    I got eye lash extensions before I left for my wedding. It was very very odd, they have to tape down your bottom lashes and then you lay down with your eyes closed and they glue lashes onto your lashes. Then you wait while the glue dries and then when you open your eyes they are a little stuck and they have to cut the glue that is stuck. It was so strange and it took 45 minutes. When they were done, before I looked at them I hated it and wondered why I did it, it was a pain in the ass. BUT, when I looked at them in the mirror I LOVED them. I still love them. My make up on my wedding day looked a thousand times better because of my lashes. Also, all week long I did not put on any make up at all and I looked pretty good. People kept asking me what kind of mascara I used because my lashes looked so great. No one could tell they were fake until I told them. They are supposed to last 4 to 6 weeks and then after that a few will fall out and you will need touch ups. I had a few fall out sooner than that, after the wedding day of course, but I was in the pool and ocean all day and sweating and showering a lot and putting lots of sunscreen and lotion on my face. So, these are extreme circumstances and I do not doubt that without all of that they would last 4 to 6 weeks for sure. I still have them in, only a few fell out and they still look good. None have fallen out since I got home.

    I wish I had before and after pics for you, but I don't. When I get the close up shots from the photographer though, I can show you how they look. You do not need to put mascara on at all. I love that part.

    I would recommend them, as long as you can get through the 45 uncomfortable minutes, then they are totally worth it. I would do it again for sure.

      i love the idea of not having to worry about putting mascara on while i'm hanging around the beach for 2 weeks... how much did it cost?

        It was $60 and totally worth the money. Its a lot of work for them to do it, so I am kinda surprised it cost so little. Worth it for sure.

          Thanks for the update, Julie. I am so doing this. I think I will do a trial run for Matt's cousins wedding this month. Now gotta track down a reasonably priced place near me to do it...

                  Very Cool! thanks for sharing :)
                  you said that they fell out when you were playing in the poiol and ocean the day after the wedding. Did you do anything like that before the wedding? or did you stay out of the pool/ocean thinking they would fall out?

                    I did go in the pool and ocean and all that good stuff before the wedding, I did it all. lol I tried to stay out of the sun so I would not have crazy tan lines or burn, but I did all the water stuff. Also, when I say a few fell out, you can not tell at all. If they did not fall onto my face where I saw them I would never have known. So, I would not worry about that, at all.
