I Got Eyelash Extensions!

IMG_8297_2 IMG_8275_2 IMG_8274_2 IMG_8289_2 IMG_8286_2 IMG_8299_2_Fotor_Collage_FotorEvery girl wants to have eyelashes like a Disney princess does. I’m sure most of you can agree that not all of us were born with long, voluminous lashes. It’s a struggle almost every morning to coat layers and layers of mascara. Mascara promises you that you’re lashes will reach a pristine level of lash domination. They all promise that you’re lashes will be pump, extreme, and amplified times ten. I’ve tried them all and have been left hopeless and nearly lash-less. It’s extremely damaging to your eyelashes to remove those loads and loads of mascara that we just spent forever putting on but it’s also very damaging to use an eyelash curler. I feel like I’ve used every technique in the book to achieve longer, shinier, and fuller lashes. I’ve even tried heating my eyelash curler with a blow dryer before hand and it didn’t turn out pretty. While I was doing my research on “lash success” I found out that strip lashes are SO BAD! The adhesive glue used to stick the strip lash onto your natural lash is one of the worst things you can do to your eye area. Most people come to find out that they’re actually allergic to the glue and one of the many side effects is blindness…. BLINDNESS! No thank you.

Maybe it’s Maybelline, maybe it’s just not.

The option of eyelash extensions has just been recently introduced to me. I didn’t understand the magnitude at which this trend was growing and how many companies were starting to offer eyelash extensions. It’s a beauty craze at the moment and I honestly see this trend lasting forever…or at least until they come up with something better. (I doubt that.)

I had so many questions: How long do they last? How much does it cost? Where do you find the best esthetician ? Is it worth it? It’s when I reached out to Oxana Hull from Mile High Lashes in Denver, CO that all my questions were answered. I had done my research on Mile High Lashes before hand because I wanted to make sure that I was going somewhere where they not only took good care of my eyelashes but also took care of me. I wanted an esthetician that knew what she/he was doing and more. All the reviews I read on the internet were nothing but 5 stars. Before I had ever considered getting lash extensions, I had gotten a few recommendations from 3 or 4 ladies that  said they absolutely loved Oxana and they loved their new lashes. I 100% agree with them.

IMG_1812-3Oxana, with her friendly attitude and amazing skin, was so easy to talk to. She really welcomes you with open arms. The first time I saw her to get my “Natural” set of lashes, we talked the entire time. The second time around for a more dramatic lash, she let me rest a little because I woke up really early that morning. She’s so incredibly kind and talented I really wouldn’t trust anyone else with my lashes. Oxana also keeps her station in tip-top shape inside her humble yet bold room where eyelashes come alive! I will continue to get refills from her and no one else.

I mean it ladies. Eyelash extensions is something you have to try once. If it’s not for you, they can be easily removed, pain free. But once you see how dramatic the difference is and how confident and feminine you feel… you won’t turn back! I don’t see the need to wear makeup anymore because my new lashes lift my face and give me such a glow. To make the decision easier for you on whether or not you want to try lash extensions, if you say that I sent you, you get 25% off your visit at Mile High Lashes!

Mascara is SO yesterday.

With love,

Lash extensions last through a full growth cycle of natural eyelashes, typically six to eight weeks.

  1. Hi Karissa!

    Do you know if the extensions affect your natural lashes in any way? I’m afraid of pulling out what little eyelashes I have now but have been interested in getting extensions for a while now. Also, how do the lashes hold up in terms of showers/washing my face/removing eye makeup? Thank you! You look fab!

    • You’re beauty routine will change. If you want your lashes to last as long as possible it’s best to not get them wet or to even touch around that area. Based on experience, stay away from any product that has oil in it. A q-Tip with oil-free lotion is the best way in removing makeup around that area. As for showers, again, don’t submerg them in water or face the shower head. Also stay away from steam because the glue will seperate. It sounds complicated but it’s really simple, don’t bother them. 🙂 My extensions have not damaged my natural lashes in any way. Good luck! I totally recommend trying them!

  2. Thanks soooo much for the reply! I’m a temporary Denverite as well so this is super exciting to know that Oxana is right in the city! My friend and I are looking forward to trying out lash extensions😄. Love your blog!!

  3. Your eyelashes look lovely. I used always get extensions but because i always wore mascara on top they used to always come out when i removed my make up and ended up taking my own eyelashes out and i have double barrel eyelashes so the lady who did it for me couldn’t understand why i would want it in the first place. but they are great if you don’t have eyelashes. lovely post. xoxo
