long. I felt like the extensions were perfect. I didn’t look crazy dramatic during the day, but it was definitely noticeable, ie. people saying I looked pretty or my makeup was really pretty, etc. I followed the care instructions pretty carefully (but I did wear eyeliner and a light coat of mascara) and kept mine on until they grew out, about a month and a half. I even had to trim a few along the way because they got too long as my natural lashes grew! I also loved waking up looking like I had mascara and curled lashes! I’m not sure what the ‘natural’ eyelash extension is, but I think my makeup artist did about 35 -40 lashes per eye. I got them with a friend who is blonde with thinner lashes and hers looked amazing, too. The only people I have heard of who had problems were people with gaps between their lashes because there is nothing to attach the lashes to to fill in the gaps. Getting them a week before your wedding is probably perfect timing. You’d have them for the pre-wedding events, the big day, and the honeymoon, at least. I definitely recommend!

never had them done but honestly the girls that i have seen get them done, my personal opinion nothing special……i wear the strip lashes on the weekend when i go out and they look awesome maybe $5 a pair makes such a difference in my eyes when i wear them!!!!

I do eyelash extensions and I have to say, my clients that get them done for their wedding are super happy with them. They totally enhance the eye and look amazing in photos. The extensions that you’ve seen, they probably didn’t do them long enough in length. They last about 4-6 weeks and would also be great on your honeymoon because you literally don’t have to wear any eye makeup. Good luck with your wedding!
