Two Years Later: The Decisions that Matter Most
By: Jen Boyles | Posted: 07/22/2013
Everywhere you look these days, women are walking around with luxurious, advertisement-ready eyelashes, and guess what? That’s not Maybelline, lady. Eyelash extensions have been an insider secret for better half of the last decade, made popular recently by reality TV shows such as Real Housewives and Keeping Up with the Kardashians, where it's obvious the women don't dare leave their multimillion dollar estates without them. As ridiculous as those shows are, I'd be lying if I said I didn't experience a twinge of lash envy every time I turned on the tube.
Unlike what makes those shows tick, the last thing you want on your wedding day is drama, but why not go there with your look? If you're a self-indulging fashion addict like me, you might find it a bit of a struggle to find new things that make you feel extra glamorous and pampered as a bride. For me, it was a couture dress, expensive hair treatments and—for the first time—eyelash extensions.
One of my greatest fears with my wedding was that I'd inevitably get mistaken for The Joker during teary vows with mascara running down my face, so when a newly married friend recommended this service, I was all ears. No need for mascara, no mess? Sign me up! My friend had great things to say about Edina's Jett Makeup and its owner Amy Presson. Two weeks before my wedding, Amy outfitted me with miracle lashes made of mink and within a few hours I felt like a walking Dior ad. Whether you want to achieve that over-the-top Kim K. vibe or something more fringy and romantic for your wedding day, Amy and her staff at Jett can glam you up. The best part? The lashes last well into the honeymoon! Here's what Amy had to tell us about the lash extension process.
