Eyelash Extensions x WinQ Lash Bar

I just wanted to share a lovely lash bar I have been recently in love with. Eyelash extensions have become one of the most popular beauty services people are getting done. I never thought I would get them done regularly but it has saved me such a great chunk of time in the mornings and I have been much more comfortable going makeup-less now of days!

I generally wear makeup on a daily basis, but when I go to work, I usually just slap on foundation, concealer, and mascara. On the days I go out with friends or just out I need my eyes to stand out (yes because they're small and round shaped) so I add on some eyeshadow and some cat eye winged eyeliner + maybe double stacked falsies. I love makeup, especially lashes because it makes you feel + look more alive. 

Alright, let's get down to business.

Where did I go? 
Winq Lash Bar based in Boston, Massachusetts (in the Allston/Brighton area also T accessable). 

Who was your stylist?
The amazing Katherine Toker. She is incredibly kind and patient and will work with you every step of the way to achieve the look you desire. 

Why did I decide to go for it?
I wore false lashes so often on top of my mascara regularly because of how thin my lashes were so why not just wake up with some fluffy and curled lashes?! With a little bit of budgeting, I was sold. I'm just so busy with work and school this is a great way to make me look more alive and spend less time trying to get ready. Also, have you seen the studio?! It is drop-dead gorgeous.

How much is it? 
Full set lashes start at roughly $200 and fills start at $49. Just an FYI Winq always has a ton of promos so if you're interested, subscribe to their mailing list to receive goodies + scroll down if you want my promo code!

How long did it take? 
A full volume set took roughly 2.5 hours. My fills take roughly 1.5 hours. Be prepared to take a long nap. 

How long do they last? 
They honestly last around 2-4 weeks (some people 5 weeks). But I love getting my fills at the 2-3 week mark to keep them fluffy and voluminous.

What style did you get?
I got the Yas Queen! Volume set. I am not 100% positive about what length she has me in but I got cat-eye D curl. Cat eye is essential for me because it creates the illusion of a winged eyeliner without actually wearing eyeliner.

Are they easy to take care of? 
I am someone who has a bad habit of rubbing my eyes so having these babies made me more conscious of that. Don't rub your eyes, don't sleep on your face, don't get them wet within the first 24 hours, and brush them often! So easy and worth saving time in the morning getting ready.

Overall experience? 
WORTH IT. Me being someone with naturally boring small, narrow eyes and straight lashes, these babies give me so much life and confidence. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is like me and is lazy but needs lashes, or if you are going on vacation and don't want to deal with worrying about lashes, or if you just want that extra lash fluff. Also, the store's vibe is like you're treating yourself to a vacation. Palm trees everywhere and long naps.
