Invest in a great eyelash curler and never leave the house without wearing mascara and lip gloss. – Mom

Everything I know I learned from my mother Rule #: 4935

I am reminded of this daily when I look into the eyes of my daughter or my husband. They both inherited the most incredible thick lashes. Me? I have I don’t have such luck. My mother was the queen super-long, false eyelashes, very Dynasty, very dramatic. Subtle was something she was not familiar with and not certainly not a part of her vocabulary.

Thankfully, there is a new beauty sheriff in-town to assist me in the quest for perfect lashes.

Take a peek inside Orange County’s premiere beauty salon, LashSpot Spa, which caters to the application of longer, more voluminous, (and extremely natural looking) lashes. With a staff made up of licensed estheticians, LashSpot Spa uses only premium silk or mink lashes and has a menu listing trends from lash extensions to lash perm, lash tint, Swarovski crystals application and waxing services (for both your face as well as “down below”.)

Mummy would’ve weeped tears of joy and be crowned their tippy-top extra-extra-extra-special VIP the moment she walked through the door of LashSpot Spa in Costa Mesa. At my appointment, I met with Maureen who was responsible for my lash treatment. She escorted me into a very cozy treatment room and she talked me through what was going to happen over the next two hours. During this time we had a great consultation and we discussed what style I was ultimately hoping to achieve. We quickly agreed that since I was a noobie we should start more on the glamorous; yet conservative side. This way I’d be immediately comfortable off the bat, notice a difference, and since the extensions do take some initial getting used to, this way I could gently ease into it. Needless to say, she chose the perfect length. Perfect.

For almost two hours I had to lie there with my eyes shut. Oh. My. Goodness…this was nearly impossible. I never knew I was so fidgety. The thought alone made me a bit anxious, but I just concentrated on my breathing, the soothing music and reminded myself how this was a good thing – I wanted to be there!

Before I knew it Maureen told me she was finished. Eeeek…I could hardly contain myself I was so excited to see what they looked like. As I sat up she handed me a mirror and I could not believe the results, the improvement and the incredible difference they made. I’m fairly certain I yelped something like, “ARE YOU FLIPPIN’ KIDDING ME?! THESE THINGS ARE AWWWWWWWWWESOME!!!”

  1. Yours look very natural! I got some late last year (not from LashSpot) and I swear they touched my eyebrows! They were SO long! They might have even touched the inside lenses on my sunglasses!

    • They are lasting a very long time also! I’m really hooked. Everything about the whole experience was great. Women should try it at least once!

  2. Ohhh they look gorgeous Nicole! I agree with Wendy, they do look very natural! How fun…and beautiful!

    • Best part? Waking up every morning and noticing the difference! This is definitely the latest and greatest beauty necessity!!!

  3. LOVE! I wish they would open something like that in VEGAS!! *hint*

    Your mother was beautiful! Love that photo of her. Your eyes look fabulous!

    • Now that’s a great idea!

      Thank you. This was my mother’s “casual” look. This photo was taken during your average Saturday night dinner at our house. I was so adopted.

  4. Wow, those look fantastic! I have been tempted to try them, but ended up going the Latisse route instead. I have to say, Latisse works, but it’s an ‘apply every day’ thing, and can get pricey. And while great results, nothing like what yours look like. I’m curious though – part of what made me nervous to try them was because I had heard that if you rub your eyes a lot (I do – all the time) you can end up with twisted lashes, that point in weird directions. Any thoughts on this? Did you ever have to take time to fix them so they went in the right directions? Oh, and how long did they last?

    • Great questions. I think mine may have lasted longer than others. I went a solid six weeks before I noticed I needed a touch-up. I purposely went conservative, so I didn’t find myself playing with them at all. They did shift after I toweled dried my face after washing it, but nothing crazy. I simply took a toothpick, separated them and it was done and back to normal in a few seconds. Nothing more than a minute for both eyes.They went back easily.
