MORE AND more young women seem to be getting eyelash extensions recently, to not only look beautiful, but to save the faff of having to apply mascara.
But one woman has taken to TikTok to reveal that she got eyelash extensions just before her holiday but was immediately left with regret.
Sofia, known on TikTok as ‘myqueenalessia’, took to the social media video-sharing platform to reveal what happened when she had eyelash extensions done.
The beauty fan uploaded her video with the caption ‘I will stick to strip lashes’.
She said: “Getting lash extensions gone wrong before my holidays.”
Sofia confirmed that she had had a patch test prior to the beauty procedure, but nothing had flagged up that she was allergic, so the technician said that she was fine to have the treatment done.
