Women have been wearing mascara for years in an effort to enhance their eyes and give the impression of beautiful long lashes. With eyelash extensions, you can kick that whole “apply, scrub off, repeat” routine to the curb without a worry that a workout or tear will ruin your look. Extensions give you beautiful lashes for four to six weeks without the daily maintenance, and are applied to your real lashes using a prescription-strength glue. They’ll last as long your regular eyelashes do, with no harm done. Check out this round-up of the best places in Minnesota to get your eyelash extensions.

www.jettmakeup.comMaking the women of the Twin Cities beautiful since 2007, Jett Makeup is one of the premiere names in eyelash extensions in the area. Owner Amy Presson was instrumental in bringing the Eyelash Bar to the business as she heard what her airbrush makeup bridal clients were asking for: a no-fuss way to always look done, especially through the hectic schedule of photographs, dinners and the big day. Jett Makeup offers synthetic, silk and mink fur eyelashes in both fill and full set options. Services begin at $100 for the most basic fill and run up to $450 for a full mink set, but check with the salon for latest deals and products.
