I have heard of people feeling sexy in pretty lingerie or getting a new haircut or even driving a hot sports car…but it is rare that I hear about people feeling sexy blinking their eyes.
Yes – you guessed it, I uncovered a brand new way to “sex-ify” my bad self with the help of Makeup Artist to the stars, Emily Kate Warren. Ms. Warren’s name might sound familiar from her years as a key player at CosmoGirl Magazine, giving the 411 on all of the most fabulous beauty products on the market. But now she is full steam ahead as one of the most sought after makeup artists on the East Coast – you go girl!
In my quest to take a break from wearing mascara in these super hot, humid months, but still keep my green peepers alive, I gave Em a ring. She instantly suggested individual eyelash extensions and without hesitation I begged for her to fit me into her overly booked calendar.
One week later, I was getting my eyelash extensions put on – one lash at a time – by the very famous and very fabulous Emily! After one short, pain-free hour (Emily kept me occupied with her hilarious rhetoric and her sweet disposition), I had reached super stardom. I could feel my inner supermodel taking over my body and as I sashayed into the bathroom to check out my NEW eyes, I saw something I hadn’t expected. It was ME, but better. It was ME, but hotter. It was ME, but Victoria’s Secret sexier. I took a closer peek in the mirror and couldn’t find where my new individual lashes had been attached – or – even which were mine and which were false. They didn’t stick, nor did they feel heavy like other false lashes I have had in the past. These were perfection! With each blink, I felt like I was granting wishes – like Emily Kate Warren had sprinkled me with a little magic in that 60 minute session.
One hour, $200 and over 60 individual lashes later – I was able to live a mascara free life for over 5 weeks! With a little extra care from me (washing very gently and NOT using any oil based makeup removers or lotions on or near them), my gorgeous lashes stayed intact beyond what Emily promised. Well worth the investment if you ask me. Well worth it and then some. I can’t wait to go again! I am addicted…next time LONGER & THICKER!
