I’m so excited to be sharing my experience with eyelash extensions today! I’ve collaborated with my long time hairstylist, Monique from True Beauty Brandon, to share what I think of this huge trend.
When I first saw that eyelash extensions were becoming a “thing” I thought it was super over-the-top and high maintenance. I had only see bloggers & instagram models donning them. Plus, every time I looked into it I found absolutely outrageous prices (upwards of $150). BUT my opinion changed when a few of my friends got them. The funny thing was that these were not friends who wear a lot of makeup or obsess over how they look, they are normal, everyday girls who just wanted to simply their makeup routine. That’s when my perspective changed.
Seriously, the only thing I added from the first picture to the second picture was the eyelashes & some lipstick. What the heck!? I have no additional eye makeup or anything! I really didn’t think they were going to make that much of a difference, but DANG! I have absolutely no eye makeup on in any of the pictures below!
And the best part is, my girl only charges $75 for the initial set & $35 per fill. I’m still waiting to see how long I can go in between fills, because I’ve only had mine for a couple of days (I will keep you guys updated on that), but she said I should be able to go 3-4 weeks between fills. But wait, there’s more! When you book your appointment to get your eyelashes done (because, duh!) put the code “shauna10” in the comment section to receive $10 off your initial set!
Monique is overall just an amazing person & I’ve trusted her with my hair for the past 10+ years! She also did wedding makeup for me, my two sisters, & my sister-in-law! She does amazing work & truly listens to her customer. Her shop is located in Brandon, FL, so if you live in the Tampa, Valrico, Riverview, etc. area she’s not too far from you!
