Looking Back at a 2017 Trend: Lash Extensions

 45680273 - woman eye with long eyelashes. eyelash extension

Ah, mermaid lashes. Those long, voluptuous, iridescent colored lashes that were all the rage last year. While that specific trend has cooled in popularity, lash extensions have been around since 1911 and are a trend that is not likely to go away any time soon.

Pros of Lash Extensions

Imagine waking up in the morning and not needing to reach for any mascara to wake yours eyes up and make them stand out. Imagine having long, fluttering lashes without the least bit of effort on your part. That is the advantage to lash extensions. They enhance the natural look of your lashes and add a touch of magic and romance to any look. You don’t need smudge-proof mascara; your lash extensions hold their color beautifully. There’s no need for makeup remover or worry about smudging. Lash extensions can give you a confidence boost and be the finishing touch on your preparations for your big day.

Is there a Down Side?

For most women, the only downside of lash extensions is the cost and effort of maintenance. If you’re going to wear extensions all the time, it can become a chore to remember to keep them dry, not to rub your eyes, and to spend an hour having your lashes refilled. If you’re getting extensions for a special occasion, however, like your wedding, lash extensions are very affordable and convenient, and add a sparkle to your look that’s difficult to match with any other technique.

Spray Tans for your Fall Wedding | Charleston, SC

With fall around the corner, the golden glow you worked so hard to obtain all summer may be fading. Or you may be following a healthier routine of avoiding over-exposure to the sun. Whatever the case, a spray tan with FDA approved Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is a safe and attractive alternative to putting your skin at risk under tanning lamps. Coming in for a spray tan prior to your wedding is the best way to ensure you carry a healthy glow down the aisle on your special day.

Before Your Spray Tan

A spray tan lasts, on average, 4-10 days, depending upon your maintenance routine and your skin chemistry. You’ll want to plan your appointment accordingly. Any waxing appointments or exfoliation, including facials or chemical peels, should be completed well in advance of your tanning appointment. It is recommended that you wax a full 24 hours before your tanning session, to allow your skin time to prepare.

On the day of your appointment, shower and exfoliate to remove any dead skin cells. This will help ensure the product is applied evenly and prevent streaking or patching. Do not apply any lotions or use scented body wash. Plan to wear dark, loose-fitting clothing. You will not be able to shower, swim, or engage in vigorous exercise for at least 6-8 hours following your tanning session.

During your Spray Tan Appointment

You may wish to wear minimal clothing during your appointment for the best coverage. Remember that any clothing will result in tan lines. Minimal undergarments are important to protect your intimate areas. The solution should not come into contact with any mucous membranes. Use chapstick or lip balm to protect your lips, and apply a clear coat of nail polish to avoid staining your nails.

After your Spray Tan

Following your spray tan, you’ll want to give the formula time to develop. It’s important to avoid showering for 6-8 hours following your tan. Wear loose-fitting, dark colored clothing to prevent the solution from rubbing off. Consider sleeping in the same clothing to avoid staining sheets. After your initial shower, you can wear makeup and use non-alcoholic, unscented lotion as usual.
