Summer Survival Kit + 2017 Fashion Refresh

Summer is just around the corner. Do you have your Summer survival kit ready?! Don’t worry lashettes, we have everything you need to survive the summer in style. Summer is the perfect time to refresh your wardrobe, try a new hairstyle, and refill your makeup bag. Don’t be afraid to lash out!

Wardrobe Refresh

Everyone’s Summer wardrobe is filled with beautiful floral prints, flowing dresses, and a fun romper; but if you want to stand out this summer, you need to refresh your closet with some rad 80’s wear and hippy chic. A denim jacket is a staple piece for every woman’s closet and pairs perfectly with an 80’s look or strappy dress. Acid wash shirts worn with pegged ripped jeans create a totally wicked 80’s outfit. Maxi dresses, bell sleeves, and a fringe vest will help create a fab hippy look. No matter which style you choose to try you is going to stand out.

Hairstyle Restyle!

When Summer comes everyone throws some highlights in their hair and perfects those beautiful beach waves, but Summer is the perfect time to try a new hairstyle. Why not try a headful of micro braids?! Or why not go straight 1960’s hippy with an afro?! You don’t see many women rocking those hairstyles and it will definitely help you stand from the crowd. Hair is the perfect way to experiment with a new look, but not having any long term commitments. 

Makeup Bag Must-Haves

SPF tinted moisturizer is a must have for every Summer survival kit. There is no better way to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays while providing a fresh, dewy look. D’High Shine Lip Gloss smooths and protects your lips from the harsh Summer heat. Super D’Nude Lip Gloss is a perfect compliment to a natural look. Peach and pink eye shadow worn with D’Wispy lashes will complete your daytime look. Take your look from day to night with a bold lip and rainbow powder highlighter. Rainbow powder highlighter can be used as a highlighter and an eyeshadow. If you swirl the powder together on your eyelid, it will create a silver, gray color perfect for a nighttime look. Super D’Copper Lip Gloss and Flashy Lashes will help you stand out while you are out on the town. 


Why not try something new this Summer? Gather your Summer Survival Kit, and don’t be afraid to show a little lash!

All About Extensions!

D'Lashes LA Lash Extensions Care Lashes

 The Perfect Lashes + Lash Knowledge

Life may not be perfect, but your lashes can be. You may have heard some of your friends talking about getting lash extensions and now you are curious what the buzz is all about. Today I have all your lash questions answered. Check me out on The Kitchy Kitchens The Beauty Parlor discussing lash knowledge and some quick tips to help you get the perfect lashes.

All About Extensions

Lash extensions are individual silk fibers attached to a single eyelash. Lash extensions are not attached to your eyelid and are not painful. After a while, you will forget even have them on. You can do anything in your lash extensions including swimming, exercising, and showers. Lash extensions come in various size, colors, and lengths. A combination of various lash extensions are what help to create a natural look. If lash extensions are done right, they will open up the eye and give you a beautiful, natural pop. However, if too many lash extensions are applied they don’t let the light through and your eyes won’t sparkle; leaving your eyes looking heavy. 

The Nature of Lashes

Your eyelashes naturally fall out and so will your extensions. Lash extensions do not make your natural lashes fall out. Lashes grow at different rates; sometimes you may get an extension on an older lash and it may fall out shortly after application. It is okay! This is why we recommend getting a fill in every 2-3 weeks. Lash extensions attach to real eyelashes making it look like more are falling out than actually are. Lashes have a natural life cycle and you are growing new lashes all the time in order to keep your eyes protected. So, don’t worry about losing a few. 

Dionne’s Lash Tips

Lash care is very simple. We never pull, rub, or tug our lashes! Do it cute! Gently take a q-tip around the eye or let the running water in the shower cleanse your lashes. A warm shower will also help those lashes bounce back to life. A finger, q-tip, micro-swab, or tweezers are great tools that will help you get the perfect lash placement.

Beverly Hills Lash Extensions

Eyelash extensions are so convenient and save you time. They are the perfect thing for every busy woman. When you have eyelash extensions you don’t have to worry about makeup in the morning. You will just wake up looking fabulash. Are you ready to lash out?!

FAUX LASHES THAT LAST?

D'Lashes How To Clean Faux Lashes Beauty Blog

 

Dionne’s Tips on Cleaning + Upkeep on your Faux Lashes

Loving your lashes is your right ladies, and they are just like any other item you love to wear. They require maintenance and upkeep to stay looking their best. I’m here to give you advice on how to get more than 3-4 uses out of the beautiful lashes you love. 

TOP 3 TIPS

  1. Keep your real lashes in mind and think delicate when removing your faux lashes! Use the pads of your thumb and forefinger to pull from the outside inward gently. If you prefer individual cluster lashes, you’ll remove one cluster at a time instead of trying to remove them all at once. By using the pads of your fingers, you avoid damaging the lashes or crimping them rendering them useless. No faster way to destroy your day than ruining your beloved D’Wispy lashes while removing them! 
  2. To maintain your lashes for future lash-tastic looks, cleanliness is next to goddessness! Start by removing the glue. Hold your lashes firmly with the pads of your fingers and use the other hand to peel until you see the band again gently. After removing the glue, use an oil-free makeup remover and q-tips to clean the excess makeup from your lashes starting from the band to the tip of the lashes. Let them air dry before storing them. Fresh faces are best complimented by clean lashes. 
  3. Now, I’m going to tell you about how to keep your Lash Stash safe. While you may love the summer sun, your recently cleaned lashes do not. The sun can cause their color to fade or warp the lash bands. You want them to keep their shape so they should be placed back in the moon shaped tray they came from, or you can also buy lash storage cases online. If you buy online, get the hard cases for extra protection and easier travel ensuring that you can Lash Out on your next vacation or business trip. 

D’Lashes has a variety of luxurious faux lashes just waiting to become a permanent part of your collection or you can sign up for the Lash Stash subscription box and receive gorgeous sets of lashes each month to continuously replenish your very own “Lash Stash”!  and don’t forget if faux lashes and upkeep are too much of a hassle I’m always here to make you look fabulash with lash extensions! Book your appointment today!

It promotes growth, prevents brittleness and lash fall outs, and it not only improves the condition of your lashes but your eyes too! It’s as simple to consume as eating a breakfast of eggs, banana, and toast or bagel with nut butter.

Throwback? or Comeback? ’80s Trend

D'Lashes Lash Extensions Lashes 80s Fashion Trend
  Throwback? or Comeback? + 80’s Style Must Haves

 
Inspo is in!  What should you be looking for this year? Comeback of 80’s beauty trends. From blush to blue eye shadow, the 80’s are back in a big way with a modern twist. CHANEL is especially killing it with major modern ’80s inspo!
Don’t forget your crown!

In true 80s fashion the bigger the hair, the better, but in 2017 we are focusing all our teasing efforts to the crown. The concept of volumizing only one focal point leaves the versatility of creating a sleek appearance or a more untamed looked while not compromising height. Grab your hairspray and reminisce about the “good old days,” but don’t get carried away!

No need to blush!

Or is there? Blush is making its way back this year, but let us not overdo it. Less is more especially when it comes to rouge. Pick shades that work with your skin tone and take into account the structure of your cheekbones and face shape when searching for tips on the best way to apply your blush. Keep in mind that monochromatic looks are back and treat yourself to that matching lipstick while you’re at it.

Flash Those Lashes & Color pop! 
Bright pops of color on the lids extending out to the temples have been making their way up and down the runways. Blue, green and purple shades along with metallic silver and gold are among some of the most popular shadow colors paired with black or colored liner in the eye’s waterline. Be sure that you use a two-brush method in the application of bold colored shadows, using one brush to apply and the other to blend. This helps us to control pigmentation and ensure that we do not over apply. Eyes are the window to your soul and what better way to bare your soul than framing it accordingly.  Big Lashes and Big Hair are in! So, Flash those Lashes and adorn your brightly colored eyes with D’Lashes!

Dionne’s 13 Second Rule!

Dionne’s 13 Second Rule! + Shop your lashes now

Ladies, have you ever passed a gorgeous pair of lashes by just because you don’t think you can apply them yourself? My heart goes out to you. Rest assured that every flawlessly lashed out beauty you see had to muster the courage at some point and just go for it. I will not leave you to wander lashless and hungry for the knowledge of application techniques. My 13 Second Rule, as well as a few essential tips and tricks, will have you lashing out in no time.

Supplies:

First, you will need to gather your supplies. Buy that set of lashes you can’t live without. You have earned it! Don’t forget your tweezers and lash curlers to ensure delicate handling and perfect placement of your lashes. Now, find yourself a mirror and an outfit and let’s get started.

1. Grab your perfect set of D’Lashes and remove them gently with your tweezers from their tray pulling from the end of the smaller lashes. 

2. Place your lashes up to the spine in your eyelash curler as if you were curling them.

3. Next, add a thin layer of adhesive to the spine and wait 13 seconds for your adhesive to get tacky. In this case, tacky is a good thing. Some glues can take 30-50 seconds to get tacky.

4. Once your adhesive is tacky, use your lash curlers to add them to your lash line and your tweezers to softly press down the spine of the lash right into the crease. Hold the spine in the crease for 10 seconds for optimum adherence.

It’s all about practice. It’s okay if you use a little too much glue the first few times. When removing make sure not just to pull the lash off, or you may end up pulling out your natural lashes with them. Use water or oil-free makeup remover on a q-tip and gently remove to save your real and faux lashes or to remove excess glue. Practice makes perfect!

D’Lashes has a plethora of faux lash options for beginners and pros. If you have a lash itch and you just can’t scratch it by yourself, we have you covered. Book your appointment today and stop making excuses for why you can’t lash out!

Hollywood Survival Kit + What’s “in” This Year!

 
Have you ever wondered how every leading lady in Hollywood could pull off a seemingly flawless look at the drop of a hat? It isn’t because there is a makeup artist at every corner. It is, however, an unspoken survival kit that every woman should have. I will share with you the secret to the bare necessities that every woman should have on her at all times.
Three main focal points are consisting of your brows, eyes, and lips.

Let’s be honest, anyone checking you out closer than that better be sending you a paycheck. Fresh faces are coming back this year so tuck away your ultra coverage makeup and focus on things that enhance your naturally beautiful features.

1. Brows

Brows have been “on fleek” for a while now. A brown pen is an absolute must-have in your kit. Define your brows by lining them with sleek edges and filling in in any bald spots to give you beauty-full arches before moving on to your eyes.

2. Eyes
Our eyes come in many shapes, colors, and sizes and need enhancing according to these factors. Black eyeliner has always been a must-have. Black liner goes well with any eye color and helps to define the outer lines of the eyes, lids, and waterline. And don’t forget! Nothing goes better with a black liner than lashes! Lashes are a growing basic need for women in fashion today which is why D’Lashes has launched it’s very own “lash stash” subscription box. This way you can get several sets of lashes each month and for every occasion. Ladies love a good deal, so if you sign up for our emails, you can get 10% off your first “lash stash” box. 
Awesome deals on beauty are like gold. Speaking of gold, you will need a gold shadow crayon for your survival kit. Metallics are coming back by way of eye shadow and crayons are quick and mess free when you’re on the run.
3. Lips

How can we forget our lips? Red lips are classic, sexy, and have been very popular in the beauty industry for years. The variety of red hues in a lip color is endless. Blue toned reds, orange/rusty reds, and the pink reds are among the most popular, and I guarantee there is a red for everyone. 

Dress to impress, gather your Hollywood Survival Kit, and don’t be afraid to show a little lash!

Organize your Beauty Life: New Year, New You + Valentine’s Day Favorites

Now that 2017 is here, why not poise yourself for success? Giving yourself an edge can be as easy as getting organized, and I’m here to help you make the most of the New Year. Here is a quick step-by-step rundown of how you can start off on the right foot.

START WITH YOUR MAKEUP BRUSHES 

Let’s be honest: when was the last time you gave your makeup brushes a good cleaning? Your face is beautiful, so treat it right with clean brushes! To start, run the bristles under warm water. Then, gently run them through a gentle brush soap or shampoo. Finish it off by running the bristles under water again to remove the suds, and let them air dry.

PURGE YOUR MAKEUP

Sorry, ladies, but it might be time to say goodbye to your favorite mascara or eyeliner. Even if your eye makeup looks totally fine after a year or two, there’s a good chance that it has accumulated bacteria over time. Some of the ingredients might have also oxidized and degraded with age. As you purge, your old makeup, say hello to fresh products like my D’High Shine Lip Gloss to ease the pain of saying farewell.

GET A FEEL FOR THE NEW YOU 

New Year means a new look, and you can instantly give yourself a more glamorous appearance with my D’Lashes in 2017. We have everything from D’Wispy Lashes to D’Luscious Lashes to help you turn heads.

Remember, the goal is not only to look your best but feel your best, as you get organized and prepared to take on the remainder of 2017, rest assured that I’m ready to help you get to where you want to be.
