I’ve been toying with the ideas of getting fake lashes for my wedding- someone i work with has them and they look really good- very antural. I’ve booked an appointment this afternoon- as I figure i have enough time now (9weeks) before my wedding to try it out as a look and see how I feel… I’m worried they will look really fake- like caterpillars on my eyes!
what are people’s experiences of fake lashes? and how much should I be looking at for a full set price wise?
Sorry I just wanted to confirm 🙂 yes those are extensions and they are wonderful!! I’ve had mine for almost 2 years now (you get a full set then infills every 2-4 weeks)
i paid $120 AUD for a full then then $40 AUD for infills, so £35 seems very reasonable to me, but with different countries its hard to say.
for me the benefits are they look amazing and natural, people are always saying how lovely they are and are shocked when I say they are fake. I haven’t worn mascara in 2 years which was particularly good when I was bawling during the wedding speeches haha
cons are the price, $40 every 3 weeks but its my only treat. sometimes she puts longer ones on and they tickle my glasses, and when I’m in need of an infill (lots have fallen out) they get a bit tangled because there are gaps and it might turn around so it’s poking me in the eye. I just have to give them a little comb with a brow brush
I have had eyelash extensions and I hated them. They looked fantastic but after one week they hurt! And I couldn’t sleep on my stomach because they would pinch from the weight. I paid $60 and they were the individual silk ones. I’d rather just do strips everyday than do extensions again.
I am going with the partial extensions on my wedding day. Depending on the length and thickness of your extensions, I think it can look ridiculous on someone’s wedding day if they are too over the top! Hope you find a length that you like! I don’t think it hurts to enhance your lashes the day of!.
