Happy Valentine’s Day: Batting my eyelashes at Latisse

A few years ago, I gave myself the Valentine's Day gift of long eyelashes, which I had never had. As a teen I would stand in front of the mirror for hours practicing curling my lashes. On one instance, I actually cut my lashes in the hopes that they would grow longer & be as dark at the ends as they were at the roots. Needless to say, it didn't work & I looked really weird for a while. As an adult, I noticed that my lashes were looking thinner than ever. 

So, on 11/11/11, I started Latisse and a mere three months later, on Valentine's Day, I was able to post great results! I didn’t like the brushes that came with the product so I bought my own MAC eyeliner brush. Of course, you should start with a clean face before bedtime. Put one drop of liquid in the bottle cap, dip the brush in until it is soaked, then swipe it across both lids, (rinse the brush each night with hot water). You need to let it dry completely before putting on any moisturizer. Check out the results!




MONTH THREE- Valentine's Day 2012

After some time, my lashes actually curled on their own so no more eyelash curler! I go through phases where they are shorter or longer but the coolest thing is how much thicker they are. I also apply my mascara in such a way that the tips are not coated. Why, you may ask? Because they actually come close to my eye brows when I look up & I get mascara smudges on my eyelids. I know, such problems ;)
