Losing Your Lashes?
Loving: Beautiful Lashes
Fact, as we get older, our hair changes and typically thins. This includes our eyelashes and eyebrows! BUT…
Today, there are so many ways for people to look better than ever and I am truly all for it!
I love the look of long lashes! Many of my friends have lash extensions, which look amazing and are fairly reasonably priced now, but for me that is not an option! I have tried it on two separate occasions, leaving a huge gap of time in between, but I am apparently allergic to the glue. The result, I wanted to scratch my eyes out! My eyes itched like crazy and my eyes swelled shut, staying that way for over a week! Needless to say, I had to find a plan “B”!
I am truly against tattooing eyebrows and eyeliner on as it is not only permanent, but I think that it looks exactly like its name. So instead, I started using Latisse, which works great for me. There are other products similar, but I have not tried them. My eyelashes grew back super long and thick. So long, that I actually had to stop using it so often as my eyelashes were hitting my sunglasses lenses!
I am not a doctor or nurse, so consult with one when you get the prescription for the product, but I wanted to give you a few tips that I learned while using this product!
I am a little sensitive to the product, so I use it at night and every other day or so.
I found that the applicators that come with the Latisse are way too big and waste the product. I actually use a really fine brush applicator from another product that I clean after every application. This works great!
I put 1 drop of the Latisse into the lid and dip my applicator into the liquid that way. There is more than enough for both eyes.
I carefully put the product right along my lash line avoiding the inner eyelid as eyelashes were growing where they weren’t supposed to be growing…oops! I also try to avoid getting it on my lower lashes, as they were getting too long for my liking, just a personal preference!
I actually use all of the remaining product in the lid on my eyebrows, which has helped to keep my brows full and thick!
Here’s to being 50, Fabulous & Finally Free with long lashes!
