My lashes are now sparse and fragile. Thankfully I still have eyelashes. Looking online I see images of women who literally have none. I have tried volumizing, lengthening, curling, and every other mascara imaginable and spent lots of $$ doing it. I have found some good ones but my lashes still lack the volume and thickness I once had. I am so tired of skimpy, spidery looking lashes. I bought the Shu Uemura eyelash curler, it's supposed to be the best, to add some curl to my lashes. It takes a bit of practice to get the hang of it. I have pinched my eyelids, it hurts A LOT!!! I have pulled a few precious eyelashes out, that sucks!!! Now that I have figured out this medieval torture device I have a bit of curl to my lashes. Unfortunately it doesn't last, even with mascara. I read an article which suggested you heat your eyelash curler with a hair dryer. It did caution about making the curler too hot. An eyelid burn later and I gave up on that. What to do?
I looked into eyelash extensions. This I thought could be the answer. It's expensive, $250 for a full set and $50 for fills, but according to the ads should last about 4-6 weeks. I watched a demo and realized this was not for me. Even though the technicians are fully trained I'm not sure I want tweezers that close to my eyes.
I'll update my results as we go along. Sadly, I didn't take a before picture but I know my lashes and it's working.
