In the spirit of beauty and all the things I was learning from social media, I decided to get eyelash extensions. I am not talking about the ones you get stuck on when trying to slay with your Aso Ebi at that society wedding. I am talking Silk Lash Extensions, natural looking (Kardashian-esque), individually attached which last at least three weeks before you need refills.
Honestly, they are beautiful. I still have the eyelashes on as I type this and I get at least one compliment a day.
Here is what I wish someone had told me before I got them;
Do a Patch Test
This is the most important thing. You should try out the lashes before you get the full installation. I was thinking Nothing dey kill black man and it turned out the glue was too strong for me, and I had bloodshot eyes for two days. Some people have allergic reactions to the lashes or the glue. If you do a patch test the technician can try a different brand that would be less intrusive
Talk to your Stylist
If you go to a he/she would be able to pick the best style of lashes to suit your features. it is best to state your preference so you don’t end up with lashes too full or too long to be taken seriously at work
It takes about three hours to get silk lash extensions fitted in
The lashes are attached to each single to give a natural look. You cannot count your but it turns out your technician can and will
You get addicted
I used to think, ‘Who has time to be doing this all the time?’ Err It turns out I do. After seeing yourself as a diva for weeks, It is hard to go back.
Let me know If you get them.
