Anyone who knows me knows I am not a super girly-girl, but I did get excited about this: lash extensions. As someone who can never seem to keep mascara on, this is a revelation! I haven't had this done yet, but our faithful friend Andrea Hoyt at August Veils, lived to tell the tale of meeting with Midori Debow, lash expert:
"She learned her trade in Japan over 10 years ago. She relocated here to Portland with her husband...Midori is very meticulous and truly stands by her work. She even checks back with you the next day to make sure there are no harsh reactions to the adhesive.
Midori decided to use a style of hair that had a natural upward curve to it. The shape of my eyes would make the lashes point downward. What I liked was the way she thoroughly explained the process so I understood what she was about to do.
Asian women, hell, all women, rejoice! Raccoon eyes could be a thing of the past!"

It would be so nice not to worry about crying off your mascara during the wedding...and they last for several weeks before you need a refill, so you can enjoy your fluttery lashes on honeymoon as well.
Thanks Andrea, for being our guest reviewer. As soon as we can get down there, we will! I'm sure there are more great places doing lash extensions in Portland -- please post a comment if you are in the know.
