I can’t believe it’s day 20 already and about time I got around to Christmas-ing up the blog, how do you like my festivity? Anyways, still more great posts to come in the last 5 days and up today is a real treat if you’re tired of the daily makeup routine.
Hate waking up and applying makeup in the dark winter months? The answer is lash extensions. Definitely not something I would have the patience for as a profession but my girlfriend Francesca does and she’s VERY good at it. Working out of her beautiful home studio in Sherwood Park, she lays you on a very comfy bed and meticulously separates and applies a false lash to each of your natural eyelashes.
Certified by Eye Candy Eyelash Extensions, all of her product is latex and formaldehyde free so there’s less chance of irritation and she blows me away every time I see a before/after side-by-side that she’s done.
She specialized in synthetic mink and silk classic extensions and will be learning 3D lash application soon as well. In 3D application, 2-3 very fine lashes are applied to each natural lash on your eye which varies length and thickness giving it a very full and natural effect. Lash applications vary depending on the person but usually last 3-4 weeks and then require a fill, a similar process to gel or acrylic nails.
As of a few days ago, she still had a few spots available for December but she is filling up quickly. Her hours are very flexible but if you can’t get an appointment at the time you’d like, she has a cancellation list you can go on as well. Email or text her early to ensure you get the appointment you’d like.
