If you are lazy to put on fake lashes every time or layers of mascara, lash extension is definitely a great friend of yours to make your eyes look awesome. This was done by Vivian in January.
I happened to see Madame Madeline’s site and realized that it’s possible to do a semi-permanent lash extension myself. Unless you want it to be done perfectly nice, just find a professional one. I just want to try it out myself. (I’m not so picky).
I went to nearby local drugstore to get Ardell Duralash in Flare Medium Black, Lashfree Remover and Lashtite Adhesive in Dark. Total costs damage? Around $25.
A nice lash extension service costs from $60 to $120 and if you dislike it, you will have to pay another $10 to $20 for removal service. They have top quality lashes from Japan, Korea and Taiwan. Everything is about money.
Also, a good lash extension done by the professional using top grade medical adhesive can last up to 3 months with your proper care too. Yes, you need to have “perseverance” proper care. Sounds like a big deal!
As a first timer, I did not expect it to be nice or simple. I was just treating it as a trial. I prepared my own tweezers and a plastic card for the adhesive. (Put a drop of adhesive on it). I used the video below as a tutorial guide. It was wonderful help!
The whole procedure was not really hard and not much hassle. Just about 10-12 individual lashes for each eye should be enough. See below! A natural looking 10mm lashes (about 10 individual lashes).
The adhesive and lashes are durable to last up to 4-6 weeks. Though they are waterproof, adhesive weakens if in contact with oily substances. It is normal if your lashes come off after a while as lashes shed every 2 to 6 weeks (found it somewhere on the web). Practice makes perfect; you may need to try a few times to get used to it.
Now, say bye to my mascara. I never knew doing eyelash extension could be easy.
PS: I’m so vain!
