Ok guys! We have been sitting on these images and copy for quite some time now…and I am dying to share them with you!
It’s funny thing – that as we get older we can reflect on the things that came so naturally to us that we took for granted. That’s right ladies – I’m taking about our EYELASHES and EYEBROWS – LOL
How many can think back to high school applying your pink and green Revlon tube of mascara and then proceeding to BEND your eyelashes with an eyelash curler. What were we thinking pressing so hard on a product that was literally hardening our eye lashes at the same time! BUT – it looked HOT so we did it anyhow – LOL
Sadly, as we enter our 40’s our eyelashes and eyebrows just don’t seem to look the same, and if I’m being really honest it was dramatically affecting my morning routine and making me a bit self-conscious.
Calais and I immediately connected and after a few emails back and fourth we had our first date set – and I was sooooooooo excited!
Today, I am sharing with you PART 1 of our 2 part journey with Browcasso.
OH – Their boutique style place is GORGEOUS!!!
PART 1 – EYELASHES
Browcasso has an amazing technician who is trained and specializes in something called YUMI™ – which is essentially a lash lift. “The YUMI™ brand lash lift is an advanced beauty technique for your eye lashes. Designed to specifically boost, lift and enhance your natural lashes. We’re talking seriously length, height, curve and volume here ladies.”

A ton of tints are available for you to choose from to customize the color of your lash depending on your complexion, skin tone etc – and of course on whether you are going for a more subtle look or a “HEY – I’m here and not going anywhere” statement. I personally choose the “HEY”, otherwise know as their darkest black.ff
This Lash Enhancement treatment was founded back in 2008. This is not another Lash Extension – you can totally say bye-bye to that. On that note: TIP* I did in fact have some of my lash extensions still on – SO, be sure to have any and all lashes removed before this treatment, and if you can, even try to grow a little bit of natural lash first before making this appointment.
“Treatment takes only 45 minutes and is very comfortable”. The YUMI™ Lashes effect lasts between 8 and 12 weeks, which is the natural life cycle of an eyelash. As well as brightening and ‘lifting’ the eye area, the YUMI™ Lashes effect has some anti-ageing qualities. YUMI™ Tint alters and boosts the colour of the eyelash so that the treatment enhances the natural beauty of the client even further”.
Upon leaving I was given the most adorable self care kit. The whole procedure was so relaxing and I am so excited to have been shown a whole NEW way to have the look of eye-lash extensions, without eye-lash extensions. The result were truly incredible.
I 200% recommend this NEW technique. Look for BROWCASSO on Instagram @browcasso or connect with them here: BROWCASSO
Thank You BROWCASSO and your whole team for having me and educating us on the YUMI™ lift!

Stay tuned next week, same time – same place for PART 2 – EYEBROWS!
