Today I’m sharing the best beauty hacks ever!!! I’ve wanted to try out two beauty hacks for a while now and I finally got the courage and tried them a few months ago. Eyelash extensions + microblading. If you don’t know what microblading the definition is HERE. Also, I wanted to wait to share them with you all to see how much I really liked or disliked them. Both treatments are a moms (or any womens) best friend and they have made such a huge difference in the time I spend getting ready, or I not getting ready. haha. I feel like I hardly put any make up on lately because these make it look like I’m already ready to go and don’t have to do anything! You can see my FIVE minute makeup routine HERE.
I really did my researched for the microblading and went by word of mouth as well as looked through tons of before and alters before deciding on the right technician for me. I finally choose Mel with Allure Artistry as her work was amazing!! Seriously followed her Instagram months waiting for an “okay” before and after and NEVER found one. Every single client she had worked on — the results were amazing!! So I knew she was my girl. It took us quite a few months to arrange our schedules but I am so glad we made it work. Mel is based out of Salt Lake City, Utah but she does travel! Yay!
For all your questions about the process you can read here. It is not the most painful thing in the world — but it’s not the most comfortable experience. haha. But it was COMPLETELY worth it and I would do it again in a heartbeat!!
I’ve included her website: allureartistrycosmetics.com and email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or if you have anymore questions don’t hesitate to ask in the comments below!!
BEFORE + AFTER
(this was right after my first treatment…there are two and don’t mind the no make up. It was like 5:30 am)
Eyelash extensions — I’m figuring everybody knows what they are? Individual lash extensions for your eyelashes. For photo shoots for the past couple of years I have always put on fake eyelashes…like the three dollar kind at Sally’s. I loved the look it gave my eyes, but honestly who has time to do that every morning? Plus, after a few hours they would irritate my eyes. After feeling guilty about wanting extensions I finally put that aside and went for it. I figured I don’t get my hair done (because I do it myself) as well as my nails….most of the time. I am currently not going to the gym or am paying for a membership and anyways we all deserve a little pampering sometimes!!!
After asking million women and from word a mouth I finally found a wonderful technician!! She isn’t doesn’t do social media and is not online yet or I would link her here for you as well. My biggest tip would be – find someone through word of mouth!!! Look at their work online and ask their clients their honestly feeling. I have heard some scary stories of women going to someone they didn’t know or just found and that technician ruining their eyelashes. So take your time and look on IG as well!!!
In the end I am absolutely loving these two beauty hacks!! They have made all the difference in my mornings + how I feel. Because who doesn’t love to wakeup to eyelashes and eyebrows every morning?!! As always thank you for all your love and support here + I’d love to hear your favorite beauty hacks!!!! Please tell me below.
