Julia Trigila honed her lash-extending and cosmetics expertise at the Houston-based headquarters of NovaLash itself. The elite, naturally curved faux flutterers adhere to lash lines with medical-grade Platinum Bond adhesive, which can last as long as six weeks, though Julia requests a three-week appointment to determine rate of eyelash growth and double-check for overlooked third eyes. Beyond increasing flutter frequency, Julia schools clients with valuable lessons in the delicate art of makeup application.
The makeup-application lesson, which teaches both day and evening techniques, also allows clients to gussy up for a night out or practice putting together their bridal visage. During each 90-minute lesson, the makeup maven reveals the tools, products, and processes that decrease dark circles beneath the eyes and increase the appearance of smooth, radiant skin. As she weans clients off their reliance on concealer and stick-on earrings, Julia shows students how to blend foundation and successfully hide blemishes. Afterward, the cosmetician determines the correct color palette for complexions so that faces can glow with healthy, natural-looking color. A mini workshop helps clients shape and color their eyebrows into a configuration that flatters their face and appeases their tweezers’ endless hunger.
Face by Julia
At first, Julia Trigila focused solely on lashes. She studied extension work during a career at NovaLash and took on enough clients to become a full-time specialist. On the side, however, her love of makeup artistry drew her to fashion photo shoots and appointments with brides-to-be. She wound up at the Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics in an endeavor to combine her passions, graduating with well-rounded cosmetic expertise and a renewed respect for skincare.
Today, Julia delivers full-on makeovers at her eponymous business. She still performs eyelash extensions in addition to brow shaping and waxing. Her makeup sessions stress the value of a bright, clear canvas, prioritizing a custom application of primer that suits each client's skin type. Julia shies away from overwhelming faces with too much product or an overabundance of racecar flame decals. Instead, she aims to accentuate features with naturally luminous looks for casual wear or wedding events. She also hosts lessons for clients who are curious about applying complementary colors or subtracting blemishes, age spots, and fruit-punch stains from their complexions.
