Q: Are We Completely In The Dark With Our Eyes Open Or Do You Use Blindfolds?

We also use a mask that has eye cavities that allow you to comfortably open your eyes underneath the blindfold if you choose without rubbing your eye lids. These masks also are best for not disturbing our female guests make up.
