Aw thank you! I change it way too often but I am sticking with the colour it is right now, I really like it but oh god, I need to get my roots done so badly haha!
Thank you so much!! They were £50.00, which is amazing considering how long they can last! :) x
I posted about a week ago that I was thinking about getting some eyelash extensions put into my actual eyelashes to make them a little longer, so I could stop wearing mascara and false eyelashes.
I got them done on Wednesday at a little place in Glasgow’s merchant city ”White & Barr” hair salon and in with that, is a place called “Fingers”.
I wasn’t really sure what look I was hoping to achieve, I wanted a more natural everyday look instead of a full on “clearly not my real eyelashes” sort of look.
Annemarie, the lady that was doing my lashes was lovely and explained what happened and what look would suit me best. I decided to go for some sort at the inner corners of my eyes and medium towards the end, I didn’t think the long lashes would give the look I wanted to achieve.
As you can see, not very long, just average lashes without any make up on them, also had some little spaces that false lash glue has taken out some of my own.
It took around 70 minutes for the lashes to be done, all very relaxing and I could have fallen asleep (I was lying down on a bed with a blanket and it was only early, surprised I didn’t haha!)
As you can see from the photo, you can see the difference to the length dramatically! They just give a much nicer, natural look to my eyes that isn’t fake in anyway. They feel just the same as your normal lashes, you just have to be really careful and gentle with them when cleansing ect. Should last up to 4-6 weeks if I look after them and I’m really happy with them, just what I wanted -no need for mascara!
Let me know your thoughts!

I think I am going to go a little bit lighter :) x
Nope, I didn’t get the chance cause I was working and on my lunch I didn’t fancy going out in that snow! Gona pop in today though :) x
I can’t say I’ve been blessed with long or particularly thick eyelashes, so for me on a night out, a pair of lashes complete my make up but recently, I’ve been hearing loads about eyelash extensions.
What are eyelash extensions?
The experts say “Eyelash extensions are applied in salons by specially trained therapists. Individual synthetic lashes are carefully bonded to your existing lashes.”
How Long Do Eyelash Extensions Last?
The experts say “Around eight to 12 weeks if you look after them. The extensions will drop off as your eyelashes naturally shed, so you’ll lose about 12-15 lashes every two to three weeks.”
My eyelashes with false lashes & the look I would want to achieve;
Putting a set of eyelashes on completely changes a look, adding an instant dramatic eye. I love the way they can change my eyes and make me feel better about myself as silly as that sounds! (It is true).
I’ve had a look around for salons in Glasgow and the prices range from £55.00 to around £80.00 for an hour/two hour session, which I think is amazing considering I buy £7.00 pairs that last for a day! I think I will book an appointment!
If you have them/have tried them, let me know your thoughts, I’m always keen to hear what you guys think!

Hi and aww, thank you very much!! :)
I wouldn’t say that a certain brand can always produce a great mascara but some really good mascaras I’ve found to really work on lengthening the lashes are; Benefit Bad Gal mascara, Dior Show, Max Factor 2000 calorie & Rimmel Day 2 Night mascara. These are just to name a few from the top of my head. Look for applicators with a bigger brush as I tend to find they work best for lengthening and thickening the lashes!
Hope this helps :) x
