I got an eye lash extension at Kosmetik Jessica in Liestal and I absolutely love the result. So without further ado I want to show you how she did it and wanna tell you a bit more about my extensions.
eye lash extension at KOSMETIK JESSICA in LIESTAL:
This photo was taken right after I had the lash extension done. My eyes were a bit watery but that was the only negative side affect that I have experienced. As I mentioned in the video, I went back and had a full set applied. In the video and in the photo below there are only a few lashes added. I naturally have nice lashes and I hardly ever wear mascara but the thing that I had to do every day was using the eye lash curler. My lashes are long but rather straight. So in my case the eye lash extension gives me this lovely lift and curled lashes.
Jessica is able to extend your lashes for up to 2 mm. In case you think that this is not enough then she is not the right person for you. but actually 2 mm makes quiet a difference. In fact the extension is not about length, its about volume, lift and curl. I acheived all of this with the 1 to 1 eye lash extension method. Jessica glued a fake lash to my natural lash. There is also the fan lash extension where she glues 3 smaller and thinner lashes to one of your natural lashes. The 1 to 1 is more casual and not as dramatic as the fan lash or also called 3D lash extension.
The lashes fall out, either together with your natural lashes or sometimes they can also fall out without your natural lashes. I kept almost all the lashes that fell out. As you can see in the photo below, there are lashes with natural lashes and some without. Every morning I brush my lashes with the spoolie brush that I got from Jessica. I really recommend to do that at least once a day in order to keep the lashes nicely and separated. The lash extension feels very natural, this really surprised me. I can still rub my eyes and I can clean my face like I did before. The only thing to change is to not use any oily makeUp remover around the eyes. Jessica is using GL Alessandro lashes and that’s also where she has learned how to do extensions.
In case you are from Basel or Basel-Land and you are thinking about a lash extension then you should def check out Kosmetik Jessica’s website. Besides the eye lash extension she also does sugar hair removing and brow shaping with the oriental thread method. At the moment she is going to school to become a cosmetician. So soon she will be able to do lots more.
Audemars Piguet presented a new series of moving image and photographic works by Dan Holdsworth at the Audemars Piguet booth, designed by Sebastian Errazuriz, in the Collectors Lounge at Art Basel (16 – 19 June 2016).
As already mentioned, the lounge is designed by Chilean born, New York-based artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz. The theme of the stand is based on ‘Water and Ice’. And when I asked him what was behind the idea of the design he answered:
“whats incredible, because of the snow and the ice Le Brassus for long time it has always been isolated. so for six to nearly eight months a year they were blocked out. so this notion that you are completely isolated was actually what gave them the time to develop their technology. they had nothing else to do. so this problem becomes actually something benefitial for them and for us. why not bringing back that driving force as a concept.Originally we wanted a qiant slab of ice inside this space. Audemars Piguet was interested, Art Basel was like: no way it is happening. so we started thinking how do we symbolize this idea in a more economically responsible way.”
The result of his idea is what you can see in the photos below. Sebastian created the design of the booth around the theme of ice, water and winter in the Vallée de Joux. I personally like the ice tank that you can see in the first photo the best. I can stare at it forever!
Another thing that I found out at the press conference was, that the design is inspired by one of Sebastian’s childhood memories. The memory of water dripping into a bucket and the distinct natural rhythm that this caused. Taking inspiration from the visual design codes of ice formations and the beautiful snowed winters in Le Brassus and the Vallée de Joux, the new collectors lounge features a more spacious and luminous design language that resonates with contemporary creative energy. The design reflects the clean purity of nature and the presence of time.
I really like the new Audemars Piguet booth and I could relate very much to the ideas behind the design by Sebastian Errazuriz. Above and below you can see the art deco inspired lamps that fit perfectly into the whole design of the lounge.
WHO IS SEBASTIAN ERRAZURIZ?
Artist, designer and activist Sebastian Errazuriz has received international acclaim for his original and provocative works on a variety of areas and disciplines. Tackling everything from political artworks to giant public art projects, experimental furniture to product design and women’s shoes to motorcycles, Sebastian’s work is always surprising and compelling, inviting the viewer to look again at realities that were often hidden in front of their own eyes.
in case you did not know about him you should def check his website and see his amazing design pieces. one of my favorite is the soup plate that does not need to be tilted to get the last couple of spoons of soup. another cool piece, that I like a lot, is the chop stick that has a fork on one end and can be either used as a fork or broken into chopsticks. besides these he designed really cools shoes but have a look for yourself >> http://www.meetsebastian.com
Inside the booth designed by Sebastian Errazuriz there were a very limited amount of watches in display and the beautiful art works by Dan Holdsworth. Unfortunately I did not have time to visit the gallery in ZH but I did see some of his work online and inside the collectors lounge.
ABOUT DAN HOLDSWORTH AND HIS ARTWORK
The details of a new series of photographic works by Dan Holdsworth has been premiered on the Audemars Piguet booth in the collectors lounge at Art Basel’s show in Basel. These photographic pieces explore the unique geological formations found in Audemars Piguet’s home, the Vallée de Joux in the Jura Mountains. By referencing the epic timescales by which these rock formations were formed, the works will invite the viewer to reimagine their relationship with time.
Holdsworth’s new moving image work will be accompanied by photographic pieces exploring the unique geological formations found in Audemars Piguet’s home at le Vallée de Joux. In parallel with the new works presented by Audemars Piguet in Basel, Holdsworth’s solo show, A Future Archeology, will open at SCHEUBLEIN + BAK, Zurich on 1 June, running until 2 September 2016. The exhibition will premiere new works from his Continuous Topography and Spatial Objects series, exploring the landscape of the Mont Blanc glacier using the same pioneering technologies to map out the fine detail of the region.
