A few weeks ago I had my first eyelash extensions by the wonderful Esme Winterflood http://esmewinterflood.co.uk/
I have a bit of a thing with eyes, I don't really like people coming near them, so I was quite apprehensive beforehand. But I soon relaxed and let Esme work her magic for about an hour and a half.
I told her I wanted lashes that didn't look ridiculously long during the day, but still glam enough to take me through to the night. The perfect length, she applied extensions onto every single lash, even the little tiny ones in the corners. The effect was amazing and I couldn't stop looking in the mirror.
Esme told me that they would last well for around three weeks and then may start to look uneven as the extensions fall out naturally with your real lashes. Well, it was three weeks ago yesterday and they're still going strong. I'm completely used to them now, and I really don't want to go back to my boring, short, natural lashes!!! I think I'm addicted to extensions already.
They're not cheap, but really worth it if you have a special occasion or holiday coming up. They really do last, as long as you look after them (don't put anything containing oil near them), and the time saved doing very basic make-up in the morning is incredible.
I'll keep you updated but I may have to book in for a 'top-up'! And next time I'll remember to take photos to show you!!
