A few months ago, I teamed up with celebrities Kathy Ireland, Bobbi Thomas and Chelsie Hightower, along with 8 other women across the country to serve as ambassadors for the Latisse Wishes Challenge.

Not only did we help raise over $400k for the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant wishes for approximately 54 children, I walked away with some new, amazing lashes! Read on to see my Latisse before-and-after pictures and a brief review of the eyelash growth product.

I have always been dying to try lash extension and thanks to Michelle, I finally got my hands on Ardell DuraLash Naturals Extension Kit. This was my first time doing lash extension and all I can say is boy does it take practice and lots and lots of patience!

Since I have Asian lashes, I chose the Short Lash in Black. The pack comes with 56 knotted individual lashes that are slightly longer than my natural lashes. Following the instructions on the pack, I picked up a cluster of hair with my favorite Tweezerman tweezers, dipped it in the Ardell LashTite Individual Lash Adhesive and randomly placed it on top of my natural lashes and near the roots. I started from the middle of my eye and worked my way outwards. After fiddling around for almost 15 minutes, I finally got 5 clusters on each eye. When I was done, I was pretty happy with the result – it was natural yet you could definitely tell my lashes got thicker and longer.
