If I have one single easy as hell but will totally change your life forever tip, it is to invest in some killer eyelash extensions. I normally don’t suggest spending extra bucks when you don’t have to, but lash extensions will seriously change your life. They make you look like Miranda Kerr without having to put on any more than a dusting of mineral powder & a swipe o’ cherry chapstick. Talk about major time saver in the mornings (and my ADHD, sleep adoring self LOVES anything that saves me time in the wee hours).
Okay so this post isn’t fully about how to have supermodel eyeballs- it’s more importantly about one of the babest babes I know who happens to be an artist when it comes to lashes. Like…seriously ridiculously phenomenal. In addition to making the world more beautiful, she is also running her own (very) successful business, making BIG plans for the future, and is one of those people that is so genuinely sweet and good hearted that I have never once heard a single bad thing about her (and visa versa- she has nothing but good things to say about everyone she encounters). A real down to earth girl’s girl who also happens to be gorgeous, effing hilarious, and one badass independent single lady with big goals on the brain.
Oh yeah, and she is my business partner partner in crime for a very exciting new venture that I can’t wait to announce. Hint: it has something to do with videos, the ridiculous adventures of life in your twenties, and a Los Angeles production company. I. Can’t. Wait.
Without further ado, have some cake with Mikaela Giacomini…

What Originally Inspired You To Do What You Do? I jumped in feet first to the spa and salon world right before graduating college. I had little to no experience with hair and or eyelash extension because makeup and fashion were more my thing but after spending time with a handful extremely talented women I wanted in. I love the idea of creating drama with makeup and eyelash extension were the icing on my metaphorical face cake. I wanted to learn how what and why and then I wanted to do! 3 years later here we are!


How Did You Get Started? I shadowed one of my co-workers through a full set and a fill and then I went with her to a seminar about a new technique. After gaining the knowledge from her I took a licensing class through an amazing company (Lash Out Loud) online and then begin practicing. I slowly began to gain skills and confidence and find my groove in the lash game

What Kind Of Backlash/Problems/Crappy People/Challenges Did You Face/Are You Facing? Clients will always have their own expectations and ideas of how a service should turn out regardless of the possibility of the outcome actually being possibly. Handling the delicate conversations and explanations of what my service is and can provide can be tough. Not everyone has the same foundation to start with. Lashes are different for everyone and therefore the look will be unique to you.

I leave my jar of organic coconut oil in the shower and right before i turn off the hot water and enter the freezing world outside i lather up with my oily friend. Not only is the a natural moisturizer but you smell like a tropical island all day long!
