Are you ready for fabulous Lashes?

Eyelash extensions are fabulous! With new synthetic fiber technology, your individual eyelashes are paired with a lash extension using a bonding agent, giving you longer fuller eyelashes. Each person will recieve a fully customized look based on a thorough consultation. The synthetic lashes are applied to your actual lashes, so this is a semi-permanent/temporary effect. Your eyelashes shed like all the hair on your body so as your natural lashes are replaced the effect of the extensions will lessen over time. Typically lash extensions will last about four to six weeks. This is where touch-ups come in. Touch up appointments are necessary to have the desired look indefinitely.

Although most clients are just plain tired of having to wear mascara and want a natural everyday lash extension look to save on time - eyelash extensions are a favorite cosmetic procedure before important events, such as proms, weddings, reunions or other special occasions. Application techniques can give a subtle enhancement or you can go all out and have glitter or exotic color accents.

Synthetic eyelash extensions are a major advancement to eyelash strips and cluster lashes without the mess or heavy feel on your eyelids. When applied correctly they look and feel so natural its difficult to tell they are not your own. For a free consultation on the right lash extensions for you call Tina at 909-489-2436.

Flawless Skin + Bold Lip = Perfection

I wanted to share with you a great example of how much a bold lip color can "wake up" your look.

The makeup pictured here is VEEERRRYYY natural with subtle color on the eyelids and cheeks keeping with the attention to detail in shaping the brows, creating a more even skin tone and my favorite - the pop of lip color

Lash Love

I get asked all the time if I can make lashes look more dramatic with lash extensions. And as you can see from the pics below the answer is a long, lush...YEEESSS!!!

Lash Extensions are versitile and can be as natural or as va-va-voom as you like. I customize each look with different lash extension lengths and thickness.

For those that love the dramatic lash look this is for you!

Review: Sally Hansen Salon Effects

I was at a florist shop and the woman helping me had the cutest leopard print nails and I initially thought "Holy Craaap her nail person is seriously intense with the detailing aaaand it probably costed a TON of $$$" but to my surprise when I comment on her fabulousness she told me they were the Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail sticker things!! I totally did not beleive her and asked if I could touch them. They looked super cute and she went on to tell me they were easy to apply and she didnt have any chips after 3 days of wear. HUGE plus for me because my hands are in water alot (for facials) and I wash them like a thousand times a day at the salon.

I had to try them I was obsessed!! I went to Target & Walmart and there was a horrible selection only neon colors left :( I finally found a great selection at Rite Aid and I chose the Laced Up design. They were about $9

The steps on the box say "Peel, Apply, Shape." So I though this was going to be quick and simple. I was sooooo wrong.

- Took forever to apply - like over an hour
- They were super sticky so once you set them on there was no moving or adjusting
- When I tried to adjust or "gently pull" like the directions suggest they tore :(
- 16 strips instead of 20 so you could only get one use
- I have deep nail beds so they were not wide enough and I had some gaps at the sides of my nails

But I got a TON of compliments on them. Plus...

- They have lasted almost 2 weeks
- No chips or tears
- Freakin awesome patterns selections available
- The pattern helped to hide and ridges or not so smooth application
- Extra strips made it less stressful when applying knowing you had back up
- You can use the extra strips as accent nails
- They looked AMAZING on :)

Bottom line: A- If someone applied them for you it would be so much faster so have a bonding time with one of your girls and you can do each others nails
Would I buy again? Yes I want to try other patterns!
