I love reading emails from people who want to make extended comments or ask questions. Day four of All About Beauty Week is focused on a reader question: “Do you wear lashes?”. I actually received this question via email from 6 ladies in two days. This is an indication that many women are considering wearing lashes and could be interested in the response, so I thought I would address it publicly on the blog.
At this time I do not wear lashes but I fake it really well with great mascara. I have thought about investing in lash extensions but I am not too keen on anyone messing around my eyes so I have not done more than general research on best places to go and costs involved.
Lash extensions are not a cheap, fashion trend but they do offer a more dramatic look. Lash extension application and up keep is a financial investment in your beauty…to put it nicely…and as I would tell any woman, if you can not afford to keep it up, don’t do it. False lashes are a more flexible and can be removed/reapplied daily…like Lee Press On style but for the eyes. M.A.C. has a great line of false lashes at about $15 each pair and in “The Beauty Buzz…NO MORE BEAUTY B.S.!” by Victoria Snee, she recommends the Shu Uemura line of false lashes. They run about $13 and up.
If you are still unsure about someone messing around your eyes, fear the glue used to apply false lashes or if you are simply looking to follow a trend, stick with a good mascara like M.A.C. False Lashes or Benefit BADgirl Lash. They are each $19 and offer a super, powerful looking pair of eyes! For those who want to know, I wear M.A.C. Studio Fix Lash. A couple of coats of this non clumping mascara makes my eyes POP!
