City Pulse

By Anna Vognsen

‘Tis the holiday season once again! Renowned for parties, family time, and getting far too little rest to prepare you for Aunt Hilda’s perfume or your boss’ wacky dance moves at the company holiday party. Odds are at this point your undereye bags are looking bigger than Santa’s sack of toys and you’re feeling about as attractive as Rudolph after an especially rough Christmas Eve.

Time to give thanks to Townhouse Spa for their new godsend, Uptown Girl lash extensions. In just an hour and a half you can be transformed from droopy and tired to bright and sassy with their line of oh so glam eyelash extensions. Completely different than your standard drugstore fakes, Uptown Girl’s eyelashes are applied individually with a non-irritating adhesive glue and last for 6-8 weeks.

Ada Ayala, my fantastic extension specialist, spent two hours crafting my gorgeous new peepers, leaving me bright eyed and ready to face the rest of the holiday season. At a relatively pricey $400 for a full set these aren’t an impulse buy, but for an event or a mid-season pick me up they might be just what the doctor ordered.

For all of you lucky BN readers, we’ve teamed up with Townhouse to offer 20% off of your eyelash extensions now through January 31st. Simply mention BeautyNewsNYC when booking your appointment and you’ll be guaranteed to impress your future mother-in-law.
