It’s been 22 weeks now since I’ve been using LATISSE® for my eyelashes and eyebrows. I wanted to give you an update…
I recently received this comment from my son: “Mom, your eyelashes are freaky long!” At the time I was wearing a little mascara and also had curled them with the eyelash curler.
Regardless, this is a long way from my albino-like eyelashes 22 weeks prior. [See picture below]
I have obtained a second bottle of LATISSE® so that I can continue this daily application.
Having followed Karine’s story on cosmetic tattooing, I am especially drawn to her early discussion on eyebrow tattooing to create a more enhanced frame to the eyes. I too was thinking about this early on but have first decided to try for a look that involves growing my eyebrow hair darker and thicker. I will do this with LATISSE®.
If you remember previous pictures, this picture to the right will look familiar to you. My pre-LATISSE® look (and pre-blepharoplasty, in fact).
Regarding the LATISSE® application, initially I applied only the leftover liquid on my eyebrows after using most of it on the eyelashes. They did grow a little thicker and darker on the inner edge. I also experienced a little itchiness.
In the last month I have been applying one entire drop per eyebrow, paying more attention to the outer edge. Now I am actually noticing that my inner eyebrows are getting a little too bushy (even for me) so I’m focusing specifically the outer edges.
I’m finding it necessary to pluck my eyebrows (for shaping) more often now. Also, when I wake in the morning they are messy to point where I find it necessary to smooth them out with a little vaseline. [See picture to the above for this just-woke-up look.]
After plucking them and smoothing vaseline on my brows, they have definitely helped to enhance and frame my eyes, bringing out the green.
