I love sleeping. I love it A LOT. I’m also a huuuge procrastinator, so most mornings will consist of me clicking the snooze button as many times as possible before realizing that I have thirty minutes to get ready. Now, you’re probably thinking, “Thirty minutes is enough time, right?” WRONG. I am so OCD with my eyelashes, it’s pathetic. Putting on mascara would take me forever, I would sit in front of the mirror for a good 20-30 minutes applying coat after coat. After watching my fair share of tutorials I still can’t get those strip lashes to look natural on me either. Needless to say, my lashes felt more like a chore.
I had the pleasure of getting my lashes done by Brooke Baird (check out her work HERE). Not only is she so cute, kind and funny but the girl can totally bust out some amazing lashes! It took her only TWO hours to put a full hybrid (Classic lashes mixed with Volume lashes) set on me. I’ve had my eyelashes done by a handful of talented- and some not so talented- women over the last six years and none of them have ever done a full set on me in less than three hours. I was amazed! She is so talented and takes her job very seriously but knows how to keep her clients comfortable and relaxed. Even if that means playing Enya throughout the entire appointment to stop my eyes from twitching. LOL 😉
Since getting eyelash extensions, it’s kind of crazy how much time I save. I can snooze to my little heart’s desire, wake up, get dressed, put in my contacts, take out my retainer, brush my teeth, take out my Savvy Curls headband (I’ll have a post up about this soon!), throw on some of my favorite NARS Tinted Moisturizer, touch up my unruly brows and boom- a bagel and I’m out the door in 15 minutes. FIFTEEN MINUTES to get completely ready when it used to take me thirty just to do my eye makeup! I think we can all agree that’s an awesome investment.
Good eyelashes really do make a difference. They accentuate my eyes a TON, I feel more feminine, put together and can be more efficient with my time now. But hey, I’m not saying everyone needs eyelash extensions. If you’ve got beautiful, natural lashes- rock ’em girl! However, if you’re like me and spend way too much time doing your eye makeup in the morning then I highly highly HIGHLY recommend getting your lashes done by a certified lash technician like Brooke. I say that because believe me, I have some serious horror stories.
Thankfully, Brooke is amazing and my absolute favorite. I will be visiting her in a few weeks for a refill and many, many, many times after that. If you’d like to book an appointment with Brooke (she’s in Lindon!) check out her Instagram for more info. 🙂
If you’d like to win a free set of lashes from Brooke, keep an eye on my Instagram tomorrow for a giveaway!!!
Thanks for reading, have a great week!
