Lumi, aka Michelle 

"Growing up, I have always been in love with art. After years of working in makeup and set decorating in the film industry, I decided to pursue the art of beauty on a focused level. Being obsessed with lashes since middle school, I fell in love with the artistry behind eyelash extensions which became the outlet for my artistic passion. I put my 100% all when i love what i do, and I believe it shows in my lash work. My goal is to create beautiful sets in a friendly and calming atmosphere, to allow your inner beauty to illuminate. As for my shop, I always loved sharing what tools and supplies I consistently use at my appointments with all my fellow lash artists. I believe there's room for EVERYONE to win and succeed in this industry, so I created this one stop shop with all the top quality lash essentials you need to elevate to that boss babe lash artist we are all capable of being.❤️" - Michelle aka Lumi
