Hi ladies! I used to get lash extensions regularly. My natural lashes are short and regular mascara just wasn't giving me the length I wanted. I went to Noir Lash Lounge in Vancouver and they did an amazing job. They had different versions you could get, anywhere from full to just a few at the ends. I always went for the full lashes and it would last me 3 weeks and I would then get refills which were cheaper than getting new fills every month. I was really happy with them.
BUT after 8 months of continuous lash extensions, I decided to give my lashes a "break" and had them removed. I was left to little to no lashes! It took a long time for my lashes to grow back. It was not a pretty sight! I regretted it at that time but if you ladies are only going to get it done a couple of months before the wedding, it shouldn't be a problem. You should note that they do take getting used to since you can't rub your eyes, you must use a water-based eye makeup remover and you have to gently take your eye makeup off (qtips are good for this), you shoul avoid getting them wet in the shower (water pressure can affect the glue) and I think steam/saunas may affect them too (not sure on this one).
, I have started using Younique 3D fiber lashes and they are great! Gives me the long lashes and they're natural. They don't put weight on my lashes so I don't have to worry about losing them again lol. Google it, it's awesome. It does take a bit to get used to or you could end up with clumpy or even worse, spider-leg looking lashes
