Eyelash Extensions – Should You or Shouldn’t You?

  • I hate touching my eyes. That is why I never use contact lenses. I just get super paranoid. So defo not for me 🙂 But you look amazing!

    • haha I’m cracking up Aleksandra because I’m the exact same way and when I went in the first time it took us f o r e v e r to get my bottom lashes taped down as I kept blink/closing my eyes every time she got my eyes! Luckily I get to keep my eyes closed when they put the lashes on 🙂

  • Really like your thoughts on this Kelsey, I agree with focusing on skin and brows too! I got extensions for my wedding because I have next to no lashes and I didn’t want to wear falsies. They look stunning and I’m so pleased I got them done. The up keep afterwards was a little annoying though, I didn’t like not being able to wash my face and eyes properly! When the extensions feel out eventually they left my naturally lashes super sparse, so it took ages for them to grow back! I probably would invest in a lash thickening serum for now 🙂

    • I think getting them done for your wedding is the absolute best time to get them! And yeah I think I’m getting to the annoying upkeep part as I’m wanting to either try microblading or get my hair rehighlighted LOL basically I’m just wanting other things besides pretty eyelashes!

      Do you have a serum that you love?? I was looking at getting one once I’m done!

      • I’ve used the Talika Lipocils Eyelash Growth Gel before and its worked well!

  • I’m very curious to try lash extensions but I’m always rubbing my eyes and doing all the things that you’re not supposed to do haha. Although, the thing that I definitely need to give a go is getting them curled “permanently”. x

    • I won’t lie they were super hard habits to break! haha But I feel like I wouldn’t need these at all if you were around to do my makeup 😉 I always love seeing your makeup looks and trying my own very measly attempts! xo

  • I will take any and all eyelash dedication I can get! So glad I could pressure you into yet another thing we really, really (don’t) need to spend our money on 🙂 I loved your pros and cons and definitely agree. I think it’s got to be your top priority or the time and money just catches up with you…. that being said I get mine filled on Wednesday and cannot wait!

    • BUT you look soooooo amazing with them! I just think you need to give me a touch of your gorgeous brows and then I would be team eyelash extensions all the way 😉

  • I’ve thought about lash extensions before, but I just can’t do the price. I think I’d splurge before a big event though! They look amazing!

    • I hear that Jenn! It’s really the price that has me saying “nope.” It’s just too much with everything else I like to do! xo

  • I love your honest review on this particular popular trend – everyone always raves about them, but you never hear the complete honest truth (I feel). I would love to get eyelash extensions, but, as you say, they are quite expensive. I also feel like they would make me more self conscious – I would feel like I need them to feel pretty with no makeup on, if that makes sense! Definitely a great idea for getting married or going on holiday/travelling though 🙂 xo
    P.S. They also look great on you!

  • I absolutely love the way eyelash extensions look! However, I use a lot of oil based products, which would ruin the glue 🙁 It’s definitely something I would love to try out at least once! Maybe I’ll wait for a special occasion 🙂

  • I’ve only ever done non-permeant eye lash extensions (the ones you apply yourself). I actually just started using Lash Boost instead of Lash Extensions. It is a serum you apply to eye lashes each evening and it conditions your eyelashes resulting in longer fuller lashes. I’ve got a review with before and after’s planned for my blog shortly!

    These look amazing, your eyelashes look so full! I’ve always wanted to try lash extensions, I’ve just been worried about the maintenance since it does take time to adjust. Glad to hear you love them, they really compliment you!

    Sending light & love your way,
