I taught myself how to do my own eye lash extensions before my wedding about 6 years ago. I wanted to do something special for my wedding day in case I couldn’t find a makeup artist. Since then I’ve pretty much been hooked. It only takes me about 15 minutes to apply and if I do say so myself, my lashes look super natural. In fact, my lashes make all the difference for any effortless makeup look. See my before and after results below…
This lash tutorial has been by far the most highly requested tutorial but truth be told I’ve been reluctant to share. Eye lash extensions do come with some potential negative side effects.
Potential Side Effects of Lash Extensions
As beautiful as they are, eye lash extensions can cause your real eye lashes to fall out. If you decide to apply eye lash extensions, be sure not to wear them too often or for prolonged periods. Also, some people are allergic to the eye lash glue so be sure to test on a small area before fully applying. In fact, my bff is super allergic to eye lash glue and even after removing the eye lashes as soon as the first allergic symptoms appeared, it took weeks for the itchiness and eye swelling to go away. Be sure to take proper caution and if you have sensitive eyes don’t bother trying or consult your eye doctor for recommendations.
Now I know I’m sending mixed signals here. While I love my eye lash extensions and have never personally experienced any problems, I want to make sure you are aware of the potential side effects that I’ve seen or heard that others experience.
With that said, I’d love to hear if you give this lash tutorial a try. Please show some love in the comments below!
