One fine Sunday afternoon, I have made up my mind to try “eyelash extension” for the first time in my life!!
Well, if you ask me why, I would say because I wanna glam up my sleep-deprived eyes and also shorten time to make up every morning… With the a big baby belly now, I think I have the perfect excuse to do whatever I want
Not too bad right? Hehe…
As this is my first time, I had so much questions on my mind! The beautician carefully explained the procedure and went through different styles with me and after a brief consultation, she placed me on a comfortable bed and getting started to do what she called a “3D Korean eyelash extension“<— sounds cool right?
First of all, my eye make up was removed and a tape was placed at the lower eye lid to prevent the lower eyelashes from being glued~
And then a combo of thick and thin lashes was individually glued on my real lashes. The glue made my eyes feel uncomfortable for a while and as soon as it’s dried up, the tingling sensation vanished.
So, here’s a glance of how it looks like!!
(My real lashes on the right look so pathetically short…)
The whole session lasted for about 45 minutes and when the beautician handed me a mirror to check on the results, I was like… Wow~
It reminds me of my flamboyant lashes I wore in Vegas! (So fake…) I reckon I should put on something less dramatic next time…
What do you think? It certainly does make my eyes appear bigger though…
However, before considering getting yourself one (which I think every girl should at least try once), here’s the down side of it:
- You basically can’t wear glasses cos’ your eyelash extension tends to press on the glass and it looks so funny~
- You can’t rub your eyes, it irritates your eyes and you might accidentally pull a few off together with your real lashes (“o)
- You can’t wet your eyelash extension, yes, cannot wet them!
- You can’t let moisture-rich products to get into the fake lashes. Shampoo, conditioner, heavy creams or anything oil based will eventually loosen the bond.
Well, then you might ask, how to clean the face if can’t get it wet?? I struggle with this too! I remembered the first night I was attempting to used a cotton bud with some makeup removal oil to remove my eye makeup on the upper eye lid and it didn’t work! I then use a cotton with some water to clean it and the cotton strands caught in the lashes and at the end of the “makeup removal” session, my lashes looked like a complete mess and it irritated my eyes too!
Then the second day, I came up with a brilliant idea!
Makeup Removal Wet Tissue!!!
Then I thought, how come I never thought of it at the first place? I got this Biore makeup removal tissues from Guardian. It’s so convenient! I just pull a sheet out from the bag and wipe my upper eyelid and lower eyelid (if I apply lower eye liner that day) and it’s cleaned!
It may sound troublesome and high maintenance, but with this new lash extension on, I basically do not need any eye makeup on! It saves me a lot of time everyday drawing eye lines and putting on eye shadow.
Now I wake up beautifully everyday~ (Okay, I am so vain…)
Well now you know what you will be getting into Anyone of you thinking of getting eyelash extensions? Or you have already done that? Share with me about your experience!
