I got my EYELASHES permed!

Have you ever gotten a perm…..for your EYELASHES? Yes, I said “perm.” I know it sounds bizarre but let me tell you….it’s AWESOME! I personally am obsessed about keeping my eyelashes curled. I just think it looks good. Especially on those days that I really don’t have time to do my makeup or don’t want to—I will still always curl my lashes, apply a little bit of mascara and some lip gloss. Well getting my eyelashes permed were one of the best things I ever did. Instead of havening to curl my lashes multiple times a day to keep them where they belong they are already curled and remain curled. I still use my eyelash curler on some mornings when I use a little bit heavier of a mascara. So now I think I’m hooked!

Here’s how the process went down. I went and saw my esthetician, Tracy and she had me lie down. She cleaned my lashes with one of her Dermalogica Products to make sure I didn’t have any makeup residue on my eyelashes. Next, she pulled out her teeny tiny eyelash perm curling rods and picked out the size I would need. I get such a crack up out of the perming rods for lashes. Isn’t that funny! Next, Tracy went through the process of perming my lashes—I believe there were three different steps involved with the products. By the way, while my lashes were processing she plucked and manicured my brows—they never looked better! Approx. 45 minutes went by and I was done. My lashes were delicately curled. I went home and threw on some mascara and was really impressed at how great and open my eyes looked.

So now there will be no more over obsessing over my eyelash curler. Instead I will go visit Tracy every three months and get my lashes “done.”

I can’t do a post about eyelashes and not pay tribute to a few of my favorite mascaras:
