I’m a big fan of any beauty hacks that can save me 10 mins in the morning that can be spent in my warm cosy bed instead. Eyebrow tinting, sleeping in plaits – all over it. Eyelash extensions have the same time-saving properties, and more; I actually still look vaguely human without any make up on, who’d have thought it?! If I’ve not sold them to you yet, stay with me…
Eyelash extensions are lots of individual lashes that are applied to each lash. Unlike strip lashes, you don’t take them off daily and (when properly looked after) they can last 6-8 weeks. You can still wear make up with them (just remember to remove it delicately!) but my favourite part is being able to go completely make up free and still feeling comfortable enough to leave the house. They’re fab for holidays too, when you don’t want to bother with the hassle of waterproof mascara – which let’s face it, none of us want to.
Celebrities known to love lash extensions include Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Beyonce, Megan Fox, Jennifer Lopez and more. If it’s good enough for them…
Personally, I don’t find them much hassle at all – just avoid sleeping on your front and brush through with a spoolie regularly – and voila! Picture perfect lashes for up to 2 months.
You can get them super curly, thick, fine, etc – you can chat through the options with your lash specialist and they’ll advise what styles you can wear that won’t damage your natural lashes. You shouldn’t experience any balding or clumps, and if you do, find a new lash technician! They should feel lightweight and look natural.
