Greta Garbo Was No Dope, It’s All About the Eyelashes

ERICA: I don’t have a “bridal skin regime” and have no earthly clue how I’m going to wear my hair on my wedding day, but eyelashes are a topic I can really sink my teeth into. I’ve been studying the subject all weekend.

Along with my alabaster (read: ghostly pale) complexion, I have a pair of super light, almost white eyelashes. I get them tinted every so often and that really makes a world of difference, but I’m ready to take things to the next level with actual eyelash extensions.

From what I’ve been able to uncover, the process of getting the extensions is quite involved as each piece of synthetic lash needs to be individually bonded to your own lashes. It supposedly takes several hours (not to mention several hundred dollars) to get the job done right. Though “touch ups” are needed, they apparently last up to two months. This means I can be looking lash-tacular at both my wedding AND on my honeymoon.
