What happens in Vegas... Gets Published!!!!

Three months ago I took a trip to Sin City, Las Vegas, to collaborate on a super fun, colourful styled photo shoot with a group of wedding vendors all flying down from Seattle. This was defintely my "adult" trip as we stayed off the strip in an AirBnB and bought GROCERIES!!! Seriously! I didn't stay out all night in my 4inch heels and make a pit stop before heading back to the hotel for a sandwich at Earl of Sandwich either. #Adulting 

Today, it's been PUBLISHED in 100 Layer Cake an online wedding blog. Check it out HERE.

It was a long 72hours but with an amazing team we managed to capture the essence of the famous Vegas elopement. I went with a smokey eye makeup and bolder lip colour to compliment the Las Vegas surroundings since it was an elopement style wedding. Anything traditional was out the door! 

Day 1 was at Fun City Motel, catching golden hour, when sunlight turns magical, or as Urban Dictionary describes it as "The time between 5:30-6:00 eastern time when lightskins take bomb as f*ck pictures" (Thank you for the definition) The photos defintely were bomb as f*ck pictures! 

 

Day 2 was a very, very early start (4:30am) as we needed to get to Seven Magic Mountains before we start sweating in the desert heat. And before it gets too busy from other tourists to shoot. If you haven't been to Seven Magic Mountains, I highly suggest you check it out, it's only 30min south of the Las Vegas strip. 

After the day is done we CELEBRATE!! Making our way to the Vegas strip to go eat at Mon Ami Gabi at the Paris Hotel for their famous Steak Frites and of course, we must have wine. This was by far the most fun, most intense work trip I've been on and I can't wait to do it all over again in October with these Fab 4!!

What IS a YUMI™ Lash Lift?!???

Summer is just around the corner (finally!) in the Pacific Northwest and that means, boating, camping, hiking and basically not wearing a ton of makeup. If you're anything like me, I only wear tinted moisturizer, blush, curl my eyelashes and apply at least two coasts of mascara.... oh, and not to forget, I HAVE to fill in my eyebrows otherwise I look like an alien! 

I've tried eyelash extensions and I love how they look for the first week.... then I literally start to pull them off! I know, I know, I'm not suppose to pull them off, but I get annoyed at them. I'm a stomach sleeper, eye-rubber, and I love to stick my face under the hot shower, all of which are a huge No-No when you get eyelash extensions. Not to mention, you have to get them filled every few weeks, otherwise they start to look a bit spidery. I never made it that far along because I pulled it all out of my eyes! 

Then I tried the YUMI™ Eyelash Lift and Tint. Oh My Goodness... it's AH-MAZING!!! I loved how it looked on my eyelashes that I thought to myself “I must learn how to do this so I can have EVERYONE feel the same way I feel about my eyelashes as I do now”   I'm proud to say I'm a certified YUMI™ Eyelash Lift Technician! 

What IS a YUMI™ Lash Lift and Tint you ask?

It's an enhancement of your natural eyelashes without the use of harsh chemicals, formaldehyde or parabens. Seriously, who wants that near your eyeballs?? The best part is that it will last 8-12 WEEKS, the natural cycle of your eyelashes. For me, I loved how I can wash and rub my eyes, sleep on my stomach and my eyelashes looked like I had curled and used mascara on them. Instant eye lift without doing anything!!

YUMI™ Lashes supplies to make some magic on your eyelashes

How does it work?

I glue your eyelashes onto a silicon pad, each customized for your own eyelashes.  They get sculpted and separated at the root, making sure each eyelash is straight and not clumped together. This part gets a bit science-y; a series of patent technology cream products gets applied on your eyelashes and does its magic. It targets the keratin in your eyelash hairs so it can be manipulated and stays like that. Side note- because of this process some people are calling it a Keratin Lash Lift.  After I wipe off the magic cream, I use the YUMI™ brand of tints and tint your eyelashes, giving it a mascara-like look. Once I clean up your eyelashes, I give it a sweep of nourishing mascara and give you the mirror.  Every single one of my clients first words are "Wow!" or "Oh my God!" and they stare in disbelief that what they are seeing are their OWN eyelashes. With those types of reactions from my clients (and myself) when first looked in the mirror, wouldn't you want to try it for yourself??

Before and After the YUMI™ Lash Lift and Tint

Before and After the YUMI™ Lash Lift and Tint

Yes, there are other eyelash lift brands out on the market but I personally chose to train with the YUMI™ brand because it is the first company to create and patent this technology in 2008. That's almost 10years ago!!!!! The YUMI™ brand is proven to last a couple weeks longer based on my instructor's first hand experience AND what other brands are advertising (4-6 weeks). It's kinda like buying a Channel purse vs a knock off on the street markets in Asia. It looks and feels the same, but eventually, it will start of fall apart. Trust me, I've bought my share of knock off purses!  

If you are interested in the YUMI™ eyelash lift and tint or want to know more about where I got trained, please email me at - artist@lisungoh.com  You can also check out more before and after photos here: https://www.lisungoh.com/yumi/

Meet your new West Seattle Makeup Artist and YUMI™ Eyelash Lift Magician!!

Hi!

My name is LiSun, I am a professional makeup artist, YUMI™ eyelash lift technician, Girlie-girl, wife and Fur-Mama!! Very introverted, until you get to know me or I've had a couple glasses of some kind of booze, is someone pouring me a glass of wine yet? Goofy and sometimes a bit blonde...well maybe more then sometimes! Welcome to my very first blog post. I will share with you, as a working makeup artist, tips, tricks, product knowledge and anything I think is useful to create a beautiful you! 

I was raised in North Vancouver, Canada and moved to this side of the boarder 1.5years ago. Time has flown by so quickly since I have been married; moving to Seattle was my new adventure in my life and settling down in West Seattle felt natural as it reminded me of where I grew up.  

As a professional makeup artist, at first part-time, I finally made the decision to go for it full-time when I landed in USA - new country, new life, new ME! My love of makeup started when I was 6 years old and it never stopped.

I have expanded my skills and I am now doing the YUMI™ Eyelash Lift and Tint.  What is this??  Well, let me tell you, once you have tried it you will be hooked! I sculpt your own natural eyelashes over a silicone pad, apply the product, let it sit, tint your eyelashes and in less then 1.5hours you will look like you have curled and applied mascara on them! The best part... is that it will last for WEEKS! Yes, weeks!! Stay with me and I will be doing a blog post about the lift soon. 

I wish to share the same love and passion I have for my profession, my favorite products I use; not only on my clientele but myself as well. I love making someone feel beautiful about themselves not changing how they look but truly bringing out their natural beauties that lay within.
