My Love-Hate Relationship with Eyelash Extensions and What I've Learnt So Far!

I started getting eyelash extensions since 3 months ago and was going to a clinic almost every two week to get refills after I got my full set of cat eye lashes for the first time. The first time I got the lashes, they looked quite thick and really bothered my eyes. I wear contacts, so it made my eyes even more uncomfortable. After 4 refill sessions, I decided to give my lashes a break and stopped getting any refills for a while. And that’s when I faced the reality! I'd literally lost ⅔ of my lashes and they even looked shorter since most of them were trimmed during the process. But I thought this is natural. I thought that’s the price you have to pay when you get lash extensions. So I started to use eyelash fortifiers which helped a bit to restore my natural lashes and they started to grow a bit. But at times I would be so tempted to go for another sessions because I looked so good with them. And, then I would convince myself that that’s a terrible decision if I want to keep my own relatively long and full lashes or I’d lose all of them in a year.
