Beauty Find: Eye Opening Extentions

March 3, 2006 by shefindsmichele

You don’t need Botox to look bright-eyed, just need lush lashes. I absolutely love the look of false lashes, but I’ve always reserved falsies for fancy occasions. It’s a process–and it has to be perfect or you risk looking like a drag queen. But the effect is undeniable. Eyes look bigger, brighter, sexier.

I caught the eyelash extension fever and had my skimpy lashes plumped up by the fabulous Christine Kolenda at NYC’s ever-chic Glow Skin Spa. Christine explained the delicate, arduous process–each whisper-thin individual lash is bonded to one of your own lashes, by her expert hands, one at a time, with specially formulated glue. For the next two-and-a-half HOURS, the unbelievable patient Saint Christine applied 20-30 lashes to each eye. When she was finally finished, it was more natural and less heavy than the do-it-yourself kind. The unexpected bonus was the black colored glue which darkens the lash line kicking up the fabulousness factor. My lashes lasted throughout my beach vacation, through my daily contact lense routine–and I looked pretty good when I woke up in the morning. If you’ve got the discipline to not tug or rub your eyes, you must give this trend a try. Glow Skin Spa’s eyelash extensions usually cost $250, but Glow is grand enough to give New Yorkers 15% off their first visit.


If you can’t make it to professional, achieve comparable results at home thanks to an increase of quantity and quality of over-the-counter fakes. I really like Make Up For Ever Eyelashes found at Sephora.com.
