In the spirit of all things beauty this week, we've asked a few of our favorite bloggers to plumb the depths of their memories and their medicine cabinets to answer our nosiest beauty questions. Up next, we have the seriously girl-crush worthy Kelly Framel from acclaimed style blog The Glamourai. After the jump, she admits to going to great lengths for the perfect lash and ends up doing a kind of wrangling that has nothing to do with cowboys.
Ever tried a beauty product and had it go very, very wrong?
I love big eyelashes but I wasn't born with them, so I tried once to do the Mink Lashes, the extensions where they sew them individually onto your lashes. It was kind of fun, looked great right when they did it. But I did it right before Fashion Week and woke up one morning after I had slept on my side, and all of my lashes were just pushed to one side of my face at this really aggressive 45 degree angle away from eyes. That was a disaster. I spent about an hour that morning lash wrangling, trying to get them all back into position.
