I've been debating for months whether or not to get eyelash extensions and I finally bit the bullet and couldn't be happier! I seriously don't know what I did before I had them and now that I've grown accustom to them I'm not sure I'm ever going to take them off. I'm planning on doing a Do's & Don'ts of Eyelash Extensions post at the end of the week where I'll be talking more in depth about them and giving my tips on maintaining them, but in the meantime feel free to ask me any questions you'd like me to answer in the post.
Onto this smoky eye look, ever since I got eyelash extensions I've been wearing little to no eye makeup because the extensions add so much drama to your eyes there's really no need to add any makeup on a daily basis. I had a big party to go to so I figured I would create a smoky eye with my favorite slate shadows. This already glam look is even more dramatic when worn with eyelash extensions or false lashes and perfect for a big night out. Rosy blush and lipstick warm up the overall look and make it look even better with a pale "end of Winter" complexion.
