BEAUTY BLABBER | LASHES
By Huda Heidi Kattan
Hey my loves!! So a few weeks ago I tried out the much-raved about lash extensions that most people love, but many hate! It was my first time, and I honestly loooooved them! After finally taking them off, and by taking them off I mean yanking them off, I realized that the whole they ruin-your-lashes-claim really depends on how you deal with them. My sister Mona and I both got them the same time (Mona got them 2 days before me) and both of us had completely different outcomes when we removed them! Mona was so gentle with them and didn’t wear any mascara while she had them on and they lasted for over 3 weeks looking full and gorgeous right until she removed them. Me on the other hand, I wear false lashes all the time I was very rough with them, yanking most of them out. I knew I wouldn’t be able to be gentle, but I told myself I would try to be! I was pretty careful, the first few days, but then went back to piling makeup on them and really kind of tugging at them! I had them on for a little over a week before they started to look scary, but Mona had them on for almost four! So my conclusion with lash extensions are they really are for women who are very gentle with their eye area and can go with lighter makeup! I also recommend getting lashes that are not too long, so they won’t irritate your eyes. As far as getting them all the time, I know women who do and they love them, so I think you can get them if you really want, just be VERY careful! Also, you have to make sure you have a great application! If your application sucks, then more than likely you will have one lash extension glued to multiple lashes which will make it more uncomfortable leading to more irritation and tugging at the lashes!
PS There will definitely be a shock factor when you remove them. When Mona took her’s off she was like “OMG, I think all my lashes fell off and just grew back in because they’re all so tiny.” When I saw her it was obvious they were just like they were before, but she was a bit shocked! Remember, it takes around 7 weeks for your lashes to grow, so if you did have any lashes that fell out while wearing the lash extensions, you wouldn’t see them yet, so if your lashes look shorter it’s just because you were wearing some insanely long lashes that make them appear tinier!
