Ever wonder how movie stars & models always have such long gorgeous eyelashes? Well, it isn't some magical mascara... the secret is eyelash extensions!
Most women will have tried false lashes at one point or another, but eyelash extensions are a totally different ball game. Traditional falsies are mounted on thin strips you glue to your lids, but lash extensions are different because individual synthetic lashes are glued onto each one of your own eyelashes instead of attached to your eyelid. The biggest benefit though, is they are semi-permanent, meaning you don't have to worry about removing them before bed and they will still be looking fabulous come morning!
It's been a while since I've had my lashes done (the last time I had eyelash extensions was probably for my wedding!) but I recently had the opportunity to get my lashes done at Hush Lash studio here in Winnipeg. Getting a full set of lash extensions does take some time, but it is also wonderfully relaxing since the entire process is done with your eyes closed. My lash technician Cherie was an absolute sweetheart and I loved chatting with her while she skillfully applied the falsies!
Eyelash extensions make you feel super glamorous and it's amazing how adding to your lash line changes your face. I find when I have lash extensions on, I don't feel like I need much else for makeup. A little bit of foundation and a touch of blush was all the makeup I wore for weeks!
So have you tried eyelash extensions before? I'd love to hear about your experience! Make sure to leave me a comment below!
