Genetics bestowed upon me wimpy, ho-hum lashes… as well as then made me so clumsy that I couldn’t apply false ones to save my life. Oh, the wonderful eyelash irony!
Enter the Shu Uemura lash bar, aka false eyelash nirvana, where the lashes are cost effective as well as the visit booking process couldn’t be easier.
Whether you’re trying to find a bit lash extension, or you’re aching for crazy, over-the-top-lashes to overcompensate for lots of years of eyelash inadequacy (*ahem*), Shu’s got you covered.
Sak i punkt:
Notice exactly how fabulously non-wimpy these are. I done died as well as went to eyelash heaven, ladies!

Would you believe a trip to eyelash heaven is really quite darn affordable? From a Shu lash bar, all you do is purchase any type of pair of their false lashes, which run from $16 to about $50 a pair, as well as a Shu makeup artist will apply your new lashes (and response any type of concerns you may have about them) for free!
Gratis rules, however I understand you work difficult for your money, so to stretch those dolla-dolla-bills a wee bit further, here’s a excellent money saving idea I got from Jeccica, a Shu Uemura makeup artist as well as manager (and all around rad girl) at the San Francisco Fillmore store: get a pair like false Eyelashes Luxe ($20) as well as ask the makeup artist to cut one of the lashes in half.
Ask the artist to apply each of the cut halves to your outer lashes only. It’s a basic method to get a sexy, yet natural-looking eyelash boost. save that uncut lash for future use. cut that poor kid in half as well as you’re great to opt for a new pair. It’s like getting two sets of lashes for the cost of one, yah?
As if that wasn’t great enough, the icing on the cake: Shu’s lashes are likewise reusable. just take care when you eliminate them (gently pulling them off), as well as store them in their original packaging to keep them clean as well as safe. now don’t you feel clever?
Shu makes setting up a lash bar visit easy. A week before you’d like to visit, stop by or phone call your nearest Shu Uemura counter as well as ask to routine an appointment. A lash application takes about 20 minutes.
On the day of my appointment, I satisfied up with Jeccica at Shu’s Fillmore store early on Saturday morning. We began by going over the type of lash look I wanted, as well as she showed some samples as well as explained the process.
I had grand plans for grocery buying after the lash bar, so the rational part of my brain whispered, “Choose something demure. You’re going to Safeway to get bananas,” however the wanna-be-eyelash-diva in me snapped her fingers as well as responded with, “Girlfriend, you ain’t right here for subtle!”
I ended up going for broke as well as selected the brown Feather false Eyelashes ($25), hand-crafted from feathers to look like butterflies. Oh, purty.
First, Jeccica lined my upper lash line with a black liquid eyeliner pen. While cute, lining the upper lashes serves a functional purpose, too. If you look carefully at a pair of unapplied false lashes, you’ll notice a thin band at the base. A black liquid liner assists to hide that band.
Next, to blend my genuine lashes into the false ones as well as provide the completed product a a lot more sensible appearance (*ahem*), Jeccica curled my lashes with a Shu Uemura eyelash curler, complying with up with a coat of Fiber Xtension Lengthening Mascara in black.
Gently pressing with a thumb on the base of each lash pops them out of their bit cases. I assumption I have smallish eyes since the lashes I selected were a touch as well long for my upper lash line. No issue for Jeccica — with a scissors, she cut away the excess from the ends with the longer feathers to make them much better in shape the shape of my eyes.
Now, taking the eyelash adhesive in one hand as well as one of the false lashes in the other, Jeccica used a thin line of Eyelash Adhesive glue to the band at the base of the lash. The glue applies white however dries remove after a few minutes.
She set the lash carefully into location on my upper lash line…
After repeating the exact same process with the other lash, we were done. Woot! Wimpy lashes no’ mo’!
I understand these eyelashes make me look a lil’, um, nutty, however believe it or not, these lashes were not the craziest ones in the store!
These hand-crafted beauties are from the premium (read: pricy as well as restricted edition) false lash collection. Fra topp til bunn…
Premium brown Feather false Eyelashes ($50) – hand-crafted brown feather eyelashes influenced by the butterfly

Og selvfølgelig falt jeg på samme måte som med disse drag-queen verdige, ultra heftige premium strålende gule falske vippene …
Legg merke til at Lil ‘hvite fjær dukker ut på slutten? Seriøst, kjæreste. Varmt! Mens de brune jeg sportet absolutt brakte glamen til dagligvarebutikkløpet mitt (du burde sett Create Clerks avtale med da jeg spurte ham om bananer), på min neste se jeg snagket disse gule kjærlighetene. Kanskje jeg blir enda mye mer eventyrlysten før jeg sjekker ut mine andre “hipster” -toler, også også biblioteket, vaskeri, og bokhandelen, lol!
For å oppdage Shu Uemura -kjøpmann nærmest deg, se nettstedet Shu Uemura, som viser både oss så vel som verdensomspennende steder med telefonnumre (for å rutine avtalen). Hvis du er i San Francisco Bay Area, kan du stikke innom Fillmore Street -butikken i San Francisco. Selve butikken er fantastisk så vel som funnet i et av mine foretrukne samfunn i byen (stopp for kaffe på en av de nærmeste kafeene), så vel som makeupartistene er erfarne så vel som oh-so-vennlige.
Det er meg med Jeccica, min foretrukne Shu Uemura makeupartist!
Shu -butikken er også et land med leppestifthimmel!
Arbeidet har vært hektisk i tillegg til å sparke rumpa i det siste, så jeg må gå inn tidlig i dag, men hei, jeg vil overleve. Jeg håper værtilstanden holder seg sol, siden jeg vil velge en virkelig lang løp!
Noen få av oss her har pratet om å jobbe med kondisjonen vår. I går kveld, mens jeg sovnet, trodde jeg på å kjøre det kommende San Francisco Bay til Breakers Race i mai. Det er en 7-mils løp med byen. Jeg har gjort det før, men hjelp meg Jeebus! Siste gang var for mange år siden. Nå virker antatt å løpe 7 miles gal for meg, med mindre jeg blir jaget. Imidlertid får vi se. Ideelt sett påvirker dagens prøvekjøring meg.
Jeg håper at hva du gjør i dag er morsomt i tillegg til at du føler deg bra.
