I used to freelance for a company that would literally make us apply individual lashes over and over again without applying any makeup so that we would get very skilled at it. Well, that's when I started to hate it and I just wanted to go back to the convenience of applying strip lashes. But then I found my love for it again when I had the opportunity of providing makeup services for a wedding this past Sunday. Actually, on the day of the bride's wedding, I applied strip lashes. But she called me the day after her wedding while preparing to go to the Dominican Republic for her honeymoon and asked me to apply strip lashes. My feelings were mixed but I was just happy that she liked my work enough to call me the day after her wedding to service her again.
Remember to not confuse applying individual lashes with lash extension treatments which typically requires a specific certification. But if you're interested in the natural looking approach that can last anywhere between 1-3 weeks depending on your physical activity and daily beauty regimen and you're not interested in spending a few hundred dollars, try applying individual lashes.
