You might have read about my eyebrow embroidery done at Browtisan. I am still loving my eyebrows after 1.5 months and I have gone for a mandatory (and complimentary) touch up recently and will blog about that soon. Today, I am going to share about my eyelash extensions. This isn’t exactly a sponsored post. I am not required to blog about the eyelashes, but I would because I love, love, love how natural it looks and I am driven to share this with you guys. I have seen how some lash extensions looks horribly wrong and unnatural on others. Everyone should be doing proper lash extensions that makes it look like the real thing. So, here’s a picture of me without my eye extensions. You see, I have a inner eyelid that somewhat retracts my lashes when I open my eyes, making it look like literally bare. I know, so sad right?!

In case you are wondering if I do have any lashes at all, I do! Just that they aren’t very long and they are quite sparse. Here’s how my lashes looks like.

My short lashes can only be seen when I close my eyes.

Browtisan eyelash extensions are done strand by strand – matching 1 strand of lash to 1 strand your actual lash so that it looks the most natural, making it look as if it is real. I don’t really need to dictate how thick the lashes I want it to be, and what curve that I would like to have. The staff at Browtisan usually will choose the ones that they feel looks most natural on me. Because of my inner lids, I need longer lashes, with either a C or D curve so that it would peek out and look more obvious. With all that set, Coco went about taping my lower lashes with a tape (so that it doesn’t get glued with the top lashes in the process), and also taped my eyelid taut so that she can work on the eyelashes.

My lashes are quite sparse, so I was done under an hour. Not that hard a wait! Here’s how it looks like after!

Ah! I finally see eyelashes!

I really love the lashes. They lasted me for 3 weeks, but my own natural lashes are very brittle and I have a tendency to rub my eyes so they didn’t last longer even though I was told they should last about a month. Nonetheless, I really like how big a difference it made in my eyes and absolutely loved it that I went back again as a PAYING customer. Best $98 spent. Some things to note though. Browtisan is all for more natural looking lashes and not so much of the dramatic type, even though you can try asking for it. Not everyone is suited for those as well. Like me, my lashes are already so sparse, so I don’t have enough natural lashes to go dramatic at all. My eyes looked a bit red here because I was constantly trying to open my eyes and snapping pictures the entire time even though I shouldn’t be doing that, but I wanted to share the experience. The glue sting my eyes quite badly, hence the redness and the teary-looking eyes. I didn’t have any issues at all the second time I went back because I didn’t open my eyes or even attempt to take any pictures during the process so take note! Do not try to open your eyes because the glue can be quite strong and stinging. Just close your eyes and fall asleep if you can and wake up to pretty lashes! Browtisan eyelash extensions starts from $98 – $168, depending on the number of strand of eyelashes required. So if you have fuller lashes and requires more work, the price increase accordingly.

Errrm, can you tell that I am somewhat addicted to these lashes already?

Disclaimer: I was given a trial of eyelash extensions by Browtisan along with my eyebrow embroidery but was not required to blog about it. I am sharing this simply because I love how natural it is and I believe all eyelash extensions should look like these instead.
