90 second Beauty Routine with Lash Extensions

Eyelash extensions make getting ready so much easier and faster! In this quick video I created, I show how just some tinted moisturizer, blush and lipstick have you ready for the day in 90 seconds or less. 

LashStyle Info: For the lash design, I wanted to emphasize Liz's gorgeous eyes with lashes that have dimension and texture so they aren't overly structured. I created a subtle eyeliner effect yet kept the tips light, fluffy and soft. The goal was to emphasize her eyes without overpowering her natural beauty. 

The same day I wanted to shoot a little video outside. For the video below I did add just a little bit of eyeliner to the bottom lash line still keeping to a minimalist beauty routine. 

Technical difficulties

Hi LASHlovers!! 

I'm having some trouble with my email configuration. I am working on the issue and should have it resolved by the end of this week. I need to stick to lashes and outsource my computer help.  I have many emails to respond to and feel awful for the delay however I will be in touch. I will be replying and returning calls in order received to remain fair to everyone. 

Thanks so much for your interest and mostly your patience. 



Kelly Ripa and I chat eyelash and eyebrow extensions

So I went with Kevin to go and see Live! with Kelly and Michael. It was supposed to be part of Kevin's birthday gift (he is a huge fan of Kelly and Michael Strahan is one of Kevin's favorite NY Giants of all time). Well we had a total VIP experience and it was more than I could ask for. We got to sit in the first row. Hugh Jackman was a guest (swoon) and Kelly gave me an amazing shout out on live TV. I was not expecting that at all. Took me by complete surprise and while both Kelly and Michael were asking me questions I was in an instant whirlwind. My brain is saying "OMG I can't believe this is happening right now, I'm sooooo not prepared for this" at the same time its saying "Please don't stutter" and also at the same time " Try and stay cool, calm and collected" along with "Is what i'm saying making any sense" and back to "OMG is this really happening" and lastly "Where am I supposed to look?" as a camera is about 3 inches from my face. So while all this is going on in my brain my hands and legs are quivering and in a NY minute we go to commercial. Whew!!! Exhilarating, exciting and awesome all rolled into one. 

Then I'm thinking that today was supposed to be all about Kevin and then this happened. But being the supportive awesome boyfriend that he is he was loving it all right there with me. He was thrilled to chit chat with Michael AND get his autographed jersey when we went back stage. 

After the taping completed we went backstage to Kelly's dressing room had some awesome chatter and all of a sudden Kelly told me that we are going to chat a little for Fashion Finder. What?!?! even more excitement! So the whole brain fart started again. Luckily I was able to get a few words out and we went on to talk a bit about lash extensions and even brow extensions. (I will be writing about brow extensions on another blog post. 

Thank you Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan for impromptu AWESOMENESS!

Here is the clip from the aired show, totally did a poor job recording my TV. Please don't judge me too harshly, I'm amazed anything other than uuuuuuuhhhhhhhh came out of my mouth. And the lighting for the first row is terrible. That's my story and I'm sticking to it ;) 

Kelly Ripa loves her eyelash extensions

I am not one to lash and tell, especially with my high profile and celebrity clients. I like to assure privacy to my clients but sometimes my clients like to share with the world their experience. I have the continuing  pleasure of lashing the absolutely stunning Kelly Ripa. Check out what she has to say here: 

For the 2015 Oscars I styled her lashes a bit bolder and more voluminous than her day to day lifestyle sets. 

Ria's LASHstyle recipe for Kelly: 

Over 96 different types of lashes blended with classic and volume techniques with the point of emphasis being the center of her eyes. 

Lengths: 6,7,8,9,10,11,12mm

Diameters: 0.05, 0.06, 0.07, 0.10, 0.12, 0.15

All about lash extensions...

Welcome!!! There is so much lashy goodness I wish to share with you all. For the past 7 years I have been keeping a notebook full of topics and ideas I wish to share with fellow lash lovers. I have been so incredibly busy with lash applications that I never followed through with that desire. It's time to change that.  

For my 2014 New Years resolution I made a commitment to myself to explore my creativity further and finally get my blog going. Well, its October and I am excited that another year hasn't passed and that I will actually fulfill one of my many resolutions (still have plenty to work on like : eating healthier, exercising, and all that good stuff). A little late but better than never.

What to expect? I will be posting many photos and videos of various lash applications. Going into great detail about lash extension style options and types. I will answer all the frequently asked questions about eyelash extensions. There will be plenty of tips and tricks to keep your lashes looking great and staying healthy and SOOO much more.  I will also be introducing a site dedicated to lash professionals (look for that in 2015). 

All the lashes and photos on my site are my own creations unless clearly marked otherwise. I love creating beauty AND capturing it. I hope you enjoy.

Let's keep in touch, feel free to comment or email me :)
