Eyelash Extensions Review

I have been a fan of lash extensions for years. I just love the way they make my eyes look. I recently partnered up with Kayla from Bangz Hair Studio, to share her newly added eyelash extensions service.

I knew with Summer approaching it would be perfect for the makeup-free  days and events that I have in the next few months ahead.

The first appointment is always the longest, since you are starting off with a full set of eyelashes. It took about two hours and some people may use it as a time to take a nap, me and Kayla chatted. Kayla applied single lashes to the roots of my eyelashes with tweezers and a special glue. Kayla made sure to let me know to wash my face with an oil free cleanser and to use oil free eye makeup remover if you wear any eye makeup. I could not believe how amazing my lashes looked when she was done. It looked very natural and I didn’t even need any mascara, which is great and my lashes looked naturally long.

I would definitely recommend lash extensions if you have been considering them. Your eyes don’t feel any different after, they just look prettier. After about 2 weeks you can go back in for a fill in which takes about half the time of the first appointment. Usually within that time frame the extensions will shed with your natural lashes.

If you are interested in setting up an appointment you can call Kayla at Bangz Hair Studio at 864-224-9000, she’s amazing. Check out some of her work on Instagram! Also, if you mention this post, you will receive $10 off your first full set of extensions.

Favorite Amazon Beauty Buys

Hey lovelies! I just wanted to start out and mention that I am addicted to ordering from Amazon. I probably place an Amazon order at least once a week. And yes, I am an Amazon Prime Member, so at least I save a little money with that service, right? Of course you have to pay for the service but you do save in the long run. I order a lot of random things, things for the baby, and beauty products so today I wanted to show you my favorite beauty buys. More posts coming soon on the other products.

Now on to the beauty buys:

Makeup Favorites

I could spend forever in any makeup store. I’m not sure if it’s because I love discovering new products, or because I just can’t choose something that I want. Anyway, I have to say that purchasing a lot of new makeup gives me a feeling of satisfaction. I just love the freshness of it all. Today I’m sharing my makeup favorites for eyes, brows and face that I totally recommend.

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint: Love this product so much. You get just enough coverage with an SPF 30 that protects your skin.

Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel: I love how this makes my brows look. I don’t even need to fill them in! Also, it is water resistant which is a plus in my book.

NARS Eyeliner: The minute I tried this I was immediately I was obsessed.  I’ve been wearing this almost everyday and it really makes my eyes pop. I either add it to the top or the bottom, sometimes both at the same time.

Trish McEvoy Correct and Brighten Pen: As a new mom this is a must have for me! It definitely covers those dark circles and brightens my under eyes better than any product has before.
