I ran across this article on an interview with Courtenay Akai today and finally found something I can pass along as excellent information. Thank-you, Cosmopolitan! There are many great points made – I have quoted a few for you, but you should really check out the entire article! Full article here.
About why not everyone can have the longest, thickest lashes like a Kardashian:
“The type of lashes you can get all depends on the length and strength of your natural lashes,” says Ciulei. “Wearing lashes that are too long or too thick for your lashes can actually cause damage in the long run, so you need to make your sure your extensions aren’t too much longer or thicker than your natural lashes.”
And how lash extensions can make wearing eye makeup pretty much unnecessary:
I’ve never worn a ton of makeup during the day, but I stopped wearing eye makeup altogether the day after my wedding. I still felt selfie-ready every second of my honeymoon, and still feel pretty stellar whether I’ve just rolled out of bed or gotten back from a run. And, TBH, feeling just a bit more put-together during my early morning, barefaced gym sessions is a major perk, too.
