Hello , hello ~
I felt it was time for another BEAUTY post.
I’ve talked about spray tanning & my makeup routine so far- you must check those out if you havent already. You must knowww I only talk about beauty topics that I’m very much into. For the most part I keep it all very simple.
A girl can pretty much rule the world with a good spray tan, honestly. But wait that’s not all…
I always thought a spray tan was all I needed- I was wrong.
Can we PLEASE talk about eyelash extensions??
& WHY have I never done them before?
I’m happy to say I finally did so & they have changed my life!!
Let me tell you all the details.
It’s not often that I SPOIL myself, really, unless it’s something that is TRULY going to change my life in a positive way (basically has to make me feel like a million bucks) or else it’s just really not worth my time (& MONEY).
I really have to justify even getting my nails done monthly, THANKFULLY the place I go to has AMAZING people who work there , which in return makes it worth it, I believe spending time with genuine people make anything worth it.
OK BACK TO EYELASHES.
However, genuine people is kind of on topic because I went to BEUATY BY AVINA in Folsom & Avina is INCREDIBLE. Avina is absolutely the most genuine beauty guru I have ever met. WHO KNOWS (actually knows, face-to-face) A BEAUTY GURU WHO IS JUST SALES HUNGRY? Yea, exactly, Avina is special.
Let me just give you a quick visual before we go forward:
I found Avina through a close friend of mine who gets her lashes done on a regular basis & that’s how I originally judged her work. Since my friend’s lashes always look GREAT I kind of trusted this girl right off the bat. Avina had just moved back from LA about a month ago and I’M SO THANKFUL.
WE NOW HAVE AN INCREDBILE LOCAL LASH LEGEND!!!
FIRST TIP: KNOW WHO YOU ARE GOING TO.
Please DO NOTTTTTT go find the first cheap place on Groupon. This is not something to be very cheap about. SAVE YOURSELF or save money but don’t get your lashes done in that situation & ruin your real lashes & walk away with a bad lash extension job (I’ve seen some gnarly ones).
If you go to an experienced and talented Esthetician you will have PERFECT lashes after your extentions.
MYTH : lash extentions ruin your real eyelashes.
Only if you go to a sketchy place with someone who doesn’t know what they are doing you will see an issue with your real lashes.
Eyelash extentions are perfect for the FIT GIRL who just doesn’t have the time aka running to the gym, running to work, running to school, running to grab her kids, etc etc etc.
I seriously never have time to get ready when I’m waking up at 4:30AM in the morning to make it to class on time. Eyelash extentions make it easy because they make your eyes pop and give an elusion that you have just a perfect amount of makeup on. WIN WIN.
I’m really into this eyelash trend & I think you should give it a try!!
If you are INTERESTED- Avina is offering $50 off to whoever mentions that they found her through my blog!!
Remember to treat yourself if it’s something that makes you feel CONFIDENT and ready to get things DONE.
