If you were to ask me one beauty item I would need if I were stranded on a deserted island it would be MASCARA! Anytime I am doing my own makeup or doing a clients makeup, I won't let them look until the Mascara is on! It just completes the look!
Luckily I have always been blessed with long eyelashes and they don't have any funky weird kinks etc! I few years ago I dabbled in eyelash extensions. LOVE them, but I became allergic to the glue. I would tough through the itchy and swollen eyes for a few days after my fills in order to have long beautiful lashes for 2 weeks until my next fill. But eyelash extensions, even though they are beautiful - they are so expensive every 2 weeks! I would hide it from my husband and only pay in cash when I went ;)
After I finally took the plunge and removed my extensions I felt like my eye lashes were so short! Enter BABELASH! Babelash is a growth serum much like Latisse (but a lot less expensive and you don't need a prescription). Babelash is available at most salons or find it here.
Your lashes will look so much longer in about 2 weeks! So now that I have my long lashes thanks to Babelash, I needed them to look like extensions....
ENTER the most beautiful Casey Chebat, owner of Natura Skin Boutique at Re:vive Salon and Spa.
Casey owns a wonderful Boutique that offers Natural and Organic Facials and Salon services courtesy of Eminence Organics. There will be another post on the facials and products she offers, I could go on forever about them! Casey also offers Eyebrow Microblading (more on that in the future) and Eyelash Lifts and Tinting. Eyelash lifts are like perms for your eyelashes. It creates the look of lifted lashes straight from a eyelash curler. Along with the lift, Casey also tints the lashes. This created the look of mascara. So now with no makeup on, it looks like I have Mascara on! When im on the deserted island now I won't need my mascara, now I need lip gloss ;)
With the eyelash lift you can create different volumes of curls. I have long lashes and I don't like them too curly, I like them straighter. We opted to use a Large curl for my lashes. The whole process takes about 45 mins from lifting to tinting! The lift usually lasts about 8-12+ weeks depending on your lashes. I had my first lift a year ago and I swear they were still lifted! The tinting lasts about 3-4 weeks.
Casey is offering a one time price of $65 for a lift and tint (Normally $90) to anyone that books their appointment and References this blog post. The salon phone number is 716-692-0671 and is located at 2884 Niagara Falls Blvd, North Tonawanda, NY 14120.
