Me and Puraj

Batting my eyes way too much these days because I’ve finally had the opportunity to try out these darn lash extensions everyone keeps ranting and raving about! I’ve had way too many friends talk about how amazing they are and how natural looking they are. I’m still trying to get use to such a dramatic look, but wowzers it’s amazing, and what a complete transformation it is! There are so many great places in Raleigh to get the procedure done, but I chose Idolize Brows and Beauty at Sutton Square. Aside from the super crisp, clean and calm aesthetic of the shop, the brains behind the beauty, Mrs. Puraj, shop owner, and lash tech Hilda, were the absolute best and are who made this visit possible! I had a warm welcome upon arrival and Hilda made this two hour procedure seem like a piece cake. She was friendly and approachable and we chatted pretty much the whole time because God knows I can’t stand silence.

Keep scrolling because I’m in the giving spirit and have a special surprise for you!




Puraj, Me, and Hilda



It’s been just about a week with these lashes and the fall out has been minimal and there really is no maintenance after the first 24-48 hours. The lashes just simply fall out on there own as your natural lashes do. I know, laying down for two hours to get your lashes done seems totally insane, but honestly, it’s so worth. With these lashes, I don’t feel like I even need to try too hard with lots of eye make-up. My small eyes seem so much more dramatic now and really gives my face a more defined look. For those who have never had this procedure done, I will say it’s totally painless and you really don’t feel a thing.  For the first 24-48 hours after the procedure you’ll have to stay away from moisture (water, saunas steam) and heat. You’ll also have to refrain from using any type of eye make-up, oil or creams until the adhesive has fully settled in. After that, you can be free as bird. For those wondering, the lashes last about 3-4 weeks. Not bad, huh? You know what else is not bad, discounts on this amazing service. So head on over to Idolize Brows and Beauty because their offering a full set of lash extensions for $99.00 when you mention that I sent you. To sweeten the deal, their offering 50% all eyebrow threading services to all first time visitors. Treat yourself this holiday season to the Idolize experience like I did. Don’t forget to tell them Deidra sent you! And if you really love the service, shout them out on Google and Yelp and drop a few comments about your experience in the comment box on  this blogpost.

Happy Holidays!
