Well, ditch your mascara, get your booty over to CityChic Extensions, and get one of the lovely ladies to apply a set of eyelash extensions to your lashes. I got a chance to try them out a few months ago and I loved, loved them! I felt so pretty and done up all the time. My technician did such an amazing job. She carefully applied the lashes to my own natural lashes and in the end; I had long and voluminous lashes. I literally stared at myself in the mirror for about 5 minutes. I just could not get over how great they looked! Eyelash extensions are low maintenance and do not harm your own natural lashes.
