Ah the joys of long, beautiful eyelashes!
I frequently get asked about mine, so I figured I would do a post! I’ve tried the lash extensions…but it took about 3 hours and they put about 100 lashes on each eye. While it was nice to relax I don’t have that kind of time or $! The refills were every two weeks and about an hour or more in the chair. While they were glamorous, I ended up yanking them all off and my eyelashes took a little while to grow back. They itched and were hard to get makeup off of them. The only other time I could imagine having them is pregnant or after just having a baby where you want to look glamorous but don’t have the time to spend putting makeup on.
Here are the lashes I use:
They’re my absolute favorite!
I used to use Duo, but I got word that it has formaldehyde in it so I searched for a non-toxic glue for my lids. I use Georgie Beauty’s lash glue. It’s $8 and free shipping #win
False lashes will last about a month depending on wear – no sob sessions here! If you do cry, peel them off 😉 Otherwise, peel the bit of glue off and re-use them. I usually trim mine a tad bit with nail clippers and store them in the little plastic case they come in.
1. Apply eyeliner

3. Apply concealer around eyes, etc.
4. Apply the lashes
5. Pat with black eye shadow to set the lashes

I hope you have a happy & fabulous holiday season!
