Hi Ladies, just some quick note about eyelash extensions to answer some questions I saw some of you post...
I am an eyelash technician and if done properly you shouldn't feel them at all.
They shouldn't feel heavy and shouldn't damage your natural lashes. I read how some of you were able to remove them with baby oil...if it was done with quality glue and done right then oil would not work to remove them. Over time oil could break down the bond but not in one shot.
They are really durable and you can swim, and sleep, and wash your face like you normally would...just avoid oily makeup remover or waterproof mascara (most people don't wear mascara with them anyways) and keep your lashes dry for the first 24-48 hours.
Also, read that someones eyes were very sensitive and watery after they took their contacts out...please take your contacts out BEFORE getting them done as your eyes are shut for 2 hours and it will definitely cause irritation and dryness for your eyes.
My suggestion would be to make sure you consult your technician about length and thickness so that you get the desired look you are looking for. If done properly they should shed slowly like your natural lashes and most come for fills every 3 - 4 weeks without them looking too sparse.
I would recommend getting them done about 4 weeks before your wedding...then again on the week before you go away get a fill. They will be thicker then the first set put on and it will give you time to get used to them and make sure you like them. I love them for vacations...not mascara and your eyes pop all day long.
Ill be getting them done for my wedding. If anyone has any questions about them I'd be happy to answer them. Just send me a message.
