Eye Candy: Fairy Lash Extensions And Where You Can Get Them

A little sparkle never hurt anyone.

Getting bored of your usual set? We’ve got you covered. Keep your eyes peeled for the next big thing: Fairy Lash Extensions!

It’s true that the eyes are the windows to your soul. And this being a focal point, it doesn’t hurt to dress it up a bit every now and then. This means getting decked out with eye makeup, or big and bold lashes. The existence of eyelash extensions rests on this reason—to make a statement without so much of the hassle, because really, who has time for that?



This couldn’t be more imperative this Halloween season, where perhaps it’s time to step out of your comfort zone and go all out with the latest craze: fairy lash extensions. But what are they and where can you get them? We got a chance to meet the pioneer of the cutest lash trend, so naturally, we’ll let you in on an inside scoop.

Meet Jel of Highlash Society, the newest lash tech in town that will add a bit of sparkle to your eyes. From costume and fashion designer, to makeup artist, and now, a professional lash artist, Jel is changing the game one flutter at a time.

A fairy lash extension is a unique design that was heavily inspired by lash artists and technicians all over the world. According to Jel, a customized fairy lash set is composed of colored lash strands, handmade decals, and glitters to make it more fabulous. These custom extensions are pre-made with love the night before your appointment. The best part about this is that you never have to worry about having the same set as anyone else because she takes the time to understand your eye shape, and pay attention to what kind of design you want.

Through lots of experimentation and practice, Jel’s specialty is not only her unique and custom-made designs, but her ability to adapt a set based on the eye shape of her client. “I know how to adapt the lashes based on the eye shape and I know how to fine-tune the style they want so it can fit and compliment their own unique beauty,” says Jel. “I put a lot of attention to textures, shadows, spikes coverage, etc.”

Some might think that lash extensions are just a gimmick that means charging high prices, the extensions are known to fall off easily, and your natural lash possibly getting damaged. These situations are very reasonable. It might also feel intimidating or even scary, especially for someone trying the lash service for the first time. Not to worry, these don’t have to happen to you. When you set a lash appointment with Highlash Society, you are first advised to refrain from touching your eyes and then you are given instructions to clean your extensions with a lash shampoo for hygienic purposes. This also maintains its longevity. 

So, what are you waiting for? Add a little dazzle to your eyes with a custom fairy lash set by Jel of Highlash Society. Check out her work on Instagram where she has designed lashes for a bunch of IG baddies such as Pat Cortez, Oliv, and the Sia Siblngs: Toni and Kingzie! Don’t their lashes look so extra? We’re obsessed, and we’re sure you will be, too.
