It’s not a secret that I’m a very emotional person! And in the weeks before my wedding, I worried about whether my waterproof mascara would be able to handle the impending flood of happy tears that awaited me as I married my best friend! When my amazing wedding planner, Charlotte Jarrett, recommended getting eyelash extensions and forgoing mascara altogether for the big day- I absolutely loved the idea!
Fran at Morgan Gerard fit me in the week of the wedding for a full eye-lash makeover and I can honestly say it was one of the best beauty decisions I made for the wedding day! She was so sweet and helped me to achieve a natural glam look that I absolutely loved!
Eyelash Extensions are single strands of synthetic lashes that are applied on to your own natural lashes. Each synthetic strand is tapered at the tip with a thick base and a curl designed to replicate the shape of your natural lash. The lashes are attached individually to achieve a realistic and dynamic appearance.
I’m not a big makeup person. My daily routine involves a little BB Cream and mascara, so my biggest fear was having my lashes look too extreme or fake in some way. What’s great about lash extensions is that by design – they can me applied to be as natural or glamourous as you like! Lash extensions come in a variety of lengths, curls, and widths!
Fran’s Tips: Are Xtreme Lashes Eyelash Extensions right for you? “As long as you have healthy eyes, you do not have sensitivities to acrylate adhesives and you are comfortable lying down for a few hours with your eyes closed then you are good to go! After the application let the extensions dry completely for 48 hours (no water, heat, saunas, steam or friction). After that time period you can feel free to get them wet and even go swimming! The best thing about the extensions if you can get them as natural or as glam as you would like. There are different curvatures and lengths that make it easy for me to give you the best look for your specific eye shape.”
The week of my wedding, we had quite a few events of celebration – a mini Bachelorette, a rehearsal dinner, the wedding itself, and a beach vacation that followed. Having eyelash extensions meant looking and feeling beautiful without the need for makeup throughout the entire wedding weekend! They last up to three or four weeks after having them done and I have loved every single second!
I want to say thank you to Fran at Morgan Gerard – She is amazing and I highly recommend her to Maryland Brides looking for professional eyelash extensions!
