Not all of us are born with Zooey Deschanel-style floor-sweeping lashes. In fact, most of us aren’t born with anything even close. So really, it’s no wonder that eyelash extensions are fast becoming the must-have eye accessory for ladies that want show-stopping lashes.

To test out the trend, we sent bh’s Natalie off to receive her very own set of Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions. These babies are single synthetic strands that are applied one by one to help you achieve a thicker, more luscious-looking set of lashes – while still maintaining a natural lash look and feel. Each set of eyelash extensions can last for up to two months, but to ensure they stay put for as long as possible, we recommend using specialised aftercare products.

Watch on as I show you how to use the Xtreme Lashes Aftercare Essentials Kit to help you get the most out of your eyelash extensions…
