"Eyestarr Will Flutter Your World"

Ciao bella,

Eyelashes are an important part of your face! A quick make-up is lip color, mascara and brow powder/pencil and out the door we go. Lately I've been getting lazy on the mascara. It starts to feel heavy by afternoon. But then when I look at my mirror without it I can see bland Mary. I had to change something to make life easier and still capture the glamour gal that I am.

I decided to make an appointment with Andrea Starr on Newbury Street here in Boston. I had read a raving review on her individual eyelash extensions she adheres to your own lashes. Walking into EYESTARR, an Eyelash and Brow Bar Boutique was a pleasure. I felt comfortable immediately with Andrea's gentle and calm professional manner. Her modern '40s decor included framed photos of Marilyn Monroe (my very fav), Lucille Ball, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and more! There were comfortable chairs to wait and loungers when your lashes are applied!

After two weeks I have just felt so "Hollywood" everyday with my new lashes that just sweep up so elegantly! Easy to care for with a few lengths to choose from, Andrea is an expert in her field. She is also in the process of developing her own line of products including an eyebrow enhancer that will strengthen and grow in a fuller brow.

Now I just don't have to spend all that time waving around that mascara wand. I will enjoy them as long as my lash cycle lasts. That's just about four to six weeks. After one day I felt like they are my very own. Must remember not to rub or pull at them. Cleanse your face with a face cloth as usual and cleanse your lashes with Baby Shampoo. Spray them with water once a day to keep them hydrated. So easy!

So for a satisfying cosmetic pick me up try EYESTARR Lash Boutique on Newbury Street and put some Hollywood glam in your life!

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
