Kristi's Full Set

On Kristi's eyelash extensions I did 11's on the inside corners and 12's on the rest with c curl 2.0. Kristi has a company that has the coolest wall decals. They have 7 simple designs that allow you to apply them however you want. The best part is you can easily remove them if you are renting. Its the best way to add style to your home and not have to worry about the mess of wallpaper. Her website is www.wallsbymur.com and you can follow her on Instagram @wallsbymur to see great ideas of how people have used her designs.

Kelsey's Lashes

Kelsey's eyelash extensions are all 12 c curl 2.5. Her natural eyelashes are really curly and thick so her extensions always lay very well. With her new eyelash extensions we can always do fun dramatic look.


Kaley's Lashes

On Kaley's eyelash extensions I did 11's on the inside corners and 13's on the rest, all are in c curl 2.0. Doing shorter lashes on the inside corners help. Typically those are the lashes that fall out the fastest if you have them too long. The inside natural eyelashes are shorter and will need a smaller eyelash extension to be able to hold it up. Holding up the the corner lashes will make it so they don't bug her and will feel more natural.

Abby's Lashes

On Abby's eyelash extensions I did 11's on the inside corners and 12's on the rest. All in c curl 2.5

Lash care and purpose

I wanted to share an article I found today on eyelash extensions posted by national news. This article does a great job describing eyelash extensions and their purpose. I especially enjoyed reading the part about taking care of and extending the life of eyelash extensions.

Feel free to read the article and comment on your thoughts.

Katie's Lashes

Katie requested more natural looking lashes but still wanted to enjoy the striking effects of lash extensions. To create a more pronounced appearance without having a potentially over-dramatic look, I chose to do what is called a partial set. A partial set of eyelash extensions means to gauge their natural lashes as a guideline of sorts for both spacing and application.  By adding to Katie's natural lashes we were able to create her desired natural fuller look. Katie's partial created a contrast, bringing out her eye color while enhancing her already stunning look.

Jessica's lash fill



On Jessica's eyelash extensions I do 13's C curl on all of her lashes. 13's give extra length creating a stronger contrast for bright colored eyes.  Jessica has beautiful green eyes and her extensions really make them pop.

Taylor's Hair

I did the charming Taylor's hair today. She had edgy platinum hair but wanted something more natural and low maintenance. She has such a fun style and is always up for a change. So I matched her natural root color and put a shade lighter on the rest of her hair. It turned out beautiful.

Aubrey's hair change

Aubrey has been doing highlights for years but naturally has pretty dark hair. She was sick of always having dark roots and wanted to get her hair healthy again. So I did an all over color with her natural color and left out pieces for caramel highlights. It turned out beautiful and looked great with her skin tone.

Shayla's lashes

I did 10's on the inside corners and 11's on the rest in C curl. Shayla had never had lashes done before so I didn't want to go too long. I love new clients that haven't had them before because I love to see their reaction when they see them for the first time. They make such a difference.





Lexi's lashes

I do straight 14's C curl on Lexi. She has such a fun style and the dramatic lashes look great on her!

Aubrey's hair

She previously had a melt with her natural hair color on her roots. She wanted to go lighter for the spring/summer so I did a partial highlight with blonde and a Carmel brown.

Janeen's full set

I do straight 12's C curl eyelash extensions for Miss Janeen. This gives her a more dramatic look. Janeen is also using Lilash and it has made such a difference. Her eyelashes last so much longer and her natural lashes are 3 times the length they used to be and are much thicker. I would recommend it to anyone who has lash extensions.

My cute mom

On my mom's eyelash extensions I do 10's on the inside corners and 11's and 12's mixed on all the rest. When you mix the lengths it gives it a really natural look because they are not all exactly the same.

Tips and tricks for lash extensions

There are many different ways to help make our eyelash extensions last and I feel like we all have found our own special tricks.However, here are a few main ones that make the biggest difference in preserving your eyelash extensions:

1. Try to NEVER get them wet. It's not bad if you do but, the less moisture they have the longer they last. When you wash your face use a scrubber or washcloth to wash around your eyes.
2. Don't put anything on your eye lids that is oil based or moisturizing. Face creams, moisturizers, shadows or liners(that are oil based) should stay clear from your lids.
3. Use a lash sealer. This helps keep the glue from breaking down by keeping the moisture and oils out of your eyelashes.
4. Blow dry your lashes if they do get wet. I blow dry mine every time I get out of the shower. I don't get them wet but the steam from the shower causes moisture. Just put your blow dryer on cool and the lowest setting of air speed and blow dry them angling the blow dryer under your lashes blowing up with your eyes closed lightly. I have noticed it helps my lashes last longer and lay better.
5. Use a lash growth serum. There are many different kinds like Latisse, Lilash...etc. and they help your natural eyelashes to stay healthy and strong. This in the long run make your lash extensions last longer.
6. DO NOT pick or pull or rub! This will mess up your lashes completely and I can tell who does it because they have a lot of broken lashes(you know who you are). This makes it so they don't lay right and creates those awkward gaps. It also makes it so when you come get them filled I can't get them as thick because there are a lot of broken lashes. So just don't do it no matter how fun it is.

Rachel's nails

We did shellac in the color Tropix which is the perfect coral color. We also added a little glitz with a silver glitter on her ring fingers.



Protective sealer

The protective sealer is what I apply to my clients eyelash extensions after I do a full set or fill. It helps to seal and bond the lash extension. I would recommend it to anyone who has eyelash extensions because it protects your extensions from any moisture or oil that can break down the bond of your lashes. It's clear and can be applied daily to help make your eyelash extensions last longer and longer.

Mackenzie's lashes

On Mackenzie's eyelash extensions I did 11's on the inside corner, 12's in the center and 13's on the outside corner in C curl. This is the "cat eye" look which help make your eyes pop and look bigger.

Afton's lash fill

On Afton's eyelash extensions I apply straight 13's that are a J curl which give a more subtle look to a long length lash.

Sara's lash fill

On Sara's eyelash extensions we did 10's on the inside corners of her eyes and then 11's on the rest. This is what gives a thick but more natural look.
