One of my favorite things, although a rare indulgence, is to get false lashes from Nancy at Brideface. It’s definitely a “special occasion” treat, and I am such a spaz that I refuse to take my makeup off at the end of the night, in hopes of making it last to the next day. Which always results in me waking up in the morning, freaking out that there is a spider on my pillow. (The “spider” = a cluster of lashes that have come off, as they’re not meant to be slept in).
So when Nance told me about Tracey Wells and her semi-permanent eyelash extensions, I had to see what it was all about! I went in yesterday and was so happy with the results that I just had to share the info. It’s a bit of a tedious process (more so for Tracey than for you!), but while you lie on a massage table for up to two hours, Tracey meticulously glues false lashes one by one to your individual real lashes. The lashes last 6-8 weeks, shedding with your own regular lash cycle. They are perfect for weddings – have them done the week before and you’re all set for your rehearsal dinner, wedding day, honeymoon and then some!
I took before and after photos with my phone – the transformation is dramatic! (Please excuse the unkempt brows and under-eye bags). It helps that my natural lashes, sans mascara, are pretty pale. Not as translucent as my sister’s, but pale for sure. On darker-haired beauties (like florist Courtenay Lambert) they look just as gorgeous but even more natural, in my opinion.
Tracey will be offering her services (eyelash extensions, Cry Baby mascara, and cosmetic tattooing) at The Bridal Studio every Thursday, and has a super convenient online appointment scheduling site. If you have any questions about her services, you can always contact her directly at 513-720-3296.Aviva Events was neither paid nor asked to post this review – we just love to share amazing products and services with our readers!
