Lucious Lashes

Posted by on May 26, 2009 in Blog | 5 Comments

You can file this one under “what will they think of next”, but I have to tell  you that my new, favorite “Must Have” wedding related beauty treatment are eyelash extensions!  I know, I  know, how over the top can you get…… but seriously, they are absolutely amazing.  I saw my friends from My Hair and Makeup months ago and noticed Claudia and Debbie had the most AMAZING lashes. They were absolutely captivating!  Because I live to blog about these things, I set up an appointment to try it out.  Two hours later, I was out the door and  I was HOOKED. For six weeks, I was complimented again and again on my eyes, and I pretty much ran out of the house without make up, because, well, who needs makeup when you have AMAZING eye lashes!!!! (Mayra called them RIDICULOUS eye lashes, but WHO CARES what Mayra thinks).  Eventually they all fell out, like your regular eye lashes would- they are bonded to your real lashes with surgical glue, and for about a week I went around with my puny, normal, human lashes.  Then, in a panic, I realized that my college reunion was coming up and I could NOT show up without my super lashes.  Here is the before.

afterWOW, right?!  Anyway, I think it’s a great way to add a little something to your look and it will last through the honeymoon and into the weeks when you are back in the office (at least after all that excitement is over, you can take comfort in the lash envy your co-workers will feel).  Mention the blog post when you call My Hair and Makeup and the ladies will give you 10% off your lashes! As for my reunion, A BLAST!  I literally partied like it was 1999.  Rah, Rah Brunonia!!! Here’s a pic of the lashes in action with my friend Cathryn at out 10 year tent- btw, those seem to be her real lashes…. not fair. :-)

    I can attest, they look amazing. Also, I’ve been using a product that you brush on your lashline every night – I think it’s called MD lash factor – and it totally works as well! My normally tragic, stunted little lashes have grown to the lengths of normal people lashes. I’m sticking with it!
    Also, I think this begs a new office motto – ‘Always A Bridesmaid: Where the Expertise is Real, but the Lashes are Fake’.

    I’m a bridesmaid this summer and the bride sent us an email asking if we wanted our hair or makeup done and then also gave us the price and options for fake eye-lashes and I totally thought she was kidding. Apparently its the new big thing!!
