­Beauty Review – Lash Lift

I’m not usually a jealous person but one thing my brother has that I don’t really irks me…good eyelashes! His are thick, long and beautifully curled whereas mine are short, straight, quite sparse and blonde meaning they are practically invisible without mascara.

Of course, there are certain things you can do to overcome this. I am always trying new mascaras and tend to go for anything that offers volume or a curl and I do have eyelash curlers but find them a bit of a pain to use on daily basis. I’ve also looked into lash extensions in the past but have always been put off by the idea of having to be careful with the cleansers and mascaras I can use plus they can look a bit patchy if you don’t get them ‘topped up’.

I have a really good local beautician and have been treating myself to a monthly facial or massage with her and after discussing my eyelash woes with her, she recommended an eyelash tint and lift. I always have an eyelash tint before holiday anyway so an extra eyelash treatment seemed a good idea.

After an hour or so of having various different potions on my lashes, I couldn’t believe the difference – I hope my photos do this justice!


My lash tint lasted about a month but the lash lift lasted a little longer – maybe 6 weeks or so. It made any mascara I wore look amazing and really opened up my eyes. I also felt more confident going make-up free and just loved this treatment.

I’ve already booked in to have this done again and would highly recommend it to any other ladies who aren’t blessed with naturally amazing lashes!
