Drum roll, please! We recently held our very first “Lash Look” photoshoot with real Lash Lounge guests as our models (whoop!, whoop!). Today, we’re overjoyed to share an inside look into the lash life of one of our lovely models, Paroma. See what this music-loving mother has to say about her lash transformation and how she’s applied her new look and confidence to her life. Let’s meet Paroma!
LIFE BEFORE LASHES
As a computer software professional in an office environment, it has always been important to Paroma to put her best foot forward each day; and that includes looking and feeling put together. Before answering our “Lash Look” model call, Paroma (who is also mom to a darling 5-year-old little boy) had never given lash extensions a go. And when it came to her daily beauty routine, she was no stranger to spending extra time each morning with those dreaded tasks of applying mascara and working to get her eyeliner on just right.
A CUSTOM LASH LOOK, PLUS THAT MIRROR MOMENT!
When the day finally arrived for Paroma to join us at our corporate training center in Southlake, Texas, the lash anticipation was high and excitement in the air! First, Paroma sat down with one of our uber talented corporate training stylists, Shelley, to chat about her desired lash look. Everything from her eye shape, lifestyle and natural eyelashes were all carefully considered in order to create her perfect, customized lash creation. To complement her beautiful, natural features and existing lashes, Shelley went with a “volume: level 1” application and a stunning D curl, giving Paroma the full, lush lash line she had her heart set on.
After her full set application was complete, it was time to lift the lash curtain and hand over the mirror for Paroma to feast her eyes on her lash transformation. Two words came to her mind when she first saw her new lashes: BRIGHT and BEAUTIFUL! She just couldn’t believe how much the extensions enhanced her eyes, how much brighter her face looked and, of course, how beautiful her lashes made her look and feel!
A NEW LASH LIFE
Not long after the photoshoot, we checked in with Paroma to find out what she had been loving most about her new life with lashes. Did they add convenience to her daily beauty routine? Did they make her feel empowered and ready to conquer the day? We simply couldn’t wait to hear what she had to share!
After receiving her gorgeous full set of volume lashes, Paroma woke up every morning to a pleasant surprise she described as a “refreshed look” and that was without a stitch of makeup, too!
What Morning Makeup Routine?
Since Paroma has to get up at 6 a.m. and gets not only herself ready but also her son, this busy wife and mom has loved her new, simplified beauty routine thanks to lash extensions. She save loads of time since her eyes no longer need several coats of mascara or eyeliner. “Lip gloss is all I have needed,” she said.
Clothed in Lash Confidence
Another incredible part of Paroma’s lash transformation was the newfound confidence she gained. She shared “I’m more comfortable to feel natural on a daily basis.”
This is music to our ears because we love that she now has the ability to embrace her natural beauty in a way she has not done before.
That extra confidence boost Paroma had also came from all of the compliments she was getting from family, friends and even strangers! “I got compliments for my eyes and lashes wherever I went and that helps make it worth to me.”
We seriously love that Paroma now feels like her eyes are more of a focal point and that they were literally “catching” other’s eyes, too!
Since getting lash extensions, Paroma has felt even more inspired to try something new, set new goals and step outside of her comfort zone. Having lashes has helped her work towards those extra goals she has, both large and small!
Recently, Paroma took a step to do something for herself and be a part of a movement to empower women. How awesome is that?!
In her day-to-day life, she told us she’s been mindful to look to the women in her life for inspiration for encouragement in her own journey as a woman and working mom.
“I look to my mother as a role model. It’s impressive how she managed outside work and took care of us. I learn from her a lot for my day to day activities.” Work, motherhood and just life in general is a lot to juggle for any woman, but thanks to the women around her plus her new lash life, Paroma can conquer it all!
When we planned this photoshoot, we definitely wanted to get gorgeous images of our lashes. But, just as important to us, we wanted to witness our guests’ lash transformations in all their uniqueness. It was our goal to capture the true beauty of each woman and how “beautiful” comes in all different ages, looks, shapes and styles. We are so thankful for Paroma and all of our stunning lash models for helping us do just that.
Stay tuned over the coming months as we share more of the wonder women behind our shoot…and how they’re living their best lives with LASHES!
