How To Get Amazing Lashes

A few months ago I did a quick makeup tutorial of my everyday makeup look on Facebook Live. I got a lot of questions about the products I used but the one question y’all asked the most was how I got amazing lashes. Well, that’s easy! They’re extensions! I’ve been wearing lashes for so long, I almost don’t think of them as a “beauty product”! But since so many people were curious about them I decided to do a quick little Q&A about my lashes and why I love them so much!

How long have you worn lashes?

I’ve been wearing lash extensions since 2012. They are a true non-negotiable for me, and one of the biggest beauty “secrets”. It cuts down on my makeup routine and even when I’m not wearing makeup, I still look like my eyes are “done”.

Where do you get your lashes done?

I get my lashes done at Amazing Lash Studio.  There have several locations throughout the Metroplex and it’s a reputable studio. All of their stylists are highly trained and they have a patented lash application process so I don’t have to worry about something happening to my lashes or my eyes.

What made you try lash extensions?

I worked at a spa right out of college and they did lashes. My boss used me as her guinea pig and I have been hooked ever since!

How long do they last?

I get fills about every 2 weeks, but I like mine super full. Some people are able to wait 3 weeks but I think 2-3 weeks is the average.

What kind do you get?

There are a few different styles depending on if you’re looking for something more natural or more glam. Your stylist can help you decide which look works best for you. Personally, I like the glamorous look the best!

Does it hurt?

It does not hurt at all and is actually super relaxing. Most of the time I fall asleep, if I’m not talking Erin’s ear off!

Does it damage your natural lashes?

I’ve heard people say they’re worried about damaging their natural lashes and after 5 years of extensions, I can say that it doesn’t at all. I’ve taken little breaks here and there and my lashes are back to normal every time. Just make sure you go to a reputable stylist!

Can you wear mascara?

You can, but I don’t recommend it. If you really need that extra oomph, you can use a water-based mascara (Amazing Lash actually sells one), but the point of the lashes is not to have to use an eyelash curler and mascara!

How do you wash your face/remove your eye makeup?

You can wash your face like you normally do, just be “dainty” when washing around your eyes. And no “baby rubbing” your eyes, like babies do! Just be gentle and you’ll be fine.

Can you go swimming?

Absolutely! You do want to wait 48 hours after having them applied so the adhesive can completely dry. After that, you’re good to go!

Any advice?
