Lash Extensions Q & A + My Experience

6:29:00 AM


If you have been following along on Instagram Stories, then you know that I have been talking quite a bit about my lashes. More recently, I got extensions for the second time and wanted to share a little bit about my experience as well as some questions I have received.

I get my lashes done at Amazing Lash in Garland. If you live in the area I highly recommend booking an appointment with Tyi. She can do a full set of lashes in about 50 minutes. It makes for an easy first time experience if you go to someone who can get you in an out fast.

Lash extensions have been a life saver when it comes to my morning makeup routine. I don't have to apply mascara or eyeliner, so basically my makeup routine consists of foundation, concealer and brows! I also feel like I look totally put together without any makeup at all too. And I typically don't wear any when I have extensions.


HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
It can take anywhere from 1-2 hours to get a full set applied. But, it all depends on the style you want.

DO THEY DAMAGE YOUR NATURAL LASHES?
They do not damage your lashes at all. After, the first time I got them done, I let all my extensions naturally fall out and my real lashes were left underneath. They looked the exact same as they did before lash extensions.

IS IT PAINFUL?
It is not painful at all. I would say if anything a little uncomfortable at first, but once you get used to it, it goes by so fast you don't even notice.

IS IT SCARY?
At first, I was a little scared. I don't like anyone really touching my eyes, so this took a little getting used to. But, my second time I was a lot more laid back and it was a lot faster experience. Make sure you wear something you are comfortable in because you are laying down for a while.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The price ranges from $79.99-$89.99 for a full set. It is expensive, but seriously saves me so much time in the morning. It makes it worth it in the long run.

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHICH STYLE TO CHOSE?
At first I just thought, natural was the way to go. But, after chatting with my most recent tech she suggested a fuller style for my eye shape. I have to say I like the way it looks a lot better. I think chatting with the tech to get their opinion helps when trying to chose the style for you.

HOW DO YOU APPLY MAKEUP?
When I have extensions I feel like I don't even need makeup at all. But, when I do wear makeup I don't wear mascara. They do say that you can wear light mascara on the tips of the lashes, but I personally haven't tried that before. I try to do as little to them as possible. This is totally a personal preference, but the less you do to them, the longer they last.

HOW DO YOU WASH YOUR FACE?
I just do my normal routine, but take extra care around my eyes. I don't use any oil based skin care products. I make sure to brush out my lashes every night and morning. This really helps keep them looking good.
