Beauty

Butterfly kisses

When I was pregnant with Violet my daily energy decreased as my belly got bigger.  It became uncomfortable to walk and to even sleep because of the aches and pains that come with pregnancy.  My face was puffy and I began to get more blemishes because of the hormonal changes.  I did not feel the pregnancy glow, I did not feel pretty, so I decided to get eyelash extensions.

Eyelash extensions has become a popular beauty trend.  It can transform your face from having short sparse lashes like mine to beautiful full lashes.  Once the extensions are on I feel a beauty burst.  I am finally comfortable going out of the house to run errands with no makeup on.  I began to get them consistently while I was pregnant and have been maintaining them ever since.

The lashes usually last around 3 weeks depending on your shedding cycle, mine can last up to 4 weeks.  I have tried different lash technicians in the past and have found my go-to lash girl, Fern at Luxx Beautique. She is an ultimate professional and so meticulous in her craft.  My lashes always looks great and natural.  I don’t go too long or too curly because my eyes are small and I like wearing glasses.  Fern knows exactly how to give my eyelashes an extra oomph without making me feel too fake.  She also makes the atmosphere very comfortable and cues in if you want to keep chatting or take a nap.  For a touch-up it usually takes about an hour and thirty minutes so when Violet was younger I definitely took this opportunity to catch up on my sleep.

Her boutique is in Madison Valley and in addition to doing eyelash extensions she also has a small storefront. She sells the cutest and trendiest clothes, accessories, and beauty supplies.  She orders her merchandise from California so there are always unique and special pieces to find.

It is not the cheapest beauty maintenance but is definitely worth it.  A classic full set is $135 and a full touch-up is $65.  It is tough for women to maintain all the beauty upkeep that society finds important. From dyeing and cutting your hair every 8 weeks, manicures/pedicures, body hair waxing, facials and skin treatments, and now eyelash extensions; it is a lot to keep up with.  I do not do all of these services, but I find maintaining my eyelashes is something that I don’t want to give up.  I get an extra boost of confidence that ultimately makes me happy.  What beauty service can you not go without?

XO,
