QUICK MAKE UP TUTORIAL WITH EYELASH EXTENSIONS

Applying mascara at stop lights on the way to work, promising your significant other that you just need ten more minutes to get ready and you really mean it this time...sound familiar?

If you're a busy student or woman constantly on the go, the above scenarios might sound more like regular rituals to you. We could all use a faster make up routine (and the person sitting behind us in rush hour traffic might appreciate it too). So why not let eyelash extensions save you several minutes in the morning on eye make up? 

Lash extensions open up, darken, and decorate your entire eye area so you can forget about curling your eye lashes, mascara, eye liner, eye shadow - all of that! 

In the video below, DC Lash Bar employee Sydnie demonstrates her full glam routine with a set of classic lash extensions. She loves the way her lashes help her save time every day and nearly wake up ready, because every minute counts!

HOW TO KEEP THOSE LASH EXTENSIONS LOOKING FLAWLESS

HOW TO KEEP THOSE LASH EXTENSIONS LOOKING FLAWLESS

  1. Shower before your appointment. We recommend avoiding contact with water and moisture (that includes work outs) for 24 hours after your extensions are applied. 
  2. Keep your face away from the oven! We know those cookies smell good, but lash extensions are heat-resistant, not heat-proof. Always avoid direct heat on your precious lashes.
  3. Do not apply mascara or use an eyelash curler. You don't need it anyway!
  4. Avoid glycol and oil-based products near your eyes. If these ingredients are in your make up, eye cream, or facial cleanser, it might loosen the glue on your extensions.
  5. Pick up Chrissanthie Eyelid Cleanser the next time you visit DC Lash Bar to clean the area around your eye. It's made specifically to keep eyelash extensions in tip-top shape and has been proven to strengthen lash retention.
  6. Wear a sleep mask at night. Some of us tend to sleep more on one side which might result in lop-sided retention. Throwing on a sleep mask before you go to bed will help protect both eyes no matter what your sleeping position.  
  7. Brush and cleanse lashes daily for the best look.
  8. Get fills regularly. We recommend fills once every week for natural sets and once every two or three weeks for classic, hybrid, and volume sets.

1:30pm: Grab a low-key lunch

It’s time to recharge after all that pampering and shopping. Grab a light lunch at a local French favorite tucked away just up the street, Patisserie Poupon. Indulge in their baguette sandwiches and famous, fresh-baked pastries while dining outside on their ivy-coated brick patio. You might forget you’re not in a cozy café in Europe! We love their chocolate croissants, pear tarts, brie baguettes, and Illy coffee.

2:30pm: Don’t forget dessert.

If you’re craving something cold and sweet after lunch, swing by Thomas Sweet down the street for ice cream with a vintage vibe. Ok, it’s not much of a hidden treasure, it’s a well-known ice cream shop that often boasts a line out the door. But since you’re already on Wisconsin Ave, we wouldn’t want you to miss it. Thomas Sweet serves up sorbets, frozen yogurt, and over 15 flavors of house-made ice creams and blend ends. Visited by past presidents and adored by students and locals, this ice cream shop will be sure to cure any type of sweet tooth.

3:00pm: Stroll through the gardens.

End your day at one of DC’s best-kept secrets, Dumbarton Oaks Gardens. Admission is $10 and the price is well worth it for the breathtaking landscape. Follow swirling brick paths through rose gardens, orchards, and elegant terraces as you walk off that ice cream. Make sure to stop for plenty of photo ops!
