If you have ever paid for professional eyelash extensions you know that you are usually out at least $100 and 2 hours of your life. After experimenting with different false eyelashes, I found a great way to mimic the look at home. The total cost for the supplies is about $30, but they will last you through several applications. I use basic eyelash adhesive for individual eyelashes. It will last you about a week depending on how careful you are with your eyelashes. This is safe to do at home because we aren’t using any of the professional extension chemicals that can be hazardous in the wrong hands.
DIY Eyelash Extensions Supplies:
I got these on amazon and love them.
I always get clear instead of black because it’s more user-friendly.
You’ll definitely want these to help you apply the tiny lashes. The link is to a great pair on amazon, but I got mine at Sally’s Beauty Supply on sale for 59 cents.
Don’t skip on this! It’s the only way to remove the false eyelashes gently and without damaging your natural lashes.

love! =) i will have to try the individual ones since i loved the clusters they were just a little difficult to do by myself.
When you apply the individual eyelashes, how long do they last without using mascara and using mascara?
I usually combine them with mascara and they last up to two weeks.
As a lash extension technician/makeup artist and long time wearer of all types of lashes, I can tell you guys that this is just fine to do once in a while, but will absolutely do irreversible damage to your lashes if worn consistently. The reason that the best of us charge so much is that a lot of care/time/expertise and attention to detail goes into NOT gluing your lashes together. My lashes will never be what they used to be after years of wearing flares with this type of glue.
It works wonderful and I have been doing this method for 2 years and my lashes grow back perfect and I stopped going to licensed lash tech because they were messing up my lashes and using a ridiculous amount of glue so I did it my self and could not ask for a better job!!!
Thanks awesome Amanda!
