A few weeks ago, I went to see Jess of [Jes]Thetics for a set of eyelash extensions.
As someone with pretty small eyes, I've ben wanting to try these for a while.
I'm someone who can't leave the house without my mascara or people stop and ask me if I'm sick haha
Those of you who know me well, know that sitting still and not talking are not my fortes haha
The only thing I was hesitant of before visiting Jess was lying still for 2 hours.
The time actually flew by though and when it was time to get up and see, I was blown away by my new lashes.
I instantly felt like I just had a makeover, but in reality I wasn't wearing a drop of makeup.
I looked in my windshield mirror every red light on the way home, I was so in love with my new lashes haha
A lot of you had sent me your questions on Instagram about the experience, care etc of eyelash extensions so I'm going to answer them for you below.
Are they worth the money?
150% they are worth the money!
An initial set of lashes is going to cost you $90 but to come back for a refill is only $45
I'm telling you though, eyelash extensions completely change your daily makeup routine.
I can wake up in the morning and run out the door now without feeling the need to put on any makeup.
How often do you need to refill?
Every 3-4 weeks depending on how well you care for your lashes.
What are the cons to having eyelash extensions?
For me, it was really hard to adjust to showing after getting my eyelash extensions.
I'm used to getting in and rubbing my eyes with water as I wash my face, but with eyelash extensions this can damage the eyelashes.
Is there a lot of care involved?
Not at all! They are very easy to care for actually.
A little rinse with water and some brushing with the wand Jess gives you throughout the day and that's it!
Can I still wear mascara and eyeliner?
Jess recommends not wearing any mascara, and there really isn't a need for it with eyelash extensions!
I do wear eyeliner if I'm going out but I make sure that I'm extra careful when removing it, using an oil-free makeup remover and a q-tip.
I hope I answered all of your questions you might have on eyelash extensions.
