I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

YOUNIQUE LASHES

YOUNIQUE LASHES

A friend of mine recently introduced me to Younique 3D Fiber Lashes. For those of you who aren't familiar with Younique, it is an affiliate cosmetics company. My eyelashes are probably the shortest in my family. My husband, two boys and little girl all have eyelashes longer than mine. I have tried Latisse before but I thought it was kind of annoying applying it every night and it made my eyelids burn a little, I also didn't see much of a change. And once you stop using it, your eyelashes eventually return to normal. So I am always interested in hearing about something that will make my lashes longer. But that I don't have to do all the time, just when I want those longer lashes.

The Younique 3D Fiber Mascara is a quick three step process:
1. Apply a layer of your normal mascara and let it dry. Then apply the Moodstruck Transplanting Gel to your lashes.
2. While the Gel is still wet, apply the Moodstruck Natural Fibers (which look like tiny little hairs, but are green tea fibers)
3. Apply a second layer of the Transplanting Gel to secure the natural fibers to your lashes.
Repeat with the Gel and Fibers as many times as you want until you get the desired look.

When I took this picture it was after only the second time using Younique, since then I have gotten better at the application processes. I am able to make my lashes even longer without worrying about clumping. The results are immediate and noticeable.

I have read online that some reviews say that the mascara causes spidery eyes, and I can see how that could happen. It's all about finding what works best for you, I have done it where I made my eyelashes crazy long, because I kept applying the gel and the fibers. But after a while it did start to look a little creepy. So I stick to just one or two applications of the fibers. It's a great alternative to fake eyelashes if you want a bit of a more dramatic look. Go here to learn more about 3D lashes or to purchase, my friend would love to help you-and she knows way more about it than I do anyway :)
