Have you tried eyelash extensions? They’re our new favorite thing. Yes, they require upkeep (every three weeks or so, you need a touch-up), but they are so completely worth it. Here’s why we’re convinced: Extensions make you look like you’re wearing perfectly applied mascara, so you don’t need to wear a stitch of eye makeup—which saves oodles of time every morning. And when you do decide to swipe on a little liner, your eyes go right to red carpet (perfect for date night). Plus, application involves lying down on a bed and having a lash artist flutter gently around your closed eyes. You can nap!
