In our current day and age, there are near limitless beauty treatments we can undergo to help us become our best selves. Many of these treatments are either permanent or semi-permanent, meaning that they last for a prolonged period of time. While this is great for many people in certain situations, there are also times that we just want a temporary alteration to our everyday look—or that is at least very much the case for me.
I have seen friends get lash lifts, tints, extensions, fills, and almost every other lash procedure under the sun. The truth is, they look absolutely stunning every time. They looked stunning before the treatments too, but something about eyelashes that go for miles really helps amplify your best features.
While my friends were ranting and raving about these fantastic and trendy processes, I could not help but feel like I wasn’t quite ready to take the plunge.
For years I have been a tried and true fake lash fiend. I just love the customization and flexibility they always afford me, which are things that could be lacking somewhat in longer-term options for lash enhancement. I can decide that night if I want to have an elegant lash moment, a dramatic and stunning look, or if I just want to go au naturel. By “au naturel,” I generally still mean with mascara and my lashes thoroughly curled, but nobody’s perfect.
I was overjoyed to find that I can achieve very similar results to these lash enhancement treatments with my reliable fake lashes. While other people may not enjoy having to take their lashes off at the end of the night rather than simply going to sleep and waking up with them still being perfect, it has never bothered me.
Ever since I discovered the level of personalization possible with fake eyelashes, I’ve been a believer.
