5 Reasons Brides Should Say “I Do” to Lash…

You’ve got the ring, the dress, the venue…but what about the finishing touches for your big-day look? Learn why you (and your bride tribe) need lash extensions!

1. Customize Your Lash Look

Instead of banking on your bestie’s ability to apply false lash strips, let us—the experts—work our lash magic!

Schedule your first full set appointment where you will discuss all of the customizable options with your stylist in order to determine the perfect lash look for your big day. Whether you want to keep it “au naturel” or you’re going ultra-glam, we’ll create a personalized look you’ll be excited to claim as your “something new”!

2. Look Picture-Perfect for ALL Wedding Events

From your engagement photos to your bachelorette party, wedding showers, rehearsal dinner, honeymoon and then, of course, the wedding itself, lash extensions will have you looking your absolute best for all of those professional (and candid) photographs.

3. Enjoy A Stress-Free + Simplified Beauty Routine

Wedding planning can get stressful, so it’s important to find a way to relax and find a place where you can take a breather. The Lash Lounge is that place! Whether it’s your first appointment or your regular two-week refill, we urge you to leave the stress at the door, lay back and enjoy some peaceful “me time” while we transform your lashes…and, trust us, your life!

This luxurious service will not only help you unwind, but it will also simplify your beauty routine, too. Since having lash extensions often means no need for extra makeup, you will feel a weight off your shoulders each morning when you’ll save time getting ready. So, hit that snooze button a couple more times or take that extra 15–20 minutes to sip coffee while you add some dreamy details to your Pinterest board.

Let’s not forget the other very important people who are often involved in the planning: the mother of the bride and groom and, of course, your bridesmaids! These important ladies deserve some pampering, so when you schedule your appointment, schedule one for your mom, soon-to-be MIL and your girls while you’re at it!

4. Secure Those (Smudge-Free) Moments

Lash extensions are the answer for any bride (and bridesmaid) who:
Foresees shedding a few tears during those heartfelt vows. (Mascara running down your face ruining that flawless makeup? No, thank you!)
Would rather skip the embarrassment of a lash strip falling off on the dance floor while showing all those epic moves.

5. Because You Deserve It!

That’s reason enough to get lash extensions in our book!

Meghan Markle’s Big Day Beauty Look and How to…

There was so much to be in awe of over the weekend when it came to the Royal Wedding, but our number one awe inspiring moment was when we first saw the bride. Meghan Markle stayed true to her sense of style keeping her big day look classic, modern and not overdone. Same went for her makeup and since it’s officially wedding season, we’re breaking down her big day beauty look and how you can get the same look for your big day – or simply everyday!

One guess what our favorite part of her look was . . . her lashes and brows, of course!

FACE

Her Look: Gorgeous and glowing, the bride went for a natural look when it came to her face. She’s all about letting her freckles show, therefor she didn’t try to cover them up. While she skipped the heavy foundation, her makeup artist for the wedding (Daniel Martin) did add a bit of concealer under her eye.

Get The Look: Meghan’s said she’s a fan of super-light foundations (again, so her freckles can show through). To get there, Meghan’s pre-engagement makeup artist, Lydia Sellers, says she would reach for Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation in shade 6.25 with a few drops of 5.5. Bounced on with a slightly wet Beautyblender, it gives light, dewy coverage. (via glamour.com)

EYES + LASHES

The Look: Her eyes were the main beauty feature as she wore smoky gray eyeshadow and her lashes were bold with the most lovely full and fluttery appearance.

Get The Look:  Rather than overdoing the eyeliner, Meghan tends to play up her lashes. The best way to get this lovely look is to get Volume Lash Extensions! The fullness, length, curl and deep, natural color and overall look is just the ticket to having royally gorgeous lashes.

For eyeliners, her two favorites are M.A.C. Teddy, a gorgeous, gold-flecked brown, and Chanel Eyeliner in Cassis, a shimmery plum that she draws on her upper lash line and water line. (via glamour.com)

LIPS

The Look: Her lips were painted a peachy pale pink shade of lipstick that had a satin finish. (via hapersbazaar.com)

Get The Look: The word on the street is that Markle’s a fan of Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Very Victoria ($34), a matte, dusty rose-tinted nude that seems polished enough even for the halls of Buckingham Palace or, say, the queen’s personal tea room. Not only does the pink tone give it some warmth—a nonnegotiable when you’re dealing with nude shades—but the matte finish makes it feel more modern than your average neutral lipstick. Also worth noting: Celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury is one of the best-known Brits in her field, so Markle’s choice could be a sly nod to her new country. (via glamour.com)

BROWS

The Look: Not overly bold but still quite beautiful, her brows were striking, defined and filled-in to anchor her face.

Get The Look: Sherrille Riley is responsible for Meghan’s brows and told metro.co.uk how she created the perfect brow style for her, which she refers to as the ‘Audrey Hepburn Brow’. The style is to keep the brows as straight as possible with a gradual lift at the tail ends and the style is completely arch-less and in-line with the natural brow. It’s a really modern twist on the iconic brow shape that Audrey was famous for. This effortless shape lifts the face and harmonises the features. Threading is one of the methods Riley uses to achieve this classic brow look on Meghan.
