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.
I have wanted eyelash extensions for years, but had never taken the plunge. My natural lashes are okay, but not amazing. I also loved the idea of always having amazing lashes even when I’m not wearing makeup, especially because I don’t wear it to work most days. Recently I got the opportunity to have a complimentary set of lash extensions from Mai Beauty Lounge. Michelle, the lady behind Mai Beauty Lounge, reached out and offered me a set of lashes in exchange for promotion of her new lash services. After working as a nail technician for years, she recently qualified in the application of eyelash extensions. The lash set she applied on me is gorgeous, and I also learned a lot about how it all works. Keep reading for more about my experience, as well as some important information about eyelash extensions.
