Eyelash Extensions

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about my eyelashes. That’s because for the last couple months, I’ve been rocking eyelash extensions! The idea was that they’d be a great thing to have during the last couple months of my pregnancy, since we didn’t really know when the babe would actually come. And this way even if he came in the middle of the night, I’d have something that made me feel mildly presentable. Turns out none of that ended up being necessary (baby was a week late and I was induced!), but I sure have enjoyed my eyelash extensions all the same!

The truth is, I had my skepticisms about getting them at all. Would they make my real eyelashes fall out? Would they weigh my eyes down? Would they itch or get infected or just be wildly annoying? Would they even look good? Would I get attached to them and then feel like I wasn’t cute without them? LOTS of concerns – cuz I’m a freak like that.

In case you’ve wondered about eyelash extensions yourself and/or had any of the same questions, I wanted to share my experience with you! I’ve pulled in the master-mind who did my eyelash extensions to answer some FAQ’s and do some myth busting.
