Where my minimalist makeup girls at?! I may be a hoarder of all other things but when it comes to makeup, I prefer the natural look. Unless there is an event, I almost never wear makeup. As I explained back when I had Microblading done by Bee Pampered, I won’t leave the house without mascara (even if it’s a day old) and my brows did. I was spending a good chunk of time filling in my eyebrows and then even longer on my lashes.
I attended Blanche Macdonald in 2007, I quickly learned about the different products. Mascara may seem pretty straightforward, however, as you dive in, your realize there is much more. From primers to waterproof, down to the brush you apply with, there is more to it than meet the eye! (Get it?!)
Some people were blessed with beautiful thick lashes that naturally curl up (mostly little boys though…amIright?!) I was cursed with lashes the basically stick straight out! Like any good straight lashed lady, I invested in 10 different torture devices…err… lash curlers until I found the right one. I curled them repeatedly, coated my lashes with a primer and then went to town applying 3 different mascaras. I swore only to waterproof mascara, which is said to hold a curl better.
So an hour later, I had my brows and mascara done! Well.. Aint’s nobody got time for that! So slowly I let go a little bit, I went down to only using my curler, primer and 1 version of waterproof. My “natural face” became the constantly tired looking face. I need mascara to brighten up my eyes and not only look but then FEEL more away! There was this thing called lash perm but if you’re a child of the 80’s/90’s and fell victim one too many times to mom insisting you get a perm, lash and perm are two words I never wanted to hear in the same sentence.
What does a straight lashed girl do? She starts researching! I found this service called a lash perm but if you’re a child of the 80’s/90’s and fell victim one too many times to mom insisting you get a perm. Lash and perm are two words I never wanted to hear in the same sentence.
Fast forward to the current year and Stefani of Organic Makeup Artistry kept popping up in news feed with this gorgeous natural makeup look; which is totally my style! Suddenly I’m hearing about lash extensions and this thing called a Lash Lift. I’m not much of an extension gal but what is a lash lift?
A Lash Lift is a way to add length, volume and lift to your natural eyelashes but with no extensions, adhesive and no mascara. Unlike the traditional; lash lift, LVL (Length-Volume-Lift) Enhance will actually straighten your natural lashes at the root giving the appearance of longer and thicker lashes. However, it doesn’t stop there, Stefani actually did a lash tint at the time of which creates the appearance of a mascara effect. Throw in a hand and arm massage, natural local products and I was hooked.
Stefani is one of those mama’s you just can’t NOT support! With her little home studio in the works, she creates magic and brings so much joy and beauty to her clients’ lives. With one little man running around and another babe on the way, her home studio is filled with love and a wealth of knowledge. Quality and beauty are clearly at the top of her priority list as she’s spent plenty of time researching her craft and ensuring that she’s only using the best! After much training, Stefani settled on one company who aligned with her high standards. Stefani was trained by Nouveau Lashes, where all their technicians are training to the highest technical standards. You can be safe in the knowledge that during your treatment your lashes are in the best possible hands.
My appointment was just over an hour long. It was a nice welcomed and needed rest, which also included a hand and arm massage! The results were instant and will last for six to eight weeks. Little maintenance is required once you are done, you just basically have to be gentle for the first 48 hours and then you’re good to go! I actually attended an event less than a week later for the first time in my life ever with no mascara on my lashes, this would have been unthinkable before. Getting ready to go out has become quicker now that I don’t have to apply mascara or fill in my brows and that has been amazing!
You don’t need to have long lashes to see great results and it only takes about an hour! How can you go wrong? Did we mention the hand and arm massage part?
