I have this thing for any and all kinds of semi-permanent alternatives to actually doing my own makeup. Because I’m a mom to a little one, a work-at-homer, and still as vain as I was in my 20s, I realized that while I no longer had the time or energy for my full beauty routine, I didn’t have to walk out of the house looking like the crypt keeper (or, y’know, just all pale in the face with no discernible lashes), thanks to the plethora of permanent makeup solutions available these days. It may seem high maintenance at first, but when you really start to think about it, it’s as low maintenance as you can get.
Somewhere between lash extensions and mascara, the dip is actually a brush-on gel applied by hand to cleaned and curled lashes and left on for a full day. It’s not painful, or even uncomfortable – just tedious; my upper and lower lashes took about two hours to complete. So far, I’m pretty happy with the result – I’ll check back in a couple of weeks to let you know how they’re faring.
Have you ever had a lash dip? I had mine done by Chelsie at Vanity Cosmetics in Sherman Oaks (Los Angeles), and she is lovely and meticulous. Check out the step by step below!
