Lashes!

A couple of months ago, my sister told me about  this new procedure her esthetician was now offering … eye-lash lifting and tinting. I was intrigued.

I’m a girly girl when it comes to clothes, shoes and purses but not when it comes to makeup. I pretty much wear mascara and lipstick and call it a day. If I’m wearing eyeliner or Heaven help us eye shadow, you know it’s an event. 😉

i thought this is right up my alley. I did my research and scoured Groupon  for a deal. The normal cost of the process is anywhere from $110-$120. I found a Groupon for $60 and had an additional discount code making my final cost, without tip of course, $45!

Here are my before photos…

Here are my after photos…

Here is a little bit about the process… It takes a total of 45 minutes. You lay down on a table while she preps your eyes. You look up. Look down. Close your eyes and relax. Your work is done. She applied the lifting serum which is basically a keratin treatment. She put something to cover my eyes and then a warm towel on top of that. After 30 minutes, she applied the tint. Then 10 minutes later she cleaned me up and I was ready to go.

I felt no pain at all. But my eyes did tear up when I opened them. She used a cooling fan for about a minute to dry my eyes and I was good to go.

The aftercare is pretty easy as well. I cannot wash them or get them wet for 24 hours. If I wear mascara, it has to be waterproof. And no oil can be applied to them either. I guess my castor oil treatments will have to go on the back burner for now. Oh and they last for 8 weeks. I’m pretty happy with the results.
