I have been pondering over eyelash extensions for a few months now, my mum first told me about them and I did some internet research to discover that I desperately want them. I hate to say it but I am one of those girls who sticks on fake eyelashes to go out, and if I wasnt so bloody lazy I would wear them to work too… just the hassle of sticking a strip on every morning… NAH. So after I had a good month at work and got some extra commission so I decided to treat myself too a set of extensions of my own.
I googled eyelash extensions in Farnham and discovered the lovely Farnham Eyelashes (the wonderful google AdWords led me to her). I did ring around a few beauticians who offered this service, but after a couple of chats on the phone Tara was the one who was warm, friendly, confident and said all the right things to make me book an appointment with her.
Before you have eyelash extensions you have to make sure you have removed all your eye make-up, as skanky as it sounds I have worn mascara and eyeliner everyday for the last three years – so to ensure there are no traces of make up is hard work.
When I first went to Tara’s house I was super nervous, she was lovely – she took the time to explain the process fully to me, she explained how the lashes sit on your naturally and how she works with your natural lash to make a thick natural look – and that was exactly what I was going for – I wanted those lashes that people look at and think ‘wow, are they real?’
And that was definitely the result I achieved.
After two hours of Tara putting individual extensions on each of my lashes, I’m not gonna lie, my bum went numb and forcing your eyes shut for that long is a strange sensation – but the result was worth it, Tara has given me incredible thick lashes that are going to last for three weeks.
I am chuffed with the results and am deffo addicted – what do you think?
I wish the after photo was better quality… but yeah, you can see they are lush.
