I was born without a lot of body hair. I truly feel fortunate I am one of the numbers of who have gotten away with not obtaining to wax nor shave my legs EVER. On the downside, my eyebrows are thin and my eyelashes short, light and sparse like my eyebrows.
I don’t put on mascara. I discovered my lashes falling off along with mascara when it was time to clean off.
On my sister’s prodding, I made the decision to consider lash extensions. I’ve viewed other girls…. Oh, to have these extended butterfly eyelashes!
The eyelash extensions came in 3 various lengths: Lengthy, medium and organic. Simply because my own eyelashes are short to commence with, I went for the organic length. The entire method was long and tedious. Every person eyelash extension had to be glued to my own and I had to keep my eyelids closed the whole time, attempting my very best not to move them, as any movement brought on the just-glued-but-not-pretty-set eyelash to come to be crooked. As far as any pain or discomfort, there was none, except for the smell of the glue, which wasn’t as well terrible. I was fidgety the total time and I could not include my anticipation. Following forty 5 minutes, which seemed extra like two hrs to me, the eyelash extension method was performed. I looked in the mirror…OMG. Individuals are not my eyes! They are too sexy, too tantalizing! (OMG once more!) I had to search extended and tricky in the mirror. I had prolonged eyelashes! Not only that, but I looked like I had eyeliner on, as well. My sister and I giggled and giggled like two teenagers. I walked out of that salon very happily. I didn’t even take a single appearance at the leaflet that was handed to me, the “How To Care For” guidelines of my new deliciously lush prolific eyelashes.
My eyelids felt heavier. Why, of course. I quickly found that fluttering longer lashes essential obtaining made use of to. That night, when it was time to clean my encounter, I also realized two important things on reading my “Eyelash Extension Owner’s Manual”:
Rule #one. Steer clear of (or at least consider to keep away from) obtaining your eyelash extensions wet. Water and friction shortens their daily life span. (In theory, your eyelash extensions are supposed to last forty days, then maintenance to repair the couple of lashes that have fallen off.) I did my ideal to clean around my eyes with makeup remover. I soon realized that this entire enterprise of not acquiring them wet was extremely unrealistic. In the finish, wet them I did. I could not get around it.
Rule #two. No rubbing your new eyelashes. This 1 was tougher. I was a perpetual offender. I couldn’t aid it. My eyelids itch, I rub. Longer eyelashes, far more rubbing.
Oh well, they are not supposed to final. If they come off, they come off. In all, my eyelash extensions which were supposed to last more than 5 weeks lasted me three weeks. In the course of that time, as the eyelash extensions steadily came unglued, I had at times wished that I had taken care of them superior. I wished I hadn’t rubbed or gotten them wet so a lot. But for the duration of other times, when they produced my eyelids itch, I could not wait for all the eyelash extensions to come off that I pulled and unglued them prematurely.
Would I do it yet again? Possibly not. Despite the fact that I was happy with my eyelash extensions through the 1st two weeks, the week or so that followed following that was rather awkward as half of them had already come unglued. I would like it to developing out a bad haircut. I am also a fussy person and I could not maintain from rubbing my eyes.
This is not to say that I have provided up my quest for extended alluring eyelashes. I do have my eyes on LATISSE, that prescription eyelash therapy that is supposed to develop them naturally thicker and longer. And then there is TALIKA and a further similar solution from Peter Thomas Roth that get the job done considerably like Latisse except that they can be bought without prescription. I never give up. Onward with the superior battle for BEAUTY!!
