Eyelash Extensions *post ALL info here*

Recommended Posts

The best investment I made (besides in my new husband!) were my eyelash extensions! I am one who usually doesn't wear a whole lot of make-up, but I was so excited for my eyelashes! I looked fabulous at all times - in the water and out. No mascara running, just naturally amazing at all times. Everyone was commenting on them the whole week of my wedding! I thought about keeping it a secret, but I had to tell everyone to try them out for themselves.

 

I got them in NYC at JJ Eyelashes http://jjeyelashes.com/. I had a Yelp coupon for 50% off. I got the longest ones you could get, and fanned them out at the edges. They did a great job. I highly recommend getting eyelash extensions instead of using prescriptions (Latisse), wearing fake ones just the day of, or wearing tons of mascara that may end up oozing down your face by the end of a swim or, worse, your wedding day!

I'm debating on Latisse vs eyelash extensions so thanks for the input! Why would you not recommend Latisse? Also, do you have any pictures you can post?

I went to JJ Eyelashes a few months ago! I love them!  I got the most dramatic ones to try out and they actually lasted a good 6 weeks.  I had some stragglers for a good month which looked a little weird (I didn't touch up).  They really did look great and I'm debating on doing them again for the wedding.  The only problem with the extensions is that they are not quite as dramatic as fake eyelashes and they are much more expensive.

 

For the wedding, did you add anything extra (mascara or more fake lashes)?  Would you be willing to share pictures of your eye makeup on your wedding day?  I'm curious as how the lashes show up in photos.

I'm having them put on. I want them to last the entire trip. The place I go to has 2 types 1 that lasts 1-2 weeks for $35 and 1 that lasts 4 weeks for $70.

I tried the $35 ones and they looked good but they are not each individual, they are glued on in little bunches of 5 so the glue felt thick and I kept playing with them, looking, even close though you couldnt tell. For the wedding I want the singles so I have no worries.

 

Anyone have experience with hair extensions? Ive used the clip ons in the past but want the ones that stay in, just like the eyelashes

So since my previous post, I have become a lash girl for sure. It gives my little almond eyes the extra pop I need. Here's the problem - singles or clusters. The thing with individual lashes is that they are placed one to one on top of the lash. It's great and all, but actually doesn't give me as much pop as I want. With the clusters, I get a TON of pop! It depends on how "natural" you want your lashes to look. I have no problem with my lashes looking slightly "fake" in person because I want them to look good in pictures! Those last forever lol

Decisions, decisions...! :)

I'm also a huge fan of eyelash extensions (mine were from JJ in NYC as well)

 

My bachelorette party was on a lake, so I figured boating, swimming and various water antics were the best place to test them out - and they worked amazingly.  I was nervous they'd look weird, fall off, pull my eyelashes out, etc - nada.

 

My closest friends and sisters asked what mascara I was wearing and didn't believe me at first that they were fake.  I figured if they couldn't tell, well, nobody will.  It was a bit odd when they started falling out a few weeks after that though - but not enough to keep me from doing them for our wedding.  They stayed in place for 3 days of fun + another 2 weeks - so they should be good enough for the 2 weeks we'll be in Mexico.

I'm so excited that I found a thread about this on BDW!  A few weeks ago when I had my engagement session I went to MAC to have my makeup done, and to my hair salon to have my hair done.  I was trying to stock up on tips for my upcoming wedding, especially my TTD for which I'll likely be doing my own makeup.  I was most nervous about my eyelashes - I didn't want to wear false ones and have them fall off half way through the TTD (which the woman at MAC said they likely would) nor did I want to go the day with just my plain boring lashes!
 

So I found out about Butterfly Lash Extension and think it will likely be the perfect solution!  They are individually glued lashes all applied to your existing lashes as dramatic as you choose!  They are super pricey, but I think they'll be worth it!  That way I won't have to worry about mascara and running for my entire week away, and at least 5 weeks thereafter!  What could be better!  I do have a question, however.  They say that you absolutely don't need mascara, but they sell one that can be used for special occasions.  Has anyone tried this?  I just wouldn't want it to ruin my lashes and have to worry about cleaning it off after!

Wow this is such a neat thread, exactly what I was looking for. So which ones are better from MAC or JJ?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
