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.

Q: Hey Phyllis, is there a special way to take care of your falsies in order to maximize their life-span (3 to 4 uses?)

A: Of course there are ways you can make your false lashes last longer! I always reuse my lashes and I can use the same pair for up to 14 uses. The key is to treat them with ultra care so they stay in shape. Here are some tips:
