Flapping My Way Through Life With The Help of Eyelash Extensions.
“One day, the caterpillar stops eating, hangs upside down from a twig or leaf and spins itself a silky cocoon or molts into a shiny chrysalis. Within its protective casing, the caterpillar radically transforms its body, eventually emerging as a butterfly or moth.”- Thanks, Google.
Oh look, another butterfly story!
One day Michelle stops eating so she can pay for a full set of mink eyelash extensions. They were so luxurious and silky, she was a butterfly in a world full of moths. But as time went on (two weeks) the new butterfly realized as lashes where leaving her set, shiny chrysalis looking glue balls were falling into her eye balls making her go completely blind for about 15 minutes. The End.
As you already know I’m a blondie with non-existent eyebrows and lashes. I get them both tinted about every 1-2 months and never had a problem with that. A while back I decided to try full lash extensions. When done correctly they are absolutely gorgeous. I loved having them during the summer months because the less makeup on me during that time the better! A nice pop of lash was really helpful in my daily makeup regime.
I’ve been getting them done for the passed 4 years. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, but get the castor oil ready because you’re going to need it.
I don’t care what any tech tells you, just like getting a gel manicure, yes, its better for you than a full acrylic set but give your nails a break once in a while or you’ll be left with mush. Same with eyelashes. Get them on, like Tony says, “They’re great!” But make sure you take them off or you’ll be left with nothing. I guess I’m crazy because I kept going back for more, but I don’t know, after this time I really tried to pay attention to what was going on on my lids.
I noticed that my upper lash line was super dry, like dandruff was christening my under eye area. The dried glue that was attached to my lash would crisp off and blind me and lashes would fall into my eyes stabbing me, which was worse than the blind bit.
Of course I get a fill right before vacation, which, naturally, fell out 3 days in. Looking at myself, my eyelashes weren’t “blonde gone”, they were gone gone.
The little that I was left with were so tiny I was afraid to curl them or even put anything on except some castor oil to help them grow.
Lucky for me, I pulled my head out of my ass and didn’t get fill-ins after vacation. Now, 2 months lash free I’m almost back to BL times (before lash).
I’m back to individuals and strip lashes and the fabulous *eye roll* smell of Duo Glue and I couldn’t be happier.
