I want lashes like Navy’s! They are so long and full. Oh to be a babe. Today I wanted to share all the info about my lashes, pros and cons. As you know I love a good, long lasting beauty hack or treatment. Just like getting my nail polish to last for more than a week. It’s these little things in life (and now as a mom) that make things run just a little smoother.
First thing to note, I’ve been getting my lashes done since March, 2014. They’ve been on without a break in between. So when people ask if they should take a break, the answer is “no”. You don’t have to.
- No need to buy mascara
- Extra volume
- Make up look without the make up
- No daily applying
- Beauty routine is cut down
- Customize them to your liking
- Keeping up with the costs
- Scheduling appointments often
- May have allergies
- Can’t mess with lashes or they could fall out
How often do I get my eyelashes done?
When I first started out I was able to go once a month. Now my addiction has e going every 2 weeks.
Where do I get my lashes done?
I currently use Healen. You can too schedule a time with her- (832) 690-1053
How much does do I pay?
It’s $45 + tip. Don’t forget to tip! I leave an extra $5.
Does it damage your eyelashes?
This is a tricky question. If you go to a reputable place, no. If you go to your sisters, best friend’s, neighbor’s garage to get them done, yes.
How does someone get over being scared?
It goes with anything. You have to try to see. Again, go to a place you trust or by referral. Look, if you don’t like it, there’s a process you can take to get them removed. But if you don’t try, you will never know.
How do I get my lashes to last?
First off, you wait to wash your lashes for 24 hours, minimal. I will tend to get mine done, wear very little to no makeup and then was them closer to 48 hours.
Do I use a growth serum?
No, I have naturally long lashes. They are just really light.
Do they pull out your natural lashes?
It drives me crazy when people say they loose lashes and when they take them off they are all gone. What you don’t realize is that you get use to seeing them on within days. Even that soon, if you were to take them off you’d feel naked and that they were all gone. They aren’t. Of course that’s if you are going to a reputable place. I can’t vouch for a sketchy place.
And to answer the question, you naturally lose eyelashes everyday. If you pull or tug on the lashes then yes, you will pull out your own. Don’t do that. If you feel like they are bothering you…call your salon and asked them to adjust them.
Do they hurt?
They shouldn’t. I’ve asked Healen (my gal) about this and she says they weren’t put on correctly if they hurt.
How do I wash them?
Dial is your best friend. It’s recommended that you wait 24 hours to wash them but if you can wait longer, that’s best.
Gently put a pump on your fingers and swipe them out. Don’t pull on them or you’ll get soap in your eyes. Rinse gently with water only. No wash cloth or q-tips needed.
Can you wear makeup with them?
Yes, of course.
What style do I get?
I change up my eyelashes style, often. It depends on what I have going on. I get longest on the outside then go down one size in the center and then one more size down on the inner part. So, either 13, 12, 11 or 12, 11, 10. For my wedding and for TV appearances I do 14, 13, 12. Those tend to fall out faster because they are obviously heavier.
Is it worth the $$?
1,000% YES! Obviously, since I’ve been getting mine done since 2014.
