If you’re like me, the idea of lovely lashes with no fuss seemed impossible. I love the long and lush look of mascara, but have always wanted to take it up a notch. And, I wasn’t sure how to get it… until now. I heard Skinworks School of Advanced Skincare did eyelash extensions and I decided to try them. And, it has changed my beauty routine forever!
Let me back up a hair. I am a busy girl on-the-go and sometimes I don’t even wear makeup. Except for a little SPF foundation, some lip gloss, and a swipe or two of mascara, I always keep it quick and simple, then run out the door. I mean, who has time for a full-face contouring session complete with eyelash strips? Not me! I’ve never even tried them. And though that glam look is gorgeous, I simply don’t have the time. So, a low-maintenance routine is always what I’m after.
But, I also want to take great care of my skin and avoid anything that makes me appear older or will do damage to my skin. To save face, I always moisturize at night, but not without first gently removing mascara from my lashes and below my eyes, the fall-out that inevitably happens every day. You know, the smudgy black stuff that makes you look worn out and tired, even when you’re not! And, continuous pulling of those sensitive lower eyelids cannot be good for avoiding future wrinkles either. But long, black lashes is what I crave, so you do what you gotta do, right?
I have gazed longingly at my friends’ eyes who had eyelash extensions. I absolutely love how gorgeous they look, but I have been hesitant because of the maintenance, the cost, and wondered if the rumors were true about my real lashes falling out. Enter Skinworks.
After first hearing about Skinworks School of Advanced Skincare and reading their amazing customer reviews online, I decided to give them a try. Yes, they are a school, but if you are worried about having a student applying semi-permanent glue near your eyes like I was, then here’s what made me think twice: knowing that a highly-trained student (with licensed instructor supervision) would be working with up-to-date methods made me feel much more comfortable. Never having done it before, I wasn’t sure what look I wanted either, so I would rather not just walk into any salon or spa without feeling assured that the person I’d be with would have some oversight.
Skinworks has one of the best reputations for beauty and spa services around! And, with advanced esthetics training methods and laser-like focus on using skin-saving products, it seemed like the most natural choice for me. And, wow! It was amazing.
From the first call, to the last lash, my experience at Skinworks was worry-free. They provide thoughtful attention and strong customer service at every turn. From scheduling your appointment to a follow-up email, Skinworks truly aims to please. And the facility is as nice and relaxing as any high-end spa you could find!
The student, LV, took her time in making me feel comfortable and walking me through my consultation. She placed collagen pads on my eyes to help sooth and rejuvenate that delicate area during lash application. While I relaxed on the heated bed, she explained each step of the service as she went along. She answered every question I had and was such a joy to meet. It was a fun, shared experience too because she and I were both learning together. Two pleasant hours later, she was finished. Eyelash extension application takes time, but is time well spent relaxing and feeling beautiful when it’s over. And, not only did I love my final look, I loved knowing that I had helped LV practice her craft.
Even if you’ve tried lash extensions before or just looking for a cost-effective way to have lovely lashes without high-maintenance, call Skinworks. Their student spa prices are pretty affordable and, even though I am not high-maintenance and don’t want to spend a lot on upkeep, I am happy to say that my first visit to Skinworks was not my last! Taking time out every few weeks just for myself on something that makes me feel attractive and relaxed at the same time is a beautiful bargain.
Long lash story short, if you want to try out eyelash extensions for the first time, Skinworks is for you. Schedule your lash application at Skinworks! Call (801) 530-0001 today.
