Lash Idôle Mascara


How Zendaya Uses Lash Idôle Mascara Creates the Look of Long, Lifted Eyelashes

Learn how to make your eyelashes look longer with Lash Idôle mascara. Our no-clump mascara creates lifted eyelashes and the look of lash extensions.

Lash Idole

Want to learn how to make your eyelashes look longer without lash extensions? You’re in the right place. Lash Idôle lash lifting and volumizing mascara can deliver lifted looking eyelashes and lasts up to 24 hours, offering a lash extension effect in just a few coats. With an innovative brush designed to reach every single lash and a lightweight gel formula, this mascara helps deliver the look of long, lifted and volumized lashes instantly — without any clumps or smudges. Keep reading to learn what makes Lash Idôle mascara stand out.

The Lash Idôle Formula

The Lash Idôle volumizing mascara formula was especially designed to be lightweight and comfortable. The lightweight gel formula easily glides onto lashes and has a buildable effect for a customizable look. It also keeps the look of lifted eyelashes; the formula is so lightweight and contains less wax than a traditional mascara, so it won’t weigh lashes down throughout the day. Infused with white tea extract, the lightweight gel formula also keeps lashes feeling soft and supple. Last but certainly not least, the formula makes for a no-clump mascara that also resists smudging throughout the day..

The Lash Idôle Mascara Wand

The Lash Idôle mascara wand is a curved brush that features 360 micro-bristles, which include 90 unique bristle sizes. Both the curved shape of the brush and this huge variation in bristles make it possible to coat every single lash, even the smallest ones and those along the bottom eyelid, from root to tip. Together with the formula, it helps create the look of long and lifted eyelashes.

How to Apply Lash Idôle

You can use Lash Idôle mascara to get the look of lifted eyelashes instantly, or even create a lash extension effect, depending on how many layers you apply. (Even better: The no-clump mascara makes extra coats easy to apply.) Here’s how to apply it:

  1. For fortified* lashes, apply Cils Booster Revitalizing Lash Serum.
  2. Prep with Cils Booster XL Eyelash Primer to help boost volume, length and curl.
  3. Hold Lash Idôle wand horizontally near lashes, with the curved side facing upwards.
  4. Apply mascara in an upward swiping motion for the top lashes and bottom swiping motion for bottom lashes.
  5. Layer as desired to achieve a lash extension effect at home.
    * Based on self-reported of 100 women in a consumer study.

The Lash Idôle Results

While Monsieur Big mascara gives fluffy volume and length and Hypnôse Drama volumizing mascara delivers buildable drama, Lash Idôle creates the look of lifted eyelashes instantly. Thanks to the innovative micro-bristles, it also builds out volume and length for an effect similar to lash extensions — no trip to the salon required.

Plus, the lightweight formula feels comfortable and resists both smudges and clumps — a must for a lengthening and volumizing mascara. Perfect for work and weekends alike, Lash Idôle is bound to become a staple in your makeup routine.

A Letter of Encouragement, Unity & Forgiveness

 


In light of a difficult year, I felt compelled to reach out to you with some words of encouragement. Little did we know what was coming this year, or that none of us could have anticipated the extent of the hardships we would endure.

 

Some of us lost our jobs, some lost businesses, but most sadly, some lost their lives. My heart goes out to anyone that lost a loved one. I have prayed for you even though I don't know you.

 

Upon reflection, I wish to remain hopeful even when times are rough. Faith is the belief in things not seen, even in the hardest of times. Yes, it's hard. Things will get better, and I believe each of have lessons we have learned through all of this.

 

So I ask you today, to understand the end of this rough time is in sight. We have almost made it through...Let's live like everyday is our last, love fully and forgive completely. No matter the color of our skin, or the gender we are, GOD LOVES YOU! He feels every tear we shed, he knows what our greatest fears are, and he sees us...in all our humanity...he sees us. The good, bad and ugly of our human nature.

 

That love is unconditional. The true, endless love only GOD has!

Every country, every nation, every religion, every single person he holds in his hand. He calls for us to love one another in unity. Not division, or judgement, but the togetherness we were made for. They will know we are christians by our love! As the song says, and I want you to know YOU ARE LOVED! YOU ARE ACCEPTED! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

 

As we start the new year, let's remember that we are all called to LOVE ONE ANOTHER..

 

As we embrace this CHRISTmas...let us remember the true meaning.

 

Let us get back to the natural, loving spirits we were intended to be.

 

I continue to pray for HEALING FOR CORONAVIRUS, UNITY FOR MANKIND, FORGIVENESS FOR OTHERS that have wronged us, and COMPASSION for those HURTING IN THIS WORLD.

 

And make the WORLD A BETTER PLACE!

 

Merry CHRISTMAS..From me to YOU!

 

May GOD BLESS YOU!

Fashion 101 Video Series- Be A Fashionista in 4 Easy Steps


 Fashion 101 Video Series

Let's talk about style....The kind of style that makes your man's head turn and your momma proud!
We all view Fashion differently, but I'd like to make FASHION FUN & EASY! 

In this Video Series, I start with the Basics, and walk you through the Complete Style Strategy I have used for years in serving my Retail Customers.

Step 1- Find Your Signature Fashion Style

We all have 1 signature style that we love to dress most of the time. But let's go a step further, and beyond the 4 main styles we are familiar with, I have developed 7 Fashion Styles that I've seen most women tend to embrace.

Goddess, Classic, Trendy Diva, Natural, Sporty, Biker Babe, and Bombshell. Each have their unique characteristics, and we dress more than one depending on the occasion.

Watch Video Below to Learn More About the 7 Fashion Styles


Now you can see what all the Style Personalities are, and the examples of how to dress each one.
This can be the funnest part of dressing everyday, if you embrace it!

I have also written a FASHION QUIZ, that determines your Signature Fashion Style. You can Take the 5 Minute Quiz Here!


>>>Take Quiz<<<

Step 2- Outfit Coordination

Once you have found your Style Personality, it's time to Create a Styled Wardrobe for your Signature style, and any Fashion Styles you dress on different occasions.

Watch This Video to Learn How To Create an Outfit using my Exclusive "Cupcake Coordination" Method. It makes outfit coordination soooo easy and fun!



Now that you have learned the art of outfit coordination, it's time for accessories...or The "Sprinkle" layer of our outfits!

There are many elements to the accessory category, so I will share with you the main ones Below.

Step 3- Finding the Right Jewelry

First let's talk Jewelry. We all have different choices, but there are some easy tips to always remember.

Watch This Video below to Learn More about choosing jewelry.



I also have an AWESOME Video where I share WHICH JEWELRY that goes with each FASHION STYLE! This makes picking the right jewelry for your Fashion Style fool proof!

Step 3- Handbag Accessories

Styling an outfit with a HANDBAG is essential in finishing an outfit. There are a few tips you may have heard before, but some new ones for you here in this VIDEO!



There are so many options for HANDBAGS out there! Use these tips to CREATE YOUR HANDBAG COLLECTION that matches the 7 Fashion Styles you dress everyday.

The Final Video in this Video Series will be "SHOE ACCESSORIES", and will be published on YouTube Next Week!...So Stay Tuned!

Step 4- Building Your Wardrobe

Now that you have all the STYLE ELEMENTS NEEDED , you can start to build your CORE WARDROBE. Using the knowledge that I've shared in these Videos, clean out your closet, and LET'S BEGIN!

CLEAN OUT ALL DRAWERS AND CLOSET, THEN SEPARATE YOUR WARDROBE ITEMS AS FOLLOWS....Tops, Pants, Shoes, Belts, Skirts, etc... till you have ALL THE PILES ON YOUR BED!

To Learn More about how to do this...Read my Blog Post "CLOSET CLEAN-OUT" Here

>>>Closet Cleanout Blog Post<<<


Now that we have a clean slate, we can start to build our Signature Wardrobe. We have separated our clothing items into categories, so we can see at a glance, what we own. This is the 1st step.

HERE IS A CHEAT SHEET FOR ALL THE
 WARDROBE ELEMENTS FOR EACH OF THE 7 STYLES!

How To Start An Online Boutique 5 Easy Steps

How To Start An Online Boutique

What a bunch of Red Tape!...The last few months have been a challenge for sure, but one thing IS for sure....It's worth every minute!.

Months of endless e-mails. Hours of product listing, day after day of planning, and note taking. The process was a long, drawn out ordeal, but the final challenge is almost over.

I'll walk you through my step-by-step system I discovered along the way. Mistakes were made, for sure, but all the better for you, since I worked through it, and want to share the process. If you are interested in starting an ONLINE BOUTIQUE, read on.


 

Step 1- Do Your Research

Research is a must before you begin. Decide your NAME, IDEAL CLIENT, AND YOUR USP (Unique Selling Proposition) What makes you special, and sets you apart from the crowd?

Decide business type, inventory, drop shipping, collaboration, etc..I'll explain more about this later in this blog post.

WATCH THIS VIDEO ABOUT HOW I DID THIS...


Step 2- Organize Inventory

This is a time consuming process. Take good notes, keep those notes organized, and do one thing at a time. Keep track of all your orders, to make sure you aren't over ordering. Start small, and work up from there.

Manage the invoices, and create a filing system, or an online bookkeeping for those invoices. This is the only way to keep track of what you're spending. Go back through the orders if you need to, in the future, to adjust the nest order, depending on sales.

Step 3- Product Listing on Website


WATCH THIS VIDEO THAT SHARES MY PRODUCT LISTING IDEAS


Product Photography is the alternative to vendor photos. There are many videos on YouTube that shares this process. So check it out. Drop shipping also uses vendor photos, ao this process isn't needed, unless you want to.

HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF THE LOOKBOOK ON MY WEBSITE









Step 4- Launching Your Boutique

Now that the backend is set, its time to plan a LAUNCH! You decide what that means to you. Video's need to be made, going LIVE is a must, and Planning out your Social Media is advisable.

Because of Covid-19, we are planning a PHOTO SHOOT, along with a VIDEO FASHION SHOW. I've thought of a way to do this, wearing masks to and from the locations, and meeting with 1 model at a time. People are usually 6 feet from each other in a photo shoot anyway. With the help of Video editing Apps, I plan to create a LAUNCH VIDEO. A VIDEO FASHION SHOW is Coming!





Step 5- Sell, Sell, Sell

This is the moment you have worked so hard for. Marketing your business is your life blood! There are many ways to market your online boutique, and I'll share a few ideas I'm using.

Canva Pro is an app or desktop page that I use to edit my images. The PRO VERSION allows you to take backgrounds off your images, and provides FREE VIDEO CLIPS, AND PHOTOS. Check it out!
There is a Free Version, and a Pro version. The paid version is $19.00 a month.

Videoshop App is what I use for creating Video's with Text overlays, music, and so much more! There is a FREE VERSION, and a PAID VERSION. The paid version is $3.99 a month.

I have a Social Media plan, and I learned it from Jasmine Star. She is a Photographer, and Business strategist. She has SOCIAL CURATOR, that offers A Social Media Action Plan Each Month, along with her Photos, Caption to use each month, and a PRIVATE FACEBOOK GROUP where she teaches MASTERCLASSES that help us market our businesses. Her Monthly Subscription is $49 a month.

I plan out my Instagram on PLANOLY Free Version, and there is also a paid version. This App lets you upload all your photos, and rearrange them so they look good on your Instagram Feed.


MOST OF YOUR MARKETING WILL BE DONE ON SOCIAL MEDIA

- Facebook & Facebook Ads (Facebook Helps you)
-Instagram SHOPS (Google all the ingo)
-Pinterest Strategies- (Must for a Boutique)
-You-Tube (Videos of your Products)
-Linked In

These are all a must in my opinion.

I listen To 2 Boutique Podcasts, and they are..."Boutique Hub", with Ashley Alderson, and The "Boost Your Boutique" Podcast with Emily Benson. Each of these have tons of resources, plus masterminds and trainings, so you can grow your boutique!

I hope this Blog Post has been helpful. If you have any questions, shoot me a comment below, and I'll reply with any resources I have.
