We live in a world of research. Scientists and experts are continually curious about the connection between the human mind and body, so they take every opportunity to study the impacts of one on the other. Most recently, a study indicated that women with eyelash extensions feel more confident about their appearance than sans-extensions. While some women selectively use eyelash extensions for important occasions like weddings and reunions, others have their extensions filled every month like clockwork to keep them in place. These “regulars” have shared their feelings on lash extensions to help others understand why they are such powerful confidence boosters.
Nicole, for example, is 47 years old and has been using eyelash extensions for more than 8 years. She gets them filled every 3-4 weeks to maintain their appearance. When asked what makes the investment worth it, Nicole replied, “They are so worth it to me because they look amazing all the time. You can just put on lip gloss and go if that’s all you want or have the time to do. I feel like I look pretty all the time. They just open up your whole face; you smile with your eyes too, not just your mouth. I get so many compliments from people who say that my lashes are so beautiful, and they don’t even know that they are extensions until I tell them.”
Sharifah, age 36, has been using eyelash extensions nearly as long as Nicole, and her reaction is very similar. She says that her lash extensions are a bigger priority to her than a mani-pedi or a blowout, because of “how much the lashes enhance my eyes—and their natural beauty. The lash extensions open my eyes up and make them brighter and more awake. Also I save money on mascara and the whole process of curling my lashes.”
With responses like these so popular among women who have tried lash extensions, it is no wonder that the research reports that women with extensions feel more confident about their looks.
