Let's Talk Lash Extensions vol.1

     So ladies, let's talk about lashes for women"of a certain age".  When time gifts us with our badges of honor and wisdom in the form of lines and skin with less elasticity, it's easy to let our minds wander into the realm of maybe a nip here and a tuck there, or "how risky is Botox?" or just shrug and accept it. I get it. My suggestion to you before you head down that road is first try lashes, and here's why: 

      Have you noticed that by the end of the day all of your eye makeup has slid off of your eyes and settled into the lines underneath leaving you with the dreaded raccoon look? Yep, been there! How about wandering the aisles of your favorite makeup store looking for mascara that can make your slowly thinning and shortening lashes come back from wherever they went? Hmmm, that sounds familiar... What about waking up in the morning and wondering why you still look tired? Well, I will tell you from first hand experience that for me, wearing lashed has solved those problems. When you no longer have a need for heavy eye makeup and mascara that flakes off all over your face, it changes the game. 

     I've found that one of the biggest benefits of wearing lashes is that I wake up in the morning and I look awake (even if I don't feel that way). How about no longer spending 15 minutes (at least) with eyeliner and mascara and your face hanging out about 2 inches away from the bathroom mirror trying to see where to apply it? Yeah, I don't miss that...Lash extensions have made my morning routine significantly faster and easier, they have given me more confidence and freedom, and I believe they could do the same for you.  I promise that if you decide that lashes are right for you, at Elevate we will not let you leave looking like a clown or a caricature of yourself.  We have lash stylists that specialize in authentic looking lashes and are knowledgable about applying them to mature eyes.  Give us a call, we are happy to consult with you and answer any questions you may have.

Let's Talk Lash Extensions vol. 2

My lash experience started in 2015 when I decided that after achieving my weight loss goal of 40lbs, I would treat myself to lash extensions.  Getting lash extensions was one of the best cosmetic decisions I've ever made.  I had more time for myself, my family and dare I say-sleep! To this day I have never gone without them. Going into 2016 I was pregnant with my first baby and felt so lucky(and sick and tired and huge).  My lash extensions always made me feel so much better, as vainglorious as that sounds, I don't care- I looked good and that made me feel great.  In August 2016 our daughter Charlie was born! I looked forward to each eyelash fill appointment because it was the only thing I did for myself in those days/weeks/months, it was my one constant and made me feel good. God, did I look forward to my appointments, a whole hour to myself with my eyes closed!

We bought a house this past summer, Charlie will be 3 years old and my business partner and I decided to open Elevate Lash Studio.  Life has never been more busy and although I'm embracing and loving it, it gets chaotic.  Having my eyelashes done for me gets rid of an annoying daily chore.  Now even my busiest day starts off right.

I love making people feel great about themselves, I love empowering people with confidence. Take care of yourself, do this for you. Let us help you Elevate your confidence and streamline your daily routine, you will only wish you had done it sooner.
