I was just wondering if any brides out here have had, or are planning on getting eyelash extension??  I love the look of a little extra eyelashes, but I'm afraid that a strip of glue on lashes will start to lift by the end of the day with all of the mexican heat and humidity...if you've had them done before, I would LOVE to see pictures!!

IVe heard a lot of ppl lately getting eyelash extensions. I am thinking of getting them done for my wedding as well. I dont want the fake glue on ones falling off in the ceremony!! The extensions stay on for a bout 3 weeks so it sounds pretty perfect!

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

I just like the idea of being able to go swimming and being in the sun for hours without getting mascara all over the place.... Found these pictures online, I think the middle ones are my favorite. I always love how big Kim K's eyes look, but I think those might be a bit too extreme for me to pull off..I'm not sure if  i'd get them on the bottom lashes either

I too also love kim K eyes. I dont wear mascara on bottom lashes. I think i would for myself, get the top ones. but not the bottom ones.

 

My friend is getting married in August. So im thinking of using her wedding as a trial for the extensions. and then if it looks good ILl get them for my wedding.


im doing a TTD session so dont really wanna wear make up or mascara since it will run. ;/

    Where do you get eyelash extensions? Beauty salons? How much are they typically? I wore fakers on a vacation to Jamaica and they fell off four days into the trip

    Wow they lasted 4 days? That's great!! Usually I cant get mine to stay on more than one day....

     

    If you just Google eyelash extensions in your town, places near you should pop up....I guess it depends on where you live. For instance, I live in Boston and you can get them at hair salons, medi spas, dermatology offices, and there are even boutiques that specifically apply eyelashes. I believe prices probably depend on where you live as well. Ive seen anywhere from $200-$300 here in the city, but there about $150 in the small town where my parents live.

     

    Not sure if you're familiar with Groupon, but sometimes they offer deals on local salons that offer extensions as well.

      I thought 4 days was good too considering we were in the pool and in humidity. Have you had your extensions done before? I'm afraid they will make my real lashes fall out.

      I've never had them before. I've heard that people who get them done consistently do lose some eyelashes, but I'm not too sure if that's the case if you only have them done once. Think i'll look into that though!

        I’ve been getting eyelash extension since January of this year and I love them.  They were supposed to be a trial for the wedding day, but I’m hooked and have been getting them refilled every 3 weeks ever since.  I will get a fresh set for the wedding though and probably a bit fuller/longer then my everyday length below.  The pic is my before and after.  My biggest point of advice is to pick someone with a portfolio of close up before and after pics and that comes recommended from someone you know and have seen the lashes on first hand.  This is a skill set that most don’t have or don’t have the patience to do correctly.  A full set takes my tech 1.5 to ensure that every lash is isolated and that they don’t get clumped together.  Let me know if you have any questions.
