You know that stomach-churning moment when blinking becomes the enemy and your mascara gets all over your eyes? It’s an “ugh moment” that women shouldn’t have to endure on a daily basis, let alone on their wedding day. If you’re looking to avoid such a mishap at the altar, eyelash extensions may be your savior.
Nichole Bonollo of Glam Lashes by Nichole says extensions can make your lashes fuller and thicker. Bonollo is certified by Lavish Lashes, which is one of the top lash companies in the world. Once they are applied, the lashes last for four to six weeks and are perfect for any event.
Lavish Lashes are weightless and can endure showers, swimming and even the spa (i.e. no more raccoon eyes when wet). Eyelash extensions can also help you avoid messy, dark tears if — no, make that when — you get emotional on the big day. Not only do extensions eliminate mascara’s clumps and flaws, they provide a natural curl to the lashes, which gives your eyes a fresher, more energized look. A full set will run you about $145; fills are priced at $55 and touch-ups are $25. If you’re looking to avoid ugly crying in your pretty white dress, it could be money well spent.
