Big News, Lashes are all the Rage!

Secret DivaEyelashes are hands-down our most favorite fake-it add on. So you may be asking yourself “What effect will lashes have on me?” We like them because they will frame your eyes, highlighting your eyecolor. Lighting in our studio has a tendency to make your lashes look thinner and less prominent, but heavy lashes will draw attention to the eye, and when looking down, in our opinion, looks uber sexy!! Your eyes have the ability to speak a language in its own, so why wouldn’t you want your eyes to say “sexy”? For us this is absolutely a must!

Airbrushing is the easiest way to get a flawless complexion without the ‘caked on feeling.’ What is airbrushing exactly?? Airbrushing is a foundation technique that is sprayed on in microdots. So what is the difference between airbrushing and regular foundation? Well we like to think of it like this, would you paint a piece of furniture with a paintbrush or spray paint? We all know that if you spray paint the furniture it will look more polished and it won’t look as  thick as if you were to paint it on. Same concept with airbrushing. Actually airbrushing will even make your photos look more high definition and professional. Here at Argentina Leyva we say it’s a must!!
