The truth about eyelash extensions
"Your lashes are so long!" That's what everyone wants to hear, right? Lush, long lashes are one of the most desired traits and are difficult to come by naturally. When someone compliments my lashes, I exclaim, "Oh, they're extensions! I can send you to my lash place if you want!" It's true: I am an eyelash extension addict.
Now, I'll admit, I was blessed with naturally long lashes. You should see my dad's, they're insane. But I'm not a morning person and I hate taking too much time to get ready. I also have oily skin, and while I know tricks to stop mascara from running under my eyes, sometimes it's unavoidable. I don't particularly love wearing a lot of eye makeup either, so lash extensions are my saving grace.
I've been wearing lash extensions for years, worked at a salon that did them, and my best friend, Meredith Borodina of Lash L'Amour in Boston, is a master lash specialist. So if you're looking for information on eyelash extensions, you've come to the right place.
