“She lowered her lashes until they almost cuddled her cheeks and slowly raised them again, like a theatre curtain. I was to get to know that trick. That was supposed to make me roll over on my back with all four paws in the air.”
So, how do you get these big, gorgeous lashes? These are semi-permanent eye lash extensions and they are fabulous! I've had them done twice at my local salon and I can honestly say they looked beautiful.
But you have to know what you want, you need to look it up and know your stuff. Know how you want them to look and don't be afraid to say so. My first appointment left me very disappointed, but the second time I demanded more lashes be put on as I was paying £50! The beautician went back in with the tweezers and glue, I got up to the mirror to Sexy, Seductive Lashes.
If your a bit squeamish with your eyes watch the video first, because your eyes will be closed for a long time with tools and glue playing around. When you first get up your eyes will be glued together and will take a bit to get them undone.
But from an optics point of view, you need to make sure you clean them daily, just gently with some cotton wool and warm water. As the extensions are fitted directly onto your natural lashes, dirt and bacteria can get stuck and build up. This can cause conjunctivitis which could leave you blind. I'll spare you an image, but if your curious beware google images wont be a pretty sight!
You also need to be careful when you sleep and when you wear glasses with these as they will bend and fall out!
They should last between 14-60 days depending on the salon brand and how you care for them. Both of mine lasted around 40 days.

Tip of the day - If £50 is too much for you and its just for a night on the town. Get down to your nearest £ Pound land. It may sound cheap, but they actually stock very good lashes. Which should last you two or three uses (I got about 4 from mine). They usually stock a good variety from natural, to lengthy to party (glittery and with butterflies!) Bargain.
