‘Tis the holiday season once again! Renowned for parties, family time, and getting far too little rest to prepare you for Aunt Hilda’s perfume or your boss’ wacky dance moves at the company holiday party. Odds are at this point your undereye bags are looking bigger than Santa’s sack of toys and you’re feeling about as attractive as Rudolph after an especially rough Christmas Eve. In just an hour and a half you can be transformed from droopy and tired to bright and sassy with their line of oh so glam eyelash extensions. Completely different than your standard drugstore fakes, The Eyelash Extensions are applied individually with a non-irritating adhesive glue and last for 6-8 weeks. Ada Ayala, my fantastic extension specialist, spent two hours crafting my gorgeous new peepers, leaving me bright eyed and ready to face the rest of the holiday season. At a relatively pricey $400 for a full set these aren’t an impulse buy, but for an event or a mid-season pick me up they might be just what the doctor ordered.

There’s a breeze in the Allure offices every time someone blinks, thanks to our new eyelash extensions. Without coordinating with each other, three of us got the lashes done recently—and the reason is that extensions have gotten so much better than they used to be. The first versions I saw on friends a couple years ago were a little too dramatic for my taste—superlong, thick, and a bit fake-looking. But now, there are different types available: pre-curled short, medium, or long synthetic lashes that can look natural (“athletic length”) to drag queen (“glamour length”). So I decided to give the “athletic” ones a try. The process still takes forever: you lie on a massage table for up to two hours with your eyes closed while an aesthetician (in my case, Ada) attaches roughly 100 individual lashes in between your natural ones. It was worth it. When I opened my eyes, I was thrilled with what I saw. The lashes look natural enough to be believably mine, but cat’s-eye enough that everyone in the office keeps asking me why I’m all dolled up, when I’m actually not wearing any makeup. Ada told me that, depending on how you care for them, the lashes can last up to two months—and until then, I’ll be batting my eyelashes at everybody.
