Batting your eyelashes can express an array of emotions, from coy admiration for a crush to frustration over studying in a strobe-lit library. Let eye adornments speak volumes with today's Groupon to Carolina Eye Candy in Summerville. Choose between two options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of waxing services.
- For $59, you get a X-traordinary full set of eyelash extensions (a $125 value).
Elizabeth Williams, Carolina Eye Candy's proprietor and sole aesthetician, thickens emotive eyelashes and rids 14 facial and bodily expanses of unwanted hair. Clients can keep rogue follicles at bay with quick and effective waxing services. Brow ($15), chin ($20), and bikini waxes ($35) prep bods for trips to the beach, and full facial treatments ($40) keep human emoticons as smooth and manicured as a freshly shaved smiley-face button. Although low-temperature Cirepil wax teems with anti-irritant ingredients, each waxing appointment begins with a consultation to ensure guests' comfort.
Alternatively, patrons can opt for X-traordinary eyelash extensions to add style and volume to everyday eye follicles. Following a thorough shampooing of natural lid locks, two full sets (120 lashes each) of faux lashes adhere to ocular whiskers on each peeper, with surgical-grade mortar. Eyelash application can span 90 minutes to 2.5 hours, ensuring optimal placement for lash lines that are as voluminous as a surgeon's collection of scalpel-shaped fountain pens. The studio suggests scheduling eyelash-extension appointments at least 48 hours in advance.
Though Carolina Eye Candy sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We specialize in eyelash extensions services, we also offer brow shaping, spray tanning, skincare and makeup application. Standing out from the competition comes naturally because we are passionate about eyes, and we strive to give our clients the best design they desire because our services are artistry.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My desire to enhance the natural beauty immediately was what inspired me to specialize in eyelash services, all while giving our clients a relaxing experience.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the before and afters, and seeing the joy when a client smiles in the mirror to show them their desired outcome.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
When I did a client's lashes after she went to another place, and the lashes didn't look or feel right, I suggested we remove those lashes and start with a brand new set. When she looked in the mirror after the service was done, she dropped the mirror, grabbed me and gave me a hug! She said to me she didn't know they weren't supposed to feel uncomfortable, and when I did her lashes she couldn't even feel them!
