I have always wanted to try individual eyelash extensions, but never have. With my wedding at the end of January I thought this would be a good time to give it a try.
Individual eyelash extensions is a process of adding longer and thicker individual lashes on to you existing lashes. A beautician uses a type of glue that allows the additional lashes to be bonded on to your own lashes.
I had my concerns with this process but the vanities of life got the best of me.
The total process took 1 hour, and I opted for the ‘normal’ looking lashes. As my eyelashes are naturally curved I got ‘C’ and ‘D’ shaped lashes. (A and B are ‘flatter’ looking)
My eyes were protected using a shield of some stuff, this was rather uncomfortable, but after I relaxed it got better.
The glue they use is very strong as was evident in my extension staying on for up to 4-6 weeks and also from the smell. After the application was done, my eyes started to tearup but it quickly clear off.
I would definitely do them again, I thought my lashes looked very natural, and my vision was not compromised, nor did I feel them on my eyelid. But it would be more for an occasion.
Have you tried individual eyelash extension? :o)
