Â Today I’m taking all about eyelashes!!! I feel like I’ve tried a couple different things, been the guinea pig and now I’m going to share with you what I’ve learned! (I’m not an expert when it comes to any of these! These are just my experiences!)
Latisse- (also available in the generic form bimatoprost) is a prescription treatment to grow eyelashes longer, fuller and darker and it definitely works. My eyelashes grew insanely long, and I used it for a while without complications but developed some pretty serious issues with my eyes (maybe related, maybe not) and decided to stop using it. I’ve had friends have great success with this and I’ve had friends have bad reactions to this so I would caution anyone thinking of trying this to make sure you do your research first. It is a drug so make sure you are educated onÂ the possible side effects before you start using it! 😉 (I’ve also heard good things about RapidLash which you can get without a prescription and can order here!)
Â Eyelash extensions- I looooovvvveeeee eyelash extensions!!! Again, make sure you do your research before seeing someone for this! If they are applied properly you should have no damage to your natural eyelashes. I’ve seen some pretty horrendous looking eyelash extensions and have heard some horror stories so please be careful. When I let my extensions fall off, my natural eyelashes are perfectly long and healthy looking (as they should be if applied correctly!) You can choose the style, curve, and length of the extensions that you like. They look great and save time and energy because a lot of people find it eliminates the need to apply makeup! They do require maintenance though, needing to be filled about every 4-6 weeks! If you’re in the Vancouver area go see my girl Cathy! She gave me the most stunning set! I asked for a more natural look and she delivered! Most people thought I just had long lashes! Check her out on Instagram@ailashco or on Facebook Ailash Co!
Mascara- LastÂ but not least, just good old mascara. I’ll tell you a little secret… If you order from Sephora.com you can get up to 9 free samples with your order! Whhhhatttt??? True story… andÂ a lot of them or decent sized baby mascaras which allows me to try different brands before committing to buying them! Lately I have been OBSESSED with Benefit’s Roller Lash mascara. Honestly, it’s amazing. Looking for a drugstore alternative? L’Oreal Voluminous would be my choice!
