Okay, I seriously DREAD putting mascara on. I like it thick and full and long, but that takes me 10-15 minutes as well as 18 layers of mascara. (it's pitiful I admit, especially if I give you the details like...my dirty sewing pin covered in mascara because I cant seem to keep my eyelashes separated with out it and don't get me started on the wet q-tips on stand by in case I accidentally miss my lashes and cover my entire my face with the black mascara, which is always a given).
Mascara is it's own little world of complicated and I'm ready to uncomplicate my life.
Have you even HEARD of tinting your lashes before? I did for my first time a year ago this month. And I was DUMBFOUNDED because SO many times, while I was applying mascara, I would say to myself...I wish I could just color my lashes and be done with this insignificant bottle of black gunk. (I'm almost certain that's what I said).
And they ACTUALLY do it! Now I've heard of Eyelash extensions and I'm even well on my way to getting my license to apply them, but I'm having a hard time picturing myself doing my own on my own face!. (I do my own acrylic nails, but I can still use my eyesight for that)
I was at a spa and was checking their services and happened upon EYELASH TINTING. Now, my heart sped up a little. And I asked the receptionist if this is what I think it is. She confirmed it. It cost $21 and lasts about 6 weeks.
So for any of you out there who want to go on a mascara strike with me...I'm doing it! And you're more than welcome to join me!
I'll post a before and after as soon as it's finished of coarse and keep you posted on the upkeeping. But seriously? Leaving my house with dark lashes and zero layers of mascara?
I think this procedure is a MUST for blondes (or any gal!) And it takes about 20-30 minutes. I researched and saw that the average cost is about $35 depending on your location. So give me a hallar if this is a DUH! thing for you because I think it's quite brilliant! I've heard of coloring your eyebrows, but THIS is a Mint flavored Oreo kind of idea!
Till next time, (and wishing my lashes turn out like hers).
