(The best t-shirt!)Make-up, hair and eyelash extensions all under one roof and right in the middle of the hottest neighbourhood in Toronto - Queen West. BlushPretty was recently named one of the best Make-Up Artists in Toronto. With a VAST crew of both make-up and hair artist, you can find BP artists all over the GTA every weekend. Often, they are making brides beautiful and bridal parties camera ready. FCL made sure to put our listening ears on when it came to the needs of brides...when you share space with the best in the business it makes sense to pay attention.
(Steph of BlushPretty hooking me up!)Here's what we learned: Brides are super organized...so we make sure to get back to them right away. They might have a few questions regarding the extensions....we are always happy to help. By the time they come for their extensions they are exhausted...we keep blankets handy and keep it quiet. Finally, weddings are expensive and every little bit saved helps.
(Awwwwwww)With that in mind, FCL is happy to offer BlushPretty brides $50.00 off a full set of silk eyelash extensions (reg $150) at the Toronto studio 777 Richmond St West. What could be easierthan going to the same place to get your bridal lashy look that you went to have your bridal hair and make-up trial done? I know, it's brilliant...hence #BBLU Love & Lashes
"We liken our face oil blends to a lush garden. All of the stunning plants and beautiful aromas can make for some amazing skin care. At Pelle Beauty™ we've captured this – plant based goodness and aromatherapy all wrapped up into one beautiful treatment. They're a vacation for your skin."
If affordable skin awesomeness wasn't enough of a draw to try out Pelle Beauty, then maybe the idea of a Toronto based female owned business with customer service out of this world might be of interest?. I placed an order from the skin ninja's and with everything going on I didn't double check to ensure that my shipping address didn't default. Well, it defaulted and my package ended up at the wrong address...I sent an email to Marnie asking about the order. Bing bang boom - another order arrived no questions asked AND with a gift inside.
It's without a doubt, Pelle Beauty are skin Ninja's and if you didn't know now ya do...you're welcome!

( One of fav clients at FCL Toronto - Maddie)Ummmmmm hells no! No one has time for that.
( Linda is vacation lash junkie and comes to see us twice a year before she leaves)Another misconception is that the extensions will not hold up in salt water, that is 100% inaccurate...these babies are not a problem at all in the ocean. The only problem is that others may confuse you with a fantastic mermaid, rising from the sea looking perfectly pulled together.
(Sommer - owner of FCL, hanging out poolside)Chilling poolside is not an issue, if you're one of those ladies that likes to dunk your head under to cool down....dunk away. Chlorine is no problem and the extensions will bounce back as soon as they dry off. One flick of your nails and your "wake up made up" look is back in business. Love & Lashes
"SO thrilled with my lashes!!! not only with the application of the lashes, but how at ease you feel when you show up! Cannot WAIT to get creative with lashes, now that I’ve gotten a taste for them I want even longer and more luxurious! I haven’t worn make up in years, and mascara always seems to make my eyes burn. That and the fact that I used to wear waterproof mascara meant it was on until it wore off, now I get that look for weeks and no eye irritation.Yes I’m rambling can you tell I’m excited about my new extensions?
Sorry was this not the place to brag about my new lashes? 🙂 From the booking to the apologetic phone call asking to push the appt forward by a measly 30 minutes, I wish you folks did hair and nails and home renovations too! EVERY business I have dealt with could take lessons on customer service from your team."Love & Lashes
(Henna, one of FCL's stunning brides)Here's the big question: Should you get your first set of lash extensions right before the wedding day and if so how many days before your trip down the aisle? The best advice and something we pretty much insist on is having your first set done 3 weeks or so BEFORE the wedding day. Why? If lash extensions are a new service for you, then you have no idea what to expect or how to care for them. Some brides are a ball of stress before the wedding, things may not be according to plan and/or just a straight up case of nerves.
(Tara, one of FCL's beautiful brides)Rather than adding more anxiety, it makes more sense to come and have the full set done 3 weeks before the wedding and book a relash a few days before your set to work your goodies up the aisle. Congratulations on your upcoming and with your extensions...you are FIERCE honey! Love & Lashs
