I've had eyelash extensions for a year and a half...It was amazing to me how fast I got used to them and how I feel natural with them on. How I cannot imagine myself without them.
Last year around this time I was bought a package for '1 year of extensions'...pre-paid, refills every 2 weeks. That meant an entire year of being free of the financial obligation of maintaining this amazing look. A look that doesn't require makeup to look awesome. A look that makes the daily effort of being pretty, completely easy and totally effortless. Literally.
I just used up my last of those appointments. I'll have these beautiful lashes thru the new year, but as they grow and fall out, I'll loose them. one by long and luxurious one.
It actually made me cry earlier as I realized I was going to have to be eyelash free and have to buy mascara again. Seems like such a stupid thing to get emotional about but I have REALLY loved having such a great look. I have always liked my eyes, but lashes made them stand out to everyone I came into contact with and was a huge confidence boost in a time when I really needed it. Call me superficial, I don't care b/c I have loved them and now I have to begin the process of saying goodbye to them.
Hopefully I'll become able to afford them again one day. Until then I will say goodbye to two things: 1. the second most personally-difficult year of my life (and also the most rewarding), and 2. a year of no makeup (and still looking great without it).
Goodbye 2010 and goodbye beautiful eyelashes
