@calgarybride2015

So did you have them done? The lash extensions?


@malyna

 

Would you get them done again? I am nervous about my lashes ended up shorter than they are but they do grow back, it will just take a while I suppose. Why couldn't I be born with voluminous long lashes, I wouldn't have this problem now...lol

Maybe I will book an appointment for January? I could have a couple of fills before the wedding. Question though, the more fills you get the more damage to your natural lashes?

No I haven't, but I have had next to no eye lashes so fake ones that *could* trash your lashes aren't something I am comfortable with. Back in 2010 I bought waterproof mascara and then I started losing all my lashes.   Once I realized it was the mascara and I switched to non-waterproof I was ok, but it took forever for them to grow back.  I had to use a thick black eyeliner to give the impression they were there.


I think it's a prescription serum that you put on your eyelashes to make them grow.

 

I'm currently using this Rimmel Lash Accelerator Serum that you can get at drug stores that some people swear produces the same results, but I don't think I remember to use it consistently enough to vouch for the results yet, but I'll try to be better about using it every day and report back!

 

Ohhh now that you say that a friend of mine swears by this medicine you put on your lashes. She asked me to get her some from the Pharmacy in the Cancun airport. I should ask her what it is called, not that that helps us in US/Canada but maybe you US ladies have access to it.

I might just go for that super mega ultra 3D mascara you see people selling these days to avoid having to deal with fake lashes or extensions.  I definitely don't want to deal with glue-on ones the day of!

I found that the eye lash extensions did do a number on my real lashes. :(

I also thought that my first set was probably the best as far as results. I won't get the extensions for my wedding because of the damage. I am either going to use a set of mink lashes or individual lashes for the big day. They make really natural looking sets that my brides love! 

Avoiding the mascara route because of crying (I'm a baby, so I am sure there will be TEARS) lol

Another thing to consider with the eye lash extensions (and what most people like about them) is that you have a more finished look for all your wedding events without having to worry about your mascara running (rehearsal, photos by the pool, etc.). One less thing to worry about. When I did them, it was prior to a vacation. I loved that with a tan and the extensions, I didn't really need make up. You are not supposed to get them wet though (like submerged), so that is something to consider also. Hope that helps

Latisse is medical grade syrum and it works amazingly! It's not cheap.... But probably the same as extensions with one or two fills.

    Hi Girls,

    I am now 4 months out from my wedding. I am really considering getting eyelash extensions done but should I try getting them done now and keep getting them filled or wait a little longer until it's only like a couple months away from the wedding? Also I am a little scared because I have heard people say before that the eye lash extensions make your real lashes shorter and more sparse. Is this true? I don't have a whole lot of natural lashes there to begin with.

     

    What do you girls recommend? Have any of you had an experiences with lash extensions - good or bad?

     

    Thanks ladies,

    I have mine done but I have had them for years now.  LOVE them.  My sister who is my bridesmaid had them done for the first time last month and we leave on Jan 25 2015  It does take a little getting used to.  She has had them for 2 weeks now and absolutely loves them.

    @DorisEacott,

     

    So do you continuously get them done? I am really considering more so of getting them done then not. Maybe I should just bite the bullet and give them a try. Worse case is the look after the wedding, but I won't be so concerned then, just let them grow back out again(my natural lashes)

    What do you mean when you say "take a little getting used to"?  What's the hardest/weirdest part about having them on?
