I love both… as most women do. Everyone has different taste and likes different types of both. Then enter the love/hate relationships: I love/hate fiber mascara & I love/hate sugar.
Maybe I am NOT the best judge of fiber mascara because I create natural, perfect lashes daily with lash extensions. I work as a makeup artist who specialized in natural beauty.. but then again I am originally from NJ where more is always better!
I love the natural application of fiber mascara. It works amazingly! But I believe it needs to be washed off daily (call me crazy) and should never be applied to lash extensions (unless you want to break off lashes).
I love chocolate, I would love to eat it every day. Heck, I wish I could walk around with a drip of it in my arm all day (you know the world would be a better place.. especially once a month 😉 ). But I don’t like the weight it puts on my body eating it every day. Or the lows it gives me after a binge of sweets (and the belly ache).
So here’s the issue.. I am horrified when I see spidery pictures of any type of lashes and any chocolate sundae picture make me crave one for days (especially from Serendipty3 in Vegas – my fav Instagram follow). I believe we are all entitled to our options and thank goodness everyone is different or we would be in a crazy episode of the Twilight Zone where everyone looks the same (Season 5 Episode 17)!
This is the “How to” for spidery lash application:

Please share your thoughts with me on which look you prefer and why. And which type of chocolate is your favorite? I can agree to disagree. 🙂
Happy NEW YEAR! I would like to introduce myself to you. Some of you are new and I would like to say HI!:
I’m Michelle Bouse. I am a reformed Jersey Girl (born & raised), who followed her heart & moved to California in 1998 – but I’m not your typical California girl. I am a retired professional dancer over 40 who’s second career is Beauty. I love giving back, inspiring others, chocolate is my weakness and I’m addicted to tea & newly found love – Yoga.
I have the gift of seeing beauty in everything, everyone & making people feel good.. and feel it’s my job to share.
2015 is a BIG Beauty year for me.. I am celebrating 15 years (what?! how is that possible) as a industry make-up artist and 10 years (is this even possible) as an esthetician. I can’t believe it. These days people call me a beauty expert.
Last year I was on The Doctors tv show twice, my second Lifestyle Lift commercial aired as an expert with Debby Boone and I finished my final certification for Volume Lash extensions. One of my clients won her second emmy, a bunch of clients got married, had babies and appeared all over TV! I also expanded the boutique with certifying Linda as a OUIDAD Curly hair expert, carrying the product line exclusively and introducing the boutique closet, carrying clothing. (Not to mention my Boys and Girls Club team won a trip to Nationals for their 4th year in a row).
One of the BEST beauty introductions was THE BEAUTY BOOKENDS with my beauty best friend & fellow celebrity make-up artist, Dia Dibble. We started shooting short YouTube videos for anyone over 40 looking for beauty tips. We have had a wonderful response and requested live appearances.. so we will continue the videos every month in 2015.
But why should you stop by here and say Hi? (hmmmm) Well, I like meeting new people, like to talk and have a bunch of beautiful things to share. I hope to see you here again and would love to hear about your beauty successes, questions and inspirations.
Here’s to a New Year filled with beautiful possibilities..
I love lashes. Linda loves hair.. together we ROCK CURLS!
If you are not into lash extensions creating gorgeous natural curls.. Or maybe you have great natural lashes.. You NEED a Lash Curler. This is the ONLY one you will ever need!
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
I have used this for years! I have one at home and one in my makeup kit and they have each lasted me almost 15 years! (great beauty investment)
1. Start at the base of your eye with curler.. fit into eye pocket and gently pulse curler a few times.
2. Continue to open and close curler and walk up lash – gently squeezing all the way up to increase curl.
3. Straighter lashes can get a great lift by focusing curl just at the base of the lash.
4. Change the silicone pad when curler starts cutting into pad and loosing bounce.
5. Never use curler on lashes with mascara applied. You can break your lashes.
Curly hair needs extra TLC to tame the curls. Everyone’s curls are different.. that is why sometimes it is frustrating to try and figure out what’s best for your hair. This is where we come in.. meet OUIDAD.
We have a line with products for ALL types of Curls! Let Linda style your hair and teach you how simple it is to get these gorgeous curls that will last for days! (Picture above is 3 Ouidad products & a diffuser.. that is all!)
Dry curls, we have moisture.. frizzy curls we have control..
Linda and I LOVE our curls and we LOVE this line. (Certified Cutting Techique coming in March)
