I hope you have all had a lovely weekend! I’ve recently re-joined a gym and the lady who runs the gym had lovely eyelashes. I asked her if they were extensions and she said and that she did them herself. She told me she got them from a local salon supplies shop and I thought I’d give them a go.
I personally have paid £40 to try lash extensions from a salon, I thought they were very expensive but thought they’d be worth it for going on holiday last year. How wrong I was… within two days the majority of them had fallen off, I may as well have thrown my money away, and ended up wearing strip falsies anyway.
So I went to the salon supplied shop and bought the lashes, the glue and the remover. For the three items it cost me just under £12 – clearly a lot less than a salon.

To apply you remove the lash with tweezers then apply a pin size amount of glue onto the bulb then lie them onto your own lash (without touching the eyelid) and leave to dry. They were fidly to attach but here is the look I achieved…
As you can see ladies, these lashes are VERY long! I wear glasses so they are a little annoying. There seemed to be only one size available in the shop so I just picked up a box. I did trim one of the middle ones as they just looked stupid. I wore them out for dinner last night with mascara on and they did look nice.
On my right eye I must have applied too much glue to one of the corner lashes and when it had thoroughly dried, it was scratching my eyelid so I used the remover to take them all off.
I did like them and thought they were worth the money, however, to achieve a more natural look I thought it best I buy some different sizes. I happened to go through Boots today and seen that Eyelure do a set with short, medium and long, so I am going to give these a go next week!
If you have the patience girls, I’d recommend you just do them yourself, it really isn’t worth wasting the money at a salon!
