13 Beauty Treatments That Are Worth the Money
Sometimes, you initially have to spend a little extra money (or time) to achieve #wokeuplikethis for real
Lasts: 2 to 3 weeks
Who should do it: Women with sparse, straight lashes, those who can't stand mascara or anyone with a special event coming up, like a wedding.
Why you should get it: Sometimes, no matter how much mascara you wear or how many curling techniques you try, your stubborn lashes remain puny and pathetic. With lash extensions, you'll wake up in the morning with the most amazing curl, volume and length of your life -- and you can go sans mascara for weeks. Because the lashes also define your lash line, you can often skip wearing eye makeup altogether -- a major time-saver.
Big bonus: They look real. Since the extensions are applied to each individual lash, they look more natural than falsies, says Sabrina Sasson, owner of WinxBeautique, a lash spa in Los Angeles.
Know before you go: Since the extensions are glued onto your own lashes, when they fall out, some of your own lashes may fall out with them. So when you stop getting extensions you might end up with stumpier lashes than when you started.
Also, if you tend to sleep on one side more than the other, the side that rubs against your pillow will lose lashes more quickly. And while no mascara can compare to eyelash extensions, the required touchups do add up. Assume an annual cost of roughly $1,000.
