If you are a woman that enjoys keeping up with the latest trends in hair, nails, brows, etc, you probably have noticed that eyelashes have gone to a whole new level. Many women (of all ages) spend countless hours and hundreds of dollars having individual lashes applied on a regular basis, getting eyelash extensions. Another trend is tinting and perming your lashes to have dramatic, curled lashes that will make your eyes pop.
Seen in a before and after, my daughter Hayley did the tint and perm treatment back in May, before our family vacation. Sure, in the bottom pic her lashes look noticeably longer, but does she look prettier??? I say no. I actually think she looks better in the top pic, where you SEE HER EYES.
In my opinion, this crazy business of lashes has gotten ridiculous. If the first thing someone notices about your face is your lashes, that’s not good ladies! Nobody should be admiring your lashes, they should be admiring your eyes, your whole face. I have seen some ladies where their lashes are so thick and black that they are distracting. Not a good look. Not attractive in the least.
Another detail that is ridiculous: with lash extensions, you need to keep them as dry as possible at all times and you are encouraged to sleep with your face off the pillow. Are you kidding me??? Not let the water in the shower run freely on my face?? Not be able to wash my face (and eye makeup) freely with a washcloth?? Ewww. Not at all appealing. And if you need to be this careful with your precious lashes, this means always…I can only imagine how much fun you are in the bedroom. Right????? :-0
Ok, I have made my point. 😉 You all know how much I love cosmetics and I am open to any effort/expense to look my best. As for lashes, I having been using Rodan and Fields Serum since April of 2017. I love the natural looking results and it’s simple to use. Click here to see my earlier post on this. I also love mascara, and while I have tried everything from Chanel to Trish McEvoy, my favorite is from the drugstore: Voluminous Carbon Black by L’Oreal. For occasions when I want a dramatic eye for an evening event, glue-on lashes from the drugstore are easy and fun.
Ok ladies, let’s hear from YOU!!!
