Eyelash Extensions - My Experience Before, During As Well As After Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash Extensions - My Experience Before, During As Well As After Eyelash Extensions

I was born without a lot of body hair. I feel lucky; I'm one of the few who have gotten away with not having to wax nor shave my legs EVER. On the downside, my Henna Eyebrows North Brisbane are actually tiny and my eyelashes short, sparse and light like my eyebrows.

henna eyebrowsI do not wear mascara. I discovered my lashes falling off along with mascara when it was time to clean off.

Upon my sister's prodding, I decided to try lash extensions. I have spotted other girls.... Oh, to have lengthy very long butterfly eyelashes!

The process:

The eyelash extensions came in 3 distinct lengths: Long, medium and natural. Because my very own eyelashes are actually short to start with, I went for the all-natural length. The whole process was tedious and long. Each individual eyelash extension had to be glued to my own and I'd to keep my eyelids closed the whole period, trying my best not to move them, as any activity caused the just-glued-but-not-quite-set eyelash to be crooked. In terms of any pain or perhaps discomfort, there was none, apart from the scent of the glue, that was not too bad. I was fidgety the whole time and I couldn't contain my anticipation. After forty five minuets, that looked more like 2 hours to me, the eyelash extension process was done. I looked in the mirror...OMG. Those are not my eyes! They're way too sexy, way too tantalizing! (OMG again!) I had to look long and hard in the mirror. I'd long eyelashes! Not only that, but I looked like I had eyeliner on, too. The sister of mine and I giggled and giggled like 2 teenagers. I walked out of that hair salon quite happily. I did not even take a look at the leaflet that had been handed to be able to me, the "How To Care For" instructions of my new deliciously lush prolific eyelashes.

The maintenance:

My eyelids felt heavier. Why, of course. I quickly found that fluttering longer lashes needed being used to. The evening, when it was a bit of time to clean the face of mine, I also understood two things upon reading my "Eyelash Extension Owner's Manual":

Rule #1. Stay away from (or at least attempt to stay away from) getting your eyelash extensions damp. Water and friction shortens their life span. (In concept, your eyelash extensions are supposed to last forty days, then maintenance to resolve the couple of lashes that have dropped off.) I did my better to clean around my eyes with makeup remover. I quickly realized that this whole business of not getting them wet was very impractical. In the long run, wet them I did. I couldn't get around it.

Rule#2. No rubbing your new eyelashes. This particular one was tougher. I was a perpetual offender. I could not help it. My eyelids itch, I scrub. Longer eyelashes, more rubbing.

Oh well, they're not supposed to survive. If they come off, they come off. In all, my eyelash extensions which were advertised to last over 5 weeks lasted me 3 weeks. During point in time, as the eyelash extensions steadily came unglued, I'd sometimes wished that I'd taken care of them better. I wished I hadn't rubbed or even gotten them wet that much. But during other times, when they made my eyelids itch, I couldn't wait for all the eyelash extensions to come off I pulled as well as unglued them too early.

Would I do it all over again? Most likely not. Although I was happy with my eyelash extensions during the first two weeks, the week or so that followed after that was quite uncomfortable as half of them had already come unglued. I will liken it to growing out a terrible haircut. I'm also a fussy individual and I couldn't keep from rubbing my eyes.

This is not to say that I have given up my quest for long hot eyelashes. I do have the eyes of mine on LATISSE, which prescription eyelash treatment that is imagined to grow them naturally thicker and longer. And then there's TALIKA and another similar product from Peter Thomas Roth that do the job a great deal like Latisse except that they can be purchased without prescription. I don't give up. Onward with the considerable fight for BEAUTY!!
