A Day in the Lash Life: Modern Mom, Michelle

We’re diving into another inside look into the day and the (lash) life of a real Lash Lounge woman, Michelle from Modern Mom Life. See how this busy mother enjoys the convenience of lash extensions and how she’s taken them with her during all of her summer adventures!

Living Life With Lashes: An Interview With Modern Mom, Michelle

LL: When did you first fall in love with lash extensions and which Lash Lounge location do you currently visit?
MM: I started visiting the Frisco – Starwood location in the spring and that’s when my love affair with lashes began.

LL: Which service is hands-down your favorite?
MM: I have tried many of the services, but my answer is without a doubt hybrid and volume lash extensions!

LL: Has having lash extensions simplified your beauty routine? If so, please dish out those lash details for us!
MM: Lash extensions have absolutely simplified my daily beauty routine! Before I got hooked, I was applying several coats of mascara a day, but not anymore! I no longer wear mascara (nor do I need to—hooray!!), so that saves me precious time. I also love that, even when I don’t wear eye makeup, my lash extensions make my eyes appear more awake and dramatic. What woman doesn’t want that?!? I literally get SO many compliments and questions about my lashes from my friends, it’s amazing!

LL: What is it about having lash extensions during the summer that has been particularly life-changing?
MM: With kids at home and always being on the go, I don’t have as much time to apply eye makeup and create those dramatic looks I love so much. Now that I have lash extensions, I’m hooked on the simplicity of walking out the door without mascara or eyeliner, yet I feel like my eyes still look fabulous.

LL: What activities have you (and your lashes) enjoyed this summer?
MM: My kiddos and I have gone to the beach and also enjoyed many sunny days at the pool. My lash extensions don’t get in the way of me experiencing summer fun with my family. Like I mentioned, they have totally simplified my beauty routine!

LL: Does this mean you’ve gotten to enjoy some time in the water? If yes, please give us the scoop on how swimming with lash extensions has been for you.
MM: Oh yes, I have gone swimming A LOT this summer. Once I’m out of the water for the day, I make sure I brush my lashes with my lash wand once they are dry to make them appear full and fluffy again.*

*We recommend following your recommended aftercare routine when hopping out of the water, including a wash and a brushing, like Michelle does! A lash sealant keeps your lashes in place for longer, so is always good prep, too!

LL: From vacations to staycations to just simple fun, what has been your summer highlight?
MM: Our family went to Orange Beach, Ala. with my best friends and their families. It’s a yearly tradition to ensure we stay in touch with them since our lives have gotten so busy with growing families. We spent a week at the beach soaking up the sun and waves. It was a great way to kick off the season!

LL: Thank you for sharing your summer lash journey with us, Michelle! Is there anything else you’d like to add about your lashes and experience at The Lash Lounge?
MM: Overall, I LOVE that my lashes actually stay put! Your stylists are top-notch and, trust me, I know! I have received lash extension services elsewhere and they did not last. Not even just after a few days. I am so very pleased with the service and quality I have found at The Lash Lounge!


Hearing how much a guest loves her lashes is music to our ears, and so is hearing Michelle enjoyed ALL of her usual summer activities and took her lashes with her every “splash” of the way!

10 Summer Must-Haves: Face and Fashion

Summer’s here! As we settle into sunny skies and lakes for days, we’ve got the beauty and style staples to help you slip right into the season.

1. FACE: Powder Sunscreen

Say goodbye to those greasy lotions and hello to a powder sunscreen that will keep your skin protected and flawless all season long.

2. FASHION: Floppy Hat

Whether you’re jet-setting on vacay or simply want a stylish accessory to rock all summer, a floppy hat is always a must. Our faves are the ones with wide brims and UPF protection!

3. FACE: Aloe Vera Facial Mask

Moisturizing and deeply hydrating, this face mask will sooth your sun-kissed skin and offer relief if in case of sunburn (hey, never hurts to plan ahead!).

4. FASHION: Summer Soles

7. FACE: Lash Sealant

Investing in a lash sealant is a good idea year-round, but definitely during summertime when your lashes are often exposed to extra moisture from humidity, sweat and water activities.

A sealant extends the life of the adhesive, locking your extensions in place for a longer period of time. Snag one of our two sealants during your next appointment! We have our Black Diamond coating sealer which is a daily use product that adds a dark sheen and helps extend the life of your extensions. Then we have our Protecting Sealant which is used twice a week and is perfect for those of you with active lifestyles, anyone who lives in high humidity areas and those with oily skin.

8. FASHION: Striped Jersey Dress

Nothing screams summer like nautical stripes! Pair this classic pattern with a comfy jersey dress (flattering for all shapes and sizes) and you’re all set.

9. FACE: Diffusing Bronzer

Get that whoa glow and up your contour game with a sun-kissed, matte bronzer. Available in a variety of shades for all skin tones, this lightweight, silky, smooth formula is sure to be your go-to summer beauty product!

6 Summer Makeup Looks We Love

From a warm summer glow to sparkling silver eyes, here are 6 summer makeup looks we are currently loving!

1. Bronze Only Blush

Since your skin will be living in a perpetual state of flush for most of the summer anyway, swap your usual layer of cream blush for an iridescent bronzer to give your complexion a warm, just-napped-on-the-beach look. After an hour in the sun—or, let’s be honest, 60 seconds in your hot car–the bronzer will melt into your skin for a naturally glowy, dewy finish. (via marieclaire.com)

2. Slick ‘n Shiny Lips

It’s baaaaaaack. With better technology allowing for makeup companies to create more luxurious, non-goopy lip glosses and innovative oil-based lipstick formulas, shiny lips are making a slow and steady comeback after years of people obsessing over super-matte mouths. And there’s no right or wrong way to wear the look. Pair it with eye shadow or have it be your single makeup statement. (via allure.com)

3. Aqua Tinted Eyes

Build turquoise eyeliner up along the lower lashline for an intense kick of colour. (via: cosmopolitan.com)

The perfect blue liner can be tricky to find, so click here to see some great shades from Sephora.

4. The Sunset Look

Combine a vibrant lip color in shades of bougainvillea, hot coral, or orange-red with eyeshadows and liners in sunny yellow, marigold, or copper, the color-changing aspects of a spectacular sunset are represented without looking garish. (via refinery29.com)

5. Slashes of Silver

Normally associated with the cooler months and winter holidays, silver is an unexpected metallic for the summer months, especially when it’s free of chunky or obvious glitter. And when worn with subtle pink cheeks and lips and easy hair, silver can look just as sexy as the warmest, most smoldering bronze or copper shadow. (via: allure.com)

6. Metallic Eyeshadow

Bright, glitter-flecked eyeshadow can quickly veer into Studio 54 territory as soon as you start to perspire, but a bright, metallic cream shadow only looks better the hotter you get. If coppers and reds feel too bold, try tapping the same cream shadow over your lips and the apples of your cheeks, too, to balance out the eyes and tie the whole look together. (via marieclaire.com)
