Pros and Cons of Eyelash Extensions

Pros:

  • Cuts way down on getting ready time.
  • Pretty much always look wide awake and refreshed.
  • No pesky eyelash glue mishaps (I have them quite often).

Neutral:

  • Washing your face much differently.
  • Sleeping more carefully, so not to squish your new lashes into the pillow.

Cons:

  • Unable to use liquid eyeliner.
  • Slightly pricier than faux lashes (but not much – range from $25-$60 for approx. 2-3 weeks).
  • Commitment to same eyelash design for a two week period (for those of you who like to change it up).

Overall, I would highly recommend trying them out for yourselves. I will definitely be getting them again.

Thanks for reading! 🙂

DIY False Eyelash Cleaning


The bane of my existence… cleaning my eyelashes! But I have discovered a new method that makes this whole process less tedious.

What you’ll need:

  • Your used false lashes 
  • Rubbing alcohol (I use 70%)
  • A small dish or bowl 
  • Original eyelash tray that your lashes came in

The process:

  • First place your lashes into a small bowl/dish.
  • Next, pour rubbing alcohol into the bowl/dish until your lashes are completely submerged.
  • Leave them soaking for a few moments.
  • Next, gently remove mascara and glue with your fingers.
  • Once clean, place the eyelashes back in their original tray to maintain their shape.
  • That’s it!

Happy cleaning!! 🙂
