You've seen lash extensions before, but you've never seen them like this. Joanna Keller is taking the lash game to a level you didn't know even existed. She is making major waves with these ombre lash extensions that are sure to be a showstopper. And lucky for you Vancouverites, this talented lash artist and owner of Joanna Keller Beautique is based in Vancouver, meaning your lash dreams can become a reality.
"I have been experimenting with colourful lashes since about 2012," says Joanna. One of her inspirations for this innovative trend? Ombre hair. "Women with a more classic style or more corporate jobs still gave the ombré trend a go — it is more subtle but still super fun! So I figured that if it worked with hair, it would be similar with the lashes."
If you're looking for a reason to add a pop of colour to your eyes, there are plenty of chances for you to experiment, especially with summer coming. "These lashes are going to be a huge hit for festival season, and just summer in general," says Joanna. "Girls love the extensions for camping as they can look their best without applying or washing off makeup." Who wouldn't want to be able to skip their makeup routine in the morning? Sign us up.
If you're more into the natural look or worried the lashes will be too stand-out, don't fret! These lashes may still be for you. "What's nice about the ombré lashes is they really pop in the sun and look more subtle inside," says Joanna. "If you need to have a day at the office, you can cover the tips with our black extension mascara, then wash it off when you want the ombré to show again."
Although ombre lashes are great for summer, why not add a pop of colour to your eyelashes now to brighten up the spring season? This new beauty trend is a fun way to change up your look. "I encourage girls to try things if they are curious, even if it's different or " weird," says Joanna.
You'll never know if you like something until you try, so what's the harm? "Beauty is supposed to be fun and ever changing, so just go for it," recommends Joanna. "If you really dislike something, it's not permanent so we can remove it (but we know you'll love it)."
