Eyelash extensions have been the rage in the last few years. Extensions can range from $120-200 depending on where you go. But I'm sure being a college student you don't have the luxury to get your lashes professionally done. I recommend you either do them yourself or with a friend. When I first started doing my own eyelash extensions, I had to say I didn't have a great experience when I used the Salon Perfect Lash Starter Kit. Putting them on wasn’t difficult but it was starting to irritate my eye. So I decided to take them off but the remover was really painful. The remover irritated my eye and my skin around it whenever it made contact. Not to mention that I thought the lashes looked super fake, which wasn't really the look I was going for since I would be wearing them on the day to day. I was going to call it quits but I forgot that I purchased a different pair of eyelash extensions from aliexpress. They came in last week and they’re the mink eyelashes. These eyelashes look so bomb. They’re thinner and they definitely look more natural. So I put them in today. I used the eyelash glue that came in with it. So far, I have to say I like it better. It doesn't irritate my skin and they look way more natural.
Here are 5 Reasons why you should consider DIY Eyelash Extensions
THEY ARE AFFORDABLE.
Let's be honest. We all can't be the Kardashians and live in wealth. To be more cost effective we need to cut corners. Dye our own hair, shop at thrift stores and yes, do our own eyelash extensions.
THEY LAST A LONG TIME.
Do you ever wear your falsies and feel like a princess, only to have the clock strike twelve and you take them off to turn back into Cinderella? Well, with eyelash extensions these can last anywhere from 2-4 WEEKS. You can be a princess all night long baby.
THEY LOOK MORE NATURAL.
I know it's weird wearing falsies in the daytime. Everyone can tell they are fake but with these gorgeous set, no one will ever be the wiser. You can have your cake and eat it too.
YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL EVEN WITHOUT MAKE UP ON.
I'm sure you all look beautiful without make up on but it is definitely a nice touch waking up with longer lashes already attached to you.
OPPORTUNITY TO DO IT WITH YOUR GIRLS.
PPeony is all about friendship and sisterhood. We understand that it is somewhat difficult to put on eyelashes alone but if you got your girls, it's a walk in the park. It’s a great ‘girls night in’ activity and you can add spa features, like a mask before the lash procedure and have cucumber/lemon water to make it extra fancy.
Looking to try DIY Eyelash Extensions? Good luck girls! It's a little bit of work but it's all worth it and I'm sure you'll become an addict.
