The eyes are the window to the soul, so the eyelashes must be the curtains. Over the years I’ve experimented with a few different things for my lashes – tints, extensions, falsies, and occasional curler use. One thing I’d heard about and never tried until recently was the lash lift! This is where Rachel Mackwood comes in – she’s a makeup artist and beautician who offered to lift up my lashes for me. I visited her salon for a complimentary lash lift and tint, and have been absolutely blown away by the results.
I recently wrote a post about my experience of getting eyelash extensions. It’s been a wee while since then, so I wanted to do a follow up and answer some reader questions about my lash extensions. I’ve answered questions about lasting time, effects, and behaviours to avoid. I’ve also given my advice for how to find a good lash technician. For disclosure purposes – my lash services were complimentary for the purposes of a social media post, and I’m just blogging about it because I found it so interesting.
False eyelashes are becoming more and more commonplace, but I have always been a bit scared of using them. A friend recommended Social Eyes Lashes to me, so I decided to give them a whirl. Social Eyes is owned by Karissa Pukas who has a popular beauty YouTube channel, so I figured she knows a thing or two about eyelashes! In this post I’ll be showing you Tease and Glamorous Shorty lashes by Social Eyes Lashes, and sharing some of my advice for how to apply false eyelashes.
People quite often ask me for recommendations for various beauty services, such as hair and nails. So, today I’m rounding up a list of the places where I go for these services. This post will likely only be useful for those of you who live in Auckland, but maybe some of you will be visiting in the future, so it could come in handy. If you want to know the best place in Auckland to get your makeup done, or a wax – then this is the post for you!
