Lashes, and lashes, and LASHES…oh my!!!

For years I have been obsessed with finding the latest and greatest mascara. Mascara was kind of a necessity in my world as I have very light colored lashes. But I needed one that didn’t run or smudge when I worked out and made my lashes look lush and long without making them look like big black spider legs. I would ask my sister, my mom, and my girlfriends for their opinions, recommendations, and what worked best for them.

Now don’t get me wrong, I found a few products that I really liked, but trust me when I say there is NOTHING like waking up in the morning with fluffy beautiful dark lashes even before you have brushed your teeth or touched your makeup bag! HOW you ask? Well, I can’t wait to tell you!

You see I have a secret weapon…it’s called The Lash Lounge. And this beautiful spot…and I do mean BEAUTIFUL (wait until you see it!), gives me the “superpower” of waking up with bright eyes and the gift of NO MORE MASCARA! And they do this all while giving me a snuggly blanket, a bed to lay down on, and headphones with my choice of music. Sounds pretty fantastic right?? Well, it most definitely IS! Let me give you the deets!

Every 3 weeks or so I go visit the lash experts at The Lash Lounge in Chenoweth Square…for my LASH EXTENSIONS! Now I’ll admit, I had no idea such a thing existed until their grand opening several months ago but boy am I glad I know now! I seriously look forward to my appointments as I decadently get to have a very rare mid afternoon “lash nap” as they call them in the biz! During the application process you are required to close your eyes…ummm, OKAY! You don’t have to tell me twice! Off to dream land it is! The best part? I wake up to lush lashes that look like my own only BETTER!

Shhhh…lash nap in progress. 😉

You most likely have some questions about the process as I know I did. Here are a few bits of information that I can answer for you from my personal experience, before making your first appointment.

  • Does is hurt? Absolutely NOT. In no way, shape, or form is getting lash extensions painful.
  • Can I still wear eye makeup with my new lashes? Absolutely! You simply need to make sure that the products you are using are oil free…mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadows, as well as makeup removers. The great thing is, with your new extensions, you won’t feel the NEED to wear some of these products anymore! Your lashes will steal the show!
  • Will they ruin my natural lashes? If you play by the rules, absolutely NOT. Do not pull the extensions out yourself. They are as easy to remove (professionally) as they are to put on. Plus, they will eventually fall out on their own with the natural shedding of your lashes.
  • Do I HAVE to come in every 2-3 weeks? I’m not sure I have the time. The answer to that is no. However, this is the recommended amount of time to keep your lashes looking their very BEST. Taking good care of them by using oil free products and keeping them clean, may help to stretch the time out in between visits every now and again.
  • I want my lashes to look very natural. Will extensions make them look like I have fake lashes on? Absolutely NOT. Lash extensions look far different than strip lashes. Every experience at The Lash Lounge is customizable so along with your personal lash expert, you will choose the length, the amount of curl, and the material that best suites you (think mink or silk), your eye shape, and your desired look…from naturally gorgeous (classic) to va-va-voom glam (volume). The choice is absolutely YOURS!
  • Before my mink lashes in the morning and after my mink lashes ANY TIME OF THE DAY!
