I have posted about eyes before and how important they are for a photography session - both #Boudoir photography and other styles. They convey so much feeling, depth, love, spirit...they say the "eyes are the windows to the soul," and that isn't a lie. You can tell a lot about someone by looking into their eyes, and whether you feel they are your best feature or not - they are going to be the focal point of any session with #GorgeousChaosBoudoir.
Not long ago, I was introduced into the world of lash extensions. I am of Ukranian and English heritage, and my lashes are abhorrent. Seriously. They drive me nuts. Blond, don't take tinting well, short...so disappointing. Add onto that a makeup allergy I got when I failed to remove my makeup before bed...oh for about 15 years...and yes, I know.
A few months ago, one of my friends, based out of #edmonton, started talking to me about the lash extensions she does out of her home. It took me a while to decide if I wanted to take this journey because I had my concerns. Worried that they wouldn't stay on, wouldn't last, look "too much" all of the time. Shawna walked me through my options, and while I have upgraded over time...we started off basic, and now I am in more of a full volume set - because I like them like that. Lashes are a must for many #edmontonboudoir sessions because they draw people to your eyes. Years ago when I first started in #boudoir, I even then recommended getting false eyelashes done because it gives an edge and a touch of glamour to your pictures. If you are not comfortable with lashes - no one will ever demand you wear them, but if you are investing in yourself for a Boudoir session - it is a little touch that will often change the dynamics of the images tenfold. Beyond that - you now have the option of false lashes or lash extensions which is what I wear and photograph with. They make me feel amazing and I never have regretted having them since I first took the plunge. While my puny eyelashes never bothered me, they have always been a source of annoyance because with that darn make-up allergy - trying to find a mascara that would make my lashes stand out was nearly impossible. I must have spent over the years a few thousand dollars on mascara, and while I finally found one I liked - it is $60 a tube and would last about 1.5 months before it started to dry out and needed to be replaced. Added up - that is a lot of money every year.
I have been promising Shawna for about a month I was going to make a post about my lash experience and the full-service #lash job she does, and today was the day. She runs Touch of Class Beauty Services out of her home studio and seriously - does a fantastic job. The results speak for themselves...
Now - as a reward for reading this far into my #edmontonboudoir blog post, Shawna has generously offered 10% off for anyone wanting to try lashes with mention of this post. She is a single mom who works her butt off to make sure her kids are happy and healthy - so if you are in the market - hit up her page (linked above) and book a session. She is extremely affordable and is a hell of a Woman as well.
