I’ve never been one to wear a ton of makeup, as I’ve always enjoyed a natural look and an easy daily makeup routine. So, when I first heard about lash extensions I was skeptical. I’ve seen some pretty crazy false lashes over the years and wasn’t interested in wearing a “party look” 24/7. One day I found myself staring at my friend’s eye lashes, they were gorgeously long and thick, but looked so real. I couldn’t help but ask and she told me her secret….individual lash extensions. Not only did they look totally natural, they looked absolutely gorgeous and gave her eyes that extra sparkle. I was convinced I needed to try them, so I booked an appointment at Noir Lash Lounge in Yaletown.
My experience at Noir was fantastic! Their friendly staff greeted me with a cold bottle of water and ushered me to their lounge to wait for my lash technician.
At Noir, lashes aren’t an added service, it’s their only service. They have over 100 different semi-permanent lashes in a variety of lengths and thicknesses, so there is sure to be one to suit your needs. Once comfortably reclined in their cozy chez lounge, we discussed my ideal look. I expressed that I wanted a natural look that would give my eyes a bit more umph! We decided on applying a full set of lashes with size 13 length in the outer corners. Take a look at Noir’s full range of lash services here.
Above is my BEFORE picture with a fresh face and no makeup. Below is the AFTER with the addition of my Noir Lash Extensions. Whether you are heading to Vegas for the weekend and want a party look, or are getting married and don’t want those tears of joy to leave you with mascara streaks, lash extensions are the perfect solution to giving yourself a break from your daily makeup routine. Since having my lashes applied, I barely wear any makeup. A little concealer under my eyes, a pat of bronzer on my cheeks and I am good to go! I am sure any new mom can appreciate that! Who has time to put on makeup with kids around?! Take one hour for yourself every 3-4 weeks to lay back, in a calm and quiet environment (most importantly KID FREE!) and wake up pretty! I almost fell asleep the last time I was there….so I have a feeling I will be looking forward to my appointment every month once I have a brand new baby in my life!
