You can barely see them, right??
I feel like I have to wear mascara every day. For years, I have experimented with different mascaras to make my lashes look longer and fuller. I can get the fullness, but not the length. Most mascaras run...or rather, I touch my eyes and/or my eyes water, so I get the raccoon look at the end of most days.
I also use false lash strips sometimes, which are good for going out sometimes, but I can't apply them every day. Ain't nobody got time for that! It's also hard for me to get all the glue off my lashes and eyelids.
I went to a place a couple of years ago to get lash extensions and the woman did not do a good job. I thought my lashes looked a little ridiculous. They were clumpy and so fake-looking. They burned like crazy when she was applying them, and one eye looked different than the other. I said I wouldn't try them again unless I could afford to go to a true professional. I have a friend who does them at an upscale salon, but her prices start at $300! She primarily uses the mink lashes.
My other friend, Oneka, also did them at the same upscale salon, but now does them at another salon where she charges less than $50 for them. I talked to her about how I wanted them to look natural and she promised she could hook me up. I got the individual silk lash extensions almost two weeks ago and I love the results:
They should last 2-3 weeks, and then I could either get them filled back in, or a whole new set. Oneka said that everyone's lash cycle is different, so I just have to see how much my natural lashes shed and how much my daily activities might affect them. I don't rub my eyes much, and I don't have allergies, so I'm hoping to keep them in for about 3 weeks at a time. I've had a few lashes come off, but it's not noticeable. I can still wear eye make-up (I haven't), but I have to use an oil-free remover to take them off. I can go swimming, take a shower, and exercise with them on with no problem. I'm definitely going to get them again!
