When our lashes are not naturally thick or long, we can fake it. Adding lashes can give a more youthful, feminine, or glamazon look. Your choice achieve your look with traditional, temporary false lashes or semi-permanent lash extensions.

The choices are endless with false eyelashes. Try them on and experiment—they’re temporary! When you find your fave, you can clean them after use and reuse. Just soak in oil-free eye makeup remover.

Tweezer or lash applicator.

For longer wear, try semi-permanent lash extensions. My favorite method involves attaching the extensions to your natural lashes. When your lash sheds, so will the extension. A full set takes about an hour and half to apply. They will last four to six weeks with touch ups, and you can swim, shower, and sweat in them!

Choose from synthetic, silk, or mink lashes, ranging in size from 6mm to 17mm.
