Okay, so if you keep up to date with my posts on this, which isn’t hard right now because I haven’t been posting as much as I would like, you will know I had an eyelash 3D extension about a month ago now and I just wanted to fill you in on how they have been and tell you some things about them!
First of all, when I got the eyelash extension I was so pleased with the results, not having to bother with any mascara was a god send. Fixing my make up for work was done within like 5 minutes because I didn’t feel the need for much make up as the extension made such a difference!
After the first week or two, they were starting to really annoy me, I’m not the kind of sleeper that stays in one place through out the night, so mostly every morning when I woke up, I had to try fix them back in place as they were going in all sort of directions. Still, they were easy to put back in place and I could deal with that.
Now, there are hardly any and really starting to bug me. The extensions will not come off my eyelashes without ripping out about 4 of my real eyelashes at a time. They are clumpy and when waking up in the morning, if the ones that are left are going in all sort of directions, I can barely budge them, forcing me to pull it out and out comes some of my actual eyelashes with it. I was told that if you use oil on them, they will loosen and simply come off but this is not the case at all. I’ve tried using oils, water, creams and everything else but they don’t seem to want to move.
So now, they just look rubbish and using mascara wouldn’t help at all, so it’s just a case of waiting for my eyelashes to grow and the extensions to fall out but my patience with them is not very high right now so I might book an appointment to have them removed and if i don’t have any eyelashes left, I might just cry (haha seriously).
Photo below is them right now, no make up on so you can see how they look;
(They look worse in this photo but I just wanted to show the extent of them by lifting up to show them!)
Would I get them again? Not too sure, I don’t like the fact my eyelashes are falling out along with the extensions, so probably not. I have heard they also ruin your real eyelashes, so you feel you always need the extension.
I just wanted to share this for anything thinking of getting them, as chances are, you will be told only the good things about them and not the bad! Hopefully this helps. All the talk about the way you care about them is rubbish because I have been super careful with them and they still have been all over the place!
Have you had them before? What is your experience? Let me know!

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 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!

So I know a lot of you guys have a hard time getting your liquid eyeliner the way you want it to look on your eyes, or even to get one eye the same as the other can be a difficult task. Sometimes, it might be the type of eyeliner applicator you are using though, so hold the blame for a second!
I find it difficult still when doing my liquid eyeliner, you get those days that it just doesn’t look right or your hand isn’t behaving and jumping around everywhere.
The Bourjois Clubbing liquid eyeliner is a really good eyeliner if you want to get in close to your lash line and give that perfect line.
With it’s very thin applicator brush, it makes it so much easier to get right into your lash line and stroke slowly to get the line you want to achieve. It is also a really good applicator brush for flicks or whatever you like with your eyeliner!
I find this eyeliner really good and most important, quick and easy to use. It’s pretty cheap as well, which is always good to hear and you can purchase it in shops like boots ect!
Just a wee photo to show you what it looks like when using one coat and following my lash line with a little flick!( Not saying it is perfect, I use liquid eyeliner everyday and still find it hard!

My skin is constantly changing depending on the weather outside and recently, I’ve been trying different foundations just for during the day at work, so nothing too heavy.
I bought the “Clinique Perfectly Real Makeup” foundationfrom debenhams for £21.50 just for a change and to give it a try. I hadn’t used a clinique foundation for a long, long time, so I was curious to see what it would be like.
This foundation claims to reduce redness, which made me want it more to be honest because it is hard to find a light weight foundation and cover my rosey cheeks at the same time. It also claims to give your skin that natural look but just with a better “real skin” kind of finish.
This is a really good foundation and yes, it does do what it claims to do. For me though, the coverage just isn’t what I wanted from it. It does feel lovely on the skin though, really does feel just like a moisturiser and so lightweight. I would say that this foundation could be a build-able coverage to a certain extent but I wouldn’t want to use too much, as it would take away from everything the foundation does, which is give lovely, real looking skin. If you don’t like your foundation to feel like, well, a foundation, you will love this as it really does just improve the look of your skin. I think I’ll keep this away for the more summer days when less really is more!
