Batting my eyelashes!

I’m definitely not a girlie girl.  I barely wear any make-up, have been known to go a few days without washing my hair and when I get the opportunity to go out I’d opt for a backstreet pub in a pair of jeans and boots.

However, I’ve always fancied having my eye-lashes done.  I don’t know why, as mine are apparently quite nice.  But, when I go to get my nails done, which is a rare occasion, I’m always mesmerized by the therapist’s  eyelashes.

So, when Juliet from Beautylase contacted me because they needed a model as they were accrediting some new glue/technique they use for the eyelashes I jumped at the chance.  I didn’t have a full set but a scattering, not a smattering as I called it, which according to Juliet is what children do with paint!  It only took about 45 minutes, completely pain-free, relaxing in fact and I love them.  I can jump straight out of bed, put some lip gloss on and head out the door as they require no mascara.  No more trying to scrub off yesterday’s mascara before applying more.

The only downside is I wish I had a full set as they would last for 4-6 weeks and as I only had a partial set mine will only last for about 10 days, which would be great for special events like Christmas and New Years.  However, when they start to look wonky Juliet has offered to take off the last few remaining stragglers.

I will definitely be having them done again in the future, maybe for my 40th in a few weeks time.  Thanks to Juliet and the team at Beautylase, St. Albans.
