Hi! I'm Maria, creator and founder of Glue-Free Falsies™ and GFF Cosmetics Inc. A little bit about me: I am a former pediatric registered nurse and I love running, travel, audiobooks, and being outside. I live on an acreage in Southern Alberta with my husband Jeff, our five kids, two cats, and two dogs. As you can imagine, beauty hacks are my jam; anything to help me get ready in a snap and look like I've had eight hours of sleep! To this end, Glue-Free Falsies™ was born in the summer of 2017, when I was looking for an alternative to traditional eyelash extensions. My lash lady (my sister) was about to have her first baby and take some time off work, my eyes were progressively reacting worse and worse to eyelash extension glue, and I found it really difficult to get to my eyelash appointments every few weeks. I wasn't about to give up having great eyelashes though! I bought some false eyelashes and some tiny magnets and began fiddling with different ideas. My first few designs were major fails but I kept at it and finally figured out a design that was practical and looked awesome. I made myself a pair with no intention of selling them. I wore that first pair everyday for seven months! As with so many entrepreneurial endeavours, friends and family began requesting my Falsies and it quickly turned into a business and a fulfilling creative outlet. I love helping women feel beautiful and confident. And yes, I wear my Glue-Free Falsies™ every. single. day. Thank you so much for stopping by!
