In the summer you want to be as carefree as possible since it is hot and you may be traveling. This means you will be wearing strapless dresses, shorts, or light tops and tunics. You probably want to spend as little time as possible doing your make up too. I have a solution for you that would make you beauty regimen a thing of the past.
What about just getting eyelash extensions that last the whole summer? The ideal situation would be to get semi permanent or permanent eyeliner if you wear eyeliner and then eyelash extensions and you literally can wake up, put sunscreen, moisturizer, and lip balm on and you are out the door.
How do you find a reputable place that does eyelash extensions? Always read Yelp pages I find they are pretty reliable. If you live in Chicago, Seattle, Boston, San Francisco, Dallas, LA or NYC a quick google search and you will find many places that do eyelash extensions including top salons in the cities.
I recently got my eyelash extensions at a Beverly Hills salon and I cannot think of anything better. I have been told that eyelash extensions are bad for your lashes, but I have had them in for 6 weeks now with fills in between and even had them taken off once and there were no lashes missing.
There are some pros for eyelash extensions:
You do not have to use mascara anymore
You look wide eyed and pretty as soon Â as you get out of bed
You Â do not have to take any eye make up with you when you travel
Your eye make up will not fade all day
Here are a few cons for eyelash extensions:
You may not want to look like you have long lashes all of the time
You may not like the idea of something being glued to your natural lashes
You do not want to have to maintain them every 3 to 4 weeks with refills
Whatever you decide just make sure to do your research.
Stella McCartneyâ€™s models made waves with their stunning cobalt liner during the designerâ€™s pre-fall show back in January, and makeup maven Pat McGrath decided to keep the blue love alive for the Fall 2012 show, this time in the form of moody-coolÂ midnight lashes. While this runway-ready look is a bit extreme with its spidery, doll-inspired lash look, you can get your own modern and wearable interpretation of the look in a variety of ways! If youâ€™ve never tried colored mascara before, you may be surprised at how eye-catching it can be without coming off as too distracting â€“ curl lashes and apply a couple coats of a navy or cobalt mascara likeÂ Buxom Lash Mascara Special Effects in Blue Noir. If youâ€™re feeling daring and want to experiment with a night-out look, swap your regular false lashes with a cool navy pair â€“Â Shu UemuraÂ has a good selection to play with! And if youâ€™re one of those girls who refuse to stray from her tried-and-true black mascara, but still want to jump aboard the blue bandwagon, try lining your waterline and the outer corners of your lash line with a navy liner, likeÂ Tarte EmphasEYES Aqua-Gel Liner in Navy!
