So, you want to have your fall glow-up moment? Here’s the secret…
It’s all in the eyes. 👀
As in eyelashes and eyebrows! This season everyone’s falling for lash and brow pampering. Ready to kill it, Ella Bliss style?
Let’s start from the top.
Out with the old and in with the new!
Most of us have had our fair share of experiences with waxing our brows. But for those who are brand new *cough some men entering the chat cough* waxing is a great hair removal tool that can be used as a more efficient alternative to shaving.
In the case of eyebrows, it’s a crucial tool for maintenance and shaping. Waxing lasts longer than other forms of hair removal and, as an exfoliant, it promotes healthier skin and thinner hair regrowth.
FYI — Ella Bliss Beauty Bar offers a wide variety of waxing appointments from brows and lips to bikini areas 🥵.
- Brow lamination
Ask for a tint to make ya brows pop even more!
Have you ever wanted that bushy, yet polished Hollywood brow look? Think Kendall or Cardi…it’s called a brow lamination.
The process is semi-permanent and involves setting lotions to help create and hold your brows in that perfectly brushed shape for up to 6 weeks.
The procedure takes about 35 minutes to an hour. Like most of these services, brow lamination can help you save time while transforming your natural appearance. Maintenance only calls for simple brow conditioner and some love 💕 and then BAM! You’re on your way to achieving that straight out-of-bed beauty.
Brows and lashes go hand in hand — which means your glow up isn’t done yet!
- Lash extensions
Skip the mascara, skip the mess!
“What are extensions,” you ask? 👁👄👁 They’re semi-temporary lashes that are applied to the natural lash line with non-toxic adhesive to enhance any look. While the procedure itself is simple in nature, there are a few different set options that can make it confusing to navigate for the first time. It’s important to collaborate with your lash artist to help you find the best fit.
The extensions make-up hack can add volume and length to ensure a subtle but intense difference that lasts weeks. Extensions can be your secret weapon to elevate any appearance with ease. I mean ease, like helping you save time by streamlining your daily routine and replacing mascara, kind of ease.
How does it work?
Since the procedure itself only takes a painless one-and-a-half to two hours, you may find yourself binging the latest episodes of your favorite podcast or taking a much needed nap. Either way, you’re sure to find this time a much-appreciated bonus that comes with lash extensions. They do require some maintenance, but it’s a small price to pay to be able to bat your eyes with confidence!
End-to-end they can last up to eight weeks, but as our natural lashes shed, gaps may start to form. For this reason, it’s recommended to schedule and keep up with bi-weekly fills. To go the extra mile, our beauty bar specialists also offer lash tinting to pull off a more cohesive look.
Lash extension appointments are available at our Denver and Highlands Ranch locations where you’re able to work with our professional lash artists to start your transformation. Below is additional info you might want to know before discussing the menu with your Ella Bliss Beauty professional!
Depending on how your natural lashes are and how dramatic a look you’re going for, one of these set options will be your perfect match:
Classic: This is a great place to start if you’re looking to try out extensions or if you just want some extra length. With a 1:1 ratio of false-to-natural lashes, a classic set builds on your existing lashes without adding much volume, opening the eyes and ensuring you look always put together.
Hybrid: You can think of this as the Goldilocks “just right” between a classic and full volume set. This happy medium leaves lashes looking full without overwhelming your natural features. By mixing the two different spectrums of sets (classic and volume) at a 50:50 ratio you can try out that Kim Kardashian look with everyday practicality.
Volume: Wanna go full Kim K? Make a volume set your go-to. The intensity of each full volume set might vary depending on the false-to-natural lash ratio. Anywhere from one to a couple of false lashes may be applied per a single natural lash. This gives lashes a fluffier, thicker look. It’s something to keep in mind if you have challenges in the length and volume department, or if you struggle with poor lash growth.
- Lash lift
Let’s break it down again.
This is your cure for lashes that just won’t work with you or your curler! Enough of relying on a lighter and your curling patience to do the trick.
You can think of a lash lift as a simple way to modify the shape and, if you want, the color of your lashes. It’s even sometimes referred to as “the perm of the lash world.” Lash lifts can be your best friend if you find yourself stuck trying to achieve that curled look, but your lashes just won’t hold.
The procedure involves a serum process that curls and thickens each eyelash, resulting in thicker, longer-looking lashes. If you’re an overachiever and want to really turn heads, you can also get a lash tint, which will give you extra confidence with little effort.
Just like lash extensions, this hour-long appointment can save you precious time on your daily routine. If you’re kind to your lashes, they’ll be kind back, and last anywhere from six to eight weeks.
That’s our entire comprehensive guide to glowing up with brow and lash looks you’re sure to “fall” in love with. And all you must do is call us at Ella Bliss to book the self-care you’ve been waiting for!
