South Tampa Eyelashes
I have been wanting to try eyelash extensions for some time now. I’ve always wanted to see how they would look on me, especially when I wear makeup. Some of the false eyelashes on the market feel heavy on my eyes so I had been delaying it. I was also trying to find a salon with experienced stylists, since I have seen some of the pictures of eyelash extensions online and they don’t always look “natural”.
I came across the owners of Bella Capo Boutique through a mutual friend and I decided to give it a try. Nina and Stephanie are the owners of Bella Capo Boutique, a lash and wax boutique specialized in eyelash extensions, makeup application, spray tanning and so much more! They have been opened in South Tampa since January 2016. I went to see them to try their eyelash extensions and see if I liked them or not. During my appointment, I told them how I wanted the “WOW” factor without looking crazy fake! I can say, they did an amazing job!
The room environment is very relaxing and the procedure is painless. I even took a nap while getting them done for the first time. A full set takes around 1 hour and 45 minutes and touch ups take around 40 minutes. Time went by faster than I expected.
I’ll be honest… the first week after I got the eyelash extensions I felt conscientious and nervous about touching my eyes or even doing my skin care regimen at night. I was not sure if just water would make them fall out. I had to get used to not touching my eyes every five minutes like I always do. So I said to myself, “I love how they look, so I’ll try to see if I can get used to them”. Well you know what… I am so happy I did! They feel so natural and don’t bother me at all. I love how I look every morning and how my lashes look when I put makeup on. You don’t even have to wear mascara!!! *wink*
At Bella Capo Boutique they don’t only specialize on eyelash extensions but also custom spray tanning, whole body waxing, facials, makeup applications and so much more. I have tried everything!! LOL! You know me… I love trying new things that make me look better and help me save some time in the morning when I am getting ready.
I got a touch up on my lashes a week ago and I will continue going there since I love them so much. All the girls are amazing and so much fun. They even showed me how to clean the lashes every morning and how to make them last longer (which I’ve heard from some of my friends, they don’t do at other salons). If you have oily skin then you might need a touch up every 2-3 weeks. For normal or dry skin, touch ups tend to be needed every 3-4 weeks. You can even use Latisse or Lash Boost (from Rodan + Fields) with your eyelash extensions to keep your real lashes healthy and still growing.
Prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere is so chic and stylysh. Their spray tanning looks great on my skin and you can see my makeup in the photos here… stunning!! (Sorry for the close up…lol! You can also see the lashes). I have been to several events in the last few weeks and everyone is complementing me on how great and natural they look.
If you are in the area, definitely try out this local South Tampa Salon. You can even get 20% off your service with my code Bella Mia. Have an amazing week! XOXO
